How to Make Money from Google AdSense?
There is no alternate other than investing your quality time before applying for AdSense. We strongly recommend doing everything by yourself and avoid paying for scam services offering approved AdSense account. It is very simple to get your AdSense account approved if you follow the below steps.
1. Create a Site or Blog
Primary requirement for AdSense is a simple site or blog with quality content. There are plenty of free website builder tools available in the web including Blogger and Google Sites offered by Google. They are designed on drag & drop concept and you do not need any technical knowledge to use these tools. The website can be a video site, game site, mobile app or content site. Google offers ads for every type of available sites.
2. Bring Traffic to Your Site
Google most probably will reject your AdSense application if you apply with a newly created site. Displaying ads on your site makes no sense for Google if no one knows your site. The best way to tell people about your site is to submit your site for free to the search engines like Google and Bing. With millions of users searching internet, an appropriate search query leads your site displayed in the search results and bring quality and unique visitors to your web pages.
Google Search Console offers free submission of your site to show in Google search results. In the same manner Bing Webmaster Tools offers free site submission for Bing and Yahoo search. You can also use paid advertising services like Google AdWords and Microsoft adCenter (Bing Ads) to bring quality traffic to your site.
Never use any of the free traffic exchanges to bring traffic to your site. They do not bring quality and unique visitors to your site and use of free traffic exchange is strictly against AdSense policy. Also read the eligibility criteria for AdSense and ensure you fulfill all the requirements before applying for an account.
3. Monitor Your Traffic
We recommend to wait for at least six months to get decent traffic to your site. This is also a mandatory requisite for publishers from certain countries like India. Monitor your site’s traffic using Search Console and Google Analytics tools. Check out the search queries that drive users to your site and use search engine optimization techniques to help your site move up in the search ranking.
You will get approved with the site having a good traffic from search engines.
4. Apply for AdSense
After you are ready with your site with enough traffic, Apply for AdSense. Google will review your site content and traffic and send a response over a mail in a week time. Ultimately Google also wants to earn more revenue by displaying more ads in the web, the possibility of your AdSense account approval is very high if you had done your ground work well.
5. Make Money from AdSense
Start making money once your application is approved by placing ad codes in your site. You can place your ad codes in any number of sites complying AdSense Policies. If your application is rejected the reason could be any of the followings:
- Content copied from other sites
- No Quality content and No Quality Traffic
- Content of adult, violent or advocating racial intolerance
- Less Duration of Site Ownership
- Unreadable content due to excessive use of keywords
- Incomplete or Under Construction Web Pages
- You are less than 18 years old !!!
Figure out why you were denied approval and fix that problem and apply again, there is no limit on number of times you can apply for AdSense. Here are the sample AdSense rejection letters for reference to avoid the common mistakes and get your AdSense approval easily.
Any Shortcuts available ?
The answer is NO. Well, you can use AdSense revenue sharing sites to make things simpler for you at the cost of paying a portion of your AdSense revenue. Even though the approval process is same, some of these revenue sharing sites provide an integrated platform to create a free site or blog. But we strongly recommend you to work hard and get approval on your own.
