What Is Google Adsense?
Google Adsense is simply an Advertisement induction service in which Google serves (shows) ads (text, videos, rich media, images, etc.) based on the narrative of the content a reader is reading.
Adsense was set up for publishers, content creators, and bloggers to make money from blogging. This started in 2003 in the month of March.
Google is not just a search engine, it is an ad company and focuses on giving advertisers and publishers value for their money.
How Google Adsense Works
Google Adsense is all about monetization for both the advertiser and Google.
Simply put, Advertisers (businesses, individuals, etc.) come to advertise on Google through what is called bidding, Google, in turn, display their ads on your website, and once site visitors click each advert, you earn as well.
Adsense works based on CPC Cost Per Click and revenue sharing basis, meaning if you own a blog and signup for Adsense, each time a site visitor loads any of your pages, Google will serve that user an ad that’s relevant to the content he/she is on.
IF that user clicks on the advert (text, image, video, etc.) then you’ll earn a certain fraction of what the advertiser has paid Google. So, if you have tons of traffic and many users click, you’ll earn a lot.
Just so you know:
- Publishers get 68% of the amount Google collects from advertisers for content.
- Publishers get 51% of the amount Google collects from ads for Search
- 28% of Googles Revenue for the first quarter of 2011 came from Adsense
- The advertisements are controlled and managed by Google
- Google pays over $1 billion every month to advertisers across the globe.
To be able to start earning with Adsense, you’ll need to apply for Adsense (more on that soon), add a few lines of code given to you and ads will start showing on your site.
Interestingly, Google doesn’t charge you any signup fee to join the AdSense program, you’re only required to fulfill some requirements (this will be discussed soon).
In some scenario, Google pays you when visitors even see the ads. Overall, it makes your life easier as now your focus is only on writing quality content and driving targeted traffic.
