This post is part of a series of posts for beginners those who want to start career as a web entrepreneur.
One of the most widely used and easiest strategies to make money online is by building your website or blog and adding contextual ads to it. Google Adsense is the best and most famous contextual ad program. Adsense allows sites to make money free online by displaying relevant, text-based, un-obtrusive ads from Google AdWords (Google’s own advertising program) and receiving a share of the pay-per-click payment. Adsense pays you on CPC (cost per click) bases. It means when someone visits your site and he clicks on an ad, you get paid for that click. The more popular and visited sites you have, the bigger your earnings from Adsense.
Higher the number of visitors = Higher the number of clicks on ads = Bigger your earnings.
To get started you need a website or a blog, for this you need to register a domain and purchase web hosting. But don’t worry even if you don’t own a domain and web hosting. You can get free web hosting and a subdomain from services like Blogger.com
After you have created your website and added content to it, you can join Adsense. Its is easy to join, it doesn’t cost you anything, all you have to do is paste a few lines of code into your pages, and Google does the work of finding the best ads for them from hundreds of thousands of AdWords advertisers.
In next post we will discuss how to creat a basic website to get started. Stay tuned 🙂
