Add Cents With AdSense

One thing that a lot of people try to do with blogs, websites and just online in general is make money. You know, that green stuff that runs the world? Ya, some people actually want that stuff. Well this blog is for those people, or for those people starting out that don’t know where to start.

If you have just started a new website or blog and want to make a little extra money with it, the first thing I would suggest is using Google AdSense. Now of course, AdSense is a visitor based ad program that makes money based on how many times it is viewed and clicked. But just starting out, you don’t have that many visitors. That’s ok, because the main goal here is to get more visitors and once you get them, you are going to want to have this AdSense already on your website and just watch it rack up the money.

Alright, lets get started. Go to Google AdSense and make an account. You can use an existing Google account if you already have one (which you should…).

You’ll get a screen with something like this every time you log in. This page is you home base and can tell you how many people are viewing and clicking your ads on a daily basis and see how much you are actually making too. The AdSense for Content is the portion of AdSense we will be focusing on for today. But lets get started making some ads!

Go ahead and click the AdSense Setup tab on the top of the page. Here you can see all of the different ways you can advertise with Google AdSense. Now click the AdSense for Content link. From here on you will be able to customize the types, colors, sizes, shapes and topics of your AdSense ads.

Eventually you will end up at the code portion of the setup. Now all you have to do is copy and paste that code wherever you want the ad to show up. Post it into the html of your website or into your WordPress plugin area. Here are a couple of ads that I have made for my blog.

Content ads can come in either ‘Text ads’ or ‘Image ads’. You have to decide which one would be more conducive for your visitors to click.

Good luck with your AdSense ads and any other advertising ventures you may find yourself in.
