Without any doubt, Google AdSense is the best ad network to rely on. In today’s scenario, every blogger will search a way to make money from their blog and without any doubt, AdSense would be the first option for most of the people online.
But before moving towards AdSense, I would recommend everyone to do some research to know the answers to frequently asked questions like what is Adsense? how do they work? where to apply? etc. If you don’t have time to do such research works read this article fully to understand A to Z about Google AdSense.
Ways To Earn Money From Blogging
I would prefer three ways to make money from blogging. Through Ad networks or by Affiliate Marketing or by guest posting.
Ad Networks: This process is simple. You have to register online. Wait until your application is approved. Paste the code provided by the network on your blog or website. That’s it, the ads will be automatically displayed on your blog. Google Adsense belongs to this type.
Affiliate Marketing: Affiliate marketing is another way of earning money from your blog. Once you are registered and approved, you will be provided with a tracking URL using which you have to sell the product of that affiliate network.
Guest Posting: It is nothing but providing your articles to be published on others blog or website. There are many websites which will pay to write for them. Check this list of 120 sites that pay up to $150 for a guest post.
It has other advantages like reaching a new set of audience, getting backlinks, more traffic etc.You can guest post for BackEnd Bloggers also, here we are ready to provide you with back links.
What is Google Adsense?
Google Adsense is the best contextual ad network. It has two kinds of customers named advertisers and publishers. Advertisers are the one who gives publicity to their product or company by means of the texts, images. videos etc. Publishers will add those images, texts, and videos on their blog.
The major advantage of using google adsense is that it generates advertisements based on the content of the blog, cookies generated by users search history, geographical location etc. Likewise, Google is doing everything to reach their target audience.
PAYMENT THRESHOLD: $100
How To Apply For Google AdSense?
Before applying for adsense, ensure that you fulfill the following requirements.
- You must have a website or blog.
- You must be 18+ or else you have to use your parent’s credentials to sign up.
Like any other signup process, you have to register for Adsense using your existing email address or by creating a new one now. The sign-up page of google adsense would be something like the image below.
After signing in, you will be displayed with another form. All you have to do is to type the website address in the text box and select your website language in the drop down button. Click Next.
Now you will be in the Account Payee Information form. This is the important part of the signup process. A single mistake in this form will screw you later definitely because you won’t be allowed to change your information later. Changing existing information is difficult in some countries including India and China.
Payee name must be filled as in your bank account. Once finished adding all required information, click the Finish button.
AdSense Approval Process
From 2016, Google changed the approval process into a simpler one. The approval process includes
- Signing Up for Google AdSense.
- Copying the code to your blog.
- And wait for 48 hours for approval.
- Verifying your address through mail
I recommend you to read this guide on Adsense approval process for the more detailed information.
What To Do If AdSense Rejected Your Application
Yes, Ad Sense is the best ad network in the market. This is the reason why most of the bloggers wanted to join adsense. In Order to maintain their quality for advertisers, they only approve quality websites. If your site violates any of the Adsense TOS, then you can predict a rejection email straight away.
You can reapply for adsense as many times you like. Google will review your application each time and will send you the email explaining why your site is rejected. This is the main advantage of Google Adsense. The email will be containing the factors that your site violated during the approval process. All you have to do is to make necessary changes to your site, so that next time it doesn’t violate any TOS.
Like I already said, Ad network is not the only option for bloggers to earn money, You can also try Affiliate Marketing or even Guest Posting can get you enough money.
All you have to do is to Relax! Retry! Don’t Lose Hope!
