This is the first step you need to complete for gettings ads on your website. You need to have a valid gmail address. So if you don’t have one you create it here or create it separately. But you should have one. So you need to provide your email address and URL to your blog. It can be on blogger as in snapshot above or any other platform.
Step 2 : Ad the Adsense Code to your blog
Once you signup is done you will get a code to add to your blog.
you need to place the code in your blog. Now different platforms have different way of doing it. For blogger it is quite easy, as blogger is from google so quite well integrated with adsense. But for other platforms like wordpress you have plug ins available using which you can place the ad.
Now I will have a separate tutorial on how to get the ads code placed on your blog, and you can also figure it out. There are lot of material available on google itself and you can read adsense documentation.
But honestly it is very easy and will hardly take 1 hr of your time. if you still have questions write back to me or leave your comment in the comment box below.
Step 3: Wait for you request to be reviewed and approved by google.
this is the final step. google will review your site and then will check if you are eligible for this program. Google has few parameters on which it checks, but the quality of your content ie. quality of your website and expected traffic on your website is key. That is why I keep on saying you need to be passionate about what you are writing. If you are writing about travel lets say, you should know about the place and should have experienced it to write best about it.
This step may take few days to few weeks. So you have to keep patience. you will be able to login to your adsense account and look at the status. Once approved you will see something as below..
And once your approval is ready you will start seeing ads on your website. And you can start monitoring your performance.
How much you can earn using adsense
Now this is the most interesting part and important part. You will also be interested to know about this right? I will start by saying sky is limit and hard work and quality are two key parameters. But let me start with minimum.
Google has couple of models and criteria by which it make the payment for the ad it places on your blog. Now two main models are CPM and CPC. Ie. Cost per Impression or Cost per Click.
If some one is one your webpage, the no. of ads impressions they see on the webpage is what drives CPM. While if they click on one of the ads, that drives CPC.
At minimum you get around $1 per 1000 impressions.
So now if you have to earn Rs 1000 per day means you need to make around $14 per day.
If $1 is per 1000 impressions, it mean you need to have around 14000 impressions per day.
Even if I take 1 impression per page visit, you would need around 14000 page visits per day. This may look difficult but with millions and millions of internet users this is not difficult. If your content is good people will come on your blog and you can easily make around Rs 1000 per day.
Isn’t it wonderful?
There are thousands of blogs getting created on a daily basis. Many people start and after some time they just stop it. It is easy in the sense that you can make it work easily but still some hard work and passion is needed on the topic you are willing to write.
It is not possible that you just write one blog post and you start making money. You need to write consistently and with quality. Then only you will be able to retain people on you blog. Hard work is key. People think that they will open a blog write one paragraph and done. No that is not going to work.
So friends to make money using google adsense you need to be consistent. If you need more information do write back to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave your email in comment box below and I will respond back.
