If you are an affiliate marketer who has a website rich in niche content, you can earn additional income by joining the Google AdSense program. Google will display relevant ads on your content pages and will PAY you every time your site visitors simply click on one of the ads. They don’t have to buy anything or join any ‘membership’. All your website visitors have to do is CLICK the ad and YOU get paid!
Getting started is easy. Google will set up an account for you and provide you with a code that you need to display ads. Just insert the code into the content pages of your website and you can start showing ads right away.
Google’s search and page ranking technology will search for ads that are relevant to your content pages. This technology matches the primary language of your pages and the ads are targeted to your specific geographic location. This means that the ads shown to users in the United Kingdom, for example, will not be the same ads that appear on your website to users in Argentina. This ‘location targeting’ by Google makes ads relevant to all visitors to your website, regardless of where they reside in the world.
In order for your website to be accepted, your site must comply with Google’s program policies and may not contain profanity, harmful language, information about hacking, illegal drugs, pornography, gambling, or any other material that infringes the rights of others.
Google Adsense does NOT accept the following types of websites:
1. Websites About me
Google does not accept personal websites for its AdSense program. The reason for this is that most personal websites do not have a specific theme and are usually just a random collection of information about the website owner. Google looks for content-based websites that contain a lot of information on a specific topic. The website should have a central theme that all pages refer to.
2. Disorganized websites
Websites accepted by Google AdSense must be clean and easy for the user to navigate. All links must work and each page must have a consistent design. Typos and grammatical errors should be minimal or non-existent.
3. Not enough pages
Google prefers that acceptable websites have at least 20 pages. This allows a significant amount of targeted ads to be placed on the website to ensure that both Google and the publisher make money.
4. The site is not robust
A website with nothing more than links to other websites is not acceptable as a Google AdSense listing website. You must have enough CONTENT to make your website valuable to the visitor.
5. The website is not optimized for traffic
If your website is not optimized to receive many visitors, it will be difficult to generate any kind of income through Google AdSense.
6. The website violates Google AdSense policies
In conclusion, the Google AdSense program can generate passive income to content-rich websites. If you have one, contact Google to get started.
