Learning how to make money with Google Adsense is probably the easiest way to make money online.
In this article, I will show you what it takes to make money with Google Adsense and more importantly, how I got started making money with Google Adsense.
Get ready for some interesting screenshots……
How Much Money Can You Make With Google Adsense?
The sky is the limit, frankly.
But one thing about Google Adsense is that you are not likely to earn a lot of money right from the beginning.
Seriously ask yourself this question:
Would you like to be paid $4k a month? Or being paid $0 in the first month but getting a pay rise of $100 every month thereafter?
If your answer is the former, Google Adsense may not be for you.
But if your answer is the latter, that’s the kind of money Google Adsense can give you – at the minimum!
What It Takes To Make Money With Google Adsense
I’ll keep my answer short. You need to:
Step 1) Conduct keyword research
Step 2) Churn out good articles based on the right keywords
Step 3) Build SEO friendly websites
Step 4) Build links (to boost your search engine rankings)
If you are new to internet marketing, every one of these 4 steps can be a challenge to you. But trust me, each of these 4 steps are simple skills that you can learn and master. Once you’ve mastered these 4 steps, you simply have to repeat the 4 steps again and again.
How I Started Making Money With Google Adsense
To tell you the truth, I had been making pennies from Google Adsense since 2004. But I started making ‘significant’ income from Google Adsense after I made a major decision in September 2006.
The major decision was to subscribe to PLRPRO, a premium membership site that gives you 440 unique articles a month in 11 different niches.
One thing I like about PLRPRO is that the founder has done all the keyword research. That saves my work in doing Step 1.
Churning out good articles in Step 2 is also easy, since I already have 440 articles to choose from.
Back in 2006, the only things I needed to focus on was Step 3 and 4. (Today, PLRPRO has grown so much that even Step 3 and Step 4 are semi-automated. With the latest PLRPRO that is launched today, the whole process has been simplified tremendously.)
Before you jump into building your Adsense empire, let me give you a preview of what you can expect.
As I mentioned, I subscribed to PLRPRO in September 2006. In that month, I only built two websites out of the 11 niches given to me. Apparently I wasn’t one of the hardworking members in PLRPRO.
Here’s my Adsense earning from the two websites in October 2006 – $17.57. Nothing impressive. (I purposely blur part of the website url so that you can look at the change in income for each website.)
In November 2006, I made $64.45 with Google Adsense from just two websites. No new website was added in that month.
In December 2006, I added 3 more websites. My monthly Adsense earning was $76.23.
The 3 new websites got established fast and in January 2007, I achieved my first three figure a month Adsense income. In January, I also added 2 new websites.
Things were starting to look promising, weren’t they?
In February 2007, my total websites increased to 9 and my Adsense income for that month was $349.19.
It’s worth noting that out of the 9 websites, 2 of them made me more than $100 a month!
Sidetrack: Take a look at my February stats again and look at my new website that start with www.rom….. I’m very fortunate to have built a website on this niche.
Because…… Look at what this website is making me now!
$626.54 a month from Google Adsense from just one website! I may be lucky on this niche. So far, it’s my best performing Adsense site.
Ok, let’s go back to my progress……
After 1 year, in September 2007, my Adsense income was $1099.62.
After 2 years, in September 2008, I made $2725.28 from Google Adsense.
Can you see how the income grow exponentially?
All the earnings I’ve shown above are from websites built using articles from PLRPRO, excluding my Adsense income from other sources. This gives you a better assessment of the potential of PLRPRO.
In my opinion, Adsense is the easiest way to make money online. As long as you are willing to work, you will surely make money. There is no need to know how to write good sales letters or presell affiliate products.
Moreover, in the process of making money from Google Adsense, you will master the skill of generating traffic from the Search Engines. With this skill, you can easily diversify into other ways of making money online, such as affiliate marketing.
