Although you can find dozens of ad servers through a simple Internet search, Google’s AdSense is the best in the business. In June of 2003, AdSense took the marketplace by storm and hasn’t relinquished its control yet.
Most of the top blogs and websites you’ll find around the web today all have one thing in common – AdSense ads.
The process is extremely simple to understand. You sign up for a Google AdSense account, submit your site, and if accepted, you will receive generated codes (html scripts usually) for the types of ads you prefer.
With Google ads, you can adorn your site with banners (rectangular ads by the header or footer), skyscrapers (tall, slender ads running down the side), buttons (small, box-shaped ads), and even in-video overlays and other fantastic ad types.
AdSense offers pay-per-click advertising, meaning that you will receive money every time a valid click is recorded, and also pay-per-impression, which logs your site’s visitors and pays out in more of a bulk fashion.
Overall, AdSense can be extremely lucrative based on your particular site’s traffic, and millions are using it.
One big problem, however: Many people are being denied by Google AdSense!
If you’re attempting to make some money online and are thinking of employing AdSense to beef up your odds, make sure you read these tips before submitting your site to Google. As a company, Google is becoming extremely selective about whom they’ll let into their coveted ranks. So before you get started, make sure you set the stage to impress the marketing giant.
Five Easy AdSense Tips
1. Completion First
The first step in this process should be to make sure that your site is completed. Make sure your site is fully operational, meaning that all the graphics, content and other odds and ends work and are finalized.
2. No Copyrighted Content
Google may or may not put your site under a microscope. But in case they do, make sure you have zero copyrighted content on your site. This will be an instant rejection.
3. No Outdated Content
Google doesn’t waste their time much these days with poorly maintained sites. If you have old, out-of-date content, your site will come across as if no one maintains it.
4. No Profane Material
AdSense doesn’t get along well with profane sites. If you have any X-rated material on your site or even anything that can be deemed offensive (bigotry as an example), Google will reject you in a second.
5. No Domain Conflict
You need to outright own your domain for at least 90 days before Google will accept your site for AdSense. This isn’t always the case with a blog, as a blog address is a shared address on the particular blog’s servers (think Blogger). But for legitimate websites, you need to wait. Be patient and take this time to create and present a good site.
When marketing a website of any kind, whether it’s a personal blog or a legitimate e-store, patience is paramount. Build your site, test it, traffic it a bit, make sure you work out all the bugs, take care of your content, and then submit to Google. Once they see what a great site you have, they’ll gladly approve you.
