On Using Google Adsense

Recommended Posts

I am planning to have my own website and I was just wondering if you could fill-in some of my queries:

1. Is there gonna be pro and con in using this? If so, what are they?

2. Would you ever use Adsense again?

I am curious if Adsense is as good as it's made out to be. I could really use your reviews both negative and positive so as to arrive a good decision. Thank you! :rolleyes:

I'm not sure if it works as a long term investment or not. My sister recently told me that her boyfriend tried it and made a little money starting out, but when he got to a certain amount of money for a payout, his account was canceled. I would try it if I had the money to get started.

Hope this helps you with your decision.

Hi Dianne,

Adsense can be a supplemental income source from your website, with very little effort on your part. Of course, the main factor as always, is traffic! Without traffic you won't earn much at all.

To get started with Adsense is totally free, unless you consider your own domain and hosting. Try with a free Blogger blog to start with.

The other major consideration is the purpose of your website/blog. Bearing in mind that Google will present ads based solely on the content of your page, if the purpose of your site is to promote a product/service for profit, I wouldn't go with Adsense. That would be like opening a McDonalds restaurant, then plastering the walls with Red Rooster promotions!

A blog or website aimed purely at providing useful information will do better with Adsense. Your visitors will leave eventually, so why not have the opportunity to profit when they do? Naturally, if you were after potential customers, you don't want them exiting to the oppositions' website.

Also be aware that Google will look for any opportunity not to pay you your earnings :crybaby: Be sure to thoroughly read their TOS. Clicks to your own ads is the quickest way to get your account cancelled, without payment.

For me it has been a long haul. Lack of traffic being my main problem. I did receive a payment from Google last year ($116.00), but it took over 6 months to earn. Still, it's money for nothin' really, so not complaining.

Hope that sheds some light on the subject for you.

Cheers,

Phil(aussiegold)
