SEO Forums: What is the role of Google AdSense?

SEO Forums

AdSense is one of my highest earners and has been ever since 2005. gets most of its revenue by letting other website holders to advertise on their search results pages. All this is accomplished through a platform they call AdWords (pay per click advertising). You see these ads showed above the free or organic results, and beside the right side of the page on These are known as Sponsored Results, and the promoters are paying a certain sum of money per click for these advertisements.

It’s a public sale based system that allows publicists to compete for those advertisement spots. Whomever has the maximum bid and most superior quality ad, gets the highest spot and so on. Now you can make a share of the revenue that Google earns from AdWords by showing these same text or duplicate advertisements on your site. When someone clicks, you earn approximately 68% of the click and Google catches the rest. And this year in 2011, it has reached a milestone of popularity in SEO forums since its launch at 2003.

The idea is simple. You show advertisements and get paid when people click. And occasionally just view the advertisement (generally it’s mostly clicks though.)

The commission you collect per click hinge on how much publicists are paying Google for the specific advertisement. You will earn a part of that sum. I’ve heard of incomes somewhere from 2 cents to $15 each click.


Receiving over $1 is perhaps very rare, although it does occur from time to time. Yet, you will find that maximum of your pays will be on the lower end of the range. It’s vital to note that I cannot guess how much you will make based on your traffic.

People continuously want to know what the regular amount is per click. But no one knows the answer to this but Google. So don’t let anybody try to tell you any unlike. It would be difficult for myself or any AdSense issuer to give this info. Because the advertisements cost dissimilar prices and we have no idea what advertisers are investing.

There are few niches that apparently pay more. So it is reasonable to believe that keyword phrases like how to make money, get a girlfriend etc. may get you more per click. Because these are extremely competitive keywords that are searched for rather a bit more. The more competitive the search word, the more the publicists pay.

    Sites that contain ads for beer, liquor or tobacco products are not allowed to participate in the Google Adsense program.

    Google has standards to which they adhere and there are certain sites that they don’t want their advertiser’s ads on.

    If you already have a website that showcases your wares or you’ve been thinking about getting one, that’s great.

    A good guideline to go by might be if a site is family oriented.

      Sure, you’ll have to ensure they get better placement, so as to be noticed but despite that they don’t bother viewer’s as much as traditional ads. Think about the many sites you’ve seen using pop-ups, floating banners and many other schemes that will have visitors screaming in anger every time they visit the said website. You can actually do better then that, annoying people less and still making an amount of money.

      It’s free to join the AdSense program and it almost takes no time at all. The potential database of websites from AdWords is larger then anything you might encounter from any competitor, numbering over 150.000 users. This means as more people compete the CPC or cost per click for search terms will inevitably rise.

    If the site you are considering promotes gambling, drugs, even prescription drugs then it is not suitable for the Google Adsense program.
