Text ads come from Google AdWords, which is Google's advertising program. Advertisers bid in a silent auction to advertise for each keyword.
AdSense also supplies image and video ads through AdWords.
If you use AdSense ads on search results, the search results must use the Google search engine.
You may not click on your own ads or encourage others to click on your ads with phrases like "Click on my ads." You must also avoid mechanical or other methods of artificially inflating your page views or clicks. This is considered to be click fraud.
Google also restricts you from disclosing AdSense details, such as how much you were paid for a keyword.
How to Apply:
You can fill out an AdSense application directly at www.google.com/adsense
You can also apply from within your Blogger blog.
The application process may take several days before approval.
AdSense Locations:AdSense is divided into two basic locations.
- AdSense for Content
- AdSense for Search
AdSense for Search covers ads placed within search engine results. Companies, such as Blingo can create a custom search engine using Google search results.
- CPC, or cost per click ads pay every time someone clicks on an ad.
- CPM, or cost per thousand impressions ads pay for every thousand times a page is viewed.
- Cost per action, or referral ads are software ads that pay for every time someone follows a link and takes the advertised action, such as downloading software.
Google for Search results only use CPC ads.
Payments are generally monthly by either check or electronic funds transfer. US residents must supply tax information to Google, and the income you receive will be reported to the IRS.
It's also possible to make content with keywords that nobody has purchased through AdWords. When this happens, you will only see Google public service ads, and those do not generate income.
You don't have to be big or famous to start using AdSense, and the application process is simple. You can even insert ads in your Blogger blog, so you don't need to host your own Web site.
AdSense acts like your own ad broker. You don't have to negotiate prices or find appropriate advertisers. Google does that for you, so you can concentrate on creating quality content and publicizing your Web site.
