Can You Make Money With Google Adsense?

by 5 comments
Hello Everyone;

I am fairly new to the internet marketing thing and was wondering if you can make good money from having Google Adsense ads on your website?

Last month my beauty site had 164, 000 total vistitors (136,000 unique) and 1,400,000 page views. I heard that you only make a few cents per click on each ad.

My questions are:
1. Can you make decent money with Google adsense?
2. Is it hard to add to your site?
3. What would you estimate I could make a month seeing my totals? I want to make sure it can make some reasonable money and does not take away from my other sales.
4. Can you take it off if you do not like it?
5. I gain most of my rankings by getting listings in directories. Do they not frown upon having adsense on your website?

I appreciate all your advice.

    I have one adsense site at the moment, and here's the thing: the amount that you earn per click varies hugely depending on a number of factors including which keyword phrase people used to find your site and which ad they clicked on.

    I've literally had days where a click on an ad was worth only pennies but I've also had days where a click was worth a few dollars.

    It's very easy to take off, you can do it at any time.

    It sounds like you have a fantastic amount of visitors but without knowing what your site is about, it's impossible to say whether it would do well with adsense.

    Hi Sarah

    Congratulations on having a site with so many visitors. If you have alot of sales already it may not be worth adding adsense as it may decrease them.

    To test it why not set up an adsense account but only put ads on some pages. Then after a month compare traffic, clicks on the ads and your sales from both adsense and non afdsrense pages and see if you adsense pages make more money overall or less.

    Alternatively you could set up a new site just for adsense.

    Good luck

    1. Lack Of Strategy Many of the tools available to Internet marketers are either cheap or free. As a result, many new marketers are tempted to use them all at once. Successful Internet marketers begin with a strategy that identifies the goals of a campaign, the target audience and other key planning elements. Only then do they choose their tactics. Remember: tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat.

    After five years and almost one thousand projects, give it or take, I believe I have come up with a handful of more or less reliable signs that you're dealing with a bad client. I haven't reinvented the wheel, that's for sure. It's just like in that saying. Maybe I don't know what I want, but I certainly know what I don't want. The same goes here. Maybe I don't know how to find a good client, but I certainly know how to avoid a bad one. Also, I'm far from an ideal list. Sharing experiences regarding bad clients can help a lot. After all, we play in the same team. In addition, I strongly believe in Good Karma principle. Meaning, there's plenty of room and clients for everybody. Deal with real people not with avatars

    When people think of the term copywriter they will often imagine someone sitting at home or at a caf, tapping away at a laptop and churning out good copy for their immediate employer whether it be a one-off project or a long-standing relationship between a publication (online or print) and the copywriter. Now that might often be correct, but there are different types of copywriters out there. Lets have a look at the main types.

    The only way to handle having many massive daily goals is by doing them one moment at a time. Don't listen to the narrow-minded people who say that you have to focus on 1 thing and do it will at the expense of everything else. If you want everything, if you want to be financially successful, and healthy, and have great relationships, and be happy, and learn every day, and have family time and more, you're in luck, because you can have it all!
