Advantages of Joining Google Adsense

Though there are many ways to use Google adsense; however the purpose is the same. It is to earn revenue or maximise revenue from your website or blog etc. It’s a steam that you can attach to your website or forum etc which will help you generate extra revenue in the existing conditions.

When you join the program you are not required to do any thing extra as a condition for having joined Google adsense program. Same techniques and things that you were doing earlier before joining it, for your website for promoting it can go on as it is, and yet your income will improve. This is the magic of this program.

If you have a website or blog, or forum, or eStore or whatever, through which you may be selling anything, books, ideas, consultancy services, products – which could belong to somebody else and you are just an affiliate promoting them thru your site, you could be selling ebooks on any subject, written by you or somebody else, nothing matters, as long as its not offensive by way of being violent, pornographic or drugs etc.

If it’s a straight forward product or genuine service that you are dealing in Google adsense will allow you to join their program and enjoy a new avenue for income. They should be convinced that you are serious about your business and want to stay with it for long and make genuine efforts to promote it.

What is Google Adsense?

AdSense is an easy to understand and implement, user friendly program that accepts people as members, who own website, or websites, and the websites are not about anything illegal. The program is quick and FREE to join. Takes some five minutes to join and no credit card, bank account, wire transfer, Paypal, nothing… it is one program that promises you an income without asking you to pay any fee at all. No money is involved except what you actually earn. And that’s one big truth of this program.

It is open to all kinds of websites; big or small; simple or complex; from one page brochure website to an online ecommerce store to a full fledged active forum; blogs or portals; Google adsense is open for one and all.

It holds attraction for small business website owners because it helps them to earn revenue. Not all small website owners may possess skills and resources for developing affiliate or advertising sales programs, or have a sales team that can generate revenue for them. For such people, Google adsense is a great option. It is readymade, turnkey program which can open an altogether novel source of income for them.

It has proved to be a boon for entrepreneurs, because they realise that their websites which have been sort of lying low, and not doing much by way of giving them sales, have suddenly woken up to a new income route, and is earning them revenue that they never thought was possible after they joined Google adsense. When website owners experience this first hand, they get motivated and start working harder on their websites to improve their Google adsense earnings and in the course, improve revenue by way of getting more sales of their core products too. This is the reason why I personally think that it’s a win-win-win deal!

Google adsense is a program that helps to display targeted ads on websites of people who join the program. Besides ads, `search button’ option is also available which owners can carry on their website for people to use who visit their website. By doing this they are opening yet another option for earning revenue that their websites will do for them. Website owners can earn money every time a visitor uses this search option.

Google adsense is for people who own one website or several of them; on same subject or topic or different. The program runs more effectively and earns revenue for a longer period of time, for those website owners who are serious about keeping their websites up, compared to those who are still confused and don’t know why they have the website in the first place and what they are going to do with it. If people go on replacing one domain name with the other, or they consider doing away with it in future, for such people, Google adsense makes comparatively less sense.

However I personally have been witness to exceptions here too. I have seen some people start website with fickle intentions and they worked on it for sometime, then just for the lark of it joined Google adsense and to their surprise the website which was just a `one off’ thing for them was actually earning them some revenue! Not much, but money was tricking nevertheless.

So they decided to give it a try and worked a little harder as an experiment and they saw the revenue uptick. And this made them more confident and that’s when the entrepreneur sensibilities in them took over and they decided to go full time into it and today they are at a position where they themselves had not set eyes on, but for Google adsense, they would not be where they are!

Why Choose Google Adsense?

Google adsense is the most sought after revenue generating program for website owners irrespective of size of their websites. It is a complete program in itself. Advanced, systematic, sorted, logical, plus easy to use and implement. Above all ONE HUNDRED PERCENT EFFECTIVE.

If you own a website that is not working for you as expected for whatever reason, instead of feeling disgusted or considering giving it up, you can check out the One & Only option of its kind called the Google adsense.

Irrespective of what you are or were trying to sell on your site, products; advice; ideas; consultancy services; whatever if the returns have not been up to the mark, discuss the same with an expert and do consider giving Google adsense a chance. Any aspiring entrepreneur wanting to succeed online should try it once.

Besides being free and easy to join, it offers steady cheques once you get going; covers multiple markets. This means website owners coming from anywhere; any industry; related to any subject or field under the sun; or involved in any industry; are free to join it without giving it a second thought.

The program is advanced software, developed by the best brains, with hardly any scope for mistakes that will lead to any kind of monetary loss or out of context, hidden, and absurd policies. Another outstanding feature is that Google adsense is not about hard selling. The person joining the program with an objective of earning money needn’t necessarily be a skilled sales person. It’s far above the average network, viral, pyramid, chain, and affiliate, kind of marketing programs that are all over the net howling for attention.

Another thing about Google adsense is that it will seamlessly gel with the existing theme of your website. It can work independently or with other programs too. I mean whether your website is selling fashion accessories, or computer accessories & software; or it is talking about teenage problems; or fitness, or music; mediation, Emotional Freedom Techniques; whatever it is – Google adsense will gel with all these with equal ease.

When you join Google adsense, rest assured that you are with genuine people. And that the money showing in your account is absolutely genuine and you can transfer it to your bank by wire anytime you want. Its as clear and honest as that.

The flip sides of this program are if you do not have a website or a blog or forum – meaning if you have not created space for yourself online, this program may not be of any use to you. If you are not serious about making a success online, then again this program is not for you. When I say serious, I don’t mean serious about making money, because, that everyone is. I mean serious about the work that would go behind it. Because Google adsense not a magical wand, it is work.

So if you are ready to work your way through, and taste success, you are welcome to the world of Google adsense! Come learn more about it.

Why Would Google Adsense Not Accept Your Registration?

Beginners who register with Google adsense with much enthusiasm sometimes get a jolt and feel dejected when they receive notification from the Ad sense help desk, informing them that their application is rejected. And since they are just starting out it takes them no time to get disheartened and start thinking all kinds of thoughts. When they find themselves in this spot, they should find someone who will assure them that getting accepted in Google adsense is not a very tough job after all. One just needs to be aware of things in advance and should have done their homework properly.

Your application to join the program will be declined in majority of cases because applicants may be violating policies knowingly or unknowingly. This means that you have not read details about the program or have failed to understand them clearly. Sometimes they do mention the exact reason for which your application was rejected, but sometimes a general email is received from them without stating a reason which merely informs that your profile is rejected. So lets discuss some reasons and possibilities that would lead to your account with Google adsense being rejected.

They may reject your application on the grounds of Plagiarism, i.e. copied content. Copied content means duplicate content or content lifted from somebody else’s website. Plagiarised content is your biggest enemy; on the contrary original, simply laid out, clear cut content, no need to flash bombastic ideas or heavy words that belong to somebody else, nothing will hold you in better stead than content that you have sourced or written yourself. Original content will prove to be your greatest and permanent friend. So before you submit application ensure that you have copyrighted material on your website. It’s not copied from elsewhere on the web or from any book, forum etc.

Google adsense sometimes also rejects websites if they are absolutely brand new. They have been seen to accept applications of people whose websites are at least four to six months old on the net more comfortably. So what you should do is publish original content on your site, and let it be on the net for a few months and during this time go on adding some worthwhile content by adding new pages in the mean time.

Google adsense will also reject applications from people whose sites have adult content nothing withstanding. Even if the content is original, and even if it has been around for four to six months! Likewise their policies do now allow pornographic displays, sites selling drug abuse (as in cocaine etc), gambling sites, sites that promote violence either.

Sometimes, rarely though, Google adsense applications are rejected for simple reasons like, absence of clearly laid out policy page, contact page etc. The team will check your details in whois information and verify your profile and registration. Anything hanky- panky and you are out. If by chance, a wrong type of site (on any pretext) that does not get noticed by their software and team and you are allowed to join the program and start making good money, let me tell you sooner than later they will scan you and ban you from joining them forever and wont pay you.

After this how much ever you may request them, there are no chances of them considering you back into the program. If they are so strict, which they are, you can imagine their demand and credibility.

What Makes the Google Adsense Number One Choice For People?

When I survey webmasters, bloggers, e commerce website administrators, forum administrators and ask them to list their preferred methods to make money from their respective spaces on the net, AdSense is always listed at the number one position. Their reason is that it is a quick to install and easy to understand as a program.

AdSense is what they say a contextual advertising program. When publishers are accepted into this program, all they are required to do is insert a coded sequence to their blogs or websites, forums, e commerce sites or whatever they have. Inserting codes is a back end job. These codes help the program software to analyze the page content and accordingly display ads on a topic relevant to content.

When this happens, it gives your visitors a choice, an option to click on these advertisements. By doing this he is able to visit the website of the advertiser. And this click earns you your revenue. This means that if the visitor is not interested to buy your product, you can still earn revenue from such a visitor by facilitating him with options to visit other sites.

Apart from contextual advertisements AdSense also facilitates many other income streams like site search and referral tools which are again based on your visitors using them while on your site.

Website or forum with high visitor traffic, particularly like to use AdSense because it earns them lion’s share of their revenue. Ask anybody worth his salt and he or she will recommend the program as the best way to make your website or blog work for you. Whether you are a seasoned individual (in which case you’d already know about Google adsense program) or just starting out, Google adsense is a program that you must register with to make some extra money off your website.

Not only that it is easy to understand or quick to implement, you are free to log into your ad sense account and track your earnings on hourly basis, by minute if you want. Once your earning figure reaches a certain level, then you come under scan where your activities are tracked on an ongoing basis. This is just to make sure that you are not doing anything unethical and stuff that is now allowed as a policy. Ad sense has worked very hard and goes on improving itself day after day therefore it also does everything within its means to guards program’s reputation very possessively.

On Which Blogs or Websites will Google Adsense Not Work or be an Effective Option?

Most times when discussion related to Google adsense comes up stories generally revolve around most success, ascending pay check amounts, snapshots of earnings, testimonials from small time business websites making a fortune; Ad sense being a game changer and all. All or most of which may be absolutely true.

Google adsense in that sense is a money making machine for websites. Sometimes for some people who had websites selling products and services; and the website owners never paid attention to Google adsense, when this lot joined the program, some of these guys could not believe that they were earnings money that never imagined it was possible to. They get so intrigued with this new stream springing out of nowhere. And the program is such that it does not come in the way of the original topic or theme of that website. Nothing seems out of place or artificial or stuffed. On the contrary, the program seamlessly gels with the website content.

However there are exceptions to the rule. There are some kinds of websites which will not make much money when they join this program. Several research organizations who have conducted a research have seconded this. The main reason being this is the topic of the website.

Political news blogs or websites, or any forum, etc that has a political inclination, in such spaces, ad sense is not very likely to work. Sometimes Google adsense also works against such websites in a certain way. And if at all there are earnings they are extremely low. Websites or Blogs talking about technology, gossiping about celebrities, Agony Aunt or Advice blogs and forums etc are also tough nuts and don’t earn much revenue for their owners by way of Google adsense. These blogs and websites may be attracting high traffic and eyeballs but still Google adsense does not get benefited from it.

Likewise, sports blogs and websites also are low in the earning run; again these might be drawing high traffic but no use where this program is concerned. Adult content (as in pornography) is something ad sense does not allow as a policy per se; religion is also a topic not too high on the Google adsense earners list.

So if you are joining Google adsense, or starting a website only so you can earn through Google adsense then, it is better that you steer clear of these topics, how-much-ever close they may be to your heart.

How Can You Make Your Google Adsense Earnings Grow?

Google adsense is a way to make money for people who own space on the net by way of websites, blogs, forums etc. It’s a easy to implement program and is free to join. There is nothing hidden about it. And most website owners who are up to do business online and earn money will vouch for it. People are free to take up ad sense full-on and make it their sole source of income via the website or blog, or can also combine it with other products and services that they are already selling and in that case its one of the sources for earning money online.

The kind or amount of money you make with Google adsense will depend on the type of site or blog you have, and the kind of traffic it gets. More the traffic more the earnings; less the traffic, low the revenue. The money you earn will be directly proportional to the traffic of your website but for exceptions.

If traffic to your site is low and you join Google adsense possibility is that you won’t earn much in the first few months, but once you start working towards diverting more traffic to your blog or website, you will be able to see earnings going up. You can check your earnings 24 X 7. Your money will be transferred to your bank or in PayPal if you have PayPal account. It is for the account holder to keep a tab o changing policies related to release of payments, minimum amount, verification of their identity etc. They are also free to use one Google adsense account on as many websites as they have. They just have to register their new websites or domain names to their Google adsense profile.

Google adsense allows its costumers to keep a day wise and week wise check on it to know how your efforts to improve traffic are having a direct impact on your Google adsense earnings. And when traffic improves, exposure of your core products and services will also improve and they will reach chunk of people. This may also lead to overall growth for you. Meaning, as traffic goes up, so will your Google adsense earnings; and so will sales of your core products and services. This is indicative of your website growing as a whole. It also means you have to continue to put in efforts to stay where you are or improve.

Efforts- Traffic- Earnings – this is in the right order for the cycle. It can be explained as; efforts will bring traffic; traffic will bring earnings; earnings will motivate the blog or website owner to continue to put in efforts and so on….

How to Get Accepted in Google Adsense Program?

Google adsense is a program that can run on your existing website, blog, ecommerce store, or forum and will earn you income on an ongoing basis. If you don’t have any of these, then Google adsense is not for you. There is a way to join this program. Though it’s free to join there is a procedure to be followed to get accepted into the program. And they have rules, regulations, and policies that you have to agree to adhere to before they take you in. Plus after you have submitted details required by them, they will verify them and only if they find everything up to their satisfaction, will they approve of your profile and allow you to have an account with them.

In this lesson we will discuss what those criteria are and, the best way to seek their approval. First they will check your email id whether it is genuine. For which they will send you a confirmation link on the email address submitted by you, which they will ask you to click on to confirm it’s the same address. Once that’s over with they will check your website, blog, forum, estore and whether it’s paid hosting or free.

They will also check the length of time that your website has been around. They generally do not approve of brand new just launched websites. Therefore it is advised that you wait a few months and work on your site before submitting them for approval or getting an account with them. Then they will check the content on your website from various angles. To see if it is offending in anyway is their first priority. If it is a pornographic site with or without displays or a site or blog promoting violence, be sure your site will be rejected.

If your site has content but it is copied from all over the net and nothing is original about it. Even if your site’s design is an exact replica of somebody else’s it’s a reason for them to reject your site. They are looking for organic sites with organic and clean content.

Suppose based on all the above they approve of your site and Google adsense starts working on your site and you do something illegal later on, as soon as Google adsense finds it out through its sensitive advanced software they will cancel your account. If they feel it could be a mistake or may have been done due to oversight, they may send you a notification or a few warnings but that’s extremely rare. And once your site is rejected on these grounds, whatever you do, how much ever you explain to them or apologise, nothing will work. For them rules is religion. You should not have broken them in the first place, or should have been careful that it doesn’t happen even due to oversight or out of ignorance. They entertain no complaints. They are politely when you write to them, but once they call it funeral – its funeral!

They are an excellent program that earns millions for people worldwide who do it right and stay within rules so they can afford to be strict. An original site on any acceptable topic in the world with original content and new content and good links being added regularly will never ever be rejected by them. On the contrary they are looking for people like that to join them.

The Rewards I Have Received from Google Adsense

Google will reward you if you make a reasonable monthly income through Google Adsense. Few years ago they sent me a beautiful radio which is also a night light that changes the light colors – Mood lighting AM/FM Radio:

They also sent me a booklet that contains 8 tips about improving your adsense revenue. You can have access to these 8 tips here:

http://google.com/8tips

This is how the booklet looks like:

How to Improve your Website Load Time?

In the modern era of web design, when improvement in internet speed and web browsers’ efficiency has raised the bar of user satisfaction, in order to provide the demanding audience with the optimal experience they expect, the web designers need to update their designs and improve their websites’ load times. Statistics show that website load times and winning the trust of your website visitors are so interrelated that you can’t ignore the importance of improving your website’s load times. Who can afford the loss of 40 percent of one’s website’s traffic, the de-ranking punishment that the google has announced for such owners is only going to add to the difficulties. That is exactly one of the reasons, so many businesses, if not solely, partially dependent on the online sale/purchase/advertisement, are getting inclined toward hiring professional developers that could not only keep them aware of where they stand in the world of online business and competition but could also use their expertise and experience to do whatever it takes to win the trust of more visitors and avoid the loss of existing visitors. This article’s purpose is to let you know those simple ideas that do not require much technical background in order to understand them and implement them and yet are sufficient and efficient enough to improve your site’s speed by a considerable amount.

First things first, in order to get rid of the problem, one needs to know the extent of problem, online tools like “Pingdom Website Speed Test” and “Google Analytics” allow you to know your site’s speed through easy to understand, color coded, charts. These tools help you know whether your website is in need of maintenance or which part of your website needs attention e.g. if the *.GIFs are the source of problem, it’s going to point out the very image that’s taking unusually longer length of time to load.

You might have heard the expression “Server’s down!”, this is how tech people convey that the demand of the website under consideration is more than the demand it could accommodate without slowing down the website. The more the simultaneously made HTTP requests such as requests for loading CSS style sheets, JavaScript snippets and images etc., the longer each of these elements take to load, the slower the website becomes. Among other factors that may significantly affect the load times of the website are: the size of individual files/images, inefficiencies in the code, browser caching, content delivery system you are using, content management system you are using and the hosting service you have signed up for. We are going to go through each of these contributing aspects one by one and suggest steps that could help in solving the problem at hand.

While it may seem convenient to make use of tools provided by your content management system e.g. “WordPress” to adjust the full-sized uploaded images in order to display them on your webpages, it overburdens your web browser by demanding the execution of multiple commands such as fetching the original images and resizing them to the desired size within a limited slot of time, causing the slowdown of your site. In order to avoid facing such problems, use image editing software to adjust your images to the right size before uploading them to your site.

One very useful and effective method that could help speed up your website’s loading speed tremendously and reduce server lag is that of browser caching. Browser caching allows your web page visitor’s browser to store cached versions of static resources; calling up the content from within the cache would be lesser time consuming than reloading the entire page every time the visitor feels like returning to your page in the future. Installing WordPress’s “W3 Total Cache” Plug-in is the easiest way to integrate browser caching to your website.

As the number of freely available plug-ins and scripts increase, so does the inclination of the web developers towards stuffing their websites with as much plug-ins as possible. What they don’t understand is the fact that each of these plug-ins, free or worth a few bucks, consume some resources in order to keep benefiting their user and the more the resources of your site get consumed by them, the slower it would perform. Do not add any new plug-in to your site until or unless the functionality it offers is worth the compromise with your website’s speed. One another option you could consider in order to avoid stuffing your site with too many plug-ins is that of coding the plug-in’s content in to your site’s theme.

Loading 5 images would always take more time than loading an image that is made up of those five images. In order to lower down the number of images to load and thus speed up your website, combine your images in CSS sprites. One way to create such image sprites is to use “Spriteme”, a program offered by “spriteme.org”. Make sure that you go through all the necessary installation instructions before you jump on to installation and do not forget to go through your CSS and make appropriate changes once image sprites have been created.

You can’t speed up your website considerably until or unless you get rid of coded road blocks that prevent your site from loading quickly. In order to make sure that your website’s scripts are up-to-date, you would need to keep looking for new and updated versions of these scripts. Script developers never stop developing and improving their scripts in order to meet the growing demand of efficient scripts and usually these new releases are accessible through the website of the CMS or e-Commerce platform you are using.

Last but not the least, while working with raw html pages, make sure that you keep your site’s code neat and put CSS files at the start of your code and JavaScript snippets at the end. The advantage of putting CSS files at the top of the code is that it saves the resources your website would use in progressive rendering and would thus lower the time it would take it to load. Calling JavaScript snippets at the end of your html document which is also known as deferring JavaScript parsing would prevent blocking of page rendering and would thus help speed up your website.

Working from Home Online; Good or Bad?

Only a few kinds of jobs could be done from home in the past but now internet has enabled us to work from home and be in touch with thousands or even millions of people. You can buy, sell, order, read, write, distribute, announce, advertise and … from home just through a small desk computer. This is the power of internet. I know people who make up to $1,000,000 per year, just by a few hours of working from home. They buy and sell the things that they have never seen them.

So is it good or bad? If you ask those who have to get up early morning everyday and drive to work and spend several hours of their valuable time driving in heavy traffic and then return home after a stressful business day, you will see that they all love to work from home. Yes, it is really good because I was one of these people. I was used to spent about 3 to 4 hours per day to go to work and return home. It was terrible and I had no energy and patience for anything when I returned home.

I was already familiar with internet and I worked for a company as a web designers and network manager but I had never thought about working from home through the internet. One day I saw an ad in a newspaper talking about becoming an online salesman, selling goods and earning commissions. It attracted me. I called them and signed up for their course. It was just a 10 hours course talking about e-commerce and specially SFI. They referred me to SFI and then my uplines thought me how to work online and make money. I learnt everything about internet marketing and could refer more than 25,000 people to SFI in less than two years. It was fantastic and my achievements amazed many of the other internet marketers.

But it was not that easy at the beginning. It is exactly like travelling to a city that you have never seen before. Even people of this city talk in a different language and you can’t talk to them and ask them any questions you want. It will be so hard to find out where to go and what to do. Most people give up and although they believe that the city is so beautiful and lovely, but as they can not talk to anybody and find a friend or someone who guides them, they prefer to leave the city.

Yes, most people who try to work online, just give up at the first a few months or weeks of trying and only a limited number of hard-working and serious people insist, struggle and win. The first 8 months of my online business was terrible. I wasted a lot of money and didn’t make even one single cent. I am sure 99% of people would forget about it if they were in my shoes. My wife was not happy because she saw that I spent a lot of money, sitting at computer for several hours after I returned home from my full time job, without making any success, but I always repeated this sentence in my mind: “If the others can, I can too”.

I saw this sentence on SFI website that “If it is to be, it is up to me”. It really influenced and encouraged me to work harder and harder. It made me so happy when I earned my first commission. It was as low as $5 but when I saw the money in my account, I realized that I was not wrong, it really works and I am able to do it. When I learnt what to do, I made $30 at the first month. It became as high as $2,000 per month after just a few months and became over $23,000 per month after one year.

Tasos Vasilopoulos, from Greece, was the person who I learnt many things from him. He was one of my SFI uplines. In fact, he gave me the success key, and of course he made lots of money through my activities in his team.

So if you ask me that “is working from home good or bad?” I will say they are really good and they can change your life. This is what they have done for me, and so I recommend it to you. I don’t know about the others but I encourage people to do what I have experienced and am happy with it.
