Video Guide And Tips For Making Money From Google Adsense

Many people spend a lot of time and effort on how to make money from Google Adsense on Hub Pages. It doesn't need to be this difficult, people! There are other sometimes easier ways to learn how to optimise Adsense and make an income from your web or hub page content. So this Hub will do just that. This is Cheeky Girl's Video Guide to making money from Google Adsense. I have selected some of the best videos on the net that honestly show you how to do this. Most of what you will learn is in the videos here. Let's begin!

The placement and position of Google Adsense on your hub page or website or (blog even!) can make all the difference. Below, is Darren Prowse, famous for the Problogger website and blog which he posts, and he talks about the changing of placement of his Adsense and how his earnings went way up as a result of that change.

This is important for anyone using Google ads on a blog. Much of our content now comes more so from mobile devices like iPads, iPhones and smartphone devices than PCs any more. So the way ads are shown is very changed. Big ads that appear on a web browser of a computer will be even bigger when they appear on a mobile device, due to the smaller screen size. So bloggers have cottoned on and are making ads appear in smaller blocks. What size you use is up to you. But the biggest tip here is to make sure your ads are in the article you have on a blog page now. the ads on the side bar are not as easily on a mobile small screen. So putting the ads in with the text is better or at least amongst the text but in a way that makes it stand out.

So what about Hub Pages? The good news is that Hub Pages does a great job of placing our Google Adsense on our pages for us! But you will truly appreciate this when you see this video below.

Many people who start off creating brand new Hub Pages complain about not making enough money from them and they notice that Google Adsense isn't paying out the large piles of Cash they were expecting. Yes, we all had that in the beginning too! But I realized that I was not doing things right. There are ways of using Google Adsense properly to get the most from it. Are the das being linked to your analytics in Google Adsense? Are you experimenting to see what locations on a page work best, and yield the most results? Are the ad appearance and colour and size a factor - or are your ads too invisible? I want to show you this video from a very smart lady who knows a lot about how to make solid earnings from that Adsense, and she addresses the mistakes we commonly make. More information below, but first - check this out.

People are asking lately in the case of Google Adsense, why their and why lots of other people's earnings are down and half of what they ought to be. That is a good topic to have here and so Lisa in this video will deal with this. Thankfully, if you find your earnings decreasing in Adsense, there are simple reasons why, so watch this video and fix the problem. Don't be disheartened. If a web page is not earning you income fro the ads, look again at your content. Look at the ratio of text and information to ads. Google limits most web pages to just 3 Adsense ads, for reasons to do with content. They need to know that you have some! It's the same on Hub Pages.

Is your content up to the standard? Is it unique, relevant, evergreen, fulfilling a requirement so that people would look for and use your content in some way? Does it have a purpose that makes it not just useful in some way but also findable in a search of a major search engine?

By now, you will notice the word "Niche" mentioned a lot. That is because having a niche makes the difference between earning lots and barely earning anything. If you have looked at my profile page on Hub Pages, you'll notice that Hubs I wrote on jobs and interviews all look similar and have common artwork in them. It is all about Niche! I love that word. Now watch this video.

I was surprised by the video above and what it says about some certain companies. But it is honest information. I am a big fan of this woman, since she talks about how she has made her money online. I cam across this gem about some little so-called "Secrets" behind her success. It's more of a brief history about the way back then times of the beginning of the decade for online earners, and how that compares to the present where ways of earning have changed and and continuing to change. You get a sense of the "then and now" of general blogging and online earning as well. I don't want the videos here to go too far off message, but this is worth checking out as it clears up some myths about Google and things like The Open Directory or DMOZ. Have you ever tried to register a hub page or website or blog on DMOZ? Thought so. Then watch this video.

Google Ads heatmap.
Google Ads heatmap. | Source

This is the official Google Ads Heatmap that is available from Google that shows where the best locations for ads are on a typical web page. As you can see, the darker the ad, the more heat or more attention it generates from views on the page, because of it's better placement. These guys went to the bother of finding out the best places on your pages for putting ads. This is kind of done for you here by HubPages on this site. But for your own blogs and websites - this map tells you a lot.

You should experiment with ad locations on a web page. See what locations work best for you. Every website or blog is different, because of what is deemed "content". How much of it is text and how much is visual? You see what I mean? Different pages will "read" differently.

Also experiment with different sizes of ads. With Adsense working on your own pages that you own or have more ads control of, you can try different sizes and colours. Adsense lets you personalize the way text colours appear, to make it style or format with a colour code or set on your individual website. It makes a big difference.

They say you should not let ads ever compete with your content. This is very true for content creators. That is you right there. Yes, have ads, yes have banners even. Yes - have links. Have backlinks, and do what works. But don't smother it in butter. Don't over-advertise on the page you create. Less can sometimes be more. Gaining revenue happens over time and it can be months before you see results. There are other ways even on Hub Pages to earn revenue from other ads systems - like Amazon, Hub Pages program or eBay. But those are other systems...

Never stop promoting your content but do not over-promote either. Remember that social media like Facebook, Twitter, Myspace, Youtube, Pinterest and LinkedIn all can help get your message out there. StumbleUpon and Digg are great social bookmarking ways to recommend your best content so others can share it.

Remember to network with the people and businesses if necessary, in your niche or area. Remember that guest posts can gain you traffic. So too can Press Releases, Youtube videos based around your niche or specialist interest. And following solid advice in Search Engine Optimization. Google Adsense should not be a tool you merely plug in, switch on and leave running in order to do a job. That sounds like an electrical appliance. Google is more specific, and also can - to newcomers - be complicated. Use Adsense wisely, and in accordance with their simple to follow rules to generate income from your traffic and content. Your content and your niche will decide a lot for you. Remember, you cannot make a good meal out of bad ingredients.

I truly hope that you have learned something from these videos on Google Adsense. This Adsense is not impossible to make money from. I am making money from it, and so can you. We all have to start somewhere. Sometimes it can be better sitting and watching people who have already gone out there and made the money and used Google Adsense to boost their income, just so we can learn how it is done. Some of the people in the videos above have had a little extra help in some ways and they share tips. I have become a convert to the Youtube revolution and people have their own "Channels" on there now and they are generating money from it. There are many ways to generate an income from the web, and Google adsense. I hope this hub has been of some help to to you. Please let me know.

Hello Art! Thanks for popping in here! First up! Yes, I am a true convert of Problogger - what he doesn't know isn't worth knowing. I do have some cracking vids of Lisa - a well known lady who has her own Youtube channel (and 2 successful websites), and she has a large pile of great videos to learn from. I have been a fan of hers for quite a while now. So I figured, why not make a hub with some of the best Video info for learning all about adsense. It's a fast and easy painless way to learn! I aimed the videos at beginners. Glad you like, moi friend! 2 new hubs in one night! Gonna put on a pizza now and us girls are going to have coffees! *Big wave to you from us here* You ahve a nice weekend too, Cap'n! Loves ya!! : D

Cheeky Girl first and foremost , how ya doin ? Thanks for the Info here. I have been on hubpages awhile now but I will be the first to confess I am completely illiterate on adsense and pageviews and promotion. I only bought my first computer in 2006 and I was scared to turn it on for fear of breaking it ! Now I have to drag myself away from this thing. Damn job ! So any help is appreciated. Have a good day my friend.

Hey, Tony! Thank you, moi friend! I am well! Hope you are doing okay. Well, thanks for checking this hub out! Can I confess that you are just the punter I am hoping will check this hub out. 2006. Well your hubs are so good, you'd never have guessed it! Aw, ya won't break it! All it can do is crash anyhoo! That's just the operating system falling outa bed first thing in the morning. PC's do that! LOL! A computer in the job is a sure way of having to learn it no matter what! Anyway, videos are an easy way to learn stuff! My girlfriend has hundreds of those things! Heh! I am glad to be of any help with the web or hub or net stuff! Have a nice relaxing weekend, Tony! : ) X

Darlene Sabella profile image

Darlene Sabella 6 years ago from Hello, my name is Toast and Jam, I live in the forest with my dog named Sam ...

Hello again, I want to know how to wrap around a part of a subject while writing on hub, when we can only use a few formats that we must follow. Also, should I let google pick my ads? Or, should I continue to chose. Awesome hub my dearest friend. I love your hubs, very professional...thank so much, thumbs up useful

Cheeky Girl profile image

Cheeky Girl 6 years ago from UK and Nerujenia Author

Hy Darlene: wrapping around a subject, h'mm - well I presume you mean wrapping text around a subject like a picture or art? Is that what you mean, Darlene? That's easy. If you write a paragraph of text and then put a picture in a picture capsule below it, and the picture is not at full size but at half size or quarter size (you'll see those options when loading a picture into a picture capsule, you can use the capsules green "move" arrows to move the photo or picture up beside the paragraph of text. If there is enough text, the text will wrap around the subject easily. There might be an advert there above or below the art, so that might affect the flow of text a bit.

It's possible to put text alongside existing text and have two paragraphs alongside, and better again, you can have the text on the outside in a coloured box of light blue or grey. I do that in some of my hubs.

Yes, let Google pick the ads, they are best left to their own devices. Yieldbuild does most of this automatically. We don't have much choice over the size of our ads - we can use our options in the edit part of the hub making process to turn off ads - making a hub non commercial. Every now and then I notice ads that might not suit the hub appearing sometimes. I think the ads take their cue from what tags or metatags get put on the page. The hub title and text of the hub can determine how ads appear and what subject they advertise. Dedicating no more than a paragraph at a time to a text capsule means you will see google text ads apearing between paragraphs. Again, Yieldbuild does that for us. There are some hubbers who might be able to insert their own ads on their hub pages, but they have to have special accounts with Google or Amazon to do that. Its easier with Amazon, I think. Anyway, I hope some of this helps, Darlene! Glad you like the hubs! Cheers! : )

Hi Cheeky Girl,

Wow...I've been on the net since it came out--there are older people than me who no very little about it--and we're talking about Google Adsense! In some ways it's greek-too much to think about-but I do get what you're getting at. I will watch your vids here later as I'm at the library now!

Nicely done thou :)

Hy schoolgirlforreal: you sound like you have been on the net a while. The adsense thing is only greek until we learn more about how it works, how to register for it and then how to get it working on our hubs, blogs and web pages. I hope the videos help to explain how it works. Thanks for the kind comments! Cheers!

I just wanted to say that I thought your Hub was excellently compiled - and god I know how much work goes into writing and researching and putting the right videos in, etc. I bookmarked this Hub the other day because I wanted to come back and read it again, and watch more of the videos. Great work and thank you.

Hy Ericasky: oh, don't worry. It is easy to learn. There are plenty of writers in Hub Pages already writing great articles on Adsense. Check out TattoGuy and others like him. Making a bit of money income is not a bad thing on the Internet. Practically everyone is doing it with their Blogs or websites or whatever they are doing on the net. And it's a free and easy way to generate some income in the end, it just takes time, that's all. I hope it helps. Cheers!

Great idea to make a Hub of videos about a topic. There is some good advice here. I particularly like the explanation that times have changed.

Our website is on DMOZ! I hadn't realised that is considered difficult, so very cheering news.

Thanks for an interesting and unusual hub.

Hello 2patricias: videos make sense as the viewer just sits like in a class room and watches and listens, and hey even take note or two if one likes. Yes, the Hub reflects some changes happening now. It pays to keep abreast of change on the web. You guys have a great website! Well done! Cheers!

Cheeky Girl 6 years ago from UK and Nerujenia Author

Hello sweetie: sounds like your adsense is not making a whole lot for you. I wonder do you have any amazon ads on your hubs,and are they earning anything? I don't have any interest in ebay or Kontera, as Kontera just makes some of my hubs seem confusing as Kontera links something of a best-match lottery system. Have you ever thought of having a website or blog? Just wondering if you might get more traffic that way, thus earn more perhaps.

Thanks Cheeky Girl, learned a whole lot! Watching the videos is excellent, it is like having a conversation with someone, no interruptions, the content is informative. I am really new, only found out about Hub Pages yesterday, have an account but not started writing a Hub page yet. And, always wondered about making money online with Google, heard so much about it....

Cheeky Girl profile image

Cheeky Girl 6 years ago from UK and Nerujenia Author

Hello Jashryn: welcome to Hub Pages! I am grateful for the positive feedback here. Seems everyone is looking for good information about Google and how to earn a few bucks (or more) from The Big "G"! It can be done. Some people here including me are earning some dosh from it and from Amazon (or even a few others like Clickbank, but that's another story and another hub) - so you are doing the right thing. It does take time to get to the point where the cash grows to the $100 minimum before they send the first check, but we all have to start somewhere. The better the hubs - the sooner the cash rolls in. Best of luck with your hubs! I look forward to reading your articles.

Thanks Cheeky Girl, by the way I have watched all the videos on your website and Hub Pages. You are an example of smeone who doesn't just talk about it, but does it. I can relate to what you are saying, I got fed up with relying on others and began teaching myself HTML, built a personal website with a template. But I am not as far along as you are, but I am going to get there. Also following in the footsteps of the authors of Hub Pages in the how-to-do-it section. Learn from the experts, from ones who are doing it!

Cheeky Girl profile image

Cheeky Girl 6 years ago from UK and Nerujenia Author

Hy Jashryn: Aw, that is sweet of you to say that! Well, my website is up a while, and it's constantly being added to. It will look different at the end of this week from what it looks like now, I assure you. I hope you enjoy the browsing. And Thank you for checking the hubs here. Weebly is free and has - well, you can see my site, so you know what has anyway. is pretty good too. Like you, I have taught myself or learned from others. And I have done a course or two on web development. You are doing it the right way, learning by doing. It's better than any other way I know. Hub Pages is a great place to learn many great things about building a web business, or web content whether for business or pleasure. I wish you luck in your website building endeavors. And I'll check them out when they are up and running. Cheers!

How do you know that your earnings are coming from Hubs. How does google track it without a channel? All Hubs has is our publisher ID from google. I have had hubs published for 2 years and see no stats anywhere that indicate if I am getting traffic from hubs.

Well THANK YOU - ThAnK YoU - THanK yoU - thANK yOU- I was going to keep on trying to tell you how helpful you have been.You have found a way of making new ways to explain the same thing I just didn't understand.I am the first to say I didn't know how google adsense works or what to do until today.I just started really using the computer this past year.So if you can think back to when you first started just putting writings on the computer was challange enough.Then reading other hubbers articles.Then posting comments.I really didn't know you couldn't get any money at all with Google until you have your own website.I thought having hubs on Hub Pages was enough.I thought they could send your checks to your e-mail accounts.I have only got about 7,000 visitors since I started and now I have a lot of work to do and I am learning so much every day from all the great hubbers on the Hub Pages. My head feels like it is going to explode.I have turned to my friends in WORK AND FAMILY they all say its just another internet scam!!!!I can not wait to prove them wrong with real checks.That cash at any bank.I still need a lot of help and support but at least I am heading in the right direction.Just wanted to say S K N A H T another create way.I know I can do this.It is hard when you get little support.There are to many non believers.Have a great day and may all your dreams be thousands of times the size of mine!

Cheeky Girl 6 years ago from UK and Nerujenia Author

Hello DREAM ON: I am glad you found the hub helpful. The videos do the job wonderfully. I am planning some more hubs like this! I mention my Blogger blog and my website Cheeky Girls Apartment in my profile. I am making money from adsense on both of them as well as Hubs. Just paste the adsense code into the site's html, both Google and Weebly make it easy to do. I even make money from Amazon too, just like here. They all work with adsense and amazon. Why aren't all hubbers doig this. You even get the back links straight to your hubs of choice, more traffic.

I would recommend to set up a free PayPal account, if you get ambitious enough to want to expand your horizons. Never mind the non-believers. I believe people like TattoGuy and Shailini, they are pros at this. Sabreblade has lots of free Blogger blogs and she must be making lots of dosh. Amazon and adsense again. Anything on Blogger can be free and as related to your hub themes as you like, or pay the tener for the dot com name of your choice and get the pro version of blogger. I went pro on weebly.

They even let me privatise pages with password protections.

There is plenty of money out there, ignore the non-believers. Go get some of it, I did. May all your dreams come true for you, my friend. Cheers!

P.s. Amazon let you choose whether to be paid in cash or vouchers to spend on Amazon goodies. Got myself a nice Kindle with my first earnings. :)

Hy Momma Mia: I saw your musical, it was great! Heh! Kidding! Thanks for the comments, and I hope the hub here encourages you to reach for the stars. It can be done. Wish you well to, Mia! :)

Katrina, making money with Google Adsense is not only possible but many people are making an income here in Hub Pages too. It's a terrific way to supplement an income and see some other kind of rewards from our writing efforts. I am very glad you picked up some good info from my hub on making money.

Can I say I was really impressed by your hub on Canvass prints that you wrote? I thought it was just terrific. I even went and checked out the website linked to it too. I highly recommend everyone goes and reads it, because you did an excellent job on this, and anyone looking to add some amazing art to their home or office should seriously consider it. You have some amazing hubs and a rich selection and I am checking out more of them too. Katrina, thank you for the many comments you have left me today. You made this Cheeky Girl very happy today! :) I hope you have a great day, and enjoy this coming Holiday too. Cheers! :D

Hello DREAM ON, thanks for checking out the hub again. You really are taking this serious! But then making money from google adsense is a doddle once you got the basics. Even just a few minutes a day is a help. I get emails on all the new Google related affiliates that have done advertising deals with Google. There are hundreds of them now. Most of them will use the adsense system as it streamlines everything including mainly the payments. I may do a hub on this in the near future. Enjoy 2011 and I hope you do terrific! Happy New Year! :D

Do you work another job or is this your main income?Learning what to do is like a full time job.I have work and like so many others when you have only a couple of hours a day to yourself you have to make the right choices.Sometimes you just want to write and tell the world what's on your mind.If I understand it correctly you can only make money if someone clicks on the ads.Not just from viewing your hubs.So say if you had 5,000 visitors a day but no one clicked on your ads then you would not make any money.Thanks for helping me once again.2011 can be fun cand so exciting for everyone!!!

Cheeky Girl 6 years ago from UK and Nerujenia Author

Hy DREAM ON. Gosh yes I have a job in Finance, while this is a web content thing here I do but spread over several blogs and a hefty website. I can only spare so much time on this, if I had more time, I'd have more hubs and thus more income. I read a lot, and get great tips from people I know in social networks and on hub pages.

I use twitter, myspace and Facebook to promote my hubs, and I am trying to finish writing a book too. I am a busy woman. Heh!

There is this strange rule I read somewhere that said people will click on about 10% of your ads. So if you have 100 hubs they will click ads on roughly 10 of the hubs, provided they are relevant and interesting. No one said you have to just have some hubs and nothing else that can bring in income too.

A blog I write gets me income on Adsense and Amazon, as do my hubs here. lets you have adsense and amazon ads there too, just like hub pages. I also got all them on my website, which today got over 160 views in one afternoon, after I gave it a makeover. (Might be some free music I have on it that caused the spike.) I get approx 2000 views a week here, I plan to double that then double it again. I have over 100,000 views here now. More than 70% of my traffic comes from outside Hub Pages. Backlinks get me that traffic.

If you are getting 5000 visitors a day, you must be getting clicks. Using twitter and facebook to promote your hubs, that will get you more visitors again. They are free to have and use, and this year I expect the number of people following me in twitter will surpass the 640 followers in hub pages. "Funnel" all your traffic into your hubs, and watch the money come in slowly but surely. It takes time, but it's well worth it. If you ever want to know about setting up a free website or blog, let me know. Cheers! have a great day!

I found this hub to be very helpful. I have been here two weeks so far and it is a little overwhelming. Anxious about posting my first hub and not really knowing how to use all things I have right here at my fingertips but this really helped me.

Hey K Nicole Smith! Welcome to Hub Pages! Great to have new Hubbers join the great Community here. Yes, making sense of Google Adsense and making money from it can be a shock at first as there is a lot to it. The videos here in my hub explain most of how it works, so just follow the videos and you will be well on the way. I hop you earn good income from your hubs. It will take time and will be slow at first, but over time it will increase.

If you can go beyond just writing hubs, and explore getting new readers into Hub Pages and thus viewing your hubs thanks to backlinking - then all the better. Twitter and Facebook can be very useful, and all hubbers who grow their readership use these.

I hope you find writing on Hub Pages productive. There are plenty of hubs that will help you to do this. Cheers!
