Making Money With Google...The Free-Way To Everything Google
The best place to start is with your gmail accounts, and google adsense account. Gmail, and google voice are great. From the adsense account you make your ads, and place them everywhere you are. Usually 3 per page. Three different types. Text/Image, and Text ads can be placed strategically all over a page. Sidebars are a good place for skyscraper ads, and text ads up top, or bottom of page.
Also be careful not to violate google adsense terms. They do not look favorably on 3rd party software, and sites that increase traffic. They will terminate/freeze/suspend your account. You also cannot add other 3rd party code on the same pages/sites your adsense is placed. Be sure to read all the terms with google. You cannot click on your own ads anywhere. They track IP's so don't do that. It's a fast way to get suspended. You also cannot ask people to click on your ads. Google picks up patterns of behavior.
You can make some money though, after you build things right, and gain rank through time, and effort. You have to be willing to be patient, and consistent with as much creation, and placement as you can fit into your schedule. Until it gains rank, (whether hubpages or website/blog/etc) it's not going to make very much. Google will only pay at the threshold of $100.00.
It's pretty simple once you are used to it, and you formulate your routine, and schedule. I wanted to add this to avoid any confusion: I choose hubpages, and my own sites, blogs, and more because I know it's safe, professional, and productive to be here. I have not had any problems or issues setting it up this way. It went very smooth, and is earning money. I won't say it was easy, but once built, you're done. Then you begin to tell people about what you built. Create interest, and you will be able to know what works, and what doesn't. You can also implement analytics with google, to track the productivity.
I hope this information helps, and guides you safely. The hard work you put into it, will pay off in the end. I also use amazon, but my adsense makes more than that. I did sell a lot on amazon, but I made more on adsense. The adsense for content is my highest earning section of adsense. The bottom line is you need a lot of clicks to earn, and you have to cause this to happen without breaking the rules.
I can tell you from experience, google is the best place to build everything. It's stable, secure, safe, and of course king of the internet. You can literally do anything on google. Including architecture, drawing, art, documents, presentations, business plans, and so much more. I find it so amazing, and so much better than ALL the programs I have used over the years. It does everything word, and all microsoft programs does, but better, and it never freezes, and it saves everything as you are creating it.
Many sites allow you to build free web sites, and host them for free too. That's where you would start with your external sites from hubpages. The idea is to have both, or all working with your google account. It can be integrated together by link placement, and page placement. I advertise my hubs on my sites, and visa versa. They all work together. I manage over 88 gmail/emails for advertising in ads. They too all go to one main place, in my gmail/email. All emails are forwarded to my main gmail/email. All my business calls go to my invoice inbox, (google/voice). All of my documents are in my gmail/email main address. I also have a private Intranet Database (also created and built on google) for all my associates to work from, and grab documents they need. Anyone can call me from my web sites, with my google/voice account. You add the code for the number, once you set it up. I have tried a lot of what's out there, and found google to be the best of the best. Plus most of it is free. I have not found the need to pay for anything yet.
You never stop building sites. You just keep going. You secure as many free domain names as you can, you should also have at least one real purchased domain name, from (for example) godaddy. They are the best as far as I have experienced. You will need a real domain address for your account to be accepted into google. From there you can add as many websites as you can build. You only need the main domain name to set up the account. Making sure you renew it every year, to insure your google account remains active.
Blogs, forums, web sites, ads on free sites, and emails to friends and associates. All emails need permission to be sent to your friends, etc. You should ask people first, then proceed to send. Never send emails from ads you see on free advertising sites. It is considered spam. In your gmail account, you should utilize your "report spam" button, any time you receive spam. This way it will be logged in gmail, and you won't be bothered by them again. Also you want to use the "report phishing" selection, (top right arrow to reply/forward).
Phishing would be an email that has a link in it, which is disguised as something else. Raise your mouse over it, and view the actual URL, it goes to at the bottom on your browser. DO NOT CLICK it, this is how they hack you, give you a virus/worm, steal from you, or grab your private info off your computer. Never click on them, click the report phishing selection, and report it immediately. Gmail/google records everything, it will help you, and everyone by doing this.
The ultimate goal is to have many sites working for you. Hubpages, web sites, blogs, forums, free ads, and emails all bring traffic, and then they tell their friends and so on. It has to be interesting, helpful, desirable, and fresh with content. Adding things to your sites, like news, weather, write ups, and stories with specific keywords is beneficial to increase traffic, by way of keyword search on google. Google will bring them right to you, if you do everything right. You are building your web, within the web, and once rooted, you will gain rank through the google crawls, indexing, algorithms, among other things. Once you have many sites built, you can then verify them, with Meta Tags, and start using analytics on google.
You pick some main names of what you do, or what your product is. You focus on the nucleus of sites you build. Then you expand from there, to build more sites, and add your google adsense variety of ads. Typically 3 types of ads should appear on each page. Text/Image ads, Thin lined Text ads, and and 4-5 tier Text ads. The text/image ads are great, colorful, and animated. They work well, the text/link ads are placed in small spaces like side bars, at the top or bottom of sites, and around other content. Getting it to look right is the key. You have to pick/design templates being mindful of where you will be placing your ads. Many of the free hosting sites, have their own adsense that will also appear with yours. Unless you go premium, that's the way it works.
Most people think google is complicated, it's actually not. I think that it's incredible vastness, overwhelms people into thinking it's complicated. Once you are working within google, I can assure it is the easiest, most logical, sensible method of building an empire. From mail, documents, web sites, blogs, forums, phone numbers, presentations, templates, power point, and so much more...There is nothing you can't do with google. I have a vast array of sites, and more all integrated together on google.
You can literally build an entire business on google. Whether it's a retail store, law firm, web business, and more, you can do all of it on google, and have everything in one place. It's totally automated, with email notifications, and spreadsheets, forms, and more. It's way too vast to list all of it here. You have to dive in and experience it to get the full picture.
I use no outside, 3rd party programs, only google...for everything I have to do. All of my reps, and associates are also on gmail/google. Each one has a free google voice number, they use for ads being placed. You can forward the calls to as many numbers as you like, it is so incredible, I can't stop talking about it. Never loose another business number/contact again! Awesome is an understatement.
All my hubs are written in google docs, then copied and pasted into the hubs, as I build them. It helps to speed up the birth of the hub, and additional capsules being added. The quicker you get things published, (through time) the more you will build, and the more you will make. You are trying to achieve vastness as well as a stable presence on the web. Your own web, within the web is what will bring you traffic. Rich, fresh, interesting content, and visuals are the key. Stale content is something you will learn as you go, through using analytics, it will show you what is working, and what is not. Affording you the insight, and opportunity to correct it, change it, and make it better. Learn as you go, it's really the best way to imprint it on your brain.
Most people think you have to pay for all of this. The fact is, you don't. Although I did buy many domain names, I didn't have to. I really only needed one to be able to have my adsense account, and then teaming up with hubpages is/was an enhancement to my goals. Hubpages is very interactive, supportive, protective, and professional with it's writers. You can actually feel safe at hubpages, and know you have a group of people around you that are genuine. Although nothing is perfect, they are my top choice to be with, and to be connected to. As mentioned earlier, everything connects to everything, all in one place. It makes it easy for me to monitor traffic, hits, clicks, impressions, and more.
You also want to track your stats, which you can place code from the host themselves, or from google, at the bottom of your pages. That way you have additional stat counters monitoring everything. I actually use many, because I like to compare them to each other. This way I can be sure they are accurate. I have found faulty stat counters, so don't use just any pick. Pick ones that are ad free, or free and reciprocal. Meaning they reciprocate back to you.
Using google automated forms, is by far the most favorite with me. I have never loved a program more than this. The forms are created by me, adding appropriate questions to the form, in which the customer clicks on choices, then enters their contact information. All of the data entered goes right to a spreadsheet automatically. The spreadsheet is then shared with the specific person in charge of that area. They check the sheets daily for new people to help. I cannot say enough good things about these options I have personally utilized. I'm trained on all the other programs out there, and I like this one the best. It really is awesome, and I love the automation that it has. It tells me, instead of me having to check in so many areas. No matter where I place the forms, all the data goes to the spreadsheet instantly.
I was never a secretary, it wasn't my main expertise. The reason I mention that is because even without those skills, I was able to do this. What I have built, is so vast, I could never possibly manage it without utilizing google. Google gave me every tool I needed, for free. Once you start making money, you can always add more things, or even pay services. To get started though, you can do all of it for free, (with one domain name, which is under $12).
As I find new and exciting things on google, I will add them to the hub for everyone to benefit from. See links to many created items on google below. Feel free to ask questions, as I could not possibly list everything in the hub. I will add links to the free sites who offer hosting for free too. Meanwhile get busy creating hubs, on hubpages, which will help you get your feet wet, and grow some roots on the web. The community will be able to help you, and you can ask all kinds of questions in the forums, and blogs, everyone here is really awesome, and helpful. The sharing of knowledge, and quality of content shines brighter than other sites.
Please ask a question, in case I left out any details in a particular area. It's not easy to write everything I have learned about google. I hope what I have detailed helps those who wish to build, make money, understand google, and more. It's also fun, while learning, and building. Begin with a good attitude, and tell yourself it takes a little time to build an empire. From there proceed with a smile, and be methodical about it. Smile, and build, and never stop, until the money you make is where you want it to be. Expand when you can, and never lose hope. All seeds have to grow roots, before they become big an strong. The same applies to the web as well. It's a beautiful garden, that requires constant love, attention, and maintenance.
