Can You Earn Money Through Google Adsense?
Every single day I receive emails asking me if I earn money through Google's AdSense program. It seems everyone wants to know if they can earn money as well. I feel that this topic has been covered a good bit, but thought I would add my two cents as well in hopes that my followers who are wondering if it works might realize that YES it works.
Earning money through Google's AdSense program can be slow to start with and I think this is why people get discouraged and wonder if they will ever reach payout (which is $100 by the way). It might seem like forever away, but if you stick with writing and using Google's program, then you will eventually reach payout.
The more hubs you write, the more your information is out there on the internet. Quantity in hubs is directly related to quantity in ad money. Quantity is not the only thing that matters though. Quality is even more important. Write about interesting things, use correct grammar, write complete sentences and write correctly. Good writing will attract more people. The more people view your hubs, the more money you will receive through AdSense.
The title is very important. When writing your title think about what people will be searching for to find your hub. Keywords are also important. I am not an expert in keyword optimization by any means (truly I don't understand it much), but whatever topic you are writing on think about the keywords that relate to that topic. For instance if you are writing about dogs, use the word dog rather than your dog's name in your post. People will not be searching for your dog's name, but if they need information on dogs they will use the word dog. Is your post breed specific? Use the name of the breed. The better the title and keywords are, the quicker Google will find your hub and hopefully rank it high. The higher the rank, the more hits you will get.
I have said it before, but I will say it again. The more people view your hubs, the more AdSense money you will get. Get your hubs out there for the world to see. Link to them whenever you can, wherever you can. You need to realize that it takes time. I received my first payout NINE months after starting to write for HubPages. But I received my next payout just four months later and another one two months after that. In a little over a year I was receiving a payout from Google AdSense every single month and still do today. Yes it can be done, but there is no get rich quick scheme here. Work hard, write a lot, and you will see the rewards - eventually.
