Read these steps:

1. Open microsoft word and write an article on any topic you are interested in, write around 300 words article or more. Now save this file in your computer. Now open up (Remember don't be confused with blogger and blogspot as both are same.) Now hit the button create a blog, when you will hit that button you will be taken to a page saying "Create a Google Account"

2. If you do not have a google account just create one and if you have an old one for your orkut, gmail, google groups, google base, picasa, just sign in with the same username and password. After signing in, a window will open up for creating your first blog at blogger. Choose one domain name like After choosing domain name and pressing enter, a window will open up for creating your first blog post. Now open up your first article you have written on microsoft word copy and paste that article in the required text field. Create a google title and add some keywords in the labels section of your blog post. Remember, the keywords and title should be in context with your text that means, the words taken should not be from outside and should be from inside the text or otherwise it will become irrelevant for the search engines to index your blog. Good title and labels bring up unique visitors and these new visitors coming every time will read your blog and may be they click on the ads making you money. Now the next step comes how to display ads on blogger?

3. You don't have to know any programming languages or any html, javascript thing for displaying ads on blogger. Just write some more 5 or 6 articles relating to the same topic like the one you started with. After creating a good amount of posts on your blog, it is time sign up for google adsense. Now click and a Google Adsense Page will open up directly and then apply for Adsense. Submit all info about yourself. Most important point to remember, double check the payee name on which you want to recieve your check. Now adsense will review your application and will send an e-mail to you when they accept you to Adsense might be in 3 business days.

4. After they accept your blog, just scroll down to the end of blog post and click the button saying "DISPLAY GOOGLE ADSENSE ADS". A page will load up and select the options in which form you want to display these ads . Previously people had to place their ads manually in their blogger blogs but thanks to google as now it is done automatically. After you are able to see that ads are displayed on your blog, then when someone will click on your Ads you will be paid.

P.S.: Please note that if you will use the same username and password for all your google products like google base, blogger, picasa, gmail, orkut, etc., you will really benefit from that, as it will save your precious time of again logging in and out and also you will be able to manage all your google products via one account.

      you dont make any money unless someone clicks your adsense links.. The average computer user or visitor to a website knows not to click those links.

      So using adsense is not a good way to make money at all.. sorry to inform.. maybe back in the day it was good but horrible now. If you just enjoy writing blogs then this is a great place to be but you will not make any money now not unless you are driving 100k worth of people to your site daily and thats just to make about $100.00 bucks a month

      Yes, I agee with you. Now I have been blogging for last 4 years and earning money online and before that, I was also hunting for online money making sites without any good results and not even earned a penny and rather spent a lot of money via my credit cards. It was in 2007 when I actually started blogging, writing content at Squidoo for 1 month and then hubpages for 3 and a half years now and I am making good money.

      Hi friends,

      This was my first hub when I joined hubpages two years back but today I got some time so I have re-edited it and published it again adding up my knowledge that I gained in these two years at hubpages.

      Dear bangawking000, you have been at hubpages for 3 weeks and published 30 hubs but earned very less because it takes time and who says that you gonna earn millions of dollars doing that. It takes time to build up your network and earn money. The most important thing is quality. Do you think you write hubs which are according to the content writing standards. If no, then how you can expect good readers on your site and at the end better earnings. First step is to write original high quality content, then promote them via the SHARE IT button. When you will have good amount of visitors visiting your hubs, your earnings will definitely improve. Blogger and blogspot are both the same sites, just the name is different. Now you say does adsense earn better on blogger. I say yes but those people earn good income from these free sites who put in hard work, write good quality content, and follow the steps.

      If you are earning money from affiliate commissions like clickbank, you can write useful hubs or how to hubs for people and your earnings from adsense will improve. Just an idea.

      dear friend, there are many sites that claim to provide online jobs to earn high income i.e. above Rs. 50,000 but it costs Rs. 1200 and above as their registration fee but i think all it's fishing only.I have also spent a couple of years discovering what's true.Now i came to conclusion that what's better that all this we can get free because this is online process what's the security of our money given to them as registration fee.So why not we join that which is free.try this site this really helps you

      Thanks for this useful information. I applied for adsense after creating my first hub and got my account approved within 3-4 days, but I have created around 5 to 6 hubs and the page impressions are showing up in my account but where are the clicks.  Up until now, I have not even earned a single penny. When I start making money with google adsense. What is SEO , linking, social bookmarking as asked by qatarvisitor in this hub. How I can do that. Should I ask these questions in the forum?  Please tell me everything about it.

      Google Adsense is great extra cash and I recommend adding it to every blog and website a person creates.

      Think you'll find it a bit harder than that to make money blogging! What about the seo involved, the linking, the social networking... :)
