Post Links On Google And Get Paid

Updated on February 7, 2011

Can I post links for Google and earn money?

Let's get to some facts before we go any further:

Google does not employ people to "post links" for them.

Now that is made perfectly clear, lets discuss how to post links on Google and get paid by them. Do you see the adverts on this page? I earn money whenever someone clicks on them. So by creating this page and getting visitors to it I earn cash. You will be pleased to know that it costs nothing to create this page. Hubpages offer a really easy to use web page builder, it's so easy that if you can write an email you can create a page here. They do not charge a fee but instead they split the profits with you. They create the software so you can concentrate on the content. You can add Youtube videos, photos, text etc. If the content you create is good then it should show up in search engines (like this page does) and that means you get visitors.

Probably worth repeating one thing again - Hubpages is free.

Avoid the "post links" scam

A few years ago someone had a simple idea, he created a kit which gave some really basic advice on how to create a web page (like the one you are reading now) and also how to put adverts in it, he then marketed it as a "work for Google" or "Google business kit".

The kit itself was worthless, but it sold like crazy, with so many people desperate to earn an extra income during the recession it's not too difficult to understand why. The scam got worse when the kit was sold for $2.99 but hidden in the small print was a statement that $100 per month would be deducted from the bank account/credit card. These contracts were difficult to get out of and the scammers often ignored cancellation requests.

You may see these types of scams as you visit pages on the web. The scammers often create crazy adverts making stupid claims about earning money through Google. It's best to avoid anything that sounds to good to be true.

Here is as an honest list of how you can earn money from Google:

1) Create a website and promote it so you get lots of visitors who click on the ads you insert into it.

2) Create a blog and do the same as #1 above.

3) If you can't create a blog or site because you know nothing about websites, then you can create an account for free here at hub pages and put your content here.There are other sites that do the same thing but I have found Hubpages to be the best.

If you are looking to earn thousands by doing little or no work then forget it - those crazy claims you may have seen on the web are just lies trying to get you to part with your money.

To earn money on Hubpages you will need to create a lot of articles about popular and interesting topics. If that's not your thing then I don't think you will money here.

There are other sites which offer the same kind of set up.

Google doesn't offer work from home jobs but they do pay site owners or content creators who put Google ads on their web pages. The phrase "post links on Google" was coined by the scammer because it implies that you work for Google but you don't.
