Once you have a Google Adsense account you can add the ads to any other Blogs you create without having to go through the application process again. Or if you already write articles on a writing site and have an account then you only have to use the Adsense Gadget on your Blog. There is no need to apply again to display your ads. Google will already have your account number on file and will link to your account automatically.
If you have a special interest that you enjoy and can write short blogs about it then you will be on you way to earning money from writing blog posts online. And believe me once you connect with other readers who also enjoy your interest then you will have created an interesting and profitable blog.
Making Money Online With Google
Targeted Google adverts are designed to appear on your blog in a way that they will only be connected to the subject you write about. This way the blog looks good and you have a better chance of readers clicking on the adverts. When you add the Adsense Gadget it will automatically pick the most relevant ads for the subjects you are writing about.
You earn money when the reader clicks on the advert. It does not matter whether the reader actually buys or joins what they are advertising. The reason you are paid for clicks is that you brought a potential customer to the company that had the ad on your page.
My First Blog
This first blog is about earning money by writing online. I use it to add unique links to my articles here on HubPages. I always write a short blog post about the article but in different words that the article itself. This is easily done by imagining you are telling your readers about your article, what is in it and how it will help them make money writing online by using the particular tips and advice. You can look at the layout of my blog here and become a follower if you wish too.
This blog is my newest one. It started off as a platform to sell clothes for dogs which is an up and coming industry. I have mostly Amazon adverts on this one and only one Google advert I think. My main income comes from selling all things to do with dogs from Amazon.
I keep seeing these wonderful stories on the internet about dogs and puppies so changed the title of the blog to include those as well. This blog was only created recently so is still a work in progress.
