Adsense is Google's advertising program used by webmasters to display ads from Google's list of advertisers.These text-based ads are served in the members sites, who eventually earn a commission wnenever someone clicks on the advertisers' links.
Google Adsense uses cutting edge technology to place ads that are highly relevant to the content of a particular page. Google's engine scans through the content of the webpage to determine its topic, then it will serve ads that are relevant to the page's content. Using Google Adsense is relatively simple. First we build a website full of high quality unique content of your desired niche or topic, when the site is up and running, you can register in Google's adsense program. Once you are approved, you get a code which you then paste in your page, and the ads start appearing sometime after you upload the changes to your server.
No one knows how Google shares the revenue per click with their partners, but how much you earn per click depends on the topic and the product being advertised. Products with smaller profit margins for the advertiser will most likely give you a smaller pay per click than a product with a higher margin. Likewise, ads with higher conversion rates will give you a higher payouts than less effective ads, since they can afford to pay more per click, with a portion of that money going to you.
These are popular online business models today. No matter which model you choose, make sure you understand the basics. Don't buy courses or information not applicable to your business. Information overload will stop you before you even get started.
