- Google Adsense

What is Google Adsense ?
Google Adsense is Google’s publisher network which provides earning opportunity to the website owners , technically publishers. In order to monetise your website with Google Adsense, you need quality contents in your website. For that, you need to write various blog posts. I recommend beginners to start writing atleast 20 blog posts to 50 blog posts in order to get approval from Google Adsense. Google distributes 32% of its earnings from Google Adwords to its publishers like you. The other 68% will be kept by Google itself.
Google Adsense is one of the largest publisher networks available now. Where beginners prefer Google Adsense; the experts prefer mediatdotnet.
There could be some issues you face while you submit your website for review to the Google Adsense. They are low value content, thin content and plagarised content.
Low Value Content means your blog posts need more highly qualified contents to be posted straight away. Thin content also refers to the low value content. The standard of your blog posts don’t meet the standards required by Google.
The plagiarised content means you have spinned and written a copied content from other sources. There are some alternatives available for Google Adsense to earn higher. One of them is mediadotnet. But, compaaring to Adsense, mediadotnet requires higher traffic from your website. Shoutmeloud is one of the highest earning blogs in India from Google Adsense as well as Mediadotnet.
Other networks like infolinks, bidvertiser are notable ones. To earn more from Google Adsense, here are some ways.
Start a niche: You are expert by default in your niche. Niche is nothing but your expertise area. For example, let’s take an example: Suresh is a content expert and so he starts a website by selecting “earn money online and job ” niche. The other x factor is the traffic where you get from. Like from Tier 1 countries , Tier 2 countries, or Tier 3 countries.
Tier 1 countries provide better result and earning outcome. And another one is marketing your website online. I suggest you to use organic search results in order to gain momentum.
