Google Adsense allows webmasters to dynamically serve content relevant advertisements on web pages. If the visitor clicks one of the Adsense ads served to the website, the website owner is credited for the referral. Google’s Adsense program essentially allows approved websites to dynamically serve Google’s pay-per-click Adword results.

The website maintenance related to Adsense is very easy and requires very little effort. Webmasters need only to insert a Google generated javascript into the webpage or website template. Google’s spider parses the adserving website and serves ads that relate to the website’s content. Google uses a combination of keyword matching and context analysis to determine what ads should be served. The javascript calls the ad from Google and will ensure that ads are served each time a visitor goes to the webpage.

Early on Google implemented a filtering system that allowed webmasters to prevent a specific domain’s ads from being served on any websites in their account. Ad blocking meant that webmasters could prevent their competitors ads from being dynamically served on their websites.

Google provides a wide variety of ad formats, that webmasters can choose from. Webmasters can select from a handful of preformatted text boxes. The ad boxes can be modified by webmasters to resemble the website’s color scheme.

Examples of how different the various text boxes and color schemes appear on similarly themed sites can be viewed at:

Ads can be geotargeted based on the visitors location. Advertisements containing content in English, French, German, Italian, Dutch, Portuguese, Japanese, or Spanish are all available.

Channels Googles recently introduced channels as a way to enhance Adsense reporting. When a channel is selected Google modifies the javascript to include additional tracking. The additional tracking information allows webmasters to track a variety of metrics across their sites. Channels can be used to measure performance on various domains, differences in revenue with various ad sizes, or placement. By assigning each group of pages to a specific channel and comparing results in custom channel reports webmasters can work at increasing their AdSense revenue.

Optimizing Google determines the content of the ads that are shown, webmasters serious about earning revenue from Google Adsense can use the following guidelines to optomize their website and ensure that targeted relevant ads are served. If Google’s spider has not crawled the site and determined the nature of the content pulic service ads may be served. Public service adds will not accrue any adsense revenue if clicked. As a result Google allows webmasters to designate alternate ads. Alternate ads allow webmasters to utilize the ad space in the event that Google is unable to serve targeted ads to the web page. By specifying an alternate image, HTML page, or ad server can make sure that the advertising space is always being used effectively.

1.) Web page content on pages that ads are served should be static not dynamic.

2.) Ensure that the robot.txt does not prevent the web page from being spidered. Robots.txt file’s will need to be removed or the following text will need to bedded to allow Google’s content bot to crawl the site: User-agent: Mediapartners-Google

3.) If the website contains frames, select the framed page’ checkbox when generating the ad layout code for that website.

4.) The body of the page and title of the page should contain contextual words that indicate a common theme on the web page.

Revenue Earned Although Google doesn’t disclose the exact revenue share or percentage that webmasters will earn, webmasters will receive a portion of the amount paid for clicks on Google ads on websites.

AdSense Conclusion: Overall, adwords can provide great supplemental income to webmasters with content sites. Implementing and maintaing Google Adsense program on a content site requires very little effort and can often bring a steady stream of additional revenue for webmasters.

    In my opinion, Adsense is only successful with very high traffic websites. Even if your are getting a few thousand visits per month, you probably won’t make a lot of money. Affiliate programs tend to work better for low traffic sites as the profit margin is much higher.

    • Guest

      even on a low traffic site you’ll make money if the content is extremely relevant to the ads.

  • http://www.travelindia-guide.com Indian

    Yes, adsense can work for you if you really put some effort in deciding on your ad placements. Earlier I was getting $2 per month, but after some effort I was able to make $2 per day. Not much, but still good enough to keep the site going.
