Google Adsense: Learning About the Program and the Most Important Rule

How Does Google Adsense Program Work For Webmasters Wanting to Earn Income?

Advertisers pay Google when someone clicks on their ads which are placed on pages that contain text. For instance, if you write content about lawn mowers, you’ll likely see ads from lawn mower manufacturers and/or retailers on that page. When somebody clicks on those ads, the advertiser pays Google and Google pays you. Naturally, the advertiser is going for the person that clicked on the add will really purchase the lawn mower or whatever they’re proposing.

In fact, Google is very strict about the integrity of this process. You’re forbidden to click on your own ads. If you do, your Adsense account will be stopped and you might never get it back. You’re also banned from asking others to click on “your ads”. It makes sense. Why would advertisers wish to pay just so your friends and family could click on your ads when no one is actually interested in buying the lawn mower or subject of the ad.

The good news is that it’s not necessary to “cheat.” Google Adsense is so easy you’ll make more money just going by the rules. Have or write interesting content that will turn up in search engines and you’ve “pointed” the right people to read those ads. Just think, someone in Indiana purchases a lawn mower and you get a commission!

What Not to Tell Others About the Google Adsense Program – The Most Important Rule

Sympathy only goes so far. Not only is it against the Google Adsense Program Policies but if you trust on friends and family members to click on your ads rather than diligently working the program, you’re cheating yourself – and the Google Adsense Program.

The “help me out” wail may work when your kid is selling outrageously costly candles for the end of the year school party but it’s no place in the Google Adsense Program.

Besides, if you’re asking people to click on your ads, that means you’re not optimizing your web site for valid clicks as well as referrals. Use that same energy to polish your content and your web site. When family and friends ask what you’ve been up to, you may proudly show them your hard work. When they see how excited you’re, you’ll see your referral revenue go up.
