Chances are, you already know about google AdSense program. Those who still do not know it but want to get started in online money making, should immediately get to know about it in detail. Because it is highly recommended for beginners for its simplicity of the money making model. It’s an advertising network maintained by Google where website owners can participate and display advertisements in their websites. Website or blog owners get paid whenever the website or blog visitors click on the ads which are displayed in the blog/website. That’s how the program works.
It’s not necessary that a beginner in online marketing or one seeking genuine money making opportunity must be working with Google AdSense because there are literally countless ways, countless networks to work with. But AdSense has earned a name in the pay per click marketplace in the publisher’s mind. Recently, AdSense income has dropped for many people but, still the payout is significant. And as compared to other contextual advertising networks like Chitika, Adbrite, Adhitz, Infolinks etc, AdSense is way better so far the earnings are concerned.
How to get into the AdSense program?
So far getting the full approval is concerned, it’s real tough to get at least for a beginner with no prior knowledge of creating a professional website/blog. But hosted account through YouTube could easily be achieved within a short span of time. The video to be uploaded should be of quality and worth giving it a watch. After uploading of a good quality video, go to monetize the video and apply for AdSense. You will have to fill up some of your details like Address and payee name etc. It’s likely that you would get approval within 1 hour.
What has recently changed about the approval procedure?
Earlier an AdSense publisher having a hosted account through YouTube could display the ads to any of the Google hosted platforms including Youtube. Hosted platforms are Blogspot blogs, Google sites etc. But lot of new publishers who got the approval through YouTube had abused the system by displaying ads in pretty low quality blogger blogs which Google didn’t take easily. And now the new rule is, if you get approval through YouTube, you are only eligible to show your Ads in YouTube. That’s it.
How to get the full AdSense approval?
Full approval lets you display ads anywhere you like. Any custom domain including any free platforms and google hosted sites. But getting fully approved takes a little more of your effort. You are to apply through a custom domain website or blog. Good content, Legal pages should be there before applying. In India, a blog or website has to be at least 6 months old to apply for it. But it has been seen that even with=in 3-4 months many people have been able to get approval just because they created a attractive site.
