What’s Google Adsense
I use Google Adsense. It is a really quick and simple way to host advertising on your website. If a visitor is interested in the banners proposition then a user clicks through and you make cash. Cash, cash and more cash. The trick? Write interesting and relevant content to your target audience, the more awesome content you write the more visitors, the more visitors to click through.
The bonus thing to understand is that the more focused “niche” your website is the better Google choose the right audience, to encourage people to click through!
So, you have a website? Awesome, then it is proper easy to add Adsense to your website. WordPress Plugin called “Easy Adsense” is your friend. Add the plugin and you are well on your way adding Google Adsense to your website.

Banners ads are not what they once were. What do I mean? Well back in the way everyone, and I mean EVERYONE were right to think banners were pointless and people did not click on these. Therefore, what is the point? Well those days are GONE. I work in the industry and the tech used these days in terms of targeting is immense. Meaning for you? The right ads, at the right time for your visitors = cash for you.
Plenty of in depth videos and guides on YouTube and Google. Google have even published a hell of a guide for first timers!
