How to Make Affiliate Money Without Making a Sale
AdSense allows you to serve text-based Google AdWords on your
web site or blog and receive a share of the pay-per-click payment.
What are Adwords?
Adwords are text only advertisements that Google sells to people
who want to advertise their website on the Google search results
page. Adwords appear at the top and right of a Google search results
Adwords ads are set up so they only appear when someone enters
certain keywords into the Google search. For example if you had
a website selling Gold Watches you would set up your Adword ad to
appear when someone entered 'Gold Watch' into the search box.
When a user clicks on one of these ads they are taken to the advertisers
website and the Google automatically receives a fee from the advertiser.
The cost to advertise depends on how competitive the keywords you
have chosen to advertise on. If you want to appear at the top of
the list to a very competitive keyword area the cost-per-click(CPC)
price may be over 10$.
Back to AdSense.
Adsense is where these Adword ads are put on your Website. Which
ads appear depends on what Google 'thinks' the webpage the ads are
being displayed is about.
Therefore if your a webpage is about gold watches ads will be displayed
for gold watches.
If it thinks the webpage is about cars it will display ads relating
To decide what your webpage is about Google will look at things
on the webpage like headings, the density of keywords and also places
importance of the file name of the page. So if you wanted the gold
watches ads to appear on your page you would call the page gold-watches.html.
When a visitor to your site clicks on one of your ads you will
get a percentage of the CPC (Cost per Click). Google keeps the percentage
secret but it is generally thought to be around the 60% mark.
If that is 60% of a $10+ ad you can see how having Adsense on your
website can become very profitable.
