The online search engine giant Google.com created AdSense as an easy way for website publishers to earn advertising income. Adsense works by analyzing website and webpage keyword content and inserting ads based on those keywords. Visitors to the website will see ads that relate to the content they are viewing, so they may be more inclined to click on ad links. Adsense is free, flexible and easy to implement, which means even independent, home-based website and blog owners can earn money from advertising. Adsense features tools for customizing ad presentations and tracking results in addition to other useful options that complete its revenue-generating package.
AdSense users must be at least 18 years old and should already have a Google account to sign up for AdSense. A parent or guardian can apply and receive payments on behalf of minors. Participation is open to U.S. and foreign applicants throughout the world, but Google may require you to document your tax status through an IRS W-9 form or other means. If you do not own your own website with access to the HTML source code, Google’s blog and web hosting services enable you to create a site incorporating AdSense.
AdSense makes money based on the number of legitimate clicks an ad receives. The website publisher gets 68 percent of revenue as income. Each click may pay anywhere from a few cents to $10 or more in some cases. Google will pay out earnings once an account balance reaches $100. U.S.-based AdSense users receive income by check or by electronic funds transfer to a bank account.
