Chapter 1: Introduction




You™ve probably heard a lot about Google AdSense
(which is actually more accurately known as Google
AdSense V1), but you may not know just what it is. Well,
for one thing, it™s a one of the hottest new ways to make
money online without having to do a whole lot. If you™ve
read Robert Kiyosaki™s book, “Rich Dad, Poor Dad,” you
know that passive income is the best kind of income to
have.
Passive income is income that you get without
having to work for it. I know this may sound like some
kind of “pie in the sky” get-rich-quick scheme, but passive
income is for real. In fact, I would reasonably say that
every billionaire on earth uses the power of passive income
to keep money coming in while he or she jets off to parties
and resorts and whatever else billionaires do.
The best example of passive income in the physical
world is real estate. When you own an apartment building
and hire a property manager and a maintenance crew to

take care of it for you and collect the rents, all you have to
do is cash the checks that roll in.
Of course, passive income doesn™t just happen
overnight, or everyone would be getting it. In the case of
the apartment building owner, it took money, time, and
knowledge to set up an S corporation, find a building to
buy, put up the cash to buy it with and get a loan for the
rest, renovate it, then screen and hire the property
manager and maintenance crew. But once that was all
done, checks began rolling in with little or no effort.
Well, Google Adsense is the online equivalent of that
scenario. You™ll have to invest a little bit of time in
learning about it, and a little more time setting it all up,
but once you get it set up you can look forward to seeing
those nice checks roll in.




What is Google Adsense?


Google AdSense is a fast and absolutely ridiculously
easy way for people with websites of all types and sizes to
put up and display relevant Google ads on the content
pages of their site and earn money.
Because the Google AdSense ads relate to what your
visitors came to your site to read about, or because the




How to Build an Adsense Kingdom “ Copyright 2005 by Eric Holmlund

ads match up to the interests and characteristics of the
kind of people your content attracts, you now have a way
to improve your content pages AND make some serious
bucks off of them.
Google AdSense is also a way for site owners to
provide Google search capability to visitors and to earn
even more money by putting Google ads on the search
results pages. Google AdSense gives you the ability to
earn advertising revenue from every single page on your
website”with a minimal investment of your time
So what kind of ads do you have to put up? That™s
the good part”you don™t have to decide. Google does it
for you. AdSense always delivers relevant ads that are
precisely targeted”on a page-by-page basis”to the
content that people find on your site. For example, if you
have a page that tells the story of your pet fish, Google
will send you ads for that site that are for pet stores, fish
food, fish bowls, aquariums¦you get the picture.
If you decide you want to add a Google search box
to your site, then AdSense will deliver relevant ads
targeted to the Google search results pages that your
visitors™ search request generated.

If you™re into upgrades, Google is now offering
“AdSense Premium”, which is CPC based and, for the time
being, offers less flexibility in terms of ad sizes -- only
banners and skyscrapers are currently available. You can
apply using existing AdWords accounts, or you can request
a new account. Applicants are usually notified within a day
as to whether they™ve been accepted for the program.
Here™s the thing you need to know: Google has no
strict criteria for acceptance into the AdSense program,
and AdSense doesn™t hit you with a minimum traffic
requirement. The only criteria they™re really sticky about is
the standard “acceptable content” requirements, and that™s
pretty standard almost anywhere.

Google AdSense says they™re serious about attracting
quality content sites, and because of that they only allow
AdSense members to serve ads on pages with actual
content on them (it can™t be a page of ONLY ads). They
have a variety of ad styles from you to choose from,
including banners and skyscrapers.(Note: banners are
those horizontal ads that run up top and down bottom.
Skyscrapers are the tall ads that run vertically, on the left
or right of your page text.)
Once you™ve been accepted into Google AdSense,
you™ll be able to get the AdSense advertisements on any
site you own using the same ad code, provided you obey
the Google guidelines. (And that™s very, very important”
more on that later.)
Your reporting doesn™t occur in real time, but I™d say
it™s pretty close. The stats are updated regularly
throughout the day. You can also view reports based on a
domain or site basis if you run the AdSense on more than
one site.
Before you sign up, you really ought to read the
lengthy and detailed FAQ on the AdSense site.

What Can it do for Me?



In three words, earn you money. More relevant ads
on your pages translates into more clicks”and more
money that you will receive. When users click on an ad,
Google will pay you. If you™ve set up your own sales team,
you™ll get an additional benefit: AdSense complements
their efforts. It doesn™t compete with them. With
AdSense, you get a reporting page that gives you a
breakdown on how your ads are doing and what they™re
bringing in.

Google has a huge advertiser base, so they have ads
for all kinds of businesses and for just about every type of
content no matter how broad or specialized it is. And since
Google provides the ads, you don™t have to spend time
talking to your advertisers.
AdSense represents advertisers that span the
spectrum. These advertisers range from large global
brands to small and local companies. And ads are targeted
by geography so global businesses can display local
advertising easily. One more thing: you can use AdSense
in many languages.

So how does AdSense figure out how to do all this
targeted advertising? Well, AdSense has the ability to
deliver relevant ads because the gurus at Google
understand how web pages really work and they™re
continually refining their technology to make it smarter all
the time.
For example, some words can have several different
meanings depending on context. You™ve seen this happen
with “two” and “too” and “to.” Google technology is smart
enough to understand these distinctions from the context
that the word appears in, so you get more targeted ads.
When you put a Google search box on your site you
start making money off of web searches that people do on
your site. This ability to search off of your page keeps
them on your site longer”since they can search from right
there where they are”and it will only take you a few
minutes to get AdSense up and running. The best part is
that AdSense is free for you to use!
