Was it a little too quick for you? No worries, because I’ve shared the tutorial in the post below. Bookmark this, and come back to get to know the next step. With that said, let's get to know the basics first. 

Google AdSense: Things You Need to Know

In this section, I'll help you understand the basics of Google AdSense. It includes what AdSense is, how it works, and much more. Skip this section only if you're here for the AdSense tutorial.

What is Google AdSense

Google AdSense is a program run by Google through which you as a website publisher make money by displaying ads. These ads may be text, images, videos, or any interactive media. They are targeted to the site based on the content and audience. 

There are tons of benefits of using AdSense ads on your site. For example, there's no limit to how much you can make with AdSense. It doesn't require any specific product for a user to sell. And it doesn't require a complicated process to get started on the platform.

One of the biggest advantages of using AdSense is that you can manage your ads on several sites. There's no charge to get into the program. So, if you're looking to make money using your site, look no further than AdSense. 

Google AdSense Metrics: What Are the KPIs

But how will you measure your success? Yes, you got it. Using the most important AdSense metrics or KPIs, you can measure the progress. Metrics refers to the values you're measuring. Understanding them will help you act accordingly and earn money effectively.

Some of the most important Google AdSense metrics include:

  • Earnings
  • Ad Views
  • Number of clicks
  • Clickthrough Ratio (CTR)
  • AdSense revenue per visit
  • AdSense eCPM (Cost Per Mille)

And you can add all these metrics to your Google Analytics (GA) to measure your progress in real-time. But first, you need to link your AdSense account to your GA account. Here's the giveaway; pick the right AdSense metrics for measuring your success. 

How Does AdSense Work

The entire process of making money with Google AdSense is straightforward. It's a brilliant way for publishers like you to make money using the power of quality content. Advertisers want to display their ads on Google and Google-approved sites. Google displays them and gets a little money in return. And you get your money as a publisher as well. 

And this is how it works for you:

  • You make ad spaces available on your site 
  • Advertisers bid to show ads in those ad spaces
  • The highest paying ads get displayed on your site
  • Your website visitors start seeing and clicking on those ads
  • And you get paid by the Google AdSense program in return

As you can see, Google AdSense works on a cost-per-click revenue sharing basis. Isn't it simple? Comment under this post if it's not! And I'll shed more light on the subject. But how much can you get paid?

How Much Does AdSense Pay

Google AdSense pays 68% of the revenue generated by the number of ad clicks on your site. Google keeps the remaining revenue. This is how Google mainly makes money. And just to give you a number, it has made $146.9 billion in 2020.

Website owners get 51% of the revenue generated by the number of ad clicks using Google Search. So how much will you earn with AdSense? It's hard to say exactly. Why? It's because your earnings depend on these factors:

  • Type of content
  • CPM, CTR, and CPC
  • Location of your audience
  • Your ad placements and sizes
  • The niche of your site

And more. However, you can use Google's revenue calculator to estimate how much your site might earn. As per my experience, it lets you know a little more than you should really expect. Based on a number of factors, CPM (cost per 1000 ad impressions) can range from $0.3 to $2.

But if you create content around high CPC keywords, you may get as much as $50 revenue per click. And that's huge!

AdSense Requirements

For displaying AdSense ads, you need to apply for the program first. And for getting approved, you need to fulfill the minimum eligibility requirements for AdSense. For example, you must have your own unique content and abide by the AdSense policies.

Let me reveal a few more criteria for you to follow:

  • You must be 18 years of age
  • Own your site
  • Your site must have unique content
  • It must have clear navigation
  • Don't go for fake traffic
  • Abide by Google Content Policies
  • Respect the copyright law
  • Use the AdSense supported language
  • Have technical pages like Privacy, Contact or About pages

Also, your site should be at least six months old before you apply to AdSense. But it's not a requirement. You can apply for AdSense anytime. But I recommend going for it once you have at least 100 visitors per day. The more, the better!

3 Types of Website for Quality AdSense Revenue

There are three types of sites that have quality AdSense revenue, according to Google. And it's important to understand this because this is how you'll monetize your site effectively. 

These website types include:

  1. A blog site like InQuickSticks
  2. Forum site like H-Educate Forums
  3. Free online tool site like H-Supertools

You need to create quality content regardless of the type of sites you choose. But you will say that a tool site doesn’t need content. Well, it does. But the value it offers is more worthy than the content. 

Also, watch this video if you want to create a WordPress blog just like me:

Google AdSense Tutorial: How to Make Money With AdSense

This step-by-step guide will help you learn how to earn money with Google AdSense. From picking your niche to making bucks, I'll outline everything for you here. Sounds exciting? Let's get started right now.

Pick Your Niche

Picking your niche is probably the first step of starting almost anything online. Why? It's because the general horizon is pretty too competitive for you. Also, in this noisy world, you want to have your voice heard.

So choose a niche or theme you want to create content around. Even the tools have specific niches.

For example, the niche of H-Supertools is digital marketing. And the theme of H-Educate is also digital marketing and making money online.

Watch this video to come up with the best niche for your blog or site.

This is how you can choose a niche for your blog:

  • Explore yourself – pay attention to what you enjoy
  • Do the market research and monitor the gaps
  • Niche down from the list of best niches here
  • And fill in those gaps by creating content

What ads will be shown on your website and how much money you'll get depends on the ads displayed in your blog. Ads should be related to the contents of your site but not too general or specific either.

Buy Domain & Hosting

After you choose your niche, go for the perfect domain name and hosting as well. AdSense is a text-based ad network, so make sure your domain name has relevant keywords in it. But it's not a must, of course.

Branding domain names work just fine. Choose a hosting service that's reliable, fast, and secure. These are some of the top hosting services

I have been using their hosting services, and I vouch for their reliability. Connect the domain name with your hosting account. And set up WordPress to manage your blog's content.

Don't forget to benefit from these top WordPress plugins and tools to increase your site's functionality. After that, you would want to start creating awesome content.

Start Creating Quality Content

Content is the backbone of all the businesses in the world. Now that your site is ready with all the necessary tools, it's time to start creating quality content.

You don't want your blog visitors bouncing away in just a few seconds, right? So how do you create quality content?

Follow these quicks tips to create quality content:

  • Research and backup your claims with data or sources
  • Write in a way that's easy to understand
  • Break up your content into short and readable paragraphs
  • Use images, infographics, and videos to break the monotony
  • Stick to a publishing schedule

Before you get started with AdSense, I recommend you create and publish at least 30 or more posts. Your blog will start getting traction. And this is how you start a publishing business online. 

In forums, showcase the best topics and start engaging with your audience. And in a tool site, you can add SEO-optimized descriptions for tools.  

These are not compulsory requirements to apply for AdSense. But they help quickly get accepted by the ad network in most cases. 

Get Started with Google AdSense

Well, it's quite easy. Just create an AdSense account and add the AdSense code to your blog. This is how it will look like:

  • Read and implement the Google AdSense terms and conditions
  • Go to Google AdSense
  • Click on ‘Get Started'
  • Choose your payment country
  • Read and accept the terms and conditions
  • Start using AdSense

If you already have an AdSense account, here is how you can add a site:

  • Log in to your AdSense account
  • Go to Sites
  • Click on ‘Add Site’
  • Enter the URL of your site and submit it. 

Google will now provide you an HTML code that needs to be entered into your site for verification.

  • Copy your AdSense code and paste it into your site
  • And click on ‘Request Review’ 

This way, you have applied for an AdSense account so that you may display ads to make money with your site. Some people who find it challenging to get approved for AdSense ads. Let's understand why and how you can avoid disapproval from Google. 

Get Your Site Approved for AdSense

If you are honest with your job, it's unlikely for your blog to get disapproved of by Google AdSense. But for that, you must know how things work here.

Let me share a few tips on avoiding any disapproval from Google.

  • Provide all the correct information when applying for Google AdSense
  • Create high-quality content that adds value to your readers
  • Build some must-have pages like about, contact, and privacy
  • Don't use any copyrighted content at all
  • Ensure your website doesn't have illegal or pornographic content
  • Remove other ads when applying for AdSense

Wait after you've done everything right. Google AdSense has never rejected me. And the tips given above are the reasons for that. After getting approval, your site will start making money.

Connect Your Site With Google Analytics and Search Console

It’s not a must, you must analyze the data of your website to optimize it accordingly. For that, Google Analytics and Search Console can be handy. Both these products provide you with a lot of insight to grow your site. 

For example you can use queries suggested by Search Console to add to your existing posts or the new ones. This way, you’ll optimize your site for organic traffic.

FAQs on How to Make Money With Google AdSense

Let me answer the most frequently asked questions about Google AdSense now. 

How much money can I make with Google AdSense?

Google pays you per click on their ads, depending on your niche, targeted location and tons of other factors. Just to give you an idea, you may earn $0.20 to $15 per click in many cases. For example, I make $0.68 per click on my sites.

As for my earnings, I made $2667 for 400K pageviews at the time of making this video on my channel. If you share my audience and demographics, you may make $88 per day for around 13000 pageviews. 

Is Google AdSense free?

Google AdSense gets the cut from the advertisers to display ads on your site. Publishers like you will get 68% revenue share for your ads. But your participation in the program is free. 

What to do if my site gets rejected by Google AdSense?

Do not panic if your website doesn’t get approved by Google AdSense. Go back and invent the wheel again. See what you have done wrong and fix it. Read all the requirements before you actually apply for AdSense. 

How many posts are required to apply for AdSense?

Google doesn’t require you to have published a certain number of posts on your site. But I recommend publishing at least 30 posts before you apply for AdSense. And I also believe you should wait to see some organic traffic as well. 

How much time does it take to make money with AdSense?

You may start making money immediately after you start seeing ads on your site.  But how much time does it take to start making $1000 per month? Well, it depends, but it took me one year to hit $2000. And usually, 6-month time is enough to start getting substantial results.

  10. Thanks, Hassan.

  15. Hi,
    Thanks for sharing a valuable piece of information. As I comment before apply accordingly and reapply for AdSense after reading this article.

    Now, I got Google Adsense Approval Yesterday!!!

    Keep it up! I am following your H-Educate closely…

    Best Regards,
    Mohd Faraz Farooqui

  16. I have fulfilled all the website requirments content is written by me and also I’m 18 years old and all other requirments are completed. However, I still got rejected two times and it says that Low-value content. How can we fix it, even I watched lot of videos related to it but nothing worked.

  17. Hi Hasan,

    I have an idea for creating content for Adsense sites, what do you think?

    1) Use the H-Educate keyword tool to find high-paying CPC keyword phrases.

    2) Register a domain with the keyword in it or related to the keyword phrase.

    3) Start a podcast blog site, add Adsense code.

    4) Invite and interview guests who are related to the keyword phrase.

    5) Record the interviews, transcribe them and use transcription to create fresh content on the blog.

    6) Get your guests to promote their interviews to their contacts.

    7) Use free promotion methods to promote the podcast blog.

  18. The best approach to making money with Google Adsense is to focus on adding value to people’s life with your content rather than focusing on the money.

    If you focus on how to help people solve their problems genuinely, the money will follow. The secret many people in search of money don’t know is that: “Money has wings, if you chase it, it will fly away”. So do what money likes, and it will come to you.

    Focusing on helping people to solve their problems will help you curate high quality content, that, Google will find it difficult to disapprove. Write content that will make Google chase you and not the other way round.

    Having said this, I give 5 STARS as my rate of this article. The fact being that, Hasan, made mention of creating high quality content. Also, he made mention of Content being the backbone of all the businesses in the world.

    Create high quality content that will make it difficult for Google not to approve you on the adsene program.

    To all those looking for adsense approval, I wish you success.

    Best Regards!

    1. I totally agree.

      The point of interviewing experts around a specific topic with high CPC is the experts provide high-quality content in their answers that can be repurposed and published in different ways.

      The more I think about this, and with feedback like yours, the more it makes sense.

      Thank you for taking the time out of your day to provide well-thought-out feedback.

      I appreciate it.

  19. Hello Hasan,

    Google Adsense is the primary source to make money online for every online marketer, from beginner to expert.

    I have been using AdSense since 2009 in my blogs.

    There were no severe limitations in my early blogging journey, but the rules and regulations have been updated so much for a few years.

    Of course, the terms and conditions of Adsense give an excellent chance to content writers and web admins to make money online, but not for spammers.

    You wrote an excellent guide with video explanations.
    Thank you
