1. Adsense

Adsense is almost as old as the internet and one of the staples as far as monetizing a blog or website is concerned. There are alternatives such as BuySellAds, Propeller Ads, Chitika and Skimlinks but Adsense is the (grand)daddy of them all. 

It’s a fairly straightforward idea – you must have been to a website that has Adsense adverts. Basically you sign up for an account and a code is generated which you add to your site:

This code looks at the keywords in the content of the website page you have placed it on and then displays adverts that might interest people who are reading your page.

The ads can be vertical or horizontal and they are ‘geo-localized’ so, if your page is about ‘Judo’, and its being read by someone in Mumbai, India, a list of advertisers in that area will show, and the reader might get a list of Judo clubs in the area. If the reader clicks on a link and goes to a provider’s site, you get paid. 

The minimum requirement is that your blog or website should be over 6 months old to qualify for an Adsense account. In addition, there is content Adsense won’t support and as with anything there are terms and conditions and these differ depending on which country you are in. 

Although it’s possible to make a lot of money using Adsense, you have to be realistic. Depending on the subject matter (and it does make a big difference), a website with 1000 visitors a day might only make between $60 to $120 per month. It’s not a bad start, but don’t quit your day job.
