Consequently, you should pay very close attention to the Quality Guidelines listed, which outline some of the illicit practices that may lead to a site being removed entirely from the Google index or otherwise affected by an algorithmic or manual spam action.

  • Place ads above the fold
  • Have a leader board ad below your header/logo
  • Include in-content ads.
  • Monitor results
  • Read all email from Google

Steps to monetizing a website with Google AdSense:

  1. Read the Terms and Conditions. Make sure that your website meets all the criteria.
  2. Proceed to sign up for AdSense and wait for approval.
  3. Once your account is approved, embed the JavaScript code into a widget.
  4. Place the ads anywhere you like on your website.

Find success with website Adsense advertising.

This success is dependent on the strong traffic flow of both new visitors and returning visitors.

To achieve website monetization success, the  YAIOA Blog stresses the following:

  • Content needs to be of high quality and properly optimized.
  • The published text should include keywords. These keywords will make it simpler for Google to display the most relevant ads for your site.
  • Contextual adverts find their way to people interested in your content. If not, there will be no clicks on the ads.
  • Google AdSense is satisfactory for sites having less than 25k visitors. However, once you have over 25k visitors,  say between 25k to 100k visitors. You should try out MediaVine and AdThrive.

Now you are ready to make moola from your website effort.
