Its been a while these make money with adsense posts need to be updated. Things have changed so much after making this post in on how to make money with adsense. I am updating this blog post with the latest changes and how you can still make money using adsense but the new strategy but it is not easy as before since some of the ideas I though you about niche site building, blog networks and adwords Arbitrage will not work anymore. You still will be able to read my old blog post I am not deleting it but you can see the content below the updated version of the blog posts.
Adsense is not dead people still make money adding adsense code to their website and make money. But they way you do it and the strategies have changed. If you have been online reading popular SEO or online marketing blogs you might have come across animal words like Penguin and Panda these are the names the Google and SEO community has names the recent updates made by Google’s Algorithm.
Before you want to know how to make money or earn some passive income via Google Adsense you need to understand the latest SEO techniques which is working and not to following the old techniques which is not only outdated but also can get your site penalized by Google recent Algorithm updates.
Content is still king on the internet. Those days when there where few websites out there it was easy to rank and manipulate the search engines using some shady techniques but now search engines algorithm has changed so much and got smarter than before which made things harder for online marketers to get their website ranked on Google.
Some of the old techniques still work like writing great pillar content or resources on your blogs or websites.
Below I have explained some of the way you can make money still using Google adsense but success is not guaranteed.
1) Write awesome content useful for your readers:- In my old version of this post I referred writing content for the sake of search engines but it doesn’t work any more you need to write useful and well researched articles before you post the content on your website. The bigger the better. Instead of writing short and very thin content you can write blog posts with very detail search engines would love to it because of the quality content. I have read some blog posts which are more than 3000-4000 words which rank high on search engines without even doing a single link building to that blog post.
Create value to your content for the users. If you create value people will automatically will share the information with other users and the more the content is shared it can bring in high quality backlinks without you lifting your finger to get back links.
2) Share you content with social media:- When I wrote this older version of this blog post social media was not that popular but today anyone who reads this blog should have at least one social media profile. Use social media as a platform to promote your content. If your content has value to the user it will be shared by other like minded people who are interested in your content to share with others. Google Algorithm has also included social signals as one of their 500 factors for ranking web page content. Some times these blog posts and content can go viral which in return can get your lots of backlinks to your website or blog.
3) No more 5 page content sites:- Niche site still works but you need to build valuable content and create an authority within that niche to get traffic. Building smaller sites with 4-5 pages sites are going because of the thin content Google updates made this sites not to be found anywhere within the 100 page results. Create authority sites within your niche is key for getting success online. There is still room for building Niche sites I still do that instead of building 1000’s of sites I focus on few sites with useful and valuable content. And these sites have earned me good income so far and has not hit by Google updates. Add valuable resources to these niche sites is a good idea to. For example if you are building a sites on truck driving schools. Build the site using useful information for anyone looking for driving schools like the schools, jobs they can find in their state and tips on taking up a career etc.
4) Keyword Research is still holds good:- Keyword research is the most important part of niche site building as well as for any website. Identifying the right keyword is still hold good. Google Keyword tool is still good but there are several other keyword tool like Market Samurai and Long Tail pro (just to let you know that these are affiliate links) where you can find new long tail keyword that Google Keyword tool cannot find. Invest in some good keyword research tool will really reward you in your making money with adsense journey. Also think out of the box like using how to search Google smartly with the addition of Google search instant it allows more keyword opportunity than before.
5) Don’t put all your eggs in one basket:- Even thought this blog post is about making money with adsense but if you put all your efforts in building your website and one fine day Google penalizes or your website drops in ranking you will lose all your hard work instead of doing that. Diversify into other money making techniques like affiliate marketing, build a email list, direct ad selling etc.
Hope this update helps you in your making money online efforts. Put your thoughts in the comments.

This is the question every webmaster or online entrepreneur asks himself. It is not easy to figure out exactly how much to make money from Adsense. Also it is difficult to locate online any information about Adsense which is true. There are several webmaster who really make great money out of Adsense and majority of them just make money to buy a burger or two. Having an Adsense program on your website is profitable that any other advertisement program on the web.
Google, of course hides the great deal about how much advertisers are paying for per click and the same applies how much the Adsense publisher makes from their sites.
Some of the strategies on how to make money is
1. Build smaller niche website
with few 100 pages of content. Since content is the king on the internet and search engine bots loves text, building content based text can earn your higher ranking on search engines for the desired keywords, target highly bidded keywords while building content for these niche sites. If you build 100 similar sites and each site will bring in at least $5 an average a day just imagine how much it would be at the end of the month. Just do the math and calculate how much we can earn revenue from Adsense using these techniques.
2. Build user generated content
sites like forums. Here it is not all your task you need to have visitors involved as well to be successful in these strategies. Forums can easily be set up if you have some techniques skills or you can hire someone to customize your forum, you might need some marketing effort in the beginning to drive traffic. Once you start getting some members on to your forum it will run by itself. Even through the Click Through rate on forums are pretty less if you apply the same strategy as above, building forums on unique niches and build through users content this can generate pretty good revenue from Adsense. Some of the most popular forums like http://forum.digitalpoint.com are one such example.
3. Building a network of blogs,
this is a strategy to make money with Adsense is a tedious work; you can create few niche blogs and start blogging with couple of posts a day. You will get constant and repeated visitors to you blog to read new posts and news about your niche, to be successful in this strategy is to update the blogs often, if you get delayed in posting on a regular basis you will traffic. Since search engine loves fresh content blogs will be indexed fast and started getting you traffic. Blogs like Johnchow.com, Entrepreneur-journey.com and problogger.net have been successful Adsense publishers through their blogs, you can also follow their route and another tip is to start blogs which you are comfortable in writing.
4. Another way is Adsense Arbitrage,
this can be achieved through PPC bid for keywords which are cheaper than the keywords on your site and these pay per click strategy can bring in traffic really cheap you get traffic through other Adsense publisher through to your site. The key for this kind of strategy is to bid for long tail keywords in your niche where people are not bidding for those keywords in the Pay per click programs. This techniques need not to wait to get organic traffic but will get immediate traffic to your site but be careful about you PPC bid don’t spend to much money on the PPC campaigns. But there is a catch in this strategy this technique works only with certain niches.
This Strategy don’t work any more. So I am striking these point out.
These are the few real techniques which works and suits well with the Google Adsense TOS, There are techniques as well which I don’t want to recommend because those tips can get your account terminated or against the TOS. These are the proven way to make decent revenue from your websites.
The important thing you need to know about while using Adsense on your site to make money online that Adsense depends on so many factors. But if you have a website with interesting content and many pages and if you are getting a regular large amount of traffic every day I am sure you can make pretty good amount from Google Adsense.
