How To Find A Profitable Niche For An Adsense Site

By Kevin Anderson
When the dotcom balloon burst everybody thought that was the end of an era. Many saw the internet as a cash cow and when many sites collapsed, this notion popped. Internet investors went scurrying away hoping to save what was left of what they have invested.

But the internet is not one to be counted out. One great idea alone can turn into huge profits. And even if it’s not as what it was before, many people can still count on earning some extra money from the internet. All it takes is one good idea and a bit of diligence.

Google’s Adsense is such an idea. This is a great ad program that allows many webmasters and site owners to profit from their sites as an advertising partner of Google. Adsense allows sites to have access to Google’s advertisers and direct the certain market or product based on keywords and content to a site that has the same market or niche.

When a visitor of the site clicks on an adsense ad, the webmaster or adsense site owner gets a percentage of what the advertisers pay per each visitor from the linked site. This is what we call pay-per-click advertising. Many sites have caught on and have seen the growth and potential of Adsense, so many in fact that Google has rejected some of those who have tried to apply.

Having your own site doesn’t guarantee a sure spot in having Adsense in your site, or for that matter making it successful. You have to find a niche that can get you the traffic that can guarantee you a market. Finding a niche is not that easy, there are many competitions in the internet market, but to succeed in such endeavor, there are certain steps to go through to at least give you a fighting chance. Follow these easy steps on how to find a profitable niche for an Adsense site.

Decide which niche you can do based about your passions and interests.

If your niche Adsense site is based upon what interests you and is something your are all too willing to undergo, everything would seem easier since you would be enjoying working on your Adsense site as well. Hours would just seem minutes and before you know it, you have your Adsense site.

Spend a few minutes or a couple of hours deciding on the niches you like. List them in order of their priorities to you based on your passion for them. If you can’t think of one there are many sites that can generate many niche website ideas that can help you. They are based on what is popular and rapidly growing in the internet based on their keyword searches in search engines.

Find out about all the other people who may share your passion for the niche you have chosen.

It is important that you find a niche market online that can act as your customers or clients in the future. If you plan on making money for your Adsense site (of course you do!) then you have to make sure that you find people who share your interest on the niche you have chosen.

This is one of the easiest procedures or steps you have to do before making your niche for your Adsense site, research. All you have to do is go to Google and type in the keyword of the niche you have selected and off you go.

Go to sites that have forums that are based upon your niche. Read and join in their discussions, learning more about your target market along the way. These people will become your market in the future. Find out about what they want and need so that you can get many ideas that can help make your site better.

Make sure that the niche you have chosen has a market that is willing to spend money.

Make sure of this point so that you are ensured that your site can make profits. This will also be relatively easy to find out. Check out all the pages that feature the niche you have chosen and see if there are many ads there. You may also check out the search results page of Google after searching the keyword if there are many sides on the ads side. If there are, then you can be pretty sure there is a market out there willing to spend some money.

Get your site running.

Armed with your research on what your niche market wants, get a product that can be sold to your market. Find sub niches that can also provide other needs. These sub niches should fall into the main niche category. Find good keywords for your site so that you can generate traffic. With good traffic you can see the people just rushing in toy our site and clicking on the Adsense on your page. The more traffic and the more clicks could spell more income for you.

Google Adsense Basics

By Vincent Murphy
You’ve heard about Google AdSense, but how does it work? Can you really make money by just allowing Google to place ads on your website? And if so, how much money can you make? The following are the most informational Google AdSense basics you need to know.

You must first have a website before you can apply for a Google Adsense account and start profiting from Google AdSense. You are more likely to be rejected if you use a free domain, so invest in your own domain. And make sure that your website makes sense; that may sound obvious, but if you are running a website that is disorganized with random content scattered all over the place, you will not be viewed as professional and will most likely be rejected.

Once your site has been accepted, Google will give you a code to paste on your site, thus enabling them to start placing ads on your site that are relevant to the content of your site. For example, if your website is about creating scrapbooks, Google might place ads on your site dealing with places to purchase scrapbook materials.

Now, what about making money? Google makes money by advertising. So, by placing ads on your site, you are helping them to advertise by providing them with a place to display their ads. Every time a visitor to your site clicks on one of the ads that Google has placed on your site, you receive a certain percent of the money. It’s a win/win situation. Google AdSense allows you to view your account and earnings information at any time, and once a month you will receive a check for the amount of money you earned.

Of course, these are just the Google AdSense basics, and more detailed information can be found at www.google.com/adsense.

So, if you’re dedicated to the website you operate, why not make an extra profit from it as well? Or, maybe you’re looking for a way to make some extra cash on the side and are interested in a subject enough to create a website for it. Either way, consider these Google AdSense basics and check into opening a Google AdSense account of your own.

Earth To Adsense Newbies: Slow Down!

By Donna Monday
The Washington Post recently published an article featuring many ordinary people who’ve become financially successful due to displaying Google Adsense ads on their web site. These folks are pulling in $10,000 to $40,000 a month. They are definitely stars in the world of Adsense publishers.

Web publishing newbies read stories like this and start salivating over the possibility of pulling in big bucks. If those people can do it, why not me? Is their reasoning. And, there’s nothing wrong with that kind of thinking. Everyone’s looking for a way to make money from the Internet. These types of stories are great motivators.

But let’s look a little deeper into what it takes to make $10,000 a month or more this way.

Each one of the people featured in the article has a niche they are working in, and not just any niche, but a great niche that brings in lots of traffic. Andrew Leyden has a podcasting directory. David Miles Jr. and Kato Leonard give away MySpace design pages. Jock Friedly specializes in free public documents. Matther Daimler researches the best airline seats.

Funny. No MFA scraper sites were featured. Maybe because these people are all focused on long-term success, not short-term gains. Please resist clogging up the Internet with thousands of auto-generated sites with contextual ads thrown on a few pages to make a quick buck. Search engines are cracking down on these so you’ll find it hard to get rich this way.

The big earners found a niche that interested them and put a lot of long hours and work into making their sites user friendly and informative. Some may even have spent good money bringing in traffic as well. What you’re reading in the WAPO story is the end result of much dreaming, planning, and slaving over a computer for hours at a time.

Unless you have a gazillion dollars to spend on buying technical resources and hiring people to create content, there is no quick and easy way to make big bucks with your web site, especially if it’s brand new.

If your goal is to build an online empire, plan to spend at least two years doing research, writing, SEO, publicity, tweaking, and learning how to make the best web site possible. That’s right. Two years. It took all of those ordinary folks TIME to get their sites to the point where they created buzz and traffic, and yes, earning great money.

It will take you time too, just like the rest of us. If you want to make the big bucks faster, then work longer and harder. Now, that’s the real story behind those success stories. So, slow down and don’t get discouraged if you’re not an overnight sensation - nobody is. Remember that old saying:

Slow and Steady Wins the Race.

Adsense And Article Marketing

By Chuck Crawford
You’ve heard about the Adsense craze and decided that you are going to get your share of Adsense cash cow. You’ve either built a website or purchased one, and now you’re ready to rock! You submit it to every search engine and directory that you can think of, dreaming of thousands of surfers coming in from every engine on the planet. All begging to click your Adsense links and make you rich.
Then you sit back and wait. And wait. And wait some more. Checking your stats daily hoping to see the rush of traffic pouring in. But for some reason it just doesn’t come.
The days of the above business plan working are long over. It might have worked in 1996, but in 2006 you’re going to have to do a lot more to promote your new website. There are still free traffic sources out there, but they want something in return to link to your new site. Content.
This is where article marketing comes in. The concept is simple. You write an article that’s relevant to your sites topic, inserting a link or two within the article or the articles footer, linking back to your website. Then you submit it to article directories. They in turn publish your article, giving you a RELEVANT link back to your site and possibly sending you some of their traffic.
Many of the article directories out there have a lot of good traffic to share. They also can really help your Google Page Rank when it comes time for Google to rank your site. Google wants to see INBOUND links to your site from other sites with similar content. So the links these article directories can give you are crucial to the weight of your website in the long run.
But the article directories are just the first stop for your article. Almost all of the article directories encourage other webmasters to republish your content on their own sites with similar topics. So one article can really turn into literally thousands of inbound links over the months ahead. This snowball effect is exactly what we are looking for with each article we write.
Article marketing is only as powerful as your commitment to it though. To really build your site’s traffic and page rank you are going to need thousands, if not ten’s of thousands of inbound links. One or two articles is not going to do this for you. It’s going to take a daily time commitment on your part. As the owner of two different article directories ( www.articles.pn and www.articlescience.com/ ) , I can tell you that there are many article marketers out there submitting as many as ten articles a day in an effort to promote their websites. They obviously see the value of article marketing and they don’t intend to do the job halfway.
“But Chuck! I can’t write an article!” I hear this all the time from my customers. Frankly, it’s an easy copout. What you’re really saying to me is that you don’t WANT to write articles. You don’t have to be an ex journalism major to write a short article to promote your website. Heck, you don’t even need to be a high school graduate. All you need to do is to be able to read and write. If you can’t read and write then you probably don’t need to be the owner of a website.
It’s very simple. Sit down and write about the topic of your website. Hopefully when you built or purchased your website you picked a topic that you’re at least interested in. It doesn’t have to be a topic that you’re familiar with, just something that interests you. If you’re website’s topic is something you know nothing about, do some research! Write an article sharing what you learned with other readers. You can start as simply as “I didn’t know this, and you may not either….”
If you’re suffering from severe writer’s block, try using a tape recorder. Dictate things you would like to say about your site or your site’s topic and then transcribe what you recorded later. You can take the recording and edit it in writing and come up with a good article.
The bottom line is this. If you want to promote your new website without spending thousands of dollars, you must integrate article writing into your promotion plan. Without it, your road to success is going to be a lot more bumpy.

7 Steps Of Mega Adsense Earners

By Andrew Daum
The Google AdSense program is like finding money in the street.
Kids in High School are making thousands of dollars a month with Adsense... Housewives, Retiree's, Mom and Pop's who've never made a dime on the Internet have created full time incomes by simply placing AdSense Ads on their web site or blog.
Then you have the "Super AdSense" earners. We have all heard of them... the Elite few who are on track to make half a million dollars a year or more promoting AdSense sites.
Do not be mistaken though... these people are not building like your Mom and Pop's do. They have systems in place that create sites for them... people who build sites for them... they have outsourced and automated many of the tedious tasks such as posting to blogs and searching for keywords.
While most people cannot emulate everything these Super AdSense earners do... many of them you can.
Here are 7 Required Steps you can implement today to copy their success.
1) Starting today... treat your AdSense business like it is a REAL business and track what you do.
Begin tracking what you are doing that works... as well as what you are doing that does not work. This will keep you from making the same mistakes over and over, and you can repeat the steps that have worked in the past. As simple as this step seems... most people do not know the reason(s) to their success or failure.
2) Utilize the latest tools and software available.
The Super AdSense earners are not any smarter than your average person. I know many people think they are... but for the most part, they are regular non techie people.
They are smarter in one respect though... they use the latest tools available to them to automate most of the tasks involved with researching and creating sites. They use the latest keyword, site creation and search engine optimization tools available. The tools they use are their secret weapons.
3) Quit chasing the Mega Dollar keywords.
You cannot compete with the search engine experts who create sites for the $80 payout keywords. You may get lucky every now and then... but in the long run, you are better off building sites for the low to mid range payout keywords. The competition is less, and your chance of success is much higher over the long term.
4) Choose broad niches and break it down.
Choose a broad subject as your main theme (lets use computers for an example). From there... break it down into as many sub niches as possible.
Using Computers as the example... you could build sub niches/sites like laptop computers, computer hard drives, computer keyboards, etc, etc. You could literally build hundreds of sites around one major theme and stay totally focused. Once you have exhausted every possible sub niche of that major theme... choose another main theme and repeat the process.
5) KISS
Keep your sites easy to navigate and forget the fancy graphics that distract your visitors attention. Unless you are just building AdSense sites for the fun of it and to impress your friends... the purpose of having the site is to have people click on one of the ads, right? Then keep the site layout simple... dump the scrolling banners, dancing chickens and colored scroll bars... they are distractions.
6) What is the purpose of your web site?
Your web site cannot be everything to everybody. If you have a full fledged ecommerce site, with products for sale... links to other products, it is not a good site for AdSense. If the primary focus of the site is to sell products... let it do that.
Do not distract or confuse your visitor with to many options or choices. The best AdSense sites are AdSense only content sites that sell nothing. They are sites that "Tell"... not "Sell."
7) Be consistent.
This is not one of those deals where you build one site and you are done. Refer back to Step #4. You must continuously build in order to be successful.
Think of it as planting a crop that you will harvest in a month or two, and the sites you build are seeds. Once the seeds have grown and matured... you will reap the harvest. The more seeds you plant... the larger the harvest.
To sum it up... utilize the tools available to automate as much of the process of building sites - doing research and building keyword lists as you can. This alone will help keep you organized and on track. Be consistent in building... treat it like the business it is and you will reap the rewards of your harvest.
