What is Google AdSense ?
If you are reading this article, you might already have a good idea what Google AdSense is all about. But in case you don't, let me tell you in brief.
Google AdSense, or simply called 'AdSense' is one of the way people use to monetize (make money) from a website. It make use traffic coming to a website in promoting advertisement. The website can be anything, can be a product selling website, service selling website, information providing website or just a personal blog.
With AdSense, you will need to put a certain code into a web page that will connect the page to Google's advertisement server. The connection will pull in advertisements which are relevant to the web page the code resides. So, the advertisement will be blending to the overall topics on the page. Neat, right?
It is done through a system, where Google crawls the web page (inside the website) and analyse the content of it in determining what advertisements are relevant. It's all automatic.
So, how will it monetize the website ? The owner of the website will get paid some fee every-time a visitor clicks on an advertisement. The fee is coming from a percentage of what Google get from the advertiser. Every ad has its own different value.
How to get started on AdSense ?
First, would be getting an AdSense account from Google.
People might tried and failed on this one. The easiest (proven) is to start by having a blog site at Google's blogger site (http://www.blogger.com), a blogging service provided by Google. Go there and create yourself a blog. You can create any blog you want then post several articles on it. You can either create the articles yourself or just pick them off the net. After a day or two, sign up an AdSense account at Google AdSense site (http://www.google.com/AdSense).
Google will need sometime to process your request. This can be ranging from several hours to several days but usually it is several hours.
On approval, you will get an email telling you what steps need to be taken to get started on your AdSense account. The steps are quite straight-forward and details, so I don't think you'll have any problems with that. They even give you links to video tutorials to make sure you understand what are needed.
After you have a Google AdSense account, you can put AdSense codes to your web pages. These web pages can be on your blog that you created earlier or a completely different website. So, there is no restriction to where to put your AdSense code (as long as you follow the Google AdSense Terms and Conditions).
Now, you are up and ready to begin your journey on Google AdSense.
