Making Money with Google

I'll be the first to stand up and say I LOVE Google Adsense and the money I make with their ad program. I think anyone who has a blog or website needs to sign up for Google Adsense and make a little something off their efforts.

There are a few things I'd like to point out about Google though -

1. Don't EVER click your own ads. Even if you're curious to see what the ad is! That can get you knocked right out of the program and is called "click fraud."

If you are curious about an ad that is appearing on your site, simply run your mouse over the ad and in the lower left corner of your computer screen, you'll see the web address for the organization who is placing that particular ad.

2. Don't invite family and friends to click! I don't know exactly to what extent Google is tracking the logistics of clicks, but I'm sure there is something there that would tell Google the same people are clicking all the time - that can get you kicked out too.

Now for the good stuff -

3. When you are logged into your Google Adsense account, make sure to read all the handy little tips they offer. Google invested a great deal of time and money into seeing what programs work best, what ad placements generate the most clicks and it's all there for your benefit. After all, when you are successful, Google is successful.

If you have any questions about Google Adsense, please feel free to post them annonymously in the comment section here or over on the blogger forum of

Happy Blogging ~
