Google Adsense is a very common method businesses use to
advertise their business online. It involves working with other
websites who host ads for various businesses. The host website
gets paid a certain amount every time a consumer clicks the link
to the advertiser’s website. This is an effective and low cost
way of advertising. It is also a way for host websites to earn
extra revenue. There are some frequently asked questions about
Google Adsense, so I am going to provide the answers here for
What are channels? They allow the advertiser to see detailed
reports about particular advertisements. This is a great way to
find out what ads are doing the best as well as which websites
that they are on are leading to the most traffic directed to
your website. There are two types of channels: URL and custom.
URL channels require you to enter the URL that you want to
track. You can choose to track an entire website or only
individual pages of it. Custom channels allow you to track
information by a particular ad to compare them.
Websites that host advertisements frequently ask when they will
get paid. Payments are only made monthly of $100 or more. You
will receive either a check or automatic deposit, which ever you
prefer, within 30 days of the previous month. If your earnings
are less than $100 they will continue to accumulate until they
reach more then $100. For example if you earn $110 in December
you will be paid $110 within 30 days. If you earn $40 for
December you won’t get a payment. If you earn $40 more in
January you won’t get a payment. In February you earn $40 more.
Your account balance is now $120 and payment will be received
within 30 days of the end of February.
A common concern of website hosts for advertisements is do I
have any control over the ads placed on my website? These
websites do get the opportunity to filter the content that comes
in for ads. You simply choose the Competitive Ad Filter in the
AdSense Setup tab. You will be walked through the filtering
process from there.
How much will I earn? This varies depending on the number of ads
you host on your website, how much they pay per click, and the
number of responses each ad gets. There is no set amount you are
guaranteed to earn and no maximum earning potential.
How much will it cost? There is a five dollar set up fee to
start advertising. Then you will be charged depending on the
amount you agreed to pay per click. The more clicks your ads
receive, the more you will be charged during that month.
What if I want to stop being a part of Google Adsense?
Advertisers and websites that host advertising can choose to
stop being a part of the Google Adsense network at any time.
Written notice has to be mailed or emailed to Google. Within ten
days the account will be discontinued. Advertisers will still be
charged per click during that ten day span.
