Greetings to ALL from Adelaide in South Australia!

Introduction...

There will be quite a few newcomers to Wealthy Affiliate who might have heard about Google Adsense but may not know what Google Adsense is all about and how it works.

Also, there is a lot of positive and negative opinion about whether it is worth having a Google Adsense account.

At the end of this tutorial I am going to give you 2 links where you can go to decide for yourself!

One of the links will take you directly to the Google Adsense Tutorial (positive) and the other link will take you to one of the WA Ambassadors' Tutorial (objective).

I have been trying to learn how to build my internet marketing business for over 4 years now, and one of the first things I was advised to do was get myself an Adsense Account once I had a website that might be worthwhile in Google's opinion!

Right from the start, I want to let you know I am yet to have any personal experience with Google Adsense. I built a website, which I thought looked OK and carried enough content and met all the criteria they demand you have. And this is what happened...

I was disapproved, then I was approved, and then I was disapproved again and still I am disapproved! I don't know why they approved me and then disapproved me...they won't tell me!

I have seen this topic floating around in here at WA so I thought I would try to explain what Google Adsense is all about and how it works.

The next page is...

What Is Google Adsense?

One more question. My websites need to be 100% finished?

Hi
Your website is never finished.
To keep it alive, still relevant and discoverable to the search engines you need to keep adding new content.
If you ever stop adding content your website will simply fade away

Steve, Mate. What can I say, except thank you so much for the good read.

As a newbie, I am overwhelmed by all the info. I was trying to figure out this Adsense affiliation for the last couple of days. It's hard to finish your sites, do the training and learn what is important to accomplish on a fast track.

I have had to go outside the box. It seems I am learning faster this way. Once I am up and running, I will slow my pace a little.

I am 95% finished with two sites, which G Adsense should have quite an interest in. They are both green niches, in which I have interest and knowledge.

Thanks to training like this, I am getting there.

Thanks. Kiss a Koala for me:)

Good morning...
I am so glad I had & took the time to read this. You have certainly clarified for me what Google Adsense is & how it can possibly benefit me.

I have been denied by affiliate merchants leaving me feeling discouraged yet, everytime I take a step back & focus on something else the Universe sends someone like you to inspire me to try this, try some other avenue.

Thank you for caring enough about our success too.

I wish you a productive, prosperous day~

I am a little afraid that it is not the little coins you can earn in worth it. It can quickly ruin an experience of a website that suddenly comes an advertisement in the middle of the text

Just tried to set one up an account. can't do it under a subdomain like SiteRubix. Has to be a straight domain. Like www.example.com: not www.example.siterubix.com. I thought we were able to move our SiteRubix to a regular domain once we became Premium without having to buy one.
Reply
gs1954 Premium
we can move our site,but every domain has to be registered,and a fee has to be paid.
cheers
Reply
Steve1958 Premium
Hi Jim...

You can move it for free if your site name has not been taken by anyone else and you get free hosting as well...here is Kyle's tutorial... Let me know if you have any probs...:)

Thanks for the help. was very informative, however, it's still going to cost 14.00 for the domain name.

Thanks, Steve, I really enjoy reading your educational blogs, simply because you do not put up something and write negatively about it because you have not experienced it. I have just been approved with ADSENSE GOOGLE. To be honest, Steve I have researched most of the affiliate programs that is associated with my niche GRIEVING/GRIEF, there are many but not what I would like to recommend to my audience. I mostly want to promote spiritual healing and came up with Christianbooks.com affiliate, I am using them for educational means to spiritual healing etc. When I was approved google I just thought to go with them for the meantime. But I am so happy you put this up, it gives me a positive feeling that I am at least a step in the right direction while I am still researching.

Thanks Steve

Steve, Thanks for sharing!

I'm definitely considering AdSense as something to try later when my site has lots of content and is drawing significant traffic.

However, I don't like that clicking an AdSense link opens on the same page and takes the user away from your site. Would be nicer to open the ad link a new tab.

Wishing you a wonderful 2017!

- Oren

Some people will recommend to wait until you get some decent traffic!

Lovely, my friend, and very well explained, not leaving out that crucial matter of objectivity!
Hope this tutorial makes it high on Google as well, this approach is so important in a world where affiliates are confronted with the necessity to choose, sometimes in a sea of facts and omissions.....

Thank you, Steve!

Thanks for sharing Steve. AdSense is another income generating tool that can be useful. i did receive comments from them for areas needing improvement on my site when I was disapproved.
I'll just continue to sharpen the knife's edge and try again later.
