A little history
Google AdSense was born in June 2003 a few years after Google Adwords . Until then, the publication of the advertisements on the websites was by agreements negotiated between Google and webmasters interested websites. SMEs were not involved because sites with less than 20 million page views were not allowed to participate.
But Google quickly understood the interest to set up an automated system that would allow any website to publish advertising on its pages. Google AdSense was born!
What is Google AdSense?
Google AdSense is the advertising network of Google . In short, Google AdSense allows all websites to publish their pages of advertising in the form of banner ads (text, image, video clickable).But where it gets interesting is that Google AdSense allows you to monetize your traffic. In other words, every time a user browsing your site clicks on one of these banners, you earn money!
How does Google AdSense work?
Google AdSense offers its users a range of advertising banners to place on their site. Until then, it’s pretty basic. But the strength of this service lies in the fact that you do not need to choose which ads should appear. This is how Google will analyze your website and determine which banners should be placed so that they are relevant to the content you are editing.
Ex: the deco blog, Decocrush. This blog publishes many articles on the theme of decoration (trends, beautiful apartments, decorating tips …).
Google AdSense has chosen advertising banners related to decoration: sale of fixtures, garden furniture Each time a visitor clicks on one of these banners, you earn a certain amount depending on the cost per click chosen by the advertiser.
And yes because Google AdSense is so to speak the Siamese twin of Google Adwords. One does not live without the other. Thus, advertisers who chose the paid listings on display (display banners on websites) pay part of the amount paid to AdSense subscribers site publishers. The rest is perceived by Google through a commission.
For information, Google AdSense accounted for 28% of Google’s revenue in 2011, almost $ 10 billion!
Does Google AdSense really make money?
It all depends on the amount and nature of your website traffic
Many websites based part of their strategy to monetize their traffic on the revenue generated by Google AdSense . So it works!
