money-matters-1173105Why Google adsense is the best way to monetize a blog?

On the internet when it comes to making money through a website/blog, PPC (Google adsense particularly, however we have other options as well like Media.net, infolinks.com, Chitika.com and tons more) is the most preferred monetization method because it is comparatively easier than other methods such as Affiliate Marketing where you have to convince people to buy the product you are promoting. You get paid certain percentage of commission for each sale you make. Selling a product online is a tedious job unless you are a well known personality on the internet and endorsing the product after using it.

The other reason of writing this article is many people contact me online as well as offline asking what are the highest paid niches to setup a blog around so that they could earn good money per click. Although how much you earn for each click depends on various factors such as the locations clicks are coming from, Bounce Rate, Number of posts on the blog etc., yet the clicks in these niches generally pay better than other.

  • Excellent Article!

  • I think everyone should read this post before starting a blog.

  • First of all thank you so much for this fantastic article. It’s going to help so much to understand the money making tips for all… The truth is that many people ignore high CPC long tail words and join the masses in competing for seed words that aren’t worth fighting for.

    While blogging, sometimes I also get high click from $10 to $50, Recently I have got $60.40 from 3 clicks, The Avg per click cost is $20.13, and the country is Netherlands, I guess there are some ads like CPA networks which pays $20 per lead for pin submits etc, good news is, my traffic are from 3rdworlds! Lol!

    But I must tell you… Nowadays to get ranking on high CPC keyword is very tough, we have to use only the long tail CPC keywords in our posts, and it will drive more AdSense earnings, you’ll net get this high CPC all the times! But if you want to get high CPC, try to choose high paying niche! E.g., cancer, payday loans, forex, hosting, etc! But if you site about blogging, Adsense money, SEO, etc! Trust me you’ll get crap!

    It is also necessary that traffic should come through organic search only. If I drive traffic of USA and UK through social media to my website on keywords having high CPC then shall I will get the same commission as through organic search or will it differ.

  • Oh, Honestly I don’t know we can filter keyword research by this. Normally, I just filter by the competition. New lesson learned 🙂 Thank you 🙂

  • I could not resist commenting. Perfectly written! http://bing.net
