Why 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.
