What is Google Adsense?

It is a program that you can participate in that lets you put small ad's on your webpage, when somone clicks on one of the ad's you get some money, the ad's are relevant to the content on your website, if your website is about painting cars you might get ad's about car paint or books on how to paint cars, google will scan your site and pick up on your content.

What will it cost me?

Nothing, the program is free.

Do I have to live in the USA to join?


What should I have before I apply for adsense?

A working website, not one that is under construction, good content, lets say if I search for how to paint a car, I want to get info on how to do just that and not go off on ten other things with little info and a lot of ad's, have at least three to five good articles and some useful links, If you only have one page right now with good content that should be ok, If you get turned down add some page's with content and apply again, remember to try to stick to one topic, that way when google scans your page the ad's will be relevant to your site topic.

How much money can I make?

It all depends on how much the advertiser pay's, It could be ten cents or ten dollars per click, the range is wide and pay's different on all topics, If you have a popular site and a lot of people are clicking the ad's you could make hundreds of dollars a day.

Are you ready?
