The Basics On How TO Start Making Money With Adsense
by: Charles Stevens

Adsense is considered as one of the most powerful tool in a website publisher’s arsenal. It enables a person to monetize their sites easily. If used properly, it can generate a very large and healthy income for them. However if you are not using them rightly and just maximizing the income you squeeze from it, you are actually leaving a lot of money on the table. Something all people hate doing.

How you can start earning money with Adsense can be done easily and quickly. You will be amazed at the results you will be getting in such a short period of time.

Start by writing some quality content articles which are also keyword incorporated. There are a lot of people given the gift of being good with words. Writing comes easy for them. Why not make it work in such a way that you will be earning some extra cash in the process.

There are actually three steps to put into mind before you begin writing your ads and having an effective Adsense.

Keyword search. Find some popular subjects, keywords or phrase. Select the ones which you think has more people clicking through. This is actually a keyword selector and suggestion tool that some sites are offering to those who are just their Adsense business.

Writing articles. Start writing original content with keywords from the topics that you have achieved in your search. Take note that search engines are taking pride in the quality of their articles and what you will be writing should keep up with their demands.

Quality content site. Build a quality content site incorporated with Adsense ads that is targeting the subject and keywords of your articles and websites. This is where all that you’ve done initially will go to and this is also where they will prove their worth to you.

The proper positioning of your ads should be done with care. Try to position your ads where surfers are most likely to click on them. According to research, the one place that surfers look first when they visit a certain site is the top left. The reason behind this is not known. Maybe it is because some of the most useful search engine results are at the top of all other rankings. So visitors tend to look in that same place when browsing through other sites.

Some of those who are just starting at this business may think they are doing pretty well already and thinking that their clickthrough rates and CPM figures are quite healthy. However, there are more techniques and styles to generate more clicks to double your earnings. By knowing these techniques and working them to your advantage, you will realize that you will be getting three times more than other people who have been previously doing what they are doing.

Finally, Adsense has some excellent tracking statistics that allows webmasters and publishers to track their results across a number of site on a site by site, page by page, or any other basis you wanted. You should be aware oft his capability and make the most of it because it is one powerful tool that will help you find out which ads are performing best. This way, you can fine tune your Adsense ads and focus more on the ones being visited the most rather than those who are being ignored.

Another thing you should know. Banners and skyscrapers are dead. Ask the experts. So better forget about banners and skyscrapers. Surfers universally ignore these kinds of ad formats. The reason behind this is that they are recognized as an advert and advert are rarely of any interest that’s why people ignore them.

To really start making money with Adsense, you should have a definite focus on what you wanted to achieve and how you will go about achieving them. As with any other kind of business ventures, time is needed coupled with patience.

Do not just ignore your site and your Adsense once you have finished accomplishing them. Spare some time, even an hour, making adjustments to the Adsense ads on your sites to quickly trigger your Adsense income.

Give it a try and you would not regret having gotten into Adsense in the first place.

Charles Stevens - I am a retiring const worker. Love all sorts of information.


After most people investigate and realize how beneficial a residual income can be, they immediately jump into the thousands of opportunities that are available to them on the internet.

That can be a big mistake. You can end up losing a lot of money depending upon the opportunity or opportunities you choose to build a residual income. You should consider a few things before embarking on your quest.

1. You should only concentrate on 1 opportunity at a time. Just promoting one opportunity can be a drain on your capital reserves. You must advertise to build any type of residual income.

Joining, maintaining, and promoting your opportunity will in most cases cost you hundreds of dollars.......and you should not expext to make that money back for at least 6 months or a year.

2. Reason number 1 is why most people fail in building a residual income. They either run out of money or patience, not realizing it takes time to build any type of residual income that is secure enough to retire on.

3. It is my opinoin that everyone should consider how they will market their opportunity. The so called heavy hitters in the industry use a "funded proposal" as a means to build a residual income. In other words they use "INdirect Marketing", to fuel their empires. They will sell a low cost product on let's say, You don't have to Lose Money Building a Residual Income". Their goal is to break even or make a little money. They then "Backend" their opportunity to these prospects. This way it costs them nothing to promote their business, and they can maintain a steady growth of their business withOUT Losing any Money!

The methods by which we use to contact each other, especially in internet marketing activities continue to undergo dramatic transformation. In the not to distant past (only a couple of years ago!) we kept in touch with customers – existing or potential new ones, using the telephone, fax machines, direct mail marketing and even in-person meetings. Today, people expect more frequent updates, new information, and the latest of everything. So much so that it is literally impossible to keep up with this dizzying pace and certainly not on a continuing or ongoing basis with any consistency. Thankfully, blogging has come to the rescue. Setting up a blog on your web site - and having an associated RSS feed - means you can keep in constant touch with your clients and potential customers. Plus you don't have to email them and they can get your latest news without having to visit your web site.

So how does this all work? A blog is really a fancy name for a web page that gets updated regularly. It's nothing special. There are several methods of writing 'blogs', but they are nothing more than computer programs which allow you to easily update a web page. Far and away the easiest way to start a blog is with a popular blog website. One example is called

However, for keeping in touch with your customers, RSS is the key. RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. What this means is that your blog can be automatically delivered to people who want to read it - you don't have to send it to them and neither do they have to come and collect it. All they need is the address of your RSS Feed and their RSS Newsreader can do the job for them. There are several RSS readers available and new web browsers incorporate the ability to read RSS feeds and keep them updated.

Whenever you add new content to your blog, the RSS Feed automatically gets updated in everyone's Reader program or web browser. That means you are guaranteed to be able to keep in touch with clients and prospects. You don't have to do anything other than produce the content. Equally, you don't face the problems of email filters and anti-spam programs blocking your email. Furthermore, people tend to read RSS Feeds because they have subscribed to them whereas they tend to ignore non urgent emails.

After a small amount of basic research and reading, you will quickly see, there are numerous advantages to Blogs and RSS Feeds. One of the biggest reasons is that search engines love them. This is because blogs provide fresh and new content - precisely the thing that searchers are looking for. Hence the search engines are actively pushing blogs higher up the search engine ranking. What this means to internet marketers is that if you don't have a blog for your business, you are potentially reducing your chances of a high search engine ranking. You need a blog nowadays to get noticed by the search engines.

For all the reasons mentioned above (and many, many more), blogging is essential. Not only does it improve your web presence, it also means you can keep in touch with clients and prospects more easily. All the marketing research you can find will tell you that regular contact with your customers is a vital component in retaining existing clients, as well as gaining new business. Don’t put it off any longer; it is time to get your blog going---today!

Make money at home and you will keep more of what you earn because you will not have a commute (except to the coffee pot), you will get to write-off part of your living expenses as business expenses (pay less in taxes) and it will be easier to plan your work around your life instead of the other way around. Make money at home now.

There is no real good reason to go into an office any more, the technology is more than ready to allow for an effective process of working at home. Of course you may need to leave the house from time to time to complete business related tasks, or for the occasional meeting, but now that travel time and travel cost (gas, car insurance, food) becomes a write-off too. There are legitimate home based businesses that offer great business opportunity.

If you choose to start a business, as opposed to working for someone else, you will make more money at home. The typical employee gets paid 1/3, or less of what they make for the company they work for (if the company is profitable that is), as the company has to provide an office, benefits and make a profit too. Think about this, you could effectively work 1/3 as hard and make the same money, or work just as hard and make three times the money, the choice is yours to make.

Regardless, decide to make money at home and you will be ahead in the process of making money and your life will be much more enjoyable too.

Because YOU can triple your income.

Affiliate Programs

Why You Ought to Promote Residual Affiliate Programs

Are you a webmaster in need of reliable income? Or are you

planning to set up an online concern but you still don't have any

product to sell? If so, affiliate marketing may be the best

answer for your problems. With affiliate marketing, you won't

need to be anxious about the products you have to sell. All you

need to maintain is a website with adequate contents that are

related to the products of an established online company offering

affiliate programs. By becoming a member of the program, or by

becoming an affiliate, you can start earning a certain amount of

money right away!

Affiliate marketing is some sort of business relationship

established between a vendor and his affiliates. In affiliate

marketing, an affiliate agrees to direct some traffic to a

merchant's website. If that traffic is converted into some kind

of activity, like a visitor purchasing a product on the

merchant's website or a visitor becoming a lead for the company,

the affiliate who directed the traffic will be compensated.

Compensation may take the configuration of either a percentage

sales commission for the sales generated or a fixed fee

prearranged upon the application of the affiliate to the

merchant's affiliate program.

Promising a lot of advantages both for the merchants and the

affiliates, affiliate marketing has become one of the most

popular online marketing methods at the moment. In fact, almost

every merchant or retailer site today offers an affiliate program

that any one can join. Most retailers would prevail on people to

become affiliates or members of their program by promising

prodigious benefits like hefty commissions, lifetime commissions,

click through incomes and a lot of other benefits. But would all

these affiliate programs bring off the selfsame benefits?

Most affiliate programs would pay you, as an affiliate, a onetime

commission for every sale or lead you brought to the merchant's

website. Commissions for this kind of affiliate programs are

customarily large, ranging from 15% to a high of around 60% or

even 75% . Other affiliate programs would pay you a fixed fee for

every click through or bit of traffic you send to the merchant's

site. Programs like this often pay a smaller fee for every click

through, usually not getting any larger than fifty cents. The

good thing about this kind of program, nevertheless, is that the

visitor doesn't have to purchase anything in order for the

affiliate to get compensated.

Another type of affiliate program is the residual income

affiliate program. Residual affiliate programs as a rule pay only

a small percentage of sales commission for every sale directed by

the affiliate to the merchant's site. This commission often comes

only in the range of 10% to 20% sales commission. Because of

this, many people ignore residual affiliate program and would

rather opt for the high rewarding onetime commission affiliate

program. Are these people making a faux pas, or are they making

the right decision?

We can't tell, for sure, whether or not people are making a

misstep by choosing a high paying onetime commission affiliate

program. But we can definitely say that they are making a big

mistake if they ignore residual affiliate programs altogether.

Residual affiliate programs would doubtless pay at a lower rate,

but merchants offering such kind of programs generally pay you

predictable and continuous commissions for a single affiliate

initiated sale! That means, that for the same amount of trouble

you made in promoting a specific affiliate program, you get paid

only one time in a onetime commission program, and a habitual and

ongoing commission for a residual program!

So, are the advantage of promoting residual affiliate programs

clearer to you now? Or are they still vague? If they are still

hazy, then let's make them a bit clearer with this illustration.

Suppose there are two online merchants both offering web hosting

services on their sites. The first retailer offers a onetime

commission sort of affiliate program that pays $80 for every

single affiliate initiated sale. The second merchant also offers

an affiliate program, but this time a residual affiliate program

that pays only $10 for every single affiliate initiated sale. As

an affiliate, we may get attracted at once to what the first

dealer is offering, as $80 is definitely a lot larger than $10.

But by thinking things over before in fact getting into them, one

may be able to see that the second merchant is offering us more

occasion to earn a larger amount of money.

Supposed you have directed traffic to the merchant and it is

converted into a sale, you'll get paid once by the first merchant

for the sale you have initiated. But with the second merchant,

you'll get paid monthly for as long as the customer you have

referred to the merchant continues to avail of the web hosting

service. That means that for the same effort of getting one

customer to subscribe to the merchant's service, you get paid

monthly in residual affiliate programs while you only get paid

once in a onetime commission type affiliate programs.

So, are residual affiliate programs worth promoting?

Categorically yes, because you potentially get more money from

these types of affiliate programs in the long run! And would

residual affiliate programs work best for you? Maybe, maybe not.

It is not really for me to say. But with the benefits that

residual affiliate marketing can provide, it would really be

shortsighted to ignore such programs.

The Secrets Of Making Money With Adsense
By: David Watson

Everyone is searching for the online secrets to making money, and many people will tell you that the easiest way to make money online with the Google Adsense.

With Google Adsense, you don't have the problem of dealing with customers, dealing with sales staff, or dealing with customer support. AND, many people are earning significant amounts every month with Google Adsense.

So, What are the secrets of earning money from Google Adsense?

Essentially, there are no real secrets - it's all just common sense.

If you are able to create a simple website, then you are capable of earning money from Google Adsense. You just need to apply a few common sense tips to your website building process, and you can maximize your potential income from Google Adsense.

So, what sort of tips are we talking about?

The tips can be broken down into four main areas:-

1. Ad placement and design
2. Identification of niche markets
3. Volume
4. Traffic

Let?s discuss each one briefly.

Ad placement and design - The best position for your ads is within the top section of the page. You should change the coloring of the ads to blend in with your website. You will get best results by using blue for the title of the ad so that it looks like a normal link, and use black for both the text and the URL. Make sure that the ads do not have borders around them, so that they look as much like a normal part of your webpage as is possible.

Identification of niche markets - Everyone hears about the keywords which produce clicks for $40 and $50 each, and many people attempt to build web sites which will attract adverts for these keywords. However is very difficult to attract visitors who will produce clicks for these keywords, so you a much better off spending time to identify markets where there are not many competing web sites, but where the value of the clicks would make it profitable for you.

Volume - By volume I mean the number at all pages that you have indexed in the various search engines. Simple mathematics will tell you that if you only have 20 pages which indexed you are unlikely to make as much as if you have 20,000 pages indexed. This does not mean that you need to build sites with 20,000 pages as an alternative you could build 100 sites with 200 pages each. Notice, also that word ?indexed?. It does you no good if you have websites on your server which are not indexed in any of the search engines ? if no-one can find your sites, you are unlikely to get clicks on your Google Adsense ads.

The people who are learning significant amounts of money with Google Adsense have many web sites. Most of them use software tools to produce their websites because producing many websites by hand is just too time-consuming. A great number of the tools currently on the market, produce junk websites that give no real benefit to the visitor. You will be more successful with a software tool which produces a quality website that will provide a benefit to the visitor. Newer tools on the market, such as my own Website Article Wizard, will produce quality content filled websites quickly and easily, which will be as good, if not better, than hand-created sites.

Traffic - No matter how many web sites you have you'll earn nothing from Google ad sense if there is no traffic coming to your web sites. With no visitors, you have no one who will click on your ads, and, without clicks, you will not earn anything. This means that in addition to building your web sites filled with content, you will need to spend some time getting links to the web sites so that the web sites will achieve rankings in the search engines.

If you follow these simple procedures, you will be able to build web sites that will earn income from Google Adsense. Some of these procedures are time consuming, and there are many tools which can help you to speed up either the web site creation and the link building process, but there is nothing stopping you doing all these procedures manually if you are a tight budget.

Everything that I have told you is just common sense, and that?s the real secret to earning money with Google Adsense - you only need apply common sense and effort to be successful.

6 Steps To Adsense Domination
by: Keith Baxter

When you make your living online, you realize the need for multiple streams of income.

One of the easiest and most lucrative ways to generate a secondary income, which also happens to be passive, is via Google’s Adsense program.

I’m sure you’ve read the claims of a few individuals generating five figure monthly incomes from Adsense. For many of you, I’m sure you are wondering why you aren’t making this same income yourself.

Well, wonder no more. If you follow my simple six step system, you will be well on your way to healthy Adsense profits within three months.

Are you ready? It’s now time to pay attention.

Step 1 – Preparation.

The key to making money with Adsense is all about numbers. BIG numbers!

Sure, there are a few people making serious money with less than ten sites, but these are the exception.

Your goal will be twenty-four sites in three months. That’s just TWO sites per week!

In order to accomplish this, I recommend one of the many available page generation tools available today.

Step 2 – Determine Your Markets.

In order to maximize Adsense income with only twenty-four sites, you must know which markets are paying well.

To break this down even further, you need to know which keywords within those markets are paying the most.

Step 3 – Register you domains.

Once you’ve identified and chosen your markets, you must register domains appropriate to those markets. For example, if your market is ‘Cabbage Patch Dolls’, a domain such as would be appropriate.

Step 4 – Create your site.

Using your favorite page generation software and keyword list, it’s time to develop your site. There are several key points to bear in mind when you develop these specifically for Adsense.

Format – Always use the large 336x280 large rectangle.
Border – Match the same color as your background.
Background color - Border – Match the same color as your background.
Link = "0000CC"
Color-url = "999999"
Color-text = "333333"
Position – Far left or center and just above the page fold (Top 25% of site)
Step 5 – Verify and track your site

Visit your site and make sure all links work and that the sites appear to your satisfaction. You should also check out the ads Google is displaying. Are they targeted to your primary high paying keyword? If not, recreate your site using your high paying keyword in a higher density throughout your site.

Make sure you track your Adsense format, position, and traffic with a tracking system specifically designed for Adsense. Once you know your stats, you can adjust for maximum clickthroughs and higher revenues.

Step 6 – Get your site listed in the search engines.

This is simple… no tricks involved. Simply rent links to your site. A PR7 or PR8 link will do the job.

While I’ve simplified the process here, you are now armed with enough information and resources to make some serious money with Adsense.

Good Content Is King For Adsense Sites
by: Kevin Anderson

Google has fast become the major player in the Search Engine arena and its success is brought upon by its many innovations in the Internet. Today, Google is undoubtedly the biggest search engine used by millions upon millions of people everyday, day in and day out. Many ecommerce sites fight for the top position in every search done in Google because they know many people rely upon their search results.

That is why when Google came out with Adsense, many have quickly jumped in on the opportunity to be a part of this amazing affiliate program. Many website owners utilized Adsense to boost their revenues.

The beauty of Adsense is that they can be installed in a site with minimum difficulty. They can also be customized so that they can blend with the site itself. They are relatively easy to install and Google has ensured that they won’t mess up with the program. Adsense can be customized as if they were originally part of the site.

Also, with Adsense, Google utilizes content filters that offer refined technology when it comes to serving ads to your adsense site. Many words have double meanings, sometimes even more. A search for such a word can be frustrating for the searcher when it comes out along with a different product or market. Google ensures that their technology can grasp the distinction so you can get more targeted ads on your site based on its content.

Content plays a major role for your Adsense site. Good content will keep you on the top of the list of search results and also be the one to be clicked on. For website owners, a good content ensures that there will be more adsense clicks done, the more clicks that are made, the more Adsense earnings will be realized.

Having a well thought of content keeps you ahead of the pack in Adsense because this is where it attracts the search engine spider as well as the interest and the eye of your website visitors.

Properly used keywords and contents put a certain ad in the pole position which in turn would generate more clicks. For the webmaster, this means more revenue since Adsense generates revenue by “per click” basis while for advertisers this means more traffic and more sales.

Many webmasters and advertisers dedicate a lot of time on making good contents. Having a good content on your Adsense site encourages people to click on the ads. Doing a good research is necessary to ensure that your content generates the most number of clicks. Finding the right keyword and content construction plus the maximum and minimum cost per click is essential to create a balance and profit for both webmaster and advertiser.

Invest in a good keyword finder so that your content will be very useful as well as profitable for your Adsense site. Having content with the right keywords will make your Adsense site a very profitable one. See the money and the profits pour in. Do not settle for content that will do nothing for you, Adsense is fast gaining popularity and it may soon be a crowded market. Arm yourself with good content for your Adsense site to make it a venture that could spell more income for your site.

Making Money In Adsense In 90 DaysNot Pt 1
By: Gary Hollins

Contrary to popular belief, a great majority of Adsense websites don't make a lot of money, even though much time and effort goes in to building niche sites, finding traffic for them, and earnest striving to supply great content.

The sad truth is, according to some accounts, 1 in 1300 sites geared toward Adsense will actually make any money.

But what makes those money-making Adsense sites different from the others, and what make those sites earn up to 200-500% more than other Adsense sites on average?

We'll take a elementary beginners' look at some of the factors that make good Adsense sites stand out from bad ones. We'll start from the beginning - the idea process for a site.

You have an idea for a site. It's your passion. It's your love. But, the question lingers in the back of your mind?

"Can I make money with this idea?"

The answer is yes, you probably can. But before you do, the stars have to be aligned, sort to speak. Many before you have rushed in blind with a idea, and a scrap of a plan, only to lose valuable time and money, when with a little patience and research, they could have done much better.

It's not enough to have a passion or love of a topic. In fact, many site owners that make money from Adsense build sites that make money with only a small interest in the actual niche topic itself.

In short, you need a combination of things to make a great niche site. We'll talk about one of them here.


As in any business or market, timing is everything.

If you find an Adsense niche market, you need to know one thing before you start: is it a niche that has already run its course?

Or is it a niche that is still not hot enough to parlay on?

Internet marketers say that for a niche to be legitimate, it needs to have at least 25,000 search engine searches attributed to it monthly. Anything less is a waste of time and energy, no matter how much an ad pays per click.

A great research tool is a free Google Top 500 keyword list, generated every two weeks from . It's available here: .

To determine correct timing, take a while, and look at the front page content of the first 20 sites that come up in Google's search. Are the sites the same, or close to being the same?

If you find that most of them are saying the same thing, and you find at least a 10 to 30 sites with that same type of content, you have found, in all probability, an oversaturated market.

But some niches have sub niches which are used by different sites, and finding a sub niche can make your site stand out in the crowd. A wedding site, for instance, could have tips on what to wear, a bulletin board, registry links, wedding vows, etc. Some of these sites could concentrate of one more than the other, yet still pull in the correct Adsense niche ads, and traffic because of how they design, word and place their content.

Next time, I'll give you some quick tips on how to deal with the competion, including how to deal with competition in your niche market.

Till then, keep building!

Ebook Review AdSense Confessions How to Earn Google AdSense Income
By: Robin Henry

When you load a site into your browser and see small advertisement blocks here and there with "Ads by Google" appearing nearby, you probably know that when you click on them, someone receives a credit for payment under Google's AdSense program. AdSense is a pay-per-click (PPC) scheme that benefits marketers, buyers and the webmasters who display advertisements on their sites. By bringing together a buyer looking for specific products or services (by entering a term or terms in a search engine), sellers of those products and services and encouraging webmasters to provide the medium by which this happens (their sites), everyone in the equation benefits. It's a truly win-win situation and a brilliant concept.

Because I use AdSense advertisements on my site, but have not yet optimised my income from them, I have been researching ways to do so. I knew that some people were making quite reasonable supplementary incomes from Google AdSense and that it has the potential to add more significantly to my income if I could find out how it's done. Like everyone else, I want a bigger share of the pie.

During my research I found Codrut Turcann's ebook, "AdSense Confessions" which promises to tell you ... How 9 Average People, Not Gurus, Cracked The Code To AdSense Income Boosting And How You Can Copy Their Money-Making Tactics! Plus... Discover How You Can Quickly Catapult Your AdSense Earnings By 450% Or More Using A Powerful, No-Fail Marketing Arsenal.

What's in this ebook?

"AdSense Confessions" consists of 101 pages detailing the success stories of nine people who have, to varying degrees, mastered AdSense sufficiently to earn regular incomes. Each from a different perspective tells his or her story about how they came to AdSense, tested, retested and eventually mastered AdSense to realise a greater income. One or two are still working on improvements to the AdSense aspects of their businesses to earn even greaterlevels of income.

As everyone knows, duplicating the models successfully used by others is a shortcut to success ... medical practitioners use it daily, so do marketers. There is every reason to believe that if you follow the proven methods used by the nine people whose stories are told in this ebook, you will have a similar degree of success. Interestingly, the nine contributors do not only discuss AdSense, they also discuss matters such as search engine optimization, keywords, web design, link management etc, all of which is good advice and makes this ebook even more useful. Evidence of earnings is provided as are numbers of examples of sites with AdSense adverts showing successful placement of AdSense ads.

Although most of the content confirms what I already know, for someone new to Internet marketing, web design or using Google AdSense, Codrut's ebook will save them a lot of time and effort in getting to the income earning stage.

Is it value for money?

The price for "AdSense Secrets" is $69.97 USD and it is downloaded almost immediately. Included in that price are the following bonuses:

Ebook, "101 Quick Tips to Increase AdSense Income in 30 Days"
FREE Profit-Pulling AdSense Site Critique and One-On-One Support By E-mail - Anytime You Need Help or Have An AdSense-Related Problem!
"AdSense Profit Shortcuts" - Monthly eLetter
A mystery bonus (value not known)

Value for money is a personal thing depending on so many variables that I can't answer that question for you. What I can say is that I find $69.97 quite a steep price (especially given the Australian exchange rate which knocks me about). However, if you can use the bonuses, especially bonus two of a free AdSense critique, it could represent value for money. The free critique and one-on-one support could be worth thousands ... if you make sure you use it.

Also, there are numbers of links within the text that lead to free utility programs etc that add value to your purchase.

And the Negatives?

In my opinion the only negatives are that the ebook isn't as professionally presented as it could be (given the price) and that the downloading process is convoluted. Having said that, if you are looking for content and don't care if the format and layout is ordinary, then presentation of the ebook won't matter. As for the downloading, it involves completing a subscription box and sending an email from a post-payment page to retrieve a link to another page from which the downloads can be made. But before the final download step, one has to confirm the email details. All of this could be prevented if the download page presented immediately after purchase.


If you want to learn how to establish or increase an AdSense PPC stream of income, this book certainly delivers the goods and will give you a good start.

There are dozens of things you can do today to generate income almost immediately. Add to that the bonuses, especially the one-on-one support and you will be well on your way to joining those of us who earn income from AdSense for doing nothing but placing links on our sites.

I've already begun to improve some of my AdSense strategies and will be monitoring income increase throughout the next three months at which time I'll write an article detailing my findings. Watch this space!

Affiliate Marketing: 3 Steps to Free Targeted Traffic!
by: Robin Araoz

Have you ever tried to promote a website without traffic?

Sure, is sound like stupid question, but reality is that

Without traffic, you will not get visitors. And without visitors, you will not make money, sales, get subscribers, etc.

So, What good is a website without any traffic? And if the site is getting traffic, what good is it if it is not targeted traffic?

There are many ways to drive traffic to your site, both free and paid. But we are going to talk about the one you probably love the most: Free Targeted Traffic.

So, let us go back to 3 different free traffic systems available:

1) Search Engine Optimization
2) Surfing for traffic
3) Getting it passively

1) Search Engine Optimization (SEO):

SEO takes time and a lot of work. It works really great when you know how to do it, but if you go after this one, I recommend you to learn from 3 guys online, and believe me, they know what they are talking about, just go to google and search for:

Brad Fallon

Andy Jenkins

or, Brad Callen

I recommend you take a look for Brad Callen´s free seo guide, you will find it somewhere out there in cyberspace and it is called: "Search engine made easy".

2) Surfing for traffic

When you join sites that are surf for traffic sites, you have to look at other members' sites in order to earn advertising credits for your site to be displayed when another member is surfing.

The only problem with this is that although the traffic is free, it is not targeted.

Everyone who is a member only surfs for the credit and very rarely and y mean rarely even looks at the site, they just minimize their window on their PC and multi-task. So, the traffic in most cases is crap and worthless.

3) Getting it passively

Now, let us talk about the best way to get free targeted traffic. It is called Instant Buzz. Instant Buzz is a service that gives you advertising credits as you surf the web like you normally would.

What you do is download the toolbar for free, it only takes a minute. Then, you set up your ads in the members area. And bam, you ads are being displayed on other members' tool bars as they surf.

You can also put Instant Buzz ads in emails that you send to your friends. These are called mail space ads.

And your ad will get displayed in other members' emails. The last thing you can do is put a hyperspace ad on your website which will help you refer other members.

When you refer other members, you will also get a percentage of the credits they earn which will go towards your ad credits.

If someone likes your ad and is interested in what it says, then they click on it and end up on whatever site it was that you were promoting. Now that's targeted traffic! And it was free.

You decide what to use, and remember if it is free, well, why not?...

Affiliate Marketing Tried and True
By: Cathy Bryant

Creating a home business is never easy; however, marketing online using affiliate programs as a stream of income is one of the simplest as well as most economical ways to begin earning an income from home.

What is affiliate marketing? Simply put, it is when an online marketer promotes a company's products and receives a percentage of all sales that result from this promotion. The online marketer may have a website, blog, and/or mailing list that he or she can promote various products through.

Because the vast majority of affiliate programs are free to join, the costs associated with this type of online business are minimal. This is one of the reasons affiliate marketing has become so popular as an alternative to the more traditional type of home-based business.

Affiliate marketing has many other advantages for the work at home

entrepreneur as well. Because there are so many companies who now have an online presence, there is a plethora of industries from which to choose. The secret to affiliate marketing success is to uncover niche markets whose products are in demand and then promote to that particular market segment those companies whose products fill that demand. The cost of doing business online is so small compared to a brick-and-mortar business, an enterpreneur can built a series of niche websites promoting a variety of affiliate programs and using various online marketing techniques can soon develop streams of income from their sites - all done on a very economical level.

Best of all, once the initial work is done, most of the websites then become an almost automatic stream of income. Content does need to be added as well as updated, but once a website is up and running, the work at home entrepreneur is then free to explore and develop additional niche markets.

Each website then adds to his or her income stream on a regular basis.

There is a period of time before any income can be realized, but once profits from affiliate program marketing begin to flow, the secret to continued success from affiliate marketing is to increase the number of websites and related content so that the income is coming from several sources.

It takes time and effort to get an affiliate marketing business up and running, but the rewards are significant. Unlike many other internet business models that have come and gone, it is a way of earning an income online that has stood the test of time and continues to be profitable today.

Affiliate Marketing Secrets Revealed
By: Timothy Rohrer

Affiliate programs are a simple way to generate revenue. This is a system of revenue sharing between one site (the affiliate merchant) which features an ad or content designed to drive traffic to another site (the advertiser). The affiliate will receive a fee based on the amount of traffic generated. Having an affiliate program is a great way for a merchant site to increase its traffic and revenue, but it is also a great way for an average person to make money. Affiliates do not have to develop their won product, process orders, deal with shipping, etc. They simply find a reputable company that offers and affiliate program and sign up. Sounds easy, right? That is what a lot of people think, and it is also the reason why a lot of people try it and fail. In order to actually succeed and make a significant amount of money as an affiliate marketer, you have to work. Just like any other job, you need to put time and effort into it in order to see results. The first step is to find a great merchant. One mistake that a lot potential affiliates make is not researching the company thoroughly. Of course they all say that they are the best and most lucrative. It is up to the potential affiliate to do their diligence to make sure the company they choose has a good reputation and a good program to help its affiliates. Make sure the company offers a start-up manual at the very minimum. The next step is to build a website. This is where a lot of beginners run into problems. This becomes a giant hurdle for those that do not know how to build a website using html. There are web-building services available, but they can be costly. Even those who can use it still can have make mistakes. Some of the most common mistakes are: hosting at a free Web hosting service, poor content, websites that do not look professional, and failure to master the Search Engines. Finally, in order to be successful, you need to get people to see your website. In order to do this, you need to find ways to drive traffic to it. Some of the most important things to do are to make the content of their Web pages "attractive" to Search Engines; track how each page performs on the major Search Engines; and develop more than one way to drive traffic. Once you have done all of these things and are beginning to experience success as an affiliate marketer, you can just sit back and watch the money roll in, right? Wrong!!! You will always need to monitor your traffic and think of creative new ways to bring the traffic to your website. But, most importantly, if you ever want to be able to rely on affiliate marketing as a stable source of income, you need to diversify into other, complementary monetization models.

So You Want To Be An Affiliate Marketer
By: Jude Wright

If you're like 99% of the population, you have some interest that you are passionate about. Maybe it's travel, or sports or animals. If you have an interest like this, why not make some money from it? Create a website to showcase your interest, join some affiliate programs and add the links to your new website. Now, starting raking in the cash. Simple, right?

No, not really. When a new affiliate marketer comes to me for advice, I tell him or her it's not as easy as it sounds. Many will listen to my suggestions and then "go his own way" to creating banner farms. Sometimes pretty, but not very effective. My biggest piece of advice is "Don't create a website about pets and add affiliate banners like satellite tv or gambling or dating to it. It doesn't work!

Let's start by discussing what affiliate marketing really is:

Affiliate marketing is a partnership between a web merchant and one or more affiliates. Affiliates are paid commissions for referring others to the site - specifically for generating sales, leads or "clicks."

There are a lot of benefits to affiliate marketing. You don't have to deal with customers, worry about payment processing or find your own affiliates. But, do you have the patience it takes to build from the ground up? It takes knowing yourself. It takes time and it takes persistence. It takes having a strong desire to succeed. And it takes a little bit of luck. You're not going to become a millionaire overnight - sorry!

Again, what's your passion? What affiliate products can you find that will compliment your interests? Do those affiliate products actually sell? Do your homework! You must research your products thoroughly.

It's not easy to be a successful affiliate marketer. There's a lot you must learn. Once you get your website up, you need to know how to market your site effectively. You'll need thousands, even tens of thousands of visitors to see your affiliate products' "offers." Think big! Go for LOTS of sales - not just one! By the way, don't sell - PREsell! The real key to being successful with affiliate marketing is to develop a good content based website and weave your affiliate links into all your content.

Create a list - a newsletter. You must have a way to bring your website visitors back to your site. Once they leave, they won't be back without some incentive. Put your newsletter signup box on every page of your site because you never know what page your visitors will land on first.

Be creative. Think of ways to keep your visitors coming back. Perhaps with contests or polls. You might want to give away a "freebie" every once in a while. Write reports and articles. Keep your content fresh and new.

What do you think? Do you still want to be an affiliate marketer? Good, then get started, and, as the saying goes, "Keep on keepin' on."

Top 5 Affiliate Marketing Mistakes And How To Avoid Them
By: Ivan Hu

In order to help you avoid making some of the most common errors made by the affiliate program marketers, who are web based, we have collected those mistakes to make you aware of them. Many have learned these lessons, but through the hard way of struggling to make the sales that just never closed, the entire idea is about closing the sales!

1. Failure to understand that people scan information

An affiliate marketer?s failure to realize that the people visiting your website will read about thirty percent of the matter on your page is the sure number one error. Most people, particularly the highly intelligent, busy professionals, having the money to purchase the products that you have to offer, are generally too busy to study every word.

They are going to search for and focus on the bullet points, highlights, blurbs and pictures to decide if the information is good enough and if they should spend time on reading more. Do not fall into the same trap. Make landing page of your affiliate marketing such that all the major points seem to stand out and cannot go unnoticed by the person scanning the page.

2. Lack of success in offering bundled packages

It is human nature to want things for free. Let your prospect feel that they are getting more for what they are paying for, by adding free prospects to the product you are marketing, or free software to enhance the product, or just a free subscription to any newsletter. Do not just offer them your product and ask them to get away. Add a package to which no one can refuse!

3. Failure in following up

Out of every 100 people who come across a sales page on any particular affiliate marketing, one among them will surely purchase immediately. The remaining 99 would move to another page with no chance of returning back. To attract these people, use an autoresponder, to allow signing-up for free reports. So, even if 25% of them sign up for your free reports, it would mean that twenty four people will see in their inbox, your product through free reports. Now if 10% of them do buy your product, you get to have 3.4 sales every 100 visitors, instead of 1. And it is an extremely conservative estimate.

4. Flooding the inbox of the prospect

Everyone dislikes seeing 5-6 messages from a single marketer, on opening their inbox. That is a sure-shot way to land you into their e-mail blocking list! Instead contact them every few days, and then slowing down to just once a week, to even once in two weeks, between your contacts. Sales can be generated through persistence, so do not give up if you?re contact shy of sales closure.

5. Failure to construct sales of second tier

As an affiliate marketer, you can?t just make profits out of just your own sales. Anyone who joins the program, on the basis of your referral, is sure to join membership of your own downline, and in fact a small percentage of profit made by their own sales would also come trickling down to you. All people wish to have the largest possible downline. Also, do not forget that the ones joining under your downline can help in getting trickle-up profits.

Making Money With Only Affiliate Marketing
By: Richard Legg

Previously, when affiliate marketing deals were given to you, they were often too good to be true.

This is not the case anymore. You've probably heard the same things about affiliate marketing time and time again. The increasing number of affiliate programs, online or offline are all telling you they're better than everyone else.

Besides that, they will give you an initial impression that you do not have to do more than just place a banner or two to start earning more profits than you could ever imagine. This is not always the case. This may apply to some who have already built up a successful site and a name for themselves. But for most, affiliate marketing needs a little work and time.

Email can be an effective affiliate marketing instrument. If done correctly, that is.

Promotion by means of email is very rampant. If you want to use email for your affiliate marketing, you have to be sure that you stand by what you are offering and that you make yourself available anytime for any questions or queries.

It is said that adding an article to your email advertising works really well. Putting up a summary about your product or service that can instantly attract the attention of your readers.

This summary should contain a link to an article located on your site. By this, you get to promote your business. You also give your visitors a chance to check out other parts of your site.

The advantage to the advertiser is that they get highly targeted visitors to their site. These people may even become future buyers if ever they find the offers interesting and helpful.

Try to differ from the crowd. Be unique.

The many existing affiliate marketing programs made people blind to the sales and marketing pitch being presented. You cannot blame them. Imagine yourself being bombarded by these things everyday and you will feel the same.

Squeeze out your creative juices and give them something original enough to stop them from leaving and make them stay to read on. You can try and find a hosting company that can do the job well. Having a great one will make you more than comfortable to offer anything from small to big time deals.

Patience is the key in affiliate marketing.

Contact a certain company to negotiate an arrangement if you feel that you are confident enough to generate an amazing number of sales for them. If they seem not interested in what you are offering, do not give up yet. Be patient.

Take into account that these companies are bring approached everyday by affiliates only gives out promises. Most of them cannot deliver what they are saying; thus making company owners wary of which ones to choose.

You can always go the extra mile and implement other techniques in order to get more sales. Once you have done this, approach them again for your services. Chances are, they will be more than willing to get into your affiliate program this time around.

Keep in mind that most types of advertising do not give out results instantly. Putting up a banner for your affiliate marketing campaign and getting it off after a few days should not be done. You may think that they are not being effective or that they are not working. It takes time.

Some of the affiliate marketing strategies that have worked successfully for you may not work the same way on other campaigns. It is worth the try but do not expect for things to turn out exactly.

If you are having continuous problems with your affiliate program, get in touch with the company. If they are committed to their business, they will help you in every way possible on which ones work best. They probably have thousands of affiliates willing to teach you what works best.

Affiliate marketing can be exciting and depressing at the same time. The ups and downs you will encounter is never boring; it will always be a challenge

It all boils down to affiliate marketing being the survival of the best of the best, the smartest and the most patient. But those that win will be handsomely rewarded.

Basics of Affiliate Marketing
By: Matt Bacak

Whether you realize it or not, if you've been on the Internet today, you have encountered affiliate marketing. If you have ever ?clicked thru? one site to order something from another, the first site probably received a portion of the sale. For instance, independent booksellers have limited shelf space for books. But they can offer their customers an almost unlimited inventory of titles by affiliating with companies like Amazon or Powell's. The more orders, the bigger the affiliate percentage.

Visitors to your site are interested in lots of things that may or may not be related to your product. But when you know your customers well, it's simply a matter of affiliating yourself with sites that offer what they want. What you receive is just a small percentage of the sale, but it adds up, especially when you consider that all it costs you is a link on your web page. And usually, the more sales your affiliate makes from your ?click thru? traffic, the bigger your percentage will be.

The key to success in affiliate marketing is being able to track referred customers. As an affiliate manager, you want a system that reliably tracks what you want, with minimal effort on your part, and without affecting the performance of your site or server. Over the last few years a variety of technologies and strategies have been developed in an attempt to improve accuracy, convenience, and flexibility.

There are at least half a dozen methods, but by far the most preferred method is Cookie Tracking. It's popular because it makes tracking affiliate-referred sales so convenient, without negatively impacting your site. This system writes a small text file, called a ?cookie,? to a user's browser when they click on an affiliate link. When you are the referring affiliate, the cookie holds your ID, so that at the merchant's order page, you get credit for referring the sale. One drawback is that many computer users disable cookies, although most choose not to, since their favorite sites require them. One bonus is that the merchant can save the information, so that even if a customer buys long after clicking through your site, you still get credit for the sale.

Affiliate marketing, at its best, is a win-win scenario. It's an easy way to offer your customers more of what they want, while you benefit, both in terms of building goodwill and making money.

Affiliate Marketing Secrets They DonT Want You To Know About
By: Josh Green

Well, here it is folks, the three secrets every beginner must know before starting his or hers affiliate marketing home business: effort, time and money. Ok, I admit that despite the catchy title, I?m not really teaching you something you don?t already subconsciously know, but believe it or not, these simple rules of thumb are things that many novice webmasters often forget.

Let me elaborate. Despite what you may have heard, starting an affiliate marketing business takes a considerable amount of effort. If you?re not willing to keep up to date with the latest search engine optimization strategies, learn at the very least HTML and CSS basics or take some time and write quality content for your website, well I sincerely think you?re embarking in the wrong field.

Secondly, you will need to invest money if you wish to make money. Affiliate marketing is perhaps the easiest and cheapest home businesses to start, but you will inevitably have to invest in some books to refine your knowledge or pay for a good quality hosting company. Even though there are many free strategies you can use to maximize your site?s traffic, you will also have to invest money on good quality targeted advertising or paid inclusion in quality directories for example if you wish to increase your chances of success.

Finally, when investing your hard earned money in a project like this, you must be patient. The expression "patience is a virtue", is none more applicable then in the case of home internet businesses. Many claim to have made incredible amounts of money within a very short period of time. I don?t mean to sound pessimistic but these are either the luckiest people on the planet or what they are saying is simply not true.

The most important thing to understand about this type of business is that there is no magic recipe for success, because if there was, I wouldn?t be writing this article. I would be to busy rolling in all my money. You may find that some of the strategies you?ve read on the web or in books actually work in getting traffic to your website, but none of your visitors are actually buying anything. There are literally countless factors that come into play that will determine your level of success.

Without getting into the specifics and intricacies of affiliate marketing, I will try to point you in the right direction. First of all, an important aspect of affiliate marketing is the website itself. Like I said earlier, getting a hit on your website is one thing, but actually having that hit translate itself into a sale is a completely different thing. If your website doesn?t offer compelling content and simply relies on nice pictures, catchy slogans or cheesy testimonials, well I wouldn?t expect off the chart results. You might get the odd user to buy your product, but don?t expect him to come back. Just take a look at all the major corporate websites on the net: simple and easy to use design, fresh and informative content. That?s why most people go back to these websites. In layman?s terms, a professional looking website is a must, even if it only looks professional and you ended up designing and writing the content yourself. There are numerous templates or detailed tutorials available on the net that can help you design an efficient and professional looking website. There are also great article search engines where you can find free articles to use on your website.

The last thing I would like to elaborate on and probably the single best advice I can give any new webmaster willing to try his hand in such a competitive business is simply read. The more you learn, the better your chances are. You must study your competitors; understand your targeted audience, read any book that you can get your hands on; visit any website that can help you with your project, etc. Finally, apply the things you?ve learned even if it?s a relatively small venture. Unfortunately, there are many people out there who give up before they even get started, often because they realize that it takes a lot more work than they thought. But if you?re willing to push yourself and learn, you just might hit that home run.

Affiliate Marketing and Niche Websites A Match Made In Heaven
By: Haydn Matthews

In my previous article: Affiliate Marketing 101 - Understanding The Basic Concept Of Affiliate Marketing, I pointed out that Niche websites are far more likely to generate increase affiliate income, than more generic type sites. The reason for this is simple; niche markets create targeted visitors, and these targeted visitors are far more likely to be interested in related products and services, as part of the reason for their visit to you.

Niche marketing is not hard. Niche marketing involves concentrating your website on one particular area of knowledge or expertise, as opposed to trying to be all things to all people. By developing these types of niche websites you are far more likely to succeed, and even go on to successfully win the affiliate marketing game.

So How Do You Create A Niche Website?

1. Focus On A Specific Subject. The more knowledgeable you are about the subject yourself, the more confident your visitors will be when visiting you in search of information. I have often found through my own personal experience that those who have a passion about a subject are far more likely to reflect it in their subject matter, than those who do not. For example, I have 2 passions in life: sports betting, and internet marketing. I have been fortunate enough to have profited considerably from both, but by placing my passion on the net, I now have the capacity to share my knowledge and experience with others who have an interest in the same things - subsequently turning my passions into cash.

2. Relate Your Content to Complimentary Products and Services. Once your niche has been established you can begin to apply the principles of effective affiliate marketing with great success. Content is king, so by relating affiliate programs directly to your content you are then in an ideal position to capitalise. As an example: my website at is focused on the realm of sports betting and betting exchange trading. Everytime I discover a new article that relates directly to the site I publish it. Take a look for yourself at any article on and you will see how I apply the very principle of relating content to affiliate software, betting systems, etc that I promote with maximum effect. The result, lots of targeted traffic, who are directly interested in any or all of the products or services I promote through affiliate links. The affiliate cheques at the end of the month directly reflect the success of this method.

3. Build a Niche Directory. Everytime I come across a website that I think would be of interest to my visitors I place a link to it in my links directory without even asking for a link back. Now this goes against the grain of so call SEO experts, but it is a strategy that works well. Here's why: webmasters almost always look at their logs to see who has visited them and where they have come from. When they see a link to them from me they are more often than not curious as to what my site is all about, and subsequently click through to discover for themselves - gotcha! Another highly targeted visitor just came through the door - and my own stats reveal that these webmasters themselves are highly receptive to buying online, and they do!

An additional benefit of niche directories is that search engines love them. In the recent update Google is said to have placed higher significance to these directory structures. This has proven to be the case as far as I am concerned anyway.

4. Use Free Articles to Boost Your Content. I always scour the article directories for new articles that relate directly to my subject matter. These articles are a valuable source of content, and keywords; and used effectively they act as magnets that draw new visitors in and expose them to all the additional affiliate offerings provided in order to entice them to click-thru and buy.

One trick I have used with great success is to link articles on the same subject matter together to form a chain. This keeps visitor interest high and again exposes them to more opportunities to click-thru an affiliate link.

5. Effectively Use Google Adsense. Alot has been written on Google Adsense, and the great incomes that can be produced through strategic placement of ads in and around content. And I just want to say this: THEY ARE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT! By placing google ads in and around your content you are often turning visitors into cash, regardless of whether they buy anything from you or not. I remember when I struggled each month initially to produce the minimum amount required to generate a payout from Google simply because I was not making effective use of the system itself. By changing the placement and emphasis my income from Google has increased fiftyfold across all my sites. Incorporate google ads in and around your articles - let google take care of the relevancy, and serve alternative ads (you can state the alternative ads to display in the Google Adsense control panel) in the event that google does not serve up ads.

So in a nutshell: we now have our niche website, serving up content in the form of articles and news specifically related to our subject of interest (which of course we are highly passionate about!). We have also directly related our content to complimentary products and services through strategic placement of affiliate links - and implemented Adsense ads, as well as our own ads in the event that Google fails to deliver. We have also setup our niche directory, and placed relevant links (emphasis on 'relevant'), again directly related to our subject matter.

What Have We Done? We have created a niche website that will prove to be a money-spinner in time. I say 'time' because this is not a recipe for overnight success - rather, a plan for medium to long term financial security. Viewed in this manner you are sure to succeed.

Next Task? Develop another niche website and replicate the whole process again!

Affiliate Opportunity The Bad Credit Market
By: R Lawrence Anderson

If you are an affiliate, you will want to consider promoting programs catering to individuals with bad credit. Why? Because of the tremendous demand!

Millions of consumers have less than perfect credit. In addition, in 2004 nearly 1.6 million people in the United States filed for bankruptcy ? and that number is expected to increase in 2005, due to the new bankruptcy legislation that recently went into effect. In short, this is a HUGE market!

Okay, so we know there?s a market ? but what products or services are people with poor credit looking for?

Here are some popular categories: Auto loans, credit cards, home loans, refinancing, checking accounts, personal loans, and information products (e-books, membership sites, courses, etc).

If you look at the number of searches done for bad credit related loans and financing, you?ll find that a lot of people out there are looking for the ?right? lender to help them. Many of them know their local bank would probably turn them down in a second if they applied for a loan.

They need a lender that specializes in working with individuals with poor credit? or information that they can use to increase their credit score so they can qualify for an auto loan, home loan, credit card, etc. with their local bank. That?s where you come in!

As an affiliate you can direct them to various lenders and information products ? and get paid for it if the person signs up for the service, or purchases the information product, under your affiliate ID#!

So where do you find such services and information products to promote. There are a few ways:

1) Search Engines: Type ?affiliate directories? into your favorite search engine. Next visit the websites you find and click on the finance, credit or related categories. If you want to promote real estate related services (i.e., home loans) for people with poor credit, you could see if they have ?real estate? category.

2) ClickBank: Another ideal starting place is ClickBank. Approximately 10,000 vendors sell their digital products and services through ClickBank. In addition, there are over 100,000 ClickBank affiliates.

Once you?ve signed up for their affiliate program, visit their Marketplace ? you can go to the category ?Money & Employment? and then click on the ?Debt? link. It will provide you with a listing of all of the information products and services you can promote in the category.

3) Other Popular Affiliate Networks: In addition to ClickBank, other affiliate

networks you will want to consider signing up with are Commission Junction and LinkShare. To find more affiliate networks, simply type ?affiliate networks? into your favorite search engine.

4) Surfing the Net: Let?s say you come across a website offering a secured credit card which you?d like to promote. Look for a link (usually near the bottom or top of the website) that says ?affiliates? or ?make money?, or something similar. If there is none, email the site owner (they should have a ?contact us? link) and ask if they have an affiliate program.

Hopefully this article has given you some ideas on how you, as an affiliate, can cash in on the consumer credit trend and provide a valuable service at the same time ? matching individuals that have poor credit with the appropriate service or information product that will help them.
