How to Start Google Adsense
A very important element in the rapid adoption of AdSense is that it is already very easy for publishers to get ads on their site as quickly as possible.
Integrating AdSense on your site only takes a few minutes, and you can be on the road with one or more integrated AdSense ads.
The first thing you need to do is navigate to https://www.google.com/adsense and either apply or log in with your existing account and password. The following is a page that presents the Google AdSense Terms and Conditions that you must agree to continue.
You will be presented with a report page that you can use to get detailed status about how your AdSense ads do. This allows you to improve your site's content and layout to maximize your AdSense earnings.
At the top of your page, you also have a link to the setup section where you can generate code that needs to be inserted on your website to have an AdSense banner on your page.
You can use AdSense for text (word ads), use the search box or with referrals. Your choice between these choices depends on how the user will navigate your site.
Finally, there is a "My Account" tab that allows you to set details about your account, payment and tax information.
To add text ads to your site, go back to the "AdSense Configuration" tab and click the "AdSense for content" link. Make sure you have cookies enabled in your browser.
You can make choices between ad units and link units. The former contains text and / or images regarding a particular site for each unit, most with detailed explanations, the latter containing only links to certain types.
Of course, it's rather difficult to know the type you have to use so you might have to experiment well for a while before you decide.
You can also see an example of how the unit will look on the right side of your page. However, you can only use three ad units and one unit link on a particular page. This is believed to be a step that Google takes for quality control.
The next step is to choose the format you add and color. You can basically choose the color palette that you choose with Google offering several yourself if you don't have the time or expertise to make one. You can continue to see how the palette will look through the help example. One that works best in terms of appearance and income will vary with the appearance, feel and content of a website.
However, your ad format is limited to eleven format choices. There is an "Ad Format" link that will take you to a page that lets you see all of this even in action so you can decide which is best for your site. Sometimes the most annoying, does not work best but again, this can vary from site to website.
After you are done with customization, you can click "Continue" from the bottom of the page.
You can then copy it and paste it into your page directly. If you use dynamic pages, you must insert this code in your template so that it ensures that it will be displayed on every page of your website. Some advertisers choose not to display Adsense on every page, and this is understandable. An example of this is a company that has adsense, it may also have terms and conditions that will definitely provide legal resources that might be considered inappropriate.
What is then left for you to do is get content on your page (provided you don't have it already). Google AdSense crawlers will immediately visit your site, making sure that the ads displayed are relevant to the content of your site.
And you are all done. For this simple page, it must be a matter of a few minutes, which is precisely what makes AdSense the choice for so many. Although fast, mass appeal also makes the best. Through being the most popular, advertisers and publishers alike see Adsense and Adwords as their first choice.
