To make money with websites, you need three things, good content, some way of bringing trafic to your site and some way of generating revenue. One way to generat revenue is with advertising (using products like Google adsense).


Google Adsense: Currently the undisputed champion of pay per click advertising for publishers (web site owners). If you have a website you want to income from (monetize) then simply sign up for adsense, paste the html code they give you and advertising will appear on you site. When someone clicks on an ad, you get paid.


BE WARNED – Adsense uses the pay per click model. This can be very tempting to new users to click on the ads appearing on their site(s) – or ask someone to. NEVER CLICK ON YOUR OWN ADS, NOR ASK OTHER TO DO SO. Google works very hard to curtail click fraud on Adsense. If you try organize clicks to be made, you will get banned for life (without any chance of appeal – Google is VERY strict with Adsense). If you plan on trying to cheat Google Adsense, then bookmark this page and come back for some Google Adsense alternatives after you get caught (because, make no mistake, you will get caught).

Either way, its a good alternative or compliment to Google Adsense on your site.
