If you want to profit using AdSense you need to have a website. The good news is that it has never been easier to build a website than it is today. Choosing a domain name will probably be the most challenging thing for you, as all the good names seem to be gone.
Building the content for you site can be a lot of fun if you are passionate about your topic. If this is your first site, I recommend choosing a topic that you like and are very passionate about so that you find it easy to write content and articles.
Choosing A Domain Name
Before you start building a website you will need to choose a domain name. This is not as easy as it once was. Good luck finding exactly what you want, but it can be done. There are a lot of websites out there that can help you brainstorm a good domain name. You simply type in the desired name, and if it is already taken it will spit back some closely related ideas for you to choose from. If you are still unable to find exactly what you want, you still have options. There are websites out there that buy up domain names and resell them. Chances are you will be able to find a good one on one of these sites. The bad news it that you will have to pay anywhere from $50 to $50,000 or more for them. But before you spend lots of money on a domain name, ask yourself if there is another way you can come up with a domain name for less money that will still get you extra traffic. Chances are if you brainstorm, you can come up with a better alternative than paying a lot for one.
Building a Website
Building a website has never been easier. There are several programs out there that can help you do this. It is helpful to know a little HTML and maybe a little CSS. If you don’t, not to worry, you can use something as simple as WordPress, which is free, to get your site up and running. WordPress is one of my favorites, as it is so easy to set up and there are a ton of plugins that you can use to help make your site search engine friendly. WordPress, being a blog posting platform enables you to add content easily as often as you like. The search engines love fresh content. Especially if you add it in a couple times a week.
If you decide that you do not want to create a site using a blogging platform and you don’t want to take the time to learn any HTML, you can always hire a freelancer to build the site for you. There are many sites that allow you to place a job up for bid to have a site built for you. Just make sure you check the feedback of the person before you choose the lowest bidder for your project.
The meat of the site, content! It is the content that you add to your site that is going to drive traffic and make you money. The ads that appear on your site will be determined by the content you display on your web pages. This is what makes making money with AdSense so easy. The ads are relevant to the content on your site. People click on these ads for just that reason, they are relevant to what they are looking for. As for coming up with content for your site, you can either write it yourself or hire a ghost writer to do this for you. You may want to start out writing the content yourself, and as you site revenue grows, pay someone to do this.
Making money with AdSense can be very exciting as you watch your income slowly grow. You can literally make money while you are sleeping. Finding a domain name that you are satisfied with may take a little doing, but with a bit of thought you can still come up with some good domain names that are available. Creating the website is probably one of the easiest steps and can be fun. There are a ton of programs out there that make this step easy for you. Once you have your website built, you just need to write up content for you site and you are ready to go. Just remember that the more traffic you can drive to your site, the more potential money you can make.
