What is Google AdSense?
Google AdSense is the Ad. Unit of Google Company. In simple words, if you have a website or YouTube video, you can tell google that I have this website or video and I want to give an Ad.

Now, how people will know about it? It is true we can give ad. on TV but that will cost much. I can set Bill Board, give ad. in radio, give ad. In Newspapers or give ad. in google.

On hearing these two parties, google will give my ad. on such website and when people will visit those websites or videos and see or click my ad., I will pay some money to the owner of that site for each click. In short, this is Google AdSense.

How much will I be able to earn?
A large number of Bangladeshi internet marketers still (2016) have been earning 2000 to 5000 dollars per month from Google AdSense. One significant benefit of Google AdSense income is that it is a Passive income. If a site once gets a stable footing, there is not much work to do. There is an arithmetic calculation about how much one can earn from Google AdSense. If you work according to this arithmetical calculation, you will be able to touch 100 dollars per day. Before going to the arithmetic, you will have to understand some familiar terms.
CTR: It means Click through Rate. It calculates how many people visits your website and how many of them clicks, is calculated with this. If 500 people visit your website page, and 5 of them clicks it, your CTR will be 1%.
CPC: Cost per Click. It is how much you are going to get per click. It widely varies from industry to industry. For that solar car, I might have to pay much to Google as a company whereas an ordinary company may have to pay much less amount.
CPM: Cost per Impression. It is the accounts of how much you are earning per 100 people. It is calculated in the same way as CTR.
Now, as you have already understood the basic terms, let us see how we can touch the 100 dollar line per day.
Now let’s suppose that your CTR is 1%. Of 100 persons, only one person clicks on an ad. It has been counted at the minimal. Usually, the figure is higher. With this, we take that your CPC is 25 cents. It has also been calculated at the minimum. It also will be much higher.
Now, if you want to earn 100 dollars per day, your page view, according to this account will have to be 40,000. Now, the 40,000-page view does not mean that you will need 40,000 visitors because it is not likely that only one visitor will visit only one page of your site. So, let us suppose that one visitor will visit at least two pages (minimum). So you need to have 20,000 visitors.
Now, let us take that your websites have 250 articles. It sounds somewhat a significant figure but if you continue posting even you will fail to understand yourself when the number has risen to 250.
If only 80 persons read an article per day, you will have 20,000 visitors per day. These 20,000 visitors will also read other articles on your site besides the particular item for which they have come to visit. So, your actual income will be much more. In this way, there must be a minimum of 400 clicks from these 20,000 visitors. And from these 400 clicks, it is very easily possible to earn 5000 dollars in AdSense.
Now the matter is not so that only clicks will create your earning. AdSense also gives a portion, although subtle, for seeing the ad. We suppose that AdSense will pay you 2 dollars per 1000 visitors. Then additional 40 dollars are also coming per day making an extra earning of 1200 dollars per month.
If calculated in this way, 75,000 dollars per year coming from one of your websites.
Now, will you use in your website AdSense only? If the website becomes bigger, you can sell eBook on your site, can launch your topic related courses, can do affiliated marketing and this list has no end. Again, who says that you will have to have only one website? Double your income by making another site.
Yes, all these are possible. But we do not want to go through hardship or think that it is not feasible on our part. In fact, it does not happen actually in most times.
From today (when you are viewing this article), if you start working from today, can be able to reach this goal within one year if you worked properly without any protest of any kind.
How you will get Google AdSense Account
It is not a matter of hardship to get Google AdSense account nor is there any act of magic. But you have to advance step by step in a correct method for this. In that case, the possibilities of getting AdSense account is higher. These are described below step by step for you.
Use .com,.org,.net,.info domain
Many people think that it is possible to get Google AdSense by free domain. But to get AdSense quickly, you must use the top level domain. At one time it was possible to get AdSense only by applying, making a site in Blog spot. But it is not feasible now. So, if you want to Google AdSense account quickly, it is the best way to use.com,.org,.net,.info extension as top level domain.
Use WordPress as CMS
We know that WordPress is the most popular CMS nowadays. As for a reason, WordPress has easy availability, means to make an excellent website without coding, search engine friendly site structure and many more things. If you make the website with WordPress, you will get some plugins which will help you to decorate your website quickly. Besides, for content management of the site, WordPress is incomparable. As a precondition of getting AdSense account is a good and search engine friendly website, so good results are expected from the use of WordPress.
Apply for AdSense with a new Gmail account
When you apply for Google AdSense account, use a fresh and new Google account, and that must be mobile verified. A separate email should be applied for Google AdSense. If you do this, there will be less possibility of getting your important Google AdSense email lost among the unwanted emails of your inbox.
Use the services of Google.
Use all available services of Google for your account and website. Of these, the most important one is to complete google plus account. Try to complete 100% profile of your Google Plus account in the email by which you will apply to Google AdSense. It helps makes your identity credible to Google. Also, complete Google author verification of your websites. Besides, add google webmaster tools and google analytics service on your site. In that case, your site will also be counted as the authority site.
Write more than 30 contents
Content is the life of a website. At the same time, it is the primary source of income of the advertisers. So, if you want to Google AdSense account without any trouble, you will have to start a website with at least 30 articles, and it will be better if each content has a minimum of 1500 words.
At first completely Index your site in Google
Most of us commit mistakes in this part. We think that we will post 20 contents on the first day and will apply to Google the next day which is an entirely wrong conception. Because the advertisers will never want to give ad. to your website if it was not indexed in Google and where the advertisers are not interested, Google also will not be interested in giving you AdSense account. So, you should continue publishing all your contents for 15 to 30 days and then give 7-10 days more for indexing of all the pages and then apply to Google for AdSense.
Do not apply if you do not get the minimum visitors
Traffic or Visitors are the principal sources of income. Even if your website is filled up with high-quality contents but there are no visitors, then your contents will be valueless. Starting from Google, all advertisers will show their unwillingness to give ad. to your websites without visitors. So, you should apply for Google AdSense when a minimum of 20 visitors visits your websites every day. If the visitors are from the search engine, it is better. If those visitors come as the social referral that also will have no problem. But attention should be on the quality of the traffic.
Optimize the On-page SEO properly
The search engine always likes on-page optimization. Because a website becomes search engine friendly only when its on-page optimization has been done in a proper manner. So, you should always go on trying that full on-page optimization is done on your website.
Create some useful pages
This part is vital for Google AdSense. To get Google account quickly, you must create contact us, about us, privacy and policy, DMCA tabs. Because if your website does not contain these pages, nobody will be able to contract you directly or know about you. And also if there is no privacy and policy of any kind, anybody can take legal action against your website. So, to get Google AdSense, you must create these pages.
SEO Technical aspects cannot to excluded
For further strengthening the authority of the website, create a sitemap.XML, robots.txt files. These files will help quick indexing of your website and will control the search bot. Besides, do internal linking of the website where interlinking is necessary. Side by side use copyright free image and keep the site clean as far as possible. Using minimal color for Google AdSense will be prudent.
Make the website with business Niche
If you want to get a Google AdSense account quickly and without any trouble, open a website with a business topic. Because perhaps you know that we try to find profitable keyword through keyword research. There we mainly aim at working with a keyword which has higher CPC (Cost per click). If you give a look, you will observe that the keywords which have business links have higher CPC. For example, in ‘’Free mobile phone ringtone” keyword CPC is $0.01 to maximum $1.00.But in “buy iPhone 5 32 GB” keyword CPC is $1.00 to maximum $10.00 or more. Because there are no such business relations with free ringtone keyword and so there the number of advertisers is tiny. But ‘’buy iPhone 5” keyword has splendid business relationships, because 60-70 percent of those who search by writing this keyword, search for buying iPhone. So, there the competition of the advertisers is more. So, there being a greater number of advertisers when they see the new website has opened a website on their targeted keyword, they show more interest to give ad.in that site. For this reason, when you will open any business related website, you will see that you have got the AdSense Account easily and quickly. Because you have created opportunities for the advertisers to promote their product.
How to protect your much-coveted Google AdSense Account
With much hardship, working day and night and after long waiting, at last, you have got the Google AdSense account. You are extremely delighted. So, like telling the examination result, you informed your friend circle that you had got AdSense from this site. Days were passing well. Income is also not so bad. But suddenly you saw the account is suspended. All your earned dollars have vanished. You could not understand how all these happened because you have not done anything that has caused banning of the account. Later on checking the email, you saw that your account had been banned for giving excessive clicks. At that time there was nothing to do about this.
Such incidents have been happening every day with somebody or else. Many submit reports, but nobody gets back that account. Finally have to say that Google AdSense is wrong.
Google AdSense is not bad. Only our awareness can always keep Google AdSense account safe.
Although we do not commit this mistake frequently, yet we may do it sometimes unmindfully. Never shared your publisher ID with anybody nor showed it online directly. Because there are many such click bombing software’s which if Publisher ID is given, can create Ad. Code automatically and start clicking. Due to this, your AdSense account has 100% possibility of being banned.
Of course, you have to share the link to your site, and that is for visitor’s backlinks and many more matters. But in spite of that, you should keep yourself away from sharing your Facebook profile because there you are known to all and there may be the presence of some wicked people in that Facebook friends list. If mischief arose in their minds, clicks after clicks would start. Besides, many of us have problems. We cannot do well to ourselves nor can we see the well-being of others. For this reason, if anybody sees that there is AdSense on a national website, he begins clicking. So, as far as possible, try not to share the link to your money site with anybody. Even if you got some article written by a freelancer, never tell him in which website you are going to publish them, and thus you will see that your tension about this has come down considerably.
Keep Whois info of domain confidential
Somebody may take many of your information from the Whois of the domain. It is also possible to take out the information of all domains of your server from only one the information of your domain. So, if you open the website of Google AdSense, you must keep the Whois of domain secret. From where you buy the domain, if you inquire a little you will get the information from there how to take Whois guard services. Some domain providers give Whois guard free for one year.
Check your Email daily
Among the AdSense publisher who do not have this habit remain in high risk with their account. Because if there is any problem of any kind for the first time, Google will send a warning letter through email. They will give you a timeline to settle the matter. If you fail to resolve the issue within that timescale, your account is 100% sure to get a ban. So, log in your Google AdSense account at least once a day and see if there is any fraud click. From which country more visitors are coming, how is CPC and whether there is any inconsistency? On checking email, If you find any warning, try to settle it immediately.
From the experience of my initial time, I can say that I was detached from the internet only for four days and in the meantime, one of my 300 dollar accounts got banned. I was then new and did not understand much. The account got banned for using copyright image. Google informed me through email that if I can remove it within next three days, there will be no problem. But I failed to do that and for that reason had to be banned in cash. So, you must keep vigilance on this.
Identify fraud click
If you see that the number of fraud click is increasing on your website, you can report to Google’s in their invalid click contact form. But for that, you will need sufficient and detailed information such as IP number of the person who clicked when clicked, etc. But you will not get this information from the dashboard of Google AdSense nor even from google analytics. But there is also ways.
Use StatCounter – Free Invisible Web Tracker on you website. From this stat site you can easily see which IP clicked in which Ad. format, how many times clicked and when clicked. You can track everything from here. So, this is the best way to identify fraud clicks.
When you observe that clicks repeatedly given in your advertisement from the same IP, then send a report to Google by filling Invalid Clicks Contact Form.
Then Google will examine everything, and if they find that you have not done this yourself, they will keep your account in the Google’s safe zone.
Keep your website copyrighted content free
Never publish other people’s hard-earned articles, photos, videos to your blog in your name. If you do mean such work, then you can be confident that if they report googling AdSense, your account will be banned. So, if you ever deem it essential to keep some others content on your website, then you must mention the source and link. Say no to paid traffic and click exchange.
Thinking of running Google AdSense by bringing paid traffic? Or exchange your AdSense click with others, then you may be certain that your account will not be alive for long. These two things are emphasized strongly in their policy. Google always want that their clients do not suffer loss and may remain happy. For this reason, Google is very strict on this matter.
Use plugin to stop fraud click
Those who have created the website in WordPress, there is an excellent plugin for them to stop fraud click. You can quickly stop fraud click by using AdSense Click-Fraud Monitoring Plugin. If this plugin is used, if anybody clicks your Ad more than 2-3 times, he will not be able to see the ad. on your site which means even if he wishes, he will not be able to click your ad. anymore. Due to this invalid clicks will reduce considerably in your account. On the other hand, StatCounter is the most powerful Google AdSense click fraud detection software.
If you can follow the above things regularly, it is hoped that your account will remain in the safe zone forever. So awareness is more important than all these matters. If you keep your eyes and ears open, you will be able to identify the problem quickly and solve them too.
