Google adense is a hot online earning program which helps us make some regular income after putting efforts initially. People earn from few dollars to thousand dollars per month, it depends upon the niche they are targeting. So by selecting right niche and right keyword, you can earn good money per month. You will not earn much from adsense if doing any of below things:
- Your website is targeting high competitive keywords.
- Targeting niche where there is no or very less advertisers.
- Have a website which targets Internet marketing/SEO/Website promotion.
I will explain each of them one by one.
Your website is targeting high competitive keywords – So even though pay per click is high, if you are targeting high competitive keywords, you would not earn much from adsense. Because targeting high competitive keywords mean bad search engine position (even though you market) this causes low organic traffic and hence low earning. So you need to check competition before targeting any keyword. This can be done as follows:
Analyse the results come out from Google using query Intitle:“your keyword” (bold text). If the results are under few hundred, that good otherwise you are targeting high competitive keyword and earning from adsense will be very low. Also in some cases even though this query shows fewer results, don’t feel it’s less competitive, you need to analyse first 10 websites and check out their no. of back links, quality of these back links, age of the website, popularity. This information is required to know how competitive the keyword is. It is not easy to beat old websites having good no. of quality back links. So if it is like that, I would suggest you to chose other keyword.
Targeting niche where there is no or very less advertisers – In some cases, even though keyword competition is low and pay per click is higher and also website is topping Google position, you don’t’ earn much why? It’s because you have chosen wrong keyword for which no advertisers are available. So don’t get excited when you find any low competitive keyword, you have to analyse other things now.
Have a website targeting Internet marketing/SEO/Website promotion – you would not earn much if you are having article posting (unless it’s really good), internet marketing or web promotion site because most of the visitors at these kind of websites are itself an Internet marketer (adsense site owners) they know you will get paid for each clicks, so they don’t click Google ads.
Targeting right keyword is the key to success.
