AdSense is a contextual advertisement program from Google. This is in fact one of the best paying programs that is present online. If you are a person who has a web site or even a blog of your own, then you will be able to make a lot of money by monetizing your site with the Google AdSense program.

There are various requirements for the Google AdSense program and one of it is that you should have your own site, whether a blog or a web site. The site that you have should also have a lot of rich content in it. The content should be unique and also should be in good English so that the user who reaches your site through the search engine benefits from landing on your site.

Method of making money:

1. Apply for the AdSense program: Once your site has adequate and relevant content in place, you can apply for the AdSense program. The whole process of application might take up to about 6 weeks for the application to be assessed and the reply to reach you. You should make sure that you are able to receive payments in your name and should have a valid address.

2. Drive traffic to your site: Once your application has been accepted by the AdSense program, you can start adding the advertisements to your site by adding the code given by AdSense into your site’s HTML code. Once this is done, the final step in the process of making money from your site with AdSense is to start driving traffic to your site. This can be done by making your site to become search engine optimized. You can add content to your site on a regular basis and this will help lead visitors to your site via the search engines. Also use methods like link building and also blog commenting and forum posting that have links in them. All these will help to lead the traffic to your site.

3. Users click on advertisements: The advertisements are all present on your site. These advertisements that Google has posted on your site are very relevant to the content in your site. This will make the users click on these advertisements and the advertiser will pay Google for each of the clicks generated and in turn Google will pay you for displaying the advertisements on your site.

You should take care that you do not click on your own advertisements as this will disqualify you from further participation in the program. Google AdSense is a great way to make money online in 2010.
