advertising on your blog
There is a range of steps you need to take before you start advertising on your blog, a basic guide is available to support you. All you need is just a website with the right configuration.
What is Google AdSense
Google AdSense is a platform that allows you to display ads on your website or blog. It’s very easy to use and runs without any extra effort, automatically.
These advertisements are managed, sorted and maintained by Google. They can generate revenue on a per-click or impression basis.
How it works
How to start
Well, there are a number of ways to start earning Google Adsense. I’m going to break it down into steps:
- Pick a name for the domain and register it
- Get Hosting Subscription
- Install your WordPress
- Sigup for Google Adsense
- Get the code, and add it to your WordPress
Now, let’s talk in detail about each of these steps.
There are hundreds of domain registrars, choose any of them to register your domain name.
Tip: Try to get a domain name that matches your blog content subject, for example, if your blog is about birthday gifts then you might need to think about registering a domain similar to a birthdaygiftblog. (com) (net) (a) (whatever).
Domain name price can start with 3$ per year.
There are a lot of web hosting providers, all you need to do is choose an appropriate package that you can afford, and then link your domain to your new hosting provider’s name server.
Tip: Find a provider that provides SSD storage, and a good reputation is a must..
Modern hosting providers offer you Cpanel hosting, which includes Softaculous, which allows you to focus on using apps instead of spending time installing them. It’s a matter of a few clicks to get your WordPress installed.
Tip: You can start building your new WordPress layout and style using a free, easy-to-use plugin called Elementer.
4.Sign up for AdSense
If you use Gmail or any other Google service, you already have one to create an AdSense account. When you create your AdSense account, you can create a Google account if you don’t.
Tip: You may be aware of those choices that are grayed out in your new AdSense account. This is because you need to do a few tasks before you can activate your account in full.
You can easily handle AdSense with WordPress and there are two plugins out of the box. The first is (Google site kit) that automatically generates your code, and enables you to use only a few clicks to connect your WordPress and AdSense with the account.
The second plugin is the Ad inserter plugin, it is just a wonderful WordPress Adsense plugin, which allows you to select where to show ads.
Tip: The ads.txt file must be created and stored in your website’s root directory. After your site has been accepted by the Google AdSense team, you will be given the file’s content.
You are now eligible for your AdSense account, write some good articles, and start earning.
