What Is AdSense? How to Make Money from AdSense?

Are you looking to make money online? If yes, AdSense can be a great source to generate a passive income.

Let us first understand AdSense. It is a Cost-Per-Click (CPC) advertising program that helps the users or blog owners to put up some HTML on their website that shows ads related to the content of the website.

For example, if you own a travel website, you would put up relevant ads related to hotels or flights, etc. If you are a regular blogger with good traffic on your website, AdSense is a great way for you to make money.

You can install the ad code, and then the AdSense spiders will check out your website and understand the theme of your website. After that, they check out their Ad inventory and put up related ads next to every article that you publish on your website. It works because someone reading an article on travel destinations is more likely to buy a hotel deal or flight tickets.
