Google Adsense: Adding Google Adsense ads in your blog doesn’t require anything except a quality blog & a Paypal account. One thing is also important that it shouldn’t be an adult blog as google prohibits publishing ads on adult blogs. When you request for Google Adsense ads then first your site is reviewed by google engineers and after approval an ad code is provided to you which you need to embed in your blog. Once that ‘ad code’ is added in your blog, you can view that particular ad in your blog. You can make money with Adsense ads in two ways
- Pay Per Click: If you choose PPC (Pay Per Click) ads then you will be paid for the number of times your ad is clicked by the user. The amount is paid to you is decided by the advertiser. It heavily depends on the type of product they want to advertise.
- Pay Per Impression: This type of ads get you paid on the basis of the number of times that ad is viewed by the users. It is ultimately related to the traffic of your website, the more traffic you get, the more amount will be paid to you.

- Ad Placement: it really matters that where you are placing your ad in a blog. It can be placed in three way either you can place it in between the title and content or between the content or just below the entire blog but before comment option. But ads placement should be near the content so that user can easily click on it while reading a blog.
- Ad Customization: In order to make your ad more appealing you can customize your ad. Choosing the colours for an ad that matches the theme of your blog can really make it look better.
