How To Make Money With Google – The Beginner's Guide

Introduction

In 2005, I came across a forum thread where people were talking about making money with Google, eBay, and Amazon. During that time period I also met a guy who made all of his money promoting eBay. I had no idea how any of it worked but I was really interested. I didn't love my job and was looking for an out.

…fast forward to 2010.

In the last five years I have successfully made the transition from knowing absolutely nothing to making a lot of money with Google. This article will share some insights into how this is possible.

Google Does NOT Hire People To Work From Home

When I first started hearing about making money with Google, I assumed that they hired people to work from home. As far as I know, this isn't the case. In the last five years, I have never met a person who works from home, for Google. However, I know a lot of people who are making money by promoting Google's programs. I also know a lot of people who make a lot of money because they use Google as a source of traffic to their websites.

How To Get Started

In order to start making money with these methods, you really need to have your own website. Fortunately, this isn't difficult at all. I have a free e-book that will walk you through the process of setting up a site. Having your own site is cheap and somewhat easy. If you want to learn how to set up your own site, you can learn by downloading the e-book here (it also tells the story of exactly how I went from making nothing to more than $15,000 per month).  Update: a newer, more up to date eBook is here.

How The Money Is Actually Made

Google's money is made by producing clicks for advertisers. This happens in two places:

  1. On Google's search engine – Google.com
  2. On other people's websites (your site can be one of these)

The second program is called Google Adsense. As part of the program, Google allows people who have websites to place ads on their website's pages. When their visitors click on an ad, Google gets paid. Google shares that revenue with the website owner.

This means that you can start a website, place Google ads on it, and get paid when your visitors click on an ad. On average, you can count on around 5% of your website's visitors to click on an ad. The amount you get paid varies but is usually somewhere between $0.10 and $1.00 per click. The science of getting higher paying clicks is also covered in my free e-book.

How To Get Visitors To Your Website

The visitors that I get on my websites come from a variety of sources. One of my biggest sources of traffic is Google.com. I put articles on my websites that I believe will match up with what people are searching for. This allows my websites to show up in Google's search engine. People click on my site and visit. Around 5% of them click on an ad and I get paid.

In addition to reading the ebook, you should really consider becoming one of the 1,400+ people who are members of The Keyword Academy Pro. TKA Pro is our members area. It's where you'll find my entire method broken down with hours of video instruction, a comprehensive written guide for implementation, supporting software for keyword research and link building, and an extremely supportive community. It really does have the goods, and you can take a completely free and unrestricted 30 day trial to see what it's all about.

  1. Your ebook sure doesn’t work for me. Won’t download or even open on either IE or Firefox.

  2. Thanks for the eBook!
    Solid information and very well made.

  3. Derek Landis

    I read through the entire eBook, but the videos don’t work. Any thoughts?

  4. William

    Videos don’t work for me either – not in browser, nor in 2 different standalone PDF readers.

    Great, great content, though Court. Very well done. I’m sure this will be a big hit if your sort out the videos.

  5. I really like your ebook. I’m in the number 8 spot on Google for my website using your keyword ideas and still working on it! That site sells a product.

    This year though I’m going to try your program out with a blog or two or more. I’m so excited! I’ve share your ebook with my work at home moms group and now we are having a meeting next week, laptops on hand to begin to work your system.

    Thanks so much!

  6. I make money with google using adsense. Google adsense allows people to put ads on their website’s or blog. When the visitors visit your site when they click on an ad, Google paid us owners. It earns me around $400 up to $500 a month with adsense. Now in order for us to earn that kind of amount we need a lot of traffics whether search results traffic, direct traffic or referral traffics. how do we do it we optimize our site to rank well is serps. more traffic more money.

  7. nice article, but google actually does pay people to work from home, indirectly, but working for google none-the-less.

  10. Hey lovely Information. It is much of use Soon you Apply it. Much effective. Mahalo.

  11. What happens when too many affiliates promote products and make quick money, google flexes his muscles and starts to slap adwords accounts.
    I wonder what will happen when adsense gets more popular and will google flex his muscles again, I would love to hear your opinion about this….

  12. Nice website….may we add it to our make money blog for a review?

  13. Well, Google is a way of making money and yes I do make money adsense but I don’t concentrate much on it. Since one need to create good content and also use the search engines to get lots of natural traffic so I don’t do like that. I rather promote my own products with adsense just a supplement source of passive income.

  31. Based on many reference, You can earn 97% of money from Google AdSense for Content, compared with 3% of the AdSense for search. In other words, for every $ 3.00 you can earn with AdSense for search, may decide that you deserve to $ 97.00 from AdSense for content. In my estimation, your rough estimate for 1 unique visitor per day is $6.39 per year.

Trying to make money without any sort of job experience is even harder. A lot of books is just ineffective, although this post surprisingly taught me a lot. Great Info! :)
