How to Use Google Stocks With Google Adsense!

Google currently has the most talked about stocks in the whole market. Everyone is puzzled of how it manages to have so many supporters worlwide. Actually it's quite easy to understand why google stocks seem to be doing quite well. First it's reliability has it's trustees knowing that this long term investment will pay off, it's a widely know fact that Google Stocks have virtually no chance of ever havingno value. The company is a rock solid investment. Even though it may falter at times that doesn't last for long.

Now then let's discuss how you too can jump on this money train. First of course you need to know the basics of stock; how the dividends, common stocks, and preferred stocks work.

Here is an introduction to stocks: First know that holdiong a stock gives you a piece of the said company. You have the right to vote on members of the board of directors and other important matters before the company. Also if the company distributes profits you are entitled to a piece. The good thing about this is that if and when the company which you hold stock in happens to lose all it's money or is to pay more money than it has; you the holder of the stocks are not liable in any way. But that's a different story when it comes to private stocks.

First you have to know that there are two types of stocks: Common Stock and Preferred Stocks. Common Stocks are the ones held by the public and gives you rights to dividends and voting too.

Preferred Stocks has less rights than Common Stocks but there is one major difference that's the dividends. Companies with Preferred stocks tend to give out regular dividends like a monthly payout. Also it has first dibs on the dividends over the COmmon Stocks.

That's about it for basics for more info consult Wikipedia Stock Info.

Now then on to the main topics Google Stocks are commonly referred to as GOOG this means that if you want to find it's current stocks info you call it GOOG instead of google. Many websites out have currently updated prices and quotes (predictions on where the stock is heading) but Google itself has it's own reguraly updated webpage located here:

If you'd like to purchase GOOG Stocks go ahead and head on to my favorite online stock trading market the famous New York Stock Exchange located here. Though I recommend you get a stock broker to do most of your stock investments. They are professinals trained on this kind of thing and also happen to have investment advice upon which companies may bring most profit. But if you are interested in Google Stocks only, what can I tell you? Go jump into the money train.

You may be wondering why I decided to post this on a Google Adsense blog, my reason is the fact that Google Adsense has continually helped rise Google's stocks sales. The fact that Google Adsense itself might be a good investment in the long run, I thought webmasters would want to know other ways to earn money form the Google Adsense and Google Stocks connection. As you keep yourself updated with current info on any Google Adsense developments you should know which ones are either going to drag Google down or pull it ahead. Therefore giving you an advantage in knowing which way Google Stocks is headed.

Thank You

After years of experience as webmaster I decided to help my fellow webmasters by writing everything I've learned starting with google adsense. More about Google Stocks here.

Is AdSense Really Dead?

There is a lot of talk lately about "The Death of AdSense. What is the real truth? Should we all take AdSense off our sites? Is there something better to use in it's place? What am I going to do with all these AdSense sites I have?

No need to panic!

AdSense isn't dead or even terminally ill. Read on to see the logic in this whole argument and then you can breathe a sigh of relief.

The Truth About AdSense:

First of all, do you think Google makes any money from AdSense? Of course they do. They make huge amounts of money. Is it logical to think they are going to let that revenue source just die off? No, it's not. Google isn't going to change the program to the point where it will not be profitable for you.

They are always making changes in all their programs, to make surfing the net better for everyone. If they take the profit out of AdSense, they are going to lose a bundle. They know this and they aren't going to cut that income source for themselves, therefore they aren't going to cut it off for you either.

Next, Google is enhancing the AdSense program as you read this. They just came out with a way for you to add video to your site through AdSense. If this was a dying program would Google keep improving it? Hmmm....

And Finally, the man who started this whole AdSense scare. Who is he? Where did he come from? Is he really making a killing on his alternative suggestion or is he planning on making a killing by selling you his plan. Think about that for a minute. He comes out of the clear blue claiming to be an internet millionaire yet if you read his ebook, he tells how he manages to pay his rent every month.

If you were a millionaire, would you be paying rent?!?

So the moral of this story is, AdSense is not dead. AdSense is still a great way to make a passive income on the internet. The more sites you have, the quicker you will see those big checks from Google. Don't sweat the gossip, get back to work and keep building AdSense sites.

Google AdSense Is Not Dead - It's Actually Still Alive and Kicking

A report came out recently claiming that AdSense is dead! I found this hard to believe since my personal AdSense business is actually gaining ground each month and making me more and more money.

After reading this report I figured out what it is all about and found several discrepancies in the authors reasoning. The report claims that the author’s own AdSense income has been falling sharply in recent months. However, if you read the report closely you will notice several flaws in the author’s thinking. The first major flaw is that the author was building AdSense sites with auto generation software. Well, there’s the reason for his decline in AdSense earnings! Anyone who builds AdSense sites knows that Google is on a mission to rid the internet of spam and junk sites that add no value to the internet. They are de indexing auto generation sites at a feverish pave. Auto generated sites simply do not work anymore (when was the last time you heard of someone using Traffic Equalizer?).

Many people have brought this point up and the author’s response was that the quality of your site only affects the traffic you receive and not the amount of money you receive per click from AdSense. This is a valid statement; however, it is only a half truth. Junk sites won’t affect you click value but they will affect your click through rate. When a visitor lands on an auto generated site the first thing they do is hit the “back button” on their web browser. Therefore, junk sites are losing traffic and have low click through rates, a recipe for disaster when it comes to making money with Google AdSense and a quick way to have your AdSense earnings tumble!

Let’s say you receive 5000 visitors a month and you are earning $1.00 per click from AdSense. If you build quality sites and your click through rate is 10% you will receive 500 clicks and earn around $500. Now, let’s imagine that you build junk sites and you still receive the same 5000 visitors but now your click through rate drops to 2%. You will receive only 100 clicks and make $100. Your income just dropped $400, which is most likely what happened to the author of this report.

The author of this report was technically right that AdSense is dead…if you are building junk sites. If you want to build a solid AdSense business that makes you money month after month, you need to create quality websites with unique content. Don’t rely on making spam sites that do nothing for your visitor and will get de indexed by Google. Build your business on solid ground and not quick sand.

How To Make Money From Google Adsense

Google is a big name on the Internet these days and if you have a website of any sort you can make money with their help. You don't have to have the top ranked website on the Internet; you don't have to concern yourself with search engine optimization, you simply have to have a website on which you wouldn't mind placing a few small advertisements. Making money with Google Adsense is so simple that the opportunity is hard to pass up! Any type of website will work well with the Google Adsense program, which makes it all the more attractive.

While most of us know Google to be the biggest search engine on the Internet, the company actually makes most of its money and is known to others for its Adwords program. This program allows website owners to advertise on Google's search result pages. The Adsense program basically is the other side of the Adwords program and allows Google to advertise on your website and they pay you a portion of their revenue in return. Google is all about making money, and because they have so many companies willing to pay them for advertising space, they don't mind sharing a bit of it with you for the extra space on the Internet!

Adsense is a good idea because it's easy, requires very little of you, and will at least pay for your site each year. In fact, some people start using Adsense to cover their website expenses and find that they can earn a lot more, depending on their website and the traffic that they receive. Others just want to supplement what they are already making online, and this is also possible with Google Adsense. With just one website you can begin earning money tomorrow with Google Adsense.

The way this works is that every time a visitor on your website clicks on the advertisement, the company being advertised has to pay Google. This may be just 25 cents per click but over the course of a week, a month, or a year this nominal amount can really add up. While you will not see the 25 cents for each click, you may see a few cents of that. It doesn't seem like much, but when there are Google Adsense advertisements on all of your web pages the change can really add up fast. In fact, the program is so popular and lucrative that many people add pages to their existing websites just so that they can take on more Google Adsense advertisements.

What's great about the program is that you won't just have any old advertisement on your website. Google is very smart and knows that every website has a target audience, so the advertisements are relevant to the information, topic, service, or product that you offer on your website. This not only makes the advertisement seem as though it is not out of place, but also increases the likelihood that your visitors will click on it, earning both you and Google a few pennies with each click.

Google Adsense is a great program, but one tip is not to expect to become a millionaire with it. Many people boast how much money they make through the Adsense program and while you can earn a relatively good amount for a free program it is not likely that you will be able to quit your job at the end of the month! Another tip is to really think about how many pages you are willing to advertise on and how much space you can dedicate to Google advertisements. While the program is worth your time and space, many Internet users are wise to the program and feel as though web space could be used for more information, products, and services and don't like the idea that you want them to click on advertisements that will pay you. Granted, most web surfers will not avoid a website just because it has Google advertisements, but it's important not to take away from the user experience of your website to provide this advertising opportunity.

Google Adsense has had a bit of negative feedback, but with so many people using the program it comes as no surprise that some people are unhappy with it! Many people complain that their website features public service advertisements for extended periods of time, which do not pay. It is generally understood that if Google cannot determine what sort of advertisement to place on your webpage that they may place a public service announcement in place of a paid advertisement. The problem is that many website owners report that there will be a relevant ad and then all of a sudden it will be an unpaid advertisement. You could see how this would be very irritating, but for a free service you have to be willing to be a little bit flexible.

Overall Google Adsense is a very good program. Obviously, the more traffic you get to your website the more money you can make with the program. If you can take some time to work with Google and let them know what your website is all about you will find that your website has very relevant advertisements placed on it. Like all programs, Google Adsense has issues from time to time, but for the small investment in the way of space it is generally a great program to be involved with!

Adsense - Playing By The Rules

By: Gary Smith

AdSense has become a major part of many Internet marketers income portfolios. It's fast and easy and of course very lucrative if you take the time to learn how to implement it effectively.

Like most income streams though, there are always people out there who do their best to take advantage of the system in any way they can to maximize their earnings. Exploiting systems by taking advantage of the shortcomings or bugs in the system is generally a short term deal. As soon as the supplier finds out that they are either not getting or not providing value for their service, they will very quickly close any 'holes' and fix the bugs. When you take into account the millions of dollars that are generated from Adsense ads each month, it goes without saying that Google will go to great lengths to ensure that their advertisers are getting good value for their advertising dollar.

With this in mind, if you intend to monetize your site with Adsense and want this to be a long term income strategy you need to be familiar with the terms and conditions. Lets strip away some of the 'legalese' and take a look at some of the policies, requirements and also the type of activity that may cause your account to be terminated.

* Up to three ad units may be displayed on each Web site page - that's pretty clear. You can have up to 3 ad units, regardless of size or placement, on each of your web pages.

* A maximum of two Google AdSense for search boxes may be placed on a page - again, that's easy enough to understand. The search boxes are the ones that allow you or your visitors to search the Internet or your web site using a Google Search box on your web page.

* A single link unit may be placed on each Web site page, in addition to the ad units and search boxes - the link units are a different format to standard adsense units. They provide just the link with no URL or additional text. You can have one of these in addition to your adsense ads and search boxes.

* A single referral button per product may be placed on a page - Google will pay you for referrals, but you are allowed only one referral link on each web page.

Those policies spell out what you are allowed to do. Now lets look at things you aren't allowed to do. From an advertisers point of view, the quality of the page their advertisement is displayed on will bear a relation to the quality of the visitors who actually click on this page. This is one of the reasons you are not permitted to place ad units on pages that have no other content. The rule of thumb is that you should only be placing ad units on pages that contain some sort of valuable or useful content.

The reality is that it is in your interest to provide useful content. The better your content is, the more likely it is that it will appear higher in the search engines. This in turn brings you more traffic and the traffic you get is mostly people who are interested in the subject matter of your site. These also happen to be the people who are most likely to click on your ads simply because they have come to your web site looking for information and/or products.

Other things that you need to avoid in order to protect your account include:

* Never place ad units on pornographic, racist or hate related sites.

* Never place ad units on error, registration or 'thank you' pages. Remember, the advertisers want their ads on useful, relevant pages. Common sense should tell you that these pages are neither relevant or useful for advertising. It's a bit like placing an ad inside a cabinet. Nobody goes there looking for information or products!

* Never click on any of the ads on your website. This is considered fraud (for obvious reasons). If you do accidentally click on an ad, make sure you contact Google support immediately and let them know which page and the date and approximate time.

* Never place ads on pages that you display in Traffic or surfing/hit exchanges. This is mentioned in the policies and is not permitted.

I hope this information has been useful. Adsense is a great way to earn some extra income, but you need to make the effort to ensure you are within the terms and conditions. At the end of the day, common sense should give you a good indication whether you are doing the right thing with Adsense ads. If in doubt, check the programme policies at
