How to monetize using Google Adsense?
In this section, I am going to talk about monetizing the WordPress website with google Adsense and it is one the most popular ways to monetize your website.
Adsense is based on cost per click ads (CPC), which means you earn money every time a user clicks on the ad on your website and the amount received depends on various factors.
Step by step explanation on how to monetize using Google Adsense
To get started the first thing you will need is a Google Adsense account. If you do not have one, you can use your existing Gmail id to create one.
Then you sign in to AdSense –>click on sites–>click add site–>enter the URL of your site–> connect your site to AdSense. To connect your site to AdSense copy and paste the code into the Html of your page between& tags. Click done and then google will mail you when it is connected. If you do not know where the& tags are then you can use an ad inserter plugin.
Once it is connected, go to my ads and then click on the new ad unit button.
This will take you to a new screen, where you will be asked to choose the ad type that you want to display on your website.
Next, you need to provide a name(for internal purposes, so name anything you want) for this ad unit and select the ad style, type, colors, etc.
Once you are done with specifying all the ad details, simply click on save and get code button.
A message will pop up “ad successfully created” and you will also see the ad code.
Copy your ad code and paste it in a notepad or sticky note on the desktop, you will need this later.
Now you decide where you want the ads to be shown on your website, usually its in the sidebar. You can add your Google Adsense in your sidebar by using WordPress widgets.
Go to appearance –> Widgets, drag and drop the “Custom HTML” widget to appropriate widget area and paste your Google AdSense code in there which you saved in notepad earlier.
Ads will start to appear and you are all set.
Never click on your own ads because google’s algorithm is smart and can find out if it is you.
How to monetize using Google Adsense?
To get started the first thing you will need is a Google Adsense account. If you do not have one, you can use your existing Gmail id to create one. You need to apply and get approved for a Google Adsense account.
Before you start: You can only have one AdSense account under the same payee name per AdSense’s Terms and Conditions. Duplicate AdSense accounts created through YouTube will not be approved and monetization will be disabled for the associated YouTube channel.
You can monetize more than one YouTube channel with the same AdSense account.
The YouTube Partner Program (YPP) gives creators greater access to YouTube resources and features which are as follows:
Access to YouTube’s
- Monetization features.
- Creator Support teams.
- Copyright Match Tool.
The main feature of the YPP is that once a channel meets the thresholds of the program, YouTube enables advertising on the channel and starts paying for the views on those ads. Whenever the ad is viewed or clicked, the advertisers pay YouTube, and YouTube, in turn, pays the video creator.
Minimum eligibility requirements to join
- You need to have 1,000+ subscribers on your YouTube channel.
- Your videos have generated 4,000+ Watch Time hours over the last 12 months.
- You comply with all of YouTube’s policies and guidelines.
- You have an AdSense account set up.
Everyone who meets the above threshold can apply for YPP.
How to apply for YouTube Partner Program?
You can ask to be notified when you reach the subscriber and public watch hour threshold. Once your channel meets the threshold, follow these instructions:
Sign in to YouTube.
In the top right, click your profile picture > YouTube Studio.
On the left menu > click Monetization.
If you’re under the threshold, click Notify me when I’m eligible to get an email when you’ve reached 1,000 subscribers and 4,000 watch hours over the past 12 months.
And if you meet the threshold, click Start on the “Review Partner Program terms” card. Once you’ve signed the term, YouTube will mark this step with a green “Done” sign on the “Review Partner Program terms” card.
How to connect Adsense account to YouTube Channel?
Make sure you only have 1 AdSense account. As part of the application process, you’ll need to connect an AdSense account to get paid.
Click Start on the “Sign up for Google AdSense” card.
If you already have an AdSense account, use the one that’s already approved. You can link as many of your channels as you want to a single AdSense account.
If you don’t have an AdSense account, you can create one by following the on-screen instructions.
Once you’ve connected your AdSense, YouTube will mark this step with a green “Done” sign on the “Sign up for Google AdSense” card.
Once you sign the YouTube Partner Program terms and connect an AdSense account, your channel will automatically be put in a review queue. YouTube’s automated systems and human reviewers will then review your channel’s content to check if it follows all of YouTube’s guidelines.
