Affiliate Marketing

  2. Good commission with just one sale.
  3. Maintain your user experience.
  4. Good for low traffic blogs who are not getting good traffic only getting target traffic.

What is Adsense? And why Adsense is good or bad for you:

Google Adsesne

Adsense is one of the most popular and easy ways among bloggers to make money from blogs. Adsense is one of the big Ad networks on internet owned by internet king Google. 

90% revenue of Google come from Google Adsense.

When your blog starts getting some traffic from search engines and from other blogs then you can apply for google adsesne.

Google ll review your application and approve or reject based on there google Adsense policies. Your blog should follow all policies made by Adsense to qualify.

If your application approves or if your application rejects then google ll email you about it.

If your application rejects they ll mention that why your blog is rejected and how you can fix it to reapply.

After approval google ll tell you that now you can sign in and Adsense units to your blog and google ll start showing ads on your blog example You can see live ads on my blog in header and sidebar.

The best place to show Adsense ads in my view is header right side, Top Sidebar,  And below the post title.

Google ll analyze your blog and show ads related your keywords and blog niche.

To make most out of you have to choose a good niche which has good (CPC (Cost Per Click)) because if your keywords have high CPC you ll get high-quality ads and if low then you ll get low CPC ads.

You have to search Profitable Keywords With Low Competition so you can rank and you ll start getting some traffic so google ll show ads based on your keywords.

When someone clicks on it then google ll record that clicks and pays you.

Pros Of Adsense:

  1. Easy to earn with the automatic process just add Adsense units to your blog example sidebar, header or in posts.
  2. You just need to work on your keywords and traffic other handles by Adsense itself.
  3. Adsense offer to transfer money from western union good for those who don’t have PayPal or other.
  4. Fully automatic process just show ads and start making money.

Con’s Of Adsense:

  1. Hard to approve because google review blogs carefully and approve or reject.
  2. Low money because all depends on your blog content quality and CPC.
  3. You have no control on ads.
  4. Adsense ads not good for user experience.
  5. Adsense ads can make your site slow. Scan your site through Gtmetrix or Pingdom you ll notice the difference before and after implating ads.

Final Words:

So this is the info I know about Adsense or affiliate marketing. So the question comes what ll I choose for my blog Affiliate Marketing VS Adsense.

If you are a new and beginning blogger then you can try your hands on Adsense if your blog ll approve. Just improve your keywords and traffic you ll start making money with Adsense.

If you know some strategies and know how to write quality product reviews then go with affiliate marketing because all you need is write the high-quality product review and high-quality content so you can make most with affiliate marketing.
