So let's take a closer look at Google AdSense, so you could get an idea of how it could help you in your affiliate marketing entrepreneurship. Product owners (merchants), advertisers and other marketing entities place ads with Google, which is one of the most popular search engines (or tools) for locating various resources on the World Wide Web. When a website owner/publisher join the Google AdSense program s/he is allowed to display ads (product links & banners) designed by the AdSense team on a personally owned website.

To displaying ads on your website

When your website visitors click through these display ads, you earn a small percentage of the fee paid to Google by the advertisers since those advertisers pay Google for every click-through made by a customer, which is why you as an AdSense program participant, receive a share from that payment. What's really great about the Google AdSense program is that the ads they designed are relevant to your website's content; and since most visitors of your website are interested in the site's topic (theme?), compatibility of AdSense display ads helps to keep the visitors interest.

Of course, such compatibility may also induce your website visitors to click through a link or banner, thereby creating revenue for you and a possible sale for the advertiser. Using state-of-the-art technology, Google scans your web site and matches the content of your pages to their large database of advertisers; this way, the company is able to find ads that are targeted by users of your site. In addition, Google changes the ads on your site as you change the content of your pages, so you can always expect the ads to be relevant to your site's content.

Having Google ads on your website is also a way of convincing visitors to return to your site. This is important because repeat customers multiply your income without having to exert extra effort to convince them again to click through your links. And your potential to earn doesn't depend on them alone; since you already have their confidence, they can be your endorsers as well by refering your website to family and friends who probably share the same interests with them.

This adds variety to your site, thereby attracting different kinds of users. As you attract more users, you increase your earning potential as well, and if you are targeting a specific nationality for your site users, don't worry, because AdSense can be used in different languages.

Make content related to high-paying ads so that you'll give yourself the opportunity to earn more, because some ads pay only a few cents while some ads pay you dollars just for a single click, but it's not easy to differentiate between them.
