It is an ad publishing network, similar to billboards, you rent a space to Adsense on your website. The difference is that Adsense pays you based on more complex algorithms, and the pay is not fixed. It depends on the number of visitors, number of clicks and majorly the amount of money Google earns by showing ads on your website. But before you create a Google Adsense account, read When should you Apply?

Adsense is the best site monetizing network there is right now, best in the sense of earnings. The network is so good that the 2nd best network which is media.net isn’t half as profitable for most sites.

The ad network basically displays advertisements on your website, booked by users via Google Adwords. As a publisher of the ads, you get payed a share of the earning by Google. AdSense is Google’s primary source of income, making it the largest advertising network in the world!

CTR (Click-through rate) is basically what decide your earnings, no matter what you get paid for, if your CTR is good, you get paid more.

What should you know before applying?

Adsense currently gives you only a single chance, if you are out you are out! Once you get banned, you can never apply again. Google’s policies are so strict for publishers, if you have a low traffic website, accidental violations are fairly common. Accidental or intentional, a violation will result in a irrevocable ban.

When should you apply?

You should apply when you are getting enough traffic to meet the minimum threshold within 2-3 months.

Otherwise it becomes too disappointing, and violations become easier to achieve.

Let me explain this, Google has no minimum earnings clause, but the policies are made in way which favors the advertisers, not the publishers. A minimum amount of traffic will ensure that advertisers are not wasting money. For an example, a few clicks from your IP address will go unnoticed if you are having 100 clicks in a day, but won’t go unnoticed if you are getting merely 5 clicks a day.
