Widget Wednesday: Google AdSense

Today’s widget under the spotlight is the Google AdSense widget.

The Google AdSense widget makes the implementation of Google ads on your site as simple as copy and paste! If you’re not familiar with Google AdSense, read-on for more information.

What is Google AdSense?
Google AdSense is a flexible, hassle-free way to earn revenue by showing relevant and engaging ads alongside your online content. Best part? It’s free, easy to use and there’s no contract required!

How does it work?
AdSense works by matching text and image ads to your site based on your content and the types of users that visit your site. For example, if you write about running, your readers may see ads next to your post about running shoes and equipment. Ads are created and paid for by advertisers who want to promote their products.

Great content is key
Posting high quality content is the best way to maximize your returns with AdSense. It’s important to take a little extra time defining your topic, creating a post that is engaging and matters to your readers. The more interesting and appealing your content is, the more likely your readers will be to click on the ads on your website.

 

You can find the Google AdSense widget under the Ecommerce widget category in Sitebuilder.
