It is possible to make money with Google AdSense without a website but it does not mean that you do not need to create content. Similar to affiliate marketing you need a platform to get started. Let’s see below how this business model works.
What Is Google Adsense and How Does It Work?
It is an advertising program run by Google that allows you to put ads on your website and earn money every time someone clicks on them. You can place them anywhere you want on your site but Google chooses the content of your ads depending on the preferences of your visitors.
Many marketers believe that is the best advertising program and it is their first choice when they want to add advertisements on a website. However, it has an approval process that many beginners find it too difficult to get approved.
Here are some things you should do before creating a Google AdSense account:
- Publish unique and quality content
- Publish enough content (at least 10-15 articles if you blog)
- Remove any other ads
If they will reject you, they will send an email explaining why they did not approve you. Fix the mistakes and apply again.
I usually use affiliate marketing to monetize my websites but I have added advertisements on one of them. I did not have any problem with the approval and I had built this site with the way of Wealthy Affiliate.
Many people ask how much money they can earn but I cannot give them a straight answer. It depends on your niche, the quality of your content, your traffic etc. Usually, you make a few cents to a few dollars per click.
How To Make Money With Google AdSense Without a Website
I guess that you have seen AdSense advertisements on Youtube before.
You need to pick up a niche and start a new channel. Before you apply, create 10-15 quality videos. There is no problem if you apply and be rejected because you can apply again later. You may need to reach a number of views (1000 would be fine) before getting approved.
Usually, you will get a few cents per click but if you have many views you will make a significant amount of money. You will start slow but as you add videos your channel will grow and you will increase your views.
A good idea could be to target low competition keywords if you use a tool like Jaaxy to find them. You will have more chances to get ranked on the first page of Youtube or Google for the specific keywords.
Hubpages is a website where you can publish your articles and earn money. You have two options to monetize your content, Amazon affiliate program and Google Adsense.
You can get traffic to your articles with the regular ways like SEO and social media marketing but you also may get traffic from the Hubpages’ platform.
This is the advantage here, you do not have to wait three months or longer to make money like a new website. If you are an active member on Hubpages who creates quality content you can earn some money faster.
They manually review all the articles that are published and they remove the low-quality ones. So, create unique and informative content.
On the negatives is that you have to share your earnings with Hubpages. They will take 40% of your revenue.
If you want to get started, you should make the same process like building a website. Keyword research, learn how to use the keywords in your articles and share your content.
I do not think that other alternatives to make money with Google Adsense without a website could be really profitable. You will not be able to get enough traffic on the platform and you will have to wait for organic traffic.
For example, you can start with Blogger but you need to optimize your content for the search engines and it will take you 3-6 months to get ranked. So, it is better to start your own website because it is more effective than a blog platform.
Advantages and Disadvantages of Building Your Own Website
I usually hear three reasons why people do not want to build a website:
- They do not want to create content
- Technical skills are needed
- They want to make money fast
First of all, you cannot make money online with ads or affiliate marketing if you do not create any type of content. On a website or a blog platform you write articles, on Youtube you create videos and if you have a list, you write emails.
The second reason is just a myth. You do not need any technical skills these days, check out an article on how to create your own website in 30 seconds.
The third problem is real. When you have a new website you need to be patient before you get any traffic. But it is your own business and you are in charge. You do not share your earnings and no one will remove your content.
Youtube, Hubpages, and other online platforms can delete or ban your account any time they want and you may lose all the hard work you have done until that time. But in your business, you are the boss.
After saying that, here are the advantages and disadvantages:
- You are the boss and you can control your business
- Great potential
- You can use many monetization methods and not only Google Adsense
- You do not share your hard earned money
- You may need to wait three months or longer to get traffic
As you can see, there are some options to make money with Google AdSense without a website but the only benefit is that you can get traffic a few weeks earlier if you do everything right.
However, when you have a site, you are taking the full control of your business.
Google Adsense is a simple method to monetize your traffic. If you have visitors, you can put some ads on your content or on the sidebar and earn from every click.
