Is Google Adsense Still A Viable Way To Make Money Online?

My friend Mark Butler who runs the Keyword Academy keeps telling me about all of these members he has that are making anywhere from $1000-$5000 a month just from Adsense. I asked him to show me what exactly they were doing and so he walked me through their methodology and I have to admit that I was really impressed. So impressed in fact that I decided to try it out for myself.

I know that I have talked about how Adsense should be used as a supplementary income stream on a website and not a main income source but if I can make $1k-$5k a month from one website with just Adsense, I am willing to rethink my position on the matter.

The great thing about Adsense is that you don’t have to count on a conversion to make money. In other words, all you have to do is get the traffic to your site and have them click on the ads on your site and your part is done. With other affiliate programs you have to get someone to actually buy something before you will get paid. You can potentially┬ámake more money with affiliate programs but there is a lot less friction to get some to make a click than to make a purchase.

From a buying websites perspective, Adsense sites are for sale everywhere, and they are really cheap. It will probably  be much easier to find a good Adsense site candidate for a reasonable price thus creating a quick turnaround.

I really like Mark’s traffic generating strategy and I will continue to keep you updated as the site I started gets older and starts getting traffic and click$. Who knows, Prosperly may become Prospersense when all is said and done.

  • The Keyword Academy is a great community with great tools as a bonus. I’ve been a part of the community for a while now, and I followed Court and Mark for a bit before then. Their method works, plain and simple. For those of you reading this who haven’t checked it out yet, don’t wait any longer.

  • With Adsense, I agree that its nice to be paid on a click as opposed to a click through then conversion

  • So how’d it work for you? Any follow up?

  • Well it is 2 years later and with the latest Panda update I probably wouldn’t start a website from scratch to make money from adsense but I did just buy an established website that only made money from adsense and it does pretty good.
