Have you ever wondered how people make money online with an advertiser supported website? It’s actually pretty simple – as simple as adding a snipet of code to your website. If you have ever been interested in starting an advertiser supported website
of your own, the following information will point you in the right direction. At the end of this post you will also find links to two excellent free resource websites that will guide you the rest of the way.
What is AdSense?
Google’s AdSense program enables website owners to make money by placing ads on the pages of their website. Google automatically selects the best ads to show your visitors based on your content, and you generate an income when your visitors view or click on the ads.
It’s that simple.
How Do I Apply for AdSense?
Applying for the AdSense program is very easy and takes a only minutes. Simply visit the Google AdSense home page.
If you have a nicely organized website, and it abides by the terms and conditions of the AdSense program (such as no drugs, pornography, or gambling), it is likely that you will be approved.
AdSense is not yet available for websites in every language, though it is available for the following languages: English, French, German, Italian, Dutch, Portuguese, Japanese, Spanish, Danish, Finnish, Norwegian, Swedish, Chinese, Korean, Polish, Russian, Hungarian, and Turkish.
After you apply it may take two or three days to receive your acceptance or rejection, though Google often responds even more quickly.
What If I Don’t Have a Website?
If you don’t have a website yet, you will want to begin by creating a business plan. A good business plan will include:
- Identifying your Target Market
- Identifying Your Solution to People’s Needs
- How You Will Attract Traffic to Your Website
- What Products You Might Offer (If Any)

Your Domain Name
Your next step it to purchase a domain name. Domain names cost about $10 for one year of service. If you want to keep things simple, you can register your domain name with your website hosting company. When you are ready to start brain storming for domain names, you can go to GoDaddy’s home page to see what domains are available.
Your Website or Blog
Next, you will need to decide if a blog or a website is best suited for your content. Blogs can be started for less that $10, and they are the easiest introduction to the world of websites. If you are a little more brave you could launch a website, and enjoy the flexibility it offers. You can have a template website or a custom designed website. Prices will range from a few hundred dollars to thousands. Contact a web designer in your area for details.
