If you follow my blog at all, you know that I typically talk about ways to generate web traffic via ranking high on Google, best SEO practices, and even social media content creation and advertising. I even get into tracking data via Google Analytics, Google Tag Manager, and digging into Google Search Console and Google My Business.

But there's one Google Product I haven't really blogged about much, and that's Google AdSense. I know this product very well from my days as a publisher. From 2006-2011, I ran an online publication that was able to generate revenue through a freemium content model. Part of that revenue was from advertising, mainly through Google AdSense.

AdSense is the other side of Google AdWords, meaning the sites that companies promote their sites on via the Google Ads Display Network, are the sites that publish those same ads on their site via the AdSense product.

Looking to monetize your web traffic by running some ads on your site? This video shows you how to get started with Google AdSense, create an account, grab the code snippet needed, embed it into your website, and what to expect next!

Thanks for reading, watching and listening, and have a great day!
