    WHAT IS IT EXACTLY? Adsense is a way to monetize and earn money from your site by putting Google ads from their advertising network Adwords. They don't send you a bill because the program is free to join. And yes, you and Google will both earn from the ads and Google gives you your share. It has been around since June 2003 and Adsense has allowed many website owners to earn from their sites. I highly recommend going through the Adsense Quick Tour to learn more about the program http://www.google.com/services/adsense_tour/index.html HOW DOES IT WORK You apply and once you get approved, you can put in the Adsense code in your site. Here are the instructions on how to add Adsense codes on your site https://www.google.com/adsense/support/bin/answer.py?answer=10192&topic=8434 You earn through various ways: 1. Pay per click - this is the common way to earn which is you earn every time a visitor clicks on your ads 2. Pay per impression - an advertiser can specifically target your site and show ads where you earn via cost per 1,000 impression (e.g. you earn every time someone sees your ad, even though they don't click on it) 3. Referral - you can also earn if you refer a visitor to use Adsense or Adwords, download the Google toolbar, etc. WHAT PERSONAL INFO DO I HAVE TO GIVE? In the application form https://www.google.com/adsense/g-app-single-1 you will give - your name - your address - if your country qualifies for electronic fund transfer and you wish to be paid by EFT, your bank details - your SSN or tax account number if you are in the US as Google reports Adsense income to the IRS IS IT WORTH IT AND HOW MUCH MONEY PER MONTH DOES IT BRING IN? Some sites do very well with Adsense (even in the millions of dollars a year) while many more sites do extremely poorly with the program (can't even earn $10 a month). One of the misconception people have about Adsense is they simply slap it in their websites and it will automatically earn them big money -- which is not true as evidenced by the many disgruntled webmasters Your income will depend on: - the topic of your site (if you have high paying keywords you stand to earn more) - responsiveness of users to ad (are visitors coming to your site with blinders in their eye or do they look at the ads as additional complementary resource) - traffic (you earn more with more traffic, even if you have low paying keywords or other metrics) - how you implement the ads on your site (some positions and colors work better than others) I suggest you join the program (you've got nothing to lose as it is free) and see how your site will do with it. I've been with Adsense since June 2003 and it's been a GREAT income generating program for us. So for me, Adsense is definitely worth it

    • Google covers a large network of websites in different niches and languages. It's a code inside the websites that shows related ads based on niches and languages of websites. In order to make money through this program you'll need to sign up to this program and then the ads will generate you income. It's a very popular way for web masters today to use this program.
