How to make money online – Pay Per Click

One of the most effective ways to make money with your blog or website is pay per click. Read more on how to use pay per click and which channels offer this option!

Google Adsense

One of the most famous pay per click channels is Google Adsense. One of the conditions to place Google Ad’s on your blog of website is written content of at least 300 words. Especially when you want to get approved the first time it is important to have at least one page with a minimum of 300 words. The way Google Adsense works is when someone clicks on your ad you will get money. This can be anything between $0,01 and $2 or even more depending on the value of the ad.

The ad’s from Google can’t be chosen, Google does this based on what you write about. It can take some time for the ad’s to get optimalized though.
For Pay Per Click it is important to have as many visitors to your blog or website as possible. On average you need 1000 visitors to get 1 click.
One thing you should never do is promote clicking on ad’s. If you do this and Google finds out you will get banned and will (almost) never be able to get a new Adsense account.

Affiliate links

Even with affiliate marketing it is possible to make money by pay per click. There are different affiliate platforms like CJ, Clickbank or ShareASale. CJ (used to be commission junction) is one of the biggest affiliate platforms out there and probably the first one you’ll find. Not every affiliate partner will offer the pay per click option, mostly you get payed if people actually buy something though!
