If you are a student or an entrepreneur or just an average person trying to make some cash, you can follow these steps and begin earning using Google. All you have to do is lend me your undivided attention as we go through this article.
Ready? Let’s go…
1. Google Adsense
This is the most popular way to make money with Google. Google Adsense is a program that simply pays you to run ads on your blog or website. It’s just like affiliate marketing and it is super easy to use.
Each time a visitor gets interested and takes attention in the ads, you earn a commission. The more visitors your website or blog attracts, the more ad interest you will record, and the more money you will make.
So, if you have a blog or website that consistently generates a decent amount of traffic, then you should monetize it with Google Adsense and earn cool cash.
If you don’t, you could simply check out some of our other articles on how to create and run a blog that makes money.
Moving on, you must bear in mind that as an AdSense user there are rules you’ll have to follow such as discipline and honesty, if you must partner with Google through their Adsense program. A good step to take would be creating a blog that has amazing content.
Such are able to drive clicks which leads to payment.
So why not give it a try
2. Google Adwords
This is the twin of Google Adsense, but it differs slightly in that it is meant for advertisers. While Google Adwords will not fetch you money directly, it can help you attract customers to your business or visitors to your blog, which ultimately means profits for you.
So you depending on the growth of your blog, tons of companies, businesses, and brands will be able to reach out to you for space where they can upload adverts like service offerings, product listings video content, and generate mobile application installs within the Google ad network to web users.
One major advantage of Google Adwords is that it presents your advertisements to internet users who are searching Google with keywords related to your advert. So, your chances of achieving your campaign goals are very bright as the ads and audience are well-targeted.
3. Search Engine Optimization
Google lists websites on its results pages based on the relevance of the websites to search queries and on the authority of the websites.
The position of a particular website or blog in Google’s search rankings can be improved (this is what is called Search Engine Optimization), but this requires a thorough knowledge of the various factors that Google uses to rank websites and expertise at using these factors to a website’s advantage.
Many website owners now hire SEO experts to improve their Google rankings. If you have a deep understanding of SEO especially on Google, you can make money optimizing people’s websites.
Owned by Google, Blogger is a free platform; just like WordPress and Tumblr, for setting up and running blogs. If you have some knowledge, experience, or passion for a topic that you would love to share with others, then you can start a blog on that topic and share your knowledge with others who are willing to learn from you.
Once you have built a large readership, your blog will generate huge traffic consistently, and you can monetize your blog with Adsense, affiliate marketing, sales of ad private space, and so on.
5. Google Checkout
This is a payment-handling program owned by Google. While it won’t fetch you money directly, it can greatly boost your conversions and profits by serving as an easy means to receive payment from your customers or clients online. People love convenience, and they are more likely to buy a product or service if the method of payment is very convenient, and that’s what Google Checkout offers.
6. Google Jobs
This sticks out from the list because it doesn’t come with the work-from-home advantage. From time to time, Google announces job openings in its offices in the US and other countries, calling for applications from qualified individuals.
If you will love to work with one of the greatest companies in the world, if you have what it takes, then apply for a job at Google when the next openings are announced, and you could end up working with one of the world’s biggest companies.
7. YouTube Ads
I bet you enjoy going into YouTube to watch some of your favorite YouTubers do their thing, or maybe you just enjoy watching funny and educational stuff. Whatever your purpose may be the fact is that those guys you love watching are getting paid by YouTube and so can you.
It could be about anything at all! one thing I have realized is that millions of people on YouTube will watch you and subscribe if YOU UPLOAD CONTENT YOU LOVE. That there is the secret to every YouTuber with millions of subscribers. Pewdepie recently hit 100 million, subscribers. He doesn’t upload tutorials, movies or funny skits. All he did was record himself playing video games(what he loved) and people seemed to love watching him.
That makes no sense right? well it didn’t to me till I found myself hitting the subscribe button. I guess it as just fun to watch. My point here to start a YouTube channel that focuses on things you love.
Another example I’d like to share is Mike Boyd. His first video was just of him trying to learn a skateboard trick in a day. In fact, that is all he does, he learns stuff really fast and takes records of his progressions. And guess what, everyone seems to love it. He has over a million subscribers and as you know. 1million is the point every YouTuber can begin making money.
He even has multiple skillshare classes which he teaches all the things he learns in his videos.
When there’s an ad on a video watch page, the creator of that video shares the revenue from that ad with YouTube. YouTubers aren’t allowed to discuss ad rates, but it’s generally acknowledged to be between $1 per 1,000 views, up to a few dollars per 1,000 views.
Many YouTubers also make sponsored or branded content, in which they share or discuss a product for a fee. This can be very lucrative, but there’s also the risk of clouding your authentic relationship with your audience.
By simply monetizing your videos with Adsense or by other methods, you will earn some cool cash based on the number of views that your videos attract.
8. Google Keyword Planner
Google Keyword Planner helps you figure out the words and phrases that people are using in their search engine queries. With this tool, business owners and bloggers can find out which keywords are most likely to attract visitors to their websites and blogs. And by optimizing their websites for these keywords, they will attract targeted visitors who will most likely take any desired action. This tool won’t fetch you quick cash, but it can help you generate huge profits in the long term.
If you are highly experienced with any of Google’s tools listed above, you can make money by teaching others who are willing to learn how to use these tools. For example, if you understand everything about SEO, you can run an e-course or membership program that teaches people how to use and make the most from SEO.
10. Write a book
Another way to make money from Google is to write a book that contains information on how to use and make the most from any of Google’s tools and programs that you have used to achieve great results repeatedly.
Other Ways to Make Money Online with Google
11. You can develop apps for the Google Android platform and make some money, either by directly selling the apps per download, selling credit points or advertising in the app. I actually have a group of friends who create apps for download on play store.
These guys create amazing apps that at a point require payment and thanks to how effective the is, people actually pay money to get the full features of this app.
12. You can also make money by retailing Google’s physical products such as Google.
All in all, it’s up to you to decide if you go through google all day long looking for ways to get money online or be the type that works with google and make money online. with that being said, akk that is left is that you grab your device, whatever it might eb and begin making your money using Google. You have nothing to lose.
