  • Google RankBrain

Whenever I’m asked how I make money with a website and I say “Google”, most people have a bewildered expression on their face. “How can you earn money with Google?”, they ask. Little do most people outside of this industry know, Google, as well as many other companies, have a multitude of programs you can take advantage of to make money with your very own websites. In some cases, you don’t even need a website to make money with Google! What do I mean by this? Keep reading to find out.

How To Earn Money With Google

There are 3┬áprimary ways people make money with Google: Adsense, The YouTube Partner Program, and YouTube by itself; the latter of which I’ll explain below.

YouTube Partner Program

YouTube is owned by Google and they offer a program that allows you to monetise your videos with ads. If you’re currently a YouTube content creator or you’re planning on becoming one, then you can take advantage of their YouTube Partner Program to place ads in and around your videos. You’ll receive a percentage of the revenue generated from these ads, which Google will pay you once you reach a threshold.

YouTube

Now, let me explain this. Let’s say you have a YouTube channel, but for one reason or another you don’t want to monetise it using the YouTube Partner Program. That’s not a problem, because you can still use YouTube to promote your products, services, and websites. You may have noticed some YouTube users doing this already by posting links in the descriptions of their videos. In many cases, these links are “affiliate links” from affiliate networks such as Clickbank.

Adsense

Finally, you can make money with Google by using their Adsense program, which allows you to place text or image ads on your website. In case you hadn’t noticed, this site has Adsense ads on it, which is how I generate part of the revenue on this site. In case you’re wondering how much you can make with Adsense, my previous article titled, “How Much Does Google Adsense Pay? It Pays About…“, goes over how Adsense pays and factors Google takes into consideration to determine how much you make.
