Google has grown into a one-stop search resource for consumers all over the world. If you like listening to music, traveling, writing, or need to find an address or product, Google is the #1 go-to for most people.
Now, let’s face it. We can’t all lounge around the well-known, award winning Google HQ offices as employees; Google can’t employ everyone who wants to work with them.
But there are many ways you can make money from Google, even without leaving the comfort of your room.
That said, Google also provides many opportunities for people to make money. Using Google’s tools, features and benefits can allow you to earn a sizeable income working from home as well.
Here are some of the best ways to make money online with Google;
If you want to make money from ads on your website or blog your best bet may be to set up a Google Adsense account. Adsense is a free cost per click advertising campaign to help you earn more money.
This is the perfect way to take advantage of the traffic on your site and turn the clicks you get from your ads into cash. You can control where your ads will appear and be able to figure out which work best for you. Simply choose where you want the ad and you copy and paste the code wherever you want. You have to reach the minimum threshold to be paid. Give it a try and see how your ads do!
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.
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.
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 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.
YouTube is a program that allows internet users to upload vides to the web. Not only does YouTube allow you to share your videos with the world, but it also allows you to make money from them.
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.
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.
Sell Books on Google Play
Have a creative mind and want to make money by selling my books? Google Play lets you do just that. There is a Google Play Book Partner program you can join and earn money from your book or ebook. They are accepting a limited amount of publishers.
Depending on which country the author is from they currently may not be able to become a seller. A majority of countries can purchase books or get paid to their partner account for selling books though.
The books can be in either in PDF or EPUB formats. Both formats are suggested because EPUB offers readers a more flexible text when reading. Google will be in charge of all the hosting, sales and distribution of your books. You will receive sales reports and get to keep most of the revenue from each sale!
Another attempt is if you have your book on Google Books; if someone searches a word and it happens to be in your book it can show up in search results even if the word is not in the title. Bringing some additional traffic that can potentially buy your book. That’s not a bad deal!
