Working with Adsense

There’s no doubt that this is one of the best and most popular program around.  There’s nobody who wants to make money online who hasn’t heard of Google Adsense. It’s like the buzzword of the virtual world. If you get approved, you can monetize your site with some of the most desirable ads. However, the approval criteria have become so stringent lately, you will find it difficult to get your application approved unless you have established a significant online presence through your blog or website.

Monetization of a site

Website monetization simply means the process or processes that you use to start earning an income from your website or blog.  While there are several strategies that you can implement to monetize your site, there are a few that are far more effective than others. To find out the effectiveness of the different platforms across the board, I spoke to several website owners and asked them to share their experiences and their opinions on the best monetizing strategies. The sites mentioned below were unanimously voted as amongst the best ones to use.
