  • Have a WordPress website ready to earn money with Adsense
  • Have no website but have an interest in learning the inner workings of Adsense

I have earned between $500,000 and $600,000 in Adsense revenue over the past 8 years. In this short course I explain both the simple steps to get started and the advanced principles that expert Adsense users leverage to optimize their earnings.

Millions of people earn money from their websites using Adsense. You can do it too!

Follow the steps in this course and you will quickly:

  • Get an Adsense account established
  • Put ads on your website
  • Begin seeing earnings in your Adsense account

That’s the great news.

But you will go way beyond simply getting setup with the basics. In this course you will:

  • Learn the behind the scenes process that give ads their revenue power
  • Be able to recognize websites that have done a lousy job with Adsense
  • Put the right kind of ads, in the right places on your site from the very beginning
  • Use the Adsense dashboard to tweak and refine your Adsense strategy
  • Choose topics for your website that will attract the highest paying ads
  • Avoid the trap of getting your Adsense account canceled
  • Get the right WordPress plugins installed to give you all the flexibility you need
  • See live examples of extreme Adsense success

How Are We Going To Do This?

Quite simply we are going to cover the action steps and the principles you need to know, in the right order. You will know what to do and when to do it, but also know why you are doing it.

I’ve been burned and I’ve been blessed. I’ll tell you the straight scoop on how and why then tell you what you need to do to get more of the blessing part and less of the burning.

So you will:

  • Learn about how Adsense works
  • Get an Adsense account setup
  • Put the first ad on your website
  • Wait for Adsense to approve your website and your account
  • See how the placement of your ads makes a huge difference in your revenue
  • Learn the details of ad types
  • Install the plugins you need to put ads on your site
  • Paste the Adsense code in the right spots so ads show up where you want them
  • Get used to checking out the numbers in your dashboard and see where your money is coming from
  • Learn how the content on your website makes a difference in how much money you make from ads
  • Learn what things to avoid so that your Adsense account stays healthy and happy
  • See the money start coming in and tweak everything to increase your earnings

Is This For You?

That depends. This is for beginners (even though experts would benefit from the tips and advice).

It is for two categories of people:

1) Those who have a website and are ready to start making some money from Adsense

2) Those who don’t have a website but want to understand the Adsense revenue strategy

If that’s not you, check out my other courses!

If it is you, I’ll see you in Module 1.
