If you own a website or a blog, you stand a chance of making some money through Google adsense. Google adsense is an advertising platform set up by google to display ads on websites and blogs while the webmaster earns a commission from user clicks, impressions and interactions with the ads displayed on your website or blog.
Someone once asked me how people make money online, and according to the fact, the commonest route through which people make money online is through Google Adsense. The only requirements are:
You must own a website or blog
Be approved for Adsense
Be able to drive reasonable traffic to your website or blog.
If you do not already have a blog, and you are interested in making money online with google via Adsense, you should consider starting a professional blog for free, still with Google.
Same goes for monetizing videos on YouTube, but I will talk about this as we go on.
Another way to make money online with Google is through Google Adwords. Google Adwords is very similar to Google Adsense, but this time, it is made solely for advertisers. Advertisers are those who publishes the Ads that would be displayed on your blog or website. Google has an algorithm that figures how and where these Ads are displayed on the advertising sites and blogs.
You may not earn directly using Google Adwords, but being able to effectively use Google Adwords means you can increase your page views, get more sales and make your products more visible to your end users, through the understanding of how the Adwords product help in analyzing user keywords and their relative densities. This is very similar to Search Engine Optimization(SEO), but you will see more of SEO later in this post.

Do you build Android apps, or you have a cool idea for an app? There is an opening for you here. All you need to do it make the app available after building it, put it on Google Play Store.
There are two common ways to make money online with Google through your app.
You can make money by selling the app you have created on Google Play. Simply set up a Merchant account with Google Wallet. Then publish the app as a paid app and watch the money roll in each time someone downloads it. You can include Google Ads in your app, such that as users uses your app, you also display ads to them. I will cover more of this in the AdMob later in this post.
