As for my blog, AdSense is the main source of my earnings. That's why I highly recommend to utilize this ad network, especially if you are a Filipino blogger like me.
What is AdSense?
Google AdSense is an advertising program run by Google that allows website owners and bloggers to monetize their content by displaying targeted ads on their websites. Advertisers use AdSense to bid for space on websites based on specific keywords, topics, and audience demographics. When visitors to your website click on or view these ads, you earn revenue. AdSense is one of the most popular and user-friendly advertising platforms for website monetization.

How to Earn Money From AdSense
Earning money from AdSense involves several steps, from creating an account to optimizing ad placements. Here's a comprehensive guide on how to earn money from AdSense:
1. Create a Google Account
If you don't have one, create a Google account. If you already have a Gmail account, you can use that to sign up for AdSense.
2. Create a Website or Blog
To participate in AdSense, you need a website or blog with original and valuable content. It could be a personal blog, a niche website, a news site, or any other online platform where you regularly publish content.
For me, I chose to use Blogger since it is FREE and can be easily configured with AdSense.
3. Apply for AdSense
TIP: Your blogsite must have at least 10-20 contents/blogs and a few traffic for faster approval (but not guaranteed).
4. Get Approved
Google will review your application and website content. If your website meets AdSense policies and guidelines, you'll receive approval to display ads. For my blog, my AdSense application took at least 1-2 weeks before it got approved.
5. Set Up Ad Units
After approval, log in to your AdSense account, and create ad units. Ad units come in various sizes and formats, such as display banners, text ads, and responsive ad units. Choose the ones that fit your website's layout and design.
TIP: Responsive ad units are more effective to my blog. Also, use the Auto-ads option, it's one of the best features of AdSense.
6. Place Ads on Your Website
Copy the generated ad codes and paste them into your website's HTML code where you want the ads to appear. Place ads in strategic locations, such as within content, near the top of the page, or in the sidebar, to maximize visibility and clicks.
7. Optimize Ad Placements
Experiment with different ad placements to find what works best for your audience. Monitor the performance of your ads using AdSense's built-in analytics to track clicks, impressions, and earnings. Test different ad formats, sizes, and positions to optimize revenue. This is actually important since you can recognize the best places where to put your ads on to your site.
8. Follow AdSense Policies
Continuously adhere to AdSense policies. Avoid clicking on your ads, encouraging others to click, or using deceptive tactics to increase clicks. Violating AdSense policies can result in account suspension.
9. Focus on Quality Content
Create high-quality, engaging, and original content to attract more visitors. Quality content not only enhances user experience but also increases the likelihood of ad clicks.
If you are a blogger (regardless of your niche), you have to always focus on your contents. This is the only reason why people (your readers, visitors) visit your website. The more visitors you have, the more website traffic you get, the more possible ad-clicks, the more revenue for you.
