One of the original online part time job ideas I described was to use the power of affiliate marketing to monetize a website or a blog. While that’s one certainly one very simple and easy way to start producing passive income for yourself, placing Google Adsense advertisements on your blog is certainly another great idea for generating passive income.
Here’s how to set up a website with Google Adsense:
1). Create a self-hosted blog with WordPress (do not use wordpress.com – your blog must be self-hosted or else Google will ban your Adsense account). You can also set up your own self-hosted website – it doesn’t have to be a blog.
2). Put a lot of really good unique content on your site that you created. Placing Adsense on a site filled with copyrighted material (of which you are not the copyright holder) will result in a banned account. Google is very serious about that.
3). Create an Adsense account with Google.
4). Follow the super-easy instructions (that they will provide to you) to place Adsense advertisements on your website. You don’t need any technical know-how to do this – it really is very simple.
You should also note that this will take time to generate any significant amount of passive income. But the good news is that it’s exactly the type of online job which will provide results based on how much effort you put into it.
You’ll need a website or a blog with really good content, and a Google Adsense account. Note that Google does not allow Adsense advertisements to be placed on free blogging platforms such as WordPress.com or blogger (a self-hosted WordPress account is ok though).
Start up costs:
Just the cost of your website domain name and the web hosting for your blog.
Just like we described with the affiliate marketing online job description, your earnings potential with Google Adsense is completely unlimited. The more popular your blog is, the more income you will receive. There are many people make a very good living off of Adsense income.
This is probably one of the most popular methods of generating passive income from an online part time job. As long as you have interesting content that others want to see, you will make money with Adsense. Exactly how much depends on the quality of your content…
