One of the easy options to make money online is to build a content based website, promote it and monetize it with Google Adsense.

Google Adsense is one of the best, if not the best advertising network currently running. Adsense has excellent track record and great technology to support their contextual advertising system.

Adsense is the affiliate program for web publishers, and the advertisers came from Google Adwords program. In basic words Adwords advertisers bid on specific keywords, and the highest bidders will have better chance to show their ads on web pages with similar contents or keywords the advertisers wanted.

For publishers we just need to put some codes on our web pages, and if the visitors click on the advertisement, the webmasters make money.

The best thing about Google Adsense is their contextual ads technology; where the publishers will be able to show the most relevant ads on their web pages; which in terms means that advertisers will be able to show their ads on websites with related contents.

With the contextual system, Adsense can sometimes be seen as extra information for a website rather than pure advertising.

Google Adsense is one of the very few good programs that accept worldwide publishers, and without strict traffic requirements. The only requirement is to have proper and useful contents.

I strongly advice new publishers to study the Terms of Service (TOS) from Google Adsense, there are very strict on a few matters, so make sure you do everything according to their TOS.
