subject of Google Adsense Profits Mixed In With Affiliate
Marketing is certainly no exception.

Are you a webmaster who needs funds to keep your website
running? Or is your website the only way for you to earn income?
Whichever you are, for as long as you are a webmaster or a web
publisher and you need cash, affiliate marketing may work well
for you. With affiliate marketing, you may get a lot of cash
pouring into your bank account easily. And if your website is
rich in great contents and you want to earn more profit, why not
get into the Google Adsense program as well?

Why Affiliate Marketing?

Well, simply because affiliate marketing is the easiest and
probably the best way to earn profits online, unless otherwise
you are a businessman and would rather sell your own products
online than advertise other businessman's products on your site.
But even online retailers can benefit from affiliate marketing
programs, because affiliate marketing actually works for
merchants as well as it works for the affiliates.

Affiliate marketing, simply said, is a relationship or agreement
made between two websites, with one site being the merchant's
website and the other being the affiliate's site. In the
relationship, the affiliate agrees to let the merchant advertise
his products on the affiliate's site. The merchant, on the other
hand, would agree to pay the affiliate in whatever method they
have agreed into. This would generally mean easy income for the
affiliate, as he would do nothing but place the retailer's ad on
his site. This would also be very beneficial for the merchant,
as getting affiliates to advertise their products would be a lot
more affordable than hiring an advertising firm to promote their

There are a variety of methods on how the merchant would
compensate the affiliate for his services, and for the
webmaster, these methods simply translates to the method by
which he would earn easy cash. Among the more common methods of
compensation are the pay-per-click method, the pay-per-lead
method, and the pay-per-sale method. The pay-per-click method is
the method most preferred by affiliates, for their site's
visitor would only have to visit the advertiser's site for them
to gain money. The other two methods, on the other hand, are
better preferred by merchants, as they would only have to
compensate you if your visitor becomes one of their registrants
or if the visitor would actually buy their products.

Getting much profit on affiliate marketing programs, however,
does not depend so much on the compensation method is it does on
the traffic generated by your site. A website that can attract
more visitors would generally have the greater chance of
profiting in affiliate marketing programs.

Adsense Profits Mixed In With Affiliate Marketing. Can you think
of ways to apply what's been covered so far?

What about Google Adsense?

Google Adsense is actually some sort of an affiliate marketing
program. In Google Adsense, Google act as the intermediary
between the affiliates and the merchants. The merchant, or the
advertiser, would simply sign up with Google and provide the
latter with text ads pertaining to their products. These ads,
which is actually a link to the advertiser's website, would then
appear on Google searches as well as on the websites owned by
the affiliates, or by those webmasters who have signed up with
the Google Adsense program.

While one can find a lot of similarities between Google Adsense
and other affiliate marketing programs, you can also see a lot
of differences. In Google Adsense, all the webmaster has to do
is place a code on his website and Google takes care of the
rest. The ads that Google would place on your site would
generally be relevant to the content of your site. This would be
advantageous both for you and for the advertiser, as the
visitors of your site would more or less be actually interested
with the products being advertised.

The Google Adsense program compensates the affiliate in a
pay-per-click basis. The advertisers would pay Google a certain
amount each time their ad on your site is clicked and Google
would then forward this amount to you through checks, although
only after Google have deducted their share of the amount.
Google Adsense checks are usually delivered monthly. Also, the
Google Adsense program provides webmasters with a tracking tool
that allows you to monitor the earnings you actually get from a
certain ad.

So, where do all of these lead us to?

Where else but to profits, profits and even more profits!
Affiliate marketing programs and the Google Adsense program
simply work, whether you are the merchant or the affiliate. For
the merchant's side, a lot of money can be saved if advertising
effort is concentrated on affiliate marketing rather than on
dealing with advertising firms. For the webmaster, you can
easily gain a lot of profits just by doing what you do best, and
that is by creating websites. And if you combine all your
profits from both the Google Adsense program and other affiliate
marketing programs, it would surely convert to a large amount of
