If you want to earn some extra money, then one of the best ways is through Google Adsense, placed either on your own website, or on your Youtube videos.

You don’t even have to have to host your own site, if you want to, as you can set up a blog with google’s own blogging platform, “Blogger”.  If blogging is not your thing, then you could turn to Youtube, which will allow you to put adsense advertising units within your video and besides it.

You may ask, why google adsense though, and not another advertising network ?  The simple answer to that is they simple are the leaders in the field, and whilst there are some very good competitors out there, they cannot compete with google for payments and the quantity of adverts.  They are also the only network that you can use with Youtube (not surprising as google own Youtube).

Google do have some of the strictest criteria and usage guidelines, so you have to bear that in mind whilst applying, and obviously you must never have registered for a Google Adsense account before.

Don’t be intimidated by the html code, as there are plenty of helpful guides on placing the code, which by the way is already formatted. All you have to do is choose the language and kind of button you would like, and copy and paste the html code to your site.
