Google AdSense Blogger
Google AdSense is the amazing program over the Internet. No other software program is making this much money as Google AdSense.
AdSense in combination with AdWords make literally $ 20 Billion + for Google every year… Yes, those are billions!
The day you install AdSense on your Website, Blog or Forum, it will make just a few dollars a month for you. But over the time, once the web traffic level on your web property increases, it will make money like hell for you. There are several Bloggers around the world who are making literally 6 figure income in dollars every year from their Authority Blogs.
What I like about AdSense is its Passive Income nature. I consider AdSense Income as the Passive Income (Even though the Government doesn’t count it as a Passive Income). This is because I have to work hard at once to write the Articles on this Blog and after that the money keeps flowing into my bank accounts without my effort every month. Suppose if I stop Blogging today; I will get the same amount of money every month (Fluctuating +/- 10%) for the rest of my life and even after that.
This is because the Information that I have already created on this Blog is valuable and as long as people will continue consuming this Information, the web traffic level on this Blog will remain the same and I will make money from my Blog. It’s like earning a Royalty by writing a book, play, or a movie script.
For example, suppose I write a paid review on my blog; this won’t be my Passive Income but the Active Income. This is because as long as I need money, I have to write and post more and more paid reviews on this Blog. And the day, I stop writing reviews, that Income will be totally lost.
And that is why I prefer ads. It’s the Online Passive Income. And I LOVE to develop passive income streams in my life.
