The Simplest Way to Get Online Passive Income
Based on my research, this seems to be the basic principle that website owners have been following to get passive income online:
- Get many people to come to your website
- Get them to click on your Adsense links
Sounds simple enough. Get people into your website from Google search, then link out to an Adsense Ad. Search In, Adsense Out.
Practically applying it to get sufficient commendable income, however, can be quite a challenge.
The first problem is how to get many visitors to your website.
That’s where Search Engine Optimization comes in. However, this is really easier said that done. It’s a bit of an artwork. You basically have to read the mind of an Internet user. What keywords would he use? Why would he visit your website? Do you have the content go get people interested enough to get to your website?
Basically, your goal is visibility. You have to be seen. You can do this using SEO or using traditional brand-building methods. Tell your friends, family and colleagues. If they have websites, politely ask if you could link with each other.
For those lucky few that are already on top of the search engines, this is not a problem. Others (including myself) would have to work hard at it. Look at FilipinoLinks.com. It’s been around for a very long time and has made quite a foundation. It would not be too difficult for its owners to tweak the website for SEO.
Experts have varied opinions on what to put in a website. Some say, put relevant important content, with around 500-1000 words on each of your website. Some say provide simple 300 word news posts.
Another option to get clicks would be to advertise online for keywords. Adwords is an example of a tool that can allow you to do this. There will be marketing expenses in this scenario. The goal here is to get more Adsense income than Adwords Expenses, which is really basic business sense. This is easier said than done, I tried it and got dismal results.
The next problem would be how to get visitors to click on Adsense links.
Well, the first thing that needs to be done is to get an Adsense account. It’s pretty easy to setup. After that, you need to put the Adsense links on your website. There are people who say make it blend it when the rest of your pages. Here, on my website, you can see my Adsense Ads that seem to be part of the overall theme.
Other experts say the more noticeable the advertisements, the more they will be clicked. In this case, the Ads stand out prominently, with a different, and sometimes contrasting color scheme. One tip given was actually position the Google Ad right next to an image/picture. Viewers tend to click on picture links, so more income potential income there.
In my point of view, it means opportunities. Although I have just started experimenting on all of this myself, there seems to be a real possibility of gaining revenue.
