Google Adsense is one of the most popular ways to make money online.
It is fast, simple, and easy to set up. No wonder it is the default monetization for many content websites.
If you are a writer, a webmaster or a content developer looking to monetize your content or website, then Google Adsense may just be the solution for you.
There are many website owners in Nigeria already making more than 100,000 Naira per month, and you could join that clique if you follow the right path.
In this post, I’ll be showing you the simplest way to make at least 100k Naira via Adsense without breaking a sweat.
You will learn to develop high-quality content platforms that help you make good money and how to monetize them to generate income via Google Adsense.
Let’s dive in.
How Much Can You Make on Google Adsense in Nigeria?
You could make 50k Naira per month,100k Naira per month, or even more.
But to be honest with you, if your content is not positioned well enough you could be making nothing from Google AdSense.
The most important factor that determines how much you make via Adsense is the amount of traffic you generate on your website.
Traffic is the number of people coming to your website on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis.
The more traffic you have coming to your website, the more you could earn via Google AdSense.
For example, all things being equal, a website with 5,000 users per day would make more money via Adsense than a website with 500 users per day.
Making money on Google AdSense is all about generating a huge number of high-quality traffic to your content website. If you can do just that, you would start generating a good income from AdSense.
How to Generate Traffic for Your Website
There are several ways to generate traffic for your website. Some are free while others are paid.
You could get traffic from social media, blogs, WhatsApp, search engines, physical advertising, radio or TV advertising, etc.
It depends on your resources and what you are willing to do to generate traffic for your website.
The Best Website Traffic is Free
There are people who have tried arbitraging traffic by buying advertising that encourages people to click on AdSense adverts.
Google frowns at this and would not waste time to clamp down such websites.
Even though you could use paid advertising to quickly grow your website, I believe organic growth is the best path for Google AdSense monetized websites.
That is why I believe the best website traffic is free.
You could generate free traffic from social media such as Facebook and Twitter, while optimizing your content to do well on search engines such as Google.
Google loves good content, so once they see that your website is high quality, they will start promoting you and giving you free traffic, which can be monetized.
Types of Google Adsense Approved Websites
There is no one size fits all for websites that can be monetized via Google AdSense.
As long as a site contains high quality content, it can be monetized with AdSense.
Here are some of the types of Websites that AdSense do approve for monetization on their platform.
AdSense love blogs. Infact, the majority of the approved websites on Google AdSense are blog websites. They generate a lot of high value content and are information based.
Classifieds websites are like online marketplaces. They generate a lot of traffic because people love eCommerce. Websites like Jiji are classified websites and they make money with AdSense on the side.
Forums are the easiest way for generating content from other people. It comes in the form of message boards where people could discuss different topics. While forums are a good source of content for AdSense, you may need to moderate the activities of users in order to avoid spamming and foul content.
- Social Networks
Social networks are hard to build, but if you can pull it off, they are a great way to generate traffic for Google AdSense. People spend a lot of time on social networks looking to socialize and make friends. If you can build a high quality social network, you will be able to make lots of money from Google AdSense.
Directories are money spinners. They generate a lot of traffic that can be monetized via Google AdSense. They list businesses online and help the real owners claim them. When people search for businesses, companies and public places online, they go to directories to confirm the ownership and contacts of these businesses. This means that a lot of traffic is generated this way, which can be monetized.
The Simplest Way to Quickly Monetize Your Website
There are many ways to build content websites for Google AdSense, which could help you make a reasonable income online.
However, there is a simple method that helps you do it fast by positioning yourself as an expert or market leader, and quickly growing your website traffic.
The method is called Niching.
With Niching, you focus your website on just one area of interest. It doesn’t matter the kind of website you are building.
A blog? A social network? A forum? If you can focus your content on one area, then the website can grow quickly and become a market leader in that one area.
That is the ridiculously simple method I use to build and grow content websites from scratch.
You don’t have to know or love the topic, as long as you can find the person or people that would help you generate content, then you are good to go.
In the case of social media, you don’t even need to generate any content. You just have to find a good niche. I’ve seen social network niches such as Christian dating, Muslim dating, corporate dating, University dating, etc. These are all niches. They are quite different from be-all social networks such as Facebook.
So, you have to find a niche for your website if you want to quickly grow it and generate reasonable traffic that you can monetize via Adsense.
How Long Does it Take Before Monetizing Your Website With Adsense?
You should monetize your website once you already have reasonable traffic.
Now, what is reasonable traffic? Some would say 100,000 pageviews per month, others would say 1,000 pageviews per day.
A good way to do this is to work on your website for at least 6 months. If you genuinely put in the right effort to growing your website in 6 months, you should already have reasonable traffic that you can monetize via Adsense.
How You Can Earn At Least 100k Naira Per Month With Google AdSense
If you already have a blog with traffic, then you can calculate or estimate how much you can make per month with AdSense in Nigeria.
Even if you don’t have a website yet, but you are curious about how you can make at least 100,000 Naira per month with Google AdSense, there is a way to get an estimate.
I’ve made all the calculations here about what number of pageviews and users you need per month to make at least 100,000 Naira via Adsense. You can take a look at my calculations in that post and make your estimates from it.
