      Hi Ronit

      You need to use Admob. You can create an account here: Admob is a google product and the procedure is similar to adsense with the difference that the ads are shown in mobile applications (for example android or iPhone apps) and not mobile websites. If you want to show yours ads on the mobile friendly version of your website, you should use Adsense instead.

      Hope this helps

    Your article is very informative for everyone who is beginner in this field. I have read your article from its first line to last line. It is remarkable.
    I have one question that is raised in my mind.
    “What is current ranking algorithm of google”
    Best regards,

  2. Alex says


    Thank you for you nice comments.

    Google is using an algorithm (a set of rules) to determine which web sites to show in their search results and in what position to show each website. This the known as the “Google ranking algorithm”.

    To make money from Adsense you need Google organic traffic i.e. traffic coming to your website from the Google search results. Assume that your website has a good ranking position now on Google and you get traffic and make money from adsense since some of your visitors click on your ads. If Google changes their algorithm and you no longer rank in the fist positions of Google, your adsense income will also be negatively affected.

    Hope this makes sense,

    Hi Alex,

    Thanks for your valuable article which made me clear on Adsense earnings. I had no picture about this process neither google explained so very well. After reading your article I finally realized that whatever website we make should attract the traffic only then we’ll be able to make money from Adsense which means our website should be popular and have attractive material for users. So thanks once again to make it very clear.

    I just want to clear up a point which is causing me some confusion since I have heard conflicting stories elsewhere. Does Adsense pay ONLY when an ad is clicked on or does it pay for simply displaying ads on a blog?

    Detailed effective guide for newcomers who want to start earning through blogging using AdSense. I have been an AdSense publisher for the last five years but payments have never been received and the reason is simply inconsistency in blogging. I hope this time I will be regular and earn some money. Thanks a lot…

  22. Pet2301 says

    hi, thanks for the article. I have been using adsense for a few weeks, but I really have a problem with the sort of ads that appear on my website. I used a VPN to see if it would make any difference if I were (presumably) in a different location, but it doesnt mae a difference. In the topbar (above the fold) as well as in the bottom bar i see these realy obnoxious looking txt ads with huge black letters, and then even two or three under each other, while I made space for just 1 ad. I tried to block many txt ads but that is very laborious work, removing one by one, which I think Google replaces again the next day with new ones. I am at my wits end. How do I get nice looking ads that fit my website?

    • Alex Chris says


      Just give the AdSense system some time to ‘learn’ more about your website’s structure and content and soon you’ll see that the ads will be improved. After the learning phase, the system will deliver better ads for your users.

      Hope this helps

  23. Marija says

    The article is great but I have one issue with Adsense that no one seems to address.
    I have a blog on blogger that is also being owned by Google and in this case, I can’t do anything you are suggesting until I get a message in a special tab of the blog where it will be stated that my blog is acceptable for AdSense. Until then I can’t do anything and more importantly, don’t know what I am doing wrong or how to improve.
    so basically just waiting in vain I think…
    any advice?
