AdSense is a legitimate way to make money online without spending a cent if you do it correctly.

Although affiliate programs are right up there with the best ways to make money online; AdSense is not far behind.

adsense-dollar1AdSense is relatively easy to set up and you can begin making money as soon as you direct some traffic to your website or blog.

Even if you have no knowledge of HTML, you can still make money with AdSense by creating a Hub Page or Blogger Blog, writing about subjects that are of interest to you and your target audience, and funneling some traffic to your site.

If you really want to start making a legitimate income with AdSense, create a number of websites and blogs that are specifically targeted to high paying keyword niche topics.

  • First, think about your topic.

If you are completely void of ideas, try typing “AdSense niche” into a Google search.
Then, to enable you to write content more easily, pick a topic that you are interested in or would like to learn more about.

  • Next, after you have found an AdSense niche you are interested in; use some of the many free keyword tools to do your keyword research.

Wordtracker and SEOBook, both have keyword tools you can use to research your niche, and find keywords that people search for that have little or low competition.

  • Next you can check the keywords you come up with, by entering them into a Google search.

This will show you how many websites match your keyword.  You can usually get better results from your searches, by placing your keywords in parentheses.

  • To make money with AdSense without spending a cent, you can set up a free website that has all the features of paid hosting with 000webhost.

000Webhost is a private service that provides free web hosting. They offer their free members up to 1500MB of web space, 100GB data transfer per account, email forwarding, domain hosting, php, and unlimited mysql databases which is perfect for WordPress.

000Webhost allows you to build multiple websites in one account, and multiple sub domains.

  • You can even get a free domain name from if you are really strapped for cash.
  • You can get free traffic to your AdSense site, by using social bookmarking sites.
  • Get more free traffic using the best of web 2.0 and use free directories by using Directory Submitter.

It takes some time to setup and acquire good quality content for your AdSense site, and sometimes a bit longer to make any money; but when you build a network of targeted niche websites or blogs with good content, your AdSense earnings will add up quickly.

For example, if you make about a dollar a day on your AdSense site; that’s alright to start with.  You can then set a goal to create a new quality AdSense website every week.

When you get to around 30 quality websites, and each one earns about a dollar a day; that comes out to $ 30 per day or $900. a month.

As your websites get older, your traffic increases, and you build more links to each site, you can expect to earn more than just a dollar a day from your AdSense ads.  You could be earning $5. a day from each website, which equates to $150. per day, or $4500. per month.

You can further monetize each website by including affiliate programs into the mix.

As you can see, AdSense is a legitimate way to make money online and can earn you a substantial income over time.
