Google is nothing but an online encyclopedia encompassing extensive knowledge, information, wisdom, cognition. You name it.
When I started using the internet the first thing I heard was Google – the word that carries no meaning but is a tool that gives your words a valuable meaning and comes up with the relevant search results on the top.
It is, no doubt, the best search engine when it comes to finding the solution for anything, be it related to news, technology, health, online earning, and science whatsoever.
You are at home, a certain query pops up in your mind, you find haven nowhere but surfing the Google outright.
This platform is very handy in terms of ease of use that gives the opportunity to a plethora of people to make ends meet.
You may be wondering if you can make decent income using Google.
The answer is YES, definitely.
You can earn with this platform as long as you know the tips and techniques to use it effectively.
If you come up and visit Google with an idea to hunt down get rich schemes overnight, I’m afraid your expectations will be thrown in the towel.
Google itself started earning SIX years after its inception. Yes, FULL SIX YEARS.
Google was introduced by Larry Page and Sergey Brin in 1996, both were Ph.D. students at Stanford University at that time. They submitted it as a privately owned entity later, on the 4th of September 1998.
An initial public offering (IPO) was initiated on August 19, 2004, and Google shifted to its headquarters in Mountain View, California, nicknamed as Googleplex.
Until 2001, how much did Google make? Yes, you guess that right – almost nothing.
It was the perseverance, grit, and dedication of the people that helped this platform grow skyrocket within a few years.
Google generates its main revenue with advertising.
The ad scheme it comes with is widely known as AdSense. Moreover, it has also introduced two other principal methods, called AdMob, and DoubleClick AdExchange. And 46% of the mainstream revenue comes from CPC (cost per clicks).
Google allows the publishers to put Adsense on their sites that works similar to any advertisement running on television or radio.
As the visitor comes over, visits certain pages of the site and clicks on the available ads, Google gives part of the commission to the publisher.
According to qz.com
“Revenue at Google’s parent company rose 25% during the second quarter of 2018, compared with the same period last year. It generated $26.24 billion, excluding traffic costs paid to partners, the company said (pdf) today, July 23. Earnings also soared to $11.75 a share, from $8.90 a year ago—excluding a recent $5 billion fine from European regulators.”
Google is mainly related to Internet-related services and products, covering online advertising technologies, software, hardware, search engine, and cloud computing. It has secured a spot in big four technology giants including Apple, Amazon, and Facebook.
There are almost 85,050 employees working in the world’s biggest search engine right now. And it is reported that it gets 2700 resumes per day and only traction of them gets through the eligibility criteria.
I believe this is enough to help you learn what Google is, how it got started, and how it works nowadays.
When you are just starting out with the aim to make money using this search engine, your mind may get flooded with a bundle of questions like can I earn money using this program while sitting at home? Or can I make money from Google without investment? How to make money without a website? We will be discussing each and everything one by one.
Let’s jump right in and get started.
5 Bulletproof Ideas To Earn With Google
Following are some mainstream ideas to earn with Google.
1. Earn with Google maps
You can earn $25 to $40 daily with Google maps. Here, you’ll search for potential businesses and help them grow their traffic by setting up their campaigns on Google.
All you need is to type Google maps on Google.
A window will open up, go to the top left corner and in the search bar look for any local business in your area.
Google will show the website of that particular business. Go to their website and see if they are getting any traffic from paid campaigns. You can use SemRush to check paid traffic.
This tool allows you to do 10 free searches per day. Just make an account over there and enter the business website you aim to target and see if they are getting any paid traffic.
If paid traffic is zero, you can call that business and offer your services. Ask them how you would like if I drive 100 visitors per day over your website.
If you are starting out the very first time, it is wise to do some online courses related to running ad campaigns. It will help you set up the campaign like a pro.
You need to create a Google ad account for running ads. It was named as Google AdWords before now it is termed as ads Google. Make an account over there and start running campaigns for a particular business.
There is another way to see if the business is running any campaign on social media. As Google is not the only place to get traffic. Facebook ads are taking a rage in terms of driving huge traffic.
Just install the chrome extension called “pexel helper” As you enter the business website, this browser extension will show if business comes with any Facebook pixel that highlights if they are running Facebook ads. Of course, you don’t like to target the business that is already running ads on social media.
2. Create a mobile app
With the recent surge in mobile technology, more people are shifting from desktop computers to smartphones.
Creating your own Android and launching it over Google play store is another way to claim a bunch of bucks on daily basis.
Android users outnumber iOS users three times. There is a huge earning potential using Google play store for making Android apps.
You can make money two ways by launching your apps.
- In-app purchase
You can allow visitors to download your app free of cost. After that, you can offer services for premium members. In order to charge for your premium service, make sure you provide quality service in exchange for money.
Otherwise, people won’t be reviewing you better and there is a wide chance you lose your credibility sooner than later.
- In-app advertising
More often than not, people who create apps earn with displaying ads on their app. The more click on you get on available ads, the more you can earn.
- Earn with AdMob
Google never fails to satisfy their potential publishers by rolling out new ways to make money online. AdMob is a remarkable addition by Google.
AdMob allows you to make money through your app. In this platform, you have options to display multiple ads ranging from banners, text to video ads.
It is performance based software and comes with the general category to filter out and customize the nature of ads as per your needs and requirements.
Earning potential is based on a number of factors. Your app reviews, feedback, and user experience grossly influence your earnings.
3. Google surveys
Some companies give you nothing in exchange for completing the surveys, however, when it comes to working with Google, you can surely trust this platform.
There are two ways you can earn by completing the surveys.
- Google opinion rewards
First is by using Google opinion rewards. This is an app available in Google play store that gives you the surveys for completion as per the nature of your profile.
You won’t be getting surveys on daily basis, you will get them every now and then.
- Google user experience research program
Second is the Google user experience research program. This program will collect your information about the devices you use for research and the sites you use for surfing and anything related to Google that helps it boost their user experience and makes it more user-friendly.
Don’t fall prey into making 75$ or more per hour completing surveys, you can’t make this much.
And sometimes you’ll be getting gift cards which you can’t exchange for money, you can only use them virtually in exchange of something already available on Google play store or for shopping online.
Sign in with this program and optimize the future of Google as per your needs and requirements.
4. Google AdSense
Google AdSense is one of the lucrative and surest ways to make money with Google. It allows you to put ads of various businesses on your blog and get paid in return.
The more visitors come over and click the ad on your website, the more revenue you can generate.
Publishers get 68% of the total amount paid by the website displaying on your blogs, while Google takes 32% of this amount.
If you have an established blog, you can apply for Google AdSense. Some people do a mistake of applying for Google AdSense right away after making a blog. It doesn’t work this way. Your application will get rejected immediately if your blog is new with little to no traffic.
My own application was turned down once before getting accepted the second time. Go to Google AdSense and make an account. You need to wait almost from 48 hours to one week before you get an answer from Google.
They get plenty of applications every day and it is difficult for them to reply to everyone immediately after reviewing the applications.
5. Make money with Google AdSense without a website
Yes, you heard that right. You can still earn with Google even if you don’t have any blog or website. If you have good writing skills, you can make a few bucks and pay for your next meal.
There is a list of revenue sharing websites out there that share an AdSense commission with you. When you write an article for them, they post it on their platform and whenever someone clicks on the ads available on the written post, you get paid in return.
These sites are mainly called web 2.0 sites.
Squidoo is a well-known website that allows you to write an article for them. The posted articles on their platform are mainly called lenses. If you get reasonable traffic on your lenses, you will get a decent commission in return.
SheToldMe is another great website that works on a similar pattern like Squidoo. You will get paid for your written content.
There is another way to make money with Google AdSense without a website.
You can do a partnership with someone on YouTube, make videos and put on their channel. The number of views video gets, the more you come up with the chance to increase your revenue. If you have a solid grip on video making and editing skills, you can make decent income making videos.
Flixya is a revenue sharing website that pays 50% commission on uploaded video. Wherever you go and put your video, all that matters is traffic. Your revenue is directly proportional is the traffic you get on your particular video.
