I will be getting my first check from Google Adsense in a few weeks, and I have to say I'm thrilled. To actually get paid by Google for writing is a very big accomplishment in my books, and I think I'll definitely have to copy and frame a copy of my first check.

It means that I write articles ( usually over at a site called HubPages but I also have a blog) and Google advertisers place their ads on my sites. Now before anybody goes off thinking hey I could do that, please keep in mind that Google Adsense has very strict rules and violations can cause you to loose your account if you violate terms of service. Fraudulent behavior can ban you immediately and this is a very serious thing when you work with Google.

I have to admit, that when I first signed up for Google AdSense, I wasn't sure that I could really make money from it. Now I can see that it is possible with time and perserverance.
I have had Google AdSense on most of my websites for about two years now and I couldn't be happier. I don't make a ton of money using the service but it's something and it makes writing the articles I do that much more rewarding. Of course I want to create great content, but knowing how the keywords and topics that will get views is a must and using AdSense teaches you that. You learn how to write better articles and you strive to have the best content that will gain revenue. … more
