One of the top questions I get is “How do I make money online?”. In 2011, I’ll be launching a course on how to supplement your income or possibly replace it. This won’t be a get rick quick scam using Adsense but these days, any amount of $ helps.
I’ll give you the basic info and tools to monetize your passion. One of the 1st mistakes people make when starting a business is getting in to something your not passionate about. You must be passionate about it because it will take hard work and there will be NO money at first. Hell, there might not even be ANY MONEY MADE. Your endeavor may fail as the success rate for business is 50% at best. So why even try? Why not? Instead of watching TV for 2 hours a day, you should be able to get started. I’ll be providing worksheets, guides and case studies from my own personal experience. Enter your email below to keep updated. Thank you
Google recently started testing the waters with “interest” based advertising in hopes to provide more interesting ads and of course higher CTR (click through rates). Basically, if you like MySpace themes, you can add it to your interests and adds will show up. While I don’t think many people will use this because they see ads as obtrusive or have become “Adsense blind” and it wouldn’t matter to them, I do see the purpose of it. I think this blows away any company that uses “Interest” and “User demo” based advertising as their business model such as these guys.
Privacy issues? Google answers some questions and provides transparency on the Google Blog post.
This kind of tailored advertising does raise questions about user choice and privacy — questions the whole online ad industry has a responsibility to answer. Many companies already provide interest-based advertising and they address these issues in different ways. For our part, we’re launching interest-based advertising with three important features that demonstrate our commitment to transparency and user choice.
Transparency – We already clearly label most of the ads provided by Google on the AdSense partner network and on YouTube. You can click on the labels to get more information about how we serve ads, and the information we use to show you ads. This year we will expand the range of ad formats and publishers that display labels that provide a way to learn more and make choices about Google’s ad serving.
Choice – We have built a tool called Ads Preferences Manager, which lets you view, delete, or add interest categories associated with your browser so that you can receive ads that are more interesting to you.
Control – You can always opt out of the advertising cookie for the AdSense partner network here. To make sure that your opt-out decision is respected (and isn’t deleted if you clear the cookies from your browser), we have designed a plug-in for your browser that maintains your opt-out choice.
