Welcome to another day of tips to help you in your journey of starting a website, getting it set up and ready to earn you money from Google Adsense.
Today’s post talks about which types of websites you can create that are most likely to earn you the most money from Google Adsense or other ad networks like media.net.
Remember, Google Adsense doesn’t just place ads on the internet. It needs someone to advertise(Advertisers) and another place to put the ads(website publishers), which is where your website comes in.
So, a very good question most people like asking is, what kind of website should I make for Adsense?
Keep this in mind:
Although you need to pay the bills and maintenance cost for your website, you shouldn’t center your motive of coming online to just making money.
The point is, once you have a good website, all other things will follow naturally or organically like Google calls it.
Hope this makes sense to you.
Unfortunately, most people who become publishers don’t bother to prepare a roadmap for their website properly before jumping into the train.
One thing is to come in and make good money while the other is to come in and make little or no money at all.
You wouldn’t want the later, right?
You must have wondered, do I need a website to use Google adsense?
The answer is yes, you need a website.
And, can I just create any website and start making money from it via Adsense?
No. You can’t just create any website and start earning money via Google’s Adsense program.
Generally, the qualities of a website you need to create to be able to join Adsense and also make money from it are:
- A website that has a lot of quality and unique content and drives traffic.

When you create any website with intentions of joining the Adsense program, make sure that it adheres with Google AdSense policies.
Most importantly, read about the specific types of content that are not allowed with Google AdSense.
Google needs a very good website with quality and valuable content to put show ads on. And that’s what you will be doing.
You create good content publish it, drive traffic, advertisers bid for your ad space and voila, you make money for Google and your self when visitors interact with your content and the ads.
So, which type of website is best for you to create and start making money from Google adsense?
If you really want to monitize your website to make money online blogging, you need this information.
It’s a truth that almost all website owners use or love to use Google Adsense to monitize their website because it’s one of the most relaibel ways to make money online.
Here’s where things get a bit tough. All these websites earn money, but, there are some websites that consistently earn more money than others.
Which type of websites get higher revenue from Google adsense?
There are 3 types of websites that have always performed well with Google AdSense in terms of generating higher revenue. These websites are a blog, a forum and a free online tool.
If you are new to blogging, you will find it difficult to understand the difference between a blog, a forum, and a website that’s an online tool.
This article will specifically explain each of these Adsense favourite website types.
A blog is one of the most popular kind of websites which is best for you to create and start making money from Google adsense or any other ad network.
Now, what’s a blog and how does it help you to earn more from Google Adsense?
There are websites which have pages or contents that are static or rarely change. E.g of such sites are company websites, school portals for students etc.
As opposed to these kinda sites where the contents rarely change, blogs are websites with unique pages or contents that are consistently updated on a regular basis.
A blog’s update frequency could be every hour, day, week or even on a monthly basis. This website (myadsensetips.com) is an example of a blog because it’s frequently updated with fresh contents.
Popular blogs that you may know include Huffington Post, Mashable, Business Insider, LifeHacker, TheVerge, TechCrunch, Engadget, Gizmodo, CopyBlogger, DailyDot etc.
So, how is a blog website going to be a good source of revenue if monitized with Google Adsense?
Since the content of a blog is regularly updated, it keeps users coming and increases traffic which is one of the main factors that help improve your Adsense earnings or revenue.
Consequently, this is very attractive to advertises who pay to get their ads displayed on websites through Google Adsense.
With a blog, you literally have a launchpad that could take your online journey to greater height if it’s taken seriously.
Now, to the next big thing.
Another kind of website that is surely going to push your revenue high and faster with Google Adsense is a forum. It’s one of the best type of site you can create to generate AdSense revenue in a very pleasing way.
Let’s quickly explain what a forum is and how it can be a real source of income if monitized with an ad network like Google Adsense.
A forum site is a kind of website where one or more issues/points are written and several users or members exchange their views or ideas on the page.
It’s more like a website where people go to discuss on specific topics.
Unlike a blog where the content is created by a single person or team, a forum’s content can be created by an admin or any member or user on any specific topic and others can join in the discussion.
So, why is a forum a great website and how does it have big potentials for making money online?
A forum is highly active and the contents are mostly user generated via discussions on specific topics. With the consistent activity and dynamic contents, a forum could easily amass plenty of content and traffic/views which is what helps a website generate revenue.
Adsense works well with good contents and traffic. A forum has that potential naturally.
When it comes to forums, you will just create a content on a particular topic and then find users to engage with you in those discussions. As time goes on, more and more people will find it and join in the discussion.
Provided your forum is not against Adsense policies on contents generated by users, you’re already on your way to financial freedom via your forum.
When next you consider creating a website and monitise it in the future, consider having a forum, if possible.
A free online tool website
Another kind of of website that will be successful with adsense is a free online tool. A free online site is a webite that provide tools or functions that users can access and use online.
Example of such free online tools are an image resizer, image converter, pdf converter, image compression, math calculator, loan calculator, file hosting/downloading sites and many more.
If you could get developers to work on your idea, creating a site with a free tool that users or visitors can only access online is another way to earn a decent AdSense revenue.
Most of the free online tools mentioned above have become extremely useful and popular. They are always useful, attract users and get a lot of shares which makes free online tools a very good ground for website monitisation with Google Adsense.
So far, these sites are the best kinds of websites to launch and you will turn it into a stream of income.
But, you can’t just launch a site, get adsense and monitize it successfully without some really important tips.
These are simple but very powerful tips that will certainly keep your website directed properly and keep successful for as long as possible.
Three basic/important tips for any website to be successful with or without monetization are:
- Choose a trending topic or niche that people will be or are interested in
One common thing among all these websites (blog, forum, online tool) is content. It’s popularly said that content is king and that’s always going to be true as long as the internet exist.
No matter which type of site you choose to use with Google AdSense, you must have to make sure that the topic you choose and contents you create for blog, forum, or free online tool is actually something that a good number of people are interested in or will be interested in.
Your content should be one that people are already searching for. It’s these contents you create around a particular topic that will drive people to your blog, forum or online too, bring engagement or interaction with your content and make users to naturally click on your ads.
In all these, you stand a chance to keep earning more as your website keeps growing by giving your users useful and updated information.
Google already has a tool called AdWords/Keyword planner that you can use to see if a topic you are planning to create contents on is actually trending on Google search engine.
- Create useful contents and always keep it coming
Creating contents is one thing, creating useful and sharable contents is another thing. To make a successful website, you have to take your time and create contents that are very unique and valuable for the visitors who come to your website.
Once you create a few viral contents, you must keep adding new and useful contents tht people are searching for and will always do.
Create very interesting contents that are ever green. With such contents, you will always get users that will come to your website, interact with your content and definitely click on your ads which will generate revenue.
- Make it easy for people and search engines to find your website by promoting it
One of the first things you should do after putting some content on your blog is to help search engines and people to find your blog, forum or free online tool.
This promotion is neccessary to help visitors to find your blog, forum, or tool and then interact with it.
You can promote your blog, forum or online tool via social media like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest etc. Once your website gets a lot of social media shares and valuable links from other reputable sources online, it will ultimately appear in search engines and rank well.
All these will definitely increase your earnings faster once you monitize your blog, forum or online tool.
So far, we have talked about the best kind of websites to create if you intend to use Google adsense to monitize your website. Apart from Google adsense, you can still use other ad networks.
- What of I want my website to have all 3; a blog, forum and a tool?
You can have a website that has a blog, a forum and a tool on the same website. Let’s say you could have blog.yourdomain.com, forum.yourdomain.com and yourdomain.com/tool or whatever you want.
