#1 Google AdSense
Yes, One of the oldest and easiest way to monetize your blog. You can set up your Google AdSense Account here.
Google AdSense works on Display and Pay Per Click Model of Google Ad technology. There are two sides to it, Publisher, and Advertiser. The advertiser is the one who Pays Google the ad cost, once anyone clicks on the ad which is shown on the website or Google Display Network Websites (GDNW). The Publisher is the one, who owns the website, so in this case, we (Publisher) will get a commission from Google, when someone clicks on an ad that is served on our website by the advertiser. Simple, right? Go try it out yourself. BUT, Before hopping with excitement, let me show you what AdSense wants from you today :
- The PPP Request (Please, Please, Please), whenever you apply for an AdSense account, make sure you have valuable content on your website (Atleast 20 Blog Posts and Normal Traffic)

“Karan, I love Digital Marketing, but Tech Websites make a lot of money. I want to start with that”.
Believe me, Start writing on what you like doing, first. This will give you inner peace and you will be able to add more value to the end consumer of your content.
After you are confident, start with your ‘Expansion’ mindset and infuse all your affiliate links and make a website just to ‘MAKE MONEY’.
But…, build a list, NOOO! Don’t prepare a Shopping list, but an EMAIL LIST (Whenever I bold something, It is IMPORTANT for you to start taking action on it right away!)
Building an Email List will give you the traffic that you can control and Nurture. The end goal, of course, is to sell and make money by promoting affiliate offers and your own products.

“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
