If you are looking for information on how to monetise a blog, you will often find yourself running headlong into a maze of confusing information.

Much of the help out there is directed towards people who already know quite a bit. So if you are like many others, there might be times when you find yourself feeling a little overwhelmed.

Most bloggers consider themselves to be thoroughly and unashamedly non-technically minded. So this should not preclude you from understanding about one of the most exciting and important tools: Google Ads.

What are Google ads for?

The first reasonable question you might ask about is what exactly are Google Ads for.

Because of its apparent ubiquitousness, you would be forgiven for thinking it’s the only platform out there. It’s not, but it is almost certainly the best and most powerful. However, the best and most powerful at what?

Bloggers use Google ads to advertise services or brands organically with the content on the page. Its popularity encourages a relationship between the website owner and the marketed business. Everyone’s happy, and as a result your blog is nicely monetised.

Making it easy

Even if you are not entirely sure what you need to set up a Google Ads campaign, this doesn’t mean that you can’t do it, or that you can’t use such a service for your blog or website.

In fact, it’s worth thinking about which things you can do to make it a lot easier. Probably the single best way to make everything easy is to automate the whole thing.

Automate Google Ads with no effort, and you will soon be up and running monetised pages without having to do anything. That’s great for beginners, and those who don’t want the hassle of doing it themselves.

Does it work?

The statistics of Google Ads provide the answer as a resounding ‘yes’. It’s incredibly popular, as it generates an incredible amount of money for many individuals, bloggers and businesses every day.

If you want a slice of the pie, then you can see how easy it is to set it up. No matter what, it does work – and you will find that you can hope to earn a lot of money from it in a short space of time.
