After years from discovering sources of online income for online writers and other online bloggers (aside from writing with some sharing revenue sites) - there are other ways to make money online like shareAsale, infolinks, chitika, adnow, duda and other affiliate programs that make money. However, among them I found out that Google AdSense is the best to monetize your website or blog site.

Make money with Google AdSense

The hidden knowledge on how to make money through Google AdSense is no longer a secret. There are four major sources to making money through Google AdSense. If you applied for Google AdSense for your websites or for your blog sites - you better take note the following sources that make actual money for your websites or blog sites. They are what advertisers bid on when they buy your Ad-Space and also to understand the net users interactions that actually make you money.

4 major sources that make money on Google AdSense

The four major sources that make you money using the Google AdSense are as follows:

  • CPC
  • CPM
  • CPE

What is CPC? It means Cost-per-Click. It is the amount you earn each time a user clicks on your ad. The CPC for any ad is determined by the advertiser. Some advertisers may be willing to pay more per click than others, depending on what they are advertising.

What is CPM?

It means Cost per 1000 Impressions. Advertisers running CPM ads set their desired price per 1000 ads served and pay each time their ad appears. As a publisher/owner of website or a blog site you will earn revenue each time a CPM ad is served to your web page or blog site page and viewed by a user. Take note: CPM ads compete against Cost-per-Click (CPC) ads according to Google AdSense Department.

What is CPMAV?

It means Cost per Mille Active View. This is another bid types, highlighting that advertisers now have a new way to bid on your ad inventory. This is currently referred to as Active View CPM in Google Internal Help. CPMAV are the bids that are being made on a viewable impression basis only. The CPMAV closing price has been much higher than CPM bids. Even with the lower CTR (ClickThroughRate) that has brought up Ad request RPM (Revenue per Thousand Impression). Active View metric might be number to keep an eye on if you hope to attract higher paying CPM rates.

What is CPE?

It means Cost-per-Engagement. With this type of bidding, advertisers only pay when users actively engage with ads. For example: Advertisers pay for lightbox ads (a type of expandable ad that can expand to a very large size) on a CPE basis, which means that publishers/websites owners or blog sites owners generate earnings from lightbox ads when net users choose to engage with the ads by hovering over them for at least two seconds to expand the ads.

Do not apply fraud to make money on Google AdSense

Online writers or Online bloggers who are running their own websites or blog sites are considered publishers. You should enjoy this kind of online opportunity where you can actually earn money from publishing your written articles and other stuff to your owned websites or blog sites through Google AdSense. In addition, do not apply fraud just to make more money on Google AdSense. You will be punished or be banned from using Google AdSense. Always apply honesty to any business you are about to venture online.
