That is as simple as it gets. If you don’t have a blog or website, don’t worry, I will explain to you how to get a free blog and start earning – how to make money with Adsense in South Africa

Adwords pay decent ad revenue for South Africans. With the Rand being weak to the dollar your ads get even more revenue in other countries.

If Canadians, Australians, Americans and people from England read your blog or website that has been monetized you make even more money as these countries are the top Adsense users and pay the highest bids.

Unlike YouTube (Which is also a product of Adsense) Websites generate much more income as websites are more specified and advertisers like their ad placement on monetized websites or blogs.

Applying for Adsense on your Website or Blog

Applying is very easy. You just need to log into your gmail account and head over to Adsense by searching so in Google. Click ad website or your blog’s URL and you will have to wait about a week to get approval.

How does Adsense work for South Africans?

Once you have a website or blog you need some traffic. Share you posts to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and as many social groups as possible to get fast traffic. I am not saying you need thousands of views everyday to get monetized, but you need to get a bit of traffic to get approved.

You should at least have 10 posts so that Google can learn that there is content on your website and what it is about. Google will not monetize your blog or website with just one post, you need content

Getting your website or blog approved by Google Adsense is not hard and as long as you stay withing their policies your webiste will be approved. Once you are approved you can place roughly 3 to 4 ads per page or choose auto placement in Google Adsense.

Ads will then start appearing on your website or blog. Do not, and I will say it again, do not click on your own ads as Google will ban your account fast.

How much can South Africans earn with Adsense?

This is where we as South Africans are lucky. The Rand is weak and we get paid in Dollars. So lets look at the ad revenue and also compare it to YouTube.

Depending on your niche, product, service or general topics Adsense will pay you accordingly.

So if you are a new blogger create content that will be associated with expensive ads. Let me show you the most expensive Keywords that Google Adsense will pay per 1000 views

Keyword Cost per Click

  • Insurance
  • Loans
  • Mortgage
  • Attorney
  • Credit
  • Lawyer
  • Donate
  • Degree
  • Hosting
  • Conference Call
  • Software
  • Classes
  • Treatment

These keywords can trigger ads of up to R100 per click. You read right. That is a lot of money for one click, but be assure that Google Algorithms is finely tuned so you can’t fool them. Also keep in mind that the traffic you receive will trigger different ads in different hours of the day.

So figure out what is the best time of day to share your post on social media to trigger ads. If you decide to share your ads at 02:00 in the morning you will surely get ads with low bids and that will have an impact on your revenue.

But how much can you really make with Adsense?

Since 2010 that I have started to monetize my YouTube and Websites Adsense revenue had a massive increase and that is good for South Africans

In SA you are looking to make around R70 to R120 per thousand views with a website and a blog whereas you would make around R20 per 1000 views on YouTube.

So if your post on a blog or website is doing well, let’s say a 1000 views per day, Google Adsense will pay you roughly R2850 per month. Now you can do the math and strive to work harder and do more quality posts so that Google can rank you higher that in turn will give you higher revenue.

To see an example on how Adsense will look on your blog or website you can visit some of my highest paid websites.

How do you get Paid with Adsense

As we all know Google is a legit company and one you can truly trust. Google pays you once a month around the 21st of each month. You need to have a threshold of R1000 or more to get paid. So if you are a new Adsense member and only made R800 for the month, it will be carried over to the next month.
