1. Quick Definition Of Adsense And Affiliate

Google Adsense

It’s one form you sign up for with Google, like confirming that Google has your blog, website, and website eligible and able to distribute ads from Google Adwords if approved. Different sizes will display on your website, each time the visitor clicks on the ad, you will receive the money.

It is your going to promote the product of another person, another company to share the profits with them. This form is popular all over the world, especially in developed countries. You do not need products, no customer care, no need to hand over products to customers, your only job is to promote products to receive commissions.

2. The Content Of Your Blog Affects The Choice Of Monetization Form

As I said at the beginning, there are many different forms of making money websites, it also depends on your ability, knowledge, and ability to develop.

For example, if you are a complete newbie, then you can not fly into a blog or tutorial on WordPress or a blog about SEO and Affiliate promotion because you do not have the knowledge to share, the reader will do not trust you.

You have to spend a lot of time to learn, practice, have experience, have new knowledge so that can write.

Forms related to technology, online marketing or making money are difficult topics, requiring you to have experience before you can make a blog. So if you are new to MMO, get into these genres right now, or you’re a genius, or you’re a top-class chaser.

But can you be an expert in another field? It is possible because there are a lot of fields, and there are many areas that require a short period of time to understand and be able to develop blogs as forms of self-development, or you are already good at foreign languages, gymnastics, etc.

If you feel you are not good or knowledgeable about anything, so blogs, funny blogs, funny clips,… are topics that anyone can do.

And with the two forms of adsense and Affiliate, the choice of which form to start making money also depends greatly on the content of your blog, I will soon sort out the following.

3. Make Money With Blogs That Are Capable Of Attracting High Traffic

Every day you surf Facebook, you can see the site, blog like this on the Internet, the link as the image below are all news blogs, sensational news. In general, it is informative and entertaining, while others are online newspapers or blogs that are translated from abroad.

And it’s easy to see that nobody is going to promote affiliate products or even personal products under these blogs, but most of them will place Google ads or ads from other networks.

Why is that so, there are a number of reasons:

  • News and entertainment blogs are not focused on a particular area, but customers who buy affiliate products only rely on sites that focus on the topic of the product they are buying.
  • Visitors from these websites are also crooks, not directed at people from a specific niche.
  • Sites such as this are for entertainment purposes, providing information, not having the confidence to create conversions, because with Affiliate Marketing, when a customer purchases, they need 1 (or 1 expert group) that introduces the product, not from the newspapers like these.

So, Google Adsense is a great choice for blogs, news, entertainment, because they often attract more visitors. And with Google Adsense, the more visitors, the more you have. money. Visitors to the website, read the news, see clickable ads and you will receive money.

Example Adsense ads like the below red circle:

Affiliate will not be appropriate, the reason I mentioned above, I have not seen anyone doing news sites that promote affiliate products either. If so, because they may be new or their website has not been approved by Google Adsense and they are trying to find another form of monetization other than Google Adsense.

4. Are You A Blog Expert In A Certain Field?

You are good at SEO, you are good at WordPress, you are good at Video Marketing, Content Marketing, Designer, you are a specialist in running, fitness, beauty, cuisine,… or you are writing a blog to guide, share your knowledge for everyone?

At this point, you should think of making money through Affiliate Marketing because Affiliate is now popular in almost all areas. Although you can still make money with Google Adsense. But in my opinion, the Affiliate will be more potential and will bring you a better income.

And if you are a good person then besides Affiliate, you can create your own product to sell or open the service. However, in this article, I am just comparing between Affiliate and Adsense. So I will not talk more about creating and selling self-made products and services.

I do not naturally advise you to choose Affiliate without any reasons, below is the answer.

First, when you focus on building a blog about a particular niche, usually blog knowledge, learning, experience… but these blogs do not attract as much traffic as entertaining sites. As a result, making money with Google Adsense is not potential.

The few but unique visitors that find your blog are the “knowledge” and not the entertainment needs, and you can completely rely on their needs to make money. They can read your articles, trust what you recommend to serve their needs in the field they are inquiring about.

For example, your blog is a travel blog, sure readers in may or may be traveling to find out where to go or where they are going to have to play, then you can completely register Affiliate for hotels, or booking air tickets, tours,…

Or if your blog is in the field of sharing the site experience and tips WordPress, you can completely make affiliate hosting providers, domains, or paid interfaces and plug-ins,…

Second, Google Adsense ads are misleading, many people do not work in the field as we do so they do not know which ads are displayed by Google or your referral.

And if you build blogs in a certain field and your website has steady traffic, if you put Google Adsense, you will be targeted ads for some services in the field that you are doing. Because Google Adwords has a target function to display ads on the website.

If you are building your personal brand, you should not put Google Adsense at all, because many times the AdSense ads on your website are the bad product or service or the ads from your opponent. , so you accidentally have PR product or website for others under your credibility. It is okay for people who know it is from Google, but most people who do not work in the field will not know.

You can also see personal branding blogs, whose quality content will never place Google Adsense, which is almost as they do Affiliate or sell products, services of the individual, PR for their brands.

5. In Addition To Google Adsense, You Should Choose Affiliate To Make Money

There is no denying that Google Adsense is a method of making money online with a very prestigious website that is long-term, passive income with a large number of potential, however, if you only choose Google Adsense to do, you are missing a huge treasure from Affiliate Marketing.

If you are a newcomer then getting accepted from Google Adsense is very difficult, so you should also consider getting started with Affiliate Marketing in parallel with building and waiting for approval from Google Adsense.

Here are some of the most basic reasons why I recommend you.

You are new – not easy to sign up for Google Adsense

If you are new to MMO, if you want to get a Google account to make money, you need to have a website, and the website content should be useful to users and ensure to meet the Google’s request.

It is not easy for a newbie to get a complete website and meet all the criteria, but it is time to learn and practice.

With Affiliate, you have many options. With Adsense, you will have to depend on Google

Website development is becoming more and more popular and everything becomes more and more competitive. Anything related to Google, SEO or Google Adsense will also change with new algorithms.

Moreover, the “bad play” in the field of Google Adsense is pretty much, even many people also write tools to click the ad of the opponent, making Google mistakenly you are trying to click on your own ads to receive money.

And if your Google Adsense account is banned one day, it’s no surprise, your earnings are down, you need to spend a lot of days getting another AdSense account and investing a lot of money. It’s not like your income is being sourced from Google.

At this point you should think of another way to make money, Affiliate Marketing will be the next best option when the rate of play is much less than Google Adsense. And with an Affiliate, there are countless networks or Affiliate Marketing programs that you can choose from.

In the same area, there will be a lot of products from different affiliate programs for you to promote, you do not have to depend solely on a single program.

Affiliates can help you better in one area

The rule of the Affiliate is, the better you are, the deeper you know about the field you are doing, then you will be more trusted and buy products through your affiliate link.

For example, you are doing Affiliate Marketing for the WordPress source code field, forcing you to learn about WordPress, giving your tutorials, reviews and experiences to everyone.

As a process, your knowledge will improve over time, and once you are good at being an expert in a certain field, you will realize that one way or another, you can properly earn money, much money from the field.

Google Adsense also helps you better, especially SEO skills or navigating traffic from social networks but the opportunity, potential for improving yourself, developing specialized skills, marketing skills are not better than Affiliate because when you make Affiliate as you are selling your product, you have to find ways to get customers.

6. Google Adsense Or Affiliate Marketing Earn More Money?

There will be no answer to this question, as there are people making money with Google AdSense better, earn from Affiliate less, but also many people reverse.

This feature not only exists in the two areas of Google AdSense or Affiliate but it is also a common feature for making money online, and even in real life. Each person is born gifted, characteristics, strengths so a person may not fit in this field but good in another field, it is normal.

Maybe you like Google Adsense but not suitable for it, you do forever without earning money then you should try with another form, maybe Affiliate Marketing or selling T-shirts make money with Facebook Ads.

But with the money online, in any form, you also need to do your best for a long time, you can see the results, new feel that you have or not. It does not make you feel like “I’m not fit” for a few times. If you have read my online money making series for beginners, I also mentioned that, with any form of MMO, MMO is a long process.

7. Conclusion

Make money with Google Adsense or Affiliate Marketing are good paths, are the forms of online money prestige and long-term. If you have good thinking and rational development strategies, these two forms are the gold mine for you to exploit.

Google Adsense will be suitable for sites with the potential to attract traffic, Affiliate is suitable for specialized sites.

You cannot ask “which way to make more money,” because of whatever form, earn more or not is up to you but all are just the way. Doing good or not, knowing how to optimize your revenue is by your decision, not by form.
