Monetizing with Google AdSense – A #ShoutersChat Recap

Monetizing with the Google AdSense

Google AdSense is one of the most popular methods of monetizing your blog or your website. Google AdSense is owned by Google and it is based on the idea of displaying advertisements which are on similar lines as the content on your blog.

The AdSense examines the content on your page and finds out the advertisements that suit your reader’s interest. AdSense allows you to add text, media and display good quality ads on your blog. Thus, giving you an edge and some extra money.

It gives you an amount of money that is recurring and that will come back every time AdSense hits your blog. Since AdSense gives you a recurring income, you should definitely target it first and then move onto different monetizing techniques to improve your revenue.

That’s why this week’s #ShoutersChat was: “Monetizing with Google AdSense”.

How to Get SMS Alerts for Gmail via Twitter

How do you get SMS notifications on your mobile phone for important emails in your Gmail? Google doesn’t support text notifications for their email service but Twitter does. If we can figure out a way to connect our Twitter and Gmail accounts, the Gmail notifications can arrive as text on our mobile via Twitter. Let me explain:Twitter allows you to follow any @user via a simple SMS. They provide short codes for all countries (see list) and if you text FOLLOW to this shortcode following by the  username, any tweets from that user will arrive in your phone as text notifications. For instance, if you are in the US, you can tweet FOLLOW labnol to 40404 to get my tweets as text messages.

In actual fact – there’s a minor bug in the tool. The address change is to the https version of (which GWT makes us register as a separate site) but that message incorrectly omits that. Fortunately, elsewhere in GWT its clear the omission is on Google’s side, not a typo from the SEO. It is most likely that the migration tool was developed before the need for Google to have separate verification codes for http and https versions of the site.
