Big Sky Web develop websites which have potential – if fit for purpose – to utilise Google Adsense to increase revenue from your website. But what is Google Adsense? Well, Adsense if like Google Adwords in reverse. Adwords customers effectively say to Google: “I’ll pay you (Google) to put my advert on the internet. Whether it be on search-engine results, or websites.” Adsense customers then come along and say: “I’ve got space on my website that I can let other’s advertise on. So, pay me every time the advert I allow on my website gets clicked on.”

So it’s pretty simple – Google will pay you for hosting adverts on your website or blog. Cool eh?

Here’s the bad news though. It’s only a good earner if your website gets a lot of visitors, or if you own many websites than cumulatively get a lot of traffic. The more traffic, the more likely people are to click on those adverts and for you to get your money! So for trending blogs, information websites, social networks, forums, classifieds, ecommerce stores etc etc – Adsense is a great addition. However for small websites which get very few views – it’s not so great.
