Monetize a blog

A blog can serve the content creator to generate an economic amount according to the number of visits and interactions by users. This can be achieved, for example, by associating a Google AdSense account with the blog.

Google AdSense is responsible for allowing a number of companies to place their ads on the blog; For each impression or click on them by visitors, there will be a remuneration to the blog owner.

Of course, there are limitations and requirements for the generation of this payment to be carried out favorably for the creator. They must be read and followed to the letter.

It is advisable that any content to be published is not offensive to people’s susceptibility and sensitivity . It is advisable to heed the warnings in this regard before misunderstandings occur in the future.
