One of the biggest headaches internet entrepreneurs face is when they get the much dreaded Google slap, or getting banned from Google Adsense.
Google Adsense is probably the most common monetization method incorporated by website and blog owners to generate income from their online presence. Because the program is so simple to implement and effective, many online entrepreneurs often forget to diversify their online income streams and end up putting all their eggs in the Adsense basket.
The obvious recommendation is to diversify your income streams by pursuing other monetization avenues such as affiliate marketing, private ads, selling your own digital products and generating leads. But that is not what this discussion is about.
What if all your eggs are indeed in the Adsense bucket? What if that is exactly the way you like it to be and you deliberately designed your business model to do so? There is nothing wrong with that except your income stream or cash flow is more exposed to uncertainty, thus riskier.
I have several niche content websites that I have built over time that are specifically focused on generating income through the Google Adsense program. Every single website has done very well. Knock on wood, all is well in the relationship I have with Google, and I hope to never get the dreaded email from them ever. But what if?
Many are increasingly flocking toward the Adsense website model. I don’t blame them. I have not seen a program as effective and easy to implement than Adsense. In fact, there are some very effective programs online that help you establish websites that are specifically made for Adsense. But like I said, what if you get banned from Google Adsense?
In a previous post where I talked about the effects of the new changes in Google’s Algorithm, I displayed an image of my Google Adsense account. Steven was very observant in noticing that the account I displayed was different from another account which I have also displayed in a previous post.
How is that possible? “I thought Google didn’t allow multiple accounts” he asked in his email to me. That is a very good question, and the answer is both yes and no. I guess it “depends”.
One thing is for certain however. If you want to focus strictly on Google Adsense, and either have or plan on developing several web properties to do so, diversifying your income streams across several accounts is the best thing you can do to mitigate your cash flow risk resulting from getting banned from Google Adsense.
In a future post, I will talk about how you can legitimately establish multiple account to mitigate exposure resulting from getting banned from Google Adsense. to truly diversify your Adsense income streams and mitigate the risk resulting from getting banned from the Google Adsense program.
Have you ever been banned from Google Adsense? What happened? How did you overcome the fall back?Previous: How to Make Money With Paid Surveys Online
