In this lesson I teach you everything from start to finish about Google Adsense so you can make the most passive income from your website.
The specifics taught in this video include how to apply for a Google Adsense account, how to set up new Adsense units, the best size and placement for top Adsense CTR (click through rate), and how to add tracking with Google Analytics. I also include advice on how to keep your adsense account safe and from inadvertently becoming banned.
Update: Google Analytics no longer shows all the keywords bringing traffic to your websites, so I now recommend using Clicky. Clicky shows all the information that Google Analytics used to show, is just as easy to install, and I actually find it more user-friendly. I now use both tools.
For tracking keywords, I recommend using SerpBook. 😀

Here are the best Adsense unit placements for a WordPress website and code for each:
Top right of post (336 x 280 large rectangle) code:

Bottom of post (336 x 280 large rectangle) code:
Sidebar in widget (160 x 600 wide skyscraper) code with widget titled “Ads by Google”:
These sizes and placements will give you excellent CTR but keep your Google Adsense account safe because the placement isn’t too spammy.
