Adsense is a great way to make money with your publication. Since AdSense is such an important part of Internet advertising, it is important that you know some basic information about it.
I was looking for a good definition of Adsense and the best that I found is from Wikipedia.
AdSense is an advertising program run by Google. Website owners can enroll in this program to enable text and image advertisements on their sites. These ads are administered by Google and generate revenue on a per-click basis. Google utilizes its search technology to serve ads based on website content, the user's geographical location, and other factors.
The way AdSense works is you sign up as an affiliate of the Adsense program. Adsense provides you with a snippet of HTML code that you insert in your web page where you want the Adsense ads to appear. Google reads the content of the page where the code is placed and it automatically places ads on the page that match the page’s theme or content.
When a reader clicks on an AdSense ad on your page, you receive income. All you have to do is allow the AdSense program on your pages and Google does the rest. It is an ingenious system to make money with your publication and is one that has revolutionized advertising on the Internet.
I am going to include a set of Adsense ads at the end of this page paragraph so you can see what they are. I know that you have seen them on many Web pages, but you may not have known what they were. They are a good way to make money with your publication.
Here they are .........

It will probably not happen on your first issue, but as you build your circulation, people and businesses will pay you to place their ads in your publication.
Move Traffic to Your Other Web Sites
Some people use their publications to drive traffic to their other websites. You will notice on the Boomer eZine that we publish, our associated websites are links at the bottom of the page. This attracts people to click on them and check them out. We also make reference to the other sites occasionally when we have something of interest on them.
If you have items for sale on the other sites, this is indirectly selling using your publication.
