What is Google AdSense?
Google AdSense is an advertising platform which entitles several publishers to fund their passion. It's one of the ways to earn money through Internet/the web, all legally.
An Adsense publisher is a person/company which is approved to run their ads. In web terminology, it's a Pay Per Click [PPC] ad network, infact the best one because it's almost five to ten times better than any ad network. That's why it has attracted a lot of people's attention and many are making their livelihood as a freelance blogger.
How does Google AdSense Works?
It's quite important for website owners to know how Google AdSense works. Complete details about it are provided in this post.
In simple words, AdSense publishers will get paid for the clicks on ads on their websites. It works on the basis of CPC [Cost Per Click] and EPC [Earning Per Click].

Purely that magical sum of Adsense figure has come after hard work. No, it's not luck. I know how many hours a day I put to get those achievements and fruits of your hard work are always sweeter.
