ROTE 024: Dave Taylor Pays His Mortgage with Google Adsense

Do you remember the first time you were introduced to the internet? It was most likely severals years ago, but most likely no where near the birth of the internet… or world wide web.

Nearly just as important as that first time you were introduced to the internet, you probably also remember the first time you made money online.

For many of us, Google Adsense was a great and easy way for us to learn how to start making money online. Google does all the hard stuff, and if have quality traffic flowing through our sites we can make a good amount of money on the site. Some sites even use Google Adsense as their main source of revenue and can even pay off their car payments, mortgages and more!

Yes, the internet, world wide web and Google Adsense each go back well over ten years in age… but they still keep progressing and giving us new opportunities in time.

This is exactly what we are going to be talking about in the latest episode of the Rise of the Entrepreneur.
