If you are new to revenue sharing models or you’d like to know how you can make money with SeekSuccess, this section will provide you with all the necessary information. As I mentioned before, there are two ways to earn money with your content on SeekSuccess. In order to start earning, you have to enter your Google AdSense Publisher ID (Identification number) and your Amazon Tracking ID in the corresponding places in your earnings settings on your profile page (when you’re logged in). You’ll find the link to your earnings settings in the left sidebar – of course, this information will be visible only to you and it will never be shared with anybody.
How To Get Your Google AdSense ID
If you haven’t got a Google account and your personal Publisher ID, here are simple and easy-to-understand instructions to create your Google AdSense account.
You must have a Google AdSense account to get your Publisher ID. The submission for approval will be taken into consideration only if you have a website or blog, or a profile on a user-generated website such as SeekSuccess. Enter the URL of your SeekSuccess profile page if you don’t have your own blog or website. Your submission will be sent for approval to Google and the approval period may take up to two weeks. You also have to publish at least two articles on the site otherwise Google may not approve the account. To create your Google AdSense account, start here and follow the steps. Once your account has been approved, you’ll receive an email notification, and from there on, you can start using your ID. The 16-digit number will look something like this:
Enter your number in the earnings settings in your profile and Google will automatically pick it up and associate the content you generate on the site with your ID.
How Does Google AdSense Work?
Depending on the words you used in your content, Google will serve contextual ads on your web pages. SeekSuccess has optimized these ads in terms of size and placement, but we have no control on what ads will be served on your pages. Google serves the ads automatically and their value will depend on your position in the SERPs (search engine result pages).
When a visitor clicks an ad on your web page during the time when your Publisher ID is displayed (75% of time) you’ll earn a percentage of the value of that particular advertisement. Never click on your own ads and never encourage other people to do this. It’s a sure way to get your account banned and once that happens, there’s no way back – you can’t apply for a new account. Play by the rules and you’ll do just fine.
Spend some time learning about search engine optimization and keywords research, but don’t get lost or overwhelmed by all the new information; remember that high-quality content and active participation in the community are the best SEO strategies you can possibly implement to improve your web pages’ performance. Before you submit your content, check out the Google AdSense policies because you are obliged (as we are) to comply with their rules.
The Amazon Associates Tracking ID
You must have the Amazon Associates account to get your Amazon tracking ID. Navigate to their affiliate program page and click “Join now for free.” Follow all the steps in chronological order. If you are just getting started (you don’t have an Amazon associates Program) enter SeekSuccess as the name of your website (omit “www” in your URL). Come back to your profile page to enter the Amazon Tracking ID (you’ll get one when you finish the process of creating your account).
If you already have the account, you can create a new Amazon tracking ID for SeekSuccess after you log in to your Amazon Associates account (manage tracking IDs).
How Does the Amazon Associates Program Work?
This program is different than the AdSense program. In order to make money with Amazon, a visitor must make a purchase after clicking the Amazon ad on your page. You get a commission for every item bought during the 75% of time when your Amazon ID is displayed on your SeekSuccess pages.
