For you newbies out there, if you are running your blog on a free wordpress blog, then you must have read the terms and conditions that you can NOT put Google Adsense into your blog. You can only incorporate Google Adsense into your wordpress blog if you are hosting your OWN domain. This means you are paying an annual fee for the running of your blog. For blogspot users, it’s pretty straightforward, isn’t it?
So, if you are indeed hosting your own wordpress blog and would like to make some residual income (like I do) from the big G, this is how you would do it. Bear in mind, it takes patience to make money online and lots of hard work, but it will pay off in the end as it will only keep growing.
If you are running on the latest versions of WordPress, that is WordPress 3.0.1 (and/or even earlier versions though you should keep up to date as much as possible), depending on the theme that you have selected, you will notice that there is a toolbar on your left colum in your admin page that is titled Appearance.
1. Click on Widgets
In your widgets page, there is a box in the middle titled Available Widgets. Click and drag a widget called TEXT into your desired column on your blog (right sidebar or left sidebar or whatever). In the new TEXT box that opens up, you can add a title if you so wish, but below that in the empty space is where you ADD in your GOOGLE ADSENSE CODE. Once you’ve added it in, save the box, close it and you’re done.
It will take up to 10 minutes before your Google Adsense will show up on your blog. Be patient and keep refreshing your page until it shows up. WARNING: Never, ever click on your own Google Adsense!!!
Now, how do you get the Google Adsense code?**************************************************************************
Who is Mamapumpkin?
Mamapumpkin spent 7 years in London committing crimes to gain her Bartlett BSc in Architecture. She spent 7 years as a Stay At Home Mom raising her children as documented in this Mamapumpkin blog since over 10 years ago and thereafter returned to the Corporate World stronger than ever. Her last job as Country Director of a British Railway Signalling organisation saw her getting ill with an aortal and mitral heart valve regurgitation and early stage cancer. Through her journey from working to not working to working again, she sets out to prove to all women that they can do anything and everything that they set out to do; as long as they have that fire of desire burning within and the drive to work hard. Even better with oodles of love, passion and integrity.
Despite being ill, she has grown a network marketing business from very little knowledge and experience in the otherwise infamously known MLM (Multi-Level Marketing) industry, racing from an income of ZERO to RM 100,000 monthly in merely 2 years. She is a firm believer of the MLM business model but realises the pitfalls too and understands how and why the majority of people would shy away (or zoom far away) from any MLM business.
She is now pondering the title of her new book, From Zero to 100,000 RM monthly in 2 years and has a sequel in the pipeline with the aim of helping real professionals succeed in the World of MLM. Always the giver, Mamapumpkin has supported orphans for over 30 years and has now extended her care to the sick, single mothers, and even struggling families. She believes that with the MLM business model, we can all have a life of our own desires to enable real contribution into the world.
A beautiful life without limits.
Mamapumpkin currently manages the Homeschooling Hub Malaysia on Facebook. She also runs Working Women Malaysia (not THAT kind of Working Women!), Mamapumpkin - Creating A Life of Abundance, and Funky Moms on Facebook to offer REAL support to all women who want career and life success. She is a living testimony that women really can have a lot. Being financially free has enabled her to travel the world anytime anywhere doing anything, and she spends most of her day to day with her children, reading and supporting other women.
