Google can pay you for your blog in Cartesians

It is clear that we started these blogs in Cartesians because we like to write and we are passionate about the geospatial theme, however, since no one lives on poems here is the advice for do not leave the blog:

1. How does it work:
For the service to work Google has created at least two systems: the first is AdWords, through which companies pay for their ads to be published on the pages or sponsored searches. The second is AdSense, which is the system made for the owners of blogs or sites, where they can place the code for their ads to be displayed.
This is an example of them:

2. When money is generated:
-There are three ways: the first is ppc (pay per click) in that the advertiser pays Google for example 20 cents for every click done on their ads and Google pays 10 cents. (The figure is assumed, there are clicks from 1 penny up to several dollars, the most frequent are between 10 and 60 cents.
-The other way is payment per impression, the advertiser pays, for example one dollar for every thousand ads shown, always google stays with your commission, but in this case, it depends on the traffic that the page has.
-A third way is the ppa (payment per share), are ads that involve a specific action, not just the click, are usually free subscriptions, download demo programs, Google services or online purchases. The price of these usually goes from 10 to 90 cents per subscriptions, and sales are a percentage that goes in the 12%.
This is an example of those:

Also if you place a google search, you can have profits that can be of the same conditions mentioned above.

3. Can you cheat?
Do not try, and others should have tried before, at the slightest sign Google will cancel the account and the domain of your site so the most correct thing is that you write with passion and apply legal techniques to find yourself well positioned in the search engines. Keep in mind that you must know the terms and policies well, because there are many aspects that are penalized as the use of inappropriate content or malicious practices.

4. When do they pay?

The payment arrives when you reach one hundred dollars, depending on the country you can make bank transfer or Citybank check, you can deposit them in a local bank always when your account is in dollars and it takes to be enabled 14 days approximately.

4. How is it implemented?

First you must open an account in AdSense, they will ask you for the domain and personal data. If you do not have an account you can create it here:
Then, in the cartesian panel, you select the plugins option, here is an application called "Adsense-delux", you must accept its conditions and activate it, there you will enter the publisher code that Adsense gives you.


Now, to place it in the ads, follow these steps:
-There is one called “top cartesia”, that is the one you see at the top of the blog, to change it you select “edit” and copy a code generated in your AdSense panel
- To create other ads, at the bottom you have three windows, in the first you place the name of the ad, in the second the adsense code and in the third one a description.
– To call it to your post, you must have the editor option disabled, for this you go to “my profile” and disable the link “use the graphic editor to write” then record profile.


- Now a button is enabled, you are located where you want the ad and select the one you want to insert.

Good luck, if you have doubts, send them.

  1. Thanks for the explanation Tomas, I made the correction in my comment.


  2. It is not exactly as galvarezhn comments, since Cartesia introduces its Adsense advertising on the top line of the page, and the owner of the blog can enter their own anywhere in their entries and in any format. The advertising of the owner of the blog will always be predominant if you activate your account.

    In any case does not seek to enrich itself at the expense of the people who maintain their own blog.

    On the other hand, it would be necessary to take into account the work, responsibility and cost of maintaining a platform like this one in progress.

  3. I have verified what Tomas has told me, and in fact Cartesia only has a small block of links at the top of the post. Ad insertion is something that every user does.

    It should also be understood that being behind a WordPress MU platform, suffering from spam, plugin bugs and the tension due to new versions of wordpress has a price, which we thank Cartesia ... which is where much of the traffic comes from of these blogs.
