Until recently, I have been so busy searching for Affiliate Networks, that I have completely forgotten about Google’s Affiliate Program. I signed up for Google’s Affiliate Network last October and did not really use it much (only in some of my other blogs), due to the limited number of advertisers applicable to my niche. Last week however, I received another email from Google, and this time it was not about updating Privacy Policies, but rather… see below:
Don’t you just love surprises:) Anyway, I checked out my account and found out that this payment was related to a product I placed on a blog that was specifically created on a different niche (real estate). This single product, generated 2 conversions. Yes, only two conversions. Each was worth a whopping 80$ each, and now, I am getting paid for it.
While I was at it, I also found out that Google’s Affiliate Network of advertisers has grown. It has now a larger portfolio of advertisers to choose from, and on a variety of different categories. It is therefore, one affiliate program for you to seriously consider when trying to make money online with Google. One important aspect in affiliate marketing, is to find the right product or services that you will be promoting. Digital Cameras will do good in a gadget related blog, but will not do much good in a relationship advice blog.
Before signing up, just make sure you meet the requirements (really not complicated). View the complete requirements at Google Affiliate Network Publisher Application Requirements.
If you meet the requirements, add Google’s Affiliate Network on your list of Make Money Online Business opportunities.

UPDATE: Google’s Affiliate Network now integrated with Google AdSense.
I have written several articles about GAN and ways to make money online with Google to increase your earnings. With Google Affiliate Network, publishers can access cost-per-action (CPA) or affiliate ads. With GAN you can work with advertisers who will pay you a performance fee for driving a sale or other type of conversions depending on the program. Plus, what many AdSense publishers still don’t know is that GAN is now integrated with AdSense and it is now easier to reach the threshold as both are consolidated into one account for payment purposes.
