How To Make Money From Home | Ways To Make Money



Google is a behemoth of a search engine which gets approximately 75% of the total searches on the Internet. It is so dominant that the word “Google” is also now used as a verb as it “Google it” to mean search for something online. It is similar to the word Xerox which is a company name but grew to stand for all copy machines instead of just their own.

It is no wonder then that the Google work from home scam has been so successful and fooled so many people. It seems that a reasonably large number of people think (hope) there are ways to earn money with Google and these scams are out there front and center just like the one below:



In reality there is no way to use Google specifically to earn money. Yes, you can make money by displaying Adsense on your site or by using Pay Per Click to get viewers to your website. But this isn’t a job and there are no Google jobs for the general public. If you want to work for Google, you need to apply for a real job and live in a place where they have one of their offices just like you would with any other company.

Everyone who has a website of any kind wants to use Google to make money but only in the sense that they want their websites displayed up top the search engine rankings. If you can get your website on the top of Google for whatever your niche is, you will earn money if you know how to monetize your website. That is how you earn money from Google but it is hard and difficult to do. It is most definitely not a job an it is not easy money like people hope.

Are there any other ways to earn money from Google that I am missing? I don’t think so but let me know if there are.

    Thank you for the information. I was getting ready to put some money into a similar website but was trying to gather more information. I think I will pursue another path.

    Nope.. don’t think you missed any 🙂 Google Adsense is about the only way to get paid by Google that I know of. I hate when I see those fake checks that advertise getting paid by google for “posting links” .. It’s so bogus. Anyway.. keep up the great work. I’m a regular reader 😉

    Yes, I thought it was easier to make money on Google. I inquired recently about it and was surprised that it really isn’t so easy.

    Yikes, I’m so glad Google put this out here. I was almost taken until I came to the Google Web page and found this. Also, the same women Linda Johnson that advertises that she is making $5500 a month, is going by a different name on another web-site. Thanks Google.

    I’ve seen a few pages for this, I have been in a rough spot financially and was looking into this and decided to look into it on google itself. I gave my basic information to one page to recieve more information on it and they actually had someone call the house to speak to me. I’m so glad I saw this.
