    I know that Blogger has the Adsense program for their blog system. I think Wordpress can use Adsense, but is it good to have Adsense for a Wordpress blog? I know that Adsense can be profitable but I do not know if it is good for Wordpress or not. I think with the SEO it could be tricky bringing the traffic but I do not know. So do you think that Wordpress is good for Adsense?

    It sounds like you have very little idea/knowledge about adsense. Google Adsense is a free and simple way for publishers of all sizes to earn money by displaying targeted ads on their website. I do not know what are you referring to WordPress here, are you referring to a WordPress blog on wordpres.com or are you referring to a WordPress blog in general. I do not know about having a blog on WordPress.com and putting adsense on it but I do know that you can put ads on your self hosted WordPress blog. Just look at the blogs you visit every day 90% of them are powered by WordPress and more than 90% are showing adsense ads on them.

    Bringing in traffic is not all about SEO, well most of it is about SEO but if you start on the right foot driving traffic to your website can be easy.

    You can't put ads on a WP.com blog. They put their own ads on: that's why it's free. :)

    You can, of course, put them on self-hosted WordPress blogs (which people generally refer to as "WP.org", since that's where the download comes from).

    AdSense is fine for almost any kind of site, regardless of platform. Admittedly, you won't get many clicks unless you write about a specific subject, but it's just as good as most other options (if not better - it certainly pays better). The only time I'd use a different provider is (a) on prohibited content (adult, casinos, escorts, etc.) and (b) where the target demographic simply doesn't click ads (go for CPM instead).

    The last time I checked WordPress.com they had a plugin for advertising where they shared the ad revenue 50/50 with the owner of the WordPress blog. CPM ads do not require your users to do anything but I have not encountered a good CPM banner advertising website. Most only pay for popups/popunder ads for CPM which can get really frustrating for visitors.

    I think the ad service you are referring to is WordAds. While it can be a decent way to earn some revenue on your WP.com blog, it is pretty selective. Your blog needs a significant amount of traffic to be selected.

    Well I was not sure what you would use to generate revenue with Wordpress. If they are selective about allowing you to have ads on the blogs then I'll refrain from it and use other methods.

    I have adsense running on my blog and so far I have over 1,200 unique this month and I haven't had a single click. Matter of fact I have not made a penny off adsense. I have a local blog so when I get some more content I am going to see if I can drum up some local advertising and take adsense off my website.

    Adsense also accepts selective websites. Do not forget the number of restrictions Google has to even apply for an adsense account and how hard is it today to get an adsense account. If you do not have significant amount of traffic on your website than putting up ads on your website is just a waste of time.

    Adsense and WP work fine together. There are even plugins that you can use that automatically place 3 ads at your site without you having to do anything. If you get the permission from Google to use adsense you should get the hang of it fast enough, but if you looking to get revenue with wordpress, I can tell you right away that adsense doesn't make you rich.

    A self-hosted WordPress site is perfect to put Adsense ads. A WordPress blog that is hosted for free will not permit Adsense ads to be put in posts or articles since they have their own ad program. I don't know what your point is regarding SEO and WordPress. SEO is hard regardless what platform you use especially if you don't know what you're doing.

    Adsense works fine with Wordpress but I recommend using it from the start. I had a blog that had already been up two years and was popular before I signed up for adsense. They blocked my account after seeing huge spikes in clicks from day 1. I tried explaining that it was an already established site but they never did sort it out.

    It doesn't matter which blogging platform you use. Google adsense is quite good, but keep in mind that they have very strict rules. This is why I never use adsense, sometimes they check ban your account for no reason. If you have a blog or website with decent traffic, then the best way to monetise is to promote products, either your own product or affiliate product as there won't be any risk of getting banned and also you could potentially earn much higher than adsense. But when it comes ppc there is nothing better than Google adsense.

    If you have free wordpress blog, you cannot monetize it with Adsense or any other ad networks. However, if you have paid for hosting your wordpress blog, you can use Adsense or other ad networks of your choice. Interestingly, if you have a free blog with blogger, you can use Adsense(because blogger and Adsense both are Google's products). Adsense is for small,medium as well as big publishers.

    I have a free WordPress blog but I cannot monetize it. One needs to pay for hosting your WordPress blog in order to use Adsense on it. This is the main difference between blogger and WordPress. You can monetize your free blog at blogger using Adsense but not at WordPress.

    Everyone recommends WordPress self hosted blog because here you will have copyright for you content, if you use blogger platform Google can delete your content at anytime without intimation and it happened to so many bloggers.

    All your hard work goes waste, so choose the right platform before planning to earn money from Adsense.

    In my words Adsense is that kind of ads which helps the blogger in earning and visitors too in booking services directly. If your website is self hosted not like a free WP blog and have good online traffic, then the Adsense gives you maximum benefits in the future.
