Adsense Questions for Beginners

One of a beginner's question is "can someone really make money with Google?" The answer is a resounding yes. However, it depends on what blog you are putting up, and how much effort you are putting in. Take a look on the two real cases below, to understand what I mean.
Case #1
There's a blog about investing that has just about five visitors a day, with almost the same number of page views. It rarely earns from Google AdSense but if it gets a click, it's worth about $2.
Case #2
Another is a foreign lyrics site with about 2000 visitors, and 6000 page views a day. Search engine optimization is not a problem since most of its visitors naturally come from Google. If you see the numbers above, you'll surely think that "hey, that should earn a lot in AdSense!" However, it just earns about $5 a day, merely $0.05 per click.Well, $5 still sounds good. It can cover up the monthly web hosting payment at least. But come to think of it, if the investing blog in case #1 has just the same number of visitors and page views a day, with an average of 100 clicks per day in AdSense, how much do you think it will earn?
Google AdSense is a program from Google that allow its members to display relevant ads in their websites or blogs. Relevant means that these ads are related to the content of the website the ads are in. Since it is just one piece of code pasted in the site's html document, different types of ads appear in every page of the site unless the site just cover a single topic. So, if you are writing about investing like the site in Case #1, ads that will appear in the site could be: Earn Money at Home, Forex Chart, or Mutual Fund Investing. With these relevant ads, your visitors will likely to click on them. More visitors clicking on the ads, more payment from Google.
So in setting up a site or blog, and you want to earn money from AdSense, it is smart to look over the keywords in your topic, the competition in your niche, and if the number of visitors you are expecting is achievable. The reason you have to take note of these is because these are the factors that will determine how much you will earn from AdSense. So, it is really a combination of smart writing and internet marketing.
