TheWrestlingTalk.com is proud to indroduce Revenue Sharing for all articles, videos, rankings, and news posted by our members. Now you can become a freelance author, paid by Google to write about Wrestling and Mixed Martial Arts.
After your account is reviewed and the quality of the content meets our requirements you will be added to the front page feed in addition to already appearing on the front page of the news section. Articles about High School Wrestling tournaments, athletes, and other events are often syndicated to HSWrestling.net and also include your ad code.
I'm In! What Is Required?
All that is required of you is a Google Adsense account, an article, and one little piece of BB Code.
Once your article is finish, you post it into the News system like you would any other article or forum thread, but you include this code in the middle of your article (In the heart of your content):
To make use of this code:
1. Sign up for a google adsense account here.
- Answer all questions honestly.
- Use this website address as your website URL.
- It may take up to 2 or 3 days for your account to be verified.
2. While logged into "AdSense" click on the "AdSense Setup" tab.
3. Click on "AdSense for Content"
4. Select "Ad Unit (text and image ads - default)" and hit Continue.
5. Choose format "250x250 Square Banner" and any other settings you want.
6. Choose a corner style (your choice) and hit Continue.
7. For "Choose Ad Channels" Just skip this if it doesn't apply and hit Continue.
8. Give your ad unit a name if you want, the default is fine, hit "Submit and Get Code"
You will be given a code that looks something like this:
There are two numbers you need to write down or copy for later use.PHP Code:
google_ad_client = "pub-8159009790709260";
/* BBCode 250x250, created 7/29/10 */
google_ad_slot = "5558319346";
google_ad_width = 728;
google_ad_height = 90;
In this example the first one is: 8159009790709260 this is the "ad client" and will go between the "ad" bb code tags.
The second number is the "ad slot" and in this case is: 5558319346. This goes in the "option" part of the tag.
Therefore to use this ad your code would be:
Note: It's very likely if you are trying this for the first time it will be blank for you. Google sometimes takes up to about 10 minutes after the ad was created before actually displaying an ad. Give it time, an ad WILL show eventually.
Once you've added the code and the article is formatted to your liking click the "Publish to Facebook" button next to "Post Now" and then click "Post Now". Publishing to Facebook is a great way to get reads from your Facebook friends.
How Am I Paid?
Google will pay you when your account reaches $100.00. If you publish outstanding material this threshold can be broken on a monthly basis.
What Else Do I Need To Know?
- Do NOT click on your own ads. (Or allow anyone with access to your adsense account to click them) Google will ban your account and you will forfeit all earnings.
- Ads may not show up immediately. If they don't appear within 10 minutes either there are no relevant ads or the code was added incorrectly.
- At this time the ad code can only be used in the News System and not on the forums themselves.
