Google Inc. created adsense out of a need to better targeted ads and more intelligent –profitable ads. Through the use of adsense a company can have targeted ad’s made to attract their current customers to other relevant topics through the adwords program. The revenues from this ad go in part to Google and in part to the website that is containing the ad, this allows for a win-win situation, the webstore is making money off of extra space on their site, and the company of product that is being advertised has a better chance of attracting potential customers as the advertising message is being directed at an audience that is more inclined to be interested. (*important to note that the website that is hosting the ad is only paid if the advertisement is click-AKA pay per click system)
There have been some criticism of the adsense program as their have new issues arises like click fraud-where a rival company will go in to a website that is displaying an ad for a rival product and frequently click thus driving up compotators costs.
There are no micro payments-payment is only made to the hosting website after there is an amount of $100 or more due-for some websites this can take up to a year or longer.

Search Engine OptimizationEdit
Search engine optimization (SEO) Edit
The process of improving the volume or quality of traffic to a web site from search engines via "natural" or un-paid ("organic" or "algorithmic") search results as opposed to search engine marketing (SEM) which deals with paid inclusion. Typically, the earlier (or higher) a site appears in the search results list, the more visitors it will receive from the search engine. SEO may target different kinds of search, including image search, local search, video search and industry-specific vertical search engines. This gives a web site web presence.
As an Internet marketing strategy, SEO considers how search engines work and what people search for. Optimizing a website primarily involves editing its content and HTML and associated coding to both increase its relevance to specific keywords and to remove barriers to the indexing activities of search engines.
Another class of techniques, known as black hat SEO or spamdexing, use methods such as link farms, keyword stuffing and article spinning that degrade both the relevance of search results and the user-experience of search engines. Search engines look for sites that employ these techniques in order to remove them from their indices.
A search engine optimization technique is considered white hat SEO if it conforms to the search engines' guidelines and involves no deception. As the search engine guidelines are not written as a series of rules or commandments, this is an important distinction to note. White hat SEO is not just about following guidelines, but is about ensuring that the content a search engine indexes and subsequently ranks is the same content a user will see. White hat advice is generally summed up as creating content for users, not for search engines, and then making that content easily accessible to the spiders, rather than attempting to trick the algorithm from its intended purpose. White hat SEO is in many ways similar to web development that promotes accessibility, although the two are not identical.
Uses both white hat techniques and black hat techniques to optimize search engine results.
