I noticed that lots of people in Nigeria are searching for ways to make money online with Google so I decided to write on this topic.
Truth be told, it is not that you cannot earn money online with Google but it is not an easy process.
Making money with Google is not a quick way to make money online. You have to put in the work consistently in order to be able to see results.
As far as I know, there are 4 main ways an ordinary person without strong tech knowledge can use to make money with Google.
I will outline all the methods in this article. All of them are very different business models so you will have to pick the one that is most suitable to you.
Having said that, here are 4 main ways you can use to make money online with Google.
Vlogging is the process of uploading video content on Youtube. Anyone who does this is called a Vlogger or a Youtuber.
It is one of the most lucrative ways to make money online. Already, lots of Nigerians like Tayo Aina, Dimma Umeh, Sisi Yemmie, Mark Angel, Emmanuela,Fisayo Fosudo and Dr Malik make some good money from Youtube. I wrote more on how to build a personal brand earlier.
However, there are certain secrets you must know in order to build a successful Youtube channel and you must be willing to invest in the right tools and resources to ensure you do well on Youtube.

You all know what a blog is. Blogging is another way to make money through the Google Adsense program which pays bloggers for the ads that are place on their website. Blogging is no longer in vogue as it used to be as but if you have a topic you’re passionate about and you can write well about it, by all means, start a blog. Who knows if you would become the next Linda Ikeji, Uche Pedro or Tosin Ajibade?
You will need good web hosting to setup a successful blog. Here is one web hosting I recommend that is good and affordable. (You can use it to build your website for $3 per month).

Google My Business is a feature that lets customer find your local or online business on Google maps when they are searching for the service which you render.

4. Learn SEO
SEO, better known as Search Engine Optimization is the process of ensuring that your website is found on Google. What is the point in having a beautiful website yet only your family and friends are aware of it?
