To participate in our adshare program, you will need a Google AdSense account.

What Is AdSense?

If you take a look at any of the articles on our site, you will see ads on them. Those are AdSense ads.

When a reader clicks on one of those ads, money is earned by either the writer or CP. How much money a click earns depends on how much the advertiser has bid for that ad to be shown.

Behind the scenes, each ad has an ID on it. either the writer’s ID or an CP ID.

As a new CP writer with an AdSense account, your AdSense ID will be placed on the ads in your articles 50% of the time .

After your initial training period, your AdSense share will increase to 70%. Most writers reach this point by the time they have written 10 to 15 articles.

Google AdSense pays you directly for the earnings your ads generate.

Please note: Consumer Press is not affiliated nor partnered with Google AdSense. We simply use their program and allow contributing writers to do the same.

AdSense Approval

To be approved for AdSense, Google requires that you own your own website that:

1) meets their quality guidelines and

2) that you can put ads on.

Don’t have your own site?

That’s ok, there’s a workaround.

If you apply and are accepted as a writer at CP, we will help you apply for an AdSense account. As part of the process, you will need to write 10 to 15 articles on Consumer Press. After your AdSense account is fully approved, you will be able to place your AdSense ad code on those and all future articles you write on CP.

If you are starting from scratch, it does take some work to get an AdSense account. But once you have it, it’s a valuable tool you will be able to use for years to come (assuming you follow their guidelines and rules). You’ll be able to use it here on CP, on your own site if you build one, and other AdSense sharing sites as well.

Do be aware that we can’t guarantee that you will be approved for an AdSense account. If you live outside of the US (requirements vary sometimes by country), or have had an AdSense account revoked in the past, those are two obvious things that might affect your approval.
