    Google Ads


    Does anyone know if this is a smart business to go into (for a teenager) for some extra income?

    From what I have read about it it seems pretty reliable and a good way to make money but then again it could just end up costing you more than you'll hope to make in return.

    Don't understand your question...

    What business are you into?
    Why would it cost you since placing Google Ads are free??

    If you're under 18 I think the terms exclude you.

    theres no way of them finding out how old you are

    ive put google ads on my pages, the chances are you wont earn that much from them and you have to earn $100 before they pay you which considering you for about 10c per click will take a long time unless you have a lot of hits.
    Its not a bad way of earnign a bit of money but it will take a long time to get it

    it depends on the topic of your site, the value of a click could range from a few cents to a few dollars or even more.

    And if you earn more than $600 they must report you to the IRS at which time they will require you to file a 1099 and they will then know precisely how old you are, FYI. It's the law.
