While most users only see its services as a way to get an answer to their query, others use it as a way to earn extra money or even to get a full salary. As we present to you below, it is indeed possible to earn money with Google, and the eight methods detailed here will help you to achieve to take advantage of the assets of this search engine.

Make money with Google: top 8 most effective solutions

1. Google Opinion Rewards

In order to constantly improve, Google must take into account the opinion of its users, and the best way to stay in touch with them is to ask them directly for their opinion. This is the purpose of the Google Opinion Rewards application, which you can download for free and collect credits.

You can either use your earnings on the Play Store (Google’s online store) or credit your Paypal account (find out all the ways to earn money on Paypal) and then make online purchases or deposit your balance into your bank account.

Google Opinion Rewards will ask you to fill out a detailed profile in order to offer you regular surveys that match your usage, similar to the best-paid survey sites.
It only takes a few minutes to complete, and you’ll earn up to $1 each time. The prize pool grows quite quickly!

2. Google AdSense

Google Adsense is the advertising platform offered by the American giant, and it allows anyone with a website, a blog, or a YouTube channel to earn money with Google by generating traffic. I invite you to read our article that explains how to earn money via YouTube. It’s simple: via this platform, ads will be placed on your site / your videos, and you will accumulate earnings according to the number of clicks on the ad or the number of views. This is how the most popular specialized websites or the most popular YouTube channels manage to earn significant revenues.

Easy to use, with many customization tools, Google Adsense is the best way to monetize a site. You have to be careful not to overwhelm the visitor with ads by placing your inserts in the right places and not to be too greedy by multiplying the ads. But with the right mix and quality on your site, you will see your revenues increase quickly.

3. Evaluate Google

If Google is the number one search engine, it is because it strives to offer the most qualitative content possible to its users. Indeed, when you make a query, and you come across exactly what you are looking for, it is not by chance; it is the result of advanced algorithms and the work of search engine evaluators. And yes, you can spend a little time evaluating Google and get paid for it. To do this, you need to sign up on search engine reviewer platforms (like Lionbridge or Appen, which Google itself loves!) and follow the instructions to take part in these review tasks.
Depending on the work you do and the time you devote to it, you can generate substantial income and even get a full salary with an hourly rate higher than the French minimum wage. The big advantage of this solution to earn money with Google is that it does not require any particular qualification, just a little bit of your time.

4. Google Maps

Google Maps is the most popular and accurate tool to find your way around the world, and it serves as a GPS as well as a guide to finding the most interesting activities in an area, the best restaurants, or the must-see stores in a city. But did you know that you can participate in its development and be rewarded for it?

First of all, you should know that you won’t earn money with Google Maps but rather rewards. For example, free subscriptions to Google’s music or video services. For this, you just have to become a local guide to accumulate points.
All you have to do is :

Give your opinion on a place.
Answer questions asked by potential visitors.
Add photos of a monument or dishes from a restaurant.
List places that are not yet indicated on Maps.
Correct location errors, quite frequent, or the coordinates of an establishment.
To go even further and make money with Google Maps, it is even possible to offer businesses (in your city, in your neighborhood) to help them to be correctly listed on this tool. By presenting them the advantages they would have to be located on Maps, you will be able to manage their listings for them and get paid for it. Of course, some canvassing will be necessary to start this activity, but the final benefits will be substantial.

5. Do Google audience measurement

Like Google Opinion Rewards, you can measure the Google audience to help the search engine understand how people use their system. It is a rather intrusive solution, be aware since your devices and sessions will be analyzed by the firm’s teams, but if you have nothing to hide and you want to collect credits to use on Google, it is an interesting method.

It’s exactly the same system used to measure TV audiences, with the installation of measuring devices in test homes. If you are interested, you just have to apply to be part of the panel and mention the eligible devices (TV, PC, tablets, Smartphones…) to become a panelist.

6. Selling books on Google

If you are an author of novels, short stories, or e-book marketing (among others), it is obvious that selling your books is an option you have thought about. You can publish a book on Amazon easily, but you can also do it on Google Play! This is a great way to make money with Google because your books will be offered to a huge panel of Internet users, who will find you by browsing the virtual library of the American firm or via a simple Google search. Indeed, words appearing in your book can make you stand out in searches, even if they are not in the title. This is a great advantage, and it allows you to reach a very large number of readers.

Whether you are an aspiring poet, a seasoned novelist, or a business consultant, going outside the traditional publishing circuit and self-publishing online (via Google Books) is a modern and increasingly common way to generate revenue from your books.

7. Offer your applications on the Play Store

On the Play Store, any user (registered and paying a fee of about 25 euros) can offer an application for sale. You just have to browse the virtual stalls of this Google store to understand that the competition is huge in some areas, but if you have THE right idea or you just want to offer an app for sale to earn a few euros each month,, this is a very good solution. You just have to create an application (if you are a developer) or have it created by a third party and then put it on sale. Of course, you have to respect some quality criteria imposed by the firm and propose an accepted content, but once these tests are passed, your app’ will be accessible to millions of Google Play users.
This is an excellent way to earn money with Google, but it requires a basic investment that can be more or less heavy, depending on the nature of your application. However, when it’s successful, it can pay off.

8. Sell your services to improve the referencing of a site on Google

For any website, being well referenced on Google is essential. And this is not done by magic but through quality content and respect for the rules of SEO (Search Engine Optimization).

For this, there are several solutions:

Become an SEO consultant, and propose an analysis of the sites/solutions for a better referencing.
Write quality articles to improve the content of a site / increase the visibility of a site on Google (discover our article, which describes the qualities required to be paid as a writer).
Propose your own site on a subject that is important to you, and make sure that it is successful on Google.
Make money with Google by putting your free time to good use.
When you know how powerful Google is nowadays, you understand that exploiting the possibilities offered by the American giant to generate profit is a good idea. You could see with these eight practical solutions that making money on Google is a reality, which will depend on two things: your abilities and your motivation.

If you have talents to show (writing, development…) or time to devote to improve its services (to evaluate the search engine or measure the audiences…), then you might as well use them to supplement your income.

Some of these solutions will allow you to draw a full salary, others to generate a complementary income for an easier end of the month. For those who have a little time on their hands and would like to have a little more money in their account, the eight methods we have presented should give you some interesting perspectives.
