The main purpose of Google Adsense is to place an advertisement on Google for the users. Every time a visitor clicks on the advertisement, the site owner will get an commission averaging to .45 cents. It is possible for websites with high traffic to earn more than $10000 on a monthly basis. But there is a lot of buzz on message boards about scams and frauds. There is a rumor that artificially generated traffic can help raising the income. This is false and warned against by Google. The higher the organic traffic, the more people click on the advert.
