Make Money With AdSense Without Having A Blog Or YouTube Channel – Case Study


Making money with AdSense is easy and lots of people are making a decent amount of money with it over the years. Recently, I discovered that I don’t need a blog or YouTube channel to make money with AdSense.

I did my research and decided to experiment with it. The result was truly amazing.

In this blog post, I’m going to tell you how it is possible to make money with AdSense without having a blog or YouTube channel.

You probably use web apps often like Instagram video downloader, YouTube video downloader, and many others. You can access them from any web browser and use them without installing them on your device.

You might have seen advertisements on many web apps, and mostly those ads are served by AdSense. I will show you one example so that you can understand it better.

I searched for an Instagram video downloader on Google.

As you can the first result is, let’s visit the website to see how it makes money.

You can clearly see 2 advertisements from Google AdSense. I copied this model and launched my own web app called UPI Payment Link Generator.

I don’t have much experience in coding but because I knew the basics, I copied an open-source project from GitHub and changed a few things like name, colors, and stuff like that, and made it look unique.

I needed a landing page for it, so again I went to GitHub to find an open-source landing page. I found a beautiful landing page, copied it, and customized it for my use.

Finally, I bought my domain name from Hostinger and deployed it. You can see it here.

Here’s the original landing page and original code for the UPI link generator. Both of them are open-source and published under an MIT license, which means you can copy the project and do whatever you want.

I’m a lazy guy and I knew I can’t promote this project actively. So I decided to do basic SEO and added my domain to Google Search Console. So far I received around 300 clicks from Google. I added my site on Bing also. So far the project is doing great, made me some money as well.

The good part is, you can deploy your projects on Vercel, so you don’t have to pay for hosting. Whatever you earn will be profitable because there is no expense to run these web apps in most cases.


The demand for UPI Link Generator is very less and that’s why I get less traffic from searches. My site ranks at 9th position on Google Search, which also affects my traffic.

I recommend you do market research properly before building your project otherwise you will also get a lot less traffic and in many cases, the competition will be fierce, and your project will never be able to rank on the first page of Google.

The amount of money makes is insane because it gets millions of page views every month. Check the stats below.

As I said before, you don’t need to be an expert in coding to do this. Just do the market research properly, then pick an open-source project from GitHub and deploy it on a web server. You can buy a domain name and launch it when you are ready.

SEMrush has helped me a lot in my market research. It offers 10 free searches per day, which is enough in my opinion. You can also take advantage of Free tools by Ahref.

The main part of this experiment is market research. I can’t emphasize this enough. It doesn’t matter how great your project looks or works. If nobody uses it, then you won’t make a penny out of it.

Thanks for reading the post. I appreciate it. Please do let me know in the comments if you have any doubts or need help building a web app.
