Google AdSense: What is Google AdSense for Search?
Google AdSense for Search is different than AdSense for Content but it is just as important to your earning power with the Google AdSense program.
Just like AdSense for Content places targeted ads on your content pages, AdSense for Search places targeted ads on the results page of the search set in motion on your page.
You can use the standard Google search box on your site and the user can then search the web or even your site. When you feel more comfortable, you can change the look of the Google search box, essentially customizing it by changing the colours and using your logo.
The best thing about Google AdSense for Search is that you can track what your visitors are searching for. That is, if the search has two or more hits. Unique queries will not be tracked. But you can see the top 25 searches performed from your website by clicking on the Advance Report from the Reports tab and specifying a date range.
Google AdSense: What other forms of payment does Google AdSense offer?
You can elect to have your Google AdSense payments mailed to you via check in your local currency. Google AdSense offers this option in 42 countries. Check the Google AdSense support center to see if your country is included in this list.
To select receiving your check by postal mail, log in to your Google AdSense account, click the edit link near Payment Details and then click the check standard delivery radio button. Then click continue. Now you can select your currency, if available or you may select US dollars. When you’re satisfied with your choices, click save settings.
You may also choose to receive your payment through Secured Express Delivery. There is a fee for this service but you can expect to receive your check within 5-10 business days after it has been sent. If you choose this option, you will need to contact DHL (the courier service) to make sure they offer service to your area and that your address is in the proper format.

Google AdSense: When do I get paid using Google AdSense?
Google AdSense pays you approximately 30 days after the end of the month in which you become eligible to receive payment. You become eligible for payment only when your AdSense account reaches at least $ 100.00. Suppose, for example, you started in January and at the end of the month you had not yet accumulated $ 100.00 in your Google AdSense account. You would then need to wait and see if you’re January and February earnings combined equal $ 100.00. If they do, you would be paid approximately 30 days after the end of the month of February, that is, you could expect payment near the end of March.
Another good reason to also use AdSense for Search is that you get to combine the earnings to reach the $ 100.00 payout minimum. So if your earnings for AdSense for Content do not reach $ 100.00 in time for the current payout, but when combined with your AdSense for Search earnings they do meet the payout minimum, you will be paid accordingly.
