I don't expect to ever be swimming in money from it but an extra payday now and then is always welcome.
Any explanation about the "lack of content"?

Think you're talking about AdSense.
Adwords is advertising your own site in the google search engine. My tip: Read the Tips page and video tutorials of the programs before signing up. The google it up and read some more and then read some user experience in forums (to avoid making mistakes other people have made).
Then finally sign up and start in a small way to test the waters.

I've dealt with google adsense before. They are infuriating. Adwords is primarily for ppc (pay per click) if you are an advertiser. As Nathan says Adsense is for blog publishers.

Fortunately there are other options than just adsense You can find 5 good alternatives to adsense at this link:

I've used Chitika before, no complaints. I am an advertiser on Clicksor. They bend over backwards to help you out. They are worth a look.

That's right. For someone new to the internet marketing field they can be a little confusing to understand. AdSense is focused towards website owners and allows them to earn money by placing Google ads on their array of sites. Once a publisher site gets approved, it then becomes part of the ever growing 'content network' which is Google's huge list of websites from all around the world covering pretty much every subject on the planet.

The AdWords system primarily concentrates on advertisers that want to promote their products or services. Using a 'cost per click' or bidding based system, advertisers can get themselves to the top of the 'sponsored listings' and hopefully drive targeted traffic into sales or leads.

Hope that helps.

From what I've read elsewhere, using AdWords to try to hype a book is a bad idea.
The best thing to do is use those things to your blog post that give search engines a chance to find you.

For example, for my blog on Father Serra, I use such stuff as Spanish California, Spanish Missions and so on.

Consider Project Wonderful, instead. The glory days of adsense are over. I recommended a writer site up PW up alongside their adsense ads and it took in about the same.
It's used by a lot of writers as a sort of "ad swap" since can both buy and sell space.
