Teenagers are increasingly using the internet and search engine marketing techniques in order to earn money, it has been claimed.

According to CNet.com, entrepreneurial young people are creating their own opportunities online, such as 18-year-old Laura Durst from Connecticut who has established WorkInMyRoom.com, a website offering information and resources to teens looking for ways to work from home.

She told the news source that she uses Google Adsense to earn money from users and generates around $250 (£151) per month in advertising revenue.

"This is a generation raised to believe they can do anything and the first to grow up with entrepreneurial celebrities like Steve Jobs of Apple and Larry Page and Sergey Brin of Google," Donna Fenn, who interviewed 150 young entrepreneurs for a forthcoming book, explained.

Google’s Adsense recently responded to calls from users – including search engine marketingprofessionals – and launched a new service that enables them to alter the font size of the text in their advertising units.
