Google AdSense Tip #1: Find your keywords
Before serving ads on a web page, check its keyword density. A free and advanced tool for finding the most prominent keywords in a page can be found here: SEO Density Analyzer. Copy the most important keywords to a text file ([web page name]-Google AdSense-keywords.txt).
Google AdSense Tip #2: Improve your keywords
Get keyword suggestions from Overture Search Inventory and from Google AdWords Sandbox. Get new keywords that can help you improve your ad relevance. Enter the keywords from [web page name]-Google AdSense-keywords.txt and save the suggestions to [web page name]-Google AdSense-suggestions.txt.
Google AdSense Tip #3: Keep your website focused on a theme
Use the keyword suggestions to enhance your web pages and to build theme-based content. And also try to get your keywords into the anchor text of your incoming links as much as possible. Don’t forget that Google Google AdSense is keyword-targeted advertising: Google Google AdSense bases its advert topics on your websites content, this means that content-rich websites of a popular topic should attract a large amount of ads.
Google AdSense Tip #4: Write a new page every day
One of the best tips is to add a new page to your web site every day. The more content you have, the more visitors you will get. Put an Google AdSense unit on each and every content page of your site. But where? You will find more about that from the next Google AdSense tips.
Google AdSense Tip #5: Choose the right Google AdSense format
Wider formats are successful because the ads are compact, easy to read and are complementary to the content. The top three Google AdSense formats are:
336×280 large rectangle
300×250 medium rectangle
160×600 wide skyscraper
Another successful format is the 468×15 horizontal ad links, that can be placed under your navigation bar.
Google AdSense Tip #6: Color tips
When creating your Google Google AdSense ads it is recommended to use the color scheme and style of your website so that the ads blend in well. Ads without background color and borders perfom better than ads within borders with background color.
Create a custom Google AdSense palette:
border color = background color of your web site
background color = background color of your web site
link color = blue, color of your links
url color = black, #999999
text color = black, #333333, color of your main content
You can also rotate your color palette: select multiple color palettes that blend with your site to create variety.
Google AdSense Tip #7: Position tips
Visitors tend to look at the big headlines to see if your page is worth reading. If you get them interested, they will read the text and look for your navigation links.
Place the Google AdSense ads in a prominent place around the top/left part of your page or under your headlines, where your visitors are most likely to look at.
If you have an article page with a long body of text, the bottom of that article is a good place for Google AdSense ads because your visitors read the text and then they want more resources.
Google AdSense Tip #8: Increase the number of ads
If you have a lot of text on a page, use multiple Google AdSense units. You can use up to three Google AdSense units on a page, two Google AdSense search boxes and one unit of ad links.
Link units allow the user to refine what they’re interested in. So if they may not be interested in specific ads on your page, they might be interested in a particular topic, and by clicking on a link unit and a link in the link unit, they’ll be able to specify that they’re interested in that specific topic and get a lot more options and variety on the ads that might appear.
Google AdSense for Search allows visitors to search Google.com or your sites (up to 3 domains). You earn money whenever they click on the ads that come up on the search results. If you click the Open search results in a new browser window
Google AdSense Tip #9: Preview Google ads
You can find out what ads will be served by Google Google AdSense if you install Google Google AdSense Preview Tool, a very simple tool available only for Internet Explorer 6.0. Click to advertiser sites without generating invalid clicks, and easily add their URLs to your URL filter list. Because Google AdSense uses geo-targeting, Google serves different ads for other countries. Instead of faking your IP or travelling abroad to test your ads, use this Google AdSense tool to see what ads see your visitors from France, Germany or other countries.
It’s possible there are no Google Google AdSense adverts available for your webpage. Hide Public Service Ads, using alternate colors or images. Make sure you include the image in a simple html file as a link (use target=”_top”). The image size should be the same as the dimension of Google AdSense units. In the alternate url box, enter the absolute url of the html file.
Read more about alternate ads.
Google AdSense Tip #10: What not to do
Don’t click your own ads
Don’t ask others to click on your Google ads
Don’t manually change Google AdSense code
Don’t place Google ads on sites that include prohibited content (e.g.: adult sites)
Don’t employ cloaking, hidden text or farm links
Don’t use Google AdSense ads on the same page with similar ads (e.g.: Yahoo Publisher Network)
Google AdSense Tip #11: Show images above or next to your ads
Placing images above Google AdSense ads is not necessarily prohibited by program policies. However, depending on the method of implementation this could be considered encouraging users to click on ads. So you should include a border line between the ads and the images. Don’t show specific products in your images, in order not to mislead the visitors. Just use generic images that will increase the visibility of your ads.
Google AdSense Tip #12: Use section targeting
Use section targeting to emphasize some content in your page. On your site, place this code where you want to emphasize.
Content you want to emphasize.
If you want some content to be ignored, use
Google AdSense Tip #13: Alternate the colors of your ads
Google AdSense allows you to have up to 4 color variations for each variable for which you can specify color. You should do that if you put Google AdSense ads on pages that receive many impressions from the same visitors (for example forums) to reduce ad blindness. For example:
google_color_border = [”628098?,”628098?,”000000?,”000000?];
google_color_link = [”000000?,”BBB90C”,”BBB90C”,”628098?];
google_color_url = [”000000?,”628098?,”000000?,”000000?];
google_color_text = [”628098?,”628098?,”000000?,”000000?];
Great for overcoming ad blindness.
Google AdSense Tip #14: Your Google ads should be visible
Make sure your text ads are visible to the surfers in all screen formats. If you put the ads in a table give sufficient breathing room, i.e. proper cell padding and cell spacing to make the ads stand out from the rest of your content.
Google AdSense Tip #15: Use Google AdSense channels
You can categorize the content of your website into channels and then track your performance. This way you can experiment with different types of ads and see which is performing the best. Instead of buying an Google AdSense tracker, you can enter the most important pages in your site and see how they are doing. Create up to 200 channels for Google AdSense.
This will make your ads more usefull and realted to your post’s or website content
The comment tag that needs to be used is :
<*!– google_ad_section_start –*>
YOUR CONTENT HERE
<*!– google_ad_section_end –*>
Please remove the stars(*) in the above script
If the following apply, section targeting might be a good fit for your site:
1. You’re familiar with HTML and are comfortable adding HTML tags to your source code.
2. You want to help guide the crawlers to specific section(s) of your page.
3. The sections you want to target contain a significant amount of text (a large enough percentage of your overall content to help instruct our crawlers).
When you display an Ad in the same location with the same colors and Ad format, regular visitors tend to ignore them. This is called Ad Blindness.The tip here is to rotate between four different color palettes for your AdSense Ads.
1. Log in to your account at www.google.com/adsense
2. Click the AdSense Setup tab and choose AdSense for content as the product
3. Choose an Ad type and format.
4. In the Colors drop-down box, click ‘Use multiple palettes’, then select up to
4 color palettes by holding down the Control or Command key
5. Copy-and-paste the AdSense Ad code into web pages.As 4 different color schemes are used randomly on your page, there is a good chance that your visitors will click the Ad thereby increasing your click through rate (CTR) and allowing you earn more with AdSense.
Below are some frequently used terms / abbreviations related Adsense :
Page impressions – the number of pages viewed by your site visitors
- Page CTR – the ads click rate, i.e. #clicks / page impressions
- CPC – cost per click, usually used from advertisers’ perspective
- EPC – earning per click
- MFA – make for adsense, usually used to describe sites that is without real content but just have adsense ads… those sites may join the adWords program in order to acquire traffic.
- click dump – sometimes, google will hold up some click earnings from your account (some people said those clicks are higher pay clicks and google has to run some test to verify if those are click fraud). Those clicks will be added back to your account some time later which resulted in a sudden adnormal high earning on a particular day.
- PSA – Public Service Ad, those are for charities and clicks on them won’t earn you any cents.
- G.A.S.S – Google Adsense Stats Syndrome, describing people who keep logging into their adsense account to view the earning stats.
Here are a few random thoughts:
A lot of the complaints against AdSense over the last few months have probably got more to do with changes to AdWords than anything. Arbitrage publishers were rocked a couple of months back when changes were made to AdWords that made it more expensive to send readers to landing pages in the hope of getting them to click AdSense ads that earned more than the AdWords ads that got them there. It’s no wonder that people are complaining about AdSense as a way to Monetize Arbitrage with the changes that were made.
However if you’re not into Arbitrage and are a publisher who develops quality sites that grow a natural readership via SE traffic or loyal readers then I think AdSense is still a great way to go – particularly if you have a blog with some commercial edge to it (ie AdSense doesn’t tend to work well on religious, political or personal sites).
AdSense Alternatives :
The last 12 months have seen a lot more competition for AdSense. I have noticed a slight drop off in bloggers raving about AdSense partly because they’re now raving about other ad systems.
In my chats with bloggers I’m seeing a number of other income streams mentioned again and again. Here’s a few:
1. Text Link Ads (aff) – the team at TLA have gradually built a loyal publisher list over the past few months but providing an ad system that may not be as flashy or spectacular as AdSense in some senses but which works. Interestingly – I’ve chatted with a number of smaller bloggers over the past few weeks who say that TLA actually is their biggest earner. This is because it is not reliant upon clicks or traffic at all and is a very passive income for a blog that over time grows as more advertisers buy links. I spoke to an owner of a lesser known blog network recently and he told me that his network is earning five figures a month with TLA.
2. Amazon Associates - some publishers laugh off Amazon as not being worth the effort because the payouts are so small (4-6% in post cases) but I’ve chatted with a few publishers this week who are doing very well from Amazon. The advantage of Amazon over many affiliate programs is that they are a trusted brand. If you pick the right products to promote you can actually do quite well from them. I chatted with a publisher this week who is promoting lawn mowers and power tools on Amazon. Sell a $2000 tractor/mower a few times a week and it certainly adds up.
3. Clicksor (aff) – as unpopular as they became with some publishers in their early days of launching they continue to be a big earner for some bloggers. They continue to be neck and neck with AdSense for me in the earnings they bring in. They continue to improve their products and expand what they offer in terms of channels and I know of a few product oriented bloggers who make more from them than anything else. Can’t say too much but expect their range of advertising methods to continue to increase in the coming months.
4. YPN - Yahoo’s contextual advertising system is still in beta (it has been a longer process than many expected) and is yet to fully compete with AdSense. I’ve given it a go (via b5’s account) and wasn’t too impressed with how it converted here at ProBlogger but do know of some bloggers who continue to find that it does well for them. I think it’s a blog by blog proposition but is definitely an ad network to consider if you can get into the beta test.
5. Direct Sales - another emerging trend among bloggers (and networks of them) is the increased focus upon direct deals that are being done between bloggers and sellers (and their representatives).Willing to do deals as the word gets out that blogs are online real estate that converts pretty well for them. It’s not always easy to negotiate these deals as a single blogger with a relatively small readership but we’re now seeing networks of bloggers banding together which makes it much easier to negotiate such deals.
6. Product Bloggers - while there are not a lot of examples of this yet I suspect that 2007 will be a year that quite a few bloggers will launch products in their niches. Bloggers are starting to switch onto the fact that after a year or two of blogging on a topic that they are sitting upon a goldmine of information and expertise that can be reused in other forums. While this past year saw a number of bloggers release books I know of quite a few who are working up to releasing online information products, membership sites and coaching services in their areas of expertise. Whether they succeed or not is yet to be seen but it’s a logical next step for many bloggers.
Of course there are many other AdSense Alternatives out there for publishers also (with more coming I’m told). The variety of systems open to publishers surely is having some impact upon AdSense and what people are earning with it.
What do you think? Is AdSense dead? What has your experience of AdSense (and other ad systems) been over the past 6 or so months? Are you finding it easier or more difficult to earn money from your blogging?

Google Adsense posted about the ”Video content test on AdSense” in it’s offical blog.
Now google adsense is on a test for bringing video ads to its publishers which can be more effictive for it’s publishers to provide a best experience to it’s users aswell as the publishers to get more targeted ads to improve there CTR.
Over the next few weeks adsense team wil be testing AdSense video distribution and sponsorship with a small group of publishers. You may remember them doing a similar trial last year with MTV Networks, where they distributed ad-supported MTV video content to publishers who displayed the content on their sites. This time, they will be working with a larger set of content providers, grouping together video content from providers such as Warner Music Groupand Sony BMG Music Entertainment together with quality ads and offering them as playlists which publishers can select from and display on their AdSense sites. Participating publishers range from small to large, and cut across many different types of content.
You don’t have to spend big dollars to get traffic to your blog. Especially when you are first starting out and want to test the waters. There are ways to generate blog traffic without spending what you can’t afford. Some of the high cost methods such as bidding on keywords are not an exact science and if you don’t have a good knowledge on how to approach using keywords, you can lose a lot of money in a short period of time.
Here are 3 very effective ways to generate free traffic to your blog. They work, they are risk free, and will get you the traffic you need quickly:
Many blogmasters and webmasters are willing to exchange links with you so you can both generate more public awareness of your blog and the resulting traffic. When you exchange links you soon see the evidence of how the backlinks help by the sudden upsurge of traffic coming in from the other sites.
Common sense would dictate that when you engage in exchanging links with other sites or blogs you have the same niche or content topic as the other site. This will insure that the traffic you get from the other site are people who are interested in the topic of your blog and therefore in your product(s).
So contact the site or blog owners of the sites that look promising and that you want to exchange links with. Exchanging links will also increase your chances of getting a higher ranking in search engine results. Search engines will give a higher ranking to blogs that have inbound and outbound theme-related links. And the good ranking position in the search engines will generate even more traffic to your blog, because you will be easier to find.
Write and Submit Articles
There are many article directories on the internet which provide free space for articles to be submitted. If you want to save money on traffic generation, you can write the articles yourself or there are many article writers who will provide the articles for a very reasonable fee.
The topic of the articles of course are based on the topic or theme of your blog. Write on something related to your blog that you are knowledgeable about, and make it as interesting as possible.
If you are providing valuable information to your visitors, they will want to return on a regular basis.
Join Online Communities and Forums
This will require a fair amount of your time. Visit as many forums related to your blog theme as you can, and read comments or questions others are posting to the forums. In many cases you can comment and leave a link to your blog in your signature. Of course the people who like your comments will click on your address link.
Share your comments and let them see how knowledgeable you are. As you build your reputation, you also build the reputation of your blog, turning it into a reputable business that could end up being trusted and frequented by many loyal visitors.
Are you creating and selling your own information products on the internet? No matter in what niche you are, selling e-books online is one of the most profitable way to build a business on the internet. However, selling digital products (e-books), will sooner or later put you at risk of getting refund requests.
Everyone nowadays offers refund requests on their e-books, primarily because of the fact that most online shoppers have come to distrust e-books so much that it is really necessary in order to get some people to buy. There are a number of people that will simply not make a purchase unless refund requests are allowed within a certain time frame and that is exactly why refund policies are now required additions for most online e-book sales pitches.
While this is certainly a good tool for you to get some business going, at the same time it can also be annoying to have to deal with refund requests for the e-books that you sell. This is why many people have embarked on different methods to use in order to reduce the amount of refund requests. Assuming that you have already accepted that there are a certain number of people that are going to ask for refunds no matter what you do and also assuming that you are not interested in trying to cheat your customers through ambiguous language (not a good idea for anyone that values their online reputation) in the refund agreement, here are some things that you can try in order to reduce the number of refund you are getting when selling e-books online.
The first thing that you can do is to increase the length of time that people have to ask for a refund. While this might seem counter-intuitive, think about what you would do with more time. Chances are you’d put off full tests on the book, knowing that you have a longer period of time to actually test out the information to see if it is something that you would like to keep. Giving people more time by their very nature usually makes them procrastinate and that can end up in more people potentially missing the deadline for a refund, as counter-intuitive as that might seem. And if that doesn’t end up happening, you can always move the deadline back to where it was originally.
Another thing that you can do is force your clients to give you an honest reason for their refund. While many online marketers don’t like doing this (i.e. they want a “no questions asked” refund policy in place for their products), it can be very valuable to you, especially if you end up sending a complimentary updated copy of the e-book to the people in exchange for them telling you what made them return it. Over time, you’ll make changes to your e-book to reflect the complaints that people have about it and that in turn should reduce the number of refund requests you get.
To Your Success!
For several years I’ve been trying to make money online and offline and had little to none success as I’d been fooled by founders of those systems or their top promoters. I think I am not the only one who lost hard earned cash to that kind of money earning systems whereas top promoters always made their fortune of new members while most newbies spent days and weeks on figuring the system out before they found themselves a part of huge scam or money sucking machine. In the event when you managed to make any profit, your promoter would always take the biggest cut of your steak.
Recently, I came across a wonderful online money multiplying system, the one that finally works. I mean you don’t have to give up your commission or profit to make money. You can start making money in 24hours, no kidding, and the good thing about it is that there is no sign up or any membership fee.
This new discovery is “Just Been Paid JSS-Tripler” high yield program. In a nutshell, there are two ways to make money using this program. First is to invest your own money and earn 2% of your total amount daily (click here to see an approximate breakdown of your potential earning percentage). Yes, you need to invest your very own money- that’s what it takes to make income. Second option is to sponsor people to join “Just Been Paid” program. With the second option you don’t have to invest anything and you can get paid from $20 to $100s a day, it’s your call (click here to see your potential profit by sponsoring people in to program). Personally, I have invested money and I’m sponsoring people to system. This is the best thing ever happened to me. That’s definitely true Money Making System.
