4 Ways To Increase Your AdSense Earnings

April 21, 2010 · 26 comments

in Affiliate Marketing

Google AdSense is the easiest and most common way to monetize your website or blog. The problem is that most webmasters and bloggers earn only a few dollars per month, because they think that the only thing they have to do is just place AdSense code on their site and wait to make thousand of dollars.

Here are a few tips that will improve your AdSense earnings even without increasing your site’s or blog visitors.

1. Build a custom color palette for your ads. Select colors that fit to the style and colors of your site. Preferably, you should choose colors that already exist on your site. For example if the background of your site is white and the links are blue, you should choose the same colors for the background and the titles of your AdSense ads. (white background and blue titles). If you make this small change, you will get many more clicks from visitors because these ads will be seen as links of your site.

2. Place the AdSense ads on the top and the right side of your site. AdSense ads should be the first thing that visitors see when they visit your site and not be hidden. You will be amazed what difference AdSense location can make when you see your earnings.

3. Try to automate the insertion of your AdSense code into the website pages using SSI (or server side included). Ask your web administrator if your server supports SSI or not. How do you do it? Just save your AdSense code in a text file, save it as “AdSense text”, and upload it to the root directory of the web server. Then using SSI, call the code on other pages. This tip is a time saver especially for those who are using automatic page generators to generate pages on their website.

4. Tell Google which ads to serve in your site or blog. Most people do not know that Google gives you the option to target a specific part of your page, which you can optimize with the keywords that you like. (Of course, it should be part of your content and not just a paragraph with repeated keywords). The only thing you should do is to add two lines of code inside the HTML on each page;

The code is the following:

<!– google_ad_section_start –> : Put this before the content that has the relevant text you want for ads

<!– google_ad_section_end –> : Put this after the content that has the relevant text you want for ads

If you are using wordpress and you are not familiar with html coding there are a lot of plugins that can do this automatically (just search for targeted AdSense plugins)

I’ve tried the basic adsense location setup strategy, although I’m not quite sure if that is effective enough. Will be exploring more on the SSI strategy.

Although most of the newbie might not exactly know what is Adsense but those who knows about it doesn’t seem to know that it takes quite some time to be placed in someone’s website and i think that the four important points that you have provided are of great importance an the old veterans and the newbies must look in to it.

You’ve said it all especially that aspect of color. I have this on my blog and it’s doing great. I’m using a white background and my post title’s color is black so I used white background for my adsense and a black colored link. Yes, it’s working great.

Using Twitter to send free traffic to you site

1. Create a new account with a good handle i.e. http://twitter.com/YourWebsiteName.
2. Introduce your website or yourself in the first few tweets.
3. Follow relevant Twitter users who own blogs similar to what you do.
4. You can use direct messages i.e. d username when you want to tweet someone directly. (Ex: d npxpcom)
5. Share your Blog articles links with the Twitter followers that you have.
6. Do not just share links from your blog but also post something what you have on your mind. (Check my Twitter)
7. Do not follow people for the heck of it. Only follow the people whom you think can be beneficial to you and your blog.
8. There is no rule that you have to follow the person who follows you. This can make Twitter a better place.
9. Make blog announcements such as contests to pull in crowd to your blog.
10. Do Not Spam Twitter, please.

i orginally started with adsense on one of my sites but then began to relize there was better opportunity to make money than adsense. I think you need to work to hard to get adsense earning even if your ads are in the proper
place on your site for optimal clickthough

Be careful when applying #2 above! In Janurary Google released its page layout update and it’s penalizing sites with too many ads above the fold. Take a moment to read the following post on the webmaster central blog: http://googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.com/2012/01/page-layout-algorithm-improvement.html

Wow..Nice tips for increasing the Adsense revenue.

The Sdsense earning depends on the ad placement where we keep. So it is always bet to have 3 ads per page which will give good CPC to us.

Hi,

Great Adsense tips, thanks so much for sharing these. I have a WordPress blog and I do use a plugin to place the ad blocks but the SSI information really is interesting and I’m definitely going to check it out.

Yeah the placement of your ad blocks is very important and should always be tested, because it ca increase your earnings by a lot if you get the right placement.

Have a great day.Cheers.
