Google AdSense Free Tips and Tricks

When you log into your Google Adsense account, you are automatically taken to the page where you can view all your Adsense activity. On the Reports tab, you’ll see “Today’s Earnings.” This is the approximate amount you have earned today in your Google Adsense account. Earnings are not final at this point and could be adjusted for invalid clicks or fees.

Understanding the Google Adsense Report

It’s interesting to look at the breakdown. As you can see, Adsense for Content, which refers to the targeted ads appearing on the pages in which you have written content, is listed first.  

Here you will see the number of page impressions listed in the first column. While a page impression is the same as a page view, that is not always the case. For a more detailed definition of a page impression, see Google Adsense support, click on Your Adsense Account and then click on Your Adsense Report. 

Next, you’ll notice the number of clicks. This refers to the number of times “your ads” were clicked on.

Page click-through rate or CTR is in the next column shown as a percentage. It represents the percentage of the time an ad was clicked on after viewing your page.

Page CPM, which stands for effective cost per thousand impressions. It is calculated by dividing total earnings by the number of page impressions in thousands.

Don’t be intimidated by these statistics. The bottom line, your earnings, is what counts. As you become more familiar with Google Adsense, statistics will become like second nature. First, start.

How is Google Adsense Different From Other Ad Networks?

Primarily because it is Google, and that carries a lot of clouts just with name recognition alone. But here are some advantages to being a part of the Google Adsense network:

Getting started is fast and requires no technical knowledge

  • Google Adsense even provides HTML code for easy implementation with explicit instructions.
  • Google Adsense has both the Adsense for a Content feature and the Adsense for Search feature.
  • Google Adsense provides a filter so that you can choose not to run your competitor’s ads on your pages and filter other unwanted ads.
  • Google Adsense provides an extensive support site that is easily understood.

 

Understanding Image Ads and Making Google Adsense Dollars with Writingup.com

Image ads are graphical ads. Unlike traditional banner ads, image ads are targeted to the audience, just like text ads. A publisher that has a combination of image ads and text ads has a greater revenue-generating potential.  

Image ads are only for Adsense for Content pages and not available for Adsense for Search results pages.

There are five major formats of image ads. The leaderboard is about twice the size of a banner ad, the banner image ad, the skyscraper, the wide skyscraper, and the medium rectangle. Google’s technology determines on a page-by-page basis whether image ads, text ads, or a combination of both will make you more money and then deliver the format.

You can choose to run only image ads. Still, Google recommends selecting both, giving them a better chance to target the right advertising for your page, generating more revenue for you.

Bottom line: taking these two methods together will give you the best chance at making the most revenue.

How to Make Google Adsense Dollars at Writingup.com

To get started blogging at writingup.com, first, you’ll need to create a Google Adsense account. If you’ve already done that, you’ll give them the same publisher id you got when you originally signed up with Google Adsense. Since you can only have one Google Adsense account, you will always use the same publisher id on every site you add. Next, you’ll create an account at writingup.com and within minutes, start blogging!

You still have to follow the Google Adsense rules as to the type of content not acceptable, but other than that, you have a carte blanche what to write about in your blog. Paste your writingup.com URL into your email signature, and every time you send someone an email, you will refer them to your blog, thus increasing your traffic on writingup.com.  

Comment on other publisher’s blogs. If you interact with the blogging community, you are more likely to have your blog read more often. Again, traffic.

Writingup.com has a list of successful topics you can write about. You don’t have to choose from that list, of course, but it’s quite extensive, and if you look it over, you’ll probably find something that interests you. They are successful topics because they turn up in search engines a lot. More traffic.

Using Google Adsense Without a Complete Website and Promoting Your Blog to Earn Money Through the Program

You don’t have to have your website to use Google Adsense. Google rarely approves personal pages, but that is not written in stone. Consult Google Adsense support pages for more information on what kinds of pages are acceptable. If selling a product or service doesn’t appeal to you, you might blog.

Blogging initially meant web log but has gradually come into its own. There are as many blogs as there are blogs themselves. A blog can be like a cyber journal in that you make daily “journal” entries, or it can be more like a newsletter set up to inform or communicate with other people.

Several blogging sites in cyberspace will allow you to create your blog pages and have targeted Google Adsense ads running on them.

A few of the most popular:

  • Writingup.com
  • Blogger.com
  • Bloggerparty.com

You can also search blogsearch.google.com for an extensive list of blogs. Not these carry Google Adsense ads, and if you’re going to write a blog, you may as well make some money at it. Look around, and you’ll find the perfect site for your Google Adsense ads to nest.

How to Promote Your Blog When You Are Using it to Earn Google Adsense Dollars

Promote your site or blog. You could write the great American novel, and if there’s little or no traffic to your site, you won’t make any money. Not only that, but no one will know what a brilliant writer you are.

There are several ways to promote your blog.  

  • Include the URL in your email signature.
    • Now you’ve just invited everyone you email to read your blog.

  • Link to other sites and ask the webmasters to link to yours.
    • Network!

  • Read other blogs and notice who is getting the most reads and comments.
    • What are they writing about?

  • Comment on other people’s blogs, but only if it is sincere.
    • This will increase your overall traffic as you will pique others’ curiosity, and they will want to read your blogs.

  • Write a newsletter and offer a free email subscription to your blog.

  • Put a Referral button on your site.

  • Put an Adsense for Search button on your site.

Deciding Where to Place Your Google Ads on Your Web Pages so That They Will Be Most Profitable

This is one of the best parts of the whole Google Adsense experience. No one else gets to make this decision except you. It’s your page. You get to decide how many (up to 3 ads per page), what colors and shapes you will use, and on what part of the page the ad will be placed.

Should you place your ads at the top or bottom? In the middle of the text? To the left or right?

The most important decision should be based on the needs of the visitors to your site? What are they looking for? Are they there to read or merely to browse.  

If they are there to read an entire article, say, you might try placing your ads at the bottom of the page so they will have something to do next. Some publishers swear by placing the ads at the top left of the page because they think customers look there first.

The fun thing is experimenting with all the possibilities. Try different ad locations and different colors for a week, and note the differences in your reports. When you hit on something successful, you’ll see the difference. 

Profile of Bloggerparty.com For Those Who May Want To Use it For Google Ads

Blogger Party is another blog hosting website where you can make money with Google Adsense. You create an account and use the publisher id you got when you created your Google Adsense account. If you have not done that yet, that is the first step to making money with your blogs.

At bloggerparty.com, targeted Google Adsense ads will be displayed on your blog pages. Fifty percent of that time, the ads will have your Google Adsense publishers ID, and the other fifty percent of the time, they will have Blogger Party’s Adsense ID or split between them and the person who referred you.  

That’s right, referrals get 25% of the ad time, which comes out of Blogger Party’s share and not the original blogger’s or the referral’s.

Blogger Party promises “party points” any time you write something or comment on someone else’s blog. According to Blogger Party’s admin, they do nothing yet, but later you will trade them in for prizes.

Why Do I Have to Get Approved for the Google Adsense Program

It’s not really about you. Google has standards to which they adhere, and there are certain sites that they don’t want their advertiser’s ads on. Check the Program Policies for an exhaustive list of what kind of content sites are not acceptable.  

Mostly, they do not allow ads to be placed on any site with excessive profanity. This is probably the hardest one to decipher as the word “excessive” could mean one thing to a publisher and another thing altogether to the Google Adsense program. To be on the safe side, if you notice more than a couple of profanity on a site you are considering using for the Google Adsense program, consider another site.

  • Sites that contain ads for beer, liquor, or tobacco products may not participate in the Google Adsense program.

  • Sites that promote hate or racist attitudes may not take part in the Google Adsense program.

  • If the site you are considering promotes gambling, drugs, even prescription drugs, it is not suitable for the Google Adsense program.

A good guideline to go by might be if a site is family-oriented. That may not cover everything, but it’s a starting place. Again, check the Program Policies for more information.

Why You Should Not Pay for Your Blog Site

If you already have a website that showcases your wares, or you’ve been thinking about getting one, that’s great. Since you’re working on building a business anyway, you can only profit more by implementing Google Adsense on your site as long as it conforms to Google Adsense Program Policies, of course.

If blogging is your interest, I say stick with the most popular blogging site you know. Or even two or three of them. Why? Traffic. Lots of it.

Blogging on an already populated site versus dreaming up your blog site is like the difference between 5:00 traffic in New York City and an old dusty country road. The owners of writingup.com, bloggerparty.com, and others like it bring in the traffic; they even help you make money when you bring in more traffic.

Remember what they say in real estate: location, location, location.
