Tips For Using Google AdSense

 

For some of you who are very familiar with this type of adverting service offered by Google. But for myself and many other bloggers, advertisers and entrepreneurs I was unaware of what exactly Google AdSense was until about a four months ago when I started to research it. So for those like me this program is basically designed for website publishers who want to display targeted text, video or image advertisements on website pages and earn money when site visitors view or click the ads. When I found this information I was excited and wanted to learn more about and find out does it really work. So if you are just starting out, there are several things that you should absolutely do in order to get the most out of AdSense. So here are seven tips on how to use Google AdSense.

  1. Smart Pricing:” Anything But Smart:

If at all possible try to avoid Google’s “SmartPricing” scheme. With SmartPricing, Google gives advertisers a discount based on how popular or “valuable” your website is. They tend to base this on your site’s click through ratio. So if your website has a high click through ratio, then the perceived value of your site is high so then the cost per ad click is higher. If your click through ratio is low, however, the value of your site is “low” so you get less money per click. The difference between a Smart Priced site and a non-Smart Priced site can be anywhere from a couple cents to several dollars in difference.

  1. Choose Big Ads:

AdSense advertisements come in a variety of formats and sizes, so you can tailor the formats to see which one works best with your blog or website. Having an advertisement that looks good on your blog or site is important, but keeps in mind: the size large advertisements have long proven to give the best payout. Maybe this is because the ad is right in any visitors face, or maybe it’s because that size can display video ads

  1. Use multiple ad units to maximize conversion:

A simple way to increase  your AdSense click rate and revenue is to place ad units of more than one type (AdSense for content, link, and search) and in different sizes on your pages. This way, your users are served more ads from Google’s large ad inventory, increasing the probability that they will end up clicking on one of them. Make sure that the best-located ad on your web page shows up first in your HTML code. This will ensure that your most visible ad real-estate is taken by ads that place the highest in the auction—increasing your revenue.

  1. Build an audience before setting up AdSense:

Though it may be tempting to set up AdSense on your website right after you’ve published the first piece of content the temptation should be avoided if you really want successful from AdSense. Cluttering your website with ads before anybody really knows about it will likely put visitors off, and consequently, they’ll be less likely to share or link to it. This limits your ability to emerge as an authority in your niche.

  1. Publish high-quality content on a constant basis:

This really is very important to having success with AdSense, the other points are all just tips to help in one way or another but when it comes to AdSense earnings, content really is  most important. To make it simple if you don’t have traffic, you won’t make money but more traffic then you will make more money.

  1. Enable Placement Targeting:

This allows advertisers to include your website in their campaign, either by name or by targeting an interest group. Placement targeting should be enabled by default, but if you’re using DFP you may need to take a few additional steps.

  1. Monitor Your Success:

No matter what you do with your blog or website, you need to keep track of how successful your ads are doing. If you don’t monitor your ads, then you will ultimately fail. You’ll be able to pin point which ads work, which don’t, and over time you may discover that certain ads work best at certain times throughout the year while others work best at other times.

      If you are a affiliate with amazon you can leave a link some where in your blog or just make tab that will direct you to amazon. You can also do the same for your Facebook page as well. I don’t think you can put an actual ad for amazon. Also to put ads on your blog you either have to self-host your site or upgrade your wordpress.com account. I hope this helps & thanks for reading!
