Did someone tell you you can make
money easily with Google Adsense? Did they tell you that
to put up a site and people will click on the ads and you
can make hundreds of dollars per day?
Maybe that's true, for them, because they have a system to
make this happen. They may have omitted how to make and
Adsense site successful. In this article I will highlight
the most important points to make your site successful.
5. Position your ads so that they look as if they are
part of the content.
Position your ads so that the ads are in the visitor's
field of vision. Although, you might think that putting
the ads in the right and left columns keep your site
clean, the clickthrough is not as effective as putting
them in between the content. Look at your newspapers
classifieds. Notice how many of the ads are surrounded by
the actual articles? Same concepts apply here. At the very
least do some of both.
4. Don't make the ads look like Ads!
People get turned off by ads with borders. We are
psychologically trained to think that anything surrounded
with a border is probably an ad. Look at all the print
media and all over the web, and you'll notice that most
ads have borders that alert visitors that they are ads.
This is NOT what You want to do!
Go in your Google Adsense Layout tool and change the
border colors and backgrounds to match your website
colors. This will make them look like they are part of
your site not ads. I cannot emphasize this enough.
Removing borders will increase your clickthrough rate
3. Add a Google Search Box on your website.
Such a simple thing but often overlooked. Did you know
that if your site visitors use your Google Search box you
get credited with a click? People surf the web for one
primary reason -- to find information. Your website
provides information. However, it is rare that we find
what we want on one website. And, if we want more info we
tend to want to search for more. How convenient to have a
Google Search box at the end of your article!
2. Provide good content.
You may be tempted to put little content on your site.
After all you want people to click on the ads not stay on
your site. This may have some truth in it, but think of it
the other way. Having valuable content on your site means
that your visitors are more likely to bookmark your site,
and the search engines will like your site better.
1. And the NUMBER ONE secret to Making Money with
Put up as many sites as possible! Yes, this is what is
never told to you. Why invest all your energy trying to
get traffic to one site? What if the topic you chose is
not a very popular one or has so much competition that you
get little traffic? A well known strategy is to put up as
many sites as possible and then monitor the results to see
which ones work and which ones don't. With the ones that
do, put in extra effort to get more traffic to those
To do this without buying a domain name for each one, get
an account at a web host that allows unlimited subdomains.
When you register a name get something general for each
theme. Then use subdomains to make all the related sites.
Finally, if designing web sites is not your strong point,
you can get pre-built sites and/or templates which are
already laid out with the techniques I described. That
will get you up and running pretty quick. Take a look at
