How To Increase Blog Ad Revenue With Your Google Adsense Account
I've been earning Google Adsense on my niche blogs for two years now. In that time, I've explored many ways to boost my blog Adsense earnings. Here are ten of my best 'tried and true' methods for earing money on my Google Adsense blogs.
Burn your blog feeds with Google Feedburner: Feedburner is Google's promotional toolkit. Feedburner has loads of tools to promote and advertise your blog, include email subscriptions, Twitter connections, RSS tools, social site subscribers links, ping services and more. Feedburner is very simple to install and use.
Place blog ads in these locations: 'leader board' 'side bar' and 'post footer'. Bloggers are allowed three ad placements by Google Adsense. Using all three slots gives blogger best exposure for their ads. These are also the best locations to place ads on your blog. Be sure to 'enable post links' on from your blog settings dashboard. Also, from your 'layout menu, open the 'blog posts' options and be sure that 'enable ads between posts' is checked.
Blogger has a 'monetize' tab. Bloggers should access this tab regularly, to make sure that all Google Adsense options are working properly. Make sure that there are no glitches or ad loading issues with your blog.
On Google Adsense, visit the 'Webmaster Central' website and add all your blogs to this Google Adsense webmaster site. Webmaster Central on Google Adsense has very easy to follow tools that will help Google to index your blogs. Webmaster Central guides you through the process of setting up and adding a site map to your blog. Google Webmaster also helps you to configure your blog to make it searchable.
Register your blogs with Google Analytics. Google Analytics tracks your blog for navigation, user issues, search and ad placement. Google Analytics tracks your blog's activity. You will need to allow Google Analytics to add a tracking tool to your blog. This shows on your computer as a tracking cookie, but these do not harm your computer or slow it down. Each cookie will be deleted when you clear cookies, or if you set your computer to clear cookies daily, as I do.
Check your Google Adsense keyword activity tool on your Google Reports page. Google will tell you which keywords are getting the most hits.
On your gadgets menu, place a search tool on your blog. Set it to search only on your blog or links that you've added to your blog. I've linked all my blogs to each other, so that when a searches requests information on my blog, she is taken to any webpages that I may have written on the subject.
Provide feedback to Google Adsense on which of your ads are doing well. I have found that ads offering free game play seem to get a large amounts of hits. Also, movie preview trailers seem to do very well.
Take advantage of all free advertising resources that are available for your blog. For more on writing, blogging and making a living at it, visit me at www.pennypincherpost.blogspot.com and www.thewritersgarden.blogspot.com.
