Google AdSense has been hailed as the easiest way for anyone to make money off their website. This is because all it involves is setting up a website that has valuable information to offer to the public and then applying to Google for an AdSense account.

Even though whilst creating revenue is the main motive that people utilize AdSense, it's not the only reason. Some use AdSense as a means of making their website more significant to web page visitors. Anyone who displays an AdSense ad is considered a publisher, whereas anyone who purchases the adverts which are displayed through AdSense is called an advertiser.

Once you've started to build up an income, then you can start to experiment with placing and colour of your ads. If you can improve your click through rate (CTR) on your ads, then you can make more money from the same level of traffic.

So you've spent a lot of time putting up intelligent and useful content on a beautifully designed site…shame that you've got to tarnish such wondrous aesthetics with Adsense. But guess what…you don't have to! You can easily blend your ads in to compliment the overall layout of your site. First thing Get rid of that border delineating your ads. Next, make your Adsense text the same colour as that of the rest of your site. People are more likely to click on it thinking it's part of that useful content on your site.

A large number of people tend to simply use templates to create their websites. While this is not a problem in itself, most people tend to use single page templates so that the numbers of design elements are limited as well as their content input. However, experts know that this is not the best technique.

Single page website does not allow you to build separate themes based on high traffic keywords. This also means that you will not have highly targeted ads on your website. This drastically reduces the chances of you getting a high CTR for ads on your website. AdSense tips provided by experts will encourage you to have at least 15 different pages for website, each with a distinct theme of its own.

Adsense is a numbers game…

The more websites you have, the more money you make. All those little amounts combine into one big monthly check. But how do you go about building multiple sites? Well, one thing you can do is buy those Adsense website templates you see all over the internet.

Instead of putting all your time into one website, why not put a small amount of time into many websites and start building a Virtual Real Estate Empire. Now each website might only earn between $0.10 and $0.50 per day, but if you had 10 websites, you'd be getting $1 - $5 per day. With a 100 sites, you'd get $10 - $50 per day.

This is somewhere it can really pay to listen to the experts, just one eBook that I downloaded more than tripled the income from my own sites. Also, read up as much free information as you can, sign up for courses from the experts and try out new ideas. If you can get your CTR into double figures you'll be doing OK, although rumour has it that some of the experts have really high click through's.
 
AConceptually, the entire process or route of making bucks through Google Adsense depends on three major factors – the volume of traffic that your site draws, number of visitors clicking on your ads and money you receives at every generated click. While drafting your ad, the most important factor you need to figure out is exclusiveness. It is very essential to create your Google Adsense ads as different as possible from your website. In order to form an image of a decent, worthy blog, you must have a good amount of quality content that ensure a positive effect on traffic. Some of the very essential components of coeval blog sites are opt-in box, auto responder set up on the back end, RSS feeds, daily new and fresh content, Adsense towers, membership capabilities, picture galleries and a whole host of other tricks and tactics. Also, display You Tube videos that are related to the subject matter. However, when it comes to making huge bucks, the most reliable ways coming from Adsense are distributing articles through Zine and Press Releases. Another workable method used to increase adsense revenue is raising the number of targeted visitors that visit your adsense-content page.

Moreover, as far as the basic, workable techniques of exploding your Adsense revenues are concerned, try to check out two basic sources googleincomemachine.com and Googledecoded.com. These sources flash tested and scientifically proved techniques that let you understand and execute the fundamentals of Google Adsense. However, it is natural that people Earning good through Adsense generally don't like to disclose their earnings as they are scared of getting terminated by the program and also, any discussion over average EPC/CTR/CPM is a waste of time. With Adsense, clicking on your own ads is senseless and hence, to maximize your potential with it, you must ensure to make your site content available to content crawler.

Some of the other required, common components of Google Adsense codes are a software to forfeit a fully-fledged website, packages of ready-written Private Label Rights articles, membership sites for PLR packages on any topic ranking high in keyword analyses, or ready-made content-rich sites. In addition to this, it is also mandatory to keep updating your website for better raise in Google Adsense Profits. Moreover, all those people who think affiliate marketing is a great deal of work, time and efforts, also find it better to deal with Adsense ads on a page as it comparatively far easier. Your page should be designed as a source offering some additional subject matter information and must feature Adsense ads. Although it is true that Adsense stats usually get updated after every 2 hours, but you need not worry even if you do not encounter any change in your stats for over 12 hours. In fact, the procedure should be executed and evaluated very carefully and patiently to produce maximum value from every eventual Adsense click.
 
That is a recurrent question among bloggers, specially among those starting out. Many people defend that there is no right answer, and I agree to a certain extent. There are bloggers out there posting once a week and attaining tremendous success. Usually, however, those are CEO's of large corporations or famous writers who already had a loyal audience even before starting to blog.

Quality certainly comes before quantity, but if you are serious about blogging you will need to have both. This means that you will need to post at least five times a week.

Now, do not get me wrong here. I am not arguing that you should publish some Shakespearesque posts every other day. Just make sure that you update the blog regularly, be it with an opinion, a short reference or a review about something interesting.
 
A blog is a website on which the owner publishes articles, videos, graphics and other informative materials. On a blog, the blog entries are displayed in the reverse order as the latest entry is displayed at the top and all the old entries are displayed beneath it. Usually, people create blogs in order to express their opinions over other topics but now-a-days, people have started building blogs instead of creating static websites based on static HTML pages as it's very easy to create a blog when compared to building a static website based on static HTML pages.

An interesting feature of a blog is that the readers are allowed to post their opinions on the blog in the form of comments on the published articles. This provides a way for readers to interact with the author and vice-versa. Usually, text and images are used for publishing articles on the blogs but it's possible to publish videos as well.

A blog can be used for a number of purposes. An individual can maintain a personal blog in order to create an online dairy for sharing day-to-day experiences whereas companies create blogs to announce new products and to inform the users about the progress of the company. Some people create blogs for discussing some specific topics and they do so by sharing their opinions and articles on the blog.
 
Learn the easiest ways to search in google and make quick, easy, appropriate results.
  1. Explicit Phrase:
    Lets say you are looking for content about internet marketing. Instead of just typing internet marketing into the Google search box, you will likely be better off searching explicitly for the phrase. To do this, simply enclose the search phrase within double quotes. example: "internet marketing"
  2. Exclude Words:
    Lets say you want to search for content about internet marketing, but you want to exclude any results that contain the term advertising. To do this, simply use the "-" sign in front of the word you want to exclude. example internet marketing -advertising
  3. Site Specific Search:
    Often, you want to search a specific website for content that matches a certain phrase. Even if the site doesn't support a built-in search feature, you can use Google to search the site for your term. Simply use the "site:somesite.com" modifier. example: "internet marketing" site:Internet Marketing Blog
  4. Similar Words and Synonyms:
    Let's say you are want to include a word in your search, but want to include results that contain similar words or synonyms. To do this, use the "~" in front of the word.example: "internet marketing" ~professional
  5. Specific Document Types:
    If you're looking to find results that are of a specific type, you can use the modifier "filetype:". For example, you might want to find only PowerPoint presentations related to internet marketing.
    example: "internet marketing" filetype:ppt
  6. This OR That:
    By default, when you do a search, Google will include all the terms specified in the search. If you are looking for any one of one or more terms to match, then you can use the OR operator. (Note: The OR has to be capitalized). example: internet marketing OR advertising
  7. Phone Listing:
    Let's say someone calls you on your mobile number and you don't know how it is. If all you have is a phone number, you can look it up on Google using the phonebook feature.
    Example: phonebook:617-555-1212 (note: the provided number does not work – you'll have to use a real number to get any results).
  8. Phone Listing:
    Let's say someone calls you on your mobile number and you don't know how it is. If all you have is a phone number, you can look it up on Google using the phonebook feature.
    example: phonebook:617-555-1212 (note: the provided number does not work – you'll have to use a real number to get any results).
  9. Numeric Ranges:
    This is a rarely used, but highly useful tip. Let's say you want to find results that contain any of a range of numbers. You can do this by using the X..Y modifier (in case this is hard to read, what's between the X and Y are two periods. This type of search is useful for years (as shown below), prices or anywhere where you want to provide a series of numbers. example: president 1940..1950
  10. Stock (Ticker Symbol):
    Just enter a valid ticker symbol as your search term and Google will give you the current financials and a quick thumb-nail chart for the stock. example: GOOG
  11. Calculator:
    The next time you need to do a quick calculation, instead of bringing up the Calculator applet, you can just type your expression in to Google. example: 48512 * 1.02
  12. Word Definitions:
    If you need to quickly look up the definition of a word or phrase, simply use the "define:" command.

How can a company like Automattic make money if they are giving away all their products (including WordPress) for free? Someone asked this question to WordPress founder Matt at WordCamp India and he surprised, at least some of us, by saying that Automattic is profitable.
Here's how WordPress makes money according to the creator himself:
  • Blog Hosting - WordPress offers blog hosting services at $500 per month to big publishers like Om Malik, All Things D and CNN's Political Ticker among others. They use WordPress.com's server infrastructure to host your blog and therefore the performance will obviously be great but unlike other web hosting services, WordPress VIP Hosting doesn't accept everyone who applies so good luck.
  • Google AdSense - Free blogs hosted on WordPress.com may sometimes carry Google ads but these ads may only appear if all the following three conditions are met:
  • 1. The visitor is not using Firefox browser.
    2. He has logged out of his WordPress account, if he has one.
    3. The referring source is not a WordPress powered blog. So a person reaching abc.wordpress.com from xyz.wordpress.com won't see any Google Ads.
    Even with all these conditions, the revenue generated from serving Google AdSense ads on WordPress.com hosted blog may still be significant as do around a billion page views per month.
  • Automattic Kismet - You don't see Viagra spam in your blog posts because it all gets filtered automatically by Automattic Kismet (Akismet for short), the excellent spam protection plug-in available for WordPress.Now Akismet spam catching technology is free for personal blogs but if you maintain a corporate blog or run a network of blogs, you are required to buy a commercial license of Akismet that starts at around $50 per month.What may surprise you is that professional bloggers, or anyone who is making more than $500 per month in advertising revenue from a WordPress blog, also needs to pay a $5 per month fee for the Akismet license.
  • Premium Accounts - While anyone can host a blog on WordPress.com for free, they charge you a fee if you want to buy additional storage space for your multimedia files or want to use a custom web domain instead of the default wordpress.com sub-domain. These are premium features.There's also (unconfirmed) talk that WordPress may soon allow users to add AdSense in their free blogs for a subscription fee.
  • Web Host Referrals - WordPress.org suggests of list of third-party web hosting companies where you may self-host your WordPress blog(s) for a fee. Now all these are referral links so Automattic gets a commission per sale.In fact, this hosting referral system may be extremely profitable for Automattic because if you search for "WordPress Hosting" on Google (a very competitive keyword phrase), the first sponsored link on the Google results page is paid by WordPress itself and it says - "Top 5 WordPress Web Hosts - Chosen by the developers of the WordPress blogging software".
  • WordPress Support - If you need help with WordPress (or WordPress MU) but the free support forums aren't solving the purpose, consider subscribing to the Support Network of Automattic.  The WordPress development team will help you solve problems related to your WordPress system and the response time can be as low as 6 hours. This service is primarily for Enterprise users who are willing to shell out a $2.5-5k per year for support.
  • Poll Daddy - I am not sure if Matt discussed this but Automattic also provides a paid version of Poll Daddy where you can have unlimited number of questions per survey and there's no Poll Daddy branding in your polls or surveys.
 
In what is perhaps the most shocking announcement made in some time regarding the vast world of the Internet, a New York doctor has just released a very private "secret" he's been using since the earliest days of targeted paid advertising at search engines.

He admitted without hesitation that he's gotten over $87 million in pay-per-click advertising over the last nearly 8 years at such search engines as Google, Overture, MSN, Yahoo and others, and resulting in his having amassed a $300 million fortune!

In the past 2 years alone he's netted over $166 million as a result of what he calls a very simple "oversight" promoters online have altogether missed.

So valuable this "oversight" has proven that he's finally decided to share it with the rest of us.

And his timing couldn't be better!…

- Since going public Google's ads haven't become any cheaper!
- Other paid-for search engine advertising at large is rising faster than inflation can keep up!

"Back in the day" even an affiliate could just go to some website, sign up free to sell some product (such as with Amazon stores or the vast ebooks at ClickBank) and then just place a small 4-line pay-per-click ad, fine tune it, and then sit back and make money on autopilot.

But with rising costs this is getting much, much harder, and has literally seen the demise of many, many affiliate businesses go completely under.

But now with the release of this New Englander's super-secret, webmasters, promoters, both big and small business owners, as well as affiliates with shoestring budgets are back in the game!

When asked why he kept this "oversight" secret, the New Yorker responded "I knew I had a good thing, quite possibly a monopoly over any market I cared to try … I made a success of 16 web businesses in less than a decade … do you honestly blame me? …"

But now he's decided to share his know-how as he knows that doing so doesn't take a single dollar away from his $300 million fortune, and it won't cause widespread usage to the degree that it will even put a dent in search engine activity.

To be sure the good doctor had the sense to consult several Internet experts and "macroeconomists" just to be on the safe side.

Additionally, you should know that nothing about his secret either robs search engines (so you don't have to fear Google coming after you or is anything about it illegal in any other way.

What you may even find strangely surprising about his secret is the fact that it actually "helps" search engines make even more money! (You'll have to see it for yourself to understand how this is actually possible!)

But I feel it only fair to warn you that this doctor fellow from New England is a tad eccentric and self-admittedly "moody" and he's threatened to withdraw this secret at some point soon without so much as a single day's notice … (Northerners!)

So if I were you I'd not take any chances because although he may keep it available for the next 2 months, he may also take it off the market just 2 days from now (and then you'll kick yourself saying "Dad-gummit! I knew I should have grabbed that when I had the chance!" … so don't let this happen).
 
External Optimization deals with the points you should remember while promoting your website over web, the external world. This part of optimization not only influences the ranking, but also influences the relevancy of ads. This part of optimization takes time, and your control over it is limited sometimes.

Anchor TextKeywords in anchor text enhance the relevance of the target page with regard to the keywords used. Every page of your website should be made relevant through optimized anchor text containing important keywords, matching the theme of the website.

Try to make link partners link to you with the anchor text you specify (but please don’t force them). The inclusion of important keywords in the anchor text can make a big difference in the final ranking as well as the relevance of ads on your website. All the important search engines give due importance to the anchor text (both on your website as well as on the external websites linking to your pages).

Also, it’s a good idea to keep changing your Anchor text while the link development campaigns. Varied options of title and description make search engines give your website wider coverage. Again, you can choose the keywords to be used in the anchor text according to your choice (Traffic or payouts).

It is important to understand that as your Page Rank (PR) and resultant traffic increases, Google may increase your payouts. However, if you are getting highly untargeted traffic (or fraud traffic), your payouts automatically decrease with a period of time. This is because of the phenomenon called SMART PRICING. That is why Anchor Text is so important.
Getting Back LinksThe number of incoming links to your website may not have direct impact over your Adsense ads relevancy. However, the anchor text with which your link partners are linking not only gets you direct traffic, but also promotes your website to certain segments of traffic surfing on search engines.

When you target wrong keywords, it attracts wrong segments of traffic. This decreases your CTR as well as the earnings you could have had from that traffic. You can say, it affects the relevancy of your ads. When the ads that Google broadcasts are not relevant to your traffic, the results are damp.
PromotionTo get the most relevant ads, it is important that the links that you are getting from other websites should have proper anchor text. Your article gets prominence on the search engine because of the relevant keyword used as anchor text. Even the links on your own pages should have relevant anchor text. This will help you get more target traffic and resultant higher revenue.

Other ways to promote your website include getting inward links from free or paid sources, and exchanging links from authority or important websites having good search engine ranking. Links placed at the top of the page get more importance, so try for that. There are many more things you can do to promote your website and earn more Adsense money.
