How To Use Free Blogs & Google Adsense To Earn $100 - $1,000 Daily (Part 1) - View my Complete Profile for Part 2.

What is Google AdSense?
If you are already familiar with AdSense and already have an account and a
website, you can probably skip this section. However, if you’ve heard about
this “Google AdSense thing” and aren’t sure exactly how it works or how to
make money with it, then this section is for you.

AdSense in a nutshell is, Google drop some JavaScript code on your web
Pages or Blogger Blogs if you don’t have a website, Google figures out what ads to show, and when people click on those
ads you earn money. Once a month Google will either send you a check or
make a direct deposit into your bank account for the money that you earned
in the month prior (as long as you’ve earned at least $100). So, for
example, if you earn $1,000 in January, toward the end of February you will
get paid your $1,000. Toward the end of March you will get paid for
February’s clicks, etc.
But you can’t earn a dime without an AdSense account, can you? If you
don’t already have an AdSense account, the next section will tell how to go
about getting one–even if you don’t have a website.

How to Get an AdSense Account on the First Try
If you don’t already have an AdSense account, you can apply for one at:
http://www.google.com/adsense/
Just click the big “Click here to Apply” button and you’ll be taken through an
application process. You will need to already have a decent looking
website to get an account.
Yes, that’s right. If you don’t have a website, don’t apply for an account yet.
Or if your website is a personal home page or doesn’t look very professional,
don’t apply yet–you’ll probably be rejected. There is a way to almost always
get an AdSense account on the first try, and it’s easy to do. Here are the
steps:
Step 1: Setup a blog at Blogger.com/start
Google doesn’t usually accept free websites into their AdSense program.
The exception to that rule are Blogger.com blogs. So if you don’t have a
website yet or have one that isn’t very professional, but you want to get an
AdSense account and get started, go to Blogger and create a blog on the
topic you want to make money with. Choosing the best money-making
topics is covered in a later section, so you might want to hold off on doing
this until you’ve read that section.
Step 2: Make some well thought-out posts on your new blog
Twice a day for three days go to your new blog and write a good,
informative post. If your blog is about model airplanes, you might discuss
some of the best tools for building the airplanes, or which companies create
the best quality models, etc. If your blog is about health insurance you
might make posts about how to get the best insurance rates, the pros and
cons of HMOs, or whatever other topics you can think of on the subject.
Get a good five or six posts on the blog over a period of three or four days,
and then go apply for an AdSense account using your new blog url as the
website you submit on the application.
Google loves to hand out AdSense accounts for Blogger blogs, and they will
almost always accept a decent blog publisher into the program.
Here’s the beautiful part: Once you have an AdSense account, you can
put your AdSense code on any of your websites without Google having to
approve each one. The only exceptions are adult or gambling related sites.
Google doesn’t allow those into the program, so do not put your AdSense
code on sites like that–it could get you kicked out of the program.
Once you have an account, it’s time to start building sites and making
money! But before we get into that, there’s a little vocabulary that you’ll
need to know to understand what your AdSense reports are telling you.
That’s covered in the next section.
An AdSense Vocabulary Lesson
If you’ve visited any forums where people discuss AdSense, you’ll see all
kinds of abbreviations and hear all kinds of terms that you might not
understand. Also, when you login to your AdSense account for the first time
and look at the reports, you’ll see a number of abbreviations as well. Here’s
a list of the most common ones, and a plain-english description of what they
mean:
Page Impressions
When somebody goes to your website and loads a page in their web
browser, Google counts that as one “page impression”. That means one pair
of eyes has seen one page of your site. If that same person browses around
and looks at 10 pages of your site, Google counts that as 10 page
impressions. So basically a page impression is just how many of your pages
were looked at by people.
Page CTR
CTR stands for “click through rate”. It’s expressed as a percentage of the
page impressions that resulted in somebody clicking one of the AdSense
ads. So, for example, if you had 1,000 page impressions, and those 1,000
page impressions resulted in 100 clicks on the ads, that is a 10% Page CTR
(100/1000 = 10%).
Page eCPM
eCPM stands for “effective cost per millie”. “Millie” means thousand. CPM is
what the old world of banner advertisements used in pricing their ads. If a
site had a $10 CPM, that meant that you as an advertiser would pay $10 for
every 1,000 page impressions that your ad was shown on.
With AdSense, eCPM is telling you how much you are earning (or will earn),
on average, for every 1,000 page impressions. If you have a $25 eCPM,
that means you are earning (or will earn) $25 in clicks for every 1,000 page
impressions on your site.
Google shows you this figure so you can get an idea of how much money they
are paying you than a banner advertising network will pay you. I have some
sites with eCPM values as high as $300, $500, $700 and more. That means
for every 1,000 page impressions I’m earning $300-$700 on those sites.
How I do that will be discussed later.
EPC
You won’t see the term EPC in your Google AdSense reports, but you’ll hear
it a lot if you hang out on AdSense forums. EPC stands for “earnings per
click”, and just means how much you earn for each click.
Channels
By default, all of your page impressions and clicks are dropped into one
giant bucket. By default, you have no way of knowing how much each
individual site earned (if you have multiple sites), or how much each
individual page earned, etc. “Channels” are Google’s way of letting you
break down your earnings into “sections” so you can analyze each website
or each page independently to see where the money is coming from. Google
only lets you have 200 channels, which is pretty lousy if you have a lot of
sites or a very large site. I’ll discuss how to get around that in a later
section.
AdLinks (or Ad Units)
AdLinks, or Ad Units, are just another type of AdSense ad. The basic
AdSense ad is a block of links with short descriptions that when a visitor
clicks, you get paid. Ad Links are a little different. They show linked topics
that are related to your page, and when people click on those they are then
taken to a different page and presented with a list of ads. If they decide to
click on one of those ads, you get paid. You can see what AdLinks look like
by visiting Google’s “Ad Formats” page. It shows all of the available ad
formats, including Ad Links:
https://www.google.com/adsense/adformats
Ad Filter
Sometimes Google might decide to show ads on your page that aren’t really
related to your page content at all. When that happens, you have the option
of going into your AdSense account and adding those sites to your Ad Filter.
Google will not show ads from any site that you put in your Ad Filter. Also,
if your competitor’s ads show up on your pages, that’s another reason to use
your Ad Filter.
Alright, Enough Vocabulary!
Enough with the vocabulary lesson! Let’s get down to business and see how
the AdSense Big Dogs earn the big bucks.
Getting the Most out of AdSense Page 17
What it Takes to Earn Big Bucks with AdSense
The general idea of Google AdSense is very, very simple: drop some code on
your web pages and when people click the ads, you make money.
But there are a number of important questions to ask when building sites so
that you earn the most money for your time and effort. The most important
of those questions are:
1. How do I design a site so that will get the most clicks?
2. What topics are the most valuable and will earn me the most money?
3. How can I track the results of my efforts to see where I can expand
and improve?
Those are the big questions. And there are good answers to those
questions! Let’s discuss each one, one step at a time:
1. Designing a Site to Get the Most Clicks
Site design is very important in the quest to earn money with AdSense. If
you put the wrong kinds of ads up, or put them in the wrong place on the
page, you might get some clicks, but you will earn a lot less than if you
know the best way to format your AdSense ads and follow it. I’ll give you a
general idea of how to do this, but for precise details about how to exactly
layout your website to maximize revenue, read my ebook “Triple Your
AdSense CTR In Three Easy Steps”, which is available in my AdSense Gold
package. http://www.AdsenseGold.com/
When designing your site, you want to put the ads where they will be seen
and clicked the most. This is usually toward the top of the page. The ads
should definitely be visible when the page first opens. Don’t hide them away
on the sides or at the bottom of the page.
Secondly, you should make the ads blend in with the site so that they don’t
look like ads. This means making the colors of the ads match the colors of
your site. People have become “blind” to advertisements since they are so
used to seeing them on websites, so you have to get those ads in front of
them without them realizing they are ads. Then, instead of outright ignoring
the ads, they can look at what the ads are offering and make a conscious
decision of whether or not to click. When they do choose to click, you get
paid.
2. Selecting the Most Valuable Topics
It’s pretty obvious that some advertisements are worth more than others.
People spend millions of dollars for a 30 second commercial during the

Super Bowl (and other huge sporting events) because that ad space is so
valuable. But they will only pay a fraction of that for their ad to be shown
during a regular television show. The same is true with AdWords advertisers.
For advertisers, certain keywords are worth a lot more than others.
Sometimes this might be counter-intuitive. For example, you might think
that the keywords “sports cars” would be very valuable because sports cars
are very expensive. But among the group of people searching for “sports
cars” are a lot of people who just want to see pictures of sports cars, or
people who just have an interest in sports cars but aren’t looking to buy
one.
On the other hand, people searching for “sports car insurance”–ah!–they are
looking to buy. I mean, who searches for “sports car insurance” for fun,
right? As it turns out the value of clicks for the terms “sports car insurance”
is almost seven times as much as the value of clicks for just “sports
cars”.
This means that it’s very important that you know what keywords to target
before you build content for your web pages. If you’re just building a hobby
site and AdSense is just there to pay for the web hosting or earn you a few
extra dollars a month that might not matter to you.
But if you’re looking to earn real money with AdSense, then you want to
build websites that are focused on the keywords that pay you the most
money when people click. You can find out how much keywords are worth by setting up an AdWords account and using the AdWords “Traffic Estimator Tool”. Here’s what it lookslike:

How To Use Free Blogs & Google Adsense To Earn $100 - $1,000 Daily (Part 2)

AdWords Traffic Estimator Tool
As you can see, this tool lets you enter some keywords, set the Max CPC
(cost per click), and select the language and the countries you want to see
the estimates for. Always use “100.00” as the Max CPC, because that tells
you the highest bids for the keywords, which is what you really want to
know. Once you’ve entered the information, you click “Continue”. The
results for this particular set of information at this particular time are shown
below:
AdWords Traffic Estimator Tool Results
Notice that “sports car insurance” has a value of $12.81 per click, versus
only $1.86 for “sports cars”–like I said, “sports car insurance” is worth
almost seven times more. So before putting up pages and websites, you
can run the keywords you’re thinking of building content for through this
tool and see if your idea of what pays best is correct or not.
But I’m warning you, using this method is like shooting in the dark.
As I mentioned before, what you think should be high paying and what
actually is high paying are often very different. The best way to quickly find

out what the real high paying keywords are is to get a list of keywords that
have already been run through the Traffic Estimator and were found to have
a high cost per click (CPC) value.
The best list of high paying keywords and their AdWords CPC values right
now is available from KeywordCountry.com
Also, you need to track where your traffic is coming from, and which traffic
sources are getting you the most clicks. Are you getting a lot of traffic from
Google? Or Yahoo? Or MSN? Of the big three search engines, which one is
sending you the most clicks? Knowing this tells you where to focus your
efforts. If Google makes you the most money, you should focus your efforts
on ranking well in Google first. If it’s Yahoo or MSN, you focus on those
first.
Putting it All Together
By discovering the answers to the three questions covered above, it didn’t
take me long before AdSense let me quit my day job as a computer
programmer and start working for myself–it only took about six months.
And I didn’t know any of what I’m teaching you in this article when I started
out. You’re six steps ahead of me just because you’re reading this article!
Design your sites to maximize clicks, build your content around the highest
paying topics using KeywordCountry.com
That’s what it takes. Repeat that process
over and over and you’re on your way to becoming an AdSense Big Dog
yourself!
6. Building Cost Effective AdSense Sites
One thing that makes AdSense different from other businesses such as
creating and selling your own products online is that it requires a lot more
websites with a lot more content. Your AdSense money comes from having
a lot of pages in the search engines, with a lot of links to those pages. Lots
of visitors means lots of clicks, and that means lots of content on lots of
websites.
If this sounds expensive, it can be–but it doesn’t have to be. I’m going to
discuss two resources that are available to keep your costs down and your
profits up. They are:
1. Creating blogs
2. Affordable web hosting
3. Creating a lot of content
Creating Blogs
If your budget is really tight, you can always start off by creating
Blogger.com blogs and putting AdSense on them. You can promote those
blogs and get clicks and not have to pay monthly fees for hosting. Blogger
blogs can be formatted using the best formats shown here: www.bloggingtothebank.com
they’re great for generating AdSense revenue.
I have a number of Blogger blogs from my early days of AdSense site
creation. And dangit, I just love the interface. It’s simple and easy to use.
You don’t have to know any HTML code, their templates look great, and a
respectable blog is easy to get people to link to.
So if you’re just starting out and don’t have the money for hosting fees, a
Blogger blog is the way to go. Once you start earning some AdSense
money, then you can start expanding into paid hosting. I’ll discuss how to
get traffic to your blogs (and your websites) in a later section.
Affordable Web Hosting
You may already have a little money to invest, or maybe you’ve grown your
Blogger blogs to make enough money to pay for web hosting. The next step
is to move to paid hosting.
Paid hosting gives you a lot of freedom and abilities that blogs simply do
not. The ability to run scripts, and have your own domain name (ie., www.mydomain.com), to have an email

they’re great for generating AdSense revenue.

Blogger blog is the way to go. Once you start earning some AdSense
money, then you can start expanding into paid hosting. I’ll discuss how to
get traffic to your blogs (and your websites) in a later section.
Equally importantly was the support. I know my support guy by name–
Simon. His response times have been fantastic, and as the AQHost.com
business has grown and expanded and even changed location, there has
been very little down time, and all the way Simon has been informative,
supportive and helpful.
When first starting out with AdSense you don’t need a lot of money, but if
you’re creating all of the content for your website, you will need a lot of
time. Now, I highly recommend creating websites with your own content if
you have the time and ability to do so. Write you own articles and post
them to your site or blogs. That ensures that your site will have uniqueness and
staying power. People will link to it and it will grow and prosper.
But when you’re first starting out, it helps to get a kick-start by using other
people’s content. Is that plagiarism? Not at all. In fact, the authors of this
free content want you to use it on your websites. They encourage you to do
so! Why?
Here’s how it works: these authors write these articles and submit them to
free article sites where you can go and copy the articles to put on your own
site. The articles contain an “About the Author” section which you are
required to keep in the article. That section points to the author’s website.
If a few hundred or a few thousand other websites have this article on their
site, imagine how much traffic that will bring to the author’s site as people
click the link in the “About the Author” section!
Another benefit to the author is that his site gains link popularity. I’ll tell
you more about why that’s so important in the section on getting traffic to
your website. But for now, just know that it is very important.
The benefit to you of using these articles is that you get content for your
website without having to write it yourself! It takes time to gather up all of
these articles for your site, which you can dig up at:
www.EzineArticles.com
www.ArticleCity.com
www.GoArticles.com
www.Article-Directory.net etc

Search Engines and Duplicate Content
It’s important to note that other sites are using these articles, and the
search engines don’t like what they call “duplicate content”–that is, the
same information appearing on a bunch of different sites.
To prevent the search engines from seeing your article pages as duplicate
content, all you have to do is put between 30% and 40% of unique content
on the page in addition to the article. This means your site’s header and
footer, and some extra related information.
RSS feeds are great for this. In case you don’t know, an RSS feed is just a
list of short articles or posts or summaries of content that appears on
another web site. It’s a kind of “snapshot” of what’s new at a website or
blog. With the great proliferation of blogs these days, and with almost every
blog having an RSS feed, the world is your oyster in terms of extra content
for your pages!
It’s easy to find RSS feeds to use on your sites. Personally, I like MSN’s RSS
feed search. Just go to search.msn.com and search for “feed:[keywords]”.
For example, if your site is about internet marketing, then search at MSN for
“feed:internet marketing” (no quotes). Many of the RSS feeds allow you to
republish them on your site. Find some that do and copy/paste those feeds
onto the pages of your website. That way the pages are unique in the eyes
of the search engines and your pages don’t suffer from the “duplicate
content penalty”.

Putting it All Together
If you don’t have the money to pay for hosting, or if you just want to make
a little money from AdSense before spending any, then Blogger.com blogs
are the way to go..
Once you graduate from Blogger.com to paid hosting, then be sure to find a
great host that supports all of the features and technologies outlined above.
Great support is key. The host I recommend is AQHost.com. They have
always been very, very good to me and I’ve hosted several sites with them.
Finally, I recommend you write a lot of unique content yourself, but to get
yourself started, use free articles from article submission sites. Be
sure to make the pages unique using RSS feeds or other content.
Of course, a website won’t make you a dime if nobody ever sees it! So the
next section will deal with how to get traffic to your websites so you can
start making some real AdSense money!

7. Getting Traffic to Your Websites
The formula for AdSense discussed so far is pretty simple: the right page
layout + high paying topics + great tracking = AdSense profits! But there’s
one piece missing from that formula. That piece is traffic. After all, if
there’s nobody coming to your site to click the ads, you won’t earn anything.
The best way to get traffic to your sites is to have your sites rank well in the
search engines for the keywords that your pages are targeting. There are a
number of techniques you can use to do this. The steps I use to accomplish
this are:
1. Research the Keywords
2. Analyze the Competition
3. On Page Optimization
4. Get Lots of Links to the Pages
8. Closing Comments
So there you have it, the basics of starting a profitable AdSense business.
You are now six steps ahead of where I was when I first started. When I
created my first website I didn’t know what layout worked best for AdSense.
I didn’t know that some keywords paid huge amounts more than others. I
didn’t know I could get free content to kick-start my AdSense earnings, and
I had no clue about what search engine optimization was or how to make it
work for me.
Despite that I was still able to quit my job as in
about six months. It took a lot of dedication and learning, but it paid off
handsomely!
In conclusion, I strongly recommend that you take a close look at the
products and services mentioned in this ebook. make up what I still
use to create profitable AdSense websites:

blog. With the great proliferation of blogs these days, and with almost every
blog having an RSS feed, the world is your oyster in terms of extra content
for your pages!
It’s easy to find RSS feeds to use on your sites. Personally, I like MSN’s RSS
feed search. Just go to search.msn.com and search for “feed:[keywords]”.
For example, if your site is about internet marketing, then search at MSN for
“feed:internet marketing” (no quotes). Many of the RSS feeds allow you to
republish them on your site. Find some that do and copy/paste those feeds
onto the pages of your website. That way the pages are unique in the eyes
of the search engines and your pages don’t suffer from the “duplicate
content penalty”.

Putting it All Together
If you don’t have the money to pay for hosting, or if you just want to make
a little money from AdSense before spending any, then Blogger.com blogs
are the way to go..
Once you graduate from Blogger.com to paid hosting, then be sure to find a
great host that supports all of the features and technologies outlined above.
Great support is key. The host I recommend is AQHost.com. They have
always been very, very good to me and I’ve hosted several sites with them.
Finally, I recommend you write a lot of unique content yourself, but to get
yourself started, use free articles from article submission sites. Be
sure to make the pages unique using RSS feeds or other content.
Of course, a website won’t make you a dime if nobody ever sees it! So the
next section will deal with how to get traffic to your websites so you can
start making some real AdSense money!

7. Getting Traffic to Your Websites
The formula for AdSense discussed so far is pretty simple: the right page
layout + high paying topics + great tracking = AdSense profits! But there’s
one piece missing from that formula. That piece is traffic. After all, if
there’s nobody coming to your site to click the ads, you won’t earn anything.
The best way to get traffic to your sites is to have your sites rank well in the
search engines for the keywords that your pages are targeting. There are a
number of techniques you can use to do this. The steps I use to accomplish
this are:
1. Research the Keywords
2. Analyze the Competition
3. On Page Optimization
4. Get Lots of Links to the Pages
8. Closing Comments
So there you have it, the basics of starting a profitable AdSense business.
You are now six steps ahead of where I was when I first started. When I
created my first website I didn’t know what layout worked best for AdSense.
I didn’t know that some keywords paid huge amounts more than others. I
didn’t know I could get free content to kick-start my AdSense earnings, and
I had no clue about what search engine optimization was or how to make it
work for me.
Despite that I was still able to quit my job as in
about six months. It took a lot of dedication and learning, but it paid off
handsomely!
In conclusion, I strongly recommend that you take a close look at the
products and services mentioned in this ebook. make up what I still
use to create profitable AdSense websites:

How To Use Free Blogs & Google Adsense To Earn $100 - $1,000 Daily (Part 1) - View my Complete Profile for Part 2.

What is Google AdSense?
If you are already familiar with AdSense and already have an account and a
website, you can probably skip this section. However, if you’ve heard about
this “Google AdSense thing” and aren’t sure exactly how it works or how to
make money with it, then this section is for you.

AdSense in a nutshell is, Google drop some JavaScript code on your web
Pages or Blogger Blogs if you don’t have a website, Google figures out what ads to show, and when people click on those
ads you earn money. Once a month Google will either send you a check or
make a direct deposit into your bank account for the money that you earned
in the month prior (as long as you’ve earned at least $100). So, for
example, if you earn $1,000 in January, toward the end of February you will
get paid your $1,000. Toward the end of March you will get paid for
February’s clicks, etc.
But you can’t earn a dime without an AdSense account, can you? If you
don’t already have an AdSense account, the next section will tell how to go
about getting one–even if you don’t have a website.

How to Get an AdSense Account on the First Try
If you don’t already have an AdSense account, you can apply for one at:
http://www.google.com/adsense/
Just click the big “Click here to Apply” button and you’ll be taken through an
application process. You will need to already have a decent looking
website to get an account.
Yes, that’s right. If you don’t have a website, don’t apply for an account yet.
Or if your website is a personal home page or doesn’t look very professional,
don’t apply yet–you’ll probably be rejected. There is a way to almost always
get an AdSense account on the first try, and it’s easy to do. Here are the
steps:
Step 1: Setup a blog at Blogger.com/start
Google doesn’t usually accept free websites into their AdSense program.
The exception to that rule are Blogger.com blogs. So if you don’t have a
website yet or have one that isn’t very professional, but you want to get an
AdSense account and get started, go to Blogger and create a blog on the
topic you want to make money with. Choosing the best money-making
topics is covered in a later section, so you might want to hold off on doing
this until you’ve read that section.
Step 2: Make some well thought-out posts on your new blog
Twice a day for three days go to your new blog and write a good,
informative post. If your blog is about model airplanes, you might discuss
some of the best tools for building the airplanes, or which companies create
the best quality models, etc. If your blog is about health insurance you
might make posts about how to get the best insurance rates, the pros and
cons of HMOs, or whatever other topics you can think of on the subject.
Get a good five or six posts on the blog over a period of three or four days,
and then go apply for an AdSense account using your new blog url as the
website you submit on the application.
Google loves to hand out AdSense accounts for Blogger blogs, and they will
almost always accept a decent blog publisher into the program.
Here’s the beautiful part: Once you have an AdSense account, you can
put your AdSense code on any of your websites without Google having to
approve each one. The only exceptions are adult or gambling related sites.
Google doesn’t allow those into the program, so do not put your AdSense
code on sites like that–it could get you kicked out of the program.
Once you have an account, it’s time to start building sites and making
money! But before we get into that, there’s a little vocabulary that you’ll
need to know to understand what your AdSense reports are telling you.
That’s covered in the next section.
An AdSense Vocabulary Lesson
If you’ve visited any forums where people discuss AdSense, you’ll see all
kinds of abbreviations and hear all kinds of terms that you might not
understand. Also, when you login to your AdSense account for the first time
and look at the reports, you’ll see a number of abbreviations as well. Here’s
a list of the most common ones, and a plain-english description of what they
mean:
Page Impressions
When somebody goes to your website and loads a page in their web
browser, Google counts that as one “page impression”. That means one pair
of eyes has seen one page of your site. If that same person browses around
and looks at 10 pages of your site, Google counts that as 10 page
impressions. So basically a page impression is just how many of your pages
were looked at by people.
Page CTR
CTR stands for “click through rate”. It’s expressed as a percentage of the
page impressions that resulted in somebody clicking one of the AdSense
ads. So, for example, if you had 1,000 page impressions, and those 1,000
page impressions resulted in 100 clicks on the ads, that is a 10% Page CTR
(100/1000 = 10%).
Page eCPM
eCPM stands for “effective cost per millie”. “Millie” means thousand. CPM is
what the old world of banner advertisements used in pricing their ads. If a
site had a $10 CPM, that meant that you as an advertiser would pay $10 for
every 1,000 page impressions that your ad was shown on.
With AdSense, eCPM is telling you how much you are earning (or will earn),
on average, for every 1,000 page impressions. If you have a $25 eCPM,
that means you are earning (or will earn) $25 in clicks for every 1,000 page
impressions on your site.
Google shows you this figure so you can get an idea of how much money they
are paying you than a banner advertising network will pay you. I have some
sites with eCPM values as high as $300, $500, $700 and more. That means
for every 1,000 page impressions I’m earning $300-$700 on those sites.
How I do that will be discussed later.
EPC
You won’t see the term EPC in your Google AdSense reports, but you’ll hear
it a lot if you hang out on AdSense forums. EPC stands for “earnings per
click”, and just means how much you earn for each click.
Channels
By default, all of your page impressions and clicks are dropped into one
giant bucket. By default, you have no way of knowing how much each
individual site earned (if you have multiple sites), or how much each
individual page earned, etc. “Channels” are Google’s way of letting you
break down your earnings into “sections” so you can analyze each website
or each page independently to see where the money is coming from. Google
only lets you have 200 channels, which is pretty lousy if you have a lot of
sites or a very large site. I’ll discuss how to get around that in a later
section.
AdLinks (or Ad Units)
AdLinks, or Ad Units, are just another type of AdSense ad. The basic
AdSense ad is a block of links with short descriptions that when a visitor
clicks, you get paid. Ad Links are a little different. They show linked topics
that are related to your page, and when people click on those they are then
taken to a different page and presented with a list of ads. If they decide to
click on one of those ads, you get paid. You can see what AdLinks look like
by visiting Google’s “Ad Formats” page. It shows all of the available ad
formats, including Ad Links:
https://www.google.com/adsense/adformats
Ad Filter
Sometimes Google might decide to show ads on your page that aren’t really
related to your page content at all. When that happens, you have the option
of going into your AdSense account and adding those sites to your Ad Filter.
Google will not show ads from any site that you put in your Ad Filter. Also,
if your competitor’s ads show up on your pages, that’s another reason to use
your Ad Filter.
Alright, Enough Vocabulary!
Enough with the vocabulary lesson! Let’s get down to business and see how
the AdSense Big Dogs earn the big bucks.
Getting the Most out of AdSense Page 17
What it Takes to Earn Big Bucks with AdSense
The general idea of Google AdSense is very, very simple: drop some code on
your web pages and when people click the ads, you make money.
But there are a number of important questions to ask when building sites so
that you earn the most money for your time and effort. The most important
of those questions are:
1. How do I design a site so that will get the most clicks?
2. What topics are the most valuable and will earn me the most money?
3. How can I track the results of my efforts to see where I can expand
and improve?
Those are the big questions. And there are good answers to those
questions! Let’s discuss each one, one step at a time:
1. Designing a Site to Get the Most Clicks
Site design is very important in the quest to earn money with AdSense. If
you put the wrong kinds of ads up, or put them in the wrong place on the
page, you might get some clicks, but you will earn a lot less than if you
know the best way to format your AdSense ads and follow it. I’ll give you a
general idea of how to do this, but for precise details about how to exactly
layout your website to maximize revenue, read my ebook “Triple Your
AdSense CTR In Three Easy Steps”, which is available in my AdSense Gold
package. http://www.AdsenseGold.com/
When designing your site, you want to put the ads where they will be seen
and clicked the most. This is usually toward the top of the page. The ads
should definitely be visible when the page first opens. Don’t hide them away
on the sides or at the bottom of the page.
Secondly, you should make the ads blend in with the site so that they don’t
look like ads. This means making the colors of the ads match the colors of
your site. People have become “blind” to advertisements since they are so
used to seeing them on websites, so you have to get those ads in front of
them without them realizing they are ads. Then, instead of outright ignoring
the ads, they can look at what the ads are offering and make a conscious
decision of whether or not to click. When they do choose to click, you get
paid.
2. Selecting the Most Valuable Topics
It’s pretty obvious that some advertisements are worth more than others.
People spend millions of dollars for a 30 second commercial during the

Super Bowl (and other huge sporting events) because that ad space is so
valuable. But they will only pay a fraction of that for their ad to be shown
during a regular television show. The same is true with AdWords advertisers.
For advertisers, certain keywords are worth a lot more than others.
Sometimes this might be counter-intuitive. For example, you might think
that the keywords “sports cars” would be very valuable because sports cars
are very expensive. But among the group of people searching for “sports
cars” are a lot of people who just want to see pictures of sports cars, or
people who just have an interest in sports cars but aren’t looking to buy
one.
On the other hand, people searching for “sports car insurance”–ah!–they are
looking to buy. I mean, who searches for “sports car insurance” for fun,
right? As it turns out the value of clicks for the terms “sports car insurance”
is almost seven times as much as the value of clicks for just “sports
cars”.
This means that it’s very important that you know what keywords to target
before you build content for your web pages. If you’re just building a hobby
site and AdSense is just there to pay for the web hosting or earn you a few
extra dollars a month that might not matter to you.
But if you’re looking to earn real money with AdSense, then you want to
build websites that are focused on the keywords that pay you the most
money when people click. You can find out how much keywords are worth by setting up an AdWords account and using the AdWords “Traffic Estimator Tool”. Here’s what it lookslike:
