Adsense Latest Update

There is no question that you can make some good money with Google AdSense, but you’re setting yourself up for disaster if you make any of these Top 10 mistakes!

1. Do not use fake information when opening your Google AdSense account.

Google says that’s a no-no and they will cut your account off and keep all the money you may have earned. Besides, trying to hide your true identity can cause serious problems with the I.R.S. or whoever your tax authority is.

2. Do not hack or modify Google AdSense code other than to change the parameters that Google authorizes you to change.

Any attempt to bypass Google’s built-in algorithms not only poses a danger to the integrity of the network, but it threatens the financial modle that Google operates under. You’re not dealing with some Mom-and-Pop company here, and Google has the legal muscle and deep enough pockets to drag you through every court in the land if you damage their business with your hacking antics.

3. Keep AdSense ads off of your registration, confirmation, and all "thank you" pages.

Don’t ask me why you can’t put your ads there. It makes sense to me that those would be wonderful locations. Google thinks otherwise, however, and doing so is a hanging offense according to their Terms of Service.

4. Do not display AdSense ads and a competitor's ads (like Overture's) on the same page at the same time.

That just makes plain good sense. Google doesn’t demand 100% SITE loyalty from you, but they do insist that their own ads not be cluttered up by offerings from their competitors.

5. Don't "beg for clicks" or provide any incentive for clicking on your Google AdSense ads.

This is a biggie and you see this rule violated all the time. Any of the “get paid to do stuff” sites that put Google ads in the member’s control panels are walking the plank and they don’t even realize it. Even those sites with the polite little messages asking you to “help keep my site running by clicking on our sponsor’s ads” are asking to be cut off if those happen to be Google ads.

6. Never click on the ads running on your own site, even if you are genuinely interested in the product or service and are thinking of buying it!

Nothing screams FRAUD louder than a webmaster running up his or her own click counts by happily clicking on ads fromtheir own site. The Google Gods can track this activity and it won’t be long until you find yourself getting a goodbye note from their fraud team.

7. No misleading labeling

Google is very specific about what text can be placed around their ads. Their Terms of Service state: “Publishers may not label the ads with text other than ‘sponsored links’ or ‘advertisements.’ This includes any text directly above our ads that could be confused with, or attempt to be associated with Google ads.”

This is to keep visitors from becoming confused and barking up Google’s tree when they clicked on an ad that led to a porn site instead of the recipe site they were expecting to visit.

8. Avoid keyword spamming and other divisive tricks

You may be tempted to buy one of those “generates thousands of key-word rich pages in seconds” programs that are so popular these days but I’ll tell you this: Their days are numbered. Google is wise to such shenanigans and they will be hot on your trail. Other prohibited gimmicks include:

• ”Sneaky” page redirects that send a visitor off to a different site then they were expecting to visit.

• Multiple sites, domains, pages, etc. which have substantially duplicate content.

• Hidden text or links of any type.

• Excessive outbound links on any page. Google recommends no more than 100. I’d keep it way below that.

• And here is a nugget of wisdom straight from Google’s mouth: “Do not participate in link schemes designed to increase your site's ranking or PageRank. In particular, avoid links to web spammers or "bad neighborhoods" on the web as your website may be affected adversely by those links.

9. Don’t advertise anything on Google’s prohibited items list.

It’s a lot shorter lists than PayPal’s or eBay’s, but it includes a lot of the same stuff like hacking/cracking content, porn, illegal drugs, gambling sites, beer or hard alcohol (I guess wine is OK), weapons, and the other usual stuff.

10. And the 10th dumbest thing NOT to do with Google AdSense is to let the other nine things stop you from running an honest site that’s designed to make the most out of this very profitable opportunity that Google offers!

AdSense for feeds allows web publishers to earn by placing targeted Google ads in their feeds. AdSense for feeds works the way the rest of the AdSense program works: by delivering ads that are relevant to your content and your readers.

Like other AdSense ads, feed ads can be paid in two ways: by click, or by impression. Feed ads can also be targeted in two ways.

* contextually targeted to the content in your feed
* targeted by advertisers to your specific feed when you set up an ad placement

You can control the frequency, appearance, and positioning of Google ads in your feeds. The ad size is automatically determined based on where your feed is appearing.

Soure: Google Adsense

Today I’ll be posting a step by step guy on how to add Inline AdSense code to the middle of your blog posts. Not only AdSense, but you can use this for Yahoo! Publisher Network ads, Bidvertiser and etc. We’ll be going through all the details and utilizing a plugin, and a simple theme hack to complete the trick which will add AdSense block within all your blog posts, published already and to be be published.

But, first of all, why would you want to add inline AdSense Code? Because that improves your AdSense Ad block visibility. You blog post will wrap around the Inline AdSense slot, so that’ll make sure a good number of your visitors reading the post will ultimately see the Ad - instantly boosting your AdSense CTR…

Ready? Here we go… We will insert a blog of AdSense code to everyone of your posts, making the post wrap around the block, to the top left corner. (I’ll show you how to customize this later in the post)

he Method - Adding AdSense code

1. Copy your AdSense code and keep it in the clipboard.

2. Open your wordpress/” class=”kblinker” target=”_blank” title=”More about Wordpress »”>wordpress »”>wordpress theme editor and open the Single Post Template (single.php) or whichever the template file for your Single Posts. (We’ll add AdSense only to the individual posts)

3. Then find the line of code which says:

4. Got it? Awesome! Now, right before this code, insert a new line and type out the following coding. Replace with your AdSense code. (A screen shot is given below)

5. Update your theme changes! And you’re done with adding the AdSense code.

Now, you must be able to see an AdSense code being placed Inline with all your posts to the top left corner.

How to customize the position?

Simple. First, you must understand a few things.

One, the php code you hunted down: “” - resembles the function which will call your blog posts’ text. Not the header, just the text and the body content i.e. Images and etc. So, if you insert the AdSense code after this line, unlike the previous example, you should see the AdSense block after each post.

Two, in the Div Container code: “

” - “float: left;” means that you’d align the AdSense block to the left of the post. To make it align to the opposite end, just replace it with “float: right;”.

AdSense Myths & Cures

Posted by bonoriau | 07:21

If you run adsense on your blog or website you have probably read about how to increase your income almost overnight. Many of these ideas might seem ridiculous at first, but then you go ahead and try them anyway to see if you can stretch your visitors for that extra dollar.

For your convenience, I have created a list of the common suggestions given to those who want to increase their income and stated why or why they aren’t a myth. I have also listed the “Ugliness factor” which shows on a 0-10 scale how much the “cure” will effect your pages look and feel for the worst.

Block MFA ads from your website
Myth or Cure: Myth.
AdSense detects the highest paying ads for each webpage. If an MFA is appearing on your site it is because it is the highest bidder. Blocking the MFA will only result in lower earnings overall.
Ugliness factor: 0

Look for low paying pages and remove AdSense
Myth or Cure: Cure.
If a page on your website consistently receives low paying ads while the rest of your site receives higher paying ads, it is possible that this page is bringing your other pages down. However, if this page has high traffic compared to your other pages, your earnings will be less without it. So choose wisely.
Ugliness factor: 0

Use the heatmap to place your ads
Myth or Cure: Cure.
Heatmaps are different for every website, but the general line of sight when coming to a new page is from top left to the middle and slowly to the right. If you place an ad in a ‘red’ spot you will earn more. To find out your own sites heatmap, check out CrazyEgg or you can look at a general heatmap for a quick reference. The ugliness factor depends on where, what, and how many.
Ugliness factor: 5

Place the most visible ad highest in your HTML file
Myth or Cure: Cure.
AdSense places the highest paying ad at the top of the highest ad within your HTML file. If you must, use CSS to make sure the highest paying ad is also the most visible.
Ugliness factor: 0

Use adlinks under your header
Myth or Cure: Cure.
The header is a high traffic area when it comes to the heatmap. So why not place an ad directly where the visitor will look? Adlinks are less intrusive because they are smaller but still ugly, especially in the middle of a layout.
Ugliness factor: 9

Blend the ads
Myth or Cure: Cure.
As long as you don’t create your entire website to look exactly like the ad (including the font-family and font-size) this should increase your earnings.
Ugliness factor: 2

Use complimentary colors for the ads
Myth or Cure: Cure.
Like blending ads, this will not kill the look and feel of your website. Using complimentary colors will give your visitors more of a hint that they are looking at an ad as opposed to just blending–which may or may not be better than blending the ad.
Ugliness factor: 2

Use obscure colors for the ads
Myth or Cure: Myth.
Using obscure colors compared to your layout is never the way to go. It is not only ugly, but will annoy your visitors so much they won’t return.
Ugliness factor: 10

Turn on image ads
Myth or Cure: Cure.
Choosing “Text and image ads” will give Google a wider range of ads to choose from when displaying the best performing ad. The downside? Not all websites want to show images.
Ugliness factor: 5

Use medium and large rectangles
Myth or Cure: Cure.
Medium and large rectangles have the largest inventory because they not only include image ads, but also video ads. They are also the easiest to see and generally look the best within content.
Ugliness factor: 2

Review products
Myth or Cure: Cure.
When it comes to getting money, reviews are the best way to get it (besides selling the product yourself). By reviewing a specific product you entice visitors to buy–offer them ads and they will click. Although, you might be better off placing an affiliate ad for the product instead of using AdSense.
Ugliness factor: 0

Place more ads on each page
Myth or Cure: Myth & Cure.
It depends on how many you are showing and how much content the page has. AdSense places the highest paying ads on the highest ad within your HTML source file. This means that the more ads you place the more low paying ads there will be, which will take away clicks from the other higher paying ones. So be sure not to place too many.
Ugliness factor: 5

Place less ads on each page
Myth or Cure: Myth & Cure.
It depends on how many ads you are showing. With less ads you will know visitors are clicking on the highest paying ad possible. However, the less ads the less visibility they get, meaning less clicks. This could go either way.
Ugliness factor: 0

Remove low performing pages
Myth or Cure: Cure.
Low performing pages (as in low CPM and low earnings overall) can hurt you with smart pricing. By removing low performing pages, the higher performing ones will most likely earn more.
Ugliness factor: 0

Place an ad block below content pages
Myth or Cure: Cure.
If you have plenty of content adding an ad block below it may improve your earnings. This is because someone who reads an entire article is more likely to be persuaded and willing to click and buy.
Ugliness factor: 4

Use h1s, h2s, title tags
Myth or Cure: Cure.
Using header tags and the title tag will increase earnings. Not only will this give you more visitors through search engines, but it will also tell Google more coherently what your page is about so they can show more relevant ads.
Ugliness factor: 0
