1. I added units to my Big WebsitesDaily Blog Tips and Daily Writing Tips are mylargest websites in terms of traffic. They aregetting close to one million monthly pageviews(combined). Despite that I was not usingAdSense on them, mainly because the directsponsorship model was working relatively well.A few months prior I chose to load someAdSense units on the locales, be that as it may,and the outcomes were extremely positive.Around 70% of the help I created to my profitoriginated from these two locales. In themeantime I figured out how to keep the otheradaptation strategies working fine, and noperuser ever griped about the new promotions(more on that later).Regardless of the possibility that your blog is asof now profiting with direct supporters andassociate showcasing, along these lines, youcould at present figure out how to increase yourincome by deliberately including some AdSenseunits.2. I added units to my Small WebsitesAs many webmasters do, I have a bunch of smallwebsites scattered around the web. Some are onfree hosted platforms like Blogger, and others areself hosted sites that I abandoned along the way.Most of these sites still get traffic, however. Notmuch, but combined the numbers get decent.I figured that adding AdSense units to all thesesites could yield some money, and I was right.The main reason is that, since these areabandoned sites and don’t have loyal visitors, Ican place the units very aggressively. Theresultwas a very high CTR (Click-through rate), whichcompensates the small traffic levels.Don’t underestimate the earning potentialofsmall websites, especially if you are willing toplace AdSense units aggressively.3. I used the Large UnitsIf you want to make money with AdSenseyou’llinevitably need to use one of these units: the336×280 large rectangle, the 300×250 rectangle,the 120×600 large skyscraper or the 728×90leaderboard.Whenever I tried to use smaller units the resultswere disappointing. Even if I positioned themaggressively the CTR was just too low.All four units mentioned above can producegood results, but the best performing oneis byfar the 336×280 large rectangle, and that is theone I used to boost my earnings.4. I placed the Units above the FoldMy first trial was to place the 336×280 largerectangle between the post and the commentssection of my blogs. The results were OK.I thendecided to try placing them below the post titlesfor one week, and the CTR skyrocketed. In fact Istill need to find a placement/unit combinationthat will beat placing a 336×280 unit below posttitles.I knew this rule, but I guess I needed to test andget confirmation. The rule is: if you want tomake money with Google AdSense, you mustplace your units above the fold.5. I Focused on Organic TrafficMy main concern with adding a large AdSenseunit right below my post titles was that some ofthe loyal readers could get annoyed with it. Atthe same time I knew that loyal readers becomead blind quite fast, and that the bulk of mymoney would come from organic visitors (i.e.,people coming via search engines to my posts).To solve this problem I decided to display thelarge rectangle only on posts older than sevendays (using the Why Do Work WordPress plugin).It worked like a charm, as loyal readers don’teven notice the ad units when they are browsingthrough my recent posts, and organic visitorsalmost always see the ads because they usuallyland on posts older than seven days.6. I started using AdSense for SearchI was not sure how much money I would be ableto make with AdSense for Search, but I was nothappy with the search results provided byWordPress, so I decided to give it a shotanyway.Currently I am making around $60 monthly withAdSense for Search. It is not much, but if yousum it over one year we are talking about$720.On top of that the search results are as relevantas you’ll get, so it is a win win situation.7. I started using AdSense for FeedsAnother AdSense item I chose to attemptwasthe AdSense for Feeds one. I selected to showthe advertisements beneath my nourish things(you can likewise put them on top, however thiswould be excessively nosy as I would seeit).The outcomes here were truly great, both as faras CTR and profit.You obviously need a large RSS subscriber baseto make this work, but I am guessing that evenwith a couple thousand subscribers you couldalready make $100 monthly from feed ads.8. I played around with section targetingSection targeting is an AdSense feature thatallows you to suggest specific sections of yoursite that should be used when matching ads.You can r ead more about it here .I found that on specialty and little sites segmentfocusing on can help a considerable measure.Periodically Google was showing disconnectedpromotions on these destinations in light of thefact that there weren’t sufficient pages. Inthewake of utilizing area focusing on I figured outhow to expand the importance of the promotionsand subsequently the CTRs.9. I tested with Different Colors and FontsOn the off chance that you empowered bothpicture and content advertisements on your unitsyou ought to have the capacity to alter the huesand textual styles. I did some testing withbothof these components, and it expanded thenumbers. Nothing emotional, however it wascertainly justified regardless of my time.You just need to track your CTR for a couple ofweeks. Then change the color or font andtrack itfor another week, seeing if you can beat theoriginal CTR. If you can, keep the new format. Ifyou the performance decreased, try a new coloror font and track the CTR for another week, untilyou find the optimal combination.On my sites the best results came from makingthe ad units merge with the look of the site, buton some sites contrasting colors performbetter,so testing is a must.
