What You Can Earn From Google AdSense
1. How much can I earn with Google AdSense?
It's a question everyone asks before getting on the AdSense car. There is no universal answer: some webmasters get full-time income from a single AdSense site, while others with five or more websites can not even cover the cost of housing.
What you do with Google AdSense depends on many factors. Some of them are out of your control: what is the general state of the economy or what advertisers Google has managed to attract. But there are many factors in control. For example, of course, if you have a website with only 10 pages, you will have thousands of times less than if you have 10 websites with thousands of pages. In summary, all rights, the more content you have, the more you will earn.
2. Choose a profitable niche
But the extra volume, an even more important consideration: what is on your site, or more professional, in what niche your status is located. Different niches are not the same. Niches, such as health and finance, where clicks are common and important places, such as culture or history, where you can do almost anything with AdSense. That's why you should choose a niche that pays clicks. It is true that these niches are very, very competitive, but even in the most competitive niche, there is always room for another good website. Once you have selected a niche, you have high volume keywords to find and optimize your site. To search for keywords with high search volume, using ad words.
3. Where to place the ads?
The strategic positioning of the ad units is crucial for your profits. Logically, if you have ads. Where you should place them You must place the ads in visible places. You will get more clicks. The best places are above the banner or below the menu bar. Basically, ads should be closer to the text field. Optimize your ads for a higher percentage of clicks. Strategic positioning is important, but there are other aspects that you should keep in mind when optimizing your pages for a high CTR. Here are some tips on how to make fine adjustments to your ad units for more clicks:
(a) Choose the correct ad size
AdSense offers many sizes in the form of rectangles, squares, buttons and bars, but the truth is that only some of them are fine. Sizes in general, I recommend 300 x 250, 338 x 280, 728 x 90, 160 x 600 and 320 x 50. The first two are intended for use, which corresponds third in the header of the site, and 160 x 60 works better submenu, use the menu on the left / right side. Of course, you can also experiment with the sizes and see if they work better for you.
(b) Choose a different ad unit
You can add up to 3 ad units and three link units and two search boxes per page. This means that the ad blocks and blocks with links to a number of units to choose from, a choice of different sizes required. For example, it is possible. At 728 x 90 or 160 x 600 units on x-section / menu page and two, that is, 300 x 250 and 338 280 to choose what type of ad text, the choice between text, image and text ads only. In general, the text works better, because what happens when the images are too invasive, but you should try it and see what makes you more clicks.
(c) Choose the color
The links are not the only ones that can benefit from the correct color. However, it's simple: the same colors you use in the menu. Regular ad units, it's not that simple. Essentially, the options are to merge the unit (for example, links and text of the same color and size), the use of the contrast media system (for example, if your site is green, red is for used messages) so that the ads be the rest, or you stick to the Google standard. What is the best? Nobody knows! What kind of place (for example, merchant) does not work for others. So, the only thing you can do is, the trial and error method, and which of the three do you see? Or, if you want a scientific approach, AB performance test.
4. Finally, how to handle traffic?
Finally, a very important requirement to earn money with AdSense. Maybe you have a high CTR, but if you can not direct traffic to your website, you will not earn money.
