What’s Your Target Audience?
There are certain websites that will never make money with AdSense, no matter how great their content is. Whether you make money with AdSense or not depends largely on the type of audience you are trying to attract with the content on your website.
If your content is targeted at software programmers and you write about programming languages, for example, you will never make much money because tech savvy programmers never click on ads – they find the information they need and just leave the website, without clicking on anything.
On the other hand, if you’ve a sales oriented website that sells coupons and promos on various products, you will have a lot of success and make big profits with AdSense. So, ask yourself if you’re targeting the right audience. Experiment with various niches till you find the most profitable one.
Do Your Keyword Research…
It’s all about keywords…the right keywords ensure that your website gets found and drives traffic to it. The right CPC keywords also determine which types of ads are displayed on your website or blog. You don’t want your website to be cluttered with all types of ads that make no sense whatsoever.
For example, if you have a website that reviews tech products, you don’t want ads for ladies’ apparel! The only way to ensure that this does not happen is to be very careful while selecting keywords. Use Jaaxy or Google Keyword Planner, find the right keywords, build your content around them and ensure that the keyword density is not more than 3% at any cost.
Select Ads that Look Good
It would help a lot if your ads look good. People have to be attracted by the ads, just as they are attracted by your content. If the ads are too small or cluttered, nobody would click on them. Use large rectangular ads of size 336×280 or more. You can also try displaying video ads because they are very popular and present excellent profit making opportunities on AdSense.
Track the Success of Your Ads
How well are your ads doing? You need to monitor your ads on a regular basis. Google provides free analytics tools that tell you which ads make you money and which don’t. You’ll realize that certain types of ads work best during a particular time of the year, while some do well throughout the year. Some ads do very well during the holiday season – so this is something to keep in mind.
Next, track how well your articles or blog posts are doing. Find out which article or blog post got you the most page views or traffic. This should offer excellent clues on what your readers expect from you. Find out which keywords get you the most traffic and hence make the most money. These are just some of the tips and tricks you should use to make money with Google AdSense.
