Adsense Pirate – From $8 A Month To $800 A Month

INTRODUCTION

Imagine if every night when you go to sleep, you're making money. When you're watching television, you're making money. When you're out with your family, you're making money. I’ve made most of my money online through referral sites and recently got into Adsense. I’m writing this eBook because there is no income better than passive income. I make money while I'm writing. I make money while I’m asleep. I make money while I’m at the movies. I make money while I’m out with my friends. No matter what I’m making money by people visiting my websites and clicking relevant ads placed by me. I make money while I make money. My goal while writing this eBook is to provide tips and techniques that I used to get where I am using Google's Adsense program. I don't make thousands of dollars a month but I am making over $800 monthly from Adsense and it's passive income. I haven’t been using Adsense that long and I expect to have great success with it in the future once I get other projects off of my hands. I figured that if I could share this little bit of knowledge that I have with you and it works, then I’ve made a positive impact on at least one person! 4

Adsense Pirate – From $8 A Month To $800 A Month I would like to say that I am not an internet guru whatsoever and I cannot guarantee that you will too make extra money online just from reading this book. What I can tell you though that if you read this book and apply some of the things that I’ve told you – you should see an increase in your Adsense earnings. I also want to mention that I’m writing this book according to my personal experiences. I may not have struck gold using Google Adsense (yet) but since October Adsense has put $4000 extra dollars into my pocket, so why not yours? My name is Meji A. and my blog is 365Hustle.com. I hope you enjoy the read.

Organization & Preperation Organizing yourself should always be the first thing you do. I love organizing my goals, my clothes, everything. If you aren’t organized things that should take an hour end up not getting done at all sometimes. When I wrote this eBook, I wrote a chapter a day until I was finished. A lot of people make New Years Resolutions. And then they don’t stick to them. I’m one of those people, so earlier this year I devised a plan on how I’m going to be able to stick to my goals. I call this wonderful plan the 7-Day Plan. A lot us MMO (Make Money Online) people like to set goals, deadlines, and what not. Some people set realistic goals (which I believe fully in) and some people set ridiculous goals (ridiculous). I believe in setting realistic incremental goals. You crawl before you walk - You stretch before you run. This is how the 7-Day Plan works       

You go to Walgreens, get a notebook (I like the small 5-Star Ones). If you’re a PC person, open up a word document. Title the document or notebook paper for example - Dec 7th-Dec 14th Write down all your goals that you believe you can accomplish within those 7 Days Every morning look at the goals, choose one, and get it done. Every night look at your goal list, and cross out the ones you completed. Try and finish all your goals that you set in 7 days, then turn the page. Repeat from step #2.

The 7-Day Plan isn’t only effective in Internet Marketing/Make Money Online, but effective in all walks of life. Take your wife out to dinner, plan it, and complete it! Take out the trash, plan it, and complete it. Whatever it is, write it down, and get it done. And I’ll tell you what; you’d be surprised how much you can do in only 7 Days.

Humble Beginnings

Don’t think we all haven’t been there before. I know how it feels to check your Adsense account and see this crap every day. Day after day, the earnings aren’t getting any better but worse. The cockroaches that infest my kitchen couldn’t live off these earnings. Just kidding, no cockroaches. I did not know what I was doing wrong and what it took to make even $5 dollars a day with Adsense. How did I get myself out of this Adsense depression? I studied. I spent time learning and reading what other people do to make money with Adsense and then I formulated my own plan. I documented what I learned so you don’t have to go through the four and half months of Adsense failure that I went through. Every second I spent reading, and every month that my earnings actually decreased was worthwhile. The reason I say that is because now I can actually say I’ve had some success with Adsense and I know that all I have to do is replicate this success a few times over and I’m making a decent living from people clicking advertisements. I heard this saying on Twitter the other day - “Success consists of many little victories” Aren’t you ready to have a series of little victories and reach your goal?

Adsense Pirate – From $8 A Month To $800 A Month

Getting Started Before getting started with Google Adsense I scoured the internet for all the information and tools to give me a head start. I didn’t want to try and test things all the time. I read about what other people tried and tested, what works and what doesn’t. This helped me a lot when I decided on how I was going to approach choosing what niche to blog in and how to run my ads.

Choosing a Niche When I first started Blogging, I would just blog about anything I wanted. I thought if I wrote about something interesting everyday, people would come in flocks to my blog and I’d be getting more traffic than New York City at rush hour. Let’s just say, it didn’t work out. It’s important that you choose a niche! Not just any niche but one that interests you, and most importantly, one that interests others. You should ask yourself these questions listed below before you decide what you want your topic to be on.

Are you interested? I can’t stress the importance of being interested in the topic you’re writing on enough. The difference between working for someone else at a job you may not like is – the money is guaranteed. It takes hard work to get a blog up to the level that it’s bringing in a good income. A lot of people can’t bring themselves to get up everyday and write a new article or post about a topic they just aren’t interested in. So make sure you’re interested in what you write about – you’ll realize that the rewards may not only be monetary.

Popularity Contest!?! It’s important that topic that you’ll be taking on is popular. Not only if it’s popular, but if its popularity is growing! You don’t want to take on a topic that’s losing interest everyday. For example – writing about McCain and Palin now would not yield as many as it would have writing about them pre-election. Take your time and choose a topic that you think will be hot within the next few months. It may take a little research, but being the best in one event is better than being 2nd place in many. (How about if Michael Phelps got all Silver Medals? 2nd Place is the 1st loser) I highly recommend MicroNicheFinder can be beneficial in helping you find your niche through keyword research.

Adsense Pirate – From $8 A Month To $800 A Month Competition, where? Many bloggers end up causing their own demise by choosing a niche that has been done before, done again, killed, resurrected, and is still being done today. Remember, the internet is a big place, if you’ve thought of it, theres a 99% chance that someone may have thought of it before you. Do your research. Make sure you know it’s worth delving into before you’re already 2 feet deep. Find a smaller niche and become the authority. Rather than being mediocre in a saturated niche.

What aren’t they doing? I had this one guy who ranked above me in the search engine for a major keyword. What ticked me off is that his content wasn’t that great. A week later I took the first two spots on the search engine thanks to increasing the amount of content on my site. He was neglecting his audience. I was feeding them with fresh content daily. Find out what your competition isn’t talking about. For example – your competition might have a blog about iPhone rumors and updates. You could make your blog about iPhone applications and accessories. Just an example but I’m trying to show you the way to look at things. Think of a niche within a niche.

Is there enough to go around? Not food, but content. You need to make sue you aren’t going to run out of content after one or two posts. Make sure the topic you choose has an abundance of content that you can dive into or maybe something you already know about. Replenishing your site with fresh content not only keeps readers happy but it helps boost you up in the search engines. Places like Google, Ezinearticles, and just the internet as a whole should be able to provide you with enough content to keep the blog running for ages. Just don’t overdo your posts – save some for tomorrow if you know what I mean? One topic at a time is perfect; this will also come in handy in the future. If all else fails your can always rewrite PLR but I don’t recommend it. The best and most successful niche sites (when it comes to Adsense) are definitely sites that attract beginners. If you have a question who do you ask normally? Google. Answer peoples questions - Teach them How To Ride a Bike or How To Cook Baked Beans?

Adsense Pirate – From $8 A Month To $800 A Month When we’re new to something – we ask a lot of questions and seek a lot of information. Google answers those questions. Desiring instant gratification is something that we are all sometimes guilty of – if the right Ad pops up and it’s answering my question you’re damn right I’m going to click it. See where I’m going with this?

Choosing a Domain One of the most important things you must do is choose a domain. It’s the name of your site so it has to be important. Something relatively short and that people can remember is vital. I’ve had the most success choosing a domain name which matches the niche my site will be about. For example, if I decided I wanted to make a website about cell phone chargers – I’d try and create a domain name which includes the main keywords external hard drives or something of the sort. For example http://www.cellphonechargers.com or http://tmobileg1applications.com for a site about T-Mobile G1 Applications. You don’t always have to do it this way, and you can still become the authority in your niche. I’ve seen it happen too many times and I’m sure you have too. But I’m going by my personal experiences.

Finding Hosting I can’t stress the importance of having a reliable host. See it this way, how are you going to eat, if there is no food? How are you going to make money, if your sites are down constantly? A reliable host is definitely a very important aspect when it comes to making money online. If one of my sites go down I lose anywhere from $20-$50 that day. It adds up quickly. Once you’ve gotten a domain, you need to find a reliable host. Niche blogging can become an addiction after awhile so I use a Hostgator because they let me host unlimited sites. They also provide 24/7 support and rarely have downtime. You also get quite a bit of bang for your buck when it comes to resources like bandwidth. Check them out @ http://www.hostgator.com

The Adsense Overview

What is Google Adsense? Google Adsense is an ad program which enables people with websites and blogs to display relevant Google ads and earn money.

Adsense For Content Adsense “reads” your page and will develop relevant ads to your specifications to display on your page. Adsense does not “read” images so the more text your page has on a subject, the more relevant the advertisement may be. If you have a page full of pictures, the advertisements shown may not be relevant to your topic. Whereas, if you have a healthy mix of quality content and images (or even just content) your ads should pertain to your topic.

Adsense For Search AdSense for search is a free solution that allows publishers to place a search box on their site and earn revenue from relevant ads on the search results page. So each time a visitor searches your site for that “to die for” info, you could possibly be making money.

Adsense Pirate – From $8 A Month To $800 A Month Getting Paid With Adsense

There are many ways to earn revenue with Google AdSense -- AdSense for content and AdSense for search are two of the most widely available ways. With AdSense for content, you'll display Google ads on your site. These ads can be either cost-per-click (CPC) or cost-per-thousand-impression (CPM) ads. For CPC ads, you'll generate earnings when your users click on the ads. For CPM ads, you'll generate earnings in your account every time the ad appears on your site. AdSense for search lets you offer your users Google web search directly from your pages. By placing an AdSense for search box on your site, you'll generate earnings from ad clicks made by users on the search results pages. You won't, however, receive revenue from user searches through your AdSense for search box. When users perform searches on your site, but choose not to click on the ads on the search results pages, you will not receive any earnings. Google either sends you a check by mail or deposits the money straight into your bank account. A lot of people like to get their first paymnt in check form so they can frame it or use it as some sort of memento. I spent mine.

Registering With Adsense I would have included this in the beginning of the book under organization and preparation but I decided not to just in case some of the people reading this didn’t have a website In order to be accepted into Adsense you must already have a website/blog. It’s best for your blog to be targeted to a specific niche rather than for personal reasons, have quite a bit of content, and be written in English, French, German Italian, Dutch, Portuguese, Japanese, or Spanish.

For more tips, tools, and techniques check out my 11 blog – 365hustle.com


Adsense Pirate – From $8 A Month To $800 A Month I also suggest not having excessive advertising from other programs on your blog when you register for Adsense. It’s also best for your blog to be PG-13 as Google’s Adsense Program Policies say that the sites accepted into the program must not display pornography, excessive profanity, drugs etc etc. I highly suggest building your site and adding content first for at least a few weeks before applying Adsense to it. This way you’ve managed to build up some traffic and Google will see your site as an established credible blog and should accept you into their program.

Creating Your Site/Blog

I’m going to keep this Chapter brief since this E-Book is supposed to be about Adsense. The reason I decided to include this chapter is because in order to even sign up for Adsense you generally need your own site or blog. I build my blogs using Wordpress because of its easy usability, great themes and templates, and also because it’s free.

What Is WordPress? Wordpress is undoubtedly the most popular web blogging software on the net right now. Whether you’re an amateur or an advanced user, its ease of use makes it suitable for anyone. It has a great interface with a rich text editor and with advanced multimedia support. It’s also Open Source, so it’s free to install, use and distribute Wordpress on your site. Wordpress is going to become your best friend. It became mine. Me and Wordpress do everything together. We run, we walk, we work together, we cry together. I love Wordpress and Wordpress loves me. Wordpress is like my girlfriend, easy to manipulate, and does everything you want it to do. Only difference is Wordpress gets better with time. If you’re going to start Niche Blogging you’ll find that Wordpress is the way to go. It’s just so flexible that you have no choice but to fall in love with the things you can do with it. The plugins created for it expand its usability 100 fold. The themes range from hideous to “how did they do that?” And the majority of blogs you visit today, are most likely built on it.

Step 1: Log into your cPanel and click the Fantastico De Luxe icon

Step 2: On the left hand side find and click the Wordpress link.

Adsense Pirate – From $8 A Month To $800 A Month Step 3: Choose the New Installation option.

Step 4: Decide where exactly you want your blog to appear. If you want your blog to be http://www.yourdomain.com then leave that box blank. If not, then fill in the appropriate folder name. After you’ve done that, fill in the administrator details and the email account information and click Install Wordpress.

Adsense Pirate – From $8 A Month To $800 A Month Step 5: A new page should be loaded up for the installation. Click the Finish Installation button unless you run into some errors.

Step 6: Once you’ve finished installing Wordpress, the final screen will provide you with installation details. You can e-mail these details to a specified address so you can keep them for future reference.

Congratulations, you’ve just installed Wordpress.

My cPanel doesn’t have Fantastico!?!? That’s okay. Wordpress has created a handy guide for installing Wordpress manually – which is what I do every time. You can view their guide by clicking here. 16

Wordpress Themes Are Pretty Some people say it’s irrelevant others believe it’s essential. I’m one of those people who believe it only helps to have a nice theme. If you wanted to sell the blog in the future the beauty of the blog itself may be the unique selling point. There are many free Wordpress Themes that you can start with. A simple Google Search for Free Wordpress Themes will bring up some good results.

I am a sucker for Premium Wordpress Themes. WooThemes provides some great high end Wordpress Themes for an affordable price. I recommend the Developer Packs since you get to use the Theme as many times as you want in as many places as you want. They’ve just seemed to work so well for me that I don’t use anything else for my main projects and personal sites. It’s all personal preference though but I’m a very shallow person. I like 2 things to be beautiful: My Blogs and my women. Niche Adsense Themes For WordPress are also impressive because they are designed and optimized for Adsense and increasing your click through rate. Not only that but they are significantly cheaper than the premium themes.

For more tips, tools, and techniques check out my 17 blog – 365hustle.com


Adsense Pirate – From $8 A Month To $800 A Month Changing Wordpress Themes: If you’re using Wordpress 2.7 and above you’ll go to the Appearance tab on the left, if you’re using 2.6.5 and below you’ll go to the Design tab towards the top of the page. Both of these will take you to your theme directory and show you the available themes you have at your disposal. If you would like to change your theme follow the directions below. Step 1: First, obtain the theme that you like either a Free Wordpress Theme or Premium Wordpress Theme. Step 2: After you’ve saved the theme to your hard drive, all you need to do is upload in the ‘wp-content/themes directory of your website. You can either upload the .zip file of the theme in the ‘wp-content/themes’ directory via the cPanel File Manager Or You can Extract the file on your computer and upload the contents of it into you ‘wpcontent/themes’ directory via FTP. I prefer this way since it’s quicker.

Plugins – You Need Them Plugins are designed to extend the usability of Wordpress to do things it doesn’t normally do. Wordpress.org has a great Plugin Directory and all of them are free. Installing plugins is the same as installing Wordpress Themes, the only difference is you install the plugins in the ‘wp-content/plugins’ folder instead of the themes folder. Below are some plugins I hold in high regard. Wordpress Automatic Upgrade – No more digging in the FTP, uprade your Wordpress to the latest version by following simple steps. May not be needed if you have WP 2.7 All In One Adsense and YPN or Adsense Manager – I use these to insert Adsense within my posts. I like them because you don’t have to insert each ad individually. With a click of your mouse your site can serve ads site wide. Simple Tags - Gives you complete control of the tags on your website. Has a great autotag feature. Wordpress Admin Bar – Not as useful as it used to be when in the dashboard in 2.7, but when you’re on the site it works great for easy access to features. 18

Plugin Central – Great for letting you know when plugins are outdated and also for its quick plugin install feature. WP-SpamFree - An extremely powerful anti-spam plugin for WordPress that virtually eliminates comment spam, including trackback and pingbacks. WP-Stats - Simple, concise stats with no additional load on your server by plugging into WordPress.com's stat system.

SEO Plugins Google XML Sitemaps - Creates a Google Sitemap compliant with the XML-Sitemap of your Wordpress Blog All In One SEO Pack - Optimizes your Wordpress Blog for Search Engines HeadSpace2 - HeadSpace2 is an all-in-one meta-data manager that allows you to finetune the SEO potential of your site. SEO Friendly Images - SEO Friendly Images is a Wordpress optimization plugin which automatically updates all images with proper ALT and TITLE attributes.

Be Content With Your Content. I think people should always study a topic or write about what they know about. If they don’t know what they are talking about then they at least need to act like it. The whole point of this is to make money though, and sometimes people write absolute garbage to make money and it works. We’re trying to make money on Adsense here, and in order to make money on Adsense you need to feed the search engines, because that is where the substantial traffic will come from – the traffic that will be clicking your Adsense ads on a regular. I’m not going to get into what you should be writing about, I’d like to leave that up to your imagination. Like I said earlier in this E-Book though, don’t only concentrate on what’s hot right now, but concentrate on what is GENERATING HYPE. Scour the internet, listen to your peers, keep up with the latest news, and see into the future. That is not only good knowledge for Adsense but for choosing a niche in general. When I say be content with your content I mean you only have to write it once – so do it right the first time. I don’t always do the work myself though. Sometimes I use tools like PPCWebSpy and hire an article writer to do the rest.

Adsense Success = quantity & quality

To me, Adsense Success is measured in quality and quantity. It’s imperative that you serve quality ads (high paying and relevant) according to your niche on your website, have an abundance of quality targeted traffic, and place ads in quality positions on your site for optimal performance. quantity of quality Traffic + quality Ads + quality Placement of Ads = Adsense Success

The best thing about this formula is that you can mix and match. If you’re not getting ridiculous amounts of traffics but your ads are well placed, relevant, pay well, and attract a lot of clicks, you will still make money. If you’re ads are cheap but you’re getting high traffic levels and clicks, you will still make money. Get it?

Is that all? Yeah, that’s all. Sounds easy right? It’s not as easy as it sounds, but it is certainly achievable, and that’s what we’re aiming for.

The Formula Unraveled Traffic: It’s a well known fact that in order to make a substantial income with Adsense you are going need traffic. Not just any type of traffic, but a substantial amount of traffic. Not just a substantial amount of traffic, but a substantial amount of targeted traffic – traffic that is coming to your blog to find answers to their questions, remedies for their illnesses, and so on. The more people that see your blog, the more people that click ads.

Adsense Pirate – From $8 A Month To $800 A Month High Paying Ads: In order to get high paying ads, you have to be able to choose a niche that you believe advertisers are willing to pay good money to advertise their products. It may take a little research but it is definitely rewarding – new technology - think insurance & finance – those are just 2 obvious ones that come to mind. Relevant Ads: This one doesn’t take a genius to figure out. If your blog is about deodorant, you would want ads on your site relating to body odor and deodorant. Remember, people are traveling to your blog to get answers to their questions and for more information, if your ads are relevant to the subject than the likeliness of them getting clicked by someone increases. If your blog is displaying irrelevant ads about lampshades then they probably won’t get clicked which won’t make you very happy camper. Optimally Positioned and Designed Ads: Put your ads in a position where they catch people’s eye. If a Coke Machine didn’t have a big bottle of Coke on it and just had a Post-It-Note with the words “Carbonated Soda” written on it, we probably wouldn’t even notice it. But the fact that it catches our eye causes us to go over there and buy a soda. Your ads need to be attractive and positioned in a place for optimal results. The goal is to make money, don’t be afraid to put your ads in a place where people can see them.

Organic Traffic Tastes Good

High traffic volume gets you paid. Even if your ads aren’t high paying you can still make good money just from the sheer amount of clicks. Organic traffic is like organic food. It’s good, it’s healthy, and takes a lot less time and effort once you get it going. (I don’t know if that analogy worked, but it sounded good.) What I’m saying is that the people who click ads for the most part are the people who are finding your site via the search engine, whether it’s Live Search, Yahoo, Searchme, or the almighty Google. Those people are coming to your site looking for answers which you will provide them. Google sends droves of people to my site everyday from the four corners of the earth. They are the people who provide the clicks. Net smart people like yourself and I can see ads from a mile away and do our damndest to avoid them (If I find useful content on ones site, I always reward them though). Social traffic will not make you money! You want your traffic to be as targeted as possible. You can do this through article marketing and mainly SEO. Search Engine Optimization is the best way to promote your site without having to do a damn thing. Just set it up and get it done right the first time and boom, your site will automatically promote itself as long as you continue adding content and fresh back links for your keywords.

So How Do I Get This Healthy Traffic? It’s a combination of a combination of things. It really is. So I’m going to list them out for you. Domain Name: For the niche you decide to choose, try and get the main keywords and put them in your domain name. This is an automatic plus for anyone who is trying to rank 22

Adsense Pirate – From $8 A Month To $800 A Month high in the search engines. Just a little bit more work after you’ve done this and you should rank #1 for your keywords in your niche. It may take a little thinking and a little research, or you may just be one lucky son of a gun, but this is a great way to get good traffic. Try to use your keyword in your URL – it’s one of the basic rules of SEO. For example my site http://www.tmobileg1applications ranks #1 in Google for tmobile g1 applications – it brings in a fair amount everyday and gets a ridiculous amount of traffic for it’s main keywords - which are in the domain name. I’m sure you’ve heard this one before – quality content. I like to write the stuff myself but we all don’t have that much time. Focus on a few keywords but don’t over do it by putting your keyword as every other word. The writing doesn’t have to be too complex just good enough for the average person to enjoy the read – and the search engine as well. If you find yourself pressed for time hire an Article Writer and buy in bulk so you can get a discounted rate. Release 3-4 posts a week about every other day. I feel that you must constantly feed the SE with unique fresh content to get your site initially recognized. Once you have a bunch of pages indexed then things will start working for themselves and you don’t have to update as much. I still think even then you should update at least 2x weekly. Don’t let the competition catch up. Search Engine Optimization – If you use Wordpress for your blog – SEO is actually just a little bit more complex than you think. Many Wordpress bloggers, myself at one point, are guilty of installing the All In One SEO plugin and thinking that’s all we have to do. People even forget that you need to enter values into that plugin. I’m going to be providing you with the plugins that I was using that may have helped to get my site to rank #1 for its keyword. If your site is optimized for certain keywords and you have great content and relevant ads, why wouldn’t people click your ads? Your site is about recipes – you have good recipe content – your ads are about cooking and recipes – and they’re in a good location – they will be clicked – you will make money. This helps for not just SEO but for actually displaying relevant ads as well – so this is a little double whammy for you. The Title Tags of your post should include your blogs main keywords. If you’re blog is about learning how to play the violin and your site provides lessons and information on playing the violin, your title should look something like – How To Play The Violin | Free Online Violin Lessons – catch my drift? So now if someone is looking for that information and enters those keywords, you’ll be up there in their search.

Use your keywords in your URL. Use your keywords in your blog titles. Use your keywords in your Post Titles. Use your keywords in your post content. Use your keywords in the alt tags of your photos. You will get the best search results by only posting one post per page unless all your posts are related to the same keywords. Posting once per page will give you better search results especially if your posts are related to the same keywords.

Google Adwords Keyword Tool can help you when searching for good keywords.

Earn Links from Other Websites The more links you earn the more respected your site seems to Google. Of course you want links from respected sites, so go around a leave comments with a back link back to your site. If you’re site actually has enough good content this isn’t necessary as people should link back to you out of courtesy. But some people aren’t courteous. It’s been rumored that Meta keywords are beginning to go out of fashion with Google, so here is another way to use links to your advantage. When leaving a link to another site you want to leave a link with text wrapped around it. Ex.

Quality Ads Get Clicked High Paying Ads aren’t always that easy to find. It takes some research and a also a bit of luck to hope they are displayed on your page. As long as your niche has a few advertisers – well targeted ads are very easy to get your hands on.

The Importance of High Paying Ads They make you money when people click them, more than low paying ads. Just thought I’d provide some comic relief. Personally, I’m not a big fan of high paying ads. Why is that? Because I don’t have any ridiculously high paying ads on any of my websites, my money comes from the sheer amount of clicks my ads receive. I’ll definitely love high paying ads once I find an unsaturated niche that I can dominate with high paying ads of course.

How to Get High Paying Ads? Although, it’s a rare occasion that I get a high paying ad on my websites. There many ways for you to try and get high paying ads – which I will list below. Services – You can always try and find high paying keywords yourself which can sometimes be frustrating. Services like PPCWebSpy will do it for you. It may cost a few dollars but definitely can save time. Keep Trying – This might sound crazy but you never know what topic may be high paying. There are the known ones but like I said about choosing a niche – think outside the box and you may strike gold! Write about a certain topic – see how much you earn – and repeat. You’ll realize some topics make you more than others. Using Adsense Channels you can track certain pages/posts performances. Tools – You can use tools from 7 Search like their Keyword Suggestion Tool and their list of 100 top paying keywords – remember that these apply to their own advertising program, but maybe they’ll give you some ideas. Word Tracker is also a useful tool in helping you find keywords that people are currently searching for in top search engines. They also tell you how many other sites are targeting that same keyword. Remember – if you aren’t getting traffic, you won’t be getting that many clicks. So make sure you have your priorities straight.

Adsense Pirate – From $8 A Month To $800 A Month Well Targeted/Relevant Ads Now, you’ve gotten your traffic and everything is going well. One problem though, your ads aren’t remotely related to the content on your website. In turn, you aren’t getting that many clicks because your ads don’t interest your readers at all. It’s very important to have ads that are relevant to the content you’re serving on your page. Sometimes, fixing the problem of irrelevant ads lies in the simplest tactics. Other times, it’s not so simple.

Where Do I Start? First things first, you have to choose the right title tags for your blog. This is important when it comes to getting relevant Adsense ads since the first thing the search bot is going to read is the title tags. It’s best that you put some of your main keywords and a brief description of your blog in the title tags. (If you’re using All In One SEO just go to Settings >> All In One SEO) A blog about the newest cell phones and where to buy them might have title tags such as – Newest Cell Phones | Buy New Cell Phones Online – or something of the sort. Taking the main key phrases and using them in your title tag automatically tells the Adsense bot that your blog is about cell phones. This should help the bot show ads relevant to your subject. Another tip that should help your blog serve relevant ads is by increasing your keyword density. If your keyword is only mentioned once or twice on the page, more dominant keyword(s) on your page may take hold of your ads instead. It is not certain what the Adsense bot looks for in order to determine your ads, but placing your main keyword in your title, at least once in the first paragraph, and then scatter around the rest of your texts should increase your chances of showing relevant ads. Putting your keywords into the URL of the page should also help too. You can edit your URL on the post page on Wordpress. If you go into Settings >> Permalinks on Wordpress I suggest using custom permalinks in the following format – /%category%/%postname%/ What this will do is set you post slug to match your title for the most part – so if the title of your post is search engine optimized, the URL will be optimized also. Your sidebar is also important to inspect if you aren’t showing relevant ads. The Adsense bot is combing through your whole page from header to footer. You may notice that some of your ads are showing up because of certain words you have in your sidebar. It may take a little tinkering but this is always important to take note of. Many bloggers trying to get relevant ads have a bad habit of having multiple posts per page on different topics. Doing this will only confuse the Adsense bot, pretty much 26

Adsense Pirate – From $8 A Month To $800 A Month you’re giving it too much info to process, too many topics to choose from. Dumb it down. Write about one topic per page. Change your blog settings so it only shows one post per page. This should help with getting better targeted ads. If you are going to do this though make sure your posts are of a good length and quite informative. It's not hard to get these well targeted ads. As long as your content is in order and you are using keywords for the ads that you are trying to make show, then they should. For example, I recently was having an awful day on one of my sites on Adsense. I wrote a post on that site that day that happened to be about Finance – the clicks did not increase, but the CPC did – and within an hour I had made 20 dollars. I had a minipiphany (a miniepiphany). Trial and Error will be your best friend on your Adsense journey. But trial and error without research is useless. Make sure you've done your research before you start trying things that you think are new, chances are they've been done before. Now that you've gotten well targeted and high paying ads – where are you going to place them for optimum clickability?

Placing & Design Stop signs are placed at a perfect height for us to see them as we drive by. The same goes with billboards – just in the right place for us to see them as we cruise down the freeway. The same deal applies to your Adsense ads that you place on your site. You want them to be in a place where it's not intrusive to the main goal of your website – but intrusive enough for them to read and induce a click. A simple tweaking of the placement of your ads can result in double the amount of clicks your currently getting. Success with Adsense is not written on stone. Some people prefer link ads that blend in with the page while others (myself being one) like image ads that stick out and say, “hey, look at me!” The only way to find this out is by trying them and testing them out. Using products like Adsense Tracker you can track your Adsense performance a lot better, see what's working for you and whats not working for you. It's not free, but it's value is definitely worth more than it's price. To be successful with Adsense doesn't mean you have to have a site plastered with ads. It means that the ads that you are displaying – people are clicking. Adsense doesn't allow more than 3 ad units per page so you need to find a way to make the ad units that you have on your page as effective as possible. Remember, people who click ads are generally your biggest fans – or the biggest noobs, and every now and then an interested individual. Can you cater to all 3? If so, how? You must catch their eye the first time around – it’s very important. Let me show you the difference between new visitors and returning visitors. The screenshot speaks for itself.

The first time visitors click 86% of the ads on this particular website!! Ask yourself these questions if you already have Adsense on your site 

When I visit my site, what's the first thing that catches my eye?

Where can you place your ads to make SURE, that every visitor at least gets a glimpse of it?

Are my ads dominating my page to the point where it's detrimental to my earnings?

Are my ads relevant?

Are my ads hiding from my readers?

Am I trying to make money, or provide quality content?

Why can't I do both?

Quick Tip: Keep at least one ad at somewhere near the top of the page. Since most people don't stay on websites too long, you want to expose them to at least one ad just in case they decide they don't want to scroll down and read any of your interesting juicy content.

Adsense Pirate – From $8 A Month To $800 A Month Ad Units Explained

Text Ads – I'm going to include this because I think it needs to be included. Depending on what type of site you're running, you either want to have your ads blend in with the page, or stick out from the page. If you're site has a lot of text on it, and you are engaging your readers with quality content, you may want to insert text ads which match the background of your site. A great way to use these text ads is to have the text actually wrap around the ad (exactly like the way this paragraph is set up). This way the user almost has to see the content in your ads. If you're ads are relevant to the text then they probably will get the click you're looking for. Some people like their text ads to stick out of the page like a sore thumb. In my opinion, when I see this I think it looks spammy and avoid them. These ads are great for placing directly into text because users seem to read them and take interest in what they're offering, especially if it's a solution to their problem.

Another simple technique people use is using Link Units (728x15) and having them fit into your Menu as if they are actually part of your menu bar. This way you can get a lot of accidental clicks because the menu bar and the sidebar are 2 places people look when trying to navigate your website. Image Ads – You don't need too many image ads on one page. One or 2 should do at the most in my opinion. These ads are great for attracting attention but make sure the ads that are popping up are relevant to your niche and eye catching. This may not work for everyone but this is a personal tip from me – 300x250 image ads work great when placed high in the sidebar. They are the first things seen in the sidebar so the reader almost always sees them. If the ad is relevant and pays well, you're setting yourself up for a good day. I've also noticed that many users have become blind to 468x60 rectangular ads. I've noticed a decrease in clicks when I run these on my site.

If it ain’t broken, tweak it. We all know Google is one of the best ran companies out there. I was reading a blog post somewhere and this (the title) is exactly how they explained Google. Even though Google is making a ridiculous amount of money and running the internet (in my opinion) they always are tweaking their already great programs. They’re always striving to improve, and to get better. That’s another thing I can’t stress enough. You can always make more money. This chapter is an extension to the placing and design chapter.

Increasing Your CTR CTR stands for Click Through Rate. If 100 people visit your site and 10 of them click advertisements – your CTR would be 10%. Now following a few simple steps you can actually see a boost in your CTR. I’ll list the techniques that I used and hopefully they will help you out. 1. To the right is Google’s Heat Map. This map shows where ads are most likely to be clicked and least likely to be clicked. As you can tell the left is more favorable. 2. Reduce the avenues for exit on your site. You want your visitors to concentrate on two things, your ads and your content. If they leave your site, you want it to be through an ad. 3. Make sure you use channels to track each page or even ad unit individually. You never know what you may find a gem of a keyword in it 4. If you’re getting irrelevant ads be sure to block them by filtering them out within the Adsense panel. 5. Use Google Webmaster Tools and make sure your pages validate. If not the spider may not crawl your page properly and that could affect ad targeting. 6. Match your link ads to blend in with the color/format of the links on your page. To me it only makes sense to do this. 7. As said before – try wrapping your content text ad within the text towards the top of your post and to the left. You’ve probably seen this done on other sites before. That’s because it works.

This way you can serve the user by writing relevant content and placing relevant ads. Satisfy the user – satisfy yourself. Here are 2 more diagrams from Google showing great ideas for placement on blogs. I use a combination of the first one and second one on a few of my blogs.

I’ve had great success in moving the third ad unit from the bottom of the page but rather place it where the search bar is in these 2 diagrams. A 300x250 image ad will do wonders if placed there because the sidebar is one of the main places people look when trying to navigate a blog. If you’re using 1 post a page then you can always experiment. When using one post per page I always place an ad within the content and one towards the top of the sidebar. This has worked well for me.

Boosting Your Profits

A few weeks ago I found myself in a slump on my main money making blog. For a second I thought maybe my niche was drying up but I was mistaken. I was still getting a bunch of clicks per day but I was bringing in pittances. I figured it might be time to sell the site since for the past couple of days earnings have been low, impressions seemed to have dropped, and things just seem to be heading south. I decided to write a new blog post and it happened to be about a finance/stocks application. I checked my Adsense account 1 hour later and profits had raised $20, and I was back in business for that day and profits have yet to drop again on that blog. I’ve seen my Adsense income rise from average $20 a day to $41 a day using the techniques I’ve given you in this eBook. Here are a few tips that should help along the way: Don’t give up – A lot of people would’ve been quick to give up and sell the site/give someone else a goldmine. Stick with your projects, give them time to grow. I’m sure you have heard the saying “Rome was not built in a day” or “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” Pay attention to trends – Paying attention to trends is always very important. I know the days my blogs impressions will be lower, and the days that they will boom. If you know thins like that, you can time your posts to have the maximum exposure that they deserve.

Adsense Pirate – From $8 A Month To $800 A Month Trends outside the internet world also are important because these trends may tip you off on your next niche. Learn from others – There are so many bloggers out there making ridiculous money and sharing all of their secrets. Sometimes it’s not free to learn but a lot of the times the information you’re paying for is worthwhile. Make sure you read and learn from other people’s mistakes and successes. This is an important piece of the puzzle when it comes to making money online. Have patience – Unless you choose a killer niche your earnings aren’t going to come overnight. It may take a little of work and a couple of sites to get things rolling, but don’t give up. “The end justifies the means.” Make mistakes and be original – There once was a time when nobody knew anything. It took originality and many mistakes to get to where we are today. Try something new, I don’t know everything and I spend everyday learning more. This philosophy will help you get further. It takes money to make money – This eBook may have cost you a few dollars, but it might just become worth those dollars and a lot more to you, it might not. The fact is that it has the potential. I bought a domain for 7 dollars using GoDaddy, I thought it was just going to be a fun blog of mine. I actually didn’t know if I was going to make money from it, didn’t care when I first started. Six months later the same blog sold for $6000. How about if I was too cheap to spend $7 on a domain? I would always be thinking that I woulda coulda shoulda have bought it, but I didn’t. Don’t let your penny pinching attitude get in the way of the big picture. No risk – no reward. Adsense is not the only way – Adsense is a great way to make money but don’t get tunnel vision and believe it’s the only way to make money online. There are other programs and advertising companies, and you could always go into marketing your own products or perhaps other peoples. Just remember to think outside the box and take the risk because you don’t know what the future holds for you. I hope you enjoyed this read and I know that you should be able to take some of this knowledge and apply it to your websites and begin earning good money with Adsense. I am going to leave you with a list of resources of places and tools to help you get on with blogging.
