That question is a bit open ended? but to me...

Article posting?

It could mean posting articles to other sites. If this is the case then you use articles to promote stuff. You always make sure you have a link to what you want to promote.

Blog Posting

I am a full time blogger or webmaster. Whatever you like to call it. Blog posting to me is when I publish a new post on my blog. This is important because posting fresh content gets you noticed more and definitely generates more traffic. I would use the articles to promote my blog posts.

Hi guys

About 4 years ago I posted a question on this forum asking "Can you really make money from Adsense?"

Well that thread is still going strong but I thought I would just give you the answer to my own question.

YES

Over the years I have litterally studied how to make money with Adsense which also ended up helping earn me earn money with most programs.

The Key to Making Money with Adsense

When I first started to try and make money with Adsense I sometimes lost enthusiasm because it was just taking so long to succeed.

Great Content

Luckily I tried to produce great content right from the beginning and really did not know any different.

SEO

I realized that great content was GREAT but was not going to help the most people find my site. Yes I got random lucky traffic, but when I discovered SEO, that was a different story. SEO changed my life because not only did Adsense pay more for the right keywords, the search engines gave me more targeted traffic if I optimized correctly.

I have a free PDF report about SEO here. No signup or gimmick, yours to read now.

Targeted Traffic

In the beginning I thought that you just needed heaps of traffic to make more money with Adsense but I was wrong!!!!
Find out what promotions make your Adsense income go up and just repeat that. I have certain websites I ...

I am not really sure about the backlink holding any authority though..It is too easy to get them.. What is does is get your site exposed and out there more which can bring traffic and fame.

mitz

Get solid backlinks like links on old sites, links on .edu sites and so on... You need some cement to hold you there.

Otherwise you will have to work harder to stay there.

Whats wrong with Adsense?

mitz

I would use keyword elite but if you don't have that then I would use Google adwords.

This is the same as Google keyword tool but I'm not sure if it has this feature I'm going to mention.

[B]Google adwords is free to join and it has the keyword tool in it.[/B]

When you use it go to the advanced options when you are putting in your keyword and go to the section where it says filter keywords.
Choose estimated CPC from the drop-down menu and then choose the greater than symbol and then the dollar value.

You can also choose the less than symbol because you might be looking for cheaper keywords. But just remember that cheaper does not always mean sales...but cheaper can be good for traffic though.

Hi guys

I originally posted this thread in 2008 and it is now 2011. Back then I had a website and I still have it today. I have updated on this thread a number of times but after three years experience in trying to make money with AdSense, I actually hit the jackpot.

I have been studying how to make money with AdSense all this time as I realized it would not just happen just by slapping the ads onto a website.

[B]
Here are some of my top tips for earning money with AdSense[/B].

:) Build a website on a topic you love and money will eventually come to you. Do not build a website that is made for Adsense (MFA) as they die out, just like others have mentioned here.

:) You need to be an expert at perseverance and ready to fail over and over again. You have to get on the course every day and not leave your website without life.

:) Website traffic is the be all and end all of everything in the website game. But not just any old traffic will do. This applies to AdSense as well. You must bring in the buying traffic. Otherwise who will want to advertise on your website? quality traffic always wins over quantity, just remember that!

:) You need to do SEO your website and basically control the keywords that people are using to access your website. For example you can research the PPC value of ...

Hi guys
I originally started this post, seems like years ago...LOL

I want to tell you that I am still making money with Google Adsense and now I am going to share what I did...in steps...

[B]The keys to making money with Adsense:[/B]
[LIST]
[]Have a website with focused information.
[
]Get traffic to that website.
[*]Experiment with Adsense ad placement, colours, and sizes.
[/LIST]

[B]

  1. Have a website with focused information[/B]
    Well this is better if you find a niche topic for your website. Not everyone understands this idea of finding a niche.. A lot of people ask me "What is a keyword?"
    If you have a problem understanding niches and keywords then I have a post (includes video) that shows you how to find one. SNIP

If you find a niche to build your website around and do not stray from the subject then the Google Adsense ads will be highly focused. Obviously if you choose an expensive niche, or a niche where people make money, then your earnings per click will be more.

[B]2. Get traffic to that website[/B]
This is the big one...But wait...If you built your website using a highly focused niche and the content is just about this...the ads are going to be temping because they will be very focused too...Therefore more clicks. Do you really need thousands of people coming in or do you need the select few that are focused on your topic and are hungry for that info?

Sure a website ...

mitz

Just make sure to keep the things natural.

That's funny that you should say that...I am acting trying out a bookmarking and linking service that is trying to keep things natural...

Did you mean you must do everything absolutely natural or just seem to be natural like hiring a company to put 3 links out there a day?

mitz

I agree Quibbie, there are people that give you advice and haven't done it themselvses.

And by the way, even though I am making good money, not great, my CTR is very low.

One reason I have found is that traffic from Google is not always quality. They might be coming from google images and they really only want a picture. That's happened alot with me as every page on my website has at least one picture or screenshot with alt text.

If you get real quality traffic from people actually wanting information or coming from forums, Youtube, etc then they are the clickers...

Has anyone else found this?

mitz

So you want to turn up in google search or search on Youtube? I do both, and carefully name my videos..I have uploaded around 150 and have experimented with what works the best... This is what you have to do...Supply and Demand...If you see a title that is popular then keep making similar videos...Go with the flow......

mitz

I posted this thread ages ago and everything is great now...I do earn a good income from adsense but you have to know that my website was not made for adsense...I chose a niche that I liked and thought people needed...not what the price of the ad clicks were... If I do make another website (already have around 20) then I will concentrate on the ad click price...but if you weigh it up...

Can a high paying keyword in a small niche make as much money as a low paying keyword in a top niche?

mitz

Unfortunately I have computer tip websites which narrows the variety of adds that are served to me...
If my sites didn't take up so much time already, I would make a few that would attract a high paying keyword..
Your right!! You can make loads by putting the right affiliate links or banners on your site.
You can also make good money selling your own content in an Ebook, which I am doing. This is the best way to make money as I get 100% of the money.

mitz

I have a great site and it seems valuable to have a link on but it is still almost impossible to get a good link exchange or even a one way link...

I think you have to pay for the good ones.

mitz

Wouldn't that be duplicate content? I am not really sure this is the way to go. That sounds like the easy way out..and it rarely works that easy.

Maybe you should make the pages different. Try a few towns first. Get backlinks to them and see how they go.

mitz

Hi guys
This is what I do ...

  1. Write a title to include the main keyword and four related keywords that would be included when people search. Always make the title in a

    tag.
  2. Mention your most popular keyword in the first paragraph and the last. Mention variations of the keywords at least 20 times in the article.

  3. Make subheadings throughout the article which include keywords. Put then in tags H2,h3,h4...

  4. Always have a meta description and keywords. For the description, mention phrases that might be used in a search, and things you couldn't fit into your title.

  5. I do not go and get backlinks for my individual articles and they all end up PR 3 as my home page is PR4..

  6. Writing an article like this, with great content and information, will ensure you take a quick trip to the top. But you must have the best information to get there.

All this SEO can only help if it is valuable content for the reader. If you just pump out crap then there is no use wasting your time. Trust me I have done both great artilces and crap ones....

I have also gone back a year later and added all these factors into an old article and it does improve the rankings by 100%.

mitz

Yes I do..
I tried affliate links and all that and got rid of them all. I still stick with adsense, but you cannot make serious money with it...Even though it is very very good.

Now I have also turned my content into an E-book and then have added special extras taht you can't get on the site, and then sell that...I can sell endless copies because it is a digital book.

Next I will be putting these e-books on clickbank so other affiliates can sell it for me...

I am also giving away a free version of these books to make thier mouth water...Well not really because they are all about computers.

However this takes time....not only did I have to re-write and add to my content

I had to design ebook covers ( learn photoshop)
organise the layout of the book (Learn Word and PDF's)
***learn what is missing from other ebooks (research)

I really think this will be worth it in the end.

mitz

Same with me guys... I have the same problem with my forum...But I also have a main site with 2000 uniques a day but still can't get the conversation flowing at the forum. I know there is alot of competition for this nieche but I know it will be ok soon.. [url]http://www.pctipforum.com[/url]

mitz

I really do think things have changed... If you do have original and interesting content then Google loves you.... I have been working on one of my sites for over a year and now everything I post ends up in the top ten in the search results within a few days... Indexed very quick...

I have made a new site with about 17 lousey pages and put a few links out there and so on...I was just about to submit it to google when I found out they had already indexed it.... I was shocked because it was always alot harder to get indexed..

mitz

I couldn't decide on a keyword so I went for three.. But one clearly came out on top of the search engines and then I optimized for that... I found it extrememly hard to pin point a keyword and make a decision. But Google and their searchers let me know..

mitz

I love the organic traffic from Google, and I hope it never stops. The more great content you have, and keywords to suit, the more traffic you will get.

If you just keep adding content to your site you will notice the same increase with everything else also.. Even your earnings.

mitz

You can also log into your account and change your settings to always watch high quality videos if they are available...

The problem is that there are not that many videos available in high quality yet..

mitz

You can also look for a contact us link or you can try whois that tells you who owns the domain name.. There is usually an email address there.
Type whois in google..

mitz

The best way is to have a good website that is SEO and has traffic and great content...
That's all you need.. Then put the ads on your site..not splashed everywhere... blended in, looking like part of the design...

Then you can build up your subscribers and send your adsense through rss feed.. etc..

mitz

You can try this...
If you double click on your network connections icon in the tasbar notification area.. Then when on the general tab click on the properties button.. Then click on the wireless networks tab...

Here you can see what networks are registered on your computer. If there are a few.. try deleting all of them, pressing ok .. Exit..then try to connect to the nearest wireless network again.

mitz

Yeah thats right.
I think the way google wants us to do it is very fair. It puts all websites on a level playing field, rich or poor.

I hate it when SEO experts ask you for a link to [url]www.xxx.com[/url] site and want to put your link on a page on another site in the middle of woop woop. (aussie slang)

The funny thing is I offered a link exchange to a website that has a higher page rank than me and they sent me an email saying no... Then they asked if they could buy a link on my site?
I was going to give them a reciprocal link for free, but now they want to buy it.... WHY?

mitz

It took me ages to work this out but the whole SEO of a page counts. The title, the description, content, and the keywords. And you need to have those keywords right! From the most important downwards.. and don't put keywords that do not relate to that page.

This works because I am getting fantastic results with any new content I add to my website.

mitz

My site seems to be fighting back now.. I have been doing everything I can to get back... It is really an amazing thing when you finally understand SEO. My traffic also increased by near 300 uniques a day and soon I will hit the 1500 mark a day!!!
I would never have believed that I could get that much traffic from SEO and content.

The problem is that I still don't know what caused the drop and that worries me. (because I did so many things to fix it...just in case)

mitz

I have noticed that I am getting the same amount of clicks but sometimes I get less money for them.
Then I thought I would steer visits to the expensive pages but then their price dropped.. It is very hard to judge. But my earnings are still increasing every month so adsense is still great as far as I know.
