Google AdSense Rewards Content with Advertising Revenue

If you've been looking for an easy way to increase your website's revenue, Google AdSense may be your answer.

Google AdSense is a phenomenal new advertising revenue program that is taking the Internet by storm. It was specifically designed to enable content rich sites to increase their advertising revenue simply by displaying Google AdWords ads.

Google AdSense makes selling advertising space easy, as they handle everything for you. With access to a database of 100,000 advertisers, you'll never have to worry about finding advertisers for your website again.

The concept is simple. If you have a quality site that provides content, such as articles, you may qualify to display Google AdWords text ads on your web pages. If your site is approved, you will receive a portion of the pay-per- click payment.

The great thing about Google's sophisticated advertising system is that the ads that display on your web pages are relevant to your content. They scan each page to determine what your page is about and display the ads accordingly. This will increase your click-through rate considerably, as relevant text ads combined with quality content are highly effective.

Although the AdSense program is free to apply, your site will be reviewed and must be approved in order to begin displaying the ads.

As there have been many sites turned down, you'll need to ensure your site meets Google's criteria prior to applying. You can find the guidelines at the following web address: https://www.google.com/adsense/policies

They're basically looking for quality sites offering content. The keywords here are "quality and content." If your site is under construction, loaded with advertising and/or broken images and links, don't even waste your time applying, as you won't be accepted. However, if you have a quality site and provide your visitors with content, you will most-likely be accepted.

The more content pages you have, the more advertising revenue you can make. It's really that simple. If you don't have your own content, there is a wealth of content available on Internet completely free. Subscribe to any of the following article announcement groups to receive new article submissions each day:
Article Announce - All types of articles

AABusiness - Business oriented articles, including: Business, Ecommerce, Sales, Networking, Business Communication, Internet Marketing, Promotion, etc.

AAInternet - Internet oriented articles, including: Ebooks, Ezines, Search Engines, Web Design, Web Development, Web Sites, etc.

AAHome - Home and Family oriented articles, including: Parenting, Relationships, Cooking, Recipes, Crafts, Gardening, Home, etc.

AAHealth - Health and Fitness oriented articles, including both physical and emotional health.

AAGeneral - General Interest oriented articles.
With your subscription to any of the above groups, you'll not only receive new article submissions delivered to your email, but you'll also have access to the archives which contain thousands of quality articles.

Visit the following web address for further information:

Once you've located articles that are relevant to your website, simply create a page for each. For example, if you find ten appropriate articles, you can create ten new content pages in which you can display Google AdWords ads. Not only will you be adding valuable content for your visitors, but you'll also increase your website's traffic and revenue. It's a win-win deal no matter how you look at it.

Once your site has been approved, you simply select the style of ads you'd like to display and paste the code into your web pages where you'd like the ads to display.

Although all of the ads are text ads, there are currently four layout options to select from:
  • Standard 468 x 60 banner format (displays up to 2 ads)

  • Vertical 120 x 600 skyscraper ad (displays up to 4 ads)

  • Horizontal 728 x 90 Leaderboard (displays up to 4 ads)

  • 300 x 250 Inline rectangle (displays up to 4 ads)
Although all four ad styles can be effective, the "skyscraper" ads placed toward the top right side of your page or the "Leaderboard" ads placed at the top of the page generally will provide a higher click-through rate than the other two styles.

However, each page is different and will produce different results. For this reason, you may want to test your pages and display the style that produces the highest click- through rate.

Once you begin displaying the ads on your website, you can visit Google and log in to your account to see how the ads are performing. You can view the number of impressions, clicks, click-through rate and your earnings.

If you're concerned about displaying ads that may compete with products or services you're promoting, Google offers an option to filter out unwanted ads. In addition, you can display the ads along with any affiliate programs you may be promoting, as long as the ads don't look like Google ads.

Google AdSense is the hottest advertising revenue program on the Internet. Isn't it about time you got paid for your content?

A Two Minute Copywriting Guide

Pay attention! This advice is very concise. Read too fast, and you'll miss it! And it applies to any copywriting, web page, email, printed sales letter, newspaper ad:
  • Get people's attention with a headline, a powerful statement which makes them want to read the rest of your copy.

  • Don't start by trying to sell your product. Start by stating the problems that the reader faces. Describe them in detail, so that they can relate to them.

  • Move on to some of the solutions that other products offer. Show that they don't really solve the problem.

  • Now show how your product can solve their problem.

  • End with a clear call to action. Lead them by the hand. What do they need to do next? Fill in a form? Pick up the phone? Click on the 'buy' button? You're in charge - tell them what to do!

Google Search Term Tip

Here's a litle beauty of a tip that will be your most treasured friend forever.

Whenever you're unsure, uncertain or even totally in the dark about a word or term just do this ...

Let's say you came across the word - newbie - in an article and you haven't a clue what it means.

Open your browser and go to http://google.com Type into the search box... define newbie and up comes around 280,000 results

I liked this one ... "Newbie: A person new to online systems who is thus unlikely to be familiar with the norms, conventions and general netiquette of CMC"


Anyway, the point of this little tip is that you just type the word "define" before a word and Voila, as they say in France.
