Google Adsense – Ad Placement to Profit
April 9, 2007
Google Adsense is one of the most popular targeted advertising systems. (If you don’t know what Adsense is, click here) So if it’s popular, you wonder… Why aren’t you making a fortune from it?
Money comes in time. Nobody can become rich in a few days. Sometimes it takes you weeks or even months to make your first dollar with Adsense. It depends on the person, their determination, their knowledge with the program and the internet, how they advertise their website, and other factors.
But maybe Adsense isn’t making you any money because you don’t know how to place the advertisements. The key is to place them in a part of your blog where the main focus is, and to make them blend in. Also, avoid the common ad formats – like leaderboard, the long one, for instance (you see that one everywhere). Instead, try using the squares and rectangles and unique shapes for ads.
Place your ads where your visitors will be looking, or where they will be likely to click. Make your ad colors to match your site. For example, if the links in your blog are all blue, you might want to make your ad links blue. You’ll want it to have the same background color. Ads standing out aren’t good – your visitors will avoid them at all costs!
If you want to make money with Adsense, you have to be a hard worker. Try all kinds of color combinations, ad formats, and placement on your blog, until you get it right where you’re earning the most. And be sure not to neglect writing new content all the time and submitting your blog to directories and search engines! I can’t promise you’ll be a six figure blogger, but if you have perseverance, you’ll succeed.
