Buying a domain name for a blog

Usually when your blog starts to become famous or you get some high traffic, the idea of buying a domain name for your blog must have passed through your head ...

You have to know the advantages and disadvantages of this idea before you decide any thing

A Advantages :
1-Buying a Domain name for a blog is the best SEO you can do , yes ... all search engines usually prefer a website on an independent domain .com, .net .org .... rather than any free hosted site
as .blogspot.com, .wordpress.com ....
2-Surely more respected from visitors
3-Higher traffic rank. the reason of this is not so obvious to me but it is so difficult for a blog on free hosting to get among the top 100,000 websites

B Disadvantages :
1-You lose All Back links You Made Before , yes this is the major disadv., you may not lose links as blogger or the host will redirect the old URL to your new domain , BUT Your Page Rank and Search results will retreat and may be unpleasant at first
2-Visitors who bookmarked you at first may not be more able to reach you (Redirection is not always guaranteed )

So the overall Advice is to buy a domain name at first , when you start building your blog
the most favorite domain seller if GoDaddy

Getting Genuine Traffic

What is Genuine traffic?

Genuine Traffic is that the visitors of a certain site or page really wanted to visit that site or page, the source is usually search engines or organic (from bookmark or written in browser URL bar directly), SO this doesn't include traffic exchange and buying traffic or auto surf programs


Advantages of Getting Genuine Traffic :

1- Getting higher Page Rank, Although Page ranking is determined by sites linking to yours, Genuine traffic is also a measure
2- SEO : The percent of your visitors who really wanted your site or found it useful is measured, this is measured through bounce rate and average time on your web page, this is directly related to how search engines rank you and determine who comes first in search results
3- Marketing and earning money : If you get high traffic rank , you would probably get a sponsor . Almost the first 100,000 sites on the web have sponsors


So, How to get Genuine Traffic

1- Genuine content : Always remain the key for alpha one sites , Do not copy and paste.
2- Description : Very important , write as much as possible with less repetition of words , describe your content wisely and write a long description specially if you are a blogger , write the 500 characters all
3- Rich content : Do not summerise , write as much as you like
4- for bloggers your blog is not usually appreciated by visitors unless it contain about 100 posts
5- Subscribe to Blog Directories and submit your blog in the right category
6- Do some SEO

What is Technorati

Technorati is a very useful site

Technorati is the recognized authority on what's happening on the World Live Web, right now. The Live Web is the dynamic and always-updating portion of the Web. We search, surface, and organize blogs and the other forms of independent, user-generated content (photos, videos, voting, etc.) increasingly referred to as “citizen media.”

But it all started with blogs. A blog, or weblog, is a regularly updated journal published on the web. Some blogs are intended for a small audience; others vie for readership with national newspapers. Blogs are influential, personal, or both, and they reflect as many topics and opinions as there are people writing them.

Blogs are powerful because they allow millions of people to easily publish and share their ideas, and millions more to read and respond. They engage the writer and reader in an open conversation, and are shifting the Internet paradigm as we know it.

Technorati is considered a very powerful SEO tool

It have a high Page Rank and hight alexa Rank , so getting indexed in it is very useful for web bloggers

Adsense Alternatives

Lots of people get banned by adsense and others have hight traffic but against TOS because of copyright , so there is always a need for alternatives for adsense , However adsense is almost the best ad network .

Here are some Adsense Alternatives with a hint for each :

1- Clicksor : Excellent alternative with high revenue , but need a high traffic site and other conditions for site , you need to have a remarkable site to be accepted

2- AdBrite : The most famous alternative , with various forms of advertisements , good revenue , but non-english sites are difficult to benefit from it

3- Bidvertiser : Nice but much lower revenue than adbrite and adsense , also non suitable for non-english sites

4- AdEngage : major disadv. is you must wait until some one buys advertisement on your site , so non suitable for low traffic and non-famous sites

5- Yahoo Publisher Network : Excellent alternative but not suitable for non-English sites , For USA only

6- Text-link-ads : Good and you can publish it together with Adsense , but you must wait until some one buys a link in your site

Blogging with Adsense ... The basic step

First of all I would like to enumerate some tips for blogging with Adsense , This would be the main theme of this blog ,

1-GENUINE CONTENT is the clue , you can get high ranks and good search engine results with genuine content . Search engines are the best source of traffic and so the best source of revenue with adsense.

2-Never start a blog just for adsense , write about what you like , blogging or making a site just for Adsense get you bad ranks and search results , it is called MFA site , it is hated by google and visitors , just write about what you love or like to write about and try to be unique .

3-Better to write with Blogger.

4-Imagine that you are a visitor to your blog , what would you like , make it good looking and ask your friends about their opinion.

5-Update your blog and add new posts at least weekly .

6-Concentrate on organising and proper arrangement.

7-After you made a good genuine blog with proper amount of content , submit your blog to high ranked directories and high ranked social bookmarking sites as Digg.com , also to search engines and RSS sites.

8-Creat your blog site map and submit it to google and yahoo.

9-After you have done all this subscribe with Adsense.

10-Don't quit easly ... be patient and most sites and blogs get high traffic by aging , and always remember visitors = revenue.




11-Change your adsense colors and placement from time to time and try to fix to the highest revenue placements , in my opinion I don't think that this is effective but a lot of publishers think so . Don't ask someone to tell you about the best colors or formates , try them by yourself.


Good Luck ,

Reasons of low adsense earnings per click

Lot of adsense users receive large number of clicks with low earning
here are some reasons and how to solve this problem

1-Low paying keywords : is the most common reason, you might build a site about something you love, but you find that your keywords are not paying well...
Solution : really I find building a blog or site about something you like is much more better than building a site for adsense , if still haven't built your site yet try to find high paying keywords here
If you have built your site already, you have not got much to do , try to make other pages on your site with high paying keywords.

2-Low paying ads : now there is a lot of sites that pay very low per click
Solution : Filter these sites using competitive ad filter is adsense setup, there is no such list for these sites , for every site there are certain ads that appear , you should try to filter sites that pay low , usually these sites appear more often , so try start with them to filter , change your filter list and try to notice the change per click

3-Visitors : Adsense higher for clicks from Europe and USA
because they are the internet buyers
Solutions : try to attract USA and European visitors

4-Your site language : ads appear according to language
Solution : best is english

5-Your site : every site has a rank and Google adsense earnings and ads that are displayed on your site depend on its rank
Solution : try to get a high rank and put genuine content , wait...site aging and continuity is a factor.

Low CTR reasons

Why you might have a low click through rate CTR ..

Here are some reasons :

1-Untargeted traffic : is the major reason ..you might get visitors who are not looking for your content, this may be due to bad choice of your keywords.
solution : wise choice of keywords , genuine content , useful content

2-High number of pages : you must know that adsense impressions doesn't depend on unique visitors, it depends on page views.. so you might have 20 pages and have 20 visitors / day so you get impressions of 400 while there is only 20 people visited your site and about 2 clicked your ads
so your CTR will be 0,5 % which you will see as very low
solution : if this is the only reason , don't change it .. high number of pages is good and increase your alexa rank..keep it genuine and keep up the good work

3-Bad presentations : now most websites use adsense ..as a visitor, imagine how boring it will be that most sites have the same shape of advertisements
solution : try unusual forms of adsense as link ads..


4-Bad placing : most sites put ads at header or at the top..it is really good..but better is embedding in the content and link ads under the site link list ..most people recommend the large rectangle , but why don't you go for the button or half banner the are not used a lot and they appear attractive for me
solution : try embedding in your content..and embed small ad formats don't place a large rectangle in small width article .. don't annoy your reader.

5-Having so much adsense in a single page
solution : remove some ads dude..

Tips on Staying out of the Google Sandbox

The “sandbox, ” is a place where Google will often put newly created domains and websites that is like a probation period. Once in the sandbox, the website will not be listed on search engine results pages. In essence, the website will not exist on Google, which means that for all intents and purposes, the website barely exists at all.


1) Build Links the Right Way – Directories, social bookmarking, articles, and press releases are the only things I use on a new site. I never trade links until my website is strong enough to trade with quality, relevant websites. The link building should be steady and even. Submitting to 500 directories the week after a website is launched is an easy ticket into the sandbox, in my opinion. Build them slowly – 30 the first week, 50 each of the next two weeks, 75-100 per week after that. For SB sites, 1 a day is great. There are literally hundreds that are search engine friendly, so get them in there slowly. Include you link in press releases and articles at a good pace, 1-4 per month.

2) Adding Content Regularly – If you have 100 pages, reveal them to Google through internal linking and sitemap additions at a steady pace. Keep track f which pages are being indexed. Avoid duplicate content at all costs. If you have a blog (or if it is a blog), make sure you are posting at least twice a week at a steady pace. No scraping, no RSS feeds for the first few weeks after first getting indexed, and no worthless, keyword stuffed content. Make it good.

3) No Spamming – If you want your site sandboxed, plug it in to blog comments and forum signatures in bulk. Digg every page. Use black hat techniques. You’ll be sandboxed in a couple of weeks. Adding your links through forum signatures is not bad, especially if it’s in a relevant forum that can bring traffic. It should still be avoided in the infancy of a website, at least until the inbound link count is large enough that the sig-links are but a tiny portion.

4) Long Tail Shield – It is my belief that Google believes websites must work their way up a hierarchy. Using anchor text, go after several (dozens, even hundreds) of long-tail keywords. Establish you website there first, then move on to the broader, more competitive ones. If you are starting an automotive classified site with dealers nationwide, the natural tendency is to go after “Used Cars” or a similar keyword. It will take years. First, go after “Used Honda in Dallas” or “Miami Preowned Accord.” Once you do well there, move on to tougher searches like “Used Cars Oklahoma City”. Graduate to “Used Car Search”. You’ll notice one day after a few months (assuming the site is properly optimized) that you pop up #78 on “Used Cars”. That is when it is time to go after the prize.

There is no hard evidence that the sandbox is completely avoidable, no matter what tactics are used. Technically, there is no hard evidence that the sandbox exists.

SEO (Search Engine Optimization) Tips and Tricks

1. On Page Optimization:
• After making a thorough research on the keywords, use the keywords in the metatags, titles and contents of your webpages.
• Try using about 2 keywords in the contents of a single webpage.

2. Off Page Optimization:
• You need to have a high page rank to be placed at a top position in a search engine. Linking to a website having a high page rank will serve this purpose.
• To convince a website of high page rank is the job that requires all your efforts as websites with a high page rank do not always link to websites having lower page rank than theirs.
• So you need to convince them to that extent to trade links or else you can always opt for the easy way to get a high page rank by paying the websites of higher page rank to link to your website. Of course paying to link with high page rank websites is possible only with websites who offer such a feature.
• Another simpler option is buying expired domains that already have a high page rank.

3. Beat your competitor in search engine ranking: Don’t try to beat the search engine. Try to beat your competitor website and try to do at least one thing better than them and continue this till you see some visible changes in the search engine ranks.

4. Popular search terms are better than keywords: Using the most popular and highly sorted out search term is better than using popular keywords.

5. More the number of pages of your website, the better is your page rank.
• Less number of pages with a high density of keywords won’t attract the search engines as much as more number of pages in a website with limited keywords.
• Eg: Wikipedia has millions of pages and so for almost any search term you find it in the top 10 search results. This wasn’t achieved in a day, the pages were added little by little and finally their count grew to millions.
• Rather than cramping everything in a single webpage, distribute it among different webpages.
• A single webpage could have 400-800 words per page.

6. To increase your webpages, you could start writing articles on a regular basis. For this you can write it yourself or heir a Ghostwriter who may charge you around $5 per article or borrow it from an article website and publish it on your website keeping the author’s resource box intact.

7. Your website should have a newsletter feature.
• Subscribers of your newsletter will judge you by the quality of the content that you send them.
• So sit down to write some quality content for your newsletter.
• Even if you have 5-10 people who have signed up for your newsletter, you can get 80% of the sales from them.

8. On subscribing for your newsletter, provide the subscribers with some bonuses to entice them to visit your website again and again.

9. Give away reports on topics related to your website contents to your newsletter subscribers using autoresponders.

10. Submit your articles to E-zines, article directories etc., as these websites have huge traffic and your article thus can experience great exposure and the links back to your website can get huge website traffic too. These links placed here, are of great value to your website and thus placing your article in such websites gets traffic and backlink benefits.

11. Other than submitting articles in E-zines and article directories also try submitting your article to various websites that have contests similar to your article. This article should have links back to your website, so that the traffic experienced by their website could be redirected to yours too in exchange of the articles. The articles written for your website, as well as submitted to different websites should follow certain strategies like:
• Find search terms that are searched at least 100 times per day but not more than 1 million times per day.
• Use these keywords throughout your article with a density of 3-7% per article. You could also use these keywords in the title of your article.
• Spend some time thinking of an attractive title for your article.
• Your article should have a good opening paragraph, so that people would go through your entire article with interest.

12. Make use of article announcement list which is quite similar to article directory where most of the visitors are generally webmasters in search of a quality article to be published on their website.

13. Submit your website in popular directories for increased traffic and backlinks. Submit your website only when it is fully functional to avoid rejection by the directories.

14. Join webmaster’s forum and try becoming a problem solver over there.
• Advice the forum members to find a solution to their problems.
• Ask for their opinions and comments for any of your works.
• If you have a blog of your own, then tell them about it and you could also mention about various posts that would help them find a solution to their problems and from the blog direct them to your website.
• If you direct them directly to your website they will feel as if you are there just to get traffic for your website ad not really there to advice them for solutions.

15. Beware of certain websites that provides codes, which you may be asked to place on your website to get 1000 of links to your website in minutes, but after this you website will certainly get removed from the search engines results. So beware and avoid risks.

16. Classifieds submission to get traffic for your website was once considered a very profitable deal but now due to its overcrowding, it is not so popular to attract traffic, although you do have chances of getting traffic from classified websites too. As its submission is for free might as well give it a try. Always use keywords to write your classified ads.

17. If you are a part of an affiliate network where the websites would like to refer their visitors to each other’s websites, then share posts, articles, newsletters with your website links placed on it, with such websites. You affiliates could use them for their own newsletters and finally, you are trying to help them send visitors to your website.

18. Set up your own blog at blogger.com or wordpress.com to display your website’s articles. Here your content gets maximum reviews and could thus help you improve your website content, making use of these reviews.

19. Once you blog becomes quite popular, submit your blog’s RSS to RSS directory to get more traffic.
• For Bloggers.com, it is “Yourdomain.blogspot.com/atom.xml”
• For wordpress.com, it is “yourdomain.com/feed/”

20. Write press releases.
• Press releases are the notifications that you send to media about noticeable and newsworthy information to get media attention and advertising for free.
• As press releases you can send your website poll information, latest survey information with special reports and mention that this was solely carried out by your website.
• Before writing your press release, go through some of the sample press releases already available on the website, so that you come to know about the format in which a press release has to be presented.
• Avoid presenting it as some advertising copy.

21. Newspaper press releases: When you write a press release, you can also mail the press release to the editor of a newspaper column where you want your press release to appear. The same could be done to printed magazines too.

22. The content of a single webpage should not exceed more than 400-800 words as search engines would not like to go through each and every word of your webpage. Distribute your contents over different webpages if the content is too long to be displayed in a single webpage, this will allow you to target more keywords.

23. If you want your visitors to click a particular link in your website, you could use the terms like “ Not many people know about this link.”

Easy Tips to Maximize Your AdSense Commissions








My Best Google Adsense Tips






Andrew explains google adsense




Adsense tips and tricks mainly for advanced users.

Adsense Maximization Tips

Invite friends to draw a heat map of your site

Invite some friends over coffee and ask them to explore your blog like the navigation bars, categories, search, etc. Sit when them to understand what areas on the site grabs their attention and what remain neglected. Also automatically record their mouse movements in background using a free software called Mouse Map.

Once you collect data from 5-10 people, you will get a better understanding of how visitors interact with your site - the areas that receive maximum focus might be a good place for advertising. [Original Idea by Darren Rowse]

Important: To ensure that your friends do not accidentally click on the Google Ads, replace your ads with static graphics or change the value of google_ad_client.

When Content is Variable, Force CPM Ads

The content of your homepage, archives and category pages will vary almost every day and therefore Google may serve ads which are out of context.

Since non-targeted ads have a poor conversion rate, use only “Image Ads” on these page that can are generally CPM in nature and are in available in Image, Flash and Video formats. You may not be making revenue from clicks but the impressions will slowly add up. [Original Idea by Jennifer Slegg]

Remove Adsense from Poorly Performing Pages

Use channels to track the effective earnings from Adsense on your webpage and remove the Adsense code from pages that aren’t performing well.

Similarly, if you own ten different websites, remove Adsense code from sites that aren’t bringing in any revenue. Google uses a concept called Smart Pricing that applies to all sites owned by an Adsense Publisher.

Niche Sites
Targeted niche sites that have a clear theme, tend to generate more advertising revenue simply because it is easier for these sites to achieve decent search engine placement. Be warned though, you want to choose a niche where there is a sufficient number of advertisements available.

Target Keywords
When determining the site's focus, consider how much advertisers pay for the advertisements. If the site is focused on ringtones, like Ringtone Central http://www.ringtones-central.com the payout per-click is going to be very small because ringtones are not high ticket items and advertisers will not spend a lot on pay-per-click advertisements. With less obvious markets use Overture to determine how much advertisers pay-per-keyword. It is usually similar on Google. Search Overture for a keyword then click "View Advertisers' Max Bids" in the top right corner. This will show the Overture inventory and how much is paid per keyword. Because the market has become very competitive, it is difficult to rank well in search engines with a new website that is optimized for the terms that have the highest payout. Consider targeting terms that are moderately priced.

Aged Sites / Time
Over time as a website is spidered by Google, advertisements will generally increase in relevance. In general, older websites will rank better in search engines. The closer the advertisements relate to the webpage's content; the higher the "click-through" the publishers will see.


Optimize each page for adsense

Research competitive keywords using a keyword research tool such as Overture's keyword suggestion tool at http://inventory.overture.com/d/searchinventory/suggestion/ or grab a list of the most popular keywords from various sources and use them in your web site pages where relevant. There is a great article at - http://searchenginewatch.com/facts/article.php/2156041 - which is a great way to find frequently searched keywords. By using these popular keywords, you're opening the door for Google to place higher paying ads on your website. The more popular the keyword or phrase, the higher AdWords advertisers are generally willing to pay per click. This results in much higher rates of commission for you on each of those clicks.

Use Google's Custom Channels for each of the ad units on your site

Google has provided web site publishers with some great tools to help you analyze and tweak your adsense ads. Give each unit a unique name and then analyze the results and keep tweaking them until you get the desired results from them. If they are not working were they are placed, move them. Try changing the colors and integrating them differently into the text and keep detailed notes on the changes you are making and see which one's make the biggest change to your CTR (Click Through Rate).

Blend you Adsense ads into your web pages

This next tip is one of the simplest changes I made but had a huge effect on my earnings. Make links the same color as your existing text links. Don't try and make the ads stand out on the page by using bright colors as all this achieves is making a big warning sign that these are ads and the majority of people will then not click on the links. By making the links the same color as your links, it looks like they are an extension of your page. If you use the tip above and optimize each page for specific keywords then the ads served on the page will be related to the information on the page and you'll see your CTR shoot up.


And finally, a tip that I advise for all aspects of website marketing, not just for adsense purposes is, learn from the masters. There are plenty of people making thousands of dollars in adsence earnings every month and have gone through all the trial and error iterations that need to be done to find the most successful way to maximize your adsense earnings. My advice, invest in their courses. They pay for themselves in a very short period of time.

Adsense vs Adbrite

1. Adsense does not accept Casino, adult and Viagra sites. Adbrite does.

2. If you have a site which is high traffic like Humour where adsense your earnings is low, with adbrite your earnings will be great. Good examples: Big-Boys.com with Over 490,000 Unique visitors and FriendSter.com with Over 620,000, Unique visitors. Those two sites are a low earning with Adsense (proved) but with adbrite their earnings are thousands of dollars per month (may be per day!)

3. Customer care, I will not say that Google Adsense does not have a good customer care, but adbrite is Great! Pud, I will congratulate you about this great support team.

4. With Google adsense you can not sell Ad space in your site, but with Adbrite you can create your own Price and Packages. Also adbrite provide you with Network ads (as Google adsense).

5. Google adsense pay monthly, Adbrite pay 60-days.

6. With Google adsense you can not play with your code, with adbrite, you can add any style that you want. Play with it!

7. You can put Adsense and Adbrite code both, Without any problem.

8. A Small note: Adbrite works great in forums ;)

9. With adbrite the seller has a great advantage showing what the site provides. As unique visitors, Page views, Origin of traffic, Avg cost per click (eCPC), Site Category, Alexa rank, Repurchase rate, Conversion Score, AdBrite since, What CPC can I expect?, Ad zone description, and much more.

Adsense vs bidvertiser

Pros for Using BidVertiser
1. BidVertiser pays via Paypal. AdSense pays via check. Paypal deposit is quicker to get than a check.

2. The minimum payout from BidVertiser is $10. AdSense has a minimum payout of $100, which takes more time to reach. Many beginning advertisers give up on the early stages of using AdSense and never realize any of the profits for their labor.

3. You can choose to have links opened in a separate window. This allows users to stay on your website and hopefully click on other ads on the website.

4. You can manually approve ads. You don't have this control with AdSense.

5. When creating your ads, you can see a template for what the ad will look like before you put it on your site. For AdSense, you have to click on a separate link, for example, to see what a 234x60 ad looks like. This is excellent for beginners, but also for experienced users because the default selection on AdSense is 728x90 "Leaderboard", which many times is not what you want.

6. You can choose to display eBay auction ads (by default) or not. AdSense does not allow you this freedom.

7. Finally, a very good thing, you can see how much money the advertisers are bidding for the ads that will show on your website. You can't see that information from AdSense; you have to use some other system, like AdWords, to get an idea how profitable your ads can be for your niche.

Cons for Using BidVertiser
1. Some people experience slow page loads with BidVertiser compared to AdSense. This is a problem, because users don't like slow sites. They will go to the next one if yours is too slow.

2. Ads are not as relevant as the ones from AdSense. For example, I have a blog about chronic pain, and some of the ads I saw on my site were about dieting. Of course, I can manually block those ads that are not relevant. But the problem is that there were a lot of ads that were not relevant. There is no such problem with AdSense because you have more advertisers using AdSense than any other ad system.

3. AdSense pays more per click. This is not always true; it depends on the keywords that you use. But like I said on the previous point, there are more advertisers competing for AdSense ads, and competition in this case is good.

4. AdSense has a better reputation. Some people complain that BidVertiser did not pay them when the minimum payment reached the $10. Some people say that BidVertiser does pay. You have to experiment on your own to find out.

AdSense Optimisation: Creating Channels


The AdSense URL channel setup window.


One of the brilliant things about AdSense is that you can paste your HTML and implement ads on any web page you have control over. Google only vet the primary URL you submit with your AdSense application - where you paste your code after that is up to you. A problem arises that if you have several sites, each with several pages and several AdSense elements you can't easily keep track on which ads are performing and which aren't. You will want to focus your attention on under performing AdSense elements, instead of messing about with those that have a good click-through-rate, but how do you know which ads need fine tuning? By the use of channels is the answer. AdSense allows publishers to monitor their ads using two types of channel - 'URL channels' to see how particular sites are performing and 'Custom channels' to see how a particular type of ad is performing.

URL channels can be used to track ad performance across an entire domain or sub domain. Suppose you had a website which incorporated a forum, guestbook and blog and you wanted to know which of these pages got the most clicks - you can easily achieve this by setting up channels for each of these URLs. URL channels can be used to monitor AdSense for content (traditional ad and link units), AdSense for search (Google search boxes) and Referral buttons.

URL channels are easily implemented as follows:
  • Log into your AdSense account.
  • Click on the AdSense Setup tab.
  • Click on the Channels link.
  • Select either the AdSense for content, AdSense for search or Referrals tab in the panel that appears.
  • Click Add new URL channel.
  • Type the web address for the channel in the box that appears (omit the 'www').
  • Click Create new channel.
You are able to create a maximum of 200 different URL and custom channels combined. Display your individual channel reports by logging into your account, clicking the Reports tab and then clicking the Advanced Reports link.

Backlinking

Leaving comments on websites and blogs is the ideal way of getting those all important inbound links. If you aim for sites of a similar theme and higher PageRank you've got it sorted. I am not advocating spamming - spam is the scourge of webmasters worldwide and you're likely to get spammed a hundred-fold in return. You must always read the article you are responding to, form a quick and reasoned opinion and then write something of relevance. If it is the first time you have commented on a particular site it is worthwhile reading the comment guidelines beforehand.

I have a tried and tested strategy for leaving comments. It works - I have been able to obtain inbound links from PR6, 7 and 8 webpages relatively easily. Most blog comment links are 'no follow' meaning, in theory, that they can't pass PageRank to the destination page. In practice these are still a potential source of traffic and have value for search engines apart from Google. I have thought long and hard about whether to share this strategy with my readers, because some of you might notice that I have tried this on your site! Below I outline the key points of my strategy:

  • Aim for websites that are relevant and have a higher PR than your own.
  • Only choose those that allow comment writers to leave their link (sounds obvious). Quite often the comment field will ask for your name, email address and web address. In the published comment your name usually appears as the anchor text - you may like to leave a different name which is more favourable anchor text (I'd recommend you do, but nothing that sounds too spammy).
  • If the comment guidelines allow it you can append your link after your comment as well.
  • Only aim for websites that display comments on the same webpage (at the same URL) as the article. Do not leave comments on sites that display comments in pop-ups.
  • Check the PR of the actual article you are commenting on. Quite often the homepage of a site will have a high PR, but the page with the article (and comments) will have a lower PR. Don't make the mistake of thinking PR8 site means PR8 articles - it isn't true.
  • Here's an example of what I mean in the above point: An article called 'Comment for Backlinks' appears on the front page of a PR8 blog at the URL randomsite.com/index.html. When a new article is published the URL of 'Comment for Backlinks' becomes something similar to randomsite.com/2007/01/01/comment-for-backlinks.html and it is a PR0 page
  • For the reason above always look through the archive to find an article to comment on. Go well back in time so that the article has been well crawled by the Googlebot, has lots of incoming links itself and has an updated PR.
  • Aim for articles that have relevant keywords in the URL.
  • Avoid trawling for multiple articles on the same website. Ideally you need to use this strategy on several sites at the same time. Keep an eye open for new sites with a similar content to your own.
Remember that if you have a PR0 site it doesn't take too many PR6 or PR7 inbound links to give you a good advantage in the next PageRank update. I hope you can use this strategy to gain some quality inbound links and if you've found it useful please link to us and spread the word!

Google Gadget Ads

Last week Google introduced a brand new ad format to their AdSense collection - the Google Gadget Ad. It differs from existing formats in that it's interactive, allowing the person viewing it to play a small game, perform a search or similar. The idea is that they'll provide better value to AdWords advertisers and benefit AdSense publishers by keeping visitors at their site for longer.



Thankfully gadget ads are governed by the same high editorial standards as standard ad units, so there'll be no irritating smilies saying "hello" and tapping on the inside of your screen. I hate those!

If you're ready to start displaying gadget ads on your website you can increase the chances that they'll be shown by making sure you're opted in to image ads and using one of the image ad formats. Please note that the most popular sizes for gadget ads are the rectangle, leaderboard, and skyscraper formats.

Google AdSense Account Blocked What Should You Do?

Once you have decided to take your marketing campaign to Google's AdSense pay per click program, you agree to a number of rules including:

- No hidden pages. You must have a clear hierarchy and each page needs at least one link to get there.
- No broken links. If you link outside of your site, make sure you check your links often. No more than 100 links per page.
- When designing your site, create one that is helpful to a user; don't design a page for search engines. Make sure you clearly define what your site is about.
- Your TITLE and ALT tags should be precise and descriptive.
- You need a site map to help users find what they are looking for if your menu doesn't.
- No hidden text.
- No redirection of your site

Even if you follow all these design rules, you may still be at risk of losing your AdSense advertiser account or have temporarily been fined a penalty in the form of your ads being removed from rotation on other sites. The penalty may go away with time, but it's best to double and triple check your site then file a re-inclusion request (instructions below.) Include in your request which changes you've made and that it won't happen again.

Your competitors might have a plan that could get you banned. It's called "click bombing" and it's against Google's policy.

Click bombing happens when someone, be it a competitor or not, repeatedly clicks the pay per click ad for a business in order to raise flags with Google. Google rates their ads based on relevance, so the more an ad is clicked, the more relevant it becomes, and the higher up the list it moves. This has made it very easy for business owners to move themselves up the relevance list, so Google countered this practice by red flagging any business that has a significant spike in AdSense hits. If the hits all trace back to the same IP address or addresses, the advertiser is removed for "invalid clicks".

Finding out about this strength in Google's search engine, sneaky competitors have started to exploit it by purposely clicking the competitions ad again and again, in order to ban the ad.

If this has happened to you, or if you've been banned for violation of any of the design or technological terms of your contract, you can sometimes have it overturned by contacting customer support. You can contact Google support by visiting http://www.google.com/support/bin/request.py. Make sure you type "Re-inclusion Request" in the subject of the email. Keep your request simple, short and to the point. No need to threaten Google that you'll stop advertising with them or list how long you've been a customer.

It is imperative, though, that you run reports frequently and store the data outside of your Google account. This will help prove to Google that a click bombing happened should you be removed. You are not guaranteed a reversal, however. In fact, most pleas to Google to have a banned account go unheard.

If you don't get a positive response from Google, you may want to check out some of the other pay per click programs, like Yahoo! Publisher Network or the many affiliate programs online.

1: Markus Frind: PlentyOfFish.com - $300,000 per month

Markus Frind is a local Vancouverite who is turning the online dating world upside down. His site, Plentyoffish.com is the biggest free dating site on the Internet. Plentyoffish.com receives up to 500 million page views per month and make over $10,000 per day for Markus, who runs the site from home.

You think a site this big would be staffed by a hundred people but the only employee that Markus has is his girlfriend, who helps to answer the emails. Markus coded Plenty of Fish all by himself. The site is lean and mean and requires only four servers to handle all that traffic.

Doubts about Makus’s Google earnings were silenced when he posted this $900,000 check from Google. According to Markus’s blog entry, the check represented two months of AdSense earnings.

2: Kevin Rose: Digg.com - $250,000 per month

Kevin Rose started Digg in December of 2004 with just $1000. Today Digg is one of the biggest news sites on the Net, with over 400,000 members and over 200 million page views per month. According to this article from Business week, Digg will make $3 million this year from a combination of Google AdSense and Federated Media ads. Unfortunately, only Mr. Rose and his accountants knows how much came from Google and how much came from Federated Media. I can try to take a guess based on the number of times I have seen a Federated Media ad vs. a Google ad on Digg but, being in Canada, it’s almost 100% Google ads.

Whatever Google’s share of Digg’s $250,000 per month in ad revenues may be, one thing is for sure, it is not small.

3: Jeremy Schoemaker - $140,000 per month

adsensecheck1.jpg

If ever anyone can be considered an Internet marketing superstar, ShoeMoney would be near the top of the list. Jeremy Schoemaker is a search engine marketer who knows how to take advantage of both Google AdSense and AdWords. In the above photo, you see him with the biggest Google AdSense check he has ever received from Google. The income was earned back in the month of August 2005. Since then Mr. Schoemaker has moved to wire transfers. No doubt, he got tired to dealing with the bank tellers when trying to deposit $100K plus checks every month.

Unlike the other Google whores on this list, ShoeMoney, as he likes to be call, does not own just one site. He makes his enormous Google checks using hundreds of sites and thousands of domains.

4: Jason Calacanis: Weblogs, Inc. - $120,000 per month

Before Jason Calacanis sold Weblogs, Inc to AOL for $25 million, he got the network of blogs making over $4,000 a day from Google AdSense. So impressive was his AdSense performance that Google used Weblogs for a case study.

Now that AOL controls Weblogs, you can bet it is making a lot more than a measly $120,000 a month.

5: David Miles Jr. & Kato Leonard - $100,000 per month

According to this Washington Post article, David Miles Jr. and Kato Leonard, claims they make $100,000 a month from their site, Freeweblayouts.net, which gives away designs that people can use on MySpace.

The only problem with the revenue figure is it is not 100% AdSense. Free Web Layouts use other advertising networks in addition to Google. However, with a claimed $100,000 per month in revenues, I am fairly confident that the AdSense portion is higher than our next Google whore.

6: Tim Carter: AskTheBuilder.com - $30,000 per month

Tim Carter is a licensed master plumber and carpenter with his own radio show. He also makes frequent television appearances. He founded AsktheBuilder.com in 1995, The primary focus has been catering to an avid following of fellow builders on the site. According to the Google case study, Mr. Carter did such a good job tweaking the Google ads on his site that it now makes $30,000 a month.

Tim’s AdSense revenues now average $1400 a day and growing. Overall, Carter is enthusiastic about AdSense: it allows him to focus on content development, and gives him built-in tools to measure ad performance and make changes to maximize revenues. “People come to me for help,” says Carter. “They get what they need from my columns and advice - and also from ads delivered by AdSense.”

7: Joel Comm - $24,000 per month

Joel Comm is get rich quick guru. He wrote the best selling e-book, What Google Never Told You About Making Money with AdSense. The e-book, along with the website that promotes it has a screen shot of Mr. Comm AdSense earning from November 19, 2005 to December 15, 2005. Whether or not Mr. Comm still makes this much from Google is anybody’s guess.

8: Shawn Hogan – DigitalPoint.com $10,000 per month

Back in January of 2005 the New York Times had an article about AdSense, featuring Shawn Hogan, founder of DigitalPoint. The article states that Mr. Hogan makes $10,000 per month from Google AdSense using a very unique revenue sharing model.

Google pays Digital Point about $10,000 a month, depending on how many people view or click on those ads, said Shawn D. Hogan, the owner and chief technology officer of Digital Point.

Mr. Hogan said he started the revenue-sharing approach in 2004 “as kind of a marketing gimmick.”

“But everyone seemed to think it was a cool idea,” he said. “I saw a lot of other sites doing the same thing maybe six months later.”

DigitalPoint have grown a lot since that article and while Mr. Hogun would not say anything, the DigitalPoint forum members speculate that he is making at least twice that amount now.

Copyrighted Material

Website publishers may not display Google ads on web pages with content protected by copyright law unless they have the necessary legal rights to display that content. Please see our DMCA policy for more information.

Webmaster Guidelines

AdSense publishers are required to adhere to the webmaster quality guidelines posted at http://www.google.com/webmasters/guidelines.html.

Site and Ad Behavior

Sites showing Google ads should be easy for users to navigate and should not contain excessive pop-ups. AdSense code may not be altered, nor may standard ad behavior be manipulated in any way that is not explicitly permitted by Google.

  • Sites showing Google ads may not contain pop-ups or pop-unders that interfere with site navigation, change user preferences, or initiate downloads.
  • Any AdSense code must be pasted directly into webpages without modification. AdSense participants are not allowed to alter any portion of the code or change the behavior, targeting, or delivery of ads. For instance, clicks on Google ads may not result in a new browser window being launched.
  • A site or third party cannot display our ads, search box, search results, or referral buttons as a result of the actions of any software application such as a toolbar.
  • No AdSense code may be integrated into a software application.
  • Webpages containing AdSense code may not be loaded by any software that can trigger pop-ups, redirect users to unwanted websites, modify browser settings, or otherwise interfere with site navigation. It is your responsibility to ensure that no ad network or affiliate uses such methods to direct traffic to pages that contain your AdSense code.
  • Referral offerings must be made without any obligation or requirement to end users. Publishers may not solicit email addresses from users in conjunction with AdSense referral units.
  • Publishers using online advertising to drive traffic to pages showing Google ads must comply with the spirit of Google's Landing Page Quality Guidelines. For instance, if you advertise for sites participating in the AdSense program, the advertising should not be deceptive to users.
Ad Placement

AdSense offers a number of ad formats and advertising products. Publishers are encouraged to experiment with a variety of placements, provided the following policies are respected:

  • Up to three ad units may be displayed on each page.
  • A maximum of two Google AdSense for search boxes may be placed on a page.
  • Up to three link units may also be placed on each page.
  • Up to three referral units may be displayed on a page, in addition to the ad units, search boxes, and link units specified above.
  • AdSense for search results pages may show only a single ad link unit in addition to the ads Google serves with the search results. No other ads may be displayed on your search results page.
  • No Google ad or Google search box may be displayed in a pop-up, pop-under, or in an email.
  • Elements on a page must not obscure any portion of the ads.
  • No Google ad may be placed on any non-content-based pages.
  • No Google ad may be placed on pages published specifically for the purpose of showing ads, whether or not the page content is relevant.
Competitive Ads and Services

In order to prevent user confusion, we do not permit Google ads or search boxes to be published on websites that also contain other ads or services formatted to use the same layout and colors as the Google ads or search boxes on that site. Although you may sell ads directly on your site, it is your responsibility to ensure these ads cannot be confused with Google ads.

Product-Specific Policies

Some AdSense products have additional policies that apply specifically to their use. Please review them in full if you use the products listed below.
