5 Tips To Improve Your Adsense Earnings

If bloggers want to monetize their blogs, one the great way to do it is through Google Adsense. There are lots of bloggers struggling hard to increase the AdSense earnings they get through their blogs. But then some of the “geniuses” of them are enjoying hundreds of dollars a day from AdSense ads on their websites. What makes these bloggers different from the other kind is that they do things differently and they think out of the box.

The ones who have been there and done it have quite some useful tips to help those who would want to venture into this field. Some of these tips have boosted quite a lot of AdSense earnings in the past and is continuously doing so. They will help you also to improve your AdSense earnings.

Here are some 5 proven ways on how best to improve your Adsense earnings.

1. Concentrating on one format of Adsense ad.

The one format that worked well for the majority is the Large Rectangle (7Z8x90, 336X280 or the new 160×300). This same format has the tendency to result in higher CTR, or the click-through rates. Why choose this format out of the many you can use? Basically, because the ads will look like normal web links, and people, being used to clicking on them, click these types of links. They may or may not know they are clicking on your Adsense but as long as there are clicks, then it will all be for your advantage. You can also use the new Google AdSense large banners.

2. Create a custom palette for your ads.

Choose a color that will go well with the background of your site. If your site has a white background, try to use white as the color of your ad border and background. The idea to patterning the colors is to make the AdSense look like it is part of the web pages. Again, This will result in more clicks from people visiting your site. However, be careful not to make your ads to fully blend with your blog’s color.

3. Put AdSense ONLY on top of your blog’s pages.

Do not try to hide your AdSense. Put them in a place where people can see them quickly. You will be amazed how the difference between AdSense locations can make when you see your earnings.

4. Maintain adverts to relevant websites.

If there is already lots of adverts on your site, put your Google Adsense on top of all of them. That way visitor will see your ads first before other adverts. And also, make sure AdSense serves only relevant ads to your website. There is a way you can configure your AdSense account to show only ads that match your blog’s content.

5. Use the new AdSense Asynchronous Code

The new AdSense Asynchronous Code offers improved web latency and better user experience for your site’s visitors. The advantage of this new code is that it is guaranteed never to get in the way of other parts of your web loading. This means that visitors will be able to load the content of your pages even if the ads are not loading.

These are some of the tips that have worked well for some who want to generate hundreds and even thousands of AdSense earnings from their websites. It is important to know though that ads are displayed because it fits the interest of the people viewing them. So focusing on a specific topic should be your primary purpose because the displays will be especially targeted on a topic that persons will be viewing already.

If others have done it and had success with the above tips, there is nothing wrong trying it out for yourself.

    Another great post from the boss himself. AdSense is the backbone of almost 50% of bloggers on the blogoshere. Take away AdSense and you just break their spinal cord. This will really help AdSense publishers to earn more cash from their AdSense accounts.

    You are also right, the large rectangle AdSense format has really changed the AdSense account status of some from thin to fat. Also placement is vital. You can’t put AdSense at the bottom of your weblog and expect good conversion. Put it where your visitor will see it, THE FIRST THING on your blog. Since it doesn’t tamper with your site load speed. I don’t see any harm in implementing this. You will see changes in your earnings.

    Thank you for this post.

    This a good writeup. But I’m depicting this as a post directed to bloggers who have successfully been approved by Google for the usage of the AdSense. I’ll like to ask few questions in line with Google AdSense implementation, which are:

    1. What are the prerequisites a blogger must meet in order to get the approval for the product on his/her blog? Because, I have once applied for the product on my blog but I was disapproved.

    2. What are the “types” or “formats” of AdSense? Because I can read a “rectangular AdSense” format from one of the points you explained.

    Boss, please it will be of immense benefit to Bloggers like myself who is/are having challenges in getting into the realm of implementing AdSense on their blog if you can provide us a post that SPECIFICALLY teaches the AdSense from scratch.

    God bless you Boss.

      Hi Michael,

      Yes, this post is directed to those who have been approved by AdSense. To answer your questions;

      1. I can’t really say. Google AdSense has the sole right to approve or disapprove applications from bloggers. But, to find answer to this, you will need to read Google’s AdSense policy for publishers. You can find this on Google AdSense.

      2. The best performing AdSense format are leaderboards with sizes 728×90, 300×250 and 300×600. Also, the bigger sizes like 970×90 also performs well. Whichever one you choose, the position also matters – on header and within post. Also, the formats needs to be responsive (adapt to any screen size)

    Hi Adesoji,

    This is one of the biggest problem many AdSense publisher encounters. Getting AdSense approval is not an easy task and earning handsomely from AdSense is like a nightmare. I have read so many blogs on how to increase AdSense where some of the people claimed to have earn huge amount of money from AdSense which I don’t seems to believe, although I’m as well as AdSense publisher but it takes time to earn big bulk from AdSense. Moreso, one funny thing I discovered about my AdSense RPM is that, whenever I change my Ads type, my RPM goes very low and until I changed it again to the same format I removed not minding to try any other placement though but making myself familiar with one Ad type, and trying to see whether with time, the RPM might change. As for now, I’m currently using responsive Ad size on almost all my Ads spot with a very low RPM but don’t care for now (Losing cash you said), yes I know but it worth experimenting.

    You have stated the means which has been the only one to convinced me about increasing AdSense earning, and as a matter of fact, I’m going to change one Ad spot to the new AdSense format and see what will happen.
