5 Ways To Improve Your Earnings 

With Adsense

If webmasters want to monetize their websites, the great way to do it is through Adsense. There are lots of webmasters struggling hard to earn some good money a day through their sites. But then some of the “geniuses” of them are enjoying hundreds of dollars a day from Adsense ads on their websites. What makes these webmasters different from the other kind is that they are different 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 earnings in the past and is continuously doing so.

Here are some 5 proven ways on how best to improve your earnings.
1. Concentrating on one format of Adsense ad. The one format that worked well for the majority is the Large Rectangle (336X280). This same format have 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.

2. Remove the Adsense from the bottom pages of your site and put them at the top. Do not try to hide your Adsense. Put them in the place where people can see them quickly. You will be amazed how the difference between Adsense locations can make when you see your earnings.

3. 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 to more clicks from people visiting your site.

4. Try to automate the insertion of your Adsense code into the webpages using SSI (or server side included). Ask your web administrator if your server supports SSI or not. How do you do it? Just save your Adsense code in a text file, save it as “adsense text”, and upload it to the root directory of the web server. Then using SSI, call the code on other pages. This tip is a time saver especially for those who are using automatic page generators to generate pages on their website.

5. Maintain links to relevant websites. If you think some sites are better off than the others, put your ads there and try to maintaining and managing them. If there is already lots of Adsense put into that certain site, put yours on top of all of them. That way visitor will see your ads first upon browsing into that site.

These are some of the tips that have worked well for some who want to generate hundreds and even thousands on 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.

Note also that there are many other Adsense sharing the same topic as you. It is best to think of making a good ad that will be somewhat different and unique than the ones already done. Every clickthrough that visitors make is a point for you so make every click count by making your Adsense something that people will definitely click on.

Tips given by those who have boosted their earnings are just guidelines they want to share with others. If they have somehow worked wonders to some, maybe it can work wonders for you too. Try them out into your ads and see the result it will bring.

If others have done it, there is nothing wrong trying it out for yourself. Aslo, you will find out some Adsense Alternative network on Adswiki.Net.

Google Reportedly Tolerated Spam on Non-Search Products!

Google Reportedly Tolerated Spam on  Non-Search Products!

Google Reportedly Tolerated Spam on 

Non-Search Products!

An Ex-Googler who was the product manager of Blogger from 2003-2006 revealed that Google tolerated spam on its network. He said that resources were devoted to fight spam on the Search side but not for Adsense or Blogger spam.

According to tweets by the ex-Googler, spam was tolerated in order to grow engagement metrics at Blogger.com. The comments were tweeted in the context of criticism of Google’s handling of low quality obscene and violent content on YouTube.

Blogger Spam has Been a Problem for Publishers

Spam on Blogger gave rise to a variety of link schemes. Spammers on Blogger have used the profile to host stolen content. Blogger spam has been a problem for legitimate publishers. It’s shocking to hear that Google did not devote enough resources to fighting spam on it’s own blog network.

Google Has Been Rumored to Tolerate Spam

In the early days of AdSense, WebmasterWorld Forum members noted a lot of spam sites participated in the Google AdSense program. WebmasterWorld members called these spam sites MFAs, an acronym for Made for AdSense Sites.

Googlers are on record stating that there is a wall between AdWords and the Search team to prevent manipulation that would skew organic search results to favour the Pay Per Click side.

What I heard at the time was that there was no such wall between the AdSense and the Search departments. I don’t know if this is true. I’m just relating what I heard at the time.

Thus, the rumour went, Google could admit spam sites into the AdSense program while the Search side could take advantage of AdSense data to keep these spammers out of Google Search.

According to the rumours, the goal for admitting spam sites into the AdSense program was to increase engagement metrics but also to pollute Microsoft’s Bing search engine.

Again, I’m not saying this is true. I’m documenting what I heard because the tweet by the ex-Googler seems to partially confirm the rumour.

According to the ex-Googler, Google has a history of allowing spam on their network of sites for the purpose of increasing engagement while focusing their spam fighting resources on the search side.

YouTube Allegedly Allowed Low Quality Content

A Bloomberg article asserted that YouTube executives ignored warnings about troubles with YouTube content in order to pursue growth in engagement metrics.
That focus on growth on engagement metrics echoed what the ex-Googler tweeted.

According to Bloomberg:

“The company spent years chasing one business goal above others: “Engagement,” a measure of the views, time spent and interactions with online videos. Conversations with over twenty people who work at, or recently left, YouTube reveal a corporate leadership unable or unwilling to act on these internal alarms for fear of throttling engagement.”

What the Ex-Googler Tweeted

The ex-Googler tweeted within the context of a discussion of YouTube’s issues with problematic content. He affirmed that Google’s commitment was to grow the platforms:
“Platforms believe that more use of their products makes the world a better place. As a consequence abuse is under-resourced. Only in the financial world, like PayPal, did you see fraud prevention built in as a competitive advantage rather than a tax to be minimized.”

Google engineer Paul Haahr tweeted a counterargument based on his personal experience:

“I’d argue that web search engines have considered spam-fighting a core competency (and competitive advantage) since the early days.”
The ex-Googler agreed that Google devoted resources to the Search side.
Then he asserted that Google did not devote enough resources to the non-search platform side.
“This is a good point but if the difference between how Google dealt with off network Search spam and on network Blogger spam is also illustrative. In the case of Blogger the spam was allowed to flourish bc the fundamental goal was just to get more people to use the product.”

The Google engineer responded:

“I think my only knowledge of Blogger was from that first meeting we had after you folks were acquired, so I’ll defer to you on that. Does seem like a mistake. (We certainly cared about spam on Blogspot inside search.)”

To which the ex-Googler tweeted:

“Yah and that was the call – we can deal with it on the search side but let the pharma spam go on blogspot. To be clear I supported that call and it was embraced all the way up. But yah a mistake.”

Spam Embraced By Google Management

The shocking part of these tweets is that they revealed that the Blogger.com spam was known and approved by Google all the way up the chain of authority:
“it was embraced all the way up.”
These series of tweets appear to give more credence to the rumours that Google knew about spam in the AdSense program and tolerated it. The statement also gives a peek into the mindset at Google with regards to spam on the search side versus on its content platform site. It hints at possible motives for not adequately policing YouTube for fear of slowing engagement metrics.

10 Ways to Easily Make Money Online

10 Ways to Easily Make Money Online

There are many ways that one can earn a secondary/passive income online. These ways vary from anything as simple as filling out online surveys to earn cash and rewards, to something as complex as starting a blog to earn money by driving traffic and monetizing your content. In this article, I am going to outline not just these two ways to make money, but eight other ways in-between for someone to make money online.

  • Take Survey Sites
Survey Sites are great for making money online. However, since there are so many sites out there, you are going to want to make sure you do your research to ensure that you are picking a site that has a rich history in making people rich. Surveyswonk.com is a great resource to find such information, being that on the site there are reviews for over 75 survey sites, ranking them from most profitable and safe, to sites that you should stay clear from.

  • Data Entry
Yes, Data Entry is still around. Although computers can do almost anything these days, there is still demand for data entry analysts to transfer anything from data into forms to translating transcripts into foreign languages.

  • Cash Back Sites
If you find yourself shopping online, you’re going to want to check this option out. There are sites out there that you can earn money by just doing your shopping online through their site, and affiliated sites. Ebates, and Mr. Rebates, although similar in name, are two separate companies that offer cash-back opportunities for shopping online. On these sites, you can find coupons for products that earn you a percentage of your purchase back. This is a great way to save earn some money by doing something that you probably already be doing, shopping online.

  • Investing
One can make a lot of money investing online, keeping an eye on their stocks, trading, selling, and all that wiz. However, if you are someone that is not as up to date on the stock market as you’d like, there are options for you to invest still and make money. For example, a site like Acorns is a great way to introduce yourself to online trading and investing. Acorns is a site that rounds all your purchases up to the dollar and invests those extra cents into low-risk investment opportunities that will yield a profit over time.

  • Freelance Writing
Money times, websites are looking for freelance writers to create content for them, and in return, the writers either receive an up-front payment, whether it be per word, or straight up for the article, or a percentage of the money that the website makes from the article. You can look for these opportunities by searching your favorite sites, and looking for a “Write For Us” section.

  • More Freelance Work
A site that has taken off recently that can earn you money online is Fiverr. Fiverr is a marketplace for freelance work where you can find postings about job opportunities that you can complete online. These pay anywhere from a few dollars, to upwards of $100 for bigger jobs, and once you find your groove, you can crank out multiple jobs a day, earning yourself a nice little paycheck at the end of the week.

  • Start a Website/Blog!
You can make a lot of money online just by sharing your opinion and attracting visitors. The first step to this is finding your niche, and creating content for your site. Once you have a lot of content, you can work on getting your website or blog visible on search pages, which will come with the more visitors that you receive.

  • Sell your Stuff!
We have all seen those episodes on TV about Letgo. However, if you are one of those that haven’t, let me tell you a little about it. Letgo is an online marketplace where people sell their used items directly to you. There is no middleman, and Letgo does not even charge a fee. So, if you have an old set of Cd’s laying around that you don’t want or a mini Kegerator that you haven’t used since college, sell it on Letgo, and pocket that money.

  • Check Out YouTube
YouTube is a great way that you can earn money online. YouTube? Yes. YouTube. Although you may be thinking that YouTube is just a website that you can find videos on your favorite TV show moments, or searching for new music, there can money made on it. People these days get paid on YouTube to create video tutorials, steam video games, and even advertise products. This process takes a while, being that you have to build up a following first before you can start seeing money, but in the end can be quite profitable.

  • Virtual Assistant
Virtual Assistants can work from anywhere, at any time, for anyone. If you are proficient in some technical programs such as PowerPoint, Excel, and have strong communication skills, you can make money being a Virtual Assistant. Although I cannot give you an exact step by step procedure on how to become a virtual assistant, there are sites out there that can help put you in contact with websites and companies that are looking for virtual assistants every day.

5 Ways to Make Money Writing Blogs 

or Editing Wiki Pages

When the blogs were first introduced, they were regarded as glorified digital magazines and journals. However, in the past money-making and gaining incredible profits from blogging was never the target. But with the evolution of the digital atmosphere and the change in reasons for blogging, the blogging landscape has changed to a much greater extent.

Now in this highly-digitized age, where blogging is the core element of every marketing, advertising, promotional strategy, blogging has diversified a lot. From business and marketing to entertainment and political topics and subjects, blogging covers a larger and almost category and industry of this modern era.

Starting a blog of your own and developing is one of the crucial aspects of every modern marketing strategy. Blogging might sound like an easy job because all you have to do is to sit at home and write about something that inspires you or intrigues your interest, sounds simple right? However such is not the case, starting might be a simple task but when it comes to developing your blogs you need to acquire a considerable amount of earnings and profits from it.

Growing your blog into something that benefits you and generates money for you requires a considerable amount of hard work, ceaseless efforts and a lot of time investment. Whether you are a Wikipedia page creator or a regular blogger, to find success in the blogging universe you have to come up with original content and unique ideas which sometimes can be one of the most difficult and mind-exhausting things to do. However to make things a little bit easy for you here are the best and most widely-practiced ways to help you in making your blogs must-read articles:

Method 1: Constructing Your Own Blog:
Blogging can be a profitable career, enabling you to work while relaxing at home. However, not every blog is going to be a huge success. Making a successful blog demands untiring efforts, complete dedication, and perseverance.

 Building a blog takes time and coming up with better and improved content is one of the challenging parts of this job.

Having a clear understanding of what it takes to become a successful and renowned blogger can help you in reaching your blogging goals and targets. Collaborating with multiple recognized advertising partners can also help you in expanding the type and increasing the numbers of readers.

Even though you can blogging provides you with the benefit of working from anywhere at any time, it still requires tons of hard work. You don’t only write blogs and articles, but you also have to build contacts, promote your blogging website and manage the whole blogging community. 

Interact with the readers and make sure to give a timely response.

Method 2: Advertise Well:
Whether it’s a simple innovation or the first ever blog, nothing makes it to the front cover without a solid advertising strategy. Many blogging websites sell some space for advertising services. 

These advertising services pay the rent either for having the ad space or by how much coverage the advertisement gets. These ad services are a great way of generating income as these ads services pay as per the number of people clicking your ad.

Some of the ad services pay as per the organic traffic that your blogging receives which in most cases is not as profitable as the previous way. The revenue and profit generated by advertisements are accruing rather than one big financial breakthrough.

Method 3: A Blog for a Different Website:
The internet t is jam-packed with hundreds and thousands of smaller websites that are in a constant search of reputed and well-versed writers to create well-composed written pieces for their sites. Most of these smaller blogging sites pay well based on the quality of the content that you provided them with. So take some timeout and search for topics and sites that might help you in generating passive income.

Try to find a website that might be interested in publishing your content. Some sites might pay you more based on the acknowledgment and popularity of the published article. Since each blogging site has its own set of rules and guidelines, try to follow their content tone, article length, and writing and formatting styles to get your article featured.

Method 4: Look For Freelance Wiki Expertise:
Internet and Google are the first places that every person who is looking for a wiki writer go to. Several websites post freelance jobs for wiki writers and experts, and it can be a great way to give a breakthrough to your blogging sites.
Whether you are a Wikipedia page creator or an editor, look for such job postings that require wiki-expertise to edit or create new content for Wikipedia. Get to know more about your client’s needs and requirements and understand every detail before updating or starting off with the content creation process. Produce a Wikipedia article and submit it for client’s approval to collect your payments.

Method 5: Premium Memberships:
Another widely-used practice of money-making through blogs is to sell memberships. The key to making money through premium memberships is to ensure that you are providing your clients with something of great value, something that they will not find on another site. Make sure that you are developing something that is worth the price.

8 Reasons Why Affiliate Marketing is the Best Way to Monetize Your Website

8 Reasons Why Affiliate Marketing is  the Best Way to Monetize Your Website

8 Reasons Why Affiliate Marketing is 

the Best Way to Monetize Your Website

Simply put, it’s when you become ‘affiliated with’ another website that sells a product or service and then promotes (market) that product or service through your own site. There are various technical aspects to this, but whoever you affiliate with will provide all of the tools and guidance you need and there are whole networks dedicated to making these partnerships run smoothly.
So, what makes it such a good way to monetize your website?
1) It Suits Content Producers
If your website isn’t based on your own product or service, then you’re probably a content producer. And unless you sell information, it’s difficult to make revenue directly from that content. Your blog might have value in terms of helping, informing or entertaining readers, but nobody expects to pay to read it.
Affiliate marketing allows you to adopt somebody else’s product or service and earn a commission when it sells. Marketing is essentially producing content and since you’re already producing it, then the two go hand in hand.
2) It’s Not All About Traffic
Another common way to monetize a website is through displaying advertisements on the pages. The vast majority of advertising revenue is based on the amount of traffic you get, much like a newspaper can command better rates based on circulation.
Unfortunately, the average site simply does not get enough traffic to make meaningful money. Even when ads are targeted, the targeting is usually broad and the payoff low.
On the other hand, affiliate marketing is highly targeted. It’s not necessarily about how many people visit your site, but the type of people that visit and whether they are likely to purchase the product or service – which brings us to the next point …

3) You Can Match Products to your Audience
The key benefit of affiliate marketing and the reason why ‘it’s not all about traffic’ (though it obviously helps), is that you can match products to your audience.
For example, if you run a horror movie review site and community, then becoming an affiliate for a streaming horror movie service is going to be more beneficial than relying on ad revenue. Not only is your audience inherently interested in horror movies, but your own knowledge is going to benefit your marketing efforts. You might review the service or hype the movies that are available etc.
This is much more likely to make you money than getting $0.10 for every thousand views a random banner ad gets.

4) A lot of the Hard Work is Done For You
Businesses are marketing their product or service already. They know what works and will provide you with all the information, base materials and assets you need to succeed. Your job is to take this and present it to your audience; whether that be through blog posts and reviews, video content, passing on coupon codes and free trials or displaying highly targeted banner ads.
Of course, you can be creative yourself and include your own sales copy and delivery, but it’s not your responsibility to formulate their global marketing strategy and as long as you have a relevant audience, it’s not as difficult as it first looks.

5) It’s Higher Paying
Compared with ad networks that pay you based on the number of impressions or clicks an advert gets, affiliate marketing is much higher paying. You’ll typically be paid a percentage of the sale (commission), though some companies will even pay for an action, such as getting a user to sign-up for something.
If a visitor to your site clicks a banner ad, you only get a few cents regardless of whether they go on to spend thousands with the business that took out the ad.
If you’re good at producing content then you can make good money tapping into high-paying niches like payday loans and online lending services, lawyers, and dentists.

6) It Inspires New Content
Let’s face it if you run a blog or content-based site, sometimes you just run out of ideas or motivation to keep it updated. Affiliate marketing is the perfect impetus to keep on producing content (because you’ll make money), but also because having a product or service to market can help spark new ideas.
If a vendor releases a new deal or entirely new product, then you have a new review to write or unboxing video to produce.

7) There’s No Risk
Because you are promoting somebody else’s business, there’s no risk of losing money with affiliate marketing. It also costs zero money to get started.
The worst position you can be in after giving it a try is right back where you were at the beginning.

8) Scalability
Whether you have a few hundred daily visitors or hundreds of thousands, affiliate marketing is highly scalable. With large vendors, your site and performance are free to grow. With smaller vendors, you can grow together.

If you are looking to make money from your website or blog and have never given affiliate marketing a try, you’re certainly missing out. However, if you’re already making profits, let us know why you like it so much and share some tips below!
