Taking care of the ads
This is the foremost thing you should do to achieve success in Adsense. You should check whether your ads are relevant to your website content or not. If ads are irrelevant then there is less possibility of getting clicks. Then what should you do to deal with this problem? Here are the tips:
• Use free keyword tools like Google Adwords Keyword Tool to get a better idea on keywords related to your topic. This will suggest you rich quantity of keywords related to the topic with its popularity.
• Focus on one topic on page; don’t offer two – three unrelated topics on same page.
• Mark keywords in your content as bold or italic. Don’t do this more than 2-3 times otherwise search engine will assume that you are spamming.
• Use keywords in your page title like “How SEO helps in Adsense Revenue”.
• Place your article title in header tag H1 and use some keywords.
Adsense ads look
Make your site simple and attractive, use lighter color theme and blend your ads with site color scheme.
For instance, if site background color is white, customize your ads border and background color to white as well.
Use image smartly
Image attracts eyes so use it smartly with wide ads (336x280, 300x250 or 250x250) and skyscraper (120x600 and 160x600). Because these ad formats are the best performing.
Always use Link Unit
Always use at least on Link Unit ad on your page and try to place it near your navigation menu. Visitors will mistake it as a navigation menu and will click it. If your ads are closely relevant to your content, there's big possibility they will click it.
Use Google Search Box
Embed Google Search Box in your website. However this will not significantly increase your CTR but can fetch sum extra bucks. You don't need to develop your own search algorithm, let Google handles it.
Increase site traffic.
In order to increase your web traffic firstly you have to do SEO (Search Engine Optimization). Then submit your website to several search engines, directories, and free articles directories. Also do backlinks to your own article.
If you have many interests, do not mix them in a single website. You better create different websites for each of them. For example, you like cricket, cooking and gardening. Do not put them together into a single website because it will make it too general. You better create three different websites for each of them. This will make them more specific, has more targeted visitors and your keywords will not be diluted.
Apart from these many webmasters and SEO persons suggest using high paying keywords but these are highly competitive and this stiff competition may discourage new publishers. Try using popular keywords like 300-400 searches per day. This may be less paying keywords but for new publisher it’s a good start.
If you are a novice Google Adsense publisher then you need to be patient. You won't become a millionaire within a night. Adsense earning takes time unless you already have huge amount of traffic.
