The adsense conspiracy

    Many people have their own views and opinions on how to get the most money out of Adsense. Personally, I just write about anything I can - whether or not it pays alot.

    The hubs I write get indexed in google very quickly and I have no idea why. Me and my girlfriend joined Hubpages to see who would rank higher but now I'm being accused of being a part of a conspiracy!
    This is her theory:
    I index much quicker because I all I use is Adsense. Apparently, when Google inc. realise that my adsense id is on a new page, they crawl it and index it right away. They do it because I only use adsense and nothing else, so they make sure they index me. Google loves me for that reason.

    Can someone redeem me please?! There is no explanation good enough for her and even though I know shes talking bull, I don't know how to argue it!

    Your turn to make her the wiser!

      Wikipedia (among others) do spectacularly well in the SERPs despite the fact that they have no advertising, of any kind, on their pages.

      And the publishing site I'm having least success with is Google Knol.

    I think you have a point retellect.  I used to put a lot of amazon products on a hub even tho it might have a very slight connection to the story because I thought I might get lucky.  But actually, ever since I've taken out the amazon, the "page" looks more attractive and I've gotten a lot more google clicks.  I did this after Helen Cater observed it.

      I'm glad you have found this has helped you too All my hubs are indexed within hours as I have no Amazon or Ebay and I get a really good click rate. I think people are more likely to click an add with earnings to us, than click on a product and have a sale.

    This is only a theory, but here’s a plausible explanation.

    It’s possible that there is a correlation. If your content is say 1000 words and you have 5 links from AdSense ads that represents a healthy ratio of original content to advertising.

    If your girlfriend has the same 1000 words, alongside 5 AdSense links, 5 Amazon links, and 5 ebay links, the content to advertising ratio is much lower. Therefore your page would be preferable.

    Might be worth testing?

    So if she's right, then everyone should publish with no other ads- just pictures, text, video, and other links- get indexed near ASAP, then add amazon and ebay.

    Hm... Someone should try it.. I would since it's been taking days lately for my stuff to get indexes, but I'd forget to go back and add the other affiliate ads/products.

    Well, I am completely lost in the world that is adsense...it makes no sense to me.  I think they should have called it nonsense, at least we would know where we all stand! There are so many different theories about how it all works.  I wonder if individual success  formulas are transferable or whether each individual produces a unique cocktail of skills, content, appeal, information etc. that even the beast that is Google is hard pressed to explain itself.   I wonder whether it simply comes down to the X Factor and whether readers and Google love your work or not?

      If the readers love your work..they probably wont click away to easily on an adsense link.

      There are certainly some surefire ways to boost your adsense income here at hubpages...for now, just two weeks in...dont have high expectations just yet ( so they cant get crushed) but do be sure to read up on keywords and adsense placement, so you can start strong with your layout and targetting

      Relache and Lissie both have hubs that explain adsense/hubpages real well

    Good point darkside, I'll tell her about wikipedia. I love the explanation about having a correlation with ad to content ratio but that doesn't help my argument!

    Whitney05, if you do try it, let me know your results! big_smile

    I think Google looks at everything, traffic (and where it came from and went) relevancy (most important)number of incoming (a lot is good) and outgoing (fewer is better) links. How well, and completely you covered the topic of your hub etc.
