How to increase Google Adsense revenue

Updated on December 12, 2010

Everyone is familiar with Google Adsense. Many have earned thousands of dollars using Google Adsense. Some have earned millions of dollars using the program. Unfortunately, with the amount of success associated with this program, multiple times as many success stories end up in failure.

Today, its a lot harder to make success with Google Adsense because of the decreased amount of money and increase in false clicks on ads. Advertisers are not willing to spend a lot of money using Adwords because they feel they will not get the traffic they deserve for their buck. Still there are some people who will pay a good amount of money to have their ads hosted on websites.

Choosing keywords to use

Google Adsense earnings vary depending on the keywords used. Some keywords that paid good last year will most likely have a much lower value this year. Google Adwords isn't exactly being favored right now, seeing the amount of people losing money and getting their accounts terminated.
I couldn't give you a list, but I can tell you how to find high paying keywords. The problem with that is there is an outstanding amount of competition with most high paying keywords. So the best approach is to find a keyword that pays an OK amount of money per click, but with a limited competition rate. That way you get to get more traffic while earning a decent amount of money per click, increasing your earnings with Google Adsense.

The tool I use most of the time for my keywords is Adwords tool external from Google. I'm not sure if it gives the right amount really earned per click, but I use it to find words that will help me build traffic. Traffic can be the deciding factor in how much money you earn.

Using eBooks to promote your website to increase Adsense earnings

It seems like eBooks are becoming the great thing for people to download. The selling ratio has definately lowered. This gives those looking to apply the good ol' linking in eBook tricks a great chance to get traffic. Creating a new eBook and placing it up for sell will most likely sell few copies because people are placing them on Rapid Share. Good news is if you place your links in the books you have for sell, the torrent site's content will have all your information in it. This increases your chances of earning more money with Google Adsense.

There is also the free method. Internet marketers sometimes place free eBooks or "viral reports" up for download for the sole purpose of having it spread to as many readers as possible. As these viral reports get distributed by people to free download sites more readers will get ahold of it. They spread it to friends and family. Eventually the family and friends will do the exact same thing, bringing lots of traffic to your website, increasing Adsense earnings.

Web 2.0 sites

Web 2.0 sites are great with bringing traffic and increasing Google Adsense earnings. Hubpages being one of them is my prime money maker in my Google Adsense campaign. Unlike regular articles, web 2.0 sites allow you to add more things that will help search engines identify it and allow it to make its way to high rankings. Search engine traffic is the best traffic and that's something you definitely should work towards if you have a website. Web 2.0 sites allow you to achieve this goal.

Linking Web 2.0 sites together with your other articles and website will help your website achieve higher earnings if the content is relevant. Images and other content of web 2.0 content uses more keywords along with text available. Healthy traffic keywords and high quality content will result in more clicks on your Google Adsense Ads.

      great and very interesting hub, specially about the web 2.0.

      one tip; when you do keyword research in adwords, the amount of money per click, or ppc, is not the amount of $ you get per click, the difference between Google adwords and Adsense is about 60%. So as a publisher, you'll get around 60% of the ppc cost for that keyword.

      keep up the great work
