How To Embed Adsense Ad Code Manually

Adsense Ad - Link - Searh


First I want to briefly discuss Adsense eCPM which is Effective Cost Per Thousand Impressions. It took me a real long time to grasp what this meant for me as a publisher.

Google Adsense describes the eCPM as your estimated earnings for every one thousand impressions. eCPM is calculated by dividing your estimated earnings by the number of page impressions, (views) then multiplying by 1000.

One of the examples they give within your Adsense account is, if you earned $0.15 from 25 impressions, then your page eCPM would equal $0.15 / 25 - 1000, or $6.00. If you use your calculator do the following. 15 ÷ 25 = 0.6.

Another example is if you earned about $180.00 from 45,000 impressions (views) then your page eCPM would equal $180.00 / 45,000 - 1000, or $4.00. Use your calculator and do the following. 180 ÷ 45.000 = 4.00.

Adsense publishers know that they can earn revenue when visitors click on the Ad and Link Units which are show on their websites, blogs, articles and hubs but do many think about earning revenue from impressions? I didn't when I first started because I didn't understand it and it was all foreign to me. It took me a long time to truly understand how Adsense figured out how publishers earn from impressions. Impressions do matter and impressions over time can add up to a pretty penny.

I felt it would be a wise move to start this hub with the explanation of how we publishers can earn revenue from Ad impressions because now I will discuss how I am increasing my Adsense revenue from making a few adjustments to free websites which I have created.

Adsense Allows: Three Ad Units and Three Link Units per each web page so why not get the most from your efforts. I personally never used three Ad Units and Three Link Units on the same page but I made the effort to tweak and edit my websites to embed three Ad and Link Units. The reason why I decided to do this is because I want to earn revenue faster and I feel I was short changing myself. Think about it, if you received 50 views a day to one of your websites which display Ad and Link Units you earn revenue from the impressions (views). All six Ad Units and Link Units receive an ad impression.

I've been trying real hard to truly grasp and understand how Adsense works and I hope I have helped you understand Adsense much better than you did before you read this article. I hope I helped you learn how you can tweak your website to earn more revenue from it.

Click here to be directly brought to the Google Adsense Program Policies for Publishers. Read it once a week if your still learning. I still read it and I probably will read it for years to come. There is a lot to learn when trying to earn revenue with the Adsense Program but learning the rules, guidelines and policies can help you earn more.

When you come across websites with Google Adsense Ads on them take the time to actually look at webmasters formats. Where do they place the Ad Units throughout the website. Where do the webmasters place the Link Units throughout their website. Keep teaching yourself how webmasters embed the Ad and Link Units throughout their websites. It's worth doing some research and it's worth it to keep trying because eventually you will understand how to get the most from your efforts. It adds up.

      Hi Wildris,

      Yes, Adsense to me is hard to grasp but I am getting better. I do all the program policies and guidelines often. I figure eventually it will all make sense to me. All in due time. I hope my hub helped you a little bit.

      Very informative...I think. Adsense baffles me. Your advice to look at sites which use Adsense effectively seems worth the effort. I guess I need to read the Adsense policies a few more times.
