Simple steps to triple your adsense income

Updated on August 22, 2009

Simple steps to triple adsense earnings

Here are some steps that will help you to triple your AdSense income.The steps may seem very simple to you. So don't let yourself down due to its simplicity.

Here's the brief of this hub:

  • Choosing the best ads for your site.
  • Best ad positioning
  • Merging ads with content
  • Suitable pages for placing ads
  • Tweaking content
  • Bringing traffic
  • Tracking performance of ads
  • Using AdSense for search to boost income
  • Using referral ads
  • Tweaking the ads based on results

Choosing the best ads for your site:

You should find out which ad fits into your site.This is the primary step.Don't think that text ads are always better than image ads.It is not so.

The choice of ads depend on the audience that view your website.This is very important in achieving a very high CTR rate.

For eg : If your site is about games the image ads will be the best option.Because most of the visitors will be children and they do tend to click on image ads more than text ads.

If your blogs readers are mostly adults , I mean people aged more than 20 years , then choose text ads.

Best ad positioning:

Best ad positioning is very very important for achieving maximum click through rate.Place the ads in parts of the page which gets maximum attention from the user.You can place ads between content , left side bar or right sidebar.The idea behind it is simple.The user should see the ad.

Merging ads with content :

If you can merge the ads and content i.e, tweak the color and appearance of ads and content so that the ads don't stand out as ads.This will bring you more clicks.Remember the simple rule : more the clicks , more the income.

So try to merge the ads and content as much as possible.

Suitable pages for placing ads:

You should place AdSense ads on pages that has good content.The content should be demanding.The content should be interesting too.If you feel that the content is not that interesting , then place non Google ads that pays on impression basis.Don't place AdSense ads on non content pages.

Tweaking content :

Tweaking the content means the presentation.The presentation of content should be very good.It should be readable.If possible split the content into many pages. Give headings and subheadings.Also give links to other pages.

Include pictures to make the content more lively.Also use the best suitable colours for the website or blog.

Bringing traffic :

There are lot of ways to bring good traffic to your blog or website. It has been discussed by many hub authors lot of times in hub-pages.I will summarise it for your benefit.

  1. Submit URL of website or blog to yahoo, Google and msn.
  2. Submit your blog to all blog directories.
  3. Use social bookmarking services like stumble-upon, reddit, digg and delicious.
  4. Write a good article in a leading newspaper and give a link to your website along the content.
  5. Use track back and ping back
  6. Submit detailed comment in other people's blogs with a link to your blog
  7. Don't send spam emails.

Tracking performance of ads :

Use the feature called channel in AdSense control panel to track the performance of ads.Creating channels will enable you to know from which ad the clicks came .So you can know which ad block is performing well.Also you can find out from which page the clicks came from.You should use this feature.Without using this feature you are left with no idea about the best performing ads.

Using AdSense for search to boost income :

Are you using AdSense for search in your site or blog. If not you are loosing some money.Adsense for search will make money for you when users click on the ads that appear in search results .

Using AdSense for search gives you two advantages :

  1. You can place site search using AdSense for search in your site.Site search means a search that is limited to pages in your site alone.This will help the user to locate any content in your site easily .This will improve user friendliness of your site.
  2. Every time someone clicks on ads in search results(site search results) you will earn money.

So use AdSense for search.

Using referral ads :

You can use referral ads too.Referral ads pay you when the user clicks in the ad and performs and action.It may be a sign up for purchase.

You can use referral ads for referring Google products like AdWords , Google pack etc.There are also third party referral products available.some publishers are making a lot of money via referral ads.

Tweaking the ads based on results :

Observe the results .This is very important. Once you have done the rest of steps you should observe the results of the ad placement , ad selection , ad color etc.If the results are good keep it as such .If the CTR is low , you can change the positioning of ads and then observe the results.By doing this you will gain necessary skills needed for an AdSense publisher.

Note :

  1. Don't ever click on your own ads.
  2. Don't ask anyone to click on your ads
  3. Don't send spam mails for achieving traffic
  4. Don't use automated hits programs

Some updations :

This is a wonderful trick to improve your adsense income.Its very easy to implement.This works by filtering out the low paying ads from appearing in your site.

How to do it ?

Observe the ads taht appear in your blog /site.Note down the url which the ad points to.Dont click on the ad.Now visit the page specified in the ad.Look whether the site has adsense ads.If it has , then the pay per click of their ads can be low.Note down the url of low paying ads.Apply this method for all the ads taht appear in your blog/site.

Now login to adsense.Under competitive ad filter paste the url's of low paying ads.Done.

Now your blog/site will display high pricing ads.

Don't quit if you don't make any difference at first.


A quitter never wins and a winner never quits.

      Great hub, I hadn't really appreciate the science behind ad placement. Do you experiment with the placement of your ads to determine which type gives the highest CTR for it's position? If so, how long do you leave an ad before changing it's position?

      glassvisage , the tweaking with the ad placement can be done perfectly in your own websites than in hub. In hubs the ads are placed using an automated system.I guess its a module which determines the word count and places ads accordingly.Thats the reason why the ads change in color and format at random.The color, border, location and format of ads changes according to an algorithm coded into the system.

      As far as I guess the ads that appear between content gets most of the clicks than ads appearing just below the title.Its because a person familiar with hub-pages can easily identify those ads.So they would refrain from clicking.

      Its a good idea to get more clicks because the amount of money can increase with clicks.

      A word of caution : Dont pay for any ebook that gives too good to be true claims.

      Thanks for the tips!

      What do you mean "stumble your hubs"? (I am kind of computer illiterate) Excuse my lack of knowledge, but I am trying to learn


    • creativeMind profile image

      creativeMind 9 years ago from Cochin

      I went through your hubs. All of them are informative.It would be better if you put more content ( try adding 2- 3 paragraph more ) in your hubs.

      Also post a link to your other hubs from the hub which is getting more traffic.It will surely bring you more traffic. Make sure that you stumble your hubs after you publish it.

      I may have to come back and post questions, but I probably should look at my hubs first. I think the content is probably good, but I may need help with ad placement and certainly trafficing. I am very new to this whole webpage thing, but I am a good writer and I hope I can make some money at it eventually. If you have a bit of time, please just take a peak at a couple of my hubs, and maybe give me a critique. I'd really appreciate it.

      This is good information, and I'm going to review it again. I'm not making any money yet, and I think this will be helpful. I've never been too focused on the marketing, I enjoy writing more. Hopefully, I can address some of these issues on my pages. I would appreciate any feedback you could offer.
