You may find many adsense aficionados’ on the internet, purposing to make you thousands of ways to blow out your Google adsense income. Please keep in mind hub publishers you will not have access to some of these setting with hub pages and that this hub is written for those who have external or self hosted sites

From my realistic experience that nothing will generate substantial results unless you are ready to put forth that extra effort. In order to get hold of the adsense secrets that are unique to your website, you must be ready to make continuous modifications and measure the effectiveness of them on a continual basis.

Below are simple but valuable steps successfully implemented by adsense, which may help you to increase your adsense earnings substantially! Please realize that nothing would work unless you tailor these options to suit your sites.

Small Changes Reap Big Rewards

Make money with adsense

The best positioned ads - This is constantly the differentiation point which decides whether you will be earning in the hundreds or thousands. You must recognize the most likely position where your reader would be most likely to click.

You should be daring enough to do your own research and spot the best positions unique to your website. The most prevalent example I can come up with is Plenty of fish - a dating site which earns five hundred thousand dollars a month just by displaying a one Google ad in each page

Consider Your Ad Dimensions? - Highly profitable Ad formats are 768x120 and 336x250. It is up to you to find out the optimal size for your website. These are the widely used and accepted sizes. This makes them beneficial because advertisers customize their ads to those sizes.

Keeping more white space around the article will allow the ad to stand out and will there fore increase your CTR (click through rate). This provided me with a high click through rate in my Adsense ads. Your intention should be to get the reader's awareness to the adsense ad and the article. By removing all the unnecessary items which can clutter an article this will allow the ad more white space and become more likely to be clicked.

The font, color should blend in with he page we are not trying to hide the ad but we want our pages to have consistency. You are given options to use either an preferably matching color or a distinct color. Either way is valuable.

Try to maximize the amount of ads without overwhelming the reader. Constantly attempt to use most number of adsense ads in each page. Don't lose balance however! Ads should not dominate and keep your pages consistent, take Hubpages as an example.

In your adsense account constantly make use of the channels to identify which position or format has produced the highest CTR’s (click through rates). Be ready to change the ad formats, color and positioning according to your conclusions.

These simple but valuable methods will surely drive more income into your adsense account keep in mind to make sure all your organic SEO is in order too and you'll be laughing to the bank!

      Thank you very much for this information. When starting out it is overwhelming as your inbox gets flooded with mail from every marketer out there. Each one offering something better than the next. Suddenly you are floundering around not knowing which way to go.

      Thanks for the tips on positioning the ads and using the widely used sizes. I use AdSense on my own site too and I'll make those changes to see how it works.

      Thanks for the good reminders. I am always tempted on niche sites to keep the adsense in the same spot on every page just because it's easier. Back to work!
