I have a page at Facebook. Facebook says it will charge just $5 for the page to be shown to 1000 people. Is advertising a page for a site that has Google Adsense on it allowable? Anyone know? Is Google going to say it is manipulated traffic or something? Worse yet, can I lose my Google Addsense account?
Google basically hates Facebook, which is why it invented Google+. Google can't crawl most of Facebook because so much of that site requires a login.
Paying for (disclosed) advertising to your site is not against Google's Webmaster Guidelines and that's how Google makes 97% of its income.
That said, I don't know if it would be cost-effective for you to do that. Test it and see what the ROI is.
There is nothing to prevent you doing it other than the fact it is extremely unlikely to yield a profit.
That brings up the question "Is it targeted traffic?" It is for a niche site. I just assumed it was, but if it wasn't 1000 views isn't good.
1000 views is very small. You earn between $2 and $5 per 1,000 views on HubPages. Of the 1,000 people who visit your Facebook page, only a small percentage is likely to click through to your Hubs. So you're going to be losing money on the deal!
Barbara asked this question about a Facebook page she has for her website. She sells products on her website and builds a following of repeat visitors. It's not the same as trying to advertise a HubPages account. That kind of advertising can work very well, which is why Google AdWords/AdSense has made billions of dollars.
Yes, it makes perfect sense to at least experiment with this kind of advertising - I see Barbara says it's for a niche site. If she does decide to go ahead with it, I'd be very interested to know if it pays off.
Just now started a facebook ad campaign to promote my niche website for testing its worth. I'll keep you guys posted on the results.
shabarigirish, I'd like to hear how you do too.
Oops missed the post where she explained it's for a niche site.
I thought it might add more people to become followers. $5 isn't much to invest is why I thought about trying. If it isn't targeted traffic though, it wouldn't be worth it.
Facebook says it is targeted. Experience shows it is not. Lets say a generously estimated 10% click, so maybe 100 people, so with a generously estimated CPM of $10 you might make a dollar--for a $5 cost.
It is like listening to a gang of ten year olds speculating about sex.
Many of use here to run ads of various kinds and do not how they work, thank you every much. If you have a higher plane of wisdom I suggest that you share it, or shut up. Because the only juvenile remark I see on this thread is yours and I wonder what you get out of being unhelpful and snide. It's like living with a teenager all over again.
You spent so many years on this forum, yet you didn't learned to avoid such unpleasant parasite? I pity those people who listen to advice of some of such snarky people here, who made SO much money writing online. Only if hubpages adds the feature to ignore some users. *sigh*
Unless you have experience with targeting an advert specifically, it's not worth it.
There are ways you can pull the Facebook IDs of all the people who are in a certain niche Facebook group, for instance, and target the adverts so only they see them.
Or you can just target (if it's a post you're promoting) certain countries, languages, genders, age groups etc.
But unless you know your demographic very well, chances are you won't get good ROI.
I spent $50.00 to see what would happen with Facebook and was able to target a pretty specific demographic. That added 120 new likes to my page and a year later zero dollars in sales.
I guess it isn't a good idea then. Thanks for sharing.
I think spending money on solo ads is better option than facebook ad campaigns, inever tried it though. They press release your webpage to 1000 readers for $50.

I haven't tried to have a plagiarized page removed from Google search since the change to the niches. How do we prove ownership if we no longer have access to webmaster tools for our pages? My recent request was rejected on this basis:'Thanks for reaching out to us.It is unclear to us whether or...

After a newly published hub was moved to DenGarden the ranking for my third most important keyword jumped from page 7 to #3. The hub was on hubpages.com for 2 days I guess and it's been on Dengarden for 5 hours now (indexed for 5 hours on Google). Rankings will fluctuate a lot, but I think this is...

Back-links are the main aspect of off-page SEO. There are several ways to get back-links. Social media, like posting your hubs to Facebook and Twitter, forum posting, and blog commenting are the most common. Just stay away from paid back-links, Google is cracking down on that finally. Then there is...
