How to Boost Adsense Revenue by avoiding low Revenue Keywords
I was drafting an article to publish in HubPages. I first selected a title with words like finance and investing. Then I wrote a small introduction, about 200 words. It was late night and I was tired. So I decided to stop writing for now, but before I went to bed I checked the revenue potential (How much does a click on the advertisements pay ) of my article. In HubPages, the revenue potential of an artilce is shown by the number of dollar signs. My article with just a title and 200 words introduction had a revenue potential of $$$$$ (5 dollar signs), as far as I know this is very high. I have some articles in hubpages with one or two dollar signs. I was happy to see $$$$$ and went to bed. I did not understand how this happened. My hypothesis was, Hubpages calculate the revenue potential (dollar signs) by checking the title.
The next day, I continued writing. I wrote about investing in different countries, advantages, financial risks involved how to be careful to avoid debts and so on. I again checked the revenue potential. I still had $$$$$ (5 dollar signs). I was happy. I started thinking what to write next. Then I started writing about investing in developing countries. I started talking about the benifits of investing in these countries. I wrote a lot and concluded the article.
I believed that my revenue potential should remain the same. I only wrote more words than my first day, so why should my revenue potential go down. I was a bit greedy. I thought, with just an introduction, my revenue potential was $$$$$ (5 dollar signs), now I have around 800 words, my revenue potential might have gone even higher. I again checked my revenue potential. Surprisingly, my revenue potential went down. Can you believe this??? You have to!!
I was confused. Hence, I thought of sharing my experience with other guys in hubpages. I posted this problem in HubPages forum. Many replied to my post. But one person (Sophia Angelique) understood where the problem was. Thank You Sophia. If you like to read her articles (hubs) click here.
Have you ever heard about 'Key word dilution (I like ‘dilusion’ more than ‘dilution’). This was what happened to me. I started the hub with high revenue adsense keywords, like finance, investing, debts and so on. However, the more I wrote; the high paying keywords were diluted by low paying keywords. According to her "If one has too many keywords, it appears that google has a larger choice to select from. Google then uses low paying keywords as well as highpaying keywords. However, if one only uses a few keywords, all of which are pricey, then that is all that google provides..."
I decided to replace all the possible low paying key words with high paying keywords. I again checked my revenue potential. I have now $$$$$ (5 dollar signs).
