Below are some 5 proven ways on how best to improve your Adsense earnings.
1. Focusing on one format of Adsense ad. The one format that worked well for the majority is the Large Rectangle (336X280). This same format might have a tendency to result in a higher CTR, or click-through rates. You might ask yourself why choose this format out of the many that you can use? The answer is that basically the ads will look like normal web links, and people, being used to clicking on them, click these types of links. They might or might not know that they are clicking on your Adsense but as long as there are clicks, then it will all be to your best advantage.
2. Try to create a custom palette for your ads. Choose a color that will match with your site’s background. If your site has a white background, then try to use white as the color of your ad border and background. The idea for you to pattern the colors is to make the Adsense look like as if it is part of the web pages. Once again, This will result in more clicks from people visiting your site.
3. Try to remove the Adsense from the bottom pages of your site and put them at the top. Don’t attempt to hide your Adsense. Put them in the place where people can see them quickly. You will be very much amazed on how the difference between Adsense locations can make when you see your earnings.
4. Try to maintain links to relevant websites. If you think that some sites are better off than any of the others, try to put your ads there and try to maintain and manage them. If there is already lots of Adsense put into that certain site, then put yours on top of all of them. That way, visitors will see your ads first when they browse into that site.
5. Try to automate the insertion of your Adsense code into the webpages by using SSI (or server side included). Then, ask your web administrator if your server supports SSI or not. How do you carry this out? Just try to save your Adsense code in a text file, save it as “adsense text”, and then upload it to the root directory of the web server. Then, by using SSI, try to call the code on other pages. This tip will save you a lot of time, especially for those of you who are using automatic page generators in order to generate pages on their website.
These are some of the tips that have worked very well for some who look to generate hundreds and even thousands of dollars on their websites. It is quite important to bear in mind that the ads must be displayed because they tend to fit the interest of the people who view them. So focusing on a particular topic should be your first purpose because the displays will be especially targeted on a topic that people will be already viewing.
Try to note also that there are many other Adsense users who might be sharing the same topic as you. It is therefore always best to think of making a good ad that will be somewhat different and unique to the ones which have already been done. Every clickthrough that visitors tend to make will be a point for you, so try to make every click count by making your Adsense something that people will definitely want to click on.
Tips given by those who have boosted their earnings are just some strategies that they would like to share with others. If they have somehow worked very well for some, then maybe it can also work wonders for you. So, try them out into your ads and try to see the result that it might bring.
If others have done it and succeeded, then why not try it yourself?
