Almost everyone bloggers and webmasters know about Google AdSense and most of them are using AdSense Ads on their sites. It is not easy to make money from Google AdSense now but if you can follow some of the tips and tricks here, you might be able to increase your AdSense income.
Some people are making a few cents using Google AdSense on their site. It is true that making money using Google AdSense always depend on the visitors of the site. If people don’t like the AdSense Ads, then they will not click on it. Now, as AdSense Ads are getting more popular and more general, people no longer pay much attention reading the AdSense Ads. Most of them just ignore AdSense Ads because increasing in AdSense popularity and generality increase Ads blindness and as if AdSense Ads are invisible to most of the Internet users.
Therefore, in order to make money using Google AdSense, you need to have something special. What are the special things you need to make people click the AdSense Ads on your site:
- The AdSense Ads should look attractive.
- The AdSense Ads should look helpful to the visitors.
- The AdSense Ads should appear where the visitors can easily click them.
- The AdSense Ads should placement should be at the best place.
The above are very important for AdSense success because if you site have those four criteria, then you might have a larger chance of success but of course, you site need to have some visitors.
Rule number 1: The AdSense Ads should look attractive
A lot of people are saying that AdSense Ads should look like a part of your site, AdSense Ads should not look like Ads and you should blend the AdSense Ads carefully to make them look like links to more details. For me, I prefer to make them look attractive but not excessively attractive. Normally, if we make the AdSense Ads too attractive or too eye-catching, people would not click on them.
Some steps to make AdSense Ads attractive but not excessive:
1. Avoid using highlight colors.
Highlight colors should be avoided. Avoid using red color as the title of AdSense Ads because it would make the AdSense Ads look excessively attractive. You can use some colors that are comfortable for the eyes such as green. Choose the green color that is comfortable for the eyes.
2. Avoid using frames for AdSense Ads.
Using frames on AdSense Ads would make it looks like a frame of advertisements. This is actually making them over attractive. Placing a frame on AdSense Ads will make the advertisements look a lot like advertisements which would be excessively attractive.
How to make AdSense Ads attractive but not overdo it?
If you are familiar with AdSense, you will notice that you can choose between Image Ads and Text Ads. Personally, I will prefer to use Image Ads because Image ads are normally more attractive. People would normally click on image ads.
Image Ads provide quite a lot of advantages:
- Image ads provide clear and straightforward information.
- Image ads show clearly the content of the site after clicking.
- Image ads are already attractive and effective.
By using image ads, we do not need to make it look attractive and we do not need to choose the colors of the title, the text and the link. Everything is clearly done. Personally, I have clicked on some image ads because I found those ads look interesting. So, if image ads work on me, then it would work on other people too.
Rule number 2: The AdSense Ads should look helpful to the visitors
This rule is not easy to implement because you need to make the advertisements to look as if useful likes to more information. So, it has to do with the placement of advertisements on your site. I found some people are placing the advertisements within the contents of their site. This would greatly help to get a lot of clicks on the AdSense Ads.
Some of the optimizations to make the ads look better:
- As I have mentioned above, do not use frame for AdSense Ads.
- Use Image Ads and place within your contents.
- If you are using text ads, then try to use different combination of colors to make the ads look attractive but not excessively attractive.
The best way to get more clicks on AdSense Ads is to place AdSense Ads within the contents of your site. This will surely help you gain a lot of clicks on the AdSense Ads.
Rule number 3: The AdSense Ads should appear where the visitors can easily click them.
This rule also talks about the placement of advertisements on your site. From some research done, it is found that people tend to read a site from top-left to right. So, by placing AdSense Ads on the left area or placing AdSense Ads on the top-left area of your site will normally perform better.
It is normal for us to read from left to right. So, we would normally start looking at the left side and then to the right. So, if you could place AdSense Ads using image ads on the left or top-left of your site, then it would normally perform best.
Rule number 4: The AdSense Ads should placement should be at the best place
Always remember to place AdSense Ads on the place that perform the best. Some of the great placements of AdSense Ads will be:
- Top-left area of your site (As stated on rule number 3.)
- Center top area of your site.
- Within the contents of your site.
Personally, I have created a simple way to gain more attention to AdSense Ads on my site. Since AdSense policies do not allow us to place image next to AdSense Ads to gain more clicks, I think f a way to make it possible.
How to place image next to AdSense Ads to gain more clicks:
Normally, I will create an Image Only Ads in my AdSense account then I go ahead and create a Text Only Ads. Then, I would place both of the AdSense Ads next to each other on my site. This way, the image ads will act as a way to attract attention to the text ads and image ads alone would perform best. This method act like a combo and you would not get your account banned by Google AdSense.
