Do you keep hearing about all those people making a fortune on AdSense? Have you actually ever met one? No. Neither have I. But you can make good money with AdSense, IF you know how. I’ve bought ebooks promising overnight success, but never made the big bucks. Soon I understood earning with AdSense is a lot like farming.
Some crops (keywords) yield a higher price than others and the more fields you have planted, the better your chances. Of course, your “field” is a website that can be had for next to nothing so even small profits are pretty much all profit. Btw – I’m not making a fortune but I make an average of $3.50 per day; about $105 a month, per site.
I’ll show you exactly how I did it, step-by-step. First, if you don't already have one, sign up for a free Adsense account at http://www.google.
com/adsense. But do NOT get your ad code yet. I have some tips that can triple your response rates - and income. Next, to get great free information about your visitors, get a free Google Analytics account at http://www.
google.com/analytics/. Third, sign up with http://www.
WhyParkWeb.com or a similar service. Just be sure to pick one that can create content rich, search engine optimized sites for you automatically.
That’s how you make your AdSense money. When I registered for this service it was $99 and would let you have 100 automatically created websites – forever, with no additional fees. Here are some expert tips from a 9 year experienced SEO specialist. This information will put your sites over the top! Let's do this by the numbers. #1 Find the best keywords Google gets more searches than any other search engine so let’s peek into their database.
Check out https://adwords.google.com/select/KeywordToolExternal and enter a keyword or phrase of keywords that you think your target audience is looking for. Try to use specific keyword phrases whenever possible.
If you have a web-page that deals with floral delivery, instead of “flowers”, which has 233,000,000 competing pages on Google, try “send flowers”, which has 1/10th the number of competing pages. Or, better still, think in the same terms that people speak (I.E./ I’m sending flowers to my mom.
) As it turns out, a lot more people are searching for “sending flowers” than are searching “send flowers” and – here’s the best part – “sending flowers” has less than 1% of the competing web-pages as the search term we started with, “flowers”. Now that’s impressive! You have an advantage over about 99.5% of your competitors with just this tip. #2 Write a killer title Google loves Take your most important specific and general keyword phrases and put them together, specific first; general second.
Let's use "sending flowers" and "flowers". Now split the keyword phrases by a pipe (the vertical key over the Enter/Return key). We now have "sending flowers | flowers". Now go back and grab one or two more relevant keywords like "wedding flowers" and "Mothers Day" and combine them like this "sending flowers | flowers for weddings, Mothers Day and more". Now you've covered all your bases and build a fantastic keyword rich title that won't look like keyword spamming.
Feel free to change Mothers Day to Valentines Day, or any other holiday, with the calendar. #3 Write a META description that gets you noticed This is important. Not only can this tip alone get you ahead of most competitors, but it's also what readers see of your site before they decide to visit. You should write for people, but using a method search engines like.
Don't worry. It's a lot easier than it sounds. Now take each of your keywords and line them up in order of importance. Because the term "sending flowers" gets more searches than the others, we will start there and use the same logic for the rest. So, in order, we have "sending flowers", "flowers", "wedding flowers", and "Mothers Day.
" Now improve your keyword prominence (relevance based on position) by using your best keyword in the beginning of the description: "Sending flowers has never been easier. Here you will find inside tips on the least expensive ways to send the freshest wedding flowers, Mothers Day arrangements or whatever else you need.” We used all of our keywords without overloading the text and broke it up a little by adding some detail. It works great! Try to keep the description under 250 characters, if possible - including spaces. #4 Add great content Why Park does 99.9% of the work for you.
All you have to do is enter your keywords into the article finder provided by the "Research Your Keywords" link (located beside the keywords box.) Without using any imagination at all, I found 172 articles in a few seconds. sending flowers - 5 flowers - 151 wedding flowers - 16 Total Articles: 172 Add "roses" and get another 59! That's 231 articles in 10 seconds.
Okay, you get the idea. Adding additional general, yet, related keywords can take you over the top. This will give you a great, content-rich search engine friendly site, in seconds! #5 Use the best-pulling AdSense ad style and color combination My click-through rate (CTR) tripled when I switched to this format. Select ad size 336 x 280. If that's too big, try 300 x 250. And try to make your ad border and ad background colors the same as your Website's background color.
It helps it blend in and take away some of the "advertisement" feel. It's also usually best to go with the standard blue hyperlink color for the actual links. #6 Get submitted to major search engines fast and free I use this place all the time.
