You will of no doubt heard people talking about the importance of a high cost per click on numerous make money forums, blogs etc and the reason it is so important because your average cost per click will be the difference between a rubbish living, a good living and a very good living.
Traditionally the recommended cost per click to go after is $1 but in my opinion this is still a little light. Knowing that Google shares 68% of revenue with its advertisers alerted me to the fact that $2 should be the average. For all the work it takes to get your site ranked, write the content and insert the ads carefully you should be looking for over $1 each and every time someone clicks an ad.
Simpler – but more limited – AdSense sign
Google AdSense have announced that from today there is a change the application process for new publishers who apply to use AdSense through a “host partner site”. Currently Blogger and Hubpages are AdSense’s “host partner sites” – meaning ones where the “host” provides internet space to store the monetized content, rather than the content-owner buying the internet space themselves.
If Adsense approve your other site, they give you permission to put ads on any sites other than host-partner sites (of course they still need to meet the AdSense Terms and Conditions). If they don’t approve, you can still put ads onto host-partner sites (ie Blogger blogs or Hubpages pages), but you cannot use AdSense on other sites until you have fixed the problem(s) that stopped you from being approved..
Google have said that these changes don’t affect people who are already approved as AdSense publishers – so I won’t be able to see their effects first hand.
AdSense for Feeds Dies, AdSense for Search Rocks!
In a nutshell this is how the AdSense program works: Advertisers set up accounts in AdWords and Google will attempt to match up the ads and display them on the web pages with relevant content. The hope is that people will see an ad that interests them, and they will click through to the Advertiser’s site and eventually invest in their products or services.
My response to this negative feedback is summed up in a podcast that I recorded for teaching new bloggers how to launch their first blog. This episode is called Start Your Blogging Journey Today and one of the things I share is how you need to develop goals for your blog.
How To Be Legal With Google Adsense And Avoid Your Account Being Terminated
It may take time after applying to have your Google Adsense account approved and once that happens, it would be to the best of your interest not to do anything that could have it terminated. It is a very useful contextual ad program for making money from your blog as long as you play by the rules. Violating any part of the terms and conditions comes with the serious consequences of having your account terminated and never having the opportunity to participate again in the program.
However much you may want to make Adsense money with your blog, you cannot click ads on your own website or use any means to inflate the impressions. This is one of the most serious rules you cannot afford to violate lest you want your account terminated.
In your blog or elsewhere, you cannot tell people to click the ads. Paid to click programs are highly prohibited and considered a violation of the terms. It is absolutely not one of the strategies you can use for monetizing your blog. On the same note, you cannot send emails inviting people to visit and clicks ads on your site.
Show Me The Money – Top 5 Google AdSense Alternatives
As a blogger in a competitive and increasingly saturated market, it can be hard to continually create magnetic content, build a community and increase your skill level. On top of that, earning money through a blog is no longer a shoe-in – it’s an ongoing challenge, and for a lot of bloggers Google’s AdSense is the only life-support system they have for their writing projects.
There’s something you should know: AdSense isn’t the only option for earning advertising revenue out there. Actually, there are a whole lot of competitors, but it can be difficult to work out which ad networks are genuinely good value and which ones are out to rip publishers off. Almost every network claims to offer ‘industry-high payouts’, but all too often that is a load of hot air, and some can’t even get their home-page looking good, so why would you choose to work with them? If you find yourself nodding in agreement to any of the above, then you’ll want to continue reading, as today we’re going to go through some of the best alternatives to AdSense that might surprise you
Developed by Todd Garland in response to his frustration with the inefficiencies of other ad-publishing solutions, since its inception in 2008, Buysellads has built an impressive inventory of publishers from small to large., the team is still small and as a result when you use Buysellads you get the feeling that it is a business that understands the needs of small-publishers, which is a nice contrast to the fairly faceless character of Adsense. The site is largely automated, the interface is clean and their guidelines are easy to understand. One of the biggest benefits to Buysellads as opposed to Adsense is that the minimum payout is $20 and you can receive the money via Paypal.
Google going live with Limited AdSense Accounts for Host Partner Sites
In May 2012, Google made an announcement regarding Limited AdSense Accounts created through Host Partner Sites. According to the original announcement, Google would introduce limited AdSense accounts, which are special AdSense accounts with limited usability. However, that change did not take place until now.
According to an announcement from Google today, the changes will take place immediately. Starting from today, if you create a new AdSense account through host partner sites like Techulator.com, IndiaStudyChannel.com, Blogger.com, YouTube.com etc, those AdSense accounts will be limited to use only in the same or similar Host Partner Sites. You will not be able to use such AdSense accounts in independent domains like your personal sites until you apply for further review and complete an additional approval process.
This major change will not affect the existing AdSense publishers even if they were created through any revenue sharing sites like Techulator.com or Blogger.com. However, starting from today, if you create a new AdSense account using such revenue sharing sites, you can use that AdSense account only in Host Partner sites. If you want to use it in your own domain or in other non-host partner websites, you have to login to your AdSense account and follow the below process to request an AdSene account and implementation review.
Google Makes Changes To AdSense Performance Reports
Google announced some changes to performance reports for AdSense today. The company says the changes will improve usability and make the reports more visually compelling.
One change involves the graph area. It now covers a wider areas of the screen. Secondly, the list of metrics has been moved from the right-hand side of the screen to the top in an interactive scorecard.
There are also now new graph types, like pie graphs or bar charts. The Countries report shows where users are located on a world map, not unlike what you will find in Google Analytics.
Analysts Think A Facebook AdSense Is Inevitable
A blog post from Hunch co-founder/CEO Chris Dixon made its way to Techmeme, sharing a section from a recent Goldman Sachs analyst report, saying, “We believe there are three obvious opportunities that the company could leverage its platform to capitalize on.” These include developing an external ad network, monetizing paid search, and entering China.
“Of the three options, search is clearly the most interesting,” says Dixon. “An external ad network is inevitable. Google proved this model with Adsense. With an already huge base of advertisers bidding on CPCs, it is impossible for most other ad networks to compete on publisher payouts. But Facebook’s traffic is so great now that an external ad network might increase their revenues by 2x or so. The same goes for entering China. They might get another half a billion users who monetize at lower ad rates than US users. Neither move would put them in Google’s revenue range. They need a better business model for that. The only (known) models that deliver RPMs high enough to compete with Google are search, payments, and e-commerce.
Yahoo Resurrects Its AdSense, With a Partner
Two years after shutting down a fledgling text-based ad product that Yahoo called the Publisher Network—essentially Yahoo’s answer to AdSense, the company is giving it another go with the launch of Yahoo Bing Network Contextual Ads, a network of context-driven text ads.
Like Google’s AdSense, Yahoo Bing Network Contextual Ads will place text ads on small sites across the Web; these ads are generally related to text found on a given Web page (an article on the Yankees might carry a text link ad for sporting goods). Yahoo’s new network is being powered by the contextual ad firm Media.net,a Yahoo partner since 2010.
As you might expect, Yahoo Bing Network Contextual Ads taps into advertisers that already buy search ads through the Yahoo Bing Network (YBN), which handles search ads on both Yahoo and Microsoft’s Bing. Through Yahoo Bing Contextual Ads, advertisers can extend their search campaigns to various publishers’ online and mobile sites.
Google Adsense – Might want to avoid them. My 5-cents worth, or was that $98.00?
When I opened my 1st account several years ago, they accepted my site and implementation took place. I admittedly did not put a lot of effort into the site and let it go when the domain expired, I did how ever accumulate a few bucks in my adsense account..
When I first designed DirtyDazz.com and put it online, I tried accessing my old Google adsense sccount, to no avail. The account had been closed with out any notice. Ok, I can accept that as it was not used for 6-7 years and only around $30 in the account. But still….
So I opened another adsense account and DirtyDazz.com was accepted. I placed all advertisements in place and all ran good for around 4 months, I had accumulated around Au$98.00 in my account and was pretty happy with the out come. Then I tried to log into that account a couple of months ago to find it had been cancelled due to “invalid clicks” the reason given. In other words, someone had clicked on the google adsense advertisements on my site that were not meant to? Adsense will not discuss this. So I can only assume.
