Adsense Mistakes #12 – It’s Simple, But Not THAT Simple

The simplicity and automatic nature of Adsense can go one of two ways. Some people can think that, with the seeming simplicity of the program, there must be more to it – and drive themselves mad trying to find the “secret” of success. Others can settle on the fact that it is simple and think that they do not need to do anything to make it pay – and they are just as misguided. Adsense will do […]

Adsense Mistakes #11: Not Knowing Your Keywords

If it seems like there is a lot to remember about Adsense, then there is a reason for that – it is. Sometimes it takes almost as much knowledge not to do the wrong thing as it takes to do the right one. Sometimes you don’t have to specifically apply that knowledge, but just avoid going against it. So for anyone who feels that there is a contradiction between “don’t rely on keywords” and “make sure you […]

Adsense Mistakes #10: Not Being Image Conscious

Catching someone’s eye in a subtle way is not always easy. If you are in a crowd and want to get someone’s attention, you’ll pretty much have to jump around like a total buffoon and shout their name at the top of your voice to even stand a chance. But on the internet, this is not an option. You have to be more subtle if you want to get anywhere beyond the attention of a select few. […]

Adsense Mistakes #9: “It’s About Content, Forget The Keywords!”

Now, for all that has been said about writing to your subject and providing interesting content, there should be no confusion on the matter of keywords. They are certainly important, and outright ignoring them is not going to get anyone very far in terms of Adsense clicks. The question of balance is an important one here, and too many people make the mistake of ignoring one thing to serve another. The question “content or keywords” is a […]

Adsense Mistakes #8: Too Little Content

It cannot be said too often to people looking to make the best of their Adsense website – content is king. The number of websites you will see with uninspiring content can lead you to assume that content takes a back seat to optimization, but the fact of the matter is that the majority of those sites won’t be doing much business. It is galling for many people to hear this, but unless you go for good […]

Adsense Mistakes #7: “If Everyone Likes It, I’m In The Money”

Just as it is a bad idea to run a website for Adsense purposes and make it about an unpopular niche, the reverse can be similarly true. Now, there is an aspect of balance to be considered here. Certainly, you want to make your website attractive, and having a popular topic for it is important. No-one should try to tell you “that’s been done, try something else”. But there is more to it than that. If you […]

Adsense Mistakes #6: “If I Like It, They Will Too!”

One of the foremost rules of real estate and property development is as follows: Develop for the market and not for yourself. To take an extreme example, you might really love Justin Bieber. You might think “I’d definitely buy a house that had a huge picture of Justin Bieber on the wall, one that was impossible to remove or paint over!”. But you’re selling the house, not buying it, so what you like doesn’t matter. That’s not […]

Adsense Mistakes #5: “More Is Always Better!”

If you don’t buy a ticket, you won’t win the lottery – well, that much is true. But this of course does not mean that you will win the lottery if you buy a hundred tickets. More to the point, here’s another conundrum – if you ask one person out on a date, they might well say no, but this doesn’t mean that you should spread your chances and ask twenty people out. Why is this? Well, […]

Adsense Mistakes #4: Plagiarising Content

If you know a little bit about Adsense, then you will know that content which people want to read will attract the most clicks. It’s just common sense. Many people, aware of this fact, will make a logical leap that can get them into trouble – and it’s often impossible to have any sympathy for them when they do it. You want readable content on your site, of course. That’s how it works. But a staggering number […]

Adsense Mistakes #3: Clicking Your Own Ads

Have you heard the phrase “self-praise is no recommendation“? Well, whether or not you have, it’s true. If you are intent on becoming President or Prime Minister, then you are not going to get very far by wandering the streets saying “I’m amazing! Vote for me! Ask me about how fantastic I am – you’ll be stunned by what a good account I give of myself!“. By the same token, you are not going to make much […]
