How would you like to increase your monthly website revenue by
25% with only a few hours of work? What if I said that it
wouldnít cost you a dime? Itís hard to believe isnít it?
I know this claim sounds as though I should be pitching a $200
get-rich-quick scheme in the next couple of paragraphs, but
not. The technique I used was free to me, and Iím sharing this
information with you free of charge because Iím more excited
about this discovery than I can put into words.
What did I do to achieve this jump in revenue? I placed Google
Adsense advertising boxes on my website, and in just the first
seven days, I generated over $1700 in Adsense revenue. Even
better, I didnít have any decrease in sales from the original
source of revenue for these sites Ė paid memberships to my
wholesale information directory.
Iíve known about Adsense for years, but I always thought that
it was a system best used by free informational websites
needing to generate revenue. My reasoning behind this was that
I thought that these ads could possibly bleed traffic from my
site and steal potential paying customers. Iím happy to say
that I was wrong, and I only wish I would have tested this
program earlier to discover how wrong I was.
I am completely surprised by how well these advertisements
paid. They are producing income at a rate of over $20 per
thousand impressions. I have done some research on ad
agencies, and I donít think that there is an agency online
could sell ads for me at the rate of $20 per thousand
impressions, and I know that if I advertised banner space or
text link space on my site that I couldnít sell space at a
of $20 per thousand impressions.
To put it into perspective, I do a lot of advertising through
PPC networks, and my PPC ad spending doesnít even come close
a rate of $20 per thousand impressions. Google Adsense may
be the most lucrative source of income for website owners
seeking to sell ad space on their site, and the results are
instant. All you need to do is place the code and let your
current visitors click on the link ads.
There are many people on the Internet who sell information
products claiming to have the secrets to generating high
through Adsense, but thereís no need to pay to learn how to do
this. Itís a very simple system that is easy for anyone to
implement. All you need is:
1. A website with quality content
2. An existing traffic source, be it 100 visits a day or
100,000+ visits a day.
3. The ability to read the Google Adsense Program Policies
4. Free page real estate, hopefully in a conspicuous place
above the fold
It is that simple; however I cannot stress enough that you
the Google Adsense Program Policies. There are certain types
sites, certain types of pages, and certain types of
on and through which Adsense will not allow their ads to be
associated. It is each advertiserís responsibility to know
their guidelines and avoid breaking any rule that could put
their account and an excellent source of revenue in jeopardy.
Finally, let me stress that these ads should be placed in a
conspicuous place. Visit the site linked in the ďAbout the
AuthorĒ section below for examples. No matter how effectively
your site is designed, more people will leave a page without
reading below the fold than will continue on to the bottom of
the page. For that reason, as youíll see in my site, I place
the ads at the top right of my page, in an area where any
visitor to my site can find them.
Adsense is an excellent source of revenue for any website
owner. Donít waste time like I did. Place some ads on your
site, and Iím sure youíll be pleased with the results.
