Google Adsense Adwords Arbitrage

Arbitrage is sometimes known as a "riskless profit". Website publishers are increasingly getting involved in Google Adsense Arbitrage to generate revenues.
Here's how the Adsense Adwords Arbitrage system works:
A company buys cheap ads (using a Google Adwords account) to drive users to their site where they write about topics that are likely to attract high-paying ads.
If a reader clicks on cheap ad to come to their site, and then leaves the site by clicking on an expensive ad, the website owner makes money on the difference, minus Google's cut.
But Adsense Arbitrage may not be the best way to generate income from Adsense. There are some risks involved that could eat your profits:
1. People who have already clicked on an ad are much less willing to keep clicking on more ads.
2. You will never get a 100% CTR - and every visitor exiting your site without clicking the "high-paying" ad will make you poorer by atleast 5 cents.
3. Even if you provide no exit routes other than adsense links, people may always close the browser window or type another URL in the address bar or click on bookmarks.
Of course, without advertisers' cash, this corner of the online-ad market could never flourish.
Google has also introduced a system of separate content bidding for Google AdWords. Advertisers can now choose to bid different prices for keywords depending on whether the ad appears on either the Google search engine or content sites. Previously, the single keyword bid by advertisers was applied to their ads on both search and content pages.
The move brings Google into line with Yahoo! that has run a similar dual pricing strategy for some time. It allows advertisers to compare the effectiveness of their promotions on the different mediums and vary the prices they are willing to bid accordingly. For example some advertisers might prefer to target content sites specific to the product they are selling while others may wish to attract potential buyers while they are still in the 'research mode' - i.e. when using the search engine to find product.
Google says that the new content bidding mechanism will be available to advertisers through the AdWords campaign management interface and is available to all advertisers worldwide. It also says the new service will not affect the site targeting feature, which is the tool that allows advertisers to target specific content sites in the Google network.
In addition, the minimum bid for content is now a static $.01 (in the US).

Ten Step System to Make Top Adsense Money

  1. Keywords and Competition: To make money with Adsense it all starts here by choosing high paying Adsense keywords to make more money. Look for keywords that are searched for frequently, but have little competition and build web pages around these keywords. Your pages will still display the high paying Adsense ads to make you more money.
  2. Good Domain Name: Register keyword rich appealing names. If your site was offering advice on insurance then “your-insurance-advice-site.com” is more appealing to the searcher than “ABC Insurance.com” and will lead to more traffic to make you more money with Adsense.
  3. Interesting and Unique: Content Creating unique and interesting content for your visitors so they return will make you even more money with Adsense. Your own content is best, or you can go to the article sites and use their content (as long as you abide by their rules), but add an introduction and a summary to make it unique.
  4. Professional Looking Website: Many quality templates are available for you to produce Adsense websites. Use images sparingly to avoid distracting visitors from your content and clicking on your Adsense ads. Professional looking sites make money; don’t build a website that looks like your dog created it.
  5. Optimize pages: Well optimized pages rank well and will make good Adsense money:• Title: Your keyword and a few extra words• Meta Description: Use your keyword and make it appealing• Meta Keyword Tag: Only use your keyword and one or two related keywords. • Keyword Density: Aim for 3% – 5% keyword density• Internal Linking: Use keywords in links
  6. Adsense Placement: It is well known that Adsense ads displayed at the top and middle of the page make more money than those down the side or at the bottom. Make your Adsense ads blend in with your page.
  7. Blog: Create blogs and add links to your site and to some of your posts. Blogs that have regularly posts rank higher and get listed faster than websites (any links get spider too). Write at least two posts a week and use Adsense on your blogs to make more money.
  8. Google Site Map: Getting indexed fast will make you more Adsense money. Create a Google site map and send it to them and your site will get indexed fast.
  9. Articles: Few use this method of generating free traffic to make money from Adsense. Articles also give you quality one way links. For a new site write two to three articles a week.
  10. External links: Nothing will improve your search engine rankings more than having quality one way links to your site. Good links will also give you more traffic to make even more money from your Adsense ads.This proven ten step Adsense system works. Applying the system manually is hard work and takes a lot of time. A new tool that automates most of the system has emerged, enabling production of a large number of sites in very little time – the key to make big money with Adsense.

Google's own Adsense Tips

Google is at least as interested as you are in having your ads perform well on your site. And they've gone to some work to provide the information you need to optimize your AdSense.
What's fascinating to me is that apparently not everyone bothers to read their tips. And even some that do, fail to apply it.
That said, you need to be aware that simply using their tips doesn't guarantee successful ads and decent CTR (Click Through Rate). How many times have you heard this? You have to test. You have to try alternatives and see what really works best for you, on your pages, with your content and your visitors. Test, test, test some more. Track your results, analyze them, try variations. Too many of us don't test. We hear the mantra, but we don't do the work.
First, let's see if we can get an idea about location. (The graphic is included in the article on my site or you can take a look at it at the Google link included below) Generally, above the fold, at the top center of your content, below top navigation is the hottest location. Not immediately below which is good but not quite as hot. In a left sidebar, to the immediate left of primary content or below the primary content are also good. Most other locations are generally cooler.
Again, you need to test and you need to consider your users behavior - and their behavior may vary on different pages with different kinds of content. Google suggests that in some cases, such as articles, the best location can be at the end of the article. To quote Google, "It's almost as if users finish reading and ask themselves, What can I do next?" Well targeted relevant ads right there can provide the answer.
Don't blindly assume that sticking a nice big rectangle in the center above the fold will do it. It may, but depending on your content, it may annoy or inconvenience your users.
Users tend to focus on content, navigation and to a lesser extent graphics. Positioning your ads near these elements will often work well -- if those ads are targeted to your visitors needs.
The top three performers among the Google ad formats are the 336X280 large rectangle, the 300X250 in line rectangle and the 160X600 wide skyscraper. Google reports that the wider formats tend to do better than the taller ones. One reason may be that these are, perhaps, easier to read since they have fewer line breaks and require less eye movement. But, you need to use formats that fit your pages well. Once again, you need to test, but redoing your pages to suit a particular ad format may not be a reasonable alternative and you may discover that a different format actually gets better results.
Now we come to color. Conventional wisdom says that colors which tend to blend into your content do better. Some go so far as to suggest that colors which make the ads look like part of the content are best. Personally, I think anybody really believes those ads are anything but ads, but who knows. Google suggests that you may find that colors that standout from your content do better - or maybe the opposite. This is absolutely an area where you need to test alternative color schemes. Going with the conventional wisdom usually works fairly well, but without testing you could be leaving a lot of money on the table.
Google allows you to have up to three ad units and one link unit on your pages. If you have long pages with lots of text, can only use small ad units or are in a niche with a large ad inventory, multiple units can pay off. Keep in mind that the way ad serving works is that the higher value ads are delivered to the first ad unit block encountered in your code. Always make sure that this first ad unit is displayed in the best location (yeah - test). You want the higher paying ads to be in the prime hot location on your page. Weaker locations can get the lower priced ads. And if none are available, then nothing will display unless you've included an alternate ad URL in your Google code. To maximize monetization you should be including alternate ad URLs, especially if you are putting multiple units on a page. The use of an alternate ad URL also eliminates the possibility of being served PSAs (Public Service Announcements). It's your real estate, maximize your returns.
Nothing here is secret. Except for using the alternate ad URL, all of this information is available from Google's Optimization Tips page - http://www.google.com/support/adsense/bin/static.py?page=tips.html . You can buy books and courses, visit a dozen forums and, in the end it comes down to what your visitors do on your site. The best you can get is general guidance. This means averaged outcomes over many sites, many types of content. If you are serious about doing whatever you can to really optimize your AdSense returns, there is only one thing to do - test. Whether it's AdSense, opt-ins, copy, headlines - anything with a measurable outcome that you can track - then the way to improve is to test and keep on testing.

Adsense tricks to explode your profits

There are many adsense tips floating around the internet. Here are some adsense tricks that can drastically increase your CTR and your profits. Lots of people say to make your ads blend in. However, some people are having a lot of success by making their links stand out. The most effective style seems to be having your links blue, while your other links are a less-noticeable color. A good example can be seen at www.lockergnome.com- Place images directly above your ads. This simple technique has been known to increase CTR by 400%. To keep the images fresh some people randomize related images on their site using PHP code. You can see an example of these images at
- Google has cited the 336x280 large rectangle as the most effective ad size.- Place ads where your visitors will likely be focused.
Check out this heat map by Google -
Weave your articles into your content. This is shown at locker gnome.com- Place link units in the top left-hand corner. This part of the website has shown to be clicked on more than any other part of the page. You can see an example at locker gnome.com. (Look at the links at the top, towards the left in blue.)- Take advantage of the "alternate URL" feature to avoid Public Service Ads that seep money away from your website.- One of the best things you can do is add additional pages to your site. A web site with thousands of pages and tons of content often does very well in the search engines. You can get free content from article directories. You could also use public domain content, which is a favorite tactic of John Reese. Or, you could use content in the creative commons. This is getting easier than ever now that Yahoo and others have created a search engine specifically for content in the creative commons. Succeeding with adsense is largely determined by the amount of traffic to your site. However, there are many adsense tricks that you can employ to get the most possible out of your site. Often times, this means doubling, tripling, or even quadrupling your earnings. The key is to find out what works for your web site. Testing and tracking is the key to increased revenue!

Monetization Tips for Your Blog

You can make money online by selling advertising space on your website. The advertiser gives you a banner ad that you place on your website and then you make money online whenever someone clicks through to the advertiser. If you have a website that generates a lot of traffic, you can also make money online by charging a fee for advertising space.
Monetization Tips for Your Blog
Who wouldn't want to earn some from his or her blogging efforts? Definitely not you, right? In this fast-paced life many would surely appreciate spreading their income sources and that include their trusty blogs.
So, how do you actually go about making money from your blog? Blog monetization, in terms of profitability depends on what kind of blog you are maintaining. If it is a personal blog with posts on almost anything under sun, the monetization process may take more effort than niche blogs that only tackle one field or niche. But if you are popular enough, talking even just about your Chihuahua will still make you earn some moolah.
Now, if you're not Paris Hilton, here are some tips on how monetize your blog:

  1. Put some value to your blog first.
    A blog is not worth monetizing if it's all crap. If it's a bunch of ummms and ahhhs, like some dumb@45 owns it, attempts to earn from it might be too rigorous. So, do your best on putting some helpful information in it. Don't be too fickle-minded when blogging as this will make people forget about your blog. If you want more traffic (which should be your major goal if you want more revenue for your blog), post regularly.
    According to my experience you will be getting approx. 0.10 - 0.15$ per click made on ads. The advertisement you will get it is called as Pay per Click Ads. It means you will get money for each and every click(s) made to that ads, the more user will click on your ads more you earn.
    Don't follow other's footstep. Find your own way .You can create a new market, product or service then you can sell in online or offline. If you give quality with reliability then people will purchase your product or service. Profit Lance has taken the internet marketing world by storm! My reviews at http://www.honestreview.info/profitlance/index.html
    As with any way to make money, the best way of making money online is to follow your passions. First find something you love to do, then find a way to use it for making money online.
  2. Promote your blog like there's no tomorrow.
    But don't be a spamming clown. Others try the backfire method of making their blogs known through leaving spam comments to other blogs. This usually annoys other bloggers and you may even end up in their banned lists. Participating with other blogs through giving out resourceful reactions will do the trick. Forums and other e-groups can help you in this endeavor, too.
  3. Put in the money-making products.
    Sell your products through your blog or help others sell their products through referral or affiliate programs. Displaying pay per click advertisement links can also augment your monetization feat. Google Adsense, Clicksor and YP are some of the best PPC program candidates. Amazon and E-bay have affiliate programs that might boost your income from your blog.
    Have you established your blog well enough that links from your blog could be of great value to other e-businesses or bloggers? You might want to consider selling text links. TLA or Text Link Ads, Text Link Brokers and Adbrite are some of these text link markets that can help you sell your precious link spaces.
    Those tips should arm you well enough on how work it out on your blog monetization endeavor.
    The nice thing is after you get a system in place that works for you making money on the internet is the easiest money you will ever make. More on Profit Lance and Profit Lance System .
    To make money online, you obviously need certain equipment and the ability to keep it serviceable. A lot of people online do not budget for sudden mishaps or loss of service, or computer problems.
    An average internet user comes around numerous Ads during his surfing. Majority of these Ads are of money-making or work at home programs. Have you ever wondered how these companies get so much money to distribute it among people?

6 Tips on How to Make $500 Dollars a Day with Adsense

Google's Adsense program provides the perfect way to generate an ongoing passive stream of income for the savvy internet entrepreneur. It is free to join and easy to set up.
I hear you ask, if it's so easy why isn't everyone making piles of money by slapping Adsense code into the pages of their websites.
Well there are a number of factors that contribute to a webmaster's success with Adsense not least of all having a contextual website.
If you base your quest to make $500 dollars a day with Adsense on the following, you stand a good chance of sustained success.

  1. Don't build a site for Adsense
    Apart from being against adsense's TOS, site's created purely to carry adsense ads don't work in the long term.
    They will in all likelihood get banned by Google, won't make money as well as making it difficult for you to open another Adsense account.
  2. Build a Site with Content
    Sounds obvious doesn't it, but sites that are interesting and packed with compelling content are more likely to be revisited and related ads are more likely to be clicked upon.
    Be sure to use your own original content - sites that duplicate content get penalized by Google.
    Remember that rubbish sites generate rubbish income.
  3. Choose Your Site's Topic Carefully
    Whilst your site should be based on your business interests or your hobby to keep your motivation levels high, just keep in mind that certain topics will attract higher value Adsense clicks than others.
    For example a website on the mating habits of the north sea clam probably won't attract any advertisers and therefore no Google Ads to display, let alone traffic.
    Making money online and web hosting are topics that will never be short of advertisers, however the competition is higher and therefore more difficult to attract website traffic.
  4. Niche Market
    Your best bet is to target a niche market that does not have the competition in terms of fellow webmasters but still has a certain amount of interest.
    Therefore if your website is cameras, targeting "digital cameras" would be a very competitive term, whilst targeting "underwater digital cameras for scuba divers" would be less competitive and will attract targeted traffic as well as related Adsense ads.
    It is important that you understand that the text and keywords you use and the placement thereof will influence the type of ads that are served up by Google.
  5. Type of Ads and Placement
    The placement of your ads on your web page has a direct influence on your CTR (Click Thru Rate) - the higher the CTR the more clicks your ads are generating and the more money you are making.
    To this end, take special note of the heat map provided by Google that shows the best positions for your ads on your web pages.
    Also decide carefully on the type of ads and the colors that you choose - the type that blend in well with the look, feel and flow of your site will probably be best in silently persuading your visitors to click on them.
  6. Traffic Statistics
    Finally analyze your adsense traffic stats as they're packed with useful information - Google provides such a tool for this purpose with your Adsense account.
    To make money with adsense you need to know what your stats are telling you and what you need to know.
    The amount of traffic your site generates will obviously influence your adsense income but that is a whole separate subject just on its own.
    The point is that for 2 sites generating the same amount of traffic, the site that is optimized for adsense, as above, will earn for more in adsense income than the site that isn't.
