    Looks good. I would change the color of the 160 x 600 to all black, so more attention
    is drawn to the blue links in the large rectangle at the top left of the page. You will
    earn more $$

    Just a suggestion, nothing more.

    I use the same template for HTMl sites and it works well.

    I would also change the side colors to all black text, on my site with this template the side ad block has a higer CTR then the top which is totally against conventional adsense thinking?

    Hi everyone,

    Thanks for the positive comments. It feels good coming for fellow warriors.
    I'll take your advice and change the side bar to all black and see what happens.
    I have been busy submitting articles to ezines and directories so this is the first change I've had to respond to your comments.

    Thanks again,
    Tim

    The layout looks good but, no offense, the copy is pretty trite and poorly written. If you're only trying to bring in traffic for the links, it should work well. If you're actually trying to offer important information, I think the writing (and research) needs an upgrade.

    The layout looks great. I think your copy could at the very least be organized a little better, i.e. start out with an intro then talk about the types of treatment rather than burying the treatment in the 3rd paragraph. The last paragraph doesn't belong on the page because it talks about prevention and you're talking about treatment. IMHO

      If you just created that site, then it is in trouble with duplicate content issues. I checked 2 of your pages and the content was duplicated from another site. In almost all cases, duplicated content will be penalized with respect to rankings in search engines.

  • Profile picture of the author captivereef
    I would not worry to much about duplicate content for the site, i have many sites with un altered PLR that bring in good google traffic. Plus if you are driving traffic with article marketing then it is not really an issue.

    The content seems fine to me for what is supposed to do, bring in adsense money.

    Although in the medical niche you may want to add a disclaimer page.

  • Hi Tim,

    Nice layout!

    As far as the "writing advice" from natalie1 and write-stuff, I don't think they're getting the "Adsense" part of this forum board.

    Great content and writing style is always better than mediocre content and writing style, but that isn't the point. The point is to convert traffic to clicks within the Terms of Service.

      Do you have to keep the link in the footer to the niche adsense theme website?

      I notice the page url is in this format

        Hi Kevin,

        I purchased the template from clickbank for a good price. The templates are good quality for what I paid. If you want the url to the templates, let me know.

        The instructions were veg to say the least, I'm not sure if I have to leave the link in or not. I left it there just in case. Does it make a difference one way or the other? If it does, let me know. They do have a support link on their website if you are interested.

          When I talked about the url I was speaking from an SEO perspective. The URL including 20% in it is less SEO friendly than the latter url with just the dashes.

          The link to the owner's site don't matter too much, (unless you're hung up on page rank then it would mean leaking page rank from every page on your site as the link is in the footer.)

          How do you get the links in the menu for the site? Is it an include file or something?

          Kevin.

            Hi Kevin, That's a good point. I don't want my page rank to be shared with an other site so I'll look into that.

            The 20% in the url I assume is because of the link at the bottom of my home page. I'm not sure why its in there if its not because of that.

            If anyone here can answer that for me, I'd appreciate it.

            The website template is an html file and the links in the menu are already there, I just changed them to the title of each page.

            Ok, can I but in for some explaining...

            leaking page rank____ as the link is in the footer.

            ? so.. does that mean having a link in the footer is... less than advisable?

            I have a link in the footer of every clients site I create for them, sorta like when you use a template from freesitetemplates.com the guy that created it has his/her link at the bottom.

            is there a reason to NOT do this?
            thanks

              David, Every "out going link from your site regardless of where it is on your site will leak "link juice"from your page. That is not to say you never do this. There maybe times when you want to link to another site. But in the above case there is no reason to link to that site. It gives them a boost and takes away from his site. If someone feels they need to do this, then just use a "no follow " tag in the link

        Hi Kevin, I asked the the person I purchased the wordpress templates from if I could take the link out of the footer and here is his reply:

        Sure. No problem. I think you will find the link in footer.php.

        The WordPress team recommends/requests you leave a link to WordPress.
        But, that is not required and is up to you as well.

        Have a great day, and thanks for your purchase.

        Regards,
        Mark

        I wanted to let you know in case you were still interested.

    Hi Tim45,

    Congratulations for your very first Adsense website! I am also in the process of creating Adsense websites. I like your clean layout! It must have been a lot of work to make this site in one day? Keep us updated on how the site performs for you! I am curious on to what layout or template works the best!

    ok.. your URL is a bit long and you have some extra spaces between your url,

    add a dash there and one thing, how many times that "understanding-breast-cancer-treatment" search in google per month?

    I may target breast cancer treatment as the keywords instead of "understanding breast cancer treatment"

    anyway it's my thought.

      Hi Zoobie, Thanks for your input. You have a good point and I'll try to explain why I did it that way.

      The phrase I'm trying to target is "breast cancer treatment" The word "understanding" was used to make it a more natural phrase.

      The reason I put the dashes in the url was so it would be more understandable. Try sticking all the words together and you'll see what I mean. For the most part, I think people looking for this type of information will not try to remember the url, they'll just bookmark it.

      The last point I'll make is that I was not trying to target the most searched for phrase, I was trying to target the least competitive phrase. I don't need a lot of traffic to this website to make money from it.

      Thanks again,
      Tim

    you need to make sure that your links are working, which they're not.

    plus you dont create page links like this

    "some keyword phrase to another page.html"

    you do it like this

    "some-keyword-phrase-to-another-page.html"

    replace spaces with hyphens.

      Well, the template is clean and I like that. But from my perspective I think the coloring is not so attractive. I only say that as I am a woman and I would expect your site to mainly attract women, so you might want to consider a softer color palette.

      I also agree with others - the copy is bad. I would recommend you go through each article and at least add in missing prepositions and articles (? many years since English class, I forget the terms). A rewrite would be better, but would take alot longer so maybe just clean things up a bit.

          OK, I took your advice and took the spaces out of the url
          and put caps in where they should be.

          I'm in the process of rewriting all my articles so that should
          make things better, I hope. Any writers out there want to
          help me out!

          I'm not sure what colors I should change, it looks good to me
          the way it is but what do I know...I'm a man.

    Hi, Tim. Looks like your links are working now. It's not an SEO issue, but your About page talks about wordpress, something irrelevant to your visitors. Instead you might want to make a statement about "Your Site Name" is offered as a public service and shouldn't be used in lieu of consultation with a physician, blah, blah.

    You have a heading up in the banner, but repeat that same heading below it in the page. I'd suggest that you make this second heading different. Make it a page heading for each individual page. Also, you should consider adding meta tags for description and keywords, customized for each page.

    Good luck with it. - Russ

    Tim,

    There is a good WP plugin you can add for SEo. It's called all-in-one-seo.

    Also, you may want to shorten your urls on pages to just the keywords. You are using the whole title, but you could shorten. I'm not an expert here so maybe someone else can chime in, but I think a shorter, keyword file is better for SEO.

    Also, I would change the adsense in your sidebar to blue links like you have above the post. Black doesn't look much like a link and your adsense clickers are usually less internet-savvy (they expect links to be blue).

    Hi Tim

    Just a thought...

    if you have a Clickbank id why not make the footer link to the template vendors site your affiliate link? I had a quick look in the CB marketplace and he pays $17.97 per sale.

    Also, why not have this link open in a new browser window?

    I noticed you do not have a privacy policy. Google recently (February) added a privacy policy to thier TOS for Adsense.

    There is a plugin for Wordpress that will generate one in seconds. I can't post links yet but if you Google "wordpress privacy plugin" you'll see it.

      Hi, try changing the color of the title in the code itself or delete
      the code from your website and go back to google and make a
      new code, one or the other should work.

      The content and the layout of your website is very important,
      you should try different things like write some articles about
      the theme of your website and place the main one on the home
      page of your website then submit other articles to ezines and
      directories with the url to your website in the bio box.

      Also try different size ads at the top and side where people
      are most likely to click.

      The free adsense videos in the link below is very helpful on how
      to monetize and build adsense websites.

      Hi, there are a lot of great WP themes out there
      that are free but, this theme is not free but
      very reasonably priced. you get 24 themes with this
      package for just $27.00. If you are interested, I put
      a link to the templates at the bottom of my website.

    Hi Tim, congrats on your earnings so far! If you are worried about your articles and don't have the budget to pay a writer just yet try using the everprofits toolbar with internet explorer. It fetches keyword related content for you ie an article and you can rewrite it by adjusting the percentages ie 50% etc. I'm a bit of a fusspot myself so I use it capture research and then I just rewrite that in my own words.

    I hope that this helps you.

    Hi Everyone, I have made changes to my website that warriors here reccomend I do. I rewrote the article on the home page, added an affiliate banner to the top and bottom of the page, added a privacy policy and a link to this template at the bottom of the page. your constructive criticism will be appereciated. Here is a link again to my first adsense website:
    Understanding Breast Cancer Treatment

    Thanks,

    Hey Tim45,

    good job, keep it up.

    With all the varying opinions, I bet you feel like you're being pulled in a hundred directions.

    I wouldn't worry too much about making each article perfect, as long as they're readable and make sense. That's not the main purpose of the site after all.

    On the other hand, since it's in the medical/health arena, I'd second the recommendation for a disclaimer on each page.

    All the best,

    Michael

    Hi Tim,

    I think it looks great too. You've added the banner to your header too - a nice touch.

    And I agree re adding a medical disclaimer.

    After having my site that uses the same template dropped from Google a few days ago, I would strongly suggest you add the word 'advertisement' or similar under your article headings and above the article text. I'm not sure that this is what got me dropped from Google but it might be - see my site at Harmedia.com to see what I've done since then. Might give you some ideas. But I cant guarantee that I've correctly discerned what the problem was that got me dropped.

    Google also removed this site from their indexes, which is a worse penalty - one you want to avoid if you possibly can.

      Hi Gary, sorry to hear about the lose of your adsense code. Good luck getting the issue resolved with google.

      Thanks for the advice on the disclaimer. Did you write your own or did you have a lawyer write it for you?

      Thanks again,
      Tim

    I did some online research and compiled my disclaimers from what I found.

    There are free sources. I think just search for something like 'free disclaimer statement'. Maybe add the word generator to that search.

    BTW... I'm not saying the original template was at fault. Fact is... I simply dont know what caused my Google troubles.

Can you have a look at it and tell me what I can change or add to the site to bring in more traffic? Also I'm not getting many clicks on my adsense ads, can you tell how I can improve that as well?

    Thank you,

    hi,

    how are you promoting the site?

    Some things you could be doing:

    1. posting articles to ezines and other sites to get traffic and backlinks
    2. social bookmark your pages.
    3. submit your RSS feed to as many sites as possible.
    4. leave comments in related blogs and forums with your URL.

    Are you still adding content to the site?
    Give google a reason to visit your site by regularly updating your content.

    have you tried moving the adsense around?

    maybe try putting the link banner form the bottom of the page up to the top and move the big block so it is integrated with the text.

    you could try moving the skyscraper on the left above the navigation.

    hope something there gives you some ideas to get going with

      Wow I remember you. This thread was started like 15 months ago. Congrats on making the first 100 bucks from Google but that was a long time to do so. Are you concentrating on other strategies in IM?

    Hi Andie, I started using a traffic system a few weeks ago that is getting me more targeted traffic. The niche I'm in fetches about a buck per click so it doesn't take long to reach 100 when you have targeted traffic. My strategy from here on out is to set up niche blogs and have this traffic system post relevant content to it and monetize it through adsense, clickbank and amazon. I also write articles and post them to this traffic system and they submit them to a bunch of other relevant blogs which of course give me a bunch of back links. So far this system seems to work well, I'll keep you updated.

    Hello Tim,
    Well done!
    Excellant site!
    Very good for your first attempt at Adsense website; here is hoping you create many more.
    I always beleive in simplicity as taught by Micro Niche Course (worth for you to read; I have no affiliation etc) and your theme is very good, simple and to the point.
    One minor suggestion,
    Make your links with target='blank' so that your site remains on the screen when someone clicks on any links; I know you do not have any control on Google Adsense Links but others you do.
    This is the worst part of Google Adsense; once clicked, you have lost the browser/reader into oblivion! I hope Google improves on this 'lost' reader in their next re-vamp!

      Juhani, Thank you for the compliment. How is the mortgage niche going for you?
      That is a niche I've been thinking about targeting for a while but it look too competitive for me at this point. I have been setting up article websites and that seem to be doing well for me as far as generating traffic.

    Thanks John, by the way, if anyone here is interested, I found a way to build adsense websites on auto pilot. What I do is set up an article website like this one Article Information Submission Directory I upload a plug-in that gathers unique content and uploads it to my website free. All of the content is pre screened before it is uploaded automatically. You can set the plug-in to upload as many articles as you want per day. I have about 10 being added per day. I added my adsense code and let it do its thing. I check it everyday to make sure things are running smoothly but other then that, it's all automated. I am going to focus on niche article websites from here on out and I'm going to focus on high paying targeted keywords such as cancer, anti aging, etc. It takes a little longer to get content uploaded to your website but it will be worth the wait.

      Yes I know that now. Thanks for your input though, it helps others to learn before they make the same mistake. I have also learned that to long of a domain name is not good either no matter how targeted the keywords are.
