A great way to monetize your website is through Adsense. Most people struggle with Adsense but some enjoy hundreds of dollars a day from Adsense ads on their websites. What makes these webmasters different from the other kind?
THEY THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX!
THEY THINK LIKE THEIR VISITORS!
Use these tips and most importantly always keep testing.
I'm sharing some tactics that have worked best for me and a few of my friends.
1. Use links on the right hand side of the page because psychologically speaking, many people will click on them provided they blend into the page because most people are right handed and it's easier to click on something closer.
2. Create a custom palette for your ads. Choose a color that will go well with the background of your site. If your site has a white background, try to use white as the color of your ad border and background. The idea is to make the Adsense look like it's part of the web pages. Again, This will result to more clicks from people visiting your site.
3. Remove the Adsense from the bottom pages of your site and put them at the top. Do not try to hide your Adsense. Put them in the place where people can see them quickly. You will be amazed how the difference between Adsense locations can make when you see your earnings.
4. If you use YouTube videos on your website, please add some Adsense at the top of the video and use the color "blue". This works really well.
5. One format that worked well for the majority is the Large Rectangle (336X280). This format has the tendency to result in higher CTR. Why choose this format out of the many you can use? These ads look like normal web links, and people, being used to clicking on them, click these types of links. They may or may not know they are clicking on your Adsense but as long as there are clicks, then it will all be for your advantage.
These tips are useful as long as you take action. Remember, always know who your target audience is. Try to step into their shoes and build your websites accordingly.
These are some of the tips that have worked well for me & some who continously generate a 5 figure income from Adsense. It is important to know though that ads are displayed because it fits the interest of the people viewing them. So focusing on a specific topic should be your primary purpose because the Ads displayed will be specially targeted to a topic that your visitor are interested in.
