If you have a blog, or are thinking about starting a blog, then you are definitely going to want to read this article. Itís all about how to line your pockets with money thatís just waiting to be made without working much harder than you already are.
No only are blogs the hottest thing on the Ďnet right now, but they are custom-made for Googleís AdSense program. Why? Itís simple. Blogs represent constantly changing and fresh content to Googleís search engine spiders. Feeding fresh content to those little spiders is just like tossing raw meat to a tiger. They just gobble it up. The more pages of your blog that get indexed, the more traffic you get. And the more traffic you get, the more exposure your AdSense ads get. Are you beginning to see where Iím heading here?
Itís not just Google that loves new content, all of the major engines do. In fact, some web-savvy bloggers are testing Google ads on one page and Overture ads on the other. It doesnít take too long to see which ads are doing the best when you have nearly side-by-side comparison statistics to look at. Just donít make the mistake of putting Google and Overture ads on the same page together. While they wonít kill each other like a pair of Siamese fighting fish in the same bowel will, you will be violating both sitesí Terms of Service, and it isnít worth killing the goose (geese) that laid the golden egg.
Itís a snap to set up Google AdSense ads on your blog. Everything you need to know is right inside of the Google control panel. Whatís not so easy is figuring out what ads are going to appear on each page. Since Google targets your key words, and your blog articles could possible wander towards any subject, you never know what youíre going to get.
Well, ďneverĒ is a strong word because there actually IS a way to pre-test your blogís ads before you post your newest edition. Hereís what you do:
ē Write your blog article like you normally would
ē Plug in your AdSense code and then post your newest page to a sub directory thatís not part of your blog.
ē Click refresh a few times until Google wakes up and starts sending ads.
ē If you donít like what you see then fine-tune the article until you see the types of ads that youíre looking for.
With some ads paying as much as $5 per click or more, Iíd certainly spend an extra 30 minutes or so tweaking my blog. Thatís for sure.
If youíre working hard to get your blog in front of visiting eyeballs, then it doesnít make any sense at NOT to be using Google AdSense to draw every penny out of your site thatís possible. OK, thatís the end of the article. Now get busy tweaking your blog and checking your ads. Youíve got money waiting to be made!
