Sometimes You Can Get The Strangest Kind Of Results With Adsense!

I was looking at my Adsense numbers today and noticed that I got paid 1 cent for 8 clicks???????? That kind of seems unusual!

Also too my earnings seem to be down for the past few days. I'm kind of guessing that it has something to do with the holiday weekend.

But we still have a few more days to go before the month ends so I'm working to get my adsense earning numbers up.

Has Your Adsense Account Been Disabled?

If your adsense account has been disabled and you want to do something about it you can appeal it.  Adsense has provided a link where you can fill out a form to appeal your adsense account if it has become disabled.

In the past I have seen posts from those who have managed to successfully get their adsense account back but there are more that have posted that they have tried and couldn't get their adsense account back.

But you have to try - especially if you want to get your adsense account back!

How Many Times A Day Do You Check Your Adsense Earnings?

How many times a day do you check your adsense earnings? I must confess that I check mine at least three times a day! - LOL!

I think checking it at least once a day is perhaps more normal - but I never said that I was a normal sort of person - LOL!

I think it has to do with the fact that I still find it so amazing to be earning money this way that I keep checking just to see how much I have earned during the day - especially during the weekends when Adsense earnings tend to be much lower - depending on the content of one's site.

Also as an Adsense Consultant, I'm also checking to see if any of my adsense earnings follow any kinds of trends in the hopes of finding out ways to increase my adsense earnings.

It is really hard to pinpoint any kind of Adsense trend though because Adsense earnings depend on so many things - but I keep trying (and I keep checking my Adsense numbers more than just a few times a day!)

"How can I generate money on my website from advertisers?"

"How can I generate money on my website from advertisers?
I am starting a website that provides a free service to people. I have heard that you can generate revenue from advertisers and click through? How do I do this and where do I go to get started. Furthermore, How much money on the average can this generate? Are there averages for $ per traffic? Like for every 1000 people you can gererate $1.00???? Because I have no idea---Thank you in advance for your answers -- Sorry for the dumb question.

A lot of people use Google's Adsense program. You register to apply and submite your site's url so that they can review and approve it. Once your site has been approved then you can go through the steps of adding the codes to your website. That process involves you picing the size and color of your ads. You are not able to pick the specific ads because they will be determined by the content on your site.

When people click on the ads that appear on your site (or blog) you earn money. In the case of adsense you have to earn at least $100 during the month in order to get paid the next month. If you don't make $100 during the month then your earnings will be rolled over into the next month until you reach $100. Then you can get paid either by regular check or by bank transfer.

Now as far as how much money you actually earn - it will depend. Since adsense "crawls" your site for content the advertisers/ads that your site will attract will depend on the content of your site. So (in theory) you want your site to attract high-paying ads/advertisers. The more high-paying - the more money you will earn!

Here is a link to a blog post about how much people have been making with adsense:

"What Are High Paying Keywords?"

"What are high paying keywords, their prices, and how do you implement them in your site?"

The high-paying keywords change all the time. I most recently read that keywords about class-action suits are popular now.

But a lot of higher-paying keywords have to do with things of a financial nature.

What is really surprising is that you never know what keyword will generate a high-paying advertiser. I remember getting a cpm rate of over $1000! and this was for one of my client's more mundane sites!

You can find lists of "high-paying keywords" all over the internet but be forewarned that what was considered high-paying a few days or weeks ago may not "fetch" the same high-paying price now.

It changes - oh so much!

My Click-Through Rates Are Really, Really Low!

This is something that I'm not too ashamed to admit because it seems to be happening to a lot of other Adsense publishers as well!

My click-through rate used to average at least 10% and 10% was actually my click-through rate goal. But starting as far back as of the last few months of 2009 my click through rates have decreased a lot!

It is something that I am really going to have to work on so that I can get back to my click through rate goal of at least 10%. Individually my CTR rate averages about 10% or sometimes even higher but when you add all of my Adsense sites together my CTR rate is quite low.

On the bright side this does give me the opportunity to work on some ideas that I have so that I can increase my CTR rate. But I do think that a lot of this has to do with the way that the adsense ads appear on my sites! I really can't understand what kind of change could have occurred within the last few months to make the CTR rates go down so much????

"Why Is My Adsense Just Cents Per Day....."

I've been making unique content and seo...But yet, my adsense is just cents per day...

It doesn't matter how "unique" your content is - if it is not one of the high-paying keywords that bring in higher earnings per click you are still going to earn low Adsense earnings - no matter how unique your content is.

You can take a look at my current Adsense Consultant blog where I blog about high-paying kewords and where I am also selling a high-paying keywords list. Some of these higher-paying keywords pay as much as $50 per click!

I still on the hunt though for those keywords that pay $100 per click!

My Current Search Engine Rankings!

Since I am also an SEO Consultant I decided to take a look at my search engine rankings for today.

As you can see from the screenshot above BOTH of my Adsense Consultant blogs are not only on the first page of the google search engine, they are #1 and #3 in search engine results for the term "adsense consultant!

High search engine rankings are very important, especially when you have Google adsense ads on your site because the higher your site ranks then that means the more traffic that you will get!

As you can see from the screenshot above, over 1 Million hits are listed on the search engine for the term adsense consultant. And I can tell you that from one of my own reports that a lot of people are typing in the term adsense consultant. So my two adsense consultant blogs are in a very good ranking position!

Do you need to provide a social security number to be paid by google adsense?

yes you have to provide your SS#. You see as an individual your SS# is your tax id number and google adsense needs that. Why? Because if Adsense pays you more that $400 they have to report it to the IRS!
