1st Strategy – Exit Page Technique
The first strategy is particularly useful when you have a page that has high volume of exit counts. A highly effective example is an Adsense advertisement being placed below an online tool that checks the PageRank.

The above figure shows an online tool that returns the number of backlinks when user enters a URL of a web page. The Adsense codes are placed directly under the tool. This has increased my revenue since this page has a high amount of traffic exit based on my web logs.

Why This Strategy Works? The reason why this works is because people will start to get bored when visiting your site and they are always on a look out on other interesting resources. Therefore, by studying the top exit pages of your site, you can place your Adsense codes in those pages and convert the exit traffic (since they are exiting anyway). How To Apply This Strategy?

You should start by looking into your web logs (in Cpanel -> AwStats) and pick up the top ten exit pages. After you have these top exit pages, look into each of these pages and experience different placement of Adsense. To help you understand how your traffic exit your page, you can try out CrazyEgg. This powerful tool gives you an overview of where are your traffic clicking and this has helped me greatly in retaining and converting those exit traffic.

2nd Strategy – GNavigate
The second strategy focuses on the usage of a particular Adsense advertisement format, the Horizontal Link Unit. This technique makes the Google ads appear like your internal navigation menu, thus in the name, Gnavigate. This is the strategy that brings me the most revenue among all other formats. Take a look at the following example:

The above is a modified screen shot from one of my site that captures a significant amount of clicks from the traffic using the GNavigate strategy. Notice that I am using the same colors of link as my internal links – blue.

The Secrets of Adsense 2008

Why This Strategy Works? This strategy works with most Internet users because they tend to think that the site navigation is located near the top banner of the site itself. Hence, if you make the Adsense ads appears like your internal navigation menu (in terms of colors as well), your visitors will click the top horizontal links looking for more information.

How To Apply This Strategy? To optimize this strategy , you must not have another top navigation on top or below the Adsense GNavigate ad. I normally place the internal navigation menu on the right or left of the site. You should also avoid placing images directly on top or below the Adsense GNavigate ad as this will decrease your CTR. People eyes are on the images most of the time and hence, giving less attention to your links if they are placed very near these images. The last important factor to consider before applying this strategy is to give a small margin (around 5 pixels each) between the top and below element of the Adsense GNavigate. This will ease the eye movement of your visitors. You can find a number of well optimized templates to employ GNavigate strategy for maximum Adsense earnings in Andreas site.

3rd Strategy – Graceful Direct The third strategy that I want to share with you is what I called the Graceful Direct. There are a lot of informational sites that can utilize this powerful strategy. This strategy works by placing Adsense after an article or near the end of a page with the hypnosis header, 'More related information in this site'. An example is shown,

Why This Strategy Works? Internet users will scan through your article or any page in your site most of the time and will either click your navigation links or go to other sites. By using Graceful Direct, you announce that there are more related information around and the next thing your visitors will see is a set of links that looks like a normal internal navigation. Now, there are two scenarios here. After reading the article and seeing the hypnotic headline, your visitors will look for more information within your site (which is good as it retains your traffic) or simply clicks on the Adsense links as there are relevant keywords that are interested to them (good for you as it generates you revenue).

How To Apply This Strategy? I have to stress that this method does not work in all types of sites especially those that with little content. For this strategy to work, you must have a good amount of words in that single page (around 400 to 800 words). You can further optimize this strategy by increasing the font size of the hypnotic headline, 'More related information in this site'. Make sure you bold the keywords, 'related information'.

4th Strategy – Heaven Gifts The last strategy that I want to share with you is known as the Heaven Gifts. There are more and more visitors using tabbed browsing (open several tabs in a same browser) nowadays. This particular strategy works by placing your Adsense ads close to the top margin of the page. This will attract accidental clicks on your Adsense ads while your visitors are trying to click on the tabs. The following shows an example,

Browser tabs

The Secrets of Adsense 2008

Why This Strategy Works? I would say that there are over 50% of the Internet users are using tabbed browsing when visiting the websites at the time of writing this eBook. They are constantly clicking back and forth with the tabs in their browsers especially when they are researching. The more they click on the tabs, the higher the chance for them to mis-click on your Adsense ads. The CTR here is not particularly high as compared to other strategies as mentioned above but if you are targeting a profitable niche, this would add up to a significant amount especially if you have a decent traffic.

How To Apply This Strategy? You can simply place a block of Adsense ads on the very top of your web page for a month and see if it works for your site. Keep in mind that your first priority here is to minimize the gap between your Adsense ads and the top tabs.

High Paying Adsense Keywords I have attached several copies of high paying Adsense keywords in .CSV format (easily opened with Microsoft office or OpenOffice) relating to hot niches such as Health, Insurance, Online Games and Make Money Online. They can be found in the 'Adsense High Paying Keywords' folder together with this eBook. In these high value keyword list, they are sorted by Adwords CPC, which is the range that the current advertisers are paying.

Adsense Secrets Checklist There are a lot of elements why using the correct strategies did not work out sometimes. The following advice will help you to re-prioritize your current list and work them out successfully towards the first milestone – USD $100 per month.

Traffic – the most important element Everything starts from traffic. If you only have around 1000 page views per month, it is nearly impossible for you to make a living based on your Adsense income. Start to build up your traffic by optimizing your website for your targeted keywords. You should also try writing articles and submit them to directories for backlinks. Refer to this forum post how you can build some good links.

Adsense Best Friend – Search Engine Not every type of traffic helps in contributing to your Adsense revenue. For example, regular visitors seldom click on the Adsense ads. This is precisely why most blogs do not earn much from Adsense especially if they do not have much traffic from the Search Engines. The best type of traffic for Adsense performance is from the Search Engines. Therefore, it makes perfect sense to optimize your website for the Search Engines such as Google and Yahoo. There are a lot of stuff to learn if you are new and if you want to really make a living in the Internet, you should get yourself a copy of SEOBook which I have talked about it in my blog.

Relevancy rules After you have enough traffic from the search engines, the next thing you should check is the relevancy of your Adsense ads. Is Google showing the relevant ads in your site? Although Google is currently the best platform for the online advertisers, there are still occasions that your site will not show relevant ads to attract the visitors to click. If this is the case, you can increase the content of that page or optimize the entire page by placing keywords in significant areas like the title, headers tag and have them bold as well.

Adsense format matters The last important thing you should consider is the format of the Adsense ads on your site. There are several basic guidelines that you should follow for maximum CTR: 1. Do not use borders. 2. Use the same color for the links as you are using for the entire site. 3. Do not flood your page with Adsense ads above the fold (I find that 2 - 3 units per page work best). 4. Blending is the key. Try to place the Adsense ads close to your original content and make it looks natural.
