Success With AdSense!
By Billy Davis
Like with anything else in life…
The more you use Google Adsense, the more you’ll learn from your mistakes. But why wait till then – why not learn and benefit from the mistakes of others?…
Here are the top 5 mistakes almost all Adsense publishers make and how you can avoid them:
Mistake #1 – Not playing by the rules
The first major no-no some Adsense publishers unfortunately make is NOT following the guidelines set forth by Google… You can read their “Adsense Policies” right here.
The most important thing here is not to create “artificial clicks” through any means possible. NEVER – I repeat – NEVER click your own links, never ask your friends or relatives to click the links and never, by any means, encourage your visitors to click the links.
Failing to comply with Google’s terms could result in your Adsense account being suspended, or worse, being permanently BANNED! So play by the rules, and you’ll have longer lasting Adsense profits.
Mistake #2 – Improper placement of ads
When it comes to the “placement” of your ads, there is no ‘universal position’ that is guaranteed to increase your Adsense earnings. However, there are certain places that generally are more profitable than others…
For instance, placing ads to the ‘left’ side of your page is logical, because text is generally read from left to right.
This seems to work better because people will finish a sentence and return their eyes to the left position, which means there’s a better chance they’ll spot your ads.
You will also find that you’ll generate more clicks by placing ads at the ‘bottom’ of your content, because as your visitors finish reading your article, there’s a brief moment where they’re looking for something more to do – and your Adsense ads can offer them that something!
Mistake #3 – Choosing bad color palettes
If you want the biggest revenue impact for your ads, then I recommend optimizing your “color palettes”.
A lot of webmasters don’t take the time to do this, but they should. Choosing the right palettes can mean the difference between ads your visitors will notice — and click — and ads they’ll skip right over.
Click here to see what color palettes are the most successful.
Mistake #4 – Not testing what works and making changes as necessary to improve results
As an Adsense publisher, you should be able to answer these two vital questions:
- Where is Adsense earning me the most revenue?
- How can I use this information to earn even more?
By using Adsense “channels”, Google provides you with a precise method of identifying the best ‘ad placement’, ‘color palettes’, and ‘ad formats’ for your sites, so you can make changes as necessary in order to realize your maximum earning potential.
Many publishers have dramatically improved their results and reported increases in revenue by making these simple changes.
If you want to maximize the profits of your Adsense business, I strongly suggest following in their footsteps.
Mistake #5 – Not caring for the goose that lays the golden eggs
Last, but clearly not least, is perhaps the BIGGEST mistake made by the majority of Adsense publishers – NOT building quality sites centered around unique, relevant content!
It doesn’t matter how “cool” your site is, if your visitors AND the search engines don’t like it, you won’t earn any substantial revenue.
Think about it…
First you must get visitors (i.e. please the search engines), then your visitors must WANT to hang around long enough to potentially click your ads!
…And the only way to cater to both, and make SERIOUS money at the same time, is by building quality sites with quality content – not just slapping up a bunch of junk hoping to get a few nibbles.
Follow this recipe and you can’t go wrong.

As a business owner you know it’s important to spend a good chunk of your time planning and growing your business. Much of that time is also spent collecting and reviewing information from various industry experts.
In fact, each particular aspect of internet marketing and entrepreneurship has experts whom we turn to for advice. This expert advice and information is valuable and is used to help you plan and grow your business. And when you find a reputable, successful, credible and easy to understand expert it just makes good sense to learn from them.
Think about your own business and your own collection of expert advice. You probably have specific experts or websites you turn to for:
List building & email marketing
Resell rights & private label right products
Technology & software
Teleseminars and webinars
Marketing blueprints and templates
Trying to keep up with all this content poses a problem, actually it poses several problems.
The first and maybe the biggest problem is that you have to keep track of all of this content. Most of the time this means organizing the PDFs, audio and video files you download into labeled files on your desktop. This of course is bulky and by the time you get around to reading it, the information is outdated. You’ve wasted your time and potentially your money.
If you actually took the time to read all of the content you download from your chosen experts you’d spend weeks just reading and not really getting much else done. While there’s a lot to say for getting an education online, you’re a business person and your time is money.
You need faster, easier access to all of the most recent information.
The Simpler Solution Is a Membership Site.
A membership site makes it significantly easier to stay on top of the most recent changes, trends, and information in your industry and in the world of internet marketing. Internet marketing changes quickly as technology changes, customers’ needs change and marketing techniques and strategies change.
A membership site beats a static e-book or even a multi-media course, because it is a living entity, which grows as you do. Membership site owners, if it’s a quality site, are always adding fresh material, as better ways and new techniques evolve.
And when it comes to buying resell products, to sell, giveaway and/or promote for affiliate income, it makes much more sense to belong to a membership site where you know the content isn’t being distributed to thousands of people and you know the products are quality products.
So this makes the content overload problem a bit simpler, right?
Now, instead of downloading tons and tons of content to put in the “To read soon” file on your computer, all you have to do is schedule time during your week to visit your membership site and see what’s new. Many membership sites also have an RSS feed and are great about keeping you up to date on all the new information being added to the site.
Or better yet, if you’re planning your business, as you should be on a regular basis, and you’re working on say your product launch plan for the next couple of months, you can simply go to the membership site that focuses on product launching techniques and strategies and use the most recent and up to date information to help you plan.
But there’s still a potential problem.
Too many membership sites can also be overwhelming not just because you have to remember all of your membership sites and log-on information but perhaps more importantly all those membership fees really add up.
It’s like belonging to ten different gyms. One for weight lifting, one for swimming, one for yoga, one for cycling and so on. Sure you’re getting the best of the best information but you’re also spending a ton of cash on all of those memberships.
A Simple Solution
A simple solution has been found. It’s a single entry point that accesses the best of all the membership sites online and groups them into one single membership. The benefits, beyond not having to keep track of all of the membership sites you belong to and their corresponding log-in information is the fact that it’s just plain cost effective.
This simple solution means you can access copywriting experts, product creation experts, access resell rights products, utilize cutting edge software, find blueprints, templates and everything else you need to build a successful internet business all on one membership site.
To learn more about how you can grow your business with this simple solution to expert content overload and how you can access the best membership sites from one single privileged membership, Visit PrivilegedMemberships.com
Honestly, this has become my one and only simple solution and there’s really no reason for me to look elsewhere. **NOTE**: This is an incredibly low price for all this, I was amazed. I mean it was an absolute no brainer…however things are about to change. Just wanted to give you a heads up that the price will be Tripling on February 20th…just thought you should know so you can at least check it out before then!
