Tactics to Increase Your AdSense Earnings Overnight

Posted By Darren Rowse 9th of May 2008 Adsense 29

increase-adsense-earnings.jpgWhat would you say if I told you that there are things that many bloggers could do on their blogs that could bring about large increases in their AdSense earnings in 24 hours or less?

One of the misconceptions about making money from blogging that is out there is that the best way to increase your blog’s earnings is to increase the traffic to your blog.

“Double your traffic and you’ll double your income” I heard one speaker say at a conference earlier in the year.

Well that speaker is right…. increased traffic generally does lead to increased advertising income…. but doubling your traffic can be a massive task one that could take months or even years to achieve.

Growing readership is something every entrepreneurial blogger needs to be working on as it does help with income levels but…

What if there’s a faster way to grow your AdSense earnings?

Over the next week I want to look at a few methods of increasing the revenue from AdSense on your blog that can have immediate impact upon earnings.

Before We Begin:

I should say before I go any further that these won’t work on every blog – if you’ve already optimized your blog well they’ll have less impact – but if you have a blog like I did a few years ago you could see some significant improvements. These tips will be more basic for some readers than others – so if you consider yourself to be at an advanced level you might want to just scan over the posts (although a refresher can’t hurt).

I also should say that these principles don’t just apply to Adsense. The same can be said about Chitika, ShoppingAds, WidgetBucks, Shopzilla and other ad networks.

Lastly – I want to say that I’m not usually one to use claims like ‘increase your earnings overnight’ – as we all know, blogging for money is a long term thing. However these lessons did have immediate impact upon my own earnings. I had already been blogging for some time – but together what I share increased my own earnings by over 100% very quickly.

The Series So Far

  1. Looking forward to read what u have to say Darren. Don’t think anyone would mind earning a bit extra.

  2. I have been waiting for something like this. I just started putting ads on my site and was wondering what the optimal locations are.

  3. Darren, I am eagerly awaiting your next post in this series. I also recently bought Joel’s book but unfortunately it hasn’t shown expected results till now.

  4. Hmmm, well that sounds great Darren. I can’t wait to read the first installment of the series.

    I’ll look forward to it..

  5. Thanks Darren, I just started to monetize some of my sites with Adsense so I’m looking forward to the posts :-)

  6. The wedge of anticipation…nice closer

  7. Ok you have my attention.

  8. Great, I can’t wait for you to start.
    Actually I disabled adsense on my blog for now, because it doesn’t make my blog look much nicer and I don’t have such a huge amount of readers that it would make a lot of difference.

  9. Looking forward to this. Hopefully it will be a mere checklist for me.

  10. Are you going to write about Part I today? :) Cant wait to see.

  11. You’re killing me here man. Nice tactic!!

  12. Economic symmetry no doubt.

  13. Looking forward to this Darren. I’ve just started earning a decent amount with Adsense, so I’d really like to hear this!

  14. Nice post!
    I prefer between messages because my blog is full of fresh content.

  15. i have just started a shopping blog website and i have a few ads but waiting for next part all info would be gratefully recieved

  16. Oh man. This is going to be interesting considering I’m an AdSense fan

  17. “Double your traffic and you’ll double your income?” I don’t think so.

    In many cases, it’s “double your traffic and triple your income.” Sometimes even quadruple your income.

    And I just read the first installment of the series. Changing AdSense locations on my blog doubled earnings overnight (that and using the Who Sees Ads Plugin). Great series. :)

  18. Looking forward to the whole series. I have been booted from adsense for illegal clicks but you can apply this to any advertising which will be great.
    Lookinf forward to it helping my financial blog a lot

  19. Thanks Darren can’t wait for part 1, optimizing your ads definitely can increase your earnings if you don’t already have them optimized to their best potential, hope these posts shed a lot of light on the subject. Highly appreciated.

  20. Thanks for this idea. This series will help one and all and really let us take a look at optimizing the blog. Great post as always and cannot wait for part 1.

  21. When should we expect part 1?

  22. I too am looking forward to reading more!

    I have looked into ad optimisation before, but yet I seem to ignore it when I am placing ads on my blogs (what is that all about?) lol

  23. You have sure set the stage. You have our attention. We’re waiting with eager anticipation.
