  2. Darren,

    Thanks for sharing this video. I’ve just started using adsense on a blog of mine (LINK) and I’m sort of ignorant about what to do. Thanks for the video, I’m sure the info will help.

    Also, the video would not play in your RSS feed, so I had to come to your site. I guess it’s a win-win: you get a visitor and I get to watch the video.

    :)

  5. Tom Lee says:

    hey Darren, Its nice. I also posted about it in my blog.

  7. Thanks for providing such a usefull optimization Adsense Tips. Its very good.

  8. that’s nice startup video!

  9. That’s worth it right there just for the one minute he talks about making sure your highest paying ads are first in the HTML code. My sidebar is the best for clicks, so now I have to figure out how to put that first in the HTML before my header, which also does pretty well (but not as good as the sidebar!)

    I guess using absolute pixel values… does anyone have any experience with this? I’m pretty competent with code, but have NO idea what is the best way to accomplish this.

    Adsense….argh!!! The shut me down after 5 weeks. One of my friends and family was trying to be supportive and clicked on my ads. ALOT I think!!!

    Google didn’t even give me a warning. They just shot me between the eyes and left me to die in the street! I appealed (begged) but to no avail.

    Any suggestions?

    That’s Darren,
    Great video,

    Indeed, a definitive guide to getting a basic Adsense unit set up in your pages. I am optimizing my adsense unit for very long time now, and believe that the background color of the web page and ad widget should be the same. Also, the text ads perform better than image ads. Also, you get the best choice.

    Darren, you have a referral button at the very bottom of your page, I would like to know how well it performs for you.

    Please check out my site, and the ad units placement and comment, how effective they can be.

  14. Good basic guide to Adsense.I also purchased Joel Comm´s adsense guide that has a lot of more advanced tips.I found it useful.
