How to Increase AdSense Earnings

2 Dec

how to make money onlineNovember has come and gone. AdSense earnings have increased yet again! Part of this is likely due to the coming Christmas holiday as my AdSense earnings really jumped around Black Friday and have continued to stay unusually high since. It’s not the 300% increase I saw last month but I’ll take a 25% increase any time.

Here’s the latest video of my earnings. I continue to try and post to motivate others who may be starting out and have any doubt about AdSense. As always, I have blurred out the statistics to remain in compliance with AdSense TOS policies. I like to provide video since a screen shot can be easily faked by anyone.

For a quick lesson on how I’m achieving results I’ll sum it up with the following:

Focus on one website with one topic that you find of interest. Find subjects that are all interesting to you and that you will enjoy writing about.

Focus on word density but don’t get sucked into the world of “no value spinning” that some online marketers will recommend.

Remember, Google wants you to provide value to websites that it indexes and there have been many cases of AdSense sites being de-indexed (no links) for creating hundreds of same template sites that have keyword density but provide no value.

Find a theme you love (assuming the use of WordPress) and take some extra time to dress it up nicely! Work overtime on the graphics, font and layout.

The creation process should be fun!

I still don’t have PhotoShop loaded for graphics. I use pixlr online for all of my image editing. It’s a completely free online image creator/editor that mimics the setup of PhotoShop and works quite well.

Do keyword research for all the new posts you create and understand the iimportance of keyword strategy (I’ll detail this much more in my download).

That said, don’t just create posts for keywords. Bring value to your visitors. You can easily do both; find keywords with high value and create posts with these keywords that your visitors will enjoy reading and want to engage in.

Google will love you, your visitors will love you and you will love your AdSense earnings.

Forget article submission. It’s boring and doesn’t work like it used to.

The best way to get traffic? Guest posting. Get over the fear of guest posting because nothing else will bring visitors to your site quite like guest posting will.

It’s here where I often have to encourage others most and it’s what separates those who make money from those who just dream about it. Persistence means everything. It’s work to achieve AdSense income and like anything in life, the more you do this, the easier it becomes.

Submit posts often and work hard on them!

This will separate you from the pack. Don’t just throw content on your blog as random thoughts pop in your head. Approach writing as if you were in a creative writing class at school. Engage your readers and proof-read your work.

I have two kids and I spend every day preparing meals, giving baths, driving kids around, cleaning house and stopping my kids from constantly trying to beat each other up! With two toddlers running around, I simply can’t spend all day on the comuter.

I only play on the computer during the day. I login to Facebook, check my email and that’s about it! I don’t begin my “work” until the kids are in bed for the night. I work from about ten until midnight (sometimes 1). The point is, this is money earned! It’s definitely a part time job but it is well worth it as I set my own hours, get to watch TV while I work and I very much enjoy the whole process of AdSense income.

If you want to make it with AdSense, it’s just a matter of moving forward and being intent on making it work. Anyone can do it. If you can make $1 a day with AdSense (which I recommend you make your initial goal), you have a working system and you can then make as much as you want. I will continue to sing praises to Google for giving the masses such a wonderful option to work from home and make steady income.

Do it right, keep Google on your good side and you’ll reap the benefits!

    Hi Amy,

    I found your blog from Warriorforum and after checking a few posts, I can say that I really liked your writing style.

    I am currently working on two Adsense sites, trying to add more content and drive more traffic. My first goal is to get each website to $5/day level. If I can do that, while I keep growing those sites I will create another site.

    Thanks for sharing your story and keep the good work going.

    About your blog: a brighter background and darker font color could make it easier to read, just my opinion.

    Hi Nail. Thanks very much for stopping by and taking the time to comment!
    Great job on your goal. You have the exact same mindset that I’ve had from the start. I keep making small p/ day goals and I really focus on making that happen. I have great luck with this method. I hope you’re using article submission to help drive traffic? That works very well for my sites.
    Your site looks to be doing very well. Your Alexa rank is very high so you must be getting some good traffic!
    And finally.. Yes, I’ve been considering going with a more standard look. Honestly, I’m torn! I love “throw-back colors”.. thus the current color scheme. Smile
    Thanks for your input! I always appreciate constructive criticism and will definitely take it into consideration.

    Hi Ron. Thanks so much for the comment. I am with you all the way! I think the only way to achieve big paydays online is to keep focusing on that goal. I stopped by and visited your blog as well. Keep up the great content. You’re working hard! Have a great holiday season!

    Hi Amy,

    Found your blog on warrior and got interested in it. Sure enough was the best reading. Your blog is very informative and inspiring. I have 2 1/2 son and exactly know how it feels when you try to do the stuff, so it all comes down to doing at night when he sleeps, as you can see the time of this comment!Smile

    Thanks for not holding the information and sharing with rest of us.

    Hi Amy,
    Great article. Good that you’re back. I have been running my blog for quite a while now and seem to have hit a bit of ceiling when it comes to earnings. Do you have any ideas on what I should be doing, what has been most effective for you as far as getting traffic?
