Using AdSense

I just spent an hour or so looking for websites which featured good information about monetizing your blog or website with AdSense.

What I wanted was a website which gives honest advice on how to increase your AdSense income. For instance, suggestions on ad placement, colors, ad types which increase CTR, Google advice, that sort of thing.

First, most of the websites were.. discouraging. That is a nice way to put it.

Here is the layout of the typical AdSense advice site.

Free website or blog hosting platform like Blogger. No problem there, Need Money Blog is hosted on Blogger.

Numerous AdSense blocks.

Two blog entries or articles in history.

Recently created site or not updated in several months.

Articles are scraped from AdSense FAQ or from other website.

A few other banner ads or affiliate links (most to Joel Comm's AdSense Secrets - sorry Joel, but it's true!).


Nothing new or different.

That stinks if you are new to moneitizing your website or blog. You are searching for real information and can only find junk.

If this sounds like you, here is a gem of a site I read regularly.

Nope, no referrals or affiliate money on this link! Just good information you can use.

Make Easy Money with Google - Eric runs a very good site with real information on using AdSense on your blog or website.
I read it every day and it is fun to watch and learn from his tests and experiments with AdSense.

Yes, Eric occasionally sells an ebook, but he has written a few himself and they are quite good.

I suggest you take a look at his site and see what sort of good information you can glean.

Keep in clicking those links!

If you are an intermediate user and don't mind creating your own web site (rather than a free blogger site)- then I (humbly:-) suggest that my make money from photos blog is worth looking at..

Jordan, Thank you for your comment. Your site is hosted on a free site as well, blogspot.com. Could you give me a little more information about what your site is about?
