We all know that making money on the Internet is not as easy as affiliate marketers make it sound. Oh hey just work for 20 minutes a day and you will make like $5000 a month. Seriously? Lying to people who understand how advertising/affiliate programs work on the web is one thing, but lying to people who have a minimum amount of knowledge is just wrong. Adsense haters degrade the service and swear that it’s horrible. The truth is, it’s a perfect start for beginners. Also by optimizing their ads properly, even intermediate bloggers can make decent money.
Having a bigger brother holding your hand is a safer feeling than hustling to find advertisers. Don’t take this the wrong way, private advertising is great. However it’s very time consuming especially when you’re starting out. You have more important things to worry about. Like um I don’t know, writing content? When it comes down to it you obviously need the traffic and that only comes through your own marketing efforts. But some publishers have the traffic and still don’t see the kind of money they expect with the Adsense advertising program.
Do you want to increase your AdSense CTR and revenue? If you said yes, then here are 7 AdSense Tricks that will increase your AdSense income without a fail!
1. Blend your ads with your website

2. Spotlight your ads

One good method is by giving section tag such as Premium Advertisement or something else and giving your ad blocks a good color background. The color should be well-mixed with your website template.
3. Stop putting ads in out-of-reach place

However, it is a mistake if you put your ads in bad places, i.e. on the spots that people will naturally ignore.

4. Don’t separate your ads from your content
Remember that your ads must be a part of your content. Although you place your ads above the fold, people will ignore your ads if they are separated from your content. So, for example, if you place a big leaderboard ad above the fold just before you article title, people will tend to ignore it because it is obviously a banner ad. But, if you place a 300×250 ad inside your content, people will tend to click on it because they unconsciously think that it is part of your content.
