How to Promote Your Adsense Niche Site

Blog and Ping

Create a Blog you can install the blog on your own site or use a free blogger tool like Blogger.com. Update the blog everyday with content specific to your niche and a link back to your niche site. Ping the blog using a free pinging service like pingoat.com. This will update several services about new content at your site. The Search Engines will spider your blog and find your site.

Find other blogs related to your niche. Do a search on blogger.com for blogs related to your site. Leave very relevant comments with a link back to your site. Again people and the search engines will find your site. Do not leave worthless and spam comments on other blogs. Be a benefit to the blog community with good information.

Article Submission

Article submission to article directories is awesome. You can earn very valuable backlinks to your niche site. Ezine authors search articles directories for articles to publish in their ezines. Publish a good article and it could be published to thousands of ezine subscribers for free. Write a solid author bio with a link to your niche site. Websites and Ezine Publishers must publish your bio with the article. You will receive visitors from this effort.

There are specific places to submit articles to for massive visibility like GoArticles.com. You can use an Article Submission Service to mass publish your article on thousands of lists and article directories all over the web saving you time.

Forums

Find forums that allow you to post free ads. Better yet find forums related to your niche website. Answer questions on the forum including your signature line with your web link included. Also ask questions. Forums are not only great for posting your web link but can be great to get ideas on new articles to write.

Search Engine Optimization

Work on your Search Engine Optimization. Learn about on and off page optimization. Learn about keyword density, image alt tags, meta tags and link popularity. Search Engines are going to be a huge asset to driving traffic to your site. With a little effort you can find your niche site in the top 10 keywords.

Start a reciprocal link campaign with other web sites in the same niche. Trade links or simply ask for a link to your site. You can do this for free with a links directory script to manage your links.

Text links

Text links are keyword specific links to your web site posted on other sites. You can pay for these or you can set up trades as well.

AdSense multiple custom channels

It is now possible to assign multiple custom channels to a single ad unit. This feature enables you to track your ad performance with greater flexibility and view more granular information. When generating your ad code, you’ll be able to add up to 5 custom channels to a specific instance of ad code.

What’s the benefit of tracking with more than one custom channel? Well, multiple channels can be very useful when you want to track one ad unit across several different metrics simultaneously. For example, let’s say you run a sports website and you’ve placed a leaderboard at the top and bottom of every page. To track the performance of the ad placement, you’ve created two custom channels — ‘TopLeaderboard’ and ‘BottomLeaderboard’ — and regenerated your ad code appropriately.

But what if you also want to compare your football pages and your baseball pages at the same time? With multiple custom channels, this isn’t a problem. Just create two new custom channels called ‘FootballPages’ and ‘BaseballPages’, and add them to the appropriate ad units. Now your leaderboards will each be tagged with two custom channels that let you know which position they’re in (top or bottom), and the type of page on which they appear (football or baseball).

Advertising To Those With Javascript Turned Off

Just about all of the contextual advertising services and many other types of services use JavaScript to include their ads on your website. This is great because it’s easy to put the code on your website, have ads running and then forget about it. But what about those users who have Javascript turned off?

Well first of all they won’t see anything. Your content that is below it will just move into the space and you won’t get credit for the adview or the chance to have a click or sale from that user. Analysis of my last 1 million unique visitors shows that 7.5% of them have JavaScript turned off.

7.5% of 1 million is 75,000 unique visitors! That’s 75,000 people who would be viewing the site without any ads and without me having a chance to monetize their visit in any way!

So, how can you solve this issue?

Well thankfully browsers have built into them an alternative tag for JavaScript and it’s called the *noscript* tag. This tag has been around forever and is nothing new. It also doesn’t modify existing JavaScript on your page and therefore can be implemented without violating any of the Terms of Service from Google, Yahoo, Chitika or any other services.

So how can you implement this into your page so that something will show where your ads normally do and what can you put there?

You can use any type of affiliate marketing or commission systems out there. The simplest is to place some Amazon books or products in the noscript code. You can see an example of how I did this with some code and some images of a website with Javascript turned on and off (link).

Here’s how you implement it. Using Google AdSense as an example, you place their code that they give you on your website. Then just below that you place a noscript set of tags. Inside those tags you place what you want to appear if the end user doesn’t have it Javascript turned on. I have included some books from Amazon in a simple table, but you can always put text links or other forms of advertising there.

You can include whatever you’d like in place of what appears. It doesn’t need to conform to the same size or width of the Google ad, so if you just want a 120×20 button or some text there that’s fine.

That’s about all there is to it.

How To Monetize A 1,000+ Page Site In 5 min. Without Violating Google’s Adsense Policy

As webmasters, writers and authors we all want to find ways to maximize the profitability of our content. We employ a variety of methods such as Adsense, Yahoo Ads, links to affiliate products of all types but there are a couple of problems. There is the sheer time involved in creating these links and then keeping them updated to the most relevant and profitable products. To avoid a Google penalty you must use text-based affiliate links, as noted previously this can be a monumental task.

Keeping pace with the fast paced changes of the internet can make it time consuming, difficult and expensive to keep all of your content optimized for profits. What’s needed is a breakthrough technology to make it just as easy to keep a website optimized whether you have 10 pages or 10,000 pages of content. Well, the future is here! Michael Fortin and Sylvie Charrier have just recently unveiled what may be the single most important innovation for webmaster since Adsense.

While still in beta stage this new breakthrough is already beginning to turn heads. With just a simple snippet of code installed in the footer of a thousand page website, any group of keywords can be targeted and “automatically” converted to live links to the most profitable affiliate products at Clickbank and Amazon. Also you can target your own or any other product by designating which keywords, again even if there are a thousand instance of those keywords, once from the control panel.

What’s even better is that the program updates the targets regularly and follows the most profitable products without a single edit on your part. If the hottest selling weight loss product at Clickbank is outdistanced by a more relevant and more profitable product, your links will now be directed to the new profit leader. Similarly if a product is eliminated or removed your links never die, they just move the next most profitable one.

Can you imagine the work and expense of going back into thousands of webpages, ezine articles, ebooks and manually changing the links. Please! And can I go back to a typewriter too! Michael and Sylvie’s new software is going to revolutionize the web.

As this is still beta you can expect a few glitches as it is being refined and tweaked. The early birds already there. Remember the day you first heard of his software as one day you may be able to recount to others that you were aware of this before it became really big. I know I though Google’s IPO was sort of high and I would wait to pick it up went it came down.

Currently Clickbank and Amazon are “plugged in” to the system but close on their heels are Commission Junction, Digital River, PayDotCom.com, even eBay. All your content can now be working for you, night and day. The possibilities are mind boggling for a few visionaries legends will be told.

How to Reduce Ad Blindness

When you display an Ad in the same location with the same colors and Ad format, regular visitors tend to ignore them. This is called Ad Blindness.

The tip here is to rotate between four different color palettes for your AdSense Ads.

1. Log in to your account at https://www.google.com/adsense
2. Click the AdSense Setup tab and choose AdSense for content as the product
3. Choose an Ad type and format.
4. In the Colors drop-down box, click “Use multiple palettes”, then select up to 4 color palettes by holding down the Control or Command key
5. Copy-and-paste the AdSense Ad code into web pages

As 4 different color schemes are used randomly on your page, there is a good chance that your visitors will click the Ad thereby increasing your click through rate (CTR) and allowing you earn more with AdSense.
