Avoid adSense "Smart Pricing"

5:49 AM

AdSense smart pricing is something that You probably hear about. It is off course "unofficial" like any other stuffs related to google, but since a ot of people noticed this, we will threat adsense smart pricing as fact and here we will how to avoid or remove smart pricing.



So what is adsense smart pricing ?

Imagine that You have (and maybe you really have) 5 blogs or sites (ok let say just blogs) and adsense on those blogs. Every of those 5 sites i related to different niche market keywords etc. Every of those 5 blogs, makes you aprox $100 monthly, what means that You have approximately $500 montly from your 5 blogs on different keywords and niche markets. At one moment you release that You earnings dropped from $500 to $300 monthly and You are not understanding what happens:  you have same traffic (actulay it may be that your traffic is increased) You have same maybe better number of visitors, you have same number of click, but earnings dropped and there is no chance to raise them. Those are classically symptoms of "been adsense smart priced."



Why this happend ? 

 Well there are few theories why adsense smart pricing beome active for your account, but from my expirience, it is from one simple reason: google think that You have some junk content which he threat  as MFA (made for adsense) content, and because of that google want to protect their advertisers, giving "smart pricing" attribute to whole account. Problem is when one of your sites is smart priced, your whole account is smart priced, so if just one of your 4 blogs have bed/copyrighted content, click from rest 4 will be much "cheaper" for advertisers and of course you will receive less money from every click from any of your 5 blogs.



Solution for adSense smart pricing:

If you think that you are smart priced, first done some analysis: compare adsense earnings, CPC and CPM for period before and after been smart priced, if difference is dramatical (more than 50%) then you are probably been smart priced. Find critical blog (with bad, copyrighted, crappy, spamming content) and remove adSense from that blog.If you find right blog that makes problem to rest of your 4 blogs, than very fast, in next few days You will see that You adSense earning coming back. In that time period check every single post and every single word on blog that made this smart pricing problem to you, and fix that with right content. If You can't find anything suspicious than is better to burn that blog or at least change advertiser  company yo chitaka, adBrite or whenever you want, or in other words keep adSense from it. In the other hand If You find problem, and fix it, then feel free to back adSense on blog, and watch carefully what happens with your online adSense incomes in next week. If you get back your old earnings that You are successfully stepped out from adSense pricing problem.
If you have any more specifically questions about this, which I usualy like to call adSense consequence,  please feel free to contact me, and I will try to help you with this problem since I had it and researched a lot about this subject.

Seven Ways to Increase Your Blog or site AdSense earnings

1:54 PM

There is a lot of strategies how to improve earnings on Your adSense blog, here are seven simple ways, of course in some of next posts we will discuss in details, for now just some fact on increasing your adSense money, so think about it!

1) Localize Your AdSense – Keep your AdSense just on your individual post pages. That is where there will be the highest concentration of information that relates to a specific topic (if you follow the rest of this post). Or, find the posts that have really hit a nerve on Google, and load some AdSense into just those few posts. Set up AdSense Channels for those posts, and experiment with different colors, if willing.



2) Use Section Targeting – “Blogging Tips.” “Start Your Own Blog.” sick of seeing ads like this on your blog? It’s probably because you have a blogroll or other blog-related things on your – blog. By inserting AdSense Section Targeting, you can target regions for AdSense to take into account, and for AdSense to ignore, when choosing what ads it serves up. You’ll start having more relevant ads on your pages.




3) Don’t Get Slashdotted (or Digged, if You Will) – It may be exhilarating to see that your latest post getting tons of traffic from a very popular site, and you may think that will bring you ad revenue, but the fact is, you’ll be paying a ton on bandwidth overage and those users aren’t going to be clicking on your ads.



4) With That in Mind, DO Get Googled – Slashdot user path: visit Slashdotted post, leave flaming comment, leave, visit next Slashdotted link. Google user path: search for something, click on your site, read useful information, see enticing ad relating to that information, click on ad.



5) Pick Your Topics Wisely – Forget about finding a niche topic for your blog. When going for AdSense revenue, user loyalty is overrated (so much for not being a sellout). You don’t want users in browse mode, you want users in search mode. Find a niche topic for this post, because that’s what is going to bring in people who are looking for something in particular, whether it’s a product that fulfills a niche need, a frightening yet poorly-documented medical affliction, or strange bugs killing their plant.




6) Write Good Posts – Before writing a post, think about what that post is about, then ask yourself what someone searching for that information might Google. Try searching for that string. If there is too much competition, you may want to target a slightly less popular keyphrase. You may even want to try the Overture Keyword Tool if you need suggestions. If there is still too much competition, reconsider your post. Do you really have anything new to say about this topic?



7) Blog Like No One is Reading – All of the above sound great in theory, but who really knows what will strike the balance between high-search rate and low competition? Blog about things in your life – things that you know – using descriptive keywords, then see what gets the Google traffic. Learn. Repeat.


As I said, I hope that this short advices will help you incresing your adSense money, if this is not in your "taste" we maybe You find something for you in my next post, in some other adsense money increasing post.
