Since Google began their global domination and popularity firstly as a competent search engine, they have branched into many various areas that have added millions onto their revenue stream. One popular product is Google AdSense. Basically it’s just adding a code onto your site or blog that are ads which you get paid per click.

AdSense is fast becoming the preferred way for people to earn an income online. Due to its simplicity it does not matter whether you are a work-at-home mom trying to make a little extra cash or an Internet entrepreneur with hundreds of monetized websites, AdSense is truly the easiest way to earn money. I run a freebies site and have earned a nice side income from AdSense. However it isn’t something I can live off and therefore I am trying to increase the income any way possible. However I am so amazed with Google with their ability to have appropriate ads related to freebies, that I believe it’s only a matter of time before the income is something I can boast about.

Whilst it is straight forward to begin, there are still a few tips and advice that can be shown to increase the revenue from these ads. Follow the below advice to explode your revenue:

- Use Google’s own AdSense optimization tips at https://www.google.com/support/adsense/bin/static.py?page=tips.htmland visual heat map to assist you in deciding where on your page to place your AdSense ad code. Google will provide the top optimization tips because they want you to make money! Obviously the more you make, the more they make so it’s in their best interest to help you as best as possible.

- Do not use the traditional horizontal banner style or leaderboard image ads because people are blind to them. Everyone actually automatically switch off when they see big images with a link because they automatically know it’s an ad. It’s actually best to still with text adverts that are targeting and seamlessly integrate with your site’s content.

- Color code your ads to match your web site palette precisely. Don’t use frames around your ads. Instead in the AdSense code generation interface, make sure you choose the same color as your page background for the ad frame and the ad background. Near enough is NOT good enough. If you can’t quite get the color matching right, use Google’s built in color palette together with the RGB to HEX. This hint just follows on the above. If the ads are too out of place and don’t even appear to belong there, you are only doing yourself a disservice and in fact people won’t click on any of your ads.

- Change your site’s content constantly and regularly. By doing this, Google’s targeting advertisements will automatically change to match your site’s content. Again if people keep seeing the same ads, then they won’t click on them regardless of how integrated the ads are on your site.

Hopefully by employing these tips will help you on your way to increasing revenue from AdSense.
