I recently optimized one of my websites that makes money through Google adsense advertising, and I noticed my clickthrough rate went through the roof.
If you’re getting visitors, and nobody is clicking on your fine ads, then here are the basic things I did which has really helped my clickthrough rate over these past few days.
- I changed my adsense colors to match the same color as my website. Old news, I’d be surprised if you’ve not done this already. This really did wonders, and seriously this is the first thing you’re even supposed to do.
- I removed the 468×60 banner size, and I replaced it with the 336×280 banner size. This is because it’s just so familiar that people always tell easily that it’s an ad, and so avoid it.
- I removed most of my image ads, and totally replaced them with text ads. Don’t ask me why, it just gave me the result I was looking for.
- I also incorporated the blue/purple color scheme for all of my links. That’s because people see this as just a link, visited and active link standard on the web.
I know these are all basic stuffs you may already know, but the truth is that they’ve really helped me over these few days, and I just had to write about it.
If you have any legitimate optimization tip you use, that’s working for you, kindly share by making use of the comment box.
Note: Whatever you do, do not click on your own ads. Write interesting articles and people will read them, and probably click on your ads.
Always make sure you stay updated on the Google adsense policy, to ensure you’re not breaking any of their rules or you could get banned, and your money frozen.
