The Basic Business Premise That Everyone Forgets

Skim through any webmaster forum with a discussion on maximizing your profits through AdSense and you’ll see a common theme – where can I get it for free?

Put the profits back into the business.

Let’s go back to the top three ways to increase your AdSense profits and see how you can use your AdSense money to bring in more AdSense money.

  1. Target higher paying keywords.

    Google doesn’t make it easy to find out how much you’re making on specific keywords. In order to figure that out, you’ll need to be watching your own analytics and running cross checks. Which ads are getting clicked on your pages? What keywords are pulling in those ads? What differences do you see when you fine tune your content?

    Invest in a good ad tracker to help you keep a handle on which ads are doing well from your site – and then optimize your site for the keywords that pull those ads in. Since Google allows you to use AdSense on multiple sites, use what you learn to develop other sites that capitalize on those higher paying words.

  2. Increase the click through rate.

    One way to increase the click through rate is to work on delivering the right traffic to your site. This may mean investing in a little advertising of your own. Research your site analytics to follow site visitors from the referring link all the way through where they leave your site and watch for trends, then target your own advertising to capitalize on those trends by placing ads on sites that send you traffic that clicks through.

  3. Increase your site traffic.

    Obviously, the more people that visit your pages, the more chance there is that some of them will click through on some of the AdSense ads on your pages. You can buy traffic – but that’s seldom the best solution. Instead, invest in a strategic combination of advertising your site on relevant sites and providing excellent content to keep visitors coming back to your site.
