Google AdSense has quickly become one of the most popular methods of website monetization amongst webmasters and Internet marketers. It is its ease of use and implementation that makes Google’s advertising platform so popular.
To really make money through this program it is imperative that you understand Google’s rules. While it is okay to try new things when you work with companies like Google but you need to make sure that you stay within the restrictions put in place by the company. If you go outside of the boundaries you put your AdSense account at risk. The following examples are things that you should not ever do. For example, if you’re targeting a niche like Steve Clayton then creating mini sites about that topic will help you dominate it.
One of the most common mistakes people make with Google AdSense is launching another and new webpage when your ad is being clicked. This means that your AdSense as should open on the same page. That’s correct; you aren’t allowed to have more than one landing page for your ads.
This is a rule because Google doesn’t want to offer advertisers a bad return on their investment by letting users send people away from the ads they run. This means that you need to help Google give the best service possible to advertisers by not doing anything that could affect the quality of the ads on your site. It is also strictly against Google’s TOS to alter their Adsense code that you put on your sites. You’ll have options that will allow you to customize the look of your ads. Google explains how to customize your code, but never change the code once you get it. There is only so much the code can do, and if you change it they’ll know something’s up. As stated, but we’ll say it again, you’ll be banned from Adsense; plus the code will more than likely stop working. Actually, there are not a lot of rules for Adsense, but the ones they do have must be obeyed; if you do that, then you’ll be just fine. For instance, if you would rather create an authority site about say, Tim Godfrey, it would have a better stick rate.
Of course Google doesn’t want competition, and at least they can enforce that if you’re using Adsense. It’s really just all about competition and nothing more. You also are prohibited from emulating their ad block structure in any way that is obviously to your benefit. You can put other types of ads on your page, it’s just that they can’t look like Adsense ads. Doing that isn’t all that hard at all, and any hassles can be neutralized if you’re making money with Adsense. If you want to use other contextual ads, then if you’re in doubt just ask Google if it’s a problem. Google Adsense is a long-term strategy that does work, but your success with Google lies with following their terms of service.
