We all want to receive huge amounts of money from Google Adsense, but without considering some important aspect of the program, it won’t happen. In this post, I will discuss some tips you can use to your website or blog to help increase your maximum earning potential with Google’s Adsense program.
The first thing you should know when planning to integrate Adsense on your website is ad placement. Because your Adsense revenue will depend on how many clicks you get, it is essential to know where the best place to put your Adsense units.
Google recommends using the “heat map” to boost the potential earning of a website.
A web page offers an ideal location for Google ads based on their content. When deciding where to place one of your ads, you should ask yourself these questions:
- What do you look for in a site?
- What do usually do when visiting a page?
- What place is more likely to focus your reader’s attention?
- How can I integrate ads into this area without disturbing the content or the user’s concentration?
- What can I do to keep the page looking clean, uncluttered and inviting?
Some positions are more effective than others. This “heat map” illustrates these ideal placements on a sample page layout. The colors fade from dark orange (best ad placement) to light yellow (worst ad placement). Other elements do not change the ads that appear above the mark to perform better than those below it. The ads that appear near the test content and elements of your page’s navigational links usually provide optimal results because users are more likely to focus on that part of the page.
While this heat map serves as an ad placement guideline, I strongly recommend that you should study your page layout yourself, and ask your friends about what they think of the layout. Observe them how they behave and the data you gather will help you decide where to place your adsense units. Remember that the heat map guide provided by Google is a guide, you should follow your instincts and common sense when placing an ad.
