By Ashutosh Jha → Last Updated on Sunday, April 8, 2018
For many bloggers, Google AdSense is the main source of income. But still I have heard a lot that even they are getting 1K+ visitors daily, they hardly manage to earn only a few dollars (in the range of $5-10) per month. This is not fair..right?

Also, you may have seen many bloggers who are making thousands of dollars from AdSense itself. There must be something that they are following and you don’t. You have really worked hard to get a good traffic for your content then why not try some few hours’ of work to get the best out of it. Overall we are trying to earn from the work/product which we have done :)

There are few basic things which I want to mention here before going into details like first select a beautiful design and make sure you are not doing any mistakes at the initial level.

At this stage, I am considering that you are having an approved AdSense account and you are using their ads on your blog. If you don't have a fully AdSense approved account check tips to get AdSense approval. So below are few killer tips to get the best from AdSense account and I am sure after implementation you are going to earn best from it.

Responsive and ad-supported design

The very first requirement to earn from any ad is to have a good looking design of your blog and it should support the ads too. If you are having a design in which you can place the ad in the footer of the page, then how can you be sure that your user will go to the footer and will click on your ads? So select only those design which fulfills your blogging requirement and most importantly it should be responsive and should have space to place the ad units. You can read our article to select the best template for your blog here.

Use best keywords for your content

The selections of keywords are very important for the success of any online venture. In my previous article, I discussed the importance of keywords.

So before serving any ads on your site first check the density of keywords. You can find many keyword planner tools on the internet free of cost. Use any one of them and spend some time before selection. Just search in Google and you will find hundreds of such sites.

Below is some of the widely used website to plan the keywords-

But I will recommend you to use the Google AdWords to select the keywords at least initially, later you can move to any other.

Take care of the tag: Content is King!

It’s only said that content is king, it has value. Just think what is the key from which you are trying to earn? It’s definitely your content. Due to the content, only people will come to your site so make your content rich blog. Rich content doesn't mean you will have anything, it should worth. I mean to say here is your content should have quality so that visitors will come to your blog. It’s well said that-

Your content needs to be likable, readable and shareable, to get maximum traffic.

From a survey, it has been found that more than a million blog post is getting posted on the net daily, so you should need to be unique to have readers. And most importantly you should write the content for your readers not for the search engines or any other stuff. Because once you will be able to build a relationship with your readers, another thing like popularity and money will come automatically.

Also, you should take care about the grammar, quality, and value of the content you write. You can also take help of tools to check grammar errors.

Write the blog post frequently (Daily or once in two days)

The frequency of posts on your blog should be good. You should write a blog daily or at least one in two days. This will help the search engine to keep active your blog and readers will get more engaged. The number of content you will have, the number of visitors you will get. From my personal experience, I am telling you, if any visitor searches for a particular topic and reaches out to your blog, after reading that, if you are having other effective posts also; at least they will visit them. So try to be regular while posting and keep the older blog active. Then put AdSense unit to each and every page to earn better.

Don’t spam

There are plenty of ways to get banned or penalized by Google. The most common are spamming. People try to spam the Google (highest market share in searching). Sometimes for few hours/days, they get success but the Google script is so will form that they will find you and can ban.

Do you want it? Of course not. You are well smart.

So don’t try to copy the content from any other site. Write your own view. Research well before writing and definitely you are going to get success.

Some days ago, I read a story on Facebook. A guy simply copied pasted some good post from top sites and made his own. Also, he used his AdSense and placed some ads and did some SEO and in 2 days made around $90. On the very third day, Google detected this and banned that person. So never let such case to happen.

Use correct AdSense format and styles

AdSense provides ads for the websites in several format sizes like-

  • Medium rectangle (300 x 250)
  • Large rectangle (336 x 280)
  • Leaderboard (728 x 90)
  • Large skyscraper (300 x 600)
  • Large leaderboard (970 x 90)
  • Banner (468 x 60)
  • Skyscraper (120x600)
  • Wide skyscraper (160x600)
  • Square (250 x 250)
  • Small square (200 x 200)

The below three are most famous and webmasters are widely using these-

  • 336x280 large rectangle
  • 300x250 medium rectangle
  • 160x600 wide skyscraper

Another successful format is the 728x15 horizontal ad links, which can be placed on your navigation bar. So depending upon the space and requirement, select those which suits your blog.

Also while creating the AdSense unit, consider the colors (background and fonts) of ads too. They should not look odd. Google Ads with no background color and no borders will always perform better. It’s a good practice to keep the background of ad similar to your page background.

Increase AdSense units but don’t overflow

If you have good content on a page, increase the number of ad units, but don’t flood it. At most, you can use three units on a page, two AdSense search boxes and one unit of ad links. To earn more, always use at least one AdSense search box.

Also, your content should be written in reader perspective, not the AdSense prospective. I am repeating this line because; when bloggers start getting dollars they mainly focus on ads, not the content. But you should remember, due to content itself, you have received ads.

Use AdSense preview tool

To avoid any issue like ads are not looking good or they are not at the correct place, you can take help of AdSense preview tool. There are several such tools available on the internet free of cost using which you can preview the ad unit before actually placing it. Few of them are-

  • Google AdSense Sandbox
  • Webmaster tips
  • Google Ad Preview

Use filter in AdSense

You can ban those ads from display on your blog which are not paying well. By doing this with less click also you can manage to earn more. Few highest paying keywords are-

  • Note buyers
  • Car accident lawyer
  • Donate a car
  • Investment fraud
  • Search engine marketing
  • Web hosting

To complete this list, I’ll write a separate post on highest paying keywords :) But again remember, display only relevant ads on your blog.

Follow the Law

You must follow the AdSense terms & conditions and policy. You can read their T&C here. These terms vary depending on the location. This guide will help you to understand their terms and policies and you will avoid doing mistakes.

Never modify AdSense HTML codes

You should never modify the generated HTML codes. If you are having a problem while placing the ads in your post, just drop your question below and we’ll find the solution and will help you. Never ever edit the code.

Also never place ads in pop-up windows, error pages, and empty pages. Else Google will instantly ban your account.

 Not to do list with AdSense

There are few basics points that you should not try to do with AdSense ads. Else this will result in termination. So below are the lists on which you need to be more conscious-

  • Don’t click on your own ads and don’t even ask anyone to click.
  • Don’t use the ads on the adult sites
  • Don’t change the code of AdSense units
  • Don't employ cloaking, hidden text or farm links
  • Don’t place AdSense ads on the same page where you have Yahoo or some other ads that AdSense policy don’t allow

Conclusion: Making good money from AdSense is not too hard but at the same time it’s not too easy also. A lot of hard work and patience needed. But after following the above tips I am sure you are going to make good from it.
