Google Adsense: Keeping Your Account From Being Disabled and Useful Books About the Program

How Can I Make Sure That My Account Will Not Be Disabled? Google Adsense Program Policies make no allowances for deceptive practices. The most important thing a publisher can do to ensure the integrity of their site is to be aware of what is happening on your site. Google has made it abundantly clear not to click on your own ads or ask others to do so. But what about practices a publisher may not purposely carry out? Make sure that ads associated with Google never appear in an unrequested pop-up. Don't be talked into purchasing traffic for your site that may contain adware. Respect the Google trademarks. Don't use any Google trademarks or logos without their consent. Don't change the Adsense code. If you're a pro at html, don't assume you can add your own code. If you're new to html, simply copy and paste the offered code. Don't mess with it. Provide a good environment for advertisers and a positive user experience. Don't try to be deceptive in any way. Google's rules may sound strict, but believe me, protecting the integrity of the Google Adsense Program is in your best interest as well as Google's. ...

Google Adsense: Where to Place Ads on Your Web Pages and a Profile of Bloggerparty.com

Deciding Where to Place Your Google Ads on Your Web Pages so That They Will Be Most Profitable This is one of the best parts of the whole Google Adsense experience. No one else gets to make this decision except you. It's your page. You get to decide how many ( up to 3 ads per page), what colors and shapes you will use and on what part of the page the ad will be placed. Should you place your ads at the top or bottom? In the middle of the text? To the left or right? The most important decision should be based on the needs of the visitors to your site? What are they looking for? Are they there to read or merely to browse. If they are there to read an entire article, say, you might try placing your ads at the bottom of the page so they will have something to do next. Some publishers swear by placing the ads at the top left of the page because they think customers look there first. The fun thing is experimenting with all the possibilities. Try different ad locations and different colors ...

Google Adsense: What is Google Adsense for Search

Google Adsense for Search is different than Adsense for Content but it is just as important to your earning power with the Google Adsense program. Just like Adsense for Content places targeted ads on your content pages, Adsense for Search places targeted ads on the results page of the search set in motion on your page. You can use the standard Google search box on your site and the user can then search the web or even your site. When you feel more comfortable, you can change the look of the Google search box, essentially customizing it by changing the colors and using your logo. The best thing about Google Adsense for Search is that you can track what your visitors are searching for. That is, if the search has two or more hits. Unique queries will not be tracked. But you can see the top 25 searches performed from your website by clicking on the Advance Report from the Reports tab and specifying a date range. Word Count 175 PPPPP

Using Guest Bloggers

Owners of a successful blog that has a large following may sometimes have the need to use guest bloggers.
