Google Adsense

Threaded View

I just recently added google adsense to my website.  I'm glad I did
too!  I'm making quite a bit more from google adsense than I was
using banners.

After adding google adsense, I was doing pretty good, however, I
figured I could be doing better.  So, I looked up some google adsense
tips sites, took their advice, applied it to my site, and boy, it
worked! I'm doing better now because of it!

But I do have a couple of questions.  Firstly,  I am real new to google
adsense.  And they say something like, if I am just starting out, I
have to wait for a pin# to be mailed to me, and then after receiving
the pin#, I have to input that pin# into the google adsense website in
order to get paid.  Has anyone gone through this?  How long do you
normally have to wait for the pin# to be mailed to you?  And, after
inserting the pin# into the google adsense website, do they start
paying you what they owe you straight away?

Secondly,  I have been to a few google adsense websites. But, do any of
you have any other suggestions on where I can go for google adsense
tips? such as sites, discussion groups and the like?

Whatever info and advice you can give me will be greatly appreciated.

One  interesting  and constructive thing you can do is tailor the ads  and
adapt  them to the real content, thereby helping AdSense (i.e. the  adver-
tisers in turn) get desired contextual placement and helping your visitors
get  relevant links that fit well the topic you discuss. You are then more
likely to get clickthroughs too. See, for example, the discusssion here: /

The principal idea is tagging. Writing many pages about asbestos might in-
crease your profits, but will leads to advertisers and visitors who frown.

Re: Google Adsense

Hey Roy,

I checked out your link, but couldn't see how this related to AdSense
targeting.  I've been trying to get better targeting on two sites of
<shamelessplugs> , and
by loading them with hidden text.  (I didn't at first, but GA was
really off in the content.  Both sites target general audiences, but
Google was putting up extremely technical stuff.)  Has anyone had
experience doing this?

Another question: how can I get the GoogleAds bot to rescan my site?
I've changed the contents, but I'm still getting ads suited to the
previous content.

Just put them up and leave them there.  Let Google worry about
delivering the most relevant ads.  It's in their interest as much as
yours to do so.  I find the ads delivered are usually very relevant.

You have to ask yourself also, what is your primary motive, to make an
adsense site that also has some content on it, or to deliver a useful
service to your visitors?

When I see people spending all their time analysing PR or adsense, it
looks to me that they don't have much in the way of a service to offer.  
This will be obvious to the visitor also.

If you are just starting out, there is a lot to learn about AdSense. The
absolute best resource I know about is the DigitalPoint forum:

All your questions are answered there already, but, like I said, you have
a lot to read and learn.

Good luck!

No there isn't.  You just put the code on your page.
