Before readers start drooling over the concept of making money from nothing, understand the most important fact: content counts. The second fact: well-designed sites are key to success. Content first, design second, and Google is, in a big way, third. That order is crucial to finding value in Comm's book, or any of his competitor's books.
If you have AdSense already, but have never read about the better strategies, this book is for you. If you have a content-driven site, finding ways to smartly integrate AdSense will be natural. Comm can help you figure how and where you can use AdSense. It will help to have a general knowledge about how AdSense works.
A big value to AdSense in a niche site is that if your customers are simply not interested in what you offer, the ads displayed might serve them better than your site did. they came to your site believing you might have what they need, whether it was a product or knowledge. Probably, this is because your site showed well in results of a keyword search on Google. For this same reason, your site will have ads along the lines of what your customer is looking.
Learn to strategically exclude the competition, or off-color ads. Google wants good ads on your site. Whomever is advertising wants his good ads on your site. Your customer wants good ads on your site. And you want good ads. By excluding what you consider bad ads, everyone is happy. Your click-thru increases, and you make more money.Read more ›
I applied the information in The Adsense Code and began making money (albeit not a lot) the very first day I added adsense to my blog. But, by continuing to apply the tactics laid out in the book, my adsense revenue has increased virtually every day.
The book lays out in a very specific and detailed manner what you need to do to implement Google adsense, how to maximize click throughs and how to set up adsense to generate the most revenue.
This book is great for beginners or advanced users of adsense. Joel explains many ways to use adsense and places to include adsense that I'd never considered.
An added bonus is that the book also gives you many new ideas for generating new traffic to your blog or website.
This book is a must for every serious internet marketers bookshelf.
One tip from the book is to make your AdSense ad look as much like your weblog as possible. People try to ignore ads and this way you may get more "clicks".
I had already set up Adsense on my weblog, [...]and had chosen this look to begin with.
Sure, you can sift through thousands of posts on Adsense forums to get these tips, you can also sit and do your own A/B tests with color combinations, format sizes, placement, etc...
Or you can buy this book.
The book is a bit heavy on the self promotion and you don't *need* any of the tools that the author is pushing.
What you do need is a functioning website with good content and lots of traffic for this book to work.
I'm giving the book five stars only because it is the first book in a long time that has put money directly in my pocket.
