What is AdSense? How does it make a blog earn? As mentioned earlier, AdSense is a program from Google. When you place Google Ads on your page or blog, you maximize your potentials of earning additional revenues. These ads are normally those that are relevant to your blog or the topic you are talking about. Usually, Google chooses ads that are the most expected to generate good revenues for your blog. Once these ads are displayed on your blog, site visitors can click on the ads, thereby giving you extra money.
Of course, it will also help if your blog's content is of excellent quality, because this is what will first attract visitors into the site. Your blog should talk about interesting and timely issues that anybody can relate to; young or old, rich or not, black or white.
So, how can bloggers incorporate AdSense into their blogs? If you are interested to find out just how this can be done, the following are the basic steps that you can follow for using AdSense in your blogs:
* The contextual ads that will come out on your page are all related to your blog as they are constantly adjusted by Google. The best ads are text links while flashing images should be avoided. Your ads can be placed in between blogs or on the side portion of the page. Ads that are evenly distributed are the ones easily noticed by visitors.
* Once your ad is ready and is shown on your blog page/s, visitors can start clicking on them while Google begins to record every click that takes place and these clicks are then converted to money. Once your blog has earned enough, Google will have a check ready for you!
Making your blog earn through AdSense is a very simple process to follow. However, the first thing that you will need to do, before employing AdSense, is to make sure that you have relevant and interesting content materials for your blog. Once visitors find reading your blog informative and fun, your visitors will never stop coming, and the clicks will never cease! Remember, the more ad clicks, the more revenue you will earn!

Google AdSense is the most common way of making money from blogging. The simplicity of copying and pasting some code to your site means that almost anyone is able to start earning money from their blog as soon as the site is up on the internet.
However, to get the most out of your AdSense placements, you need to concentrate on a few "tricks of the trade", so that not only are you getting the highest number of visitors clicking your ads, but that those ads are paying you the best financial return possible.
AdSense is a Google ads system that will place ads on your site or blog, in any area where you think they are best suited. The ads will be relevant to the content of your site, which is done via Google's search resources.
These searches will scan your site and the content on the site, to determine which ads best suit your subject matter. An example of this would be where you might have a blog that discusses the differences between "Aquarium Fish" and "Tropical Fish". Google will configure your AdSense ads to show links to other sites and products, which relate to "aquariums", "fish accessories", "training books" and a whole lot of other things that are related.
With AdSense, your revenue is basically automatic. There are some Terms & Conditions regarding the placement of ads on any site, and these can be found here. They are not too restrictive, but in order to not have your AdSense account interrupted, or suspended, make sure you follow the guidelines. Once you have your ads on your site, you are good to go, and your blog can start to earn some money for you, virtually on auto-pilot.
With AdSense the whole idea is that when people visit your site and see the ads, they will find them interesting or related enough to click on them.
Each time someone clicks on your ads, you are allocated a fee from Google. This fee (revenue) could be anywhere from 1 cent to many dollars per click, and in further articles we will explain how to get the most from your AdSense clicks.
Unless you are very experienced in the use of AdSense, it is recommended that it is just a good foundation for making money from blogging. It is a great start to any revenue plan.
Using Google AdSense is just ONE method you can use to make money from your blog but it is NOT the most effective!
In fact, many of the professional bloggers who earn multiple six figure incomes from their blogs attribute just a small percentage of their overall income to on-site advertising!
So, if the majority of their income does NOT come from advertising, then where DOES it come from?
I reveal the answer in my FREE ebook Stop Slogging Start Blogging as well as many other secrets the six figure professional bloggers use to make huge sums of money from their blogs!

Remove borders on your AdSense ads. Web visitors eyes wander around the screen; borders stop them from wandering.
Removing borders from your AdSense ads can lead to a significant boost in CTR.
Use Matching Fonts
Match the font of your site content to the fonts of your AdSense ads.
Use Matching Colors
Match the colors of your AdSense ads to the colors of your site content. Make the ads look like content and more visitors will look at them.
One exception to the color matching rule is sites that are designed to appeal to scammers and spammers. Those sites sometimes perform better with highly contrasting colors.
Use Blue Links
Another exception to the color matching rule is to set the links in your AdSense ads to blue. Blue links tend to have a higher CTR than other link colors, because people have become used to clicking blue links.
Use Large Ads
Larger ads outperform smaller ads. Wider ads also outperform more narrow ads.
The Large Rectangle (336x280) is the best performing ad unit.
Use Lots of Ads
Google allows you to use three ad units and one link unit on each page.
Use them all. The more ads you have, the higher your Page CTR will be.
Place Ads Above the Fold
"The fold" is industry jargon for "the part of the page that the user sees without scrolling down". This will vary depending upon the resolution of the users screen and the size of their browser window.
Place as many ads as possible above the fold. Ads placed below the fold are seldom seen and seldom clicked.
Place Ads on the Left
Web users are accustomed to seeing menus on the left side of the web page. Move your menu to the right and place your AdSense ads on the left.
Use the Heat Map
Use the Google AdSense Heat Map to determine where to place ads. The darker spots are areas where users spend more time looking. Place your ads in the darker areas.
Integrate Ads with Content
Visitors will be reading your content. Keeps your ads as close to your content as possible to ensure that the visitors also look at your ads.
Use Custom Channels
Use AdSense's Custom Channels to test the performance of different ad sizes, placements, colors and fonts.
Don't use Low-Paying Competing Ads
Don't clutter your page with competing ads that don't pay. If a user clicks on an ad that pays you $.01, they are not clicking on an ad that pays you $.30.
Use URL Channels
Use AdSense URL Channels to determine which pages are making you the highest CTR, CPM, and earnings. Focus your efforts on building pages like those.
Use an AdSense Reporting Package
Google only supports 200 channels. If you have more than 200 pages, use AdSense reporting software to give you more insight into your AdSense earnings.
Don't Compete for Other Peoples High Paying Keywords
If a keyword is on a list of high-paying keywords, that means that thousands of spammers are already competing for that keyword.
Don't be a follower. There is no money in being one of the crowd.
Do Compete for Your Own High Paying Keywords
Monitor your AdSense URL channels to determine which keywords are making you the most money. Compete for those keywords. Build more pages optimized for similar keywords. Get inbound links for those keywords. Spend your time and efforrt on the keywords which are making you money.
In the long run, the best way to increase your AdSense revenue is to increase traffic to your web site.

When I reworked my site, I built a skeleton set of pages that had no content, just titles and some meta tags. I displayed ads on those pages, however. Although all you see are public service ads at first, the very act of displaying ads on a page causes the AdSense web crawler to quickly fetch that page for analysis. A page with good content will thus begin showing relevant paying ads fairly quickly.
If you don't have any content, then, Google will have to guess as what your page is about. It may guess wrong, and so the ads that it displays may not be relevant. You'll have to wait until Google re-crawls the site for the ads to correct themselves. Here is what Google had to say when I asked them about how often the AdSense crawler updates a site:
Thank you for taking the time to update your site. New ads will start appearing on your site the next time our crawler re-indexes your site. Unfortunately at this time, we are unable to control how often our crawlers index the content on your site.
Crawling is done automatically by our bots. When new pages are added to your website or introduced to the AdSense program, our crawlers will usually get to them within 30 minutes. If you make changes to a page, however, it may take up to 2 or 3 weeks before the changes are reflected in our index. Until we are able to crawl your web pages, you may notice public service ads, for which you will not receive any earnings.
It's better to flesh out the page before you start displaying ads on it. "

But that doesn't mean there aren't any number of mistakes that you can make when trying to increase your AdSense income - and any one of those mistakes can keep you earning candy money instead of earning the sort of cash that can pay for your home.
There is one mistake though that will totally destroy your chances of earning a decent AdSense income before you've even started.
That mistake is making your ad look like an ad.
No one wants to click on an ad. Your users don't come to your site looking for advertisements. They come looking for content and their first instinct is to ignore everything else. And they've grown better and better at doing just that. Today's Internet users know exactly what a banner ad looks like. They know what it means, where to expect it - and they know exactly how to ignore it. In fact most Internet users don't even see the banners at the top of the Web pages they're reading or the skyscrapers running up the side.
But when you first open an AdSense account, the format and layout of the ads you receive will have been designed to look just like ads. That's the default setting for AdSense - and that's the setting that you have to work hard to change.
That's where AdSense gets interesting. There are dozens of different strategies that smart AdSense account holders can use to stop their ads looking like ads - and make them look attractive to users. They include choosing the right formats for your ad, placing them in the most effective spots on the page, putting together the best combination of ad units, enhancing your site with the best keywords, selecting the most ideal colors for the font and the background, and a whole lot more besides.
The biggest AdSense mistake you can make is leaving your AdSense units looking like ads.
The second biggest mistake you can make is to not know the best strategies to change them.
