AdSense Beautifier no longer Compliant with Adsense TOS

in Adsense/Article/Google by

Looks like a bad news for me. According to Inside AdSense about Ad and Image Placement Policy, is AdSense Beautifier no longer compliant with Adsense Terms of Service? Let’s take a look about this.

We ask that publishers not line up images and ads in a way that suggests a relationship between the images and the ads. If your visitors believe that the images and the ads are directly associated, or that the advertiser is offering the exact item found in the neighboring image, they may click the ad expecting to find something that isn’t actually being offered. That’s not a good experience for users or advertisers.

Publishers should also be careful to avoid similar implementations that people could find misleading. For instance, if your site contains a directory of Flash games, you should not format the ads to mimic the game descriptions.

AdSense beautifier comes with general images. That’s the reason why I always pending to show images relate to post’s keywords 😉 I always use general images to avoid mislead or confuse my visitors.

What if I place a space or a line between my images and my ads? Would that work?

No. If the ads and the images appear to be associated, inserting a small space or a line between the images and ads will not make the implementation compliant.

AdSense beautifier places a space or a line between images and ads and comes with general images that does not appear to be associated with ads.

Does this mean I can’t place ads on pages with images?

You can definitely place Google ads on pages containing images — just make sure that the ads and images are not arranged in a way that could easily mislead or confuse your visitors. For example, if you run a stock photography site with a catalog of thumbnail images, don’t line the ads up with the thumbnails in a way that could be misleading. Consider using a full border around your ads or changing your ad colors, for example.

As It says, you can use AdSense Beautifier — just make sure that the ads and images are not arranged in a way that could easily mislead or confuse your visitors. It’s depends on your images. You should use general images that does not appear to be associated with ads.

But You should always contact Google AdSense team to make sure your ads always compliants with Adsense Terms of Service. You should use AdSense Beautifier with your own risk as always I said 🙂

😀 Have a great day and good luck!

Monetizing your WordPress

in Adsense/Article/Blogging/Google/Wordpress by

Monetizing your WordPress

You may want to make a few bucks (or more) from your WordPress to help pay for hosting charges and other costs associated with running it. Some bloggers find that they can make more than just small change, but most not enough to quit their day job. Here are a few of the more popular methods to monetizing your WordPress.

Several ways by which you can make money with your weblog include Google Adsense, Amazon Associates, various other affiliate programs, advertising, and donations. In this post you can find some WordPress plugins helping you to monetizing your WordPress easily. The success of these following programs is highly dependent upon your content and the level of traffic you get to your site and your strategic to use them.

Google AdSense

AdSense is an ad serving program run by Google. Website owners can enroll in this program to enable text, image and, more recently, video advertisements on their sites (According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AdSense).

To be able to put Google Ads on your site, you first need to be accepted into the Google AdSense program. Go to Google AdSense to apply this program. Google will monitor your site to see if you have the traffic and the content that would pull in sufficient clicks to make your participation in the program worthwhile to Google and to you. If accepted into the program, all you need to do is place a bit of javascript on one or more of your site templates to create the ads.

How much money can you expect to make from Google Adsense? It’s all depends on You. You make from a little bucks to a millions 😉 Google doesn’t allow its participants to publicly share their clicks and earnings data but you can make a rough estimate. The average click-through rate for online advertising in general is around 0.5 to 1.0%. With that rate, if you get 1000 page views per day (pages with Google ads on them), you should expect anywhere from 5 to 10 clicks per day. What will each of those clicks pay? Well, that depends on your content and the keywords on your page that are triggering the ads being served.

Here is a table showing the fees you could expect for every page views per day:

AdSense Fee Table

Here is a list of severals WordPress plugins for AdSense:

  • AdSense Deluxe
  • AdSense Beautifier
  • AdSense Paster
  • Google AdSense Earnings
  • and many more

Affiliate Programs

Another popular way to generate income from your weblog is through signing on with an affiliate program. How this program works? A company lets a website owner place a link or button on your site promoting the company’s product. When one of your site visitors clicks on the link or button, the visitor is taken to a landing page to be induced to buy something. If the visitor buys something, you get a commission from the company. Sometimes the commissions are for leads, but most often they are for completed sales.

Just place a link on your site is not a good enough result. Sometimes you should use another trick to make this program really works for you 😉 I just got this trick from my friend. Let’s we try this trick together and let me know the result 😀

First, make a review about your product. After a few weeks days, you put up a visible banner on your site. This will make your visitor be curios, why this guy (you) put this banner here. Then after a few weeks, you talk about the affiliate program (you make money on 2nd tier). Finally after a few more weeks you start pre sell.

The most popular Affiliate program in the blogosphere is Amazon’s associate program. When you place a link to a book on Amazon from your site and someone clicks through that link and buys the book, you get a commission.

Other affiliate programs can help pull in revenue to your site, especially if they are for products that have something to do with the content on your site. Commission Junction is the leading affiliate network, making it very easy for individual website owners to participate in affiliate programs. Ebay, Barnes & Noble, Match.com, IBM, Dell, Expedia.com all offer affiliate programs through Commission Junction.

You can use these following plugins:

  • WP-Amazon
  • Amazon Media Manager
  • TicTap Contextual Ads for Amazon
  • and many more

Advertising

You can also take advertising directly from advertisers for your site. One company that operates as a network of bloggers that accept advertising is Blogads. Another blog ad network is CripsADS, Text Link Ads, Performancing Partner, Adbrite, and many more.

You can use these following plugins:

  • Text Link Ads
  • AdBrite Paster
  • and many more

Donations and Tip Jars

You can monetizing your WordPress by placing a simple PayPal Donation button on your site. You need to open PayPal account to collect your donation.
You can use these following plugins:

  • EasyPayPal
  • Paypal Donate
  • Simple Paypal Donate Plugin
  • and many more

Blog Exchange

in Adsense/Article/Google by

A traffic exchange is a type of website on the Internet, which provides a service for webmasters to exchange of traffic. Blog exchange is a special traffic exchanges for blogs. A blog exchange program applies this basic idea: view other member’s blog and they will view yours. It is classified in two, automatic and manual.

In the manual blog exchange, you manually click through the other members blog. To earn one visitor you must wait for the programmed time to expire (this varies from 20 or 30 seconds, depending on the blog exchange you signed up for) before clicking the next site in rotation. More often than not, bonus points are given to regular surfers, assuring you of visitors to your blog.

Automatic blog exchange (autosurf) is blog exchanges that automatically rotate advertised blog in one’s Internet browser. Autosurf differs from manual blog exchanges in that the blog rotation is automatic; an ad viewer need not respond or even view the sites.

Such blog exchanges are BlogExplosion, BlogMad, BlogAZoo and BlogAdvance.

Google AdSense

Traffic is the key to getting profit. The more traffic for your blog, the more changes you get click for your AdSense.

Adsense states in its policies on Prohibited Clicks and Impressions:

Any method that artificially generates clicks or impressions is strictly prohibited. These prohibited methods include but are not limited to: repeated manual clicks or impressions, incentives to click or to generate impressions, using robots, automated click and impression generating tools, third-party services that generate clicks or impressions such as paid-to-click, paid-to-surf, autosurf, and click-exchange programs, or any deceptive software. Please note that clicking on your own ads for any reason is prohibited, to avoid potential inflation of advertiser costs.

You can not join autosuft traffic exchange for your blog or site that display Google AdSense. How abou manualsurf? Although it is not specifically mentioned in the policies regarding manual surfing, it still is a tool that generates impression and part of a click-exchange program.

I’m not really sure to join blog exchange for my blog that display Google AdSense. My personal experience, there is a litle even no click result from blog exchange. When I asked Google Team about manual surf, they said:

Hello,

We understand that you would like to have more traffic visiting your site. However, we do not endorse or encourage the use of any traffic exchange programs for this purpose.

We recommend that you exercise caution when using traffic exchange programs to ensure that you do not violate the AdSense Terms and Conditions and that you do not artificially inflate your pageviews or clicks. Please note that AdSense participants are solely responsible for verifying that any tools or software used in conjunction with AdSense do not violate the AdSense Terms and Conditions.

For your reference, you can find tips and guidelines for keeping an AdSense account in good standing by visiting our Help Center at https://www.google.com/support/adsense/bin/answer.py?answer=23921.

To protect your interests as well as those of our advertisers, Google monitors clicks and impressions on Google ads to prevent any abuse of the AdSense program. Google’s proprietary technology analyzes all ad clicks and impressions for any activity intended to artificially drive up an advertiser’s costs or a publisher’s earnings.

Clicks or impressions deemed by our monitoring system to be invalid will appear in your reports, but because advertisers are not charged for them, no associated revenue will be shown. Please rest assured that your account is being properly credited for all valid clicks and impressions.

Sincerely,

The Google AdSense Team

Bottom Line

  • There is still no answer about manual surf with google AdSense.
  • If you do not really sure to join blog exchange that show your AdSense, disable them as soon as possible.
  • You can still enable you AdSense with your own risk 🙂
  • You can control your AdSense display using Phpadsnew. You can setup that your AdSense will not show up when visitor come from your blog exchange.

I have been waiting for the PIN for so long because the PIN was generate on August 17, 2006 and it will take 2-4 weeks for delivery meaning it will reach by Sep 14 but it is already Sep 8. Since I am a ?patient? person so I waiting for the PIN without emailing AdSense team or request for the second PIN.

In order to become eligible to receive payments for your AdSense account, all publishers are required to enter a Personal Identification Number (PIN). PINs are printed on white 4.5 x 6 inch (11.4 x 15.2 cm) postcards and sent via standard mail.

Google AdSense for Search on WordPress

in Adsense/Google/Tutorial by

When Google let users add AdSense for Search results on my own site, I tried to install it. I want to keep elements like the header, footer, and site navigation panel the same for the search results page I create. You should try this new feature to your wordpress.

To use it, just choose the “Open results within my own site” radio button when you’re generating your AdSense for search code. You’ll also need to identify the page where you’d like to display your search results.

Google will give you two sets of code: one for the search box, and one for search results. Place the first set on a page where you’d like the search box to appear, and the second set on the page you’d like the search results to appear. Whenever users perform searches on your AdSense for search box, they’ll be directed to the page on which you placed the search results code.

It’s sound so easy. I just tried it and I couldn?t get it to work on my blog 🙁 What is wrong? Therefore, I search to find the solution of my problem. I get a solution from macstansbury for my problem. Thanks for your tutorial.

Here are steps to install Google AdSense for Search on WordPress:

  1. Create a new page named “Search Results,” or something similar.
  2. Put your search box code in your sidebar or wherever you decide. I put this code in searchform.php and call this function on my sidebar.
  3. Set up the search to point to the page your created.
  4. After you put the Search code where you want it, do a search for anything.
  5. The result page you get will have no results. For some reason, any header javascripts interfere with the Search code. I think this is a main problem. Let’s fix this problem.
  6. Create a new page template in your theme folder. The theme would start with this as the first line:
    <?php
    /*
    Template Name: Google Search
    */
    ?>

    Feel free to named this template.

  7. Upload this to your theme folder in a moment, after you’ve titled the file googlesearch.php and saved it.
  8. Go to the search page you created (the one I named “Search Results”), and get the HTML for the page. You?ll need to copy it and paste the actual code into your googlesearch.php file. Look through the code, and take out any javascripts in the <head> section. Also take out any of the admin code, such as the one for editing the page. You’ll need to take out any javascript-dependent elements from your page, as well. I take out sidebar code, because Google Search result will overlap my sidebar 🙂
  9. Save your googlesearch.php file, then upload it in the same folder as the theme you’re using right now.
  10. Go into edit your search results page and change the Page Template to “Google Search” (or whatever you named the template) and save the page.
  11. Well done! You’ll get get the results I get!

Try search something on my blog just for test.

😀 Gud lak

Blogger in Beta Review

in Blogging/Google by

August 14, 2006 Blogger has recently launched a new version of Blogger in beta! This is a much awaited update.

Some other changes are that now you can login either with your current blogger account or your Google account.Though only some of the current accounts are upgraded as of now but if you really want to test the features and don?t wish to wait any longer then you can create a new account.

You’ve been asking for ways to do more with your blog, and you can with this new release. With the beta you can:

  • Categorize your posts with labels
  • Control who can read your blog
  • Change the appearance and content of your blog with your mouse instead of HTML

Because the new Blogger uses Google Accounts, you can use your existing Google login, or create a new one. (Later, you’ll be able to merge your current and beta accounts, and have all your blogs in one place.)

😀 Happy blogging and gud lak!
