Note that this is my tried and tested personal experiment. This is not another ‘how I make money from Google Adsense’ craps.
Well, do I need to repeat that I no longer sell text links or do paid posts on this blog and my personal blog? This means I have been released from the bondage of writing paid posts. That would mean, no ads in your posts because advertisers paid for that posts. Though we can filter out with plugins, I didn’t insert advertisements in my posts because I was afraid if I accidentally leave one out, I could get banned from the network. All along, I never insert Google Adsense in my posts.
Then, after I had chopped off two of the most lucrative blog incomes, i.e. paid posts and text links, I need to find ways to compensate. Adding Google Adsense into posts is of course the only way as now I only worship the Google god. I eat google, I shit google.
AndrewOoi told me about Shylock Adsense plugin and I immediately download and put it up. It works! I have seen an increase in Google Adsense from these two blogs. So, if you have freed yourself from the bondage of paid posts, try the plugin. What I like is the options for us to use different ads format for different posts.
For eg. if my blog posts are older than seven days old, the single post will have one huge, big, giant rectangle ad added into the middle of the post. For newer post, I added a discreet 468×60 ad. So that guys like you who follow my blog daily don’t get annoyed with huge rectangle in the middle of my post.
Talking about accidental clicks, I hope all of you are aware that Google has recently made it harder for us to earn Adsense because they changed the ‘clickable’ area. Previously, if we accidentally clicked the surrounding area of a Google ad, the advertisers have to pay the publishers. Now, only the URL area is clickable. That means, we lost a bit of income due to the lesser chance of ‘accidental clicks’.
With the plugin I mentioned, I am glad I have seen an increase in Google Adsense this past week. I am so happy I even placed an advertisement on the plugin author’s site.
