Just removed Google Ads from my website
No more google ads on my websites.

I have just removed Google AdSense from my website. Here is my story. I have been member since August 2003 and after few OK months I have decided to remove Google ads from my website early in 2004 because of the restrictions, rules and limitations. They didnít want to disclose any details about the program and I had no control. I believe that there were no channels in 2003 available and a lot of other limitations.

Anyway, sometimes early in 2005 I was approached by Google sales rep. She explained that they have improved many things that I didnít like back in 2003/2004 and that they want me back. After several calls I agreed and decided to put Google ads on some of my smaller websites for testing purposes.

After about one months or ďtrying againĒ I decided to say Good Bye to Google once again. The reasons? Well, I still have no control over the ads that are being displayed on my website, the revenue share, and the every day changes in eCpm and so on.

I have been doing good without any ads on my website and I donít see a reason why should I been damaging my website with some ads that are not even relevant to my content (example: Miami or New York related ads on Hawaii travel website? No wonder the CTR is so low) and where I cant even choose what ads I want to have on my website plus to make it even worse I will only get paid whatever amount Google boys decide to pay me. (I seen 3 clicks valued at $0.04 total)

Oh well, at least I tried but I can assure all of you that you can be also doing well without Google (or any) ads. The payouts are down anyway. So start looking for other ways how too make some ca$h from your website.

"Good Bye Google Adsense!"

And what brings the wailing around?

Do You have any solution?

Anything where You would earn more than with AdSense?

Maybe You have some severe SEO failures to show so mistargeted ads.

You only joined WebmasterWorld a few days ago, why do you feel that your first post has to be an adverse comment about adsense, OK you personally feel you have had a bad experience with adsense, the general feeling is that other contextual advertising companies don't pay as much as google so before you start slating one advertiser I suggest you check out all the others.

(I seen 3 clicks valued at $0.04 total)

I will gladly have 5000 clicks a day at $0.04 a click, for some reason publishers are over looking the fact that not all ads will pay the big bucks what everyone is chasing.

hey and that goes for anyone else who does not want these low clicking ads, please sent them over to me

Youíre expressing views shared by many others. It's true too that there seems to be a downward trend in earnings for most publishers.

I suppose it depends on your mindset. If you've got a nice site and don't need the ads that fine. Advice can be given on "optimizing" you adverts but if you go over a certain level it will begin to detract from your site.

You misread the original poster. $0.04 TOTAL for 3 clicks. I've had it too. 0.0133 cents per click.

5000 clicks at that rate = $66.50 in revenue.

You can have my "low paying traffic" too. All of it, all the time, all you want.

Great money if you live in an underdeveloped nation and don't have to pay hosting fees. Just remember, your bank, if they have one in your country, will charge you $20 to convert to local currency. Good luck.

Yes, I have just joined recently. I have found this forum very informative when I have decided to give Google AdSense another chance. This forum also ensured me that I have made very good decision when I decided to remove it from my website.

I have been doing good without Google and I can recommend playing it clean to anyone. Just think about it. If you go and sell some product you will make more than a few cents per click from Google.

If 2% of my customers buy some product from me I will earn 10-20% commission on the value of the product. If 2% of my customers click on Google Ad I will only earn a fraction of that amount.

So just turn the table around and be the advertiser and sell your product. Why would anyone advertise on Google? I do. Just because guys like you will send me all the traffic for a few cents that I can turn into $20, $30, $40 commission for every sale. Just go to CJ and find the right targeted product for our website. It works better than some not related ads from Google (At least it works for me and my 6 employees.)

Peace

Januuski, I can feel where you are on this subject. I allowed similar 'bads' from AdSense simply because the money was too good to pass up.

Yesterday I removed 3000 pages of AdSense on a site that dropped to 4 bucks per thousand clicks. I'll have to work the previous method for generating revenue. I changed to AdSense because it blew away other methods of revenue generation, now I'm back to other methods that out perform AdSense.

Just a business trying to make a profit and going where the better returns are.

I have an editorial travel site, and I've always earned more from affiliate bookings than from AdSense. But (and this is an important "but"), AdSense allows me to earn revenue from pages that don't lend themselves to affiliate programs. It represents incremental income (and fairly significant incremental income, at that).

I should add that my earnings per click are a lot more than the penny or two that you mention--and I'm surprised to hear that a travel site about Hawaii should do so poorly. Is it possible that you're running AdSense ads only on certain types of pages that attract visitors who aren't necessarily making travel plans, such as image galleries? (My own eCPM on image-gallery pages is abysmal; on the average, it's probably 5% to 10% of what I earn from travel-planning pages that consist mostly of text.)

Finally, it just isn't realistic to think that you should be able to choose the ads that run on your pages. If you want that kind of control, find an ad network that lets you pick and choose among banner and skyscraper campaigns, or sell ads direct. Don't expect AdSense to be something that it isn't and was never intended to be.

I'm not sure I agree with you on this one, the whole of AdSense is evolving and from where I sit the program changes being made do include much more control for both advertisers and publishers.

My site is doing great (without any ads) and thatís what I'm trying to say. My website makes enough to support me and my 6 employees. I decided to put some Google ads on pages where I dont have a direct product to sell unfortunately it is better for me to replace the Google ads with links to my own website or to link back to the sections on my website where I can my the $$$.

It is your decision if you want the users to click on an AdSense link and leave your website or on a link to your own website where you can sell your own product and make some real $$$.

I earn plenty of real $$$s, but if a reader is reading a review of an Elbonian barge cruise, linking to a page of hotel affiliate links (even 5-star hotel affiliate links) isn't going to produce income. Displaying AdSense ads for travel agents who sell Elbonian barge cruise will produce income. It allows me to monetize pages that don't lend themselves to revenue from affiliate programs.

As for users leaving the site, they're perfectly welcome to leave my site if it means more money for me. :-) Also, don't assume that a user who leaves the site is forever lost. Repeat visitors can be an excellent source of traffic and income. But then, you must have known that if you were willing to try AdSense in the first place. :-)

To Januuski

Thank you for your reply, most adsense publishers don't sell a product and do rely on the adsense earning to support their site and you are fortunate not to have to go down that route, now you have explained that it much clearer on why you removed adsense from your site

BTW welcome to Webmasterworld

Just remember, your bank, if they have one in your country

Er fearlessrick, I am sure there was plenty of banks in the UK the last time I looked ;)

OK maybe I did misread the original post
note to self...reread and make sure you understand the post before posting

5000 clicks at that rate = $66.50 in revenue

1,000's of publishers would give their right arm to earn $66.50 in revenue a day, going off current threads and postings most don't earn that in a month

$66.50 x 30 days = $1995 - $20 to convert to local currency = $1975 a month...hmm not to be sniffed at in my book

don't forget half of nothing is nothing, better to earn something than nothing at all, so like I said earlier and it still stands, if you are not happy with earning these low ctr's then give them to me, I will even buy the site off you

1. The visitor may have wanted to leave the site anyway, ads or no ads.

2. If an ad made the user leave the site forever, what would be the probability that visitor was going to be a customer anyway?

3. If the visitor likes the site they will bookmark it or come back. It's alot of work to search for a good quality site.

4. Don't put adsense on sales pages. Why not try adsense on your content pages?
