I had a good week last week. There were two things I did which may have made a difference:
1. I changed the wording in the description metatag for my index page in an effort to improve ranking for a particular set of keywords.
2. I stopped posting some of my updates to Facebook. I really think Facebook is sucking some of the life out of my traffic, so if someone wants to get the good stuff offered on my website, they're going to have to go directly to the source.
Also, I spoke to someone from Google Adwords last week who assured me that using Google Adwords does not adversely affect earnings on Adsense. I've heard from various sources over the last couple of years that it's not a good idea to use Adwords to drive traffic to your site if you get any revenue through Adsense. The representative from Google said I didn't need to worry about that. If the content on a website is original and substantial, there's no need to worry. I always kind of knew that but you hear a lot of crazy stuff on some of the boards here and on Google.
By the way...who's the biggest purveyor of nonsense at the Google Adsense Help Center? I'm curious to know if anyone here has an opinion on that.
