Ok sorry about the title i was aiming to get the attention of master webmaster's, Just had to tell everyone I earnt my highest earnings ever for a day.

-------------------- $2.45 --------------------

Even though it may only convert to £1.20 i am very happy.
I made changes to ad placement and changed parts of the page.
I do have a problem however as i am not getting search results from google.
I have a few incoming links and was recently given a PR3
but when i search in google for Mysite.com i get most pages but all the results are supplemental but when searching for www.mysite.com i get 3 results that are supplemental or have no descriptions.
What can i do, i am 17 and keen to make money with adsense.

Grow 1 year, you have to be 18 to be with adsense :)

More seriously, make sure you have example.com redirecting 301 to www.mysite.com and use keywords in the urls.

I think you may want to ask this in an SEO forum, not adsense :)

Edit: meta kewords are worthless, but a good meta description can get people to click your link in the serps.

Is the 301 redirect just .htaccess and are there any problems with doing this (Google picking up and penalising for example)?

When you say keywords in url is that domain.com/bluewidgetshere with the sub domains being used to taget visitors. Does this help listings in google . Also would there be a difference doing this statically and dynamically (the latter using something like php)?

Google doesn't care if you use php or static html as long as you give them the same content in the same place every time. No dynamic keyword stuffing and moving pages around.

What works best in my experience:

www.example.com/topic/key_phrase (using mod_rewrite of course, avoid www.example.com/index.php?topic=topic&article_id=23 like the plague)

This way you are more likely to get targeted adsense ads, since you include the topic, it looks clean to the human eye, easy to type in, and google likes it.

No more than 3 words in the keyphrase. I normally use 2 to avoid spammy looking urls. Use mostly the same, and relevant words in the title, h1 and url.

No .php extension.

And if you're doing this in PHP anyway you can easily get the the topic into the page title in a non-spammy way too, like "Article name Topic", which helps you rank for people doing more general searches in the topic of the article too. And it helps tell adsense what ads to show.

Use correct html, and logical page layout with h1 and h2 tags, but do not spam in the header tags.

Design your page for accessibility, with non-spammy alt tags for images, link titles and logical (hierachical) page and link structure. Think of google as a blind user with a screen reader who needs to be told what everything is.

Use a css & div-based layout to get your content closer to the top of the page with less html code cluttering things for googlebot.

Use section targeting for adsense.

And the 301 is encouraged. Google has no problem with this. Without it they see the site with www and the one without it as separate duplicate pages. Not good.

You may not agree or think this is obvious.

On the mod rewrite bit is this worth learning about. I've yet to run an article based site so urls look like domain.com/widgets/factsaboutwidgets/ and domain.com/widgets/bestselling/. The pages are mostly in PHP but with little sever side code.

My only problem with 301 redirects is I attempted it by redirecting a established website (already listed in search engines) to encopass a new domain (so domain1.com/folder became domain2.com). Whilst it may not be related the site suffered heavily in Google and has still yet to recovered to it's former position several months on. Is there a risk this will happen again.

That's a different situation with many more factors involved. It should not happen when redirecting non-www to www.
