Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
Someone said it's easier to get from $20/day to $50/day than from $8/day to $20/day. Has anyone experienced this? Is it true?
Then I started reading about other people making that much daily...
I read tips on here (they are all over, just spend a few days reading the forums, which is what I did).... and expiriment. That is really what has helped me; expirimenting with different ad layouts, # of ads, placement, colors, etc.
Also this month I've made a huge push in adding new content. I've added several new articles, features, etc.-- which have been bringing in a lot of visitors from searches.
First time I ever got nervous and wrote to Google to verify I'm not getting malicious click traffic as my CTR jumped a couple of percentage points.
Hope this is real clicks as this kind of clicking would finish putting me in the UPS Club :)
...could I double my income every month (at least for a little while)?
Sure you could.
I would suggest, that if your site is making $18 (may be different tomorrow, who knows?) then it has been tweaked good enough, and I would say, don't mess with it anymore. (lest you mess something up)
Check your logs to see the keywords that visitors are finding you with. You may be surprised with another idea for a page. Start working on another page and add it. Keep adding more pages.
AND... finding related websites to exchange links would be a bonus too.
Yup-- adding new content has been helping.
I added 2 new pages that brought in a ton of content-- because they were terms people search for :D
Link exchanges-- I've started that. Which is also helping the site. I haven't asked anyone for links yet, just set it up on my site and am taking links that others request.
I'm using Arelis.
Other MAJOR help:
I changed my PHPbb forums to have static URL, which made them Google friendly... which has also helped. Even though people are going to my forums, and the forums don't have ads (too few clicks to be worth it), the forums are linked all over to the main site with does show ads.
Yes and double yes! I hate it when people steal my content... ugh!
Now, about duplicate content being downgraded... So what if I allow other websites to use my content if they link back? Or what if I accept content from other people on the condition that I link back?
Some of this has helped for me. While almost all my content is written by me & original, I do have a few pages that were submitted from others...
By the way havent seen the looks of my first check yet but expected in couple of days.
I check the stats more then 20 times a day, mostly to check if there is some unusual activity.
I have a whole range of ideas now which might work well but no time to implement due to my current job. The often cases of innocent looking people scares me and thats the only reason I havent left my current job yet and gone fulltime on website development. But hope to see some better protection in short future.
Thanks to Big G and ww. I love you all
So what if I allow other websites to use my content if they link back?
Be careful with this. Google serps can't discern who has the original content. If the page using your content has a higher ranking, Google will assume they have the original content.
Changing your forum urls to static was a great idea! (Not an easy task, I know.) We don't put Adsense on forum either, they are too "chatty" in there, and click around alot.
Best of luck on your journey, you are definitely heading in the right direction. :)
I've read the people talking about his experiences here and I'll try the horizontal links unit. Its fit the page design and is not agresssive.
My best day gets 5.05 dolares, my average is around 1.1$
My site have an average of 3000 uniques and 7200 hits per day (this is not equal of google Page impressions in report, please, its the public stats so you have have an idea of my traffic.
