Google AdSense is a cost-effective way for bloggers to earn money from their work. If you think you're already doing it the correct way, it's worth reading a few tips to indicate what works. This guest post on the AdSense blog indicates a number of ideas that it's worth considering, and at the very least, as a refresher.
Before I made my first blog post, I spent six months researching the blogs that received the most traffic from Google organic search. I identified the specific tactics from over 70 high traffic blogs. Then I ranked the tactics by the most productive, and I eliminated the bottom 80%. This is what I built my blogging system upon. Within four months of launching the blog, I had surpassed 100,000 monthly visitors. Today, my blog receives over 2 million monthly visitors.

These tips include some very obvious suggestions which are often overlooked in favour of just one or two: Keyword research, compelling titles, engaging content, and gaining high quality links.

Thank you for pointing the adsense post! I have not visited the adsense blog for a while. Their team actually did do some useful posts after browsing through a bit.

[brandongaille.com ]

This is the original link from the adsense blog. Great points and great refresher. I follow many of these guidelines without consciously thinking about them anymore.

PS. Although we are not supposed to oust people on their sites out of nowhere. But I think my catch here is justified since this guy has just been featured by Adsense blog and all as role model per se.

Visiting the site on mobile has a rectangle unit fully viewable on mobile above the fold pushing the content after the title. Opps for Adsense!

Edit: Actually I reread adsense policy: Publishers may not implement Google ads in a manner that disguises the ads in any way. In order to maintain a good user experience, it is important for publishers to clearly distinguish Google ads from site content. This includes, but is not limited to: site layouts in which the ads push content below the fold on mobile devices; placing 300x250 or larger ad units above the fold on a mobile optimized site.

Guess you can get away with that with a smaller rectangle 250x250 unit? And just show 2 sentences?

I am a little bitter about receiving notices on some of my legacy sites with 10 pv per "month" to fix the pages.

Sorry, mobile sites that load 2 or more large block adds before any of the content I wanted to read, are the type of site that drives me away.

Delete if you need to mods!

Arghhhh...WTF is this?

Is this aimed at a predominantly USA market?

This does nothing for me however I am NOT a blogger, I have extremely successful realworld business websites, this is nothing more than spam in my opinion.

Are people, in general, really interested in this type of stuff?

Shoot me down if you want to, this is garbage of the first order insofar as I am concerned!

Nice of Adsense to send us to a site that is actively breaching their own T&Cs.

OK I looked at that AdSense link - "How to Earn Money From AdSense With a Blog"

Can anyone tell me it is even remotely better - or even matches - Brett Tabke's brilliant article here on WebmasterWorld from way back in February, 2002? That was 14 years ago - considered several human lifetimes in internet terms.

Successful Site in 12 Months with Google Alone
26 steps to 15k a day

Is it possible there is anyone here who has not yet read that instructive article, even recommended it?.

Now this Blog genius is offering...

Looking at Tabke's article most of it is still relevant to day, some more so since the rise in mobile use. One thing to remember about his financial estimate is that back then visitors were more likely to click on ads. This month my Adsense earnings will be about a quarter of what I would have made in those days despite now having twice the traffic.

Looking at the comments below the original article the author actually warns against using free blogging services (such as Google's I assume).
