Google Adsense continues to make a huge impact on the affiliate marketing industry. Because of their dominance, weak affiliate merchants have the tendency to die faster than ever and ad networks are losing their customers at a record pace.
If you are not seeing the results that you expected from you affiliate program participation, it may be time for you to consider going into Adsense, as the potential for earning real cash awaits.
Google is readily providing well written and highly relevant ads that are closely chosen to match the content on your pages. The search engine will be searching for you, so you do not have to look for the ads.
Below are other reasons why Google Adsense is perfect:
1. You do not have to spend time in choosing different types of ads for different pages.
2. There is no code to set-up, which is often the case for affiliate marketing programs.
3. You will be able to concentrate on providing good quality content, as the search engine will be finding the best ads to place on your pages
4. You are still allowed to add Adsense ads even if you already have affiliate links on your site. Note – It is prohibited, however, to imitate the look and feel of the Google ads for your affiliate links.
5. You can filter up to 200 URLs. That gives you a chance to block ads for the sites that do not meet your guidelines. You can also block competitors.
Owners of small websites are allowed to include code into their sites that instantly produce relevant text ads that may appeal to your website visitors. The ads can appear almost immediately on your website pages. If you own many sites, you only need to apply once. This is a real bonus, and makes up for having to apply to many affiliate marketing programs.
Once you are accepted into Adsense, you are in until you remove the code from your pages. The payment rates can vary extremely. The payment you will be receiving per click depends on how much advertisers are paying per click to advertise with the use of the AdWords. Advertisers can pay as little as 5 cents and as high as $10-12, sometimes even more. You earn a share of the money generated.
If your results remain stagnant, it may help if you build simple and uncluttered pages so that the ads can catch the visitor’s eyes more. It sometimes pays to differ from the usual things that people are doing already. In addition, it can be refreshing for your visitors to see new and fresh content.
Publishers also have the option of choosing to have their ads displayed only on select websites. It is also allowed to have them displayed on a large network of sites. Your decision should be made factoring in what you think will work best.
Research select Adsense ads by seeing if they are directed to websites/pages similar to the material/content you are planning to produce. It is important to note that you cannot choose certain topics only. If you do this, it is likely that the search engines will not place Adsense ads on your website and you will be missing out on the great Adsense money making opportunity.
I strongly suggest that you avoid the following topics: gambling, firearms, ammunition, tobacco and/or drugs. In closing, Adsense is simply a win-win situation for all parties involved, the content website owners, the webmasters and/or publishers, and of course, Google. Now is the time to sign-up for Google Adsense.
