Published by Timothy Olson — 10-28-2018 at 10:43 AM UTC
How to increase Google Adsense earnings? This is a question I hear all the time. There are hundreds of articles on the web that talk about the best strategies for success.
Personally, I think you need to know 7 important things to increase Google Adsense earnings so it becomes a steady stream of passive income.
It is good to remember that every website / blog has a unique design and layout. A strategy that works for one site, will necessarily not work for your site. It is important to test different ad placements to see what generates the most click throughs for your site.
7 Strategies For How To Increase Google Adsense Earnings
Here below are some of the best tips and strategies you can use to increase your earnings over time.
#1. High quality, unique content is KING!
Focus on writing high quality content that is useful for the readers. By publishing fresh, unique, interesting content regularly, you increase the chances of getting found in the search results. Publishing content on your site that is already indexed by the search engines is useless, search engines will not index duplicate content.
More traffic to your site will result in more clicks on your Google Adsense ads (= more money for you!) Interesting and helpful content will be shared on social media sites by the readers, so it is a good idea to create the best possible content you can. Top 10 lists and "how-to-do-something" - articles work really well and gets shared a lot.
Writing high quality content will bring targeted traffic to your site. However, if you want to increase Google Adsense earnings quickly, you need to write about the right things. This means you have to choose a niche with high paying keywords and relatively low to medium competition.
To find the best keywords, you will need to use a keyword tool. It is impossible to guess the right keyword phrases to use, you need to be absolute sure about it or you will be wasting your time. Choosing a phrase with high competition means that you will probably not rank on the first page of Google and other search engines. Choosing a phrase with very low competition means that there is no market for it.

(Many successful bloggers write about things they love and know a lot about, they are not concerned about high paying keywords. They earn an income from Google Adsense thanks to hundreds of articles that are posted on their sites over a long time period, not through a few carefully selected niche keywords that may or may not earn several dollars (or a lot more!) per click.)
#2. Always play by the rules!
When you have at least 15 high, quality articles posted on your site, you can apply for a Google Adsense account. If you are approved, you will be able to post Adsense ads on your site. Before you start monetizing your site, it is very important to know about the Adsense program policies and guidelines. All publishers are required to adhere with the policies. The policies can change, so it is important to stay up-to-date.
Here are a few important links:
- Google Adsense terms and conditions
- Google Adsense ad placement policies
- Inside Adsense - The Official Blog
The official blog is the best place to keep up with what is happening. The blog shares lots of helpful tips and advice, you can also ask questions.
#3. Ad placement is very important!
Where to place the ads for best results? I mentioned earlier that every blog/website has a unique layout. It is a very good idea to test the best placements regularly to see what works. Advertisements are often placed up on the page (above the content or in the sidebar), but when a person comes to your site looking for content their attention is focused on the content.
I have noticed that for mobile users, the best ad placement is directly below the content. For those who surf the web using a normal computer, the best ad placement is inline with the content or directly below the content.
Having ads below the content works really well because if the website visitor cannot find what he or she is looking for on your site, they just may click an Adsense ad on the way out.
#4. Become a YouTube partner!
You can increase Google Adsense earnings by becoming a YouTube partner. This video shares how you can apply and what is required.
#5. Use Adsense For Search!
You can add a custom search bar to your blog. This helps the visitor find what they are looking for and adds another way to monetize your site with Adsense. When someone makes a search, there will be Google Adsense ads on top of the results page.
#6. Use Mobile Ads!
People search for information online mostly with their mobile phones and other mobile devices. It is very important to make your blog mobile friendly and to use responsive Google Adsense ads. For Wordpress users (self hosted) there is a great plugin called WPTouch that instantly makes your site mobile friendly.
#7. Learn from the experts!
Many people are making a full-time income using only Google Adsense. These people make a lot of money every month, so if you are looking to do the same thing it is important to learn from them. There is a lot of information available on the web about ways to increase Google Adsense earnings.
Joel Comm, a famous Internet marketer and New York Times Best-Selling author, earns a lot of money with Google Adsense. He has written a book called "Google Adsense Secrets - What Google Never Told You About Making Money With Adsense". He shares inside secrets, strategies and techniques that you need to know in order to make the most out of it.
Increase Google Adsense Earnings - Final Thoughts, Tips And Tricks
Earning more money from Google Adsense is really not that difficult but it will require some time, effort and investment. It will take time to write useful content for your readers regularly, it will take some effort to find the right keywords and you need to invest a little money in a self hosted Wordpress blog.
Sure, there are "free" blogs out there, but in order to make a professional blog and earn money from it long term, you will need to invest some money into a domain name and web hosting. The investment is very small. You can get hosting for around $10 per month and a domain name for $15 per year.
When your blog is up and running, all you need to do is writing useful, high quality content regularly for your readers. The more you have content on your site, the more opportunities you have to monetize with Google Adsense.
About Timothy Olson
Welcome! My name is Timothy Olson. I have been working online since 2003 and currently I earn a full-time living from home. I became an Internet marketer by mistake, I got unemployed and had to figure out a way to pay the bills and put food on the table. When I started my "IM journey" I had no idea that Internet marketing could be so hard, 99% of the information out there is total B*** S***. There are no shortcuts to making money online. I have tried most of the "systems" available (including those that promise instant riches over night), and needless to say, they didn´t work. When I realized that list building is the key, things started happening for me. Today, I know a lot when it comes to SEO, email list building, blogging, affiliate marketing, traffic generation (free and paid) and earning a living from home in general. Earning a living from home takes a lot of hard work and determination (at least in the beginning). Eventually you will see results if you work towards your goal. The video by Zig Ziglar here below motivates and inspires me to work harder. Check it out!
