I keep seeing questions regarding how to make more money off Adsense on this and other forums. Here's my quick blueprint for OPTIMAL ADSENSE income. If you blog without paying attention to these factors, you won't be making much money off adsense. Element #1: Blog about niches that have a HIGH CPC rate - anything related to financial topics / insurance / legal / some health niches Element #2: Get traffic primarily from Tier 1 countries like the US, UK, Canada, etc Element #3: Focus on PAGEVIEWS - the more pages, the better because this increases the likelihood of a click How do you implement this? Step 1: Reverse engineer existing blogs in your niche - focus on the SAME TOPICS they're focusing on Step 2: Come up with your own UNIQUE spin - ie., if the top blogs in your niche are talking about insurance, talk about SCARY insurance stories that involve the same topics. The big difference is your stuff is SCARY. Step 3: Share on FB groups and other distribution platforms your competitors use - no need to reinvent the wheel. You can use MassPlanner to automate distribution. Step 4: Set up your posts so they are broken up by multiple pages - near the end, say something dramatic to PUSH the reader to keep clicking the next page link. This drives up page views and reduces bounce rate. Step 5: Set up a GEO-IP squeeze page - only people from the US will see the squeeze page- build this list and send news of your HOTTEST or MOST CONTROVERSIAL posts to this list to get a nice SURGE in Tier 1 traffic Step 6: Keep experimenting with your theme to see which theme gets the most clicks Blogging for Adsense requires ATTENTION TO DETAIL - you also have to focus on the LONG TERM.
