    Not something I usually bother with anymore but just before Christmas I noticed in my site stats that one of my sites was receiving more visitors than I thought. Not a huge amount, averaging eighty people a day but I had honestly not given it much thought.

    I run approx.33 sites out of which I update three of them daily, six of them once a week and the rest just get a post once a month or once every two months if I am really lazy.

    Anyway, I saw a post on another forum and I implemented what this guy had said but I wanted to do it on a site that didn't matter to me that much - just in case it all went tits. I did this on the 22nd Dec and I checked adsense this morning (as I was looking to implement it on another site) and noticed the increase in income.

    Funnily enough, up until April 2013 I was earning about £2,200 a month from adsense but my site disappeared overnight, as did my earnings from that, so haven't really bothered with it since.

    I will post the method which he did (and which I copied) on here later...It's not rocket science (think silos) but I need some time to write it out because out of respect to BHW, I won't give the name of the other forum.

    And lastly, I couldn't post in the adsense forum as it is being revamped.

    Hope no-one is thinking I've got the secret sauce here. It's only common sense - wish I could say it's a complex set of whistles and bells but I'm not that clever, plus it's not my idea.
    I will post the original version tomorrow but honestly, don't wet your pants thinking I've found the holy grail because I haven't but it worked for me.

    The reason the site disappeared? I have no idea (it went from position 2/3 on page 1 to page 9 which is the same thing and it still hovers around there today. Prob animal related because my link profile was as spammy as spam can be and I was a big fan of 10/12% keyword density at the time (I know, I know...)

    I will stick it on here tomorrow

    Please share it. I would love to see what you did. Congrats, and between, if you implement it on a second site and it works. You have found the holy grail after all :)

    Ok, before I go into detail, a couple of points you need to know.

    1. I am not an adsense guru in any way, shape or form.
    2. What worked for me might not work for you.
    3. There is nothing in here that will get your adsense account banned, it's just a common sense approach
    4. I only followed his content creation example, not his linkbuilding or social media strategy but I will post what he did here anyway in case you want to follow it to the letter.
    5. The guy who wrote this 'won' a SEO competition on another forum and I've read his posts - he seems pretty legit.
    6. This is a long post so I will split it into two parts.
    7. THIS IS NOT MY IDEA SO I CAN'T TAKE CREDIT FOR IT

    And finally, it goes without saying but your site must have content, good on-page SEO, privacy policy, address, etc.This site of mine has 72 pages/posts of content, about 50,000 words'ish.

    This is what I did next - this is copied verbatim from the tutorial.

    Each keyword has its' page, so I ranked pages (not categories or posts). The permalinks are /%postname% and each page's URL consists of simply domain.com/keyword.
    I started each page's title tag with the keyword and used the keyword in the beginning of the body text, in the alt tag of an image and in an anchor of a link to an authority source. MY NOTE: I also place a related keyword in the caption text of an image

    Each page has about 400-600 words of content. I wrote the articles myself and did not aim at making them long or keyword-oriented. MY NOTE: My pages had a min.700 words content. Follow BassTrackerBoats guide to http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/link-building/686714-using-keyword-research-when-building-authority-sites.html and you won't go wrong.


    Interlinking and outgoing links
    As I said, I created a page for each keyword, and my frontpage is a static page as well. The blog part of the site is actually hidden from the visitors (just a small plain text link to it in the footer) since I was planning to fill it up with scraped & spun content with the only purpose of pumping the pages of the site. I actually felt a bit bad for every visitor who landed on one of the blog posts.
    Obviously if you are willing to spend more money then blog posts have to be nicely written and engaging, I only banged out fast spun posts for the sake of ranking faster & cheaper.
    MY NOTE: I only used original content written by me, only because the site would have looked odd suddenly having spun content.

    Once again, this was the site structure: there are 5 pages, 1 page per keyword. Each page has a corresponding category of blog posts, the posts are dripped daily over a month or so, each post has a link to the related page.

    MY NOTE: This is my slight variation as I only wrote 3 posts for each page, not 5but as each of my 3 posts had about 800 words content, I had approx.2,400 words pointing to each page I was targeting. I posted all my content over 2 days.

    KEYWORD PAGE 1. 3 POSTS THEN LINK TO THIS PAGE. ALL POSTS ARE IN THE SAME CATEGORY. THEN EACH POST IS LINKED TO EACH OF THE OTHER POSTS IN THAT CATEGORY. IMPORTANT - DON'T LINK TO ANOTHER CATEGORY.
    See attached image.

    Make sure that you link out to other sites outside of your site - obviously only sites or pages that are related to your niche. MY NOTE: The original author of this makes a good point - don't always link out to sites like Wikipedia or BBC or CNN because everyone does that (I was guilty) and I see his point. If my link is among a CNN and Wikipedia link, then it may look a little spammy.
    He also suggest sticking your keyword in the news tab of G and see what comes up so you can link to a relevant and fresh story - sounds good to me.

    MY NOTE:
    I have never really bothered with categories before - certainly not to the degree that he did as I thought any link from 1 blog post to another - regardless of its category - was fine. I have changed my mind now.

    I will post another part to this re:his social media and linkbuilding strategy - none of which I did but to be fair, his was a brand new domain/site and mine was 6 years old.

    Thanks

    For all the people PM'ing me, please understand that there is no secret sauce to making adsense work...No trickery...No games...Just hard work.

    It works like this.

    Getting more people to see your site = more chance of people clicking on your ads = Adsense revenue.

    That's it.

    Yes, you can play around with the ad placements and so on but it comes down to this (as it does with most online strategies)...The more people that see your site, the more chance you have of earning money.

    One final note: Make sure you choose a niche that will pay well...Seems pointless to me creating a site where each click will earn you just 0.06.

    I am not sure if I understand correctly the structure. I will show how I see it.

    You have got 72 pages and url to each page is: domain/page_keyword1, domain/page_keyword2, ..., domain/page_keyword72.
    Frontpage with its url "domain" is a static with link to different pages (link to domain/page_keyword1, domain/page_keyword2, ...) and then comes the blog part.
    Do you make it like domain/blog/category1, domain/blog/category2 ..., domain/blog/category72 and then put 3 blog-posts in each category which links to its page? For instace: domain/blog/category1 {post1, post2, post3} -- links to --> domain/page_keyword1?

    So do you drip blogposts everyday over a month or you post whole content (including blogposts) in just 2 days?
    And why don't put normal links on frontpage to the blog page? Should it remain kind a hidden?
