    Hi community,

    I am wondering what is your opinion on this topic.
    I will start a web site and i already have huge fan base that i can forward onto it. So i was wondering, what will work better. Is instant articles better cause it's just for visiting the page or google adsense for actually clicking on an advertisement.
    Also i am aware of combining them both, to use IA for mobile users and adsense for computer users, but i just need an advise to move on.

    Bests, Rokit.

    So you're asking if you should send users to crappy content just with the intent to gain revenue or if you should provide content that actually provides value?

    You should only use high-quality unique content as there are quality guidelines that you need to follow when signing up to be an AdSense publisher.

    Also, you don't want to lose your audience by sending them to copied or spun content as this will result in a poor user-experience and would also result in a drop in your ad revenue.

    Unique and engaging content will keep visitors on your site for a longer duration which increases the likelihood of getting clicks on your ads.

    Well, content is not the issue, i have unique content and already very good working web site. Now i just want to redirect them from my FB fan page to the web site, i just don't know what is better to use.

    That is the primary reason for me making this thread.


    Thanks for the answer though.

    I don't want to sound mean or something, but what has this to do with the Original-Post? I re-read the post and there's nothing suggesting he has bad content, he's just asking whether to use ad-sense in mobile or not, where did you get he has bad content?

    As for the question, I have no experience with Instant Articles so I cannot give a solid advice. You should be aware, though, that mobile users are the ones who browse the web the most, in most niches, so you would be sacrificing most of your revenue. Isn't instant articles more for a search engine driven traffic, if you're going to get most of your traffic from Facebook, why not stick with Adsense?

    Thanks very much for the explanation. I already applied for instant articles and i already have google adsense account. I will be following both platforms and i will post responses here.
    Hopefully it'll all came well.

    Thanks again for the opinion.

    PS : if anyone else have practical experience, please share.

    Instant article become more famous these days, maybe FB has changed it's Ad Network and is now more competitive against Adsense.

    But if you want to make money with quality content, Adsense is still the best choice. Your website is something you own, if you write articles in Facebook your content is owned by facebook.

    And by my experience you will have better RPM with adsense.

    - Probably i should proceed with this topic as a mini journey of the first month.
    So here we go:

    Day 1:

    [​IMG]

    We shared 5 links on our 400k fan page, this is the total for the first 24 hours. I plan to raising the links up to 10 per day just to check how the audience is responding.
    Day 1 was not like i was expecting, but we hope for the best.

    If some moderator is checking this, please transfer it to Journey section.

    PS: Any advise will be good, starting real fresh with this one.

    Day 2:

    [​IMG]

    Again very similar day to the previous one, still going in with 5 links and with articles only. I am also aware that Articles are not appearing when you go directly on the website and there are no ads when entering from a computer.
    I already have active Adsense, so i plan in mixing both platforms, to have mobile users from FB and computer users with Adsense. Hopefully Adsense will appear better, because at the moment at the state that i am in, ranking on google is not doing nothing to me.
    For now i just want to check out how this will work and in near future if google is better, puchase SEO pack from our forum.

    Hope you will like the journey, posting again tomorrow this time ;)


    Bests, Rokit

    You should use both, Instant Articles are good.

    Yea, weird indeed. But i firstly started the post as a question on community's opinion, but since i already have working material, i decided to switch it to a journey. I'll try to get the topic changed, thanks for notice :)

    Day 3:

    [​IMG]

    Still learning the people on the fan page what they like mostly. It seems that it would take a little bit longer to investigate in order to raise the visits on the website. Still working out how should i implement Adsense, because i do not have much text. Posts are based more on pictures at the moment, cause they react on that and visit.
    I guess google wants unique material, to be SEO responsive.
    Posted 6 links, but the response is lower than day 2. Looks like they don't like content with many words, better reacting on galleries.

    I'll keep you posted!

    Day 4:
    [​IMG]

    7 links
    were shared from the website, we are getting more and more likes and shares. It looks like people are getting used to seeing links on the fan page. Before this link was never shared on this page, only videos and photos. Adsense was added, but removed because the ads were not mobile compatible and the website messed itself when seen on phone and tablet. I checked out some tutorials on how to set it up so tonight it's going to be all good with adsense too.
    So now, Instant articles will be shown on mobile users and Google Adsense will be shown to PC user, already tested. Still not satisfied with the estimated revenue, but i guess we are going up and up.

    Bests, Rokit

    Day 5:

    [​IMG]

    It's getting better a bit! This is totally motivating and pushing to move on harder. I posted 5 links only today, but the response is twice better than with 7 links. I guess people are more and more used to the links on the web. Google adsense was successfully applied and got some response there too.

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I hope it will be better and better, building it to a stable 20$ profit daily. I will be testing with more links to see how the audience is responding to higher frequency of link posts.
    I'll keep you updated!

    Bests, Rokit.

    Day 6:

    [​IMG]

    Finally we broke over $1 barrier :)
    It's a nice feeling to see first milestones passed over.
    The weekend will be a test period also, posted 12 links, total income for the whole day it's on the picture above.
    People don't wanna read, people wanna watch and scroll faster, so galleries are doing their work, converting nicely at the moment.
    Tomorrow again will go with 12 links, to check the response. After that we'll lower the amount of links, to check their response.
    Google Adsense is more passive, since 80% of the traffic comes trough Facebook fan page, so goes with Instant articles.

    Also from today we'll be working on scraping good facebook groups in our niche, so we can post there and drive traffic to the website.
    Following the instructions from this post: https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/how-to-get-200-targeted-visitors-from-fb-daily.932386/

    I'll keep you updated.

    I'm feeling down today. No cow?

    -

    I'm not sure if you are using instant articles and adsense but it's possible, try it.

    Which is better:
    Instant article is still new, while adsense is established. What I earn from instant article is nothing compared to adsense but then, you can't trust adsense as your only source of income. They ban publishers whenever they want. I have not seen anyone getting banned from instant articles (yet).

    Summing up: Using both of them is the best combination. Both of them have their pro's and con's.

    This past 10 days is crappy, before that it was okay. Periodically while FB is making updates this is happening + the quality of the fan page is big matter too.
