    I had a friend look at one of my autoBl0gs and asked her what would she do to increase the amount of Ad$ense clicks.

    She said, make a tag above the the ads saying "Please do not click on the ads below". So I put the tag above the ads and got more than 3 times the average day clicks.

    After two weeks I took the tag down, don't want to mess with Big G' TOS.

    The clicks dropped, but I still getting more click than before the tag.

    The internet, what a odd cat you are! :)

    Yeah, it did.
    I'm starting to think the internet is being run by "something" that is trying to make me crazy!

    Example, the first autobl0g I made was Super Spammy and Butt Ugly.
    My second autobl0g is a professional looking site made from a template.

    The first autobl0g gets about 14 UV a day and the second has over 200 UV daily. The Butt Ugly site is making two times more money than the second site.

    So I scale up the Butt Ugly site and get no traffic on the new Butt Ugly sites.
    Oh well, one of these day I'll get it right. :chairshot

    Google should not banned that site. because this "Please do not click on the ads below". The Tos said if you insert like this "Please do click on the ads below". Both are really different :D

    this is a good idea.

    Not a good idea at all. Do you think that Google won't ban someone over this? I am not willing to risk my adsense income on a few pennies. If you want to, then go for it, but don't say you didn't know a ban could come.

    Google are'mt stupid, its reverse psycology, and the net effect is encouraging those who otherwise wouldn't to click your ads

    if you have a shit looking site, people will want to get off it so will click the ads to get away, this is why shit sites are better for adsnese

    if you have a shit looking site, there will also be more focus on the ads then on the content/looks, which is obv what you're looking for ;)

    That's true, Google says they want excellent quality sites, but they don't paid the bills. The Spammy sites are still getting hits.

    Some of you may disagree but imo, google has actually hurt online advertising revenues for online publishers and website owners through its CTR/CPC model. And this is the main reason why they are making so much money. They're leveraging the efforts of spammy publishers to make themselves money. Meanwhile, they're telling everyone to publish good content. This is a blackhat business model. The advertisers aren't exactly getting good conversions either as you've noticed over the years.

    In other words, google is actually the biggest broker of text link ads. The reason why they devalue other sites using other text link brokers is because they're in direct competition with them, not necessarily because the sites are "cheating" for backlinks. But if you're using adsense on your sites with lots of traffic, you're basically giving the value of your sites away based on how many people click out.

    The value is being thrown out because you might as well make and sell your own info-products to make even more money or build a list but rather, you leave it up to google for dollars and cents.

    So when you break your site down, each word on your adsense site has low value. You want it to be low value on purpose so the visitor will click away. If it's high value information, then you wouldn't even need google. You would build a list and sell your services or products because readers follow sites that have extremely rich content.

    It's clever on google's part but also very blackhat.

    Now about google "destroying" the online advertising revenues for publishers, it's estimated that it takes around 7-10 times of mentioning the product/brand for someone to buy. If you base that on google's CTR and CPC model, then someone may see the ad 6 times on 6 different sites but the 7th site will get the credit for the sale when the visitor clicks through. The other 6 publishers lose out of the sale. This goes for adwords as well.

    Profit is generated on a click per cost basis, rather than than ad impressions in the offline world. Ad impressions are used primarily for branding. Revenue based on ad impressions have been devalued because publishers don't seem to care so much about branding. That's because relationship marketing takes more work. Many online companies that were started during the early 2000s only cared about the direct sale, which gave google the idea of using the CTR model instead, leaving ad impression model useless or extremely devalued online. This is why publishers are shooting themselves in the foot. The other problem is that their are no barriers to entry so everyone is looking for that one shot sale, rather than long term branding.

    One you throw out the ad impression model of advertising online, you're giving google the ultimate hand and you're forced to depend on google for that quick buck.

    The upside is that many companies are starting to realize the power of branding online so they don't have to depend on google.

    It's about dividing the pie. Google knows that in order to take a larger piece of the pie, they have to take value away from the publisher first.

    Many companies in the offline world have made a lot of money through the ad impression model and direct sponsoring of athletes, sports events, and other promotional events. They don't pay by the cent or dollar for every product they sell. They pay for the time and space of the ad in a location. That's what branding is. That approach is rejected online.

    This conditions businesses to shy away from providing good valuable content through long-term branding, and encourages many fly-by marketers and google snipers to come up with producing MFA sites for that quick buck.

    My conclusion is that google is perhaps one of the biggest contributers of content spamming online. Clever on google's part but also a bit deceptive in the long term. Google definitely took a bigger share of the pie and they know it.

    Wrong, the issue is bringing undue attention to the ads that causes a ban.

    If google caught it, there would be a problem.

    Curious people are some times funny, nice try but "Please do not click on the ads below" or "Please do click on the ads below" are still the same, dude better stay a way from this if you want to keep your adsense account .

    G00gle has an automatic system that detect this kind of text within the ads, so you won't be surprised if they catch you sooner than later .

    Correct. You can't even have any pictures that look as if they are pointing towards your ads.

    Like I said before tags are already down, and the overall clicks are still up.
    Will is put the tags up again, nope. Big G is the big guy for now and I not about to step on Superman Cape. Once Yahoo and Bing merge maybe we'll see soon real change in the CTR/CPC market.

    By the way I just put up a new spammy site, this morning. I just check the adsense account and the MFer is killing my old clean site. Looks like I'm going to continue spamming up sites until I can make and sell my own product.

    If you know how to use Big G adw0rd$ you can end up landing on your competition's landing page and better yet in their customer freakin Emails.

    No, Big G is not a publisher friendly, in fact their kind of Evil.

    Yes...an evil and "all" knee's of him.

    If the TOS say: its not allowed that you post: Please click on the ads, is that the point and nothing other, and this means NOT: Please click NOT on the ads.

    Pychologic ... pff, the TOS are clear

    you're already getting traffic that clicks on ads, in one day?? wow. then u don't really need help, sounds like u are doing something right. Sure it may not be the way you would think it works, but at least u are getting clicks.

    I think for a good looking, USEFUL CONTENT site, you;d have to have tons of traffic to really make any money at it. and in that case, with tons of traffic, selling stuff (through other types of ads), rather than goog ads, is probably the better way to go.

    If I make a thousand dollars a day, I'll still need help.

    The point of my post was to share a odd happening on the site.
    I know some folks come here and lie about their sites, but I'm not one of them.

    Over the last two months, I have spend 5 to 6 hours a day reading WSO, and the entire thread of section on this forum. I've learn a lot and had a rough start, but I did not quick.

    My system is simple:

    1. Find a good Wordpress Templetes that is easy to set up.
    2. Use SEO Plugins, cause I would be lost without them
    3. Use G00gle Trends for keywords and super fast traffic.
    4. Setup Aut0bl0gged for G00gle Trends keyword content.
    5. Find forums 4 G00gle Trends keywords, leave good comments and site URL.
    6. Setup up 10 to 20 linksbacks for G00gle Trends Keyword.
    7. Create a new G amil account for G00gle Trends Keyword.
    8. Use G amil account to setup your linkwheel.
    9. Do it now, folks are looking for that key word now.

    Done

    It's really not that weird. Reverse psychology works on pretty much everything.

    luckily you didn't get banned because that might be against the TOS.

    all that matters to google is that the visitor is genuinely interested in whatever's on the other side of the ad. so in that sense any psychological tricks are against the TOS, unless you actually make the visitor more interested in the ad somehow, then it's all good.
