Self SEO > Google Adsense Articles
Google Adsense is a hot topic in the Internet Marketing arena these day’s and rightfully so. Adsense is drastically increasing the income generated from content driven websites.
If you do not already know, Adsense is the publisher’s side to Googles advertising program. Website and blog publishers can place adsense code on their content pages that will automatically display ads related to the content on that page. If you own a website or blog, and place the code on your content pages you can paid every time someone clicks on a google adsense ad. One thing that makes Google adsense so powerful is that clicks can be worth anything from a few pennies to several dollars per click.
If you already have a website that is packed full of quality content, then adsense would be a perfect match. However, if your website is currently short on content, there are ways to beef it up with quality content. Quality content is not only a great way to get customers to your site and keep them coming back, but you can also generate a good consistent income utilizing Google adsense.
When adding content to your website, keep in mind it is against Google’s Terms of Service to create pages strictly for the sole purpose of generating income from adsense. To keep yourself out of trouble be sure to add other functions to the page such as a couple of affiliate ads related to the content, and or a form for visitors to sign up to your email list.
The best content is content you create yourself such as product reviews or articles, but if you just don’t have the time to write everything yourself, there are thousands of articles with reprint rights available that you can use on your website free of charge. Articles like this can be found at sites like www.ezinearticles.com and www.articlecity.com . Most of these articles have only a few restrictions such as you must leave the article intact and leave the authors resource box with the article.
Reprint articles are great but one problem with them is duplicate content. Search engines are really cracking down on duplicate pages. When using reprint articles it is best to add extra content to the page, preferably keyword rich content. This can be time consuming but it is well worth it. To save time I created a PHP article manager (that I recently made available to the public at http://www.articlebooster.com) that is template driven and search engine friendly that automatically inserts my google adsense code as well as keyword rich content to my articles every time I add one, (which keeps me in from getting into duplicate content trouble). I also added a content rotator that makes it easy to rotate affiliate banners and adds throughout my article pages.
If you are not using adsense on your content site, signup now! And if you are not using quality articles to create a content site that gets more visitors and keeps them, start it right now, you will be glad you did.
