How I Doubled One Blog's Adsense Earnings in One Month

This year, I have been experimenting with my blogs and my earnings.   My goal is to create over $1000.00 a month in adsense earnings without having to kill myself creating new content.  So I took one of my blogs and created lots and lots of backlinks to see if having more pages ranking on the first page of Google would increase adsense earnings.  Check out my findings!

These two steps dramatically effected the amount of adsense I earned from just one blog. 

1.  Did a lot of link building.
I created backlinks to more than half of my blog's posts.  I made sure to use the best keywords for each post.  This alone will increase your targeted traffic.  Targeted traffic is not only the best type of traffic for conversion, they usually are not "adsense blind".  When most of your readers are bloggers, your adsense ads will be ignored.  That's just the way it is.

2.  Changed the layout of my site.
I was amazed at how just changing the layout of my site increased the clickthrough dramatically.   A simple design can sometimes be more profitable.

I can't believe how much money I was missing out on!  Who would have thought that these two simple steps could have increased my Adsense earnings so much.

I challenge you to go build some links using blog memes, blog carnivals or blog commenting.  Keep track of your progress.  Then come back and post your results here.  You will see a huge difference!

Two great tips. Will you be following up to let us know how you're doing to reach your goal of over $1000.00 a month in adsense earnings?

In tip 1, I assume you took individual post's urls and backlinked (with keyword anchor text) them on other websites. That is good advice. Can you explain which sites you used to backlink?

Tip 2 about simplicity in design is also a good one. If anyone has seen The Drudge Report website, they would agree with you. That site design is so basic, so simple yet it earns the owner several million dollars a year in ad revenue alone.

$1000 is possible, but very difficult if you focus on one niche. You should either run a huge, general blog, or build a set of minisites targeting long-tail keywords.

This really shows that there's a money in the internet. May it be through selling or just merely blogging. I ma doing this for quite some time now and I am happy with the results.

Yes it can be use for any kind of website. It's not just for simple website or blog, you can also use it for eCommerce website and even photoblogs. You can also use it for community use.
You can also use free SEO tools online.

If profits are the main objectives of the website- by that, i mean by ads- then these things are definitely worth a try.

I agree with Louis. It will take a long time and much exerted SEO effort to achieve $1000 via Google Adsense. You may want to run different campaigns or launch other related websites.

According to a SEO company I've talked to, your goal is possible. However, it will take time. As we all know, search engine traffic is unpredictable.

I can also suggest by posting your blog through social media sites so people browsing around social media can bump into your blog and hopefully they will share.

I know what you mean by better earnings with a few layout tweaks. My friend, who works in dental web design, can make a "blah" looking dentist homepage into something amazing that can convert callers into sales.
