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!
