How SimpleAdsense Can Help You

I have not talked much about myself on any of my websites, at least the ones that I have tried to get serious about. In January of this year I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, if you do not know anything about MS just let me say that it can be a horribly debilitating disease, I say can be because many people do live a fairly normal life after being diagnosed with MS. I am not one of the lucky ones!

I am unable to work right now and of course need a way to support my family, naturally I turned to the Internet to try and earn a living. When I first started, about 4 months ago, I had no idea what I was doing. I had a little html knowledge from years ago when I used to build personal sites on Geocities but as we all know things have changed considerably since then. I am not an Internet newbie but I am for from a website designer nor did I have any knowledge on how to make money online with Adsense or any other type of program nor did I know anything about SEO, how to get quality targeted traffic to your website or anything else it takes to make real money online.

I started a couple free blogs following the advice that I had learned which was to create sites about what you are interested in. One of the sites was on coin collecting and the other was on MS, two things I know a little about. They both failed miserably. The more I started learning what I really needed to do the more I decided to get more serious about making real money online.
I had spent many, many hours trying to learn everything that I can about how to make real money online and realized how much information there is and how the information is spread all over the Internet. That is why I started SimpleAdsense.com, to try and bring all this incredible free information to one place and make it easy for people who are new to making money online to find all the useful information that I was learning without having to spend hours looking for the information, hopefully I am accomplishing that. This site will probably not help someone who already has a very good understanding of SEO and making real money online, but if you are one of the people who are just like I was then you can get an incredible amount of information from this site. How do I know this information is useful and WILL help you succeed? Let me tell you!

I started SimpleAdsense.com sometime towards the end of March, like I have said I was pretty much a complete newbie however I had begun to learn some incredible information which gave me the motivation to give this a more serious try. Now I went to work right away and started following all the advice that I was learning, and oh man was I disappointed and frustrated. Not much traffic and not much money being made, but it has been a great learning experience so I am not complaining.

The more I learned the more I put different things into action and guess what? I am finally seeing the fruits of my labor when it comes to SimpleAdsense.com. How do I know this? Well for one I am getting much more traffic and finally starting to see some money come in (this is my lowest earning website). More importantly, and realize that this was really done with in only a few weeks, SimpleAdsense.com is now ranked #1 in Google SERPS for the search term “make real money online with Adsense” and if not #1 then in the top 10 for the phrase “make real money online with Google Adsense”. Additionally we are ranked #1 for the search phrase “get quality targeted traffic”. We also have another site http://getfasttraffic.blogspot.com that, although it keeps going back and forth, is ranked pretty high for the same search terms. And even more amazing is that SimpleAdsense.com now has a Google page rank of 1 (just happened in the last day or so).

I think this shows that will a little hard work and the right information anyone of you can accomplish the same thing, this does not guarantee that you will make real money online however you probably all ready know that you will not make real money online without high quality targeted traffic and unless you are paying for that high quality targeted traffic it can be damn hard to get it without being on the first page of the SERPS, most importantly Google’s SERPS (something like 90% of all searches are done on Google).

If you are not checking out and using all of the free information and tools that are available for you on SimpleAdsense.com then you are really missing out. Almost every banner on SimpleAdsense.com is to some sort of FREE version of some really incredible products, whether it is just free information or a program that you can use. And that is what is so great, you can check out these different products and see what might work for you, it really saves you the hassle and expense of buying program after program that doesn’t deliver what it promises or is just not what you needed. You can try these out first and then make an informed decision. Now you can of course bypass my links and get the same deals, at least in most cases, and not give me credit for referring you, however unless you make a purchase I don’t make any money anyway. And I am not encouraging you to make a purchase, like I have said many of these products offer free versions, they are restrictive usually and don’t allow you to fully use the product but what you can use is so incredibly useful that you will most likely decide to make some purchases anyway. Even if you don’t, and that is fine with me, it doesn’t matter, I am not trying to take your money, I want to you be successful with making real money online and I know these tools can help you be successful.

I have not been spending a lot of time the last couple of weeks keeping SimpleAdsense.com updated or anything else, we do have some guest contributors who are thankfully keeping us supplied with some good content. The reason I have not been spending too much time working on this site is that is that I have been crazy busy building some other sites and working on them, these are more of my money makers and right now, believe me, I need to make some real money online. Having MS has prevented me from working a “normal job” and has taken a huge toll on my family’s financial status. Once I have some more sites up and running and it takes less and less time from me to maintain I will be again focusing my efforts on SimpleAdsense.com so that I can continue to bring you the best and newest information on how to make real money online. In the next few days I am going to go ahead and make some videos showing how you can use some of these different free tools and free information to begin creating success for yourselves. Additionally I am going to create some videos showing some of the products that I have paid for and am currently using that I believe will again help you become successful with making money online.

Until then, good luck in all of your endeavors.

The Truth About Making Real Money Online With Google Adsense

If you have been trying to make real money online with Google Adsense then I am sure you know how difficult it can be. You create a site you are proud of; you monetize your site with Adsense, and hopefully some affiliate products, you even start to get some visitors from all of your hard work you have done with SEO and optimizing your website. You have done everything you think you should do, including article marketing and blog commenting, and you realize “hey, no one is clicking on my ads”.

This is not unusual, the stories you here of “I made X amount of dollars in one month with Adsense” are not necessarily untrue, they just don’t tell you the whole truth, like that they are running 100 websites or that they are spending 50% or more of what they make on advertising.

The simple truth is, it is damn hard to make any real money online with Google Adsense! Let’s take SimpleAdsense.com for example, how many of you ever click on an Adsense ad on this site? Not many believe me I know. The truth is you are here looking for specific information and once you have what you are looking for, or not, you will move on and return to Google to do another search, even though the Adsense ads are relevant to what this site is about, and hopefully what you are looking for, you simply do not click on the ads, you would rather go do a search on Google then click on any ads. This is normal these days, Internet users have become very ad conscious and for whatever reason most will avoid clicking on an ad at all costs. It is almost as if they have a grudge against site owners who are trying to make a living with their websites, I have even heard of people actually cutting and pasting the URL from an Adsense ad into their browser instead of clicking on the ad itself.

Now I don’t feel that people should just click on any Adsense ad just so the site owner makes money, this would be click fraud and someone is on the other side of that ad paying good money to have that ad displayed, however I don’t understand why someone would not click on an ad that might interest them or provide the type of information they are looking for. I am not whining because this site make very little from Adsense, I have other sites that make me plenty of money from Adsense and other monetization methods, and besides SimpleAdsense.com is more of a passion for myself and our contributors. The goal of this website is not necessarily to make money but instead to help you learn how to make money online, whether it is with Adsense or affiliate marketing. We created this site after struggling ourselves and getting sick and tired of “get rich quick” schemes and half truths. We decided we would gather all the information that we could find, take our own knowledge and experience, and maybe that of our visitors, and provide it to you so that you can have a jump start on your money making endeavor.

So the next time you are visiting SimpleAdsense.com, or any other website, think about whether or not the website provided you with what you were looking for, did the website provide a helpful service? If so think about visiting some of the other sites that are advertising on the site, chances are they will provide you with more helpful information as well, and if you didn’t find what you were looking for then you have an even better reason to visit some of the advertisers.

Following the incredibly helpful advise of these successful bloggers should have you generating high quality targeted traffic to your website in no time, and the best part is these methods won’t cost you a dime! If you have any doubt that these methods work you should go Google “make real money online with adsense”, I have two websites that are in the top 5 and often in the first two spots. Now this is a long-tail keyword phrase with only roughly 300,000 pages with that phrase indexed by Google (not a lot of competition), but remember I am not an SEO professional nor have I been doing this for years. This has all be accomplished in about 2 weeks time, before that I could not find either site as far back as 15 pages or so, for any search term. Now both sites are in the top 5 for the term mentioned above as well as being inthe top 40 for keyword phrases such as “get fast traffic” (currently 7th), “get quality targeted traffic” (currently 16th and 30th), and “make real money online with Google Adsense” (currently 15th and 18th). Now of course some of these terms have less than 400,000 pages indexed which usually means there are not as many people searching for those phrases as a search term that turns up say 1,000,000 indexed pages, but then that is kind of the point when it comes to finding a niche with little competition and using it to make real money online.

How to Drive High Quality Targeted Traffic to your Website

In order to be successful in affiliate marketing, acquiring high quality targeted traffic is essential. Whether you are promoting or reselling products or services online, this method has demonstrated to be extremely efficient. The strategy of paying for performance is one of the best protected marketing strategies that are out there today.

When marketing your business online, a crucial factor to your business’s success is the amount of high quality targeted traffic that your website receives on a daily basis. Remember, it is important to ensure that you are receiving high quality targeted traffic as this is a factor in the revenue that you will make from sales. One option that you have as a webmaster is to invest your money into the search engines to be able to get top rankings.

Let’s take a closer look at a practical example of this method. Paying for performance can mean giving commission to a sales person only when a new sale is made. As you can see, this strategy substantiates real profit for you as you can compute the amount of money you will have to spend for every new sale that is made. Furthermore, you can avoid spending any marketing dollars since every cent you use has to either come from a sale, or will be used to generate a sale in the future.

Another proven and efficient method of acquiring sales in affiliate marketing business is by attracting laser-targeted traffic towards your website and then converting that high quality traffic into revenue by means of “Pay-Per-Click” search engines. Pay-Per-Click search engines like Overture can bring impressive sales because they sanction you to pay for performance by attracting high quality targeted traffic to your niche. What does this mean for you? This simply means that visitors to your site are searching for exactly what you have to offer. The secret that Overture uses to drive high quality targeted traffic to your website is by bidding on keywords that are related to the product or service that you are offering. This strategy works due to focusing on precise keywords or keyword phrases. Another benefit of advertising in Overture Premium listing is that your website will appear in the leading U.S. search engines such as Yahoo, InfoSpace, MSN, Netscape, AltaVista, Lycos and more.

Another part of Overture’s strategy is that your visitors are allowed to respond. This gives you the opportunity to develop lifetime customers that will patronize your product or services as well as be repeat buyers. This is important in that securing a one-time sale, cannot be a key in creating a highly profitable business, especially online.

Another tactic that Overture uses in order to gain high quality targeted traffic is to have a “Back-Up Response” for those who “almost bought” your product on the first visit. To successfully realize this, you need to market and advertise to them over and over again until you make them a new customer. Offer them an incentive so that they’ll allow you to advertise to them over a certain time span by means of e-mail or post mail. Here are some of the back-up responses, which you can use: send a free e-mail newsletter, give a free catalog and offer a promo or sweepstakes, which gives them the chance to win free merchandise.

Offering customer discounts is a great value as well giving out seasonal and special offers to repeat customers; this will give them incentives to purchase. As you can see, the above mentioned strategies can surely develop a trusted relationship between you and your customers. This is also a wonderful way to secure quality targeted traffic that are referrals from content customers.

Do Search Engines Care If Your Domains Are Hyphenated?

This is a pretty hotly debated topic at the moment, so I thought I would share what I have found in my research, as well as in the school of hard knocks…

According to Matt Cutts, Google mouthpiece, Google’s software doesn’t penalize for use of hyphenated domains even if there are more than 2 or even 3 in a domain name. So keyword-rich-domains.com will fair no better with Google than keywordrichdomains.com will.

Of course this is not necessarily true of the rest of the search engines. For most of us, our main concern is what Google’s software will or won’t do, but there are a lot of other search engines out there too.

The one area Matt Cutts separated out was circumstances where there could be confusion as to where the breaks between keywords should be. An example shown was that of books-exchange.com vs. booksexchange.com for obvious reasons. Matt claims that Google can tell which division is appropriate for your site, one would assume due to content.

But what if you are using a domain primarily as a redirect? I am not completely sure they would pick it up in that case, so keep that in mind when buying domains only as redirects…

Interestingly, Matt says that it is preferable to separate your keywords in a path by hyphens as many search engines will pick them up much better this way. He specified that hyphens were far better than underscores. What we are referring to here is the section of a particular url that occurs after the extension (.com, .net, .info…).

So according to this method yourdomain.com/whatever-you-want.html is better than yourdomain.com/whateveryouwant.html for many search engines.

To take advantage of this in a WordPress blog situation you need to change the Permalink structure under Settings to Custom and type in this: /%category%/%postname%.html

This changes the pathways structure for your blog and allows you to hyphenate the keywords you choose to include in the pathway portion of the url for each post.

None of this is to say there aren’t downsides to hyphenating the root domain such as best-domains.info Most of these have to do with verbally communicating your website address and the confusion that can result. Some people also think that a non-hyphenated domain name just looks better.

These concernsare not entirely frivolous, but let’s face it folks we are also dealing with a commodity that is not unlimited! There are definite advantages to a keyword rich domain name just as there are advantages to a .com over a .net or a .info as this site uses.

So you weigh your desired keywords over availability of extension. You take into account whether your keywords should be hyphenated, or even if the non-hyphenated domain is available. Keeping in mind your intended use for the domain (redirects) you then make the best decision available to you…

Competition over keyword based domain names is at a fever pitch these days, so these issues are not going away anytime soon, or probaby ever!

I advise you to use the extensions necessary to get the best keywords but be alert to opportunities that present themselves in the marketplace. Use hyphens to get your desired keywords when you need to, or to segment ambiguous domain names when necessary.

Apply balance using hyphens in domain names and you will be fine…
