Are You Losing Money with Google Adsense?

So you have created a great website, your traffic is increasing each day, and you have began earning some money from those Adsense ads you strategically placed. Adsense is a great source for income but are you getting the most money out of those ads as you can? The answer may be no.

Many of the top webmasters and marketers use a great tool that can be utilized when generating your Adsense codes. It is very simple to use but very few people actually utilize this feature, and the ones that are may not be using it correctly, which could be costing you with each visitor to your web page. The feature that I am referring to is the 'Alternate URL' option. If you are letting Google place Public Service Ads on your site then when there is no current relevant ads to show then only a PSA shows which you get no compensation for. These alternate ads only show up when Google has no ads to show that are relevant to the content on your site.

The trick to using this feature effectively is to find an alternate site that pays a high click rate. There are several affiliate sites that have these codes set up and I have tried a few of them. There were a couple where the payouts were not worth my time but there are other that are paying up to $12 to $15 per click. After just a few days of using the alternate feature you will see an increase in the number of impressions and you won't have any lost clicks. Once I started using the alternate url I saw a sharp increase in the number of clicks I was getting. I also started keeping track on which ads had the highest click through rates and the higher payouts. I narrowed these down to just a few that I use now, but there is one that still gets a great response. The best part about setting these up are they are usually 100% free to join.

Here are a few steps to get started:

1. Locate websites that offer this functionality, the one I use most frequently is http://kcspro.com/modernclick

2. Once you sign up with these programs some are instant and others may take a couple of hours for approval.

3. Sign into your Google Adsense account.

4. Once in Adsense Setup go to Alternate ads or colors and select 'Show ads from another URL'.

5. Type in the url you got from your affiliate site, for example - http://moderncl1ck.com/eb/3/xxxx/0 - where the 'xxxx' is type in your own code.

6. Generate your Adsense code.

7. Paste your Adsense code on your webpage.

That is all you need to do to start maximizing your Adsense earnings. It is very easy and only takes a few minutes to get it set up, and the long term benefits from using the Alterante URL option are huge.
