How To Setup AdSense A/B Experiments for Ad Units

8 Comments so far

Google AdSense Experiments
Being a predominantly blogging and online income blog, one of the most common questions we get asked here at MBT is, what is the best AdSense Ad Configuration for generating maximum revenue. In all honesty, this question is always very difficult to answer, since the description of 'best configuration' can be subjectively varied from blog to blog, meaning its hard (probably impossible) to create a set-up that works for every blog. The best way to address this issue is to try out various configurations on your blog, and decide by hit or trial which is best. Fortunately for you, the Google AdSense experiments feature is here to help.

How To Submit & Share Your AdSense Story To Google?

13 Comments so far

Google AdSense Success Story
Google AdSense is still perhaps the largest, and most popular advertising network that helps publishers and webmasters earn from their productions. Most webmasters start off their website monetization with Google AdSense, and many continue using it along with other networks. For some, Google AdSense might have lost its charm, because of the sheer size of publishers now using the network which has brought the CPC (Cost Per Click) down. But for some, Google AdSense still holds its value, and accounts for a major portion of their income. If you are one of these lucky few, then you can share your success story with the world and get recognition for it!

Create Responsive AdSense Ad Units
If you have spent any time surfing the internet on your mobile device, looking for information or reading a blog post, you will know how important and satisfying a mobile-optimized website is to a reader. The trend of using mobile devices to connect to the internet has sharply risen, which means webmasters should have websites that cater to the needs of varying screen sizes and varying resolutions. Having a responsive design not only means having a responsive website theme layout, but also having responsive elements, down to the small images and ad units. Speaking of which, Google AdSense has now announced support for responsive ad units, which means that now, you can even change the size of those ad units dynamically depending on the user agent!

How To Enable Adsense On HTTPS Sites?

7 Comments so far

Monetize secure HTTPS webpages
Do you have a webpage that runs on the secure HTTP protocol (or HTTPS)? Mostly, sites with social networking or eCommerce, or even user-login functionalities, run totally, or partially on the HTTPS protocol. If you run such a website, you would have noticed that it isn't easy to put ads on secure HTTPS pages. And since Google AdSense is (more or less) the standard out there, it needs to be HTTPS-compliant. Previously, AdSense didn't work with this kind of a secure protocol. But Google has just fixed this, and enhanced the ad network so that it can deliver ads to even HTTPS pages. This will allow users to monetize their HTTPS pages as well.

Google Payment Banned in Pakistan by Western Union

61 Comments so far

google payment banned in pakistanWe just discovered that On 29th June 2013, Western Union issued a notice to all its franchises in Pakistan to stop payments and transactions made by Google Inc. Whether you are a Google employee or AdSense Publisher, unfortunately you can no longer receive payments from Google through Western Union Quick Cash. We discovered this news today when I was shown the official notice which stated that due to several fraud cases being reported, Western Union has decided to cut down all transactions made by Google in Pakistan. Neither can a customer send money to Google as Sender nor receive a payment as the receiving party. So far Publishers living in Pakistan especially in cities like Lahore, Karachi and Islamabad are not yet informed through any communication medium. Neither have we heard anything from Badar Khushnood, the Country Google consultant. The information is undisclosed and both parties are trying to keep things confidential. We have not heard any print or electronic media reports on this so far.

Update: Luckily the ban by western union on Google has been lifted. Bloggers can now withdraw their AdSense payment from any WU Franchise in Pakistan. The ban was lifted on 12th-13th July 2013. Then ban was put when WU found fake use of NIC cards and some hacking attempts but now things are all sort out and you can happily withdraw your hard earned money. Make sure you take Original NIC with you this time, duplicate copy wont be accepted as they have imposed strict rules now. We just withdraw it on 15th July! :)

A really great flexibility for AdSense users.

Tips to Protect your Adsense Account against Bad Clicks and Invalid Activity

45 Comments so far

Avoid click fraud
Have you ever wondered how Google actually generates an income? It has a very large network of ads, with which it earns and also shares some revenue with publishers (people who put up AdSense ads on their websites). It's a very elaborate system, with Advertisers trusting Google, and investing their money with it in order to grow their own exposure. Google then shares some of that revenue with the publishers. Now it naturally follows, that Google has to make provisions to maintain the trust of its advertisers, and for that, it has to ensure that publishers don't cheat, or use fraudulant methods of clicking on ads to glean more money out of advertisers. Such bad clicks might result in the ban of your AdSense account. So what can you do to prevent such a thing from happening, even if you're not creating any mischief on your side?

Google Premium AdSense Publishers

In any business institution or organization, people who bring in good value are usually rewarded. Like many online companies, Google relies upon ads for its business. The more ad-clicks you get on your website, the better it is for Google, because Google ultimately gets a portion of its AdWords share. Just like most companies, Google has an incentive program with which it rewards AdSense publishers who bring in lots of click, and effectively help Google as well. This incentive program is dubbed "Google Premium AdSense Publishers". Many of our readers have had some confusion regarding Premium AdSense Publisher accounts. So that shall be our point of focus in this post today.

Video ads
Using videos in your content is considered as one of the most effective presentation technique. It helps with visual aids, and makes it easier for the listener audience group to grasp your message. Indeed, serving videos is one of the effective ways of attracing traffic. And just like other content such as text and images, videos have great revenue potential. This means, that if you have a substantial video viewership, you can use that traffic to earn revenue for you through ads. And generally speaking, video ads sometimes tend to perform better on the revenue side when we compare equal amounts of traffic for video content, and simple text/image content. Google understands this, which is why it has been working on video ad serving for some time. And now, it has finally announced its video ad serving feature, and a free and unlimited video ad serving trial offer to DFP Small Business publishers.
