Best AdSense Placement Tips – Size Matters

 

Hey guys! It’s Marcus here from blogprofitnetwork.com.


Today in this special video,

I’ll show you the difference between certain ads, some sizes, colors and settings to get you the most profit.

For people who have known me for a while and been to blogprofitnetwork.com, you guys know that I’ve made millions of dollars online and hundreds of thousands of that from AdSense.

I want to show you guys how this works because you’re gonna notice on this sample template site here, you’re gonna see that I have content.

You can see the content here in form of text. You can see the sidebar here.  This is our main portions. Up here is our header, our sidebar and our content area. As we scroll down, you can kind of see what it looks like there. Notice how I have these ads placed strategically throughout the content so that it looks like actual links. That’s the same thing that we want to replicate with AdSense.

Let’s go ahead and dive in and talk about where the different placements would go, where they look best and where you’re going to get the best click-through rate, because the more clicks you get, the more money you’re going to make.

So let’s say we have this site here.

Now there’s several major Adsense sizes.

One of them the most popular is 160 by 600.  It looks like this. Here we could probably have two of these in the sidebar if we wanted to. You’ll notice in the sidebar here, what I do have instead of this big guy, is I have a 336 by 280 which fills up that spot right there.

Now what we want to do is we want to look at this 336 by 280 and this is in fact the highest converting AdSense size that I have found. It’s very versatile. 

  • You could put it in the sidebar here which obviously looks better than this because it’s taking up more space and it looks good.
  • You could also put this over here in your content if I was to replace this and put the content around it.
  • You can center it in your content like this or you could put it you know basically wherever you want to make it look like part of the site.

It’s very important that your ads look like part of the site. So the 336 by 280 is, in my opinion, the highest converting one and that’s what I’ve seen over time as well.

Next up, again we talked about the 160 by 600 which is the skyscraper looking ad. That’s another one and these are actual size so you can see how they look on a page.

Another one is very similar to the 336 which is the 300 by 250.

What you’re gonna notice is a little bit smaller. So if you’re crunched for space or you have a smaller sidebar, you could go with this one as well or you could put this in the content here as well if you have images or something it works nicely because you could put it side-by-side. Very very cool. Very easy to use. It’s definitely also one of the better sizes.

Another one that you’re going to notice is one of the banner type sizes.

The banner sizes, this one converts pretty decent. It is a 728 by 90. The best place for 728 by 90 is usually if you have space in your heading here or if you have something on the bottom. As you’ll see it’s pretty big for in content. So if we go down to the bottom we could place it somewhere like here and just kind of try to scrape some money off of the people who scroll all the way down. So that’s where you could use that. I don’t use this one too much unless I’m using a static site. Now we’re doing this demo in WordPress so I probably wouldn’t use it too much. Let’s go ahead and put it back up the top so you guys could see it as well.

Another size which I don’t believe I have a pink box for but I do have this one which is a 468 by 60.

You can see that this one’s very good as well. You could put it like right dead center in the content so it looks like actual part of the site and that’s the goal that we’re going for is making this look like part of the site. This is also a very good one for your ads as well because it blends in, it’s a good size, everything like that. That is a 468 by 60.

Now these are your major sizes. You could see here which is 728 by 90, 336 by 280, 300 by 250, or 160 by 600. Of course in your account, you can play around with the different sizes as well.

Now let’s talk about placement.

Placement is very important because you’re going to notice that people search the web in a F-type pattern. That means that when they look, that’s your site they’re basically looking at it in this area. So the pink areas that you see here is where most of their eyes go. You could look at this by different charting tools and things like that but basically this is how they look. They’re reading left to right, starting here and coming down. This kind of stuff doesn’t stand out as much so you might want to put other things in your sidebar to try to get them because the sidebar is one of the places unless you’re highlighting it that gets the least amount of clicks. So let’s go ahead and take a look at now that we know the placement. Let’s take a look at colors and different things like that.

Now you’ll notice that a lot of regular AdSense stuff is going to look like this.

Basically has a blue border around it, blue text, green link or green URL and a black text.  So the blue is the highlighted area that you want them to click on which is good because people are accustomed to clicking on blue which is very important.

Now what you’re going to notice, by default, Adsense is going to have a border around it. We don’t want this border because the border actually makes it look like ads. It looks like okay here’s your content and bam here’s some ads here. It doesn’t look like actually part of the site. So what we want to do and I want to show you the difference here. The difference here would be, if I had these in my content with the box around them versus if I had this here.  You can see here how this looks like part of the site and this one looks like something else.  We want to get rid of that border and we want to keep those links blue and everything. This again is the 336 by 280 AdSense block which is a very very high converting one.

Another one, we talked about is the smaller one here like this, where we could put this here in your content if we were to put it like right here. Again, look at how the border makes a difference. The border makes a huge difference in saying, “hey this is an ad; this is an ad” rather than having it look like part of the site, like my links do here.

So again, you definitely want to get rid of that border and look at how nicely that looks! It basically looks like part of the content. So obviously since Google’s going to target this, they’ll put ads about temper tantrums and BAM now it looks like part of the content. Same kind of thing with links up top. You can play around with different links and things like that. It may be up here right below this so it looks like kind of like a like a menu where they’re seeing different content and stuff like that. Very very important.

Again, play around with the different ad sizes. We have a really killer video on AdSense and placement and how to make money with AdSense on blogprofitnetwork.com.

 

You can click the link in the description of this video and get that very very good stuff.

Again, remember, make it look like part of the content.

Don’t point at it.
Don’t tell people to click at it.

Don’t put big images by it that say click here or anything like that.

Don’t do any bait-and-switch.

If you use these tactics which are well within the guidelines of the Adsense TOS or Terms of Service or whatever, you’re gonna do really really well because that’s basically what they want. They want people to click on things they’re interested in and you can see here just by looking at how good this looks right. 

If I had a black site I’d probably make the background of the ads black and then different colors and things like that but normally I like to stick to white background, blue link, black text, green URL. Play around with different sizes, different places like this and watch your Adsense income go through the roof.

I’ve seen mine as much as quadruple or more just by adding these simple tactics so have fun with it.

New Internet Marketing Forum

 

Hey guys! It’s Marcus here.

You know while I was away at rehab, for the month that I was gone, in addition to starting back my old habit, I learned a few things and I got to thinking about you and how I could best serve you without having to deal with the struggles of creating new programs, and doing new things, and having things all over the internet where you have to go find them.

My goal was to give you the information that you needed and the tools that you needed so that you could profit online and actually get support from me, my team, and your fellow students. Because what I learned is that we’re all going through this together. We all have similar goal. We all have similar ideas and we can all help each other out.

So what I’ve decided to do is put together this internet marketing forum. Now unlike other internet marketing forums where they’re polluted with a bunch of junk, fake offers, and a bunch of garbage, this one is all based on one thing. And that is based around the way that I teach affiliate marketing, CPA marketing, and internet marketing as a whole.

So this forum, unlike the others, is going to be powered by the videos and tools that I put out for you. So if you’re one of my simple site students, you’re going to have a special area in the forum to talk to other simple sites students. If you’re a blog profit member, you’re going to have a spot in the forum to talk to other blog profit members, and each group is going to get their own special set of tools, videos and everything that they need.

Now there’s a couple things that are going to change with this forum. You see because I want to get away from being the guru that everyone goes to for answers and relies upon for every little thing. I want to be more of a friend. I want to be like that friend who hangs out at parties and you ask him questions about internet marketing. And you get the answers that you need in a really cool way where it’s not like someone’s selling you the solution for something because we’re all in this together as I stated before, and we’re all here to help each other.

So what I’ve decided to do, is make three groups to the forum.

One is the blog profit network members area, will have a link below where you can sign up and you can get involved in that.

You also get the blog profit network software and tools and everything that is our basic tier.

Beginning internet marketers our next tier, is the simple sites big profits forum.

If you are an owner of simple sites and you are a continued coaching member, this is for you. If you want to reactivate or if you want to start with simple sites, you get the software, you get the tools, you get everything. You can do that below as well.

Then we have our special founding members area. This is for elite marketers who want to share their experience, learn more, ask questions of me, get their simple sites reviewed, get their blogs reviewed, everything like that.

And my goal is to make this perfect for you.

So what I decided to do is allow some of my members who have had success in the past to be part of this and be able to moderate it. Now what I’d like to do to make this worthwhile for you as a founding member, is I’d like to allow you the ability to be able to pay your way into the founding member program virtually free.

Now the price is going to be $297.00 a month. A lot of you guys might be thinking, hey that’s a great deal but I really don’t have that or that’s a big commitment. Now if you’re in that group of people, what I’ve decided to do is make this virtually free for you by allowing you to post special offers in our forum. These offers are going to go out to all my other students and everything like that. You can post a site with tips and tricks and things like that. You can post maybe an affiliate offer that you found that works well and you could use your affiliate link and make money.

This is unlike the other forms that charge like fifty dollars or four dollars or whatever it is for one single post. This is allowing you access all month. 

I know being a student of mine, you’re not going to abuse this and post one every second of every day or every day for that matter. You are going to reserve this for special things that you see needed. The goal is that you learn marketing as well as provide valuable services, valuable tips, and tricks to other marketers as well. And this is going to help you pay your way through the program. This is the absolute best value and this is something that you’re going to want to stay in forever, because not only are you going to get simple sites, not only are you going to get private coaching for them and skype access, not only are you going to get access to your other students, other members and my successful students, as well as myself, but you’re also going to get the ability to advertise on the forum.

Now all advertising must be approved by me and later on as the forum grows, you are going to be grandfathered in at just $297 a month. That means as we go on and we charge a thousand dollars for one post, you’re still going to be paying $297 a month for as many as you want to post.

As you can see, just one little post with an affiliate link can make you even more money than it costs to be in this. So this is an investment rather than another coaching program or junk because what I want you to do is, I want you to get used to making offers to people. I want you to get used to using this forum as a way to help people.

So guys what I’d like you to do is choose below based on where you’re at.

If you’re a beginner, start at the blog profit area.

If you’re intermediate, start at simple sites.

And if you’re ready to go, ready to start making money today, go ahead and be a founding member.

Guys there is nothing like this anywhere in the marketplace, and we’re only accepting a few people. So I want you to get in. Now once you’re in, you are grandfathered in and I’m going to have a special video on how to make your investment back using just the forum. So what I’d like you to do, is go ahead and choose your access point below. I am going to help you make money online. Really cool way because what I learned while I was away is that we’re all in this together and we’re all here to help each other out in the best way that I know. To help you is to provide you a place where you can go and get the help you need as well as practice your marketing strategies.

So what I did is a little test yesterday as the forum is brand new and I did a test with one of my sites. I just put a little link in this forum that we’re talking about. Anything made like 12 bucks right now that might not be a lot to some of you, but it’s enough to pay your membership and it was just a test when the forum was brand new. So I want you to really see the power of this because this is your ticket to making money online. Go ahead, choose your access point below I really hope you take me up on the offer of becoming a founding member because I’m going to show you how to make your money back fast in a really cool way.

Thanks again for listening! I hope you find this forum to be exactly what you’re looking for, to where you get rid of info overload and you have access to all the tools and tips that you need. Again, this is where all my coaching is heading towards. So you definitely want to take me up on whichever offer below fits your needs best.

I hope it’s the founder one and I hope I get to help you make money today. So go ahead, use the forum, use the links below to be part of the private forums, and let’s make money online together, in a way that’s never been done before, hand in hand, where you can start today. Make your first dollar online today and grow from there.

Guys this is the best learning opportunity because we are creating a collective consciousness of internet marketers with the same struggles. And people who have been where you are before and aren’t trying to tout some guru junk or sell some stupid thing that no one really needs. We’re all here to help each other and they’re pointing to things that we really need. So if you have a cool tip or something like that based on one of the programs that helps people, get in as a founding member and start making money right now!

Guys I thank you for watching. I thank you for continuing to be a part of this forum and let’s make money today. Go ahead and sign up below using the link that best fits you. Obviously the founding forum is the best way to go and I’ll see you on the inside.
