Recently there has been a lot of discussion about people
who earn over $10,000 a month just from Adsense.
Furthermore, there are rumors of a few individuals who
earn over $1 million a year just from using the power of
Google advertisements.

So what is Google Adsense and how can you use this
program to earn a six-figure income?

About two years ago, Google created this program to
help websites to monetize their web-traffic.

Here's how it works:

Webmasters obtain a special code from Google which
then displays targeted ads on their website. Whenever a
visitor clicks on one of these ads, the webmaster earns a
commission. Unlike other online businesses, there is no
selling involved. All you need to do is get people to
click on the ads.

Although this is an excellent way to generate an income,
many websites are not effectively maximizing their
Adsense potential. As a result, they are leaving a lot of
cash on the table.

The question is how can you increase your Adsense
revenue without increasing the number of web visitors?

The key to earning an income with Google Adsense is to
have your ads match the rest of the site, making them
look like part of your content. Your focus is to avoid
having the Adsense blocks look like blatant

The following are six ways that you can do this and
increase your revenue at the same time:

1) Find the right place- Most website visitors read
content that is in the middle of a webpage. As a
result, the best place to put your Adsense block is in
the top part of the page, at the beginning of your
web content. You want to weave the Google Ads
into your web content to give the appearance that
they are extra links which expand on the information
of the page.

2) Use the Large Rectangle-With Google Adsense,
you have the option of picking different ad formats.
Most of the time people opt to use the Leaderboard
(728x90) or Wide Skyscraper (160x600) style ads.
Unfortunately, this is the wrong choice, because both
look like blatant advertisements. Instead smart
webmasters have found that using the Large
Rectangle (336x280) yields the best amount of

3) Ditch the border- Many people experience a sharp
increase in Adsense revenue when they changing
their border. What they change is very simpleĦ­they
get rid of the border on their Adsense blocks. This
is another way to make the advertisements look like
useful web content.

4) Adapt the font- Whenever you write content, it
should be the same font size and style as your
Google Adsense block. This will help make it
appear that the advertisements are a natural part of
your website.

5) Match the colors- In addition to changing the fonts,
you also should match the colors of your website.
For instance, if your content is written in black, and
your hyperlinks are blue, then the Adsense blocks
should also be the same color. Again, this helps the
advertisements appear to be normal web content.

6) Don't have too many distractions- On a
webpage, it is important to give web visitor a limited
number of options. By having too many links and
graphics, the web visitor might go to a section that
doesn't help increase your profits. While it is
important to inform and entertain your web visitor, it
is also vital that you monetize your site. So if the
main focus of your site is to earn an income through
Google Adsense, then get rid of all non-essential
links and graphics.

By taking the time to implement these six simple steps,
you'll see a dramatic increase in the click-thru ratio of
your ads. If added to all of the content of your site, your
Adsense income will skyrocket!
