Could you please bring your thoughts on this? Is this approach still viable — as you described on this page? With , targeted followers you will have a thriving audience that gets a lot of traffic to your site, if you do the correct targeting on FB. I want you to help me cos I wanna get a website and link it to my Facebook straight to my googleAdSense.
But a Facebook group is not a Fan Page. Well, if you read this article we focus on social traffic from facebook ads. A good starting point is to identify large interest groups within your niche. I break them down as follows:. Magazines in your niche: These are often huge interest groups that are very relevant. I target many magazines. You can target fans of other large websites in your niche. I do this routinely. With respect to age ranges, gender and location — that boils down to testing. I got pretty lucky with my FB ad campaigns in the beginning, but then this was my second niche focusing on FB so I was very familiar with FB ads and targeting.
I know my niche would do well and I knew who my audience was. I spent weeks researching my niche and dozens of other sites in the niche before launching including carefully analyzing their FB and Pinterest channels. I tested 30 to 40 blog posts in the first 3 months. Same thing with interest groups, age ranges, gender, etc.
I create a new adset for every interest group, device desktop vs. This way I can see which configuration works best and I can adjust budgets for each configuration. Also, not every niche will be profitable with direct ad traffic. Be prepared to experiment a lot. It really depends what people are here for. Basically, identify the intent of the page and offer something that matches that intent in exchange for an email. You got me thinking now! Maybe a an exit popup with a gift card giveaway for subscribers or something along those lines.
Can you please talk more about the Google matched ad? Is it performing well? Can it outperform Taboola? Those display ads above or below can do very well. All I can say is test it.

I do have a question about Facebook advertising. Do you make adjustments to this campaign or just move onto another post? If you do make changes, what adjustments do you make to the campaign? Once any campaign runs out of steam, and they all do, I pause it and move on. Before, almost every Adsense guide told us that one key factor for kw research was CPC or some other form of commercial intent. I experienced something similar some months ago when someone shared an article of mine on a popular sub-reddit, which gave me 15k visits in 2 days extraordinary for my site.
When I click the x other like this link, I do get a window, but there is no invite button showing. Is there something I need to install first? Hmm, then it is maybe country setting, or not enough followers yet. Because I am always running into problems with my facebook company page not looking as is shown in tutorials: You kind of have to look at all the factors and make a decision. Same thing with StumbleUpon. Desktop earns me far more per 1, page views than mobile. Mobile is tricky and that publishing world is scrambling to figure out how to monetize mobile more.
If getting a high RPM was easy, everyone would do this not to mention traffic and all the rest that goes into it. I have a site that was getting around k visits per month but the adsense monetisation was a measly few hundred dollars. It also ate into the user experience. At that time there was no such display ad automatic optimisation like ezoic, and on top of that, the site was built from bottom up using html. Of course test it. Sounds like you have a good thing going on. Just know that you get what you pay for usually. They have in-house writers who are very good but they also manage everything.
My B2C have a lot of moving parts including a lot of outreach and LD is able to do everything from start to finish. I hire beginning journalists. It really depends on your niche. Im definitely looking into building more revenue with ad placement and the images you provided here a great! A question for Gael: We use Thrive Leads ;.
Thank you for the information. I run only Criteo, Outbrain and Video ads on these. I like that service, but there are loads of options. Opinion Stage offers in-poll ads, which includes Criteo and Outbrain. I am not asking in that manner because I am against it or for any other negative reason.
How Jon Dykstra Made $1,, With Display Ads Arbitrage
I am just really curious. I have heard a lot of bad things about buying traffic, especially in regards to being dropped from ad companies. Is this not correct information? I would love to know, I also would love to find some places to buy traffic. Amazing article, I have bookmarked it for later reference. Appreciate your information and time!! Sorry for the delayed response. Yes, I buy traffic to niche sites. Mostly with Facebook ads. I will try to implement your techniques on my websites as well.
Can I get a tip on how to improve my income?
Some ad networks work better than others in certain niches. For example, while Media. Thanks for all of your hard work on this articles guys. I think the limitation is on Adwords, not PPC in general.

Since Jon uses Facebook ads I think he is clear. However, I spoke with Adwords I use Adwords for my local marketing work and they gave me the green light to use Adwords to my display ad monetized sites. I was surprised by that. That said, if you do use Adwords, talk to them first and get a copy of the live chat transcript if they give you the green light. Another big issue is the rise of ad blockers that might be preventing your monetization strategy:. At first when the media published extensively on this matter it was a concern and it will no doubt impact display ad revenues to some extent.
It already has especially with some demographics that are prone to use ad blockers. However, given there are no real alternatives for monetizing many websites other than display ads, I think the most popular websites in the world will simply block people who use ad blockers.
I know the website publishing pundits advise against this strategy currently, but when push comes to shove the biggest websites will likely block people from visiting which will force users to turn ad blockers off once blocking visitors is widespread. The more publishers who join in blocking people with ad blockers, the more successful the strategy will be. That said, I do recommend diversifying revenue streams. But, social media traffic, will not convert with adsense or any other media ads. Every marketer know this. Why on Hell John spends here a lot of money- when this traffic will not convert with adsense?
John- at the beginning of your entrepreneurship- you had this amount of capital you spend on buying traffic? Where is the capital come from- Bank credit? Or any other sources…..???? That is the big point I miss on this fat stack method. Yes it is open minded, but this method will not work for the affiliate start up, who not has this amount of capital. Then after you have no money there to buy paid traffic. I got a lot of value from this article. Just need a lot of traffic to make a lot of money. Anyway my question is what are your CTR like? But I get CTR of just under 1 percent to 2 percent on average days.
Honestly, I am highly doubtful that John is able to make the money he says he makes with Adsense. In average you get CTR of 0. I am highly skeptic on what John says and highly skeptic on the amount of money he says he makes form Adsense…. You bring up a great point about Adsense revenue from Facebook traffic.
This explains why, when Facebook posts had decent reach soooooo many website publishers were sending so much traffic to their site; the revenue was really, really high. I will be incorporating this into my sites this week. Hi Jon I hear so many good recommendations about your course i. BTW, what an Epic blog post here! Will also visit our blog for more contents. Thank you for giving valuable information. Jon Dykstra, would you like to revise this post according to your recent experiences paid traffic? I have few questions though:. How much money will you have to spend to bring traffic visitors from facebook either through FB ads or influencer marketing?
I want to know average profit. What is the best way to increase revenue without destroying user experience? Gael Breton, I want to give you a suggestion to write a post about Buzzfeed. What are their traffic sources? How are they getting traffic from them and how can we do the same?
I recently came to know that they are getting enormous traffic from snapchat but I have no idea how are they doing that. I am hoping that when my comment is replied, I will get the notification through email.
Really glad I read this article Only noticed it was published a long time ago after reading. Thanks for Sharing such an amazing blog post. If the world was so sincere with their articles, then we would have been seeing fewer blogging mistakes and more monetization. Hi Ileane Mam, Really Adsense for Feed is one of my best earning source rather than adsense for search.
Thanks for sharing this piece of news! Hi Hari, Did you start building your email list yet? Perhaps you should start converting your FeedBurner subscribers into your email list subscribers. That way you can send promotions and get more conversion with a service like AWeber. Let me know if you want to talk more about this.
Thanks for your comment. Sorry for the delay Ileane. Now , those who were earning good amount of money from feeds will need to lookout for alternative services to earn money from these subsribers. Bad news for those who used to make a substantial amount of money from the feeds. They can now use the feeds to get direct adivertisers. Great article Ileane, and you have a wonderful blog here. When this happened I fairly lost interest in working my tail off to provide content. Clearly the 60 million adblock users have a role in this revenue drop.
Or maybe not, some people deny it has any effect. What do you think? When did you loose all of this income? I know that AdBlockers have been around since before I even started blogging. Good luck I hope you can recover your lost income levels. Alright, I read the post and even got the point of using Adsense Custom Search for my blog or site. Okay I am getting clicks, but the CPC being low just makes my adsense figures stay calm hardly growing. The cost-per-click CPC is the amount you earn each time a user clicks on your ad.
What a great tutorial on AdSense best practices! There are so many ad services and you know what? You gotta make money! And to your other point: In the end we both know that it takes time to build up your content and of course your traffic to the point where it can pay off. And yes i use the adsense for search but it gets a ery little amount of pageviews. Hi Philip, As you know Google is constantly changing things, but the last I heard — your blog needs to be at least 6 months old before you can be considered for the AdSense program.
It makes a lot of sense because Google wants to make sure you can be consistent for at least 6 months. I remember having tried that a couple of years ago, and getting so many negative feedbacks that I opted against eventually. So I had to come up with a plan to have my cake and eat it to.
Basic Blog Tips
This I way I can still make some money with AdSense without everyone knowing unless they take the time to read this post. Hi Ileane and thank you for sharing this great information on how to use Adsense on your blog without it cheapening the look of your blog. I discovered Adsense by accident really. I tried monetizing a few of my videos and to my great surprise I started earning money from them, all for just pressing a button. But I have never added ads to my blog, but I will check out your secret method.
I have also written a post on how to install the custom search engine and linked to your post and your great video tutorial as an alternative installation method to the plugin. Thank you for this great info. I just love having the Google Search on my blog. Thanks for sharing my video in your latest post. But on the other hand, I appreciate how thorough you are with showing people how this is done. Great job Ileane, wonderful share. Great to get your feedback on this topic. But I have to ask you — are you monetizing your YouTube channel?
You have tons of views on some of your videos and that would be some guaranteed passive income for your. What a great strategy to monetize a blog with Adsense without hurting the readers and showing too many ads. And yes, That is a bad news for many bloggers earning thousands of dollars monthly with Adsense for feeds. I think that anyone who is fortunate enough to earn a great deal from AdSense for feeds should put their thinking cap on and turn those FeedBurner subscribers into list subscribers. That is one situation where I would must certainly import all of those people who are subscribing by email into AWeber and start sending them more targeted offers.
If Google can align their desires increase Display Ad inventory with that of the content creator monetize said content , then its a win win for Google. Most people read feed in Google Reader. There is nothing stopping Google from showing ads there the same way they do in Gmail. Just like Facebook, they used to keep the ads on the sidebars but not they are right inside the newsfeed and there is no way to avoid them. Meaning the days of using adwords to make a profit on just that traffic is heading out.
Google is the new tv network media buy. Yep, I think it makes the site looks cheap when place Adsense on blog.
But I think they do help big site makes money and sites that has large amount of traffic like Mashable. And there are more ways of making money. Do you find that a lot of people use your search feature? When I had a search bar on my blog I found that very few people actually used the search feature. Keep in mind that over half of the content on this blog is written by wonderful guest authors like yourself and it was a huge struggle for me to find something when I needed.
Well adsense is an awesome ad network from which we can easily create some good potential income. Adsense is a nice platform for a blogger. We can easily monetize our websites through a good number of visitors. Adsense for search is really nice a your explained above. Prakash, are you using the AdSense for search on your blog yet? How is it working for you? Thanks for your feedback. Hi Prabhat, congratulation on getting accepted for the AdSense program. I never did earn much from AdSense for feeds, but my YouTube channel really started growing. I came up with this strategy for selecting specific posts to show AdSense on just from carefully looking at my stats in AdSense, Google Webmaster Tools and Google Analytics.
For a few months I had AdSense in the sidebar on every page of the blog but I started to notice that it only performed well on those pages that were getting lots of Google traffic because of the keywords I was ranking for. So it started to dawn on me that it would be better if I used my best performing ad unit — which happens to be x 60 image ads — and add them to those posts I could see in GWT getting a lot of clicks.
