In previous articles I talked about things to do with Adsense.
Here are some of the things you should NOT do:
If you want to get your account alive, don’t…
Click on your own ads
This will only earn you a few dollars at the most and, if you get caught by the big G, you might get your account banned. Definitely not worth the trouble!
Have your ads on low quality content sites
If your site consists only of scraped, non unique content chances are your love story with Adsense won’t end well.
Be aggresive with ad placement
Make sure the visitor experience is good and the rest will take care of itself
Encourage users to click on your ads
This is a huge violation of the Adsense Terms
Host copyrighted content
That’s a no-no
Link to sites with pirated software/content
Also a no-no
Break the Adsense TOS
What else can I add? Make sure to read them careful. Better safe than sorry!
If you want to earn more revenue, don’t…
Place too many ads
This completely ruins user experience; users are likely to leave your page quickly if they get stuffed with ads. This is a case where most of the times, less is more.
Forget to test
Test everything: colors, placements, sizes… What’s working on one website might not work on another.
There is always room for improvement
