Blogger Introduces a New monetize tab


Today I found a new "monetizing function" under the layout tab in my blogger Account.

blogger_monetize_tab It has three distinct ad placement positions and Google considers them quite helpful for you in monetizing your blog better. And you know? These positions are really helpful. Let’s use and experience yourself.

  1. The first category places your Ad on right sidebar and just below your post.
  2. Choosing the second category, it will put your ad on the right sidebar only.
  3. The third and last category will position your ad below the post only.

All the above defined positions are the visitor's eye-catching positions and will really help you a lot. But still I recommend you to keep experimenting your ads placement, as a short and positive change could yield you big results.

Good Luck!

Tips to Prevent Adsense Account by getting banned


Google Adsense Tips

The Adsense Guidelines and TOS is the good way to prevent adsense account from getting banned. But, unfortunately, most of the people don't read them. It took only one single step against their policy which results in account termination.
According to Labnol, Google terminated the account of PR7 website, few months ago, which belongs to Robin Hood, who writes on the popular MasterNewMedia blog. The reason of this ban was, Robin sells text links on his website. He is even an Adsense Premium Publisher. But after some appeals he got the account later. So you can see that nobody is safe if he is going against the Adsense Policies. So here are few tips for you to follow in order to prevent your Adsense account.

Invalid Clicks - Never Click on Your Ads.

Never ever click on your own ads, if you found an ad that is interesting to you just right click on the ad, click on properties, evolve out the advertiser’s URL and go through the URL.

Invalid Page Impressions - Never reload your pages excessively

Never reload your website pages excessively as it creates an invalid impression that could ban your account. If you want to change the layout of your page and need to confirm the right positions for your ads, then add this <google_adtest = "on"> to your ad script.


<script type="text/javascript"><!--
google_ad_client = "pub-your pub id";
/* 300x300, created 12/12/08 */
google_ad_slot = "87654321";
google_ad_width = 300;
google_ad_height = 300;
google_adtest = "on";
<script type="text/javascript"

Don’t display ads on copyrighted content, banned keywords, email, Pop up box and with Google Logo

If you are using copyrighted content, article etc. on your site, then be sure to take the permission from the content owner, if he allows you then it's Ok or else remove his content from your website. The content owner may file complaint against your website to Google Adsense and then your account can be banned. Displaying Google trademarks where you shouldn't use also lead to account ban.

Excessive profanity,Violence, racial intolerance, or advocate against any individual, group, or organization.
Hacking/cracking content
Illicit drugs and drug paraphernalia
Pornography, adult, or mature content
Gambling or casino-related content
Excessive advertising
Any other content that promotes illegal activity or infringes on the legal rights of others

Use Google Adsense Allowed Site Tool

Adsense Allowed Site

Your competitor can display your ads on banned site, so you must take some precautions, use Allowed Site Feature and feed the addresses of your website only. If some one places your ads on other website your ad will still be displayed but impressions and clicks will not be recorded.

Don’t disclose your CTR, Clicks, And Impressions Data

Displaying clicks, CTR, eCPM etc. publicly may lead to account ban. So be cautious.

Don’t Encourage your visitors to click the ads

Don't encourage your visitors to click on your ad. Using words like click it, support, visit our sponsor, near the ads can also ban your Adsense account.

Always send an email to Google if you have any confusion

Whenever you have any query or confusion write out an email to Adsense Team, they will not ban your account for asking but they may ban if you not ask them.

  2. Change Search Engine and repeat the above step.

But sometimes you get disappointed with the results. If you are a Google Search Expert then, this might be a trick that you already know.

With this free tool, you can search for exactly what you are looking for, like MP3Music, Music Album, E-books, Software, Ring tones and Prox-if on Google. G2P uses some crafty Google searches to help locate open directories or otherwise shared files. This tool is also helpful to Google Search Experts as it saves them a lot of time.

In their own language: What does G2P do?
-G2P (Google to Person) uses some crafty Google searches to help locate open directories or otherwise shared files. These searches are nothing secret (In fact, take a look at the results, so you can see how it is done. However, it is much easier to remember g2p.org than these complex searches.

Google Power Meter Will Help users in cutting the electricity bills

The future belongs to Google, one of an example regarding its usage is that it would help you in cutting down your electricity bills. Google makes it possible by demonstrating Google Power Meter to it's users.

Google Inc. in Los Angeles recently said that their software technology will help it's users to track their home's energy usage. Great Technology! it will not only help users in lowering their electricity bills but also helps in reducing Global Warming effects that are caused due to production of electricity.

How this service will work?

The modus of operandi of Goggle’s Software Technology would be to track your power consumption and also track which device is consuming more or less. This will give you an idea about the device's power consumption so that you can easily decide which device needs switching.

As this project is related to lowering the environmental issues, google knows it very well, that they will get more push support from Government. Google Power Meter is currently being tested by employees and is not yet available to the public. The service hasn't even entered in beta status.

In my opinion Google takes care of the environment, as the company had already invested in several fledging solar power, wind power and geothermal power companies, this proves their care about environment.

The company is also planning to develop partnership with other companies so as to roll out their PowerMeter with in next few months.
Google wants to be a part of the smart grid action and their step would help many people including environment to reach safely in limit. It is a technology to count on in future.

According to Google,there are 40 million smart meters in use worldwide, with another 100 million planned in the next few years. *says source.

Lets start saving energy and be Energy efficient with Google Power Meter.
