Make Google to Gift you an AdSense Account

16 comments

How to Get Approved by Google Adsense Easily Google nowadays is very strict in approving any new Adsense application. In the past, getting an approved Adsense account was similar to getting a gift by parents, but now it’s hard like choosing a gift for girlfriend ;). This is nothing but a step towards Quality Advertising by Google.

Well I want to share few tips with you which help you in getting an approved Adsense account, but only if you’re going to follow them wisely

How to Get Approved by Google Adsense Easily  So you have to target the main concept, which gives Google a reason to approve your application. That concept is quality. If your blog is rich enough and reflects that quality then sure shot you’re welcome to the Adsense World.

How to Get Approved by Google Adsense Easily, here are the few and easy steps, which you can follow to make your blog approved by Adsense Team:

  1. Create a blog: Primary thing, choose a topic on which you want to blog. There are many free blog providers available like blogger and wordpress, You can choose anyone of them and can kick start your blog. It is recommended to choose from blogger or wordpress. Note: Don’t register a custom domain unless you’re approved by Adsense.
  2. Choose a template: This step might look simple, but it have a deep impact on your application process. Choose a professional template, design your custom logo and move on. Make sure that your template should not be similar to the original one. The blog’s design is the first thing that people judge and Adsense team too. Check here for number of free blogger templates.
  3. Creating Content: This is the main fruit of the overall juice. Frankly telling, I think that mine Adsense application for this blog (techeguide.com) was approved due to the original and good quality content written by me. You can use other pre-written articles, but the original one impress them more and receives more credit than pre-written articles, got the scenario? Write at least 15 articles. Make sure that you have to write a post daily.
  4. SEO Part: Make your blog listed in Google Search. Am going to tell you one trick to make your blog listed in Google Search within 2-3 days which generally takes 2-3 weeks or over a month. But before proceeding, note that “don’t do any Search Engine submission at any cost”, be sure. Ok what you actually have to do is to submit your blog to a High Page Rank reputed website which is crawled by Google daily. When Google crawls that website and find your link there, than you’ll be on Google database very soon. This is one of the most important step, don’t ignore this. Also do some RSS submission for your blog.
  5. Readers: Register your feedburner account and gain some readers. This will assure them that your blog is live and people are taking interest in your blog.
  6. Apply for Adsense account: There comes the final step. If you have chosen Blogger’s blog than apply directly from blogger or else fill out the Adsense application from and mention your blog there. Remember God once :) and Submit the application.

I’m sure that if you follow these steps wisely than definitely Google will gift you an Adsense A/C. One more thing, if you have an account that has been disabled by Google for any reason, then just negotiate and negotiate by apologizing  for your mistake and you’ll get your account back. It’s easy to get back the disabled Adsense rather then getting the new one.

And please don’t go against their TOS, they are smarter than us,and remember no one will give you money for free.

If you like this, then please leave your feedback/comments to help me improve. Thanks in advance.

Adsense will introduce "Category Filtering" Feature soon

10 comments

"Category Filtering" Today Adsense team announced on their blog that soon they’ll going to launch a feature "Category Filtering". This feature will help publishers in blocking ads that fall into specific categories.

How this feature will be helpful?

Category filtering will give publishers the ability to block ads that fall into specific categories such as dating, religion, and politics. Regardless of how ads are targeted, they'll be filtered if they're within one of the selected categories. We'll also show the percentage of recent revenue that ads in each category generate, so publishers can predict how filtering selections will impact their revenue.

"Category Filtering"

They will launch this feature under beta testing and will serve to limited number of publishers. So I think we can expect this feature to be in after the official launch only.

I’m curiously waiting for this feature as it will help in boosting the CTR and hence the overall AdSense Revenue. Also this will help in getting better targeted advertising.

Thank you Google for considering this feature and I hope that you people will launch it  very soon.

Google as a Torrent Search Engine

1 comments

Google Using Google’s Custom Search Engine, a guy has created a Google based torrent search engine unofficially on the Google Site.

 

It means that you don’t really need sites like Mininova or The Pirate Bay to find torrents; you can simply use Google which crawls thousands of torrent tracker sites, big and small, and get direct links to torrents. Want a screener of current hit, X-Men origins - Wolverine? Use this Google query and you’ve got it.

Is Google, then, the next in line for assisting in making copyright content available?

If it weren’t too big to be sued, it probably would be.

Google To Introduce Pay Per View in YouTube

0 comments

YouTube Pay Per ViGoogle is planning to better monetize it’s free video sharing site YouTube. So far, they were monetizing YouTube thru  advertising-supported service, but now they plans to build payment mechanisms into its video-sharing site.

So what's the deal?

Google’s CEO said:

"With respect to how it'll get monetized, our first priority is on the advertising side. We do expect over time to see micropayments and other forms of subscription models coming as well. We'll be announcing additional things in that area literally very, very soon."

Although YouTube's service is much popular , but it is also very expensive to operate, and Google has been working hard for months to come up with a more successful financial formula for sharing video.

Most of the Google’s Services are free to use, if they are planning so with the video sharing site, I think that will not make a hole in our pocket. But Yes, It will impose a limitation on me to use the service.

Well, I don’t feel that introduction of Pay Per View Concept will affect us so hard, coz there are many Video sharing alternatives to YouTube which would help us.

The major drawback of this concept for me and other publishers is the shared videos that are embedded on blogs and websites, but I hope that Google would have a solution for that too.

Adsense Checks to India via BlueDart for Free

2 comments

Google has removed the Secure Check delivery feature from Indian Publishers account. They are no more charging for the Check Delivery. Actually, Now the Indian publishers will receive Google checks through Blue Dart, which will be free of charge. The Secured Check was charging $25 to the publishers but now it’s free.

Also the publishers can track their check thru Blue Dart’s tracking Service. Google has introduced this new rule because of the suggestions received by Indian Publishers to introduce some quick and cheap way to send the payments like some Direct Debit type facility. Or May be they will now send the check from India instead of Dublin which could be the reason of cost cutting.

 

Checks mailed by Blue Dart would arrive within 10-30 days of the check date, which is quite a long period but considerable one. In my opinion it’s better than the last one as, I think that checks from Blue Dart should arrive within 10 days rather than 10-30 days.

Also they says that “Blue Dart is not able to service all areas throughout India. If you live in a location they don't service, your check will be sent by Registered Post and should reach you within 2-3 weeks of the mailing date.”

Thank you Adsense Team for this wonderful service.

Visitors come to you site to read content and are less likely to waste their time if they found it much time taking.

    4. Limit the Number of Posts at home page: Limit the the number of posts at the home page, this will gradually increase your blog’s speed for home page.
    5. The auto-load videos: Some blogs have music videos or other types of video clips that start playing when the blog is loaded. Although these videos could be good, but if your visitor is not interested then it’s just wasting his time. Why don’t choose Youtube instead of these auto load videos.
    6. Compress the CSS code: Many of the blogs has CSS code in repeating manner, that slows down the loading speed of your blog/website. You can compress them with very easy method. Check out here to see how can you speed up your blog’s loading by compressing the CSS code.
