Increase Adsense Earnings With Competitive Ad Filter

How To Increase Your Adsense Earnings Using The Competitive Ad Filter

Category: How To, Personal


.....

Ever notice why some Adsense clicks will only net you $0.01?

Isn’t it annoying that at the end of the day, even if you got 100 clicks, you only made $1? Yes, one f*cking dollar!

Not all Adsense ads are created equal. The Adsense publishers that give you that low are usually those that have Adsense on their site too. They purchase ads through Adwords, have it published at other sites and when somebody clicks on it, they are brought to their own site that contains nothing but high-paying Adsense ads. In other words, they pay 1 cent in order to make 10 cents or higher.

Those are called MFA (Made for Adsense) sites. And it’s about time to get rid of those low-paying clicks.

Adsense actually has a built-in tool called the Competitive Ad Filter to help you with this.

The Competitive Ad Filter enables you to block specific ads, such as competitors’ ads, from appearing on your pages. Entering a more general URL will block a wider range of ads; entering a more specific URL will block a smaller range of ads. For example, by entering a top level domain such as “example.com”, you’ll also block all ads that link to any sub-directories of that domain, like “forums.example.com”. Review the examples below to learn how you can create filters that will block only the range of ads you want.

To access it, log in to your Adsense account > Adsense Setup tab > Competitive Ad Filter.

In the AdSense for Content filters box, you can enter those ads. Up to 500 is allowed.

So, how do I determine what ads to input?

You can register at Adsblacklist, enter your web site and get a list of  low-paying ads related to your site’s content.

If you want to avoid the hassle and don’t mind even if the ads are not related to your site’s content, you can just copy my list below:

Hit the Save changes button and you’re good to go. The changes should take effect in a few hours.

One word of caution though, it might be possible that due to many blocked ads, your site may show Public Service ads if no relevant ads are available.

Based on experience however, the benefits of using the Competitive Ad Filter far outweighs this consequence.

Please let me know if your Adsense earnings increased.

I hope it will. Good luck!

    nice, musta na pala adsense earnings mo sa new blog mo ark?

    [Reply]

    ark Reply:

    Pumalo ng $1.89 ngayon. My highest so far after 2 weeks of using adsense on that site.

    Ad placement ang problema ko dun. Nag-eexperiment pa ako.

    Sorry I don’t really know. I just copied this list from my own. I suggest you remove the URLs with a dash to avoid this error.

    winziph Reply:

    palitan mo lang yung URL na sinasabing may error na “-” tapos ilagay mo ulit mago-ok na yun. :)

    It’s a niche site. 3 weeks old pa lang pero may 500 visitors/day traffic na. Kaya lang mahina ang Adsense earnings. I’m still experimenting.

    Peter Reply:

    ark Reply:

    Keyword research + inbound links (social bookmarks, link exchange, etc) are the keys.

    I know alam mo yan bro.

    [Reply]

    Peter Reply:

    yes I also tried that bookmarking + the inbound links and link exchange do also KW research (very important) pero ganun pa din. mahina. hmmm.. can you share the social bookmarks and the sites where you do link exchange at yung mga kung saan mo sinubmit. baka kasi mali yung site na sinasubmitan ko hehehe baka spam sites yun. except for the google, yahoo at bing search engines ha

    [Reply]

    ark Reply:

    Use the SexyBookmarks WordPress plugin. Magparegister ka sa lahat ng kasali dun at ibookmark mo every post mo sa kanila. Do this until maban ung account mo for spamming. Hehe, that’s true. Ilang accounts ko na ang naban sa kanila pero pwede ka namang magparegister ulit e.
