I use http://www.adsblacklist.com to keep the crap MFA ads away and it seems to work for me pretty well.


I looked at this just now and I'm a little uncertain how it's used?

Do I understand that as an adsense publisher I can use it to get a list of sites that bid super low on PPC?


Yes, you plug those urls in the competitive ads filter.

If you look a little you can even find free lists - adsblacklist gives you a list of 50 urls for free - you have to pay for the 200 list - which is the maximum that the competitive ads filter supports.

This article explains things more clearly.

Adsense has never worked well for me. I´m going to take a look at HaveAds. I am also experimenting with Bidvertiser and AuctionAds on my newest blog, http://www.diywedplan.com. I´m alternating the two types of ads. The blog is very new, so far I haven´t earned anything, but AuctionAds is the only one that anyone has even clicked on.

Google Adsense success

Postby ownerwillcarry » Sun Jul 15, 2007 4:35 am

Hello,
This is only my second month using Adsense. Between June 16th and June 30th I made $511.00. It’s now only July 15th and I’m already up to $565.00. I’ve been an Internet marketer for years and I’ve never seen anything that has worked so well so fast as Google Adsense. That’s just my two cents……

This is my first year in anything Internet Marketing. Done right and tested a lot, you can do a good deal with Adsense. Jeremy Schoemaker is a prime example of how well you can do (http://www.shoemoney.com).

Thanks for the encouragement. I'm right there in the ball park with you. I expect to earn about $1500.00 by the end of the month...and this is just my second month! A month and a half ago I had never even heard of Google Adsense so needless to say, I'm ecstatic. Adsense will be my number 1 revenue earner within 3 months.

I have had better luck with auction ads in fact I wouldn't call it luck at all. Its far out performing my adsense ads by the 1000 mark. I haven't been a big adsense fan but I think they are ok in moderation.

Auction ads gives you more control over what your visitors will see, in fact you are able to link up to any specific ebay auction through auction ads as well. Its as easy as adsense to set up as well. Or you can set up your own keywords campaigns best of all every person that signs up new to ebay and buys an item within 30 days you get an ACRU fee $25 per person and that really ads up plus the commission off the sale. Its pretty cool to see an item for $3.00 and get a $25 commission on that one item. In fact I've replaced most of my adsense banners with auction ad banners for that reason alone.

If you're interested check my sig line you can visit the site from there. I think this is a better wave for the future.

Thanks for the tip Michael. I've never been one to put all my eggs in one basket....no matter how beautiful that basket may be today. I will definately check out AuctionAds tonight and get back to you....

Ownerwillcarry,

Yea, auction ads can make a good deal of money on top of what you are already doing with adsense. The other good part with auction ads is its a fairly new company & getting in now before everyone is in is where you can pull some good cash. Not that it won't be effective down the line in 5 years or more.

I use both and they both bring me money even outside of my affiliate products that also make money. So far though auction ads for me is the champion of the ad world income. It sounds like you are still doing well with adsense though so I wouldn't ditch adsense at all- but rather use both in conjunction.

I still do adsense marketing. However, it is so much more competitive today than three years ago.

I read a stat somewhere that the number of pages on the internet doubles every 6 months. With that kind of volume of new content pouring online you need to focus on great content to get visitors coming back.

My next target is to regularly make $200 per month. I have several sites in different niches contributing to the total, from forums to blogs. It's a slow, but steady process, and if you follow the 'rules' you can do well. I'm expecting about $150 this month.

Once you learn the basics and apply them, you can make some nice cash. Applying it to a niche that pays well is a big plus. I have a few good books at my MyBizTools site that could help anyone with their Adsense. Feel free to grab what you want. :wink:

Here is a screenie of yesterday's earnings from my Romantic Oregon Coast Vacations site:
