1. How to improve Adsene Revenue
Google adsense works on Pageviews, CTR and Ad clicks. If you will place your Google Adsense ad banner in your header the ad banner would receive 100 percent coverage from the blog as it will be appearing on each and every page of your blog. This will not only increase the chances of earning but it will make your CTR% as low as possible. Instead of choosing Text ads you should select both Text and Banner ads. It will increase your Adsense earning really rapidly because it will display both text and high rich media advertisements.
2. Recommended Ad Formats.
The ad slot is 728×90 and placed directly under the title (the h1 tag), a 336×280 post related image, and the by line, just before the start of the article. It extends the length of the body of the content with maybe a 1/2" overhang, whether that is relevant I do not know. It has just enough white space above and below for a clean look.
Almost anybody who works at home with his own website or blog is relying this way or the other on Google AdSense. One of the biggest advantages of the AdSense platform is its ability to provide the most relevant ads which increases its click-through rate. However, there are few common crawling mistakes webmasters can make that can lessen the ad relevancy. To reduce crawler errors first make sure all Jquery scripts that you use are placed within the <head> and </head> tags. Clean up your site HTML structure and remove any script that is increasing your site speed and causing the browser to crash. Google has a list of crawlers for different tasks such as for detecting images, videos, smart phones or AdSense Ads.
In second option we see Site health with detailed information on Page speed performance. Do suggested correction or ignore it if you think it cant helpful. If you’ve ever fretted over how long it took to email a photo, imagine a website trying to load a large image or several images on a single page.
1. Optimize Your Images
Know when to use the appropriate file format for your images. Changing to a different file format can dramatically decrease the file size of an image.
- GIF is ideal for images with few colors like logos.
- JPEG is great for images with lots of colors and details like photographs.
- PNG is the choice when you need high quality transparent images.
Avoid using a larger image than you need just because you can set the
height attributes of
<img> elements in HTML. If you need a 100x100px image and you have a 700x700px image, use an image editor like Photoshop or one of these web-based image editors to resize the image to the needed dimensions. This lowers the file size of the image, thus helping to decrease page loading times.
Best Tips When Making Template For Your blog
Don’t ever try to give unnecessary look to your site go with simpler design. Websites having simple layouts load much faster. Prefer text links over buttons. You can give attractive look to text links also so don’t go for graphical buttons if you have to use many such links in your page.
