You might have noticed that there is no Adsense on this Blog. I did have adsense on (for a short while) when the blog was a blogspot blog, but soon came to the conclusion that having adsense on this type of blog is an utter waste of time…
- Marketers blogs are generally aimed at other Marketers, Marketers are very adsense savvy.
- Smart Pricing! Search Google for more on that, also jensense has a good write-up on it.
What to do instead?
I have found that an excellent alternative to having adsense on a blog is to promote good affiliate products. Promoting good products leads to more conversation (always a good thing) and will make readers more aware of what is going on outside their own sphere of influence…
The point being
Adsense is not good for Blogs aimed at adsense-savvy people. My own findings over the course of the last year indicate that when I added adsense to my blog, my overall earnings went down, even though clicks went up!
- Do you really need those adsense blocks on your blog?
- Are they really bringing value to your readers?
