I have been doing AdSense for a long time. With failing time after time until I succeeded I know how to reach that $100 a day mark. I see a lot of bad information and bad advice on the internet regarding AdSense. While a lot of people think that is not possible to make money with AdSense. I can tell you that you are wrong. 80% of my income is generated by AdSense. In this long article I will explain precisely how to reach that $100 A day.
AdSense is a numbers game. How much you can earn is directly connected to the amount of visitors you have and how much you can convert. In the end the important part is how much you earn per click. The key is to optimize that.
The system I will explain in detail is based on the method of nice mini-sites. The concept is to find longtail keyword phrase groups for which you can rank #1 on Google fast without building too much backlinks. My aim is for maximum 10 backlinks to rank your landing page.
The First Stage
In order to make some money with AdSense we need to have traffic. In this article I will assume that we do not want to pay for traffic so we have to rely on organic traffic brought in from search engines. Remember that 80% of the traffic will come from Google. We are not going to write articles for article directories. This takes too much time. Our goal is to earn money as soon as possible.
We need to find longtail keywords with minimal competition so that we can rank #1 in the Serps fast for each target keyword that we want to target.
The Second Stage
After we get the traffic to our website, we need to make sure that we can convert them. With conversion rates as high as possible. Because the people that reached your site will not come to it anymore. So we only have one shot to do this right. Our target will be 5%. That means that I will aim at 1 click for every 20 visitors. After you become a expert in this area you can easy reach 10% click through rates.
Conversions depend on the quality of your website. Think layout, colors, information. I have found an particular WordPress theme that seems to increase my conversions. The name is Bluesense. Just Google it and you will find it.
This is the single most important part of the plan. The goal is find high volume keywords with low competition. This is not as hard as you may imagine. I use a tool called Micro Niche Finder, but there is enough software out there that can help you. Recently I heard Market Samurai but I did not test the product yet. My goal is to find keyword that have a minimal of 50 searches a day (1500 a Month) and competition under the 40,000 in quotes.
The best scenario is to find keywords with 100 searches a day and competition under 20,000. This is not difficult to do.
Getting ranked #1 is Google is easy if you follow the criteria I posted above. Most of the sites that you compete with have low quality backlinks. What does this mean? If you build 10 – 20 quality backlinks you will be able to easily outrank the competition. The aim is to get #1 in Google. So do some research with Yahoo Site Explorer to see how much backlinks the present #1 site has and build backlinks to outrank them.
You can build great backlinks using web 2.0 properties like squidoo etc.
After that use Onlywire to do social bookmarking making the links even stronger. In the past you could build linkwheels but this does not work anymore.
Stick to this daily and keep building and you will see the power of organic traffic.
