If you don't remove allrepparttar unwanted ads being displayed on your website, you might end up hurting your Adsense performance online. The more targeted you can get your Google Adsense ads to display on each page,repparttar 147207 better your chances at being able to make more money. Try to take a moment every week to studyrepparttar 147208 ads being displayed on your website.

Open up a note pad, or word document and record allrepparttar 147209 websites you don't want to be displayed anymore. Add these sites to your "filter list" within your Adsense account.

Remember to addrepparttar 147210 website (within your filter list) like so: smartads.info - withoutrepparttar 147211 www. Adding anything after or beforerepparttar 147212 url will only preventrepparttar 147213 company from displaying one of their many ads like so (www.site.com/ads/1.html). This way you stop anything fromrepparttar 147214 entire website from showing up within your Adsense campaign online. The more you optimize your Adsense filter,repparttar 147215 better your performance will pick up andrepparttar 147216 less non-related ads will be displayed on your website.

One constant that holds true with Adsense:

The more pages you have with your Adsense campaign being displayed,repparttar 147217 more you WILL make. People who have online networks immediately can profit from Google Adwords because they haverepparttar 147218 power to add their Adsense boxes & banners onto multiple websites, possibly 1000's of pages.

Should you add Adsense to your website?

If you own a small company that has a brochure type website that gets maybe 50-100 visitors a day, I recommend NOT adding Adsense to your site. It will never make enough money with that kind of traffic. Remember: Your Adsense campaign needs to make over $100 to get paid out.

If your company receives around 500-1000+ visitors a day, you can now start considering to make money through Google. Adsense is all about numbers. Playrepparttar 147219 numbers to make more money. In fact, try making goals for yourself to make X amount of dollars through your Adsense account by a certain time. Doing this will only increase your business and make your company more powerful online by increasingrepparttar 147220 amount of traffic it receives.

For multiple websites, channels are important:

Google allows you to trackrepparttar 147221 performance of multiple websites all in one account which ultimately gives yourepparttar 147222 ability to track how many visitors you're getting for each website. It also allows you to work harder on those sites that aren't up to par.

I consistently look at each individual website channel to work harder at promotingrepparttar 147223 ones that aren't performing well. By doing this, we increaserepparttar 147224 amount of promotion going intorepparttar 147225 websites that under perform, and in turn eventually increaserepparttar 147226 business for those websites as well. The more you promote your website,repparttar 147227 morerepparttar 147228 exposure you will ultimately deliver for your Adsense campaign and your company.

Google Search with Adsense:

To top all that off, you can add Google search within your site to give visitors a search function for your content and to allow people to also click on your Adsense program. Please note that for Google search to work, your website and all of its content pages must already be indexed by Google. Addingrepparttar 147229 Google search bar to your site right away won't help your visitors at all.

7 Top Ways to Avoid Link Theft

Using your web browser viewrepparttar page code as in 2 above and check forrepparttar 147092 robots meta tag atrepparttar 147093 top ofrepparttar 147094 page betweenrepparttar 147095 <head> and </head> tags.

If it says : <meta name="robots" content="index,follow"> or <meta name="robots" content="all"> then all is OK.

Ifrepparttar 147096 tag says : <meta name="robots" content="noindex,follow"> or <meta name="robots" content="index,nofollow"> or <meta name="robots" content="noindex,nofollow"> or <meta name="robots" content="none">

Then this page is not being given full access torepparttar 147097 search engines. Do not link to this sort of page.

  • Ifrepparttar 147098 robots meta tag you checked is OK but you still suspect a problem with a low PR then you should checkrepparttar 147099 sites robots.txt file. To do this typerepparttar 147100 main URL ofrepparttar 147101 site into a web browser but add robots.txt for example: "http://www.domainyourlinkingto.com/robots.txt"

    The robots.txt file is read byrepparttar 147102 search engines and it tells itrepparttar 147103 directory and files it can access. A simple robots.txt file might look something like:

    User-agent: * Disallow: /cgi-bin Disallow: /forms Disallow: /contact.html

    Ifrepparttar 147104 URL ofrepparttar 147105 page you were linking to was : "http://www.domainyourlinkingto.com/dir/web-design.html"

    Then you would want to be sure that inrepparttar 147106 robots.txt file you should NOT see :

    Disallow: /dir Disallow: /dir/web-design.html

    This is tellingrepparttar 147107 search engine robot not to index or followrepparttar 147108 links inrepparttar 147109 link directory called dir and to ignorerepparttar 147110 links page web-design.html.

    And you should not see : User-agent: * Disallow: /

    If you see : User-agent: * Disallow:

    Then that's OK.

    All sounds a bit complicated I know, but there is no easier way to explain this sort of thing. Some reciprocal link manager checking software will also detectrepparttar 147111 incorrect use ofrepparttar 147112 meta robots tag and also checkrepparttar 147113 robots text file.

    However some link manager software I have experienced, incorrectly reported a link page as blocked byrepparttar 147114 robots text file because it read "Disallow:" as prohibitingrepparttar 147115 search engine when in fact it means allow (see above). It is "Disallow: /" that would tellrepparttar 147116 search engine not to indexrepparttar 147117 site.

  • Once you've completed your link exchange and donerepparttar 147118 checks to ensure you're not being cheated you must then check your links at regular intervals. Once you have more than about 50 links you will soon find link checking becomes a time consuming process. It's far better to build your link directory using some form of link manager software that will automatically check your links at intervals you specify.

    To help you in makingrepparttar 147119 right choices about setting up a link directory read my article "10 Mistakes to Avoid When Setting Up a Link Directory" which you can find at http://www.webpageaddons.com/link-manager-mistakes.htm

  • Of course not all link theft is intentional, sometimes it's justrepparttar 147120 webmaster not knowing thatrepparttar 147121 way he has set up his link directory will not provide search engine link benefit to anyone that links to them.

    However some link theft is intentional,repparttar 147122 webmaster knows exactly what they are doing and by following this advice you can avoid being their next victim.
