Adsense – The Powerful Passive Income Generator

Written by Matt Bacak

Webmasters have a revolutionary new method of collecting income from their websites. Whereas inrepparttar past advertising revenue was reserved for those sites with large a coming and going of visitors, now even teenagers are making a quick buck with their online hobby blogs. People place adsense on their online family photo albums, their blogs and their business sites. The minimum you would get, even with a small amount of traffic, is for adsense to pay for your hosting costs.

Adsense revolutionizedrepparttar 145893 world of paid advertising; banner advertising is based onrepparttar 145894 number of visitors you attract to your site, sorepparttar 145895 number of “banner impressions” dictaterepparttar 145896 revenue you receive. Google Adsense is quite different; it isrepparttar 145897 number of visitors that actually click onrepparttar 145898 advertising that determine how much you earn.

There is also a great disparity between payouts; because advertisers bid uprepparttar 145899 price for certain keywords, some ads pay more than others. As such, a site with few visitors but expensive keywords in their google ads can potentially still pull in a hefty payout.

Google really has takenrepparttar 145900 web by storm; attracted to passive income, more and more people are seriously capitalizing on their Google adsense advertising. Some ofrepparttar 145901 highest earners manage to attract enough visitors to make a four figure monthly income, just from using adsense alone! This is not one of those get-rich-quick schemes and Google’s adsense success is largely thanks torepparttar 145902 fact that Google already enjoyed a fantastic reputation before introducingrepparttar 145903 program. They are a publicly traded company with physical headquarters. This, andrepparttar 145904 fact that anyone can apply to use adsense for free, has caused millions of people to sign up. For google it was a smart move, because now they extend their presence to countless websites and generate millions of dollars in advertising revenue. People were never reluctant to sign up, becauserepparttar 145905 program is free. Google benefits by more people using adsense, so offering it for free wasrepparttar 145906 best thing they could do.

One ofrepparttar 145907 driving forced behindrepparttar 145908 program are its relevance to each and every page on a website;repparttar 145909 program picks up keywords appearing inrepparttar 145910 website copy and automatically displays relevant ads. This increasesrepparttar 145911 chances of people clicking through, andrepparttar 145912 webmaster collecting more revenue.

The Three Principles Of HTML Code Optimization

Written by George Peirson

Just like spring cleaning a house,repparttar html code of your web pages should get periodic cleaning as well. Over time, as changes and updates are made to a web page,repparttar 145892 code can become littered with unnecessary clutter, slowing down page load times and hurtingrepparttar 145893 efficiency of your web page. Cluttered html can also seriously impact your search engine ranking.

This is especially true if you are using a WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) web design package such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver. These programs will speed up your web site creation, but they are not that efficient at writing clean html code.

We will be focusing this discussion onrepparttar 145894 actual html coding, ignoring other programming languages that may be used in a page such as JavaScript. Inrepparttar 145895 code examples I will be using ( and ) characters instead of correct html so thatrepparttar 145896 code examples will display properly in this newsletter.

Up until recently when coding a page in HTML we would be using tags such asrepparttar 145897 (font) tag and (p) paragraph tags. Between these tags would be our page content, text, images and links. Each time a formatting change was made onrepparttar 145898 page new tags were needed with complete formatting forrepparttar 145899 new section. More recently we have gainedrepparttar 145900 ability to use Cascading Style Sheets, allowing us to writerepparttar 145901 formatting once and then refer to that formatting several times within a web page.

In order to speed up page load times we need to have fewer characters onrepparttar 145902 page when viewed in an html editor. Since we really do not want to remove any of our visible content we need to look torepparttar 145903 html code. By cleaning up this code we can remove characters, thereby creating a smaller web page that will load more quickly.

Over time HTML has changed and we now have many different ways to dorepparttar 145904 same thing. An example would berepparttar 145905 code used to show a bold type face. In HTML we have two main choices,repparttar 145906 (strong) tag andrepparttar 145907 (b) tag. As you can seerepparttar 145908 (strong) tag uses 5 more characters thanrepparttar 145909 (b) tag, and if we considerrepparttar 145910 closing tags as well we see that usingrepparttar 145911 (strong)(/strong) tag pair uses 10 more characters thanrepparttar 145912 cleaner (b)(/b) tag pair.

This is our First Principle of clean HTML code: Userepparttar 145913 simplest coding method available.

HTML hasrepparttar 145914 ability of nesting code within other code. For instance we could have a line with three words whererepparttar 145915 middle word was in bold. This could be accomplished by changingrepparttar 145916 formatting completely each timerepparttar 145917 visible formatting changes. Consider this code:

(font face=”times”)This(/font) (font face=”times”)(strong)BOLD(/strong)(/font) (font face=”times”)Word(/font) This takes up 90 characters.

This is very poorly written html and is what you occasionally will get when using a WYSIWYG editor. Sincerepparttar 145918 (font) tags are repeatingrepparttar 145919 same information we can simply nestrepparttar 145920 (strong) tags insiderepparttar 145921 (font) tags, and better yet userepparttar 145922 (b) tag instead ofrepparttar 145923 (strong) tag. This would give us this code (font face=”times)This (b)BOLD(/b) Word(/font), taking up only 46 characters.
