What are Google Ad Links?

"Ad Links are a new form of text advertising that we're offering to our AdSense publishers. Usingrepparttar same contextual targeting algorithm that targets Google ads to your content pages, Ad Links units display a list of topics that are relevant to your page. Each topic, when clicked, bringsrepparttar 131531 user to a page of related advertisements", this is how Ad Links are defined by Google.

Basically, Google Ad Links are vertically placed links of 4 or 5 keywords related torepparttar 131532 content of your page. On clicking a link,repparttar 131533 visitor is shown a list of Ads by Google on that particular keyword. Ifrepparttar 131534 visitor clicks on an ad, you get your commission.

So, why do you need to put Ad Links in your page?

Simple. Because you want to earn maximum revenue from each ofrepparttar 131535 pages of your site.

According to Google, you are allowed to put max. 3 Adsense codes. But experts say that displaying too many Adsense ads in a page distractrepparttar 131536 attention ofrepparttar 131537 visitors and they lose interest inrepparttar 131538 site. Therefore it's always advised to put only one Adsense code and that too close to repparttar 131539 main content ofrepparttar 131540 page, to getrepparttar 131541 best results.

No. Because that's where Ad Links come in. Let me describe repparttar 131542 usage of Ad Links with an example :

I have a page on 'Engagement Rings' at : I use 250x250 Square Adsense code withrepparttar 131543 first paragraph ofrepparttar 131544 article. This code displays only 3 Adsense Ads.

However like most victims of identity theft, my friend's co-worker probably thought in terms of "when". As in, "When will I get my life back?"

Privacy Rights Clearinghouse, a non profit consumer organization, reported that identity theft victims spend on average 175 hours trying to recover their identity, often over a period of years. Factor in out of pocket expenses which usually total, usually over $1,500 according torepparttar 131530 Federal Trade Commission and recovery gets painfully magnified.
