1. Best Contextual Advertising Blog
Through my experience and research, I found that there are certain criteria that users end up with your blogs.
-When they want to buy something.
-When they search for certain information like product or service etc.
-When they have extra money to spend.
-Many new visitors than regular visitors.
-Visitors who are interested in ads not for information in your blogs.
So, if you are up to online contextual advertising, please make sure you create your next blog that fall under the above criteria. And if contextual advertising is not working for you as you expect, be sure to check out other forms to monetize your blog such as affiliate programs and CPM-based advertising.
2. Build High Quality Content
Good content will bring visitors to your blog. Don't forget to create links inside your content as it will bring your visitors back to your blog.
3. Apply Terms and Policy of Contextual Ad Network
I don't think you want to lose a good revenue source that may be giving you as much as $1,000 a month just because you did not read the terms that you have supposedly agreed. One of it is Google Adsense which is very strict in its policy. Read and understand the terms of service. Its' purpose is to spells out the do's and don'ts that will guide you in your program participation.
4. Analyzing Data From Report
As a registered member of contextual advertising program, you will be provided with reports that tell you how effective the program is working on your blog. The basic metrics will include page/ad impressions, number of clicks, click-through rate (CTR) and earnings. Some provide effective CPM, or the cost per thousand impressions. These metrics can help you analyze what is working well in your blog, and whether you can improve your revenues.
5. Try Again And Again
You should try and see what works best for your blog. If the revenue increases, then stick with it. If not, try something else. You can manipulate 3 things to increase your contextual advertising revenues. These are ad impressions, number of clicks, and click-through rate. Even if your traffic is not growing as fast as you hope for, you can grow your revenues if you improve your click-through rate (CTR). And you can improve the performance of the contextual ads in your blog by experimenting on layout, colors, ad format, and number of ads.
6. RSS Feed
You should do proper submission to the RSS and Feed Directories such as Yahoo, Weblogs, Blo.gs, Technorati to increase your blog visibility.
7. Keywords Tagging
Advertisers bid for keywords and the amount they are bidding affects your contextual advertising earnings. To protect your revenues from wild fluctuations, the best approach would be to diversify your keywords tagging by developing content based on different topics.
8. Build At Least 10 Blogs
Putting all your eggs in one basket is not a good strategy. The more blogs you have, more revenue you can expect from your contextual ads. If one blog's contextual advertising dries up, you still have others to enjoy.
