Top 10 Adsense Mistakes To Avoid While Blogging for Money
As a beginner, most people do these common AdSense mistakes as they always try to make more money from AdSense quickly. But unknowingly they are putting their AdSense account in danger.
Here are the top 10 Adsense mistakes made by web publishers:
1. Clicking on own Ads
As a beginner people think that the more clicks they get the more the income it will generate. But do you that the AdSense system is very smart and can easily determine which clicks are natural and which are intentional or fraud even if you try to click from various systems to increase your earning. This is a very common reason to get your AdSense account banned.
Not only that, but many people also involve their family and friends to open their website articles and click on the Ads. This is a very bad practice and honestly, you will not earn much by such practices. As Google AdSense earning depends on many things e.g. if you are getting clicks from High CPC countries, if advertisers are bidding high on your page etc.
2. Tempering Adsense Code:
Are you good at coding and can rewrite the AdSense code to get more clicks from your website visitors? Then control your skill as this can lead to your AdSense account banned. Understand one simple thing that your website is just a place where Advertisers are showing their Ads. So if you play with their Ads, in return you have to face the AdSense Ban. So, avoid such AdSense mistakes to safeguard your account. Keep the Ads as per Google and make them looking naturally only.
3. More number of Ad units
Although right now there is no such limit of showing ads on a page, it is good to keep the count low. According to the new ad placement policy, there is no limit on the number of ads you can place on a given page which means: Unlimited Content Units: Publishers can now put more than three AdSense for content ad units on a given page.
Otherwise, your website may look like a spammy place where users will not be able to read the content easily because of lots of Ads. In case Ads are disturbing the user experience, it may hit you badly and your AdSense account gets banned as well.
4. Using Violated Content Type:
If your blog niche or you are writing content on copyrighted items or promoting piracy or sharing pornographic content, then you may get Adsense warning. And in case you have not attended the warning, this may lead to an AdSense account ban. You can check out more details here.
- Intellectual property abuse
- Dangerous or derogatory content
- Sexually explicit content
- Child sexual abuse material and pedophilia
5. Creating Multiple Accounts
If you have an AdSense account, that is enough to make money form your multiple websites. Yes, you don’t need a different account for every website. But many people apply for multiple AdSense accounts in different family member name and apply on different websites. There is nothing wrong, but if you are smart enough then fine otherwise Google AdSense may catch you from your computer IPs, and then you will be in trouble.
These days due to the popularity of event blogging, people play various tricks and create viral websites to earn quick money using AdSense. In that case, they always have more AdSense accounts so that in case one gets banned they can use a different one. As a beginner, don’t fall on such a trap, just make it simple and focus on creating a good website.
6. Not Reading AdSense Policies
We don’t like to read the policies for almost anything. And that is a very dangerous habit especially when you are into business. Over the years, Google AdSense has changed their policies many times. But our internet is flooded with old articles sharing various AdSense tricks. I want to request you to read the latest AdSense policies first so that you can actually understand what you can do with AdSense which will not put you in trouble.
7. Sending Adsense code via Email:
Email marketing is very popular today and many people are driving a good amount of traffic to their blog or sales pages or affiliate page through emails only. That doesn’t mean you can send AdSense code via mail to get more clicks which will straightaway violate Google Adsense terms and conditions. So, be careful and try to avoid such tricks.
8. Driving Unnatural traffic
When we talk about AdSense, it is all about traffic. The more quality traffic on your website from high-CPC countries the more money you can make. But here also many people started applying various tricks. I am sure you have heard about BOT traffic. This means, with the help of some program your website will get a huge amount of traffic from different which will look natural. But Google uses machine learning to identify non-human traffic. So don’t play such a trick, work hard to bring organic traffic to your blog.
9. Avoid Encouraging Clicks
Many people intentionally create such design so that their ads can get more clicks. Try to avoid such kind of designs. Also avoid putting Ads on popups, on content overlay etc. Publishers are not allowed to use language to lead users to click the ads, such as:
- “Feel free to click an ad.”
- “Contribute to the cause by clicking an ad.”
- “Help keep this site running. Check out our sponsors!”
- “We need a new server. Support us!”
You can read this article to understand this point completely. This is one of the common Adsense mistakes many beginners to while designing their website.
10. Using Adsense on Unsupported Language Blog:
If you are blogging on the local language and want to make from Google Adsense, then first check out whether Adsense support your language or not. Recently I have seen many Hindi blogs are using AdSense and I can also observe ads in the Hindi language. Not only that, right now AdSense supports many languages and I am sure you will find your language in this list. If not, then don’t place AdSense code on your blog.
- Chinese (simplified)
- Chinese (traditional)
- Estonian *
- Slovenian *
- Spanish (Latin American)
