Pros and Cons of Google AdSense

Adsense is a great way to increase the revenue from your websites and it has proven to be simple and effective to incorporate. However there are negative aspects to Adsense and alternatives that you may want to consider. Clearly the largest negative impact with the Adsense program is the chance of Google closing your accounts. Most of the time this happens because of ‘click fraud’, which happens when a person, automated script or computer program imitates a legitimate person clicking on an ad, for the purpose of generating income without having an actual interest in the ad’s link.

This happens to many unsuspecting Adsense publishers. It could be your competition doing this in order to shut you down, or the competitor of whoever is advertising on your page, looking to drive their marketing costs up. The simple fact is that there are many who will do this just because they can. If you want to prevent this from happening to you it is important that you monitor your campaigns. You can also limit your ads to specified countries, keep a close eye on where your ads are
displayed, try to target high-value sites and monitor your results with a good web analytics tool.

It is also important to keep track of any changes that you make your webpages, because anything you do to your site could end up being a big mistake costing you a great deal of Adsense income. If you make a change and see that your revenue has decreased then it is vital to your income that you can quickly identify and fix the problem. You constantly need to make sure your site is in the spotlight of search engines when people are searching for whatever it is your site is about.

If you fail to do that you won’t have any visitors, and that of course means you won’t have any Adsense revenue. In a way this is nothing new, as any form of generating revenue on the Internet with advertising has such a drawback. And finally, another major problem is that you constantly have to feed your site with better and better content. Now, of course, certain sites are very well geared towards doing this but with some types of content this is rather hard to achieve. If you are having trouble then you may want to hire a ghost writer to generate effective content.

When writing original content, the best thing an Adsense publisher can do is research a topic thoroughly and then return to writing with lots of information. Put the information into your own words, and inject your own opinion in to it. These are just a few of the pros and cons of using Adsense for generating profits. Now the choice of whether or not Adsense will work for you is completely up to you.
