Are You Using Both Sides of the GoogleCoin?
By now most of you realise that Google can give our websites the ability to appear within their results pages using a Pay Per Click model (PPC).
This is called Google Adwords
Hopefully, you will also be aware that that Google offers
website owners the ability to display these PPC results on
their own websites.
For this privilege, Google will pay the website owner a
share of the PPC revenue earnt from any click throughs on
the results displayed on their website.
This is called Google Adsense
So there you have both sides of the Google coin.
On one side, the ability to drive low cost targeted traffic
and on the other side, the ability to generate revenue from
your existing traffic.
You'd think that was the end of it but really it is only the
Heads or Tails? Heads it is?.
Let's look at Adwords
There are those that think?
?write your ad, pays your money and away you go.
Which to 80% of the people using Adwords, this seems to work
OK for them. Remember I said OK!
For the other 20% , these guys and gals, are testing,
changing, innovating and working Google as hard as they can.
One such character is Chris Carpenter , whose GoogleCash is
pioneering in the way that he works Google and now lets
other work Google just as hard.
"Like Bruce Lee taught us the art of fighting without
fighting, Chris Carpenter shows us the art of website
revenue generation without a website!"
Chris has shown examples of Adwords campaigns that cost
cents to set up but pay dollars in commissions. None of my
current investments give me such a high ROI.
I have tried my hand at it and I am currently making around
$4000 per month just from this one product. I am only
spending $250 on Adwords to get this return.
Why not have a look at Google Cash yourself.
Tails you win!
Secondly, while most people just cut and paste Adsense code
into all the pages of their site, they just leave it at that
thinking job done!
They don't explore the high value keywords in their market
Why do that?
Well if you knew what the more profitable keywords and terms
are, you can write content and these words can be displayed.
Google Adsense will then look at your page content and work
out what to display.
You could double your income by changing words on your site.
Maybe Life insurance to life assurance or personal loan to
loans or adverse credit to bad credit.
Also sites tend to use one format and one position for the
Test, test, test
Try different layouts and work out which ones work best for
you. You may be surprised.
Test, test, test
There are several tools that can help you identify keywords
but the best for you would be either the Google Adwords
program or Overture view bids tool.
Don't worry about thinking you are doing anything wrong. In
fact, think about it - you will be creating relevant content
for Google to display and for their users to read. Users are
happy, Google are happy and you will earn more revenue from
Adsense. So hopefully you'll be happy too!
A Win Win situation!
Again, like most things rather than reinvent the wheel there
is a whole book on Adsense written my friend William
Charlwood has written The Definitive Guide to Google AdSense
which tells you exactly how to make money by hosting small
ads on your website. It is a detailed road-map of everything
you need to do to get going and then maximise your AdSense
Once you've got it right, you can look forward to a check
every month from Google.

So there you are, there are two sides to the Google coin.
Are you using both sides!

Lin-Manuel Miranda and three of his Hamilton collaborators have purchased New York City's beloved Drama Book Shop, which had celebrated its 100th birthday last year but announced in the fall it would close this month because of a large rent increase...
They bought the store from Rozanne Seelen, whose husband, the late Arthur Seelen, had acquired it in 1958. She "sold it for the cost of the remaining inventory, some rent support in the store's final weeks, and a pledge to retain her as a consultant," the Times wrote.

This coming year marks the first time in two decades that a large body of copyrighted works will lose their protected status ' - a shift that will have profound consequences for publishers and literary estates, which stand to lose both money and creative control.

The sudden deluge of available works traces back to legislation Congress passed in 1998, which extended copyright protections by 20 years....

Audrey Geisel, 97, philanthropist and wife of the late Theodor Seuss Geisel, died on December 19.
Petite and often understated, she was a fierce protector of her husband's creations and legacy, and a major donor to institutions he supported and helped to flourish, including UC San Diego and the San Diego Zoo. She founded Dr. Seuss Enterprises in 1993 to maintain the Dr. Seuss trademark.
Cathy Goldsmith, president and publisher of Random House Children's Dr. Seuss program, said, "Audrey had such a quick wit and smart sense of humor, which made her a pleasure to work with and be around. I will always remember her sparkle. Audrey could light up a room, and I know that her brightness found its way into Ted's work, and her tireless advocacy for his books and our publishing."
