5 Tips to Boost Your Adsense Revenue

Google AdSense program has made it easier for webmasters to make money through a website. Webmasters who run an AdSense campaign will display Google's contextual Ads relevant to the content of their sites and thus encouraging visitors to click the ads and earn money for each ad click.

However you will earn very little AdSense revenue if you don't know how to optimize your AdSense ads on your website. Here are some tips to increase your AdSense earning:

1. Focus on one Adsense ad format. The Large Rectangle (336X280) ad format seems to work better than other ad formats because this format tends to result in higher click through rates (CTR). Another reason is that the ads will look like normal web links that visitors use to click on them. It doesn't matter whether the visitors know that they are clicking AdSense ads or not, as long as there are clicking, you earn AdSense commission.

2. Create a custom palette for your ads. Select a color that matches your website's background. If your site's background is white both, the color of ad border and background should set to be white too. Also the color of the ad title should be similar to coloe of the links in your website. This is to make your AdSense ads look like it is part of the web pages. Again, this will boost AdSense CTR.

3. Don't place your AdSense ads at the bottom of your webpages because it is proven to be less effective. Displaying your AdSense ads at the bottom is like hiding your AdSense and thus leads to low CTR and AdSense revenue. Try to put them in the place where people can see them quickly. You will be amazed how the difference between AdSense locations can make when you see your earnings.

4. Try to place your AdSense ads near rich content as visitors main focus usually are your content. There are several ways to insert AdSense ads into your content and one of the ways is place your AdSense just after the end of your content.

5. Try to automate the insertion of your AdSense code into the webpages using SSI (or server side included). Ask your web administrator if your server supports SSI or not. How do you do it? Just save your AdSense code in a text file, name it as “AdSense text”, and upload it to the root directory of the web server. Then use SSI, call the code on other pages. This tip is a time saver especially for those who are using automatic page generators to generate pages on their website.

These are some of the tips that have worked well for some who want to generate hundreds and even thousands on their websites. There are other ways to optimize your AdSense that produce high CTR also. You can learn more tricks by reading in AdSense and webmaster forums.v

Europe backs mobile roaming cap

Holiday makers on beach, AFP

Many people are caught out when using their phone while on holiday


European telecoms chiefs have backed plans to make it cheaper to access data while on a mobile phone abroad.

The measures will slash the cost of sending a text while abroad and reform the way phone operators charge for data calls made when customers roam.

The changes to charges are due to come in to force across the EU's 27 member nations from July 2009.

Some nations and industry groups said the changes could mean higher charges for other services.

Costly calls

"We want to avoid so-called bill shock, when someone gets back from a holiday and gets a nasty surprise," said Luc Chatel, French minister for industry and consumer affairs.

Fujitsu-Siemens offers Lifebook4Life laptop replacement warranty

Fujitsu-Siemens offers Lifebook4Life laptop replacement warrantyFujistu-Siemens in the UK recently announced their Lifebooks4Life program, which entitles you to a new laptop of the same value (after they adjust 10 percent for inflation) every three years for the rest of your life. Of course, you’ll have to purchase a three year warranty with each new machine. That machine has to remain in warranty. That means, no mods, no cheap other name parts etc.

Even so, a new notebook every three years for the price of the warranty? Kind of life joining the notebook of the month club, except in this case it’s every three years. There’s got to be catch. Anyway, life is no fun unless you are free to mod, use cheap substandard parts, rip that tag off the mattress that tells you not to rip it and switch computer brands now and then.

“Yes I Do” soundwave wedding ring

“Yes I Do” soundwave wedding ringHere’s a ring only a married geek could love. Most people engrave their wedding ring with things like “Forever” or “Yes I Do” etc. Instead of engraving those words on a wedding ring, this ring comes with a cut-out of the sound wave of “Yes I Do”. Designer Sakura Koshimizu uses lasers to cut out the shape of the waveform of those sounds.

He’ll use sound editing software, record the sound and the software will show the sound waves on the screen, which can then be fed into a laser. Hey, it’s better then a tattoo. How many ya got now? Pam, Mary, Laura and Britney? Meanwhile you’re married to a Sarah. Yeah, this is much better. You know, just in case.

Steampunk Ray/Particle Beam gunCheck out this sweet Steampunk ray gun. It sports a pretty nice, not so over-the-top Steampunk look but still manages to have lots of nice detail. The “Power supply” consists of a vacuum tube and “brass bits” installed inside the gun. The smoky look of the vacuum tube makes it look as if it has just been fired.

There’s even detail inside of the barrel. The creator added some clockwork parts inside so that it looks like the delicate clockwork mechanism is focusing the particle beam. Nice! The end result is a nice looking Ray Gun suitable for any Sci-Fi adventure.

China produces knock off flip iPhone

China produces knock off flip iPhoneWe’ve seen our share of knock-offs coming out of China, but this one is downright funny. They’ve taken the iPhone and turned it into a clamshell style phone. Funny thing is, it resembles a MacBook more then an actual iPhone.

It is attractive with the brushed aluminum casing and the iPhone look inside, but I’m guessing that performance isn’t up to par. Surprisingly, the camera is 3-megapixels, more than on most mid to low-end phones. It also sports a 2.6-inch display with a resolution of 240 x 320. It’s pretty small at 105 x 53 x 17mm and about 110 grams. One giveaway that this is a crap-gadget are the LED lights under the apple. I guess that’s the best they could do.

Europe's 10bn euro space vision

Member states of the European space agency (Esa) have agreed a 10bn-euro budget at their meeting in The Hague.

In 2008, Europe attached its Columbus lab to the space station









The figure, which covers the next three to five years, represents a substantial increase in funding.

Ministers said the investment in space would help European industry pull through the current economic downturn.

The new money will help build new Earth observation satellites, maintain Esa's participation in the space station, and fund probes to the planets.

"The decisions of this ministerial conference are very important just in the middle of an economic crisis," said Peter Hintze, the minister who led the German delegation.
