Get the most out of those clicks

I tried using the Competitive Ad Filter feature of Google Adsense and my earnings per day tripled overnight! I still get the same number of clicks, but the amount I get per click increased 3x!

What I did was to block those low paying advertisements. Which advertisements are these? If you see advertisement that says, "Here are the top sites on..." or "We've got the chosen sites on...", block them on your account by using the Competitive Ad Filter. You just need to specify their website address.

These sites are Made For Adsense (MFA) sites. If you visit their site (don't click on your ads, ok? It's a violation of the TOS!) by typing directly the website address on your browser's address bar, you will notice that what they got are trash information and a couple of Google Adsense ads. These sites will not invest that much on a single click. Most likely, they just pay $0.01 to $0.03 per click. So, why let them advertise on your site? Block them so that only those high paying advertisers with quality content will appear on your site. You'll notice a dramatic change on your Adsense earnings. With the same number of clicks, you can double, triple, or even quadruple your earnings overnight!

Check my blogs and you will not see these sites appearing on my ads anymore. And everytime I see such kind of advertisement, I simply block them. Google Adsense allows you to block 200 URLs. I think that's more than enough to block these MFA sites.

For more information on using the Competitive Ad Filter, read this. Please note that changes will not take effect immediately. According to Google Adsense help..."It usually takes about 4 hours for your changes to take effect, so you'll continue to see ads for these sites on your pages for a little while."

That's all folks!

This is an interesting post. I am tempted to try it. Except for this. I thought that ads are put on our sites on a competitive auction basis. That means ads which bid higher gets a better chance of getting displayed. So if an advertiser bid lower, his chance of having his ads displayed is lower. So if we block his ad out, does this mean that advertiser who bid even lower than than get displayed, or even public service ad get displayed?

@peter... there's nothing wrong in trying. you can try it and if it doesn't work for you, you can easily remove the block on these MFA sites. I tried it and was surprised with the results. I got the biggest Adsense earning per day today, with the same number of clicks, my earnings tripled. I don't know if I'm just lucky today, but let me see what will happen tomorrow, or in a week.

Kutote ad filtering to double income is great, but the thing is, adsense is worldwide thus the ads i see in my country wont be the same as you see in your country so this makes the process a little hard , if we can ask the people or friends from the countries that visit our blogs the most in my case the U.K and US; what ads do they see we can get MFA sites out of the way.

This seems like a really good idea I'm going to try it on my site and see what happens, thanks for the tip.
