To say that “AdSense Secrets” changed my life is a vast understatement. When I first heard about this eBook, back in 2005, I was making less than a couple of cents per day, so even though Joel Comm promised that you could ten double that amount, I didn’t think it could help me.
I used some free advice to grow my income, and then I got hold of AdSense Secrets version 2. Some small changes made a huge impact, so I purchased AdSense Secrets 3.0, when it came out. I also have AdSense Secrets 4 and now AdSense Secrets 5.
Below, you can see my first statistics from AdSense. I tested the system by clicking one of the ads, and when I couldn’t see any trace of it, I contacted AdSense to ask if this stuff was working or not. The kind employee told me that it was against their rules to click on your own ads. He, he, those were the days…
In short, Joel Comm put AdSense on his sites several years ago, and made only a little more than I did. He figured that he could do better and started testing and tweaking.
He found out which placements were the best, which colours to use, and which sizes and types were the best.
He multiplied his income many times, just like I did, after I followed some of the advice he gave. Each new version has been an improvement. If you want to make money with AdSense, this book is a must. I bet that everybody would agree to that. Joel Comm is THE expert on AdSense.
Even though I’ve read AdSense Secrets 2, 3, 4 and now 5, I still learn something new from Joel Comm. In version 4 I learnt a sneaky trick to split test ads. This time, I learnt that you can change the font size and type… Hm, I should have known, but I hadn’t found out myself. I also changed the colour scheme in agreement with Joel’s recommendations. He also taught me a smart trick about how to use AdSense for search in a effective manner.
Even small tweaks can have a huge impact on your income. That’s what I’ve learnt over time. And with this book in your hand, you’ll get inspiration to do those changes. You’ll learn what will probably work best, and what to do if your site is different.
That you can be sure to make as much AdSense income as possible. Even though I haven’t added new content to my biggest site for years, I still tweak the ads after Joel’s advice. And it works. The income increases, and the click through rate increases. That’s good, isn’t it? 😀
My favourite chapter is probably Chapter 3: How To Tweak Your Ads To Make Them Click! – The Principles Of Optimization. It reminded me that you can always do better, although you already have a high click through. However, I liked the whole book. You can really tell that it’s written by an expert on the topic.
One of the chapters… Chapter 2 – Signing up made easy 😉 Well, since I already had an AdSense account, I skipped this chapter, but I admit… It’s a must for a beginner.
To be honest, this is not a matter of should you or should you not. There’s only one option. I made the mistake of not buying the book right away (it was $97 back then), and I later found out that my hesitation time had cost me around $1,800.
