i'm going to provide this tip today even though i planned on waiting and watching a few days top track the results ..however so far im shocked at the results ..overwhelmed you might say ctr is up..alot cpc is up..alot.. cpm (now called rpm in new interface) is way up
now i expect these results to fluctuate and maybe become less impressive by the end of the day today (i added this tip to my site yesterday about this time of day and had a record day today ..if the trend continues ..could be drasticly higher then yesterday
i'm tempted to wait just 15 minutes or so before posting till the next update on the adsense to see if it drops alot or not but ok heres the tip
edit the robots.txt as follows (note robots.txt is inthe dashboard the link says search engines) (note i changed the color of tyhe 2 lines u should add to avoid confusion add only the red lines above all others)
those 1st 2 lines added must come 1st above all others and those are going to crank up your income
by allowing relevent ads to be served on pages they couldnt be served on before
by helping the adsense bot crawl your site fully
i was scepticle thinking it would only affect pages like inbox and stuff
but with highest ctr cpc and rpm ever immediately after putting it in there im convinced it was a big help
i did wait for the next update and...at noon i now have made as much ias i had yesterday at midnight
today may double my highest paid day so far..
i'll report back tonight when the days totals are finalized
oh..just as a comparison
this time of day i typicaly have made about the same ammount it went up since starting to write this so making more in 1 hour tghen i did in 5 typincaly..
now id be shocked if the finalized end of day totals were 5 times higher then average..but at this time.. the rpm is actualy 6 times higher then ive ever seen it
so there u have it..add it see what it does for you..
if it helps ya have a better holiday this year i'll let ya buy me a pressent haha
i'll post updates later today and let ya all know if the trend continued or evened out to something less impressive
Hi Soareagle !
It's like magical !!! Where did you get that code ? Is it legal stuff ? ;-)))
I'll let you know if it changes something for me.
By the way, at the end of the month what is your eCPM with adwords ??? 1$, 2$, 3$, more ? less ? Howmany impressions do you give to Adwords ?
it came from adsence every now and then they send a message like "we analized your site and found these changes may increase rregvenues" usualy its ..make ads bigger move ads higher abiove the fiold etc
yesterday they sent this tip and wham it worked
my cpm was typicaly abolut a dollar ..maybe a dollar 50 never 2 (at least for long) today its between 4 and 6
i average 10k impressions a day
Thanks for the answer !
By the way... I've clicked on couple of your Ads ! That might explain the fluctuation... ;-)
my rpm/cpm is still 4 times higher then it usualy is..
Are you sure that you're not just seeing standard fluctuation?
The additional lines for the adsense robot aren't really giving it any extra permissions beyond what it has in the standard robots.txt.
its alowing the crawlking of every page including those blocked by the regular robots txt and yea i am seeing standard fluctuations between 4 and 6 dollar cpm i usualy see fluctuations from 50 cents to a dollar maybe at the highest 1.50 it is remaining 4 times higher then typical
The pages that are blocked by the regular robots.txt probably don't have anything in them that would help target ads for end users. In most cases they lead to a 404 or similar.
I've seen spikes of 5x typical cpm for a day or two, so I'm not sure there's a correlation between you making that change and seeing better results. Will be interested to see if it's sustained though.
thats why i hesitated to post this till i gathered more data butttt seeing it consistantly 4-5 times higher then ive ever seen it i decided to post it let ppl try it and if they see simular results then we will know how well it worked
but i am seeing a huge huge huge diference
current cpm $5.45
2 days ago i was lucky to get $1.20
I just modified mine to match yours. I'll keep you posted. Is it possible that you have restricted access to some pages for members only? I have done that with member profiles via custom code. Maybe, this is why it is working for you. Phil, do you think it may be something like this?
Yeah, I didn't change anything recently but I just experienced a big spike that lasted about 4 days. Who knows why, but my cost per click went up to .75 from .25... I wish that spike would take off its coat and have a seat.
I have seen this too (on non-Ning sites) and suspect that it's the result of at least a couple of things:
1) Google used to give new signups to AdSense $100 in ads to try it out. At the moment they're giving away $250. That's a large injection of funds that Google is paying so that newcomers can try out AdSense.
2) We're approaching xmas, and in my experience there are prolonged spikes as increased holiday marketing takes place within certain areas.
