Michael Cheney claims to make about $20,000 a month with Google AdSense, which is very impressive. What's more he says that he doesn't have many sites. It's all about how he does it.
I'm surprised that Google didn't yet acquire Michael's product and made it available to all its publishers. After all the more visitors click, the more money Google makes. The material is a very concise and easy to understand, while at the same time is very powerful. There is no bullshit but very good advices. I've already followed some of them and saw a significant improvement in my click-through rate. Next I'm going to work on applying Michael's tips to make each click pay more.
IMHO, Michael's site advertising the AdSense Videos sucks - tons of things are thrown into a single page, with lots of yellow colour in it, which personally I didn't like at all. But I suppose it works for other people. But if you are like me, don't let this hinder you from purchasing this material - you will quickly return the invested money and start earning significantly more each day.
The program contains 9 lessons, which are more like a recorded onscreen presentation, since you can't see Michael but only hear his commentary while he shows what he does on his computer. The lessons are:
If you are really in a hurry you could cover the whole program in about 2.5 hours. However it's advisable that after each lesson, you read the action list provided by Michael and improve your site following the instructions.
During the presentation Michael refers to a handful of online resources that he uses to improve his adsense revenue and which I've found very helpful. There are many similar resources out there and sometimes it takes a long time to figure out which resources are really useful and which ones are a waste of time. So having Michael suggest tools that he uses has saved me a lot of time.
Q. So what made you get started with AdSense?
A. I was looking for a way to monetize some of my websites. AdSense is such an easy thing to get started with the eye for it would be a great way to start earning more money without actually putting into much more effort. I think as soon as you see the first earnings coming into your account you get addicted to AdSense. I know is what happened to me and since then I've just spent time working out how to earn more and more each day.
Q. How much do you make with AdSense?
A. Some days I can earn close to $1000 and others it's less than that. But it all comes down to how much time and effort you devote to creating a quality site that people like visiting. AdSense is not what my business is based on by any means - but it is a great way to earn revenue almost on autopilot.
Q. What is the biggest mistake people making with AdSense?
A. Probably the biggest mistake people make is thinking the AdSense earnings are easy to achieve. It is very easy to get started but as I learned it takes a lot of effort to increase your earnings. I got really downhearted whenever I would log in to my account to see that I had only made a few dollars. And that's when I decided to spend months and months of my time learning everything I could about AdSense.
I basically buried myself away and devoured every single piece of AdSense information I could find. I ran thousands of AdSense tests and started to see a dramatic effect on my click through ratio and therefore on my earnings.
This is why I'd decided to record the videos - because I knew that it would help people who were in my position to also increase their earnings. I've read an absolute ton of AdSense e-book's but they take so long to go through and always seem to keep information back.
With AdSense Videos I knew that I had to tell the story exactly as it is and actually show people and lead them by the hand through the exact techniques that I use to generate large earnings from AdSense.
Q. In your videos you show people how to increase their AdSense earnings - can you give us a taster of this advice?
A. I don't want to give away my biggest secrets as you can understand! But some of the more basic things that you can do to increase your revenues include using ads that blend in rather than stand out from your content. Flat out the worst thing you can do with an AdSense ad is make it look like the standard Google ad. What you need to realise is that you will get more clicks if your ad actually appears part of your site rather than something that's just been dropped into the page.
Q. What would you recommend that someone do right now to increase their AdSense earnings?
A. I've created a totally free AdSense minicourse that people can go through to learn some of my techniques. It takes you through the four cornerstone principles that I've used to build up my AdSense empire. You can check it out, as well as all the AdSense Videos
