The reason why I haven't posted for a while

Posted On / Leave a Comment
Its been a while since my last post and to be honest I really miss blogging. The reason why I didn't blog for months is because my mother just passed away last May, and I really have a hard time adjusting to the life now that she is gone.

This past month has been very stressful to me, and when I am stressed, ideas don't come out of my head and  it leads me writing about... nothing. Sadness, depression, and a sudden loss of a family member has a big impact on myself. Because of what happened I lost interest on just about anything including blogging.

The reason why I haven't posted for a whileI do hope some of my readers would understand why that I haven't been replying to your comments and e mails, and will do my best to be an active blogger once again.

Because of this tragic event I have learned that health is indeed wealth, and its better to celebrate life than death, enjoy life while it lasts and love the people that loves you back.

I am still a bit depressed because of many financial problems she left us and the obligations that I have to shoulder although it is not really my obligation, but I know there is an end to this and when that day comes, a new me will emerge, more mature, more persistent and more dedicated for success.

How to Protect Your Adsense Account from Click Bombers

Posted On / 1 comment

How to Protect Your Adsense Account from Click BombersAs I was browsing some adsense tips on the net, an article about "how his adsense account get banned" caught my attention. I read his story and asked if he honestly do some illegal activities on his adsense account and he said "no", and I believe him because he blogs about SEO. If you are blogging for that niche, I am pretty sure you are aware of Google Adsense policy. He said that his click has dramatically increased more than a 100% in the past days, and its because of click bombers, someone was probably sabotaging his adsense account.

What is click bombing?

Click bombing is simply having your adsense account too much click, it could double or triple depending on the malicious user who wants to sabotage your account. These people will usually click on the same ads for more than 10 times in just a minute. If you have a low traffic blog, getting your adsense account banned is easy for these click bombers.

How Google detect invalid clicks

This could happen to anyone, so we must pay attention to our adsense accounts and check for malicious activities or having too much click. To some, they suspect rivals or competitors are the one doing this kind of malicious activities. They want you to go down. As a website grow bigger and so is the rise of haters, spammers, and of course the terrorists of Google Adsense "the click bombers".

The truth is, I fear on this and I don't want it to happen to me or to you. But there are preventive measures to protect your adsense account from being sabotaged.

What to do if I suspect Click bombing?

If you happen to suspect someone is trying to do some click bombing the first thing you should do is contact Google immediately and fill up the invalid contact form. This will help them recognize your account is being maliciously being sabotaged and letting them know that you do not know where the illegal clicks came from.

Besides letting Google know, there are also other ways to prevent click bombing. Here are some:
  • Google Analytics. This is a very important tool for webmasters because you can trace where your visitors came from and what activity they are doing. Use this tool to find IP address of illegal clickers and ban them immediately.
  • Don't apply Adsense for low traffic blogs. This is one of the best way to avoid click bombers. High traffic sites usually makes a lot of money from adsense, that is why click bombers will not really affect their account because they are used to having tons of clicks. If your blog has low traffic yet it has tons of clicks it could easily get banned.
  • Use plugins for wordpress. One of the biggest advantage of word press is having tons of useful  plugins and one of them is who sees ads plugin, use it to prevent someone from accessing your site. There maybe new and more updated version of this plugin, just search I am sure you can find one.
  • Be careful with 3rd party traffic. I have been using 3rd party traffic generation site before and it help a bit wit improving my traffic. But beware, malicious clickers sometimes lurks on these sites. 
  • Don't tell anyone about your ads. I have read a story about a blogger who got banned because his sister wanted to help him make money from adsense, unaware his sister was actually "click bombing" and because of that he lost his account. It may be a sweet thing someone wanted and trying to help you make money but believe me, they could do much worse. The moral lesson here, don't tell anyone about your ads.

My Final thoughts

Despite measures to prevent this I still fear that one day Google might email me something about my Adsense account getting banned. If that happens I am quite sure click bombers are behind it. 

Getting your adsense accounts banned could happen to anyone, that is why you need to fully understand Google's policies on adsense. And the most important thing is always be aware of your account and keep track of it so that if there is something wrong you can immediately fix it.

How to approve your adsense account

Adsense is still my favorite ways to make money online, but its also scary that one day you could loose all your earnings all of a sudden. That is why you should search for adsense alternatives, they may not pay you as big but it could still help you make money blogging.

How to Put Adsense in the Middle of Post for Blogger

How to Put Adsense in the Middle of Post for Blogger
Experimenting and analyzing where to put your Adsense ads is necessary for you to know where your visitors click on the ads. So today I will share another adsense placement tips. This time we will put your ads on where most readers focuses their eyes, in the middle of your post.

With this ad placement it could increase your Adsense earnings and make more money blogging. If you are having a low CTR on adsense, I suggest you try putting ads in the middle of your blogger post.

The instructions are easy, just follow the simple steps below:

1. Go to Blogger account

2. Template > edit HTML and open template editor

3. Look for the <data:post.body/> tag

Note: Some blogs who uses the "automatic read more" function could have more than two of these, I suggest you try them each and always back up your template before tweaking any template.

4. After looking for that tag, replace it with the code below.

<div expr:id='&quot;aim1&quot; + data:post.id'/>
<div style='clear:both; margin:10px 0'>

YOUR ADSENSE CODE HERE

</div>
<div expr:id='&quot;aim2&quot; + data:post.id'>
<data:post.body/>
</div>
<script type='text/javascript'>
var obj0=document.getElementById(&quot;aim1<data:post.id/>&quot;);var obj1=document.getElementById(&quot;aim2<data:post.id/>&quot;);var s=obj1.innerHTML;var t=s.substr(0,s.length/2);var r=t.lastIndexOf(&quot;&quot;);if(r&gt;0){obj0.innerHTML=s.substr(0,r);obj1.innerHTML=s.substr(r+1)}
</script>
5.  Go to your adsense account and create your desired ad size. After customizing it parse the html using this HTML parser.

6. Replace YOUR ADSENSE CODE HERE with your parsed HTML code.

7. Save template.

You are DONE!
