How To Get Approved Adsense Account With Blogger

I have shared many ad networks for publishers along with whole method of how to sign up, implementation of ads and boosting earnings but...


If you are a regular Seo posts reader then you must be knowing about an essential thing in search engine optimization and that is meta tags optimization for seo. Its very important for seo because search engine bots can read meta tags or any schema code and show your site information by interpreting information in your blog/site meta tags. But in the past years it has become clear that meta tags are not part of search engine optimization any more.


meta-tags-search-engines-optimization-seoHow To Add Meta Tags In Blogger Blog For Seo ?


What is "meta keywords" tag?

May be you are not a regular Seo reader so let me tell you what meta keyword tag is. Its shown below:

<meta name="keywords" content="101helper,seo, search engine optimization, search engine optimization, search engine ranking,blogging,blogger etc">

Above is the meta keyword tag and it contains keywords relevant to my blog content and the purpose or goal of this tag is to tell search engines is to show your blog when a particular keyword is searched.

Death of Meta keywords tag:

In the year 2009, Google officially announced that "Google doesn't use keywords meta tag". And the reason for this is mentioned on Google's official blog:

"In those days, keyword meta tags quickly became an area where someone could stuff often-irrelevant keywords without typical visitors ever seeing those keywords. Because the keywords meta tag was so often abused, many years ago Google began disregarding the keywords meta tag." 

So now Meta keywords tag has very little importance, almost none !




Can My Site Get Penalized For Using Meta Keywords?

I am sure after reading above part of the post you must have question of getting penalized for using meta keywords tag but the answer is "No", Google doesn't penalize your site for this because it is not even important for Google, they just don't use keywords but on the other hand Bing uses meta keywords and is very strict about it and will penalize any site which have a meta keywords tag containing keywords not relevant to that site.

Yahoo and Bing Still use meta keywords:

As stated earlier in this post that Bing uses keywords meta tag and is also very strict about it, let me mention here that even Yahoo doesn't uses meta keywords tag anymore but has not officially announced that.

Bing says in 2014:

"Today, it’s pretty clear the meta keyword tag is dead in terms of SEO value. Sure, it might have value for contextual ad systems or serve as a signal to ‘bots plying the web looking for topics to target, but as far as search goes, that tag flat lined years ago as a booster."

Source - Bing blogs

Bing has same reason for not using meta keywords tag that people have abused it to get traffic for certain keywords that wouldn't even be present on that page which contained the keywords tag.

What about other Meta tags, Can I use them ?

Ofcourse, you can use other meta tags but many of them has no value so you better check them before using them. I have also removed many useless meta tags and you can view it by viewing source code of this page and other pages. You can check Google meta tags page for which meta tags Google uses.

What if I still use "Meta Keywords" tag ?

Well there is no problem in using them but it has no value.

invalid-click-activity


Does it happened with you too? Did you also clicked your adsense ad accidently? if yes then you must be worried about penalty(ban) which brought you here! , I was also worried like you the first time I clicked my own ad accidentally. But don't worry you are not going to get banned by Google Adsense.  Google AdSense policy clearly mentions that as a publisher, you cannot click on your own ad otherwise you will get banned. In an article named, “Accidents Happens”, “Google mentions that you don’t need to contact them every time this happens. They will not ban you from clicking it accidentally but consistently repeating the same mistake will prove damaging.” As a Magento development company, you must know the following tricks to avoid those accidental clicks:
1. Invalid click contact form

If you sense more than usual click on your ads then the best thing to do is, notify Google AdSense about it through “Invalid click contact form”. In this way, AdSense will know you weren’t aware of the invalid click and are not falsely increasing your earnings.
2. Fast clicks are not real clicks

Advertisers do not value fast clicks. That’s the reason they get ignored being detected as accidental clicks. So, don’t get worried about them as they are not the actual clicks.

3. Edge clicks lack value

For touchscreens on mobile devices, the fat finger is a reality. On average the size of a finger pad is around 50pixels. Accidentally touching the edge of an ad while swiping through the mobile screens happens all the times. Intentional clicks have high conversational rates and more user intentionality. So, edged clicks lack value as compared to those that came from interior ones. Google recommends to protect edge clicks by increasing the size to 150 pixels.

4. Use line breaks 

For DIV, use one line break prior to DIV and one before initiating AdSense code and also one after the AdSense code. This will blend in well with both mobile and desktop within the on-page elements. If you cannot do it, hire Magento developer.

5. Who sees ads Plugin

This Plugin prevents the publishers from clicking on their own ads. “Who sees ads Plugin” also allows you to decide the type of visitors you want to have access to your ads.

6. Click Bomb-Protect Plugin

Click bombing begins when your CTR exceeds the limit. You can easily avoid click bombing by adding a code to code of your ad. This plugin is supported by all themes and is user-friendly. Most importantly, you can restore your Ip address after being banned by AdSense.

7. Install Google publisher tool

But remember, accidents cannot happen frequently, excessive own clicks may ban you from the program. At that time we suggest you to add an extension to the Google chrome, through which you will be aware of the URL of the blocked ad. Here is how you will do it; Search for Google publisher tool in chrome, click on “Add to Chrome” then select “Add extension”. Its icon will appear on your screen. Click on the icon and “Allow” it to access your account. Now sign in to your account and publisher tool will create an overlay on your on your own ads.

Conclusion

Accidentally clicking on your own ads is not a big deal but doing it constantly either intentionally or unintentionally can block your Ip address. There are a lot of ways of preventing it which are discussed in this article.

Google Adsense Ads Accidental Clicks, What To Do?

Google-adsense-guide-101helper

Getting the best out of Google AdSense is actually not a difficult step. Thanks to this platform, Google has created an opportunity for blog and website owners to be able to make some quick cash with their online platforms and presence on the online landscape.

However, while there are certain platforms that are benefiting immensely from the use of Google AdSense, there seems to be some that are just lagging behind.

If you like to increase the efficiency of your Google AdSense subscription, then these tips are definitely for you:

There are certain best practices when it comes to ad styles

When it comes to creating the styles of your ads, there are certain practices that are guaranteed to help increase your clicks.

For your ad units, make sure that the borders and background colors are the same as that of your page
Also, use colors that can already be found on your site. However, be careful not to match the orders and background where you end up placing the ads
For units of ads, make sure that the colors you use are those which will stand out and be in contrast with the background of your site. This means that if your blog has a dark background, you will be better served with light-colored ads.

Track the clicks that you get with AdSense

While you will definitely get a head start when you understand the best practices with ad placement and styles, it is possible that your strategy doesn't produce the best results.  If you are to get the best out of your AdSense experience, you will need to correctly understand the best fit for your unique audience.

With Google Analytics, you can track the performance of every ad unit and understand the impact that each is having on your earnings. As opposed to following some of the best practices that you see and not having results, it's better to be actionable and proactive towards your earnings.

Use a plugin to manage your ads

If you like to efficiently manage your ads, then an ad management plugin will be the best for you. With these, you will be able to place your ads easily and with speed. You can also set factors like ad rotations, expiry dates, and ad blocker messages.

Easy management of your ads, no issues whatsoever.

Ensure to choose the right keywords

A lot of the things about Google are keywords. This means that the secret to getting the best out of AdSense is to get the best keywords out there.

Take this simple analogy to understand the meaning of “keyword”:

For instance, if you are looking for a magneto developer and you type in “hire magento developer” on your Google search box, that word you type becomes the keyword that drives your search, and you will most likely see the link to the magento development company.

Keep things scanty

Nobody likes a blog or website that is loaded with ads. That's why most people use ad blockers. When your platform is congested with advertisements to the point that a visitor is redirected to another page every time they touch the page (this happens especially for mobile-optimized sites and touchscreen smartphones), then there is a high chance that these ads will negatively impact your website. To wit, make sure that the ads on your website are scanty.

Remember that when it comes to ads, it's not about the quantity, but the quality and relevance of the ads.

If you don't know why I want a huge email list then let me tell you that if a visitor visits your blog and you have his email, you can send him all your new posts and get him back to your blog so its like binding him with your site so you don't loose your old traffic and the new visitors also visit your blog. So its like multiplying traffic by keeping old visitors engaged and getting new visitors.

How to build huge email list with Sumo Welcome Mat:

Step 1: Go to sumo tools and login to your account, if you don't have one, make it by following this post.

Step 2:  Add New Site  if you are new to Sumo tools or  Manage  your excising site.

» Select Welcome Mat as email collector(Form type).

collect-emails-for-email-list

» Choose design from list.

email-subscribe-widget-blogger

» Choose visibility Mode:

smart-mode-sumo-tools

Smart Mode: In this mode sumo decides when your welcome mat should show. It chooses best time for your welcome mat and its really smart specially when you have multiple welcome mats it chooses best time and best visitor to show it to him.

Manual Mode: In this mode you decide when will welcome mat show. If you want to show your welcome mat always to every visitor then leave the default settings but if you want to show welcome mat to a visitor only once in an hour, minutes, days, months or even year then switch always show to desired option and enter the time in which you want welcome mat to show, as shown in below image:

sumo-website-tools-blogger-welcome-mat-tool

Switch on Toggle on to stop visitors from scrolling page when the welcome mat is shown.

You can also change display mode to Embedded or Parallax. In Embedded mode you have to place below piece of code where you want the welcome mat to slide down and show up.

<span class="sumome-welcomemat-anchor"></span>

In Parallax mode the welcome mat shows up as a parallax. To know what is parallax, set it and see it live.

So in this way you have control over your welcome mat, there are some advanced settings too by which you decide on which pages your welcome mat is going to show.

Step 6: Now you have Success option, leave it.

Step 7: Now connect your welcome mat to a Email service, so when it collects emails for you then send it to your Email service which you use to send emails to visitors.There are many good email services, choose one which you use and connect it to your welcome mat.

Step 8: Click on Publish button and its done!

connect-email-service-sumo-tools

If you are using feedburner then don't connect to any email service, all collected emails will be saved in your sumo account in subscribers section. You can copy each email and send it your latest post and add it to your feedburner list manually but your visitor will receive emails only when he approves your feedburner to send emails to him.

I personally use Mailchimp to send emails to my blog subscribers and it is a very good email service because its easy to use and provides me full data about every subscriber, whether he opens my emails, visit links or no. So I know which subscriber is active.

What else can you do with sumo to collect emails?

Sumo provides you great tools for free and you have multiple options to collect emails. E.g Popups, slide outs, Welcome mats, Sumo scrolling bar, Inline form and Cart casino(Pro users only). All you need to do is to select Goal as collect emails and choose the form type and follow instructions as show above.

I hope its a good post for you and you got help. If not please leave a comment below.

No codes changing: With auto ads, you get only one code and you need to place this code only once on a page, if you are using blogger, place this code only once in theme and every page will contain the code. Now sit back and Google will work for you and show right ad on right time at right place.

Where To Add Auto Ads Code?


According to Google Adsense team, you can place auto ads code in pages where you already have ad codes placed. You don't need to remove them, Auto ads will take into account all existing Google ads.

If you are using Vignette or Anchor ads then you don't need to place auto ads code in your mobile site because all of them have been migrated to Auto ads, so you don't need to change codes again.

If yes then you might have wished to remove this thing from your blog because sometime it is swiped next or back without intention and it is a negative thing for your user experience. Mostly it happens if your mobile site page e.g a post has a html table or it has a big image because of with content is bulging out of your main post body which causes the user to swipe next or back without intention and if it happens 2-3 times the visitor just leave and stop visiting your blog.

How To Remove Swipe "next" And "previous" From Blogger Mobile Site

Sitelinks are some links that are showing below site in search engines. Its not just in Google search results but in Bing, Yahoo and also in Yandex. There is no idea how to get sitelinks, even Google says that sitelinks are automatically generated links to help visitors reach important pages of your site. Also you have no control over which page you want in sitelinks and also there is no code which can do it. You might be thinking that if nothing is known about sitelinks, how am I going to get it for my site ? Well, the answer is simple you will get it as I got them !


What Are Google Search Result Sitelinks:

sitelinks-in-google-search-results

Above is the sceenshot of sitelinks of my blog. If you search "101helper" oon Google you will see the sitelinks live. These are featured links from my blog and are shown to visitors to help them reach deeper pages or help them to reach the content of interest on a site.

Note that sitelinks never remain the same they change time to time and we have no control over it. Google allowed webmasters to remove certain links from sitelinks but now this feature is gone from webmaster tools so you can't remove URLs from sitelinks even if these are not of visitor's interest.

Though, you can control it indirectly by blocking these pages from index using meta tag or robot.txt.


Why Sitelinks Are Important ?


1. Sitelinks Increase CTR(Click through rate):

If you search a site and it doesn't have sitelinks, you will just click on the main site URL because you have no other option but if you search a site and it has sitelinks, you may like to click on something from the sitelinks which will grab your interest. So it increases your pageviews plus CTR.

If your site doesn't have sitelinks yet then before using tips below go to your webmaster tools and click on search analytics, take a sceenshot and compare it later with your click-through-rate. You will see an increase in CTR and also traffic.


2. Sitelinks Increase Visitors Trust:

Sitelinks makes a site look professional and increases visitors trust in your site which results in more bookmarks and more visiting because they trust your site.


3. Sitelinks Shows Your Rank:

Sitelinks are shown only below these sites which have a good rank. Rank is improved when you have good content, good traffic and your site is more social. So your fans will see that your site has a good rank so it improves your reputation.


4. Sitelinks Shows Featured Content From Your Site:

If you have sitelinks below your site it may show featured links like link to best post of your site or links to certain category where your visitor can read many posts with same label so it is good for your site because visitors can visit these links directly before visiting your main site so it will increase your traffic.


Google Search Sitelinks Mobile And Desktop Site:

As we know that Google is working on mobile sites and improving user experience on mobile because people use smartphones more than computers to visit sites so Google is working more on mobile site rather than desktop. Google has enabled carousel schema for mobile sites and shows many websites(news sites mostly) posts in carousel which shows how importance mobile site experience is.

So if your blog has a separate template for desktop and separate template for mobile then you have to optimize both of them to show sitelinks in mobile and desktop.

Here is a sceenshot of how sitelinks appear in mobile devices.

How To Get Sitelinks In Google Search Results?

Here are some tips to get sitelinks below your site in search engines.

1. Make Content:

I got sitelinks below my site first time when my posts were above 50 and appeared only when I searched "101helper" on google.com not on google.com.pk or google.co.in so it means that sitelinks may take more posts to appear on country specific Google.


2. Submit Site To Webmaster Tools:

Its the 2nd most important thing to do after making content, every single post you publish should be on Google. How To Add Blogger Sitemap To Google Webmaster Tools

Its best to submit your blog to all search engines i.e bing and yandex also.

3. Markup Your Site Navigation:

Your blog menu or navigation should be markedup with schema, it means alot because after marking up site navigation with schema you are actually telling search engines that certain part of your site is navigation and later the menu items start appearing as sitelinks. How To Markup Site Navigation In Blogger For Seo


4. Customize Your Blog's Robots.txt:

Make sure that the robots.txt you are using is not blocking pages from crawling or not disturbing index status in any way. You can see your blog's robot.txt by visiting http://yourblog.blogspot.com/robots.txt. If you can see that these is no blocking then it good. Many bloggers disallow static pages(contact page, about page and sitemap page etc) in robots text which results in disappearance of these pages in search results. So if you have done this then even if you makeup your menu or navigation and your menu items include sitemap page, contact page etc, you will never see these pages in sitelinks and also it may take some more posts for sitelinks to appear because more content means sitelinks. If you have disallowed pages from appearing then only posts will appear as sitelinks.

5. Be More Social:

Share your posts and blog URLs as many time as you can, join facebook groups, Google groups and other sites where you can get your URLs shared, it will not only bring you some social traffic and followers but also it will improve your sites social impact and improve your search rank.


6. Choose A Unique Short Name For Blog :

By choosing a short and unique name for your blog, your visitors don't only remember your site but also use it in search and when there are more searches, you start getting sitelinks and popularity. Like for example my blog's name is 101Helper, Do your remember it easily ? if you do then you will surely search it on Google and you will see that my blog has sitelinks and I get many visitors daily which use "101Helper" as keyword to reach my blog.


7. Interlink Your Content:

Make a habit to interlink your older content with newer, show useful links of other posts in your new posts. It will increase your pageviews also because interlinking is good for multiplying traffic.

Tips To Get Sitelinks In Google Search Results - Blogger



There are certain things about seo and blogging that only professional bloggers and webmasters know and are not told to everyone and if told everybody don't understand it. One of these things is marking up site navigation with schema which helps search engines know what is site navigation element and it is helpful to get sitelinks below site in google search results.

Its a little bit complicated to markup site navigation with schema but I will show you step by step and after final step we will verify if we correctly marked up site navigation or not. Popular websites and blogs are using this method to tell Google what is in menu and hence in the sitelinks these menu is shown.

Although it is not guaranteed that you will get sitelinks below your site in search results but it will markup your navigation and whenever you will get sitelinks, your menu items will be included in sitelinks. I am not guaranteeing because according to Google sitelinks are automatically generated links below websites to help visitors reach what they are looking for. It is also unknown what is the criteria for showing specific items in sitelinks but marking up site navigation has impact on it as I experienced !

So lets start marking up site navigation with schema for search engines.

Step 1: Go to your blog theme or layout where your menu code is.

Step 2: Add below line inside your menu's <div> or <nav> or <ul>:

itemscope='itemscope' itemtype='http://schema.org/SiteNavigationElement' role='navigation'


like this:

<nav class='main-nav' itemscope='itemscope' itemtype='http://schema.org/SiteNavigationElement' role='navigation'>

Step 3: Add  itemprop='url'  to your menu's every item "link attribute" like this:

<li><a href='https://101helper.blogspot.com'  itemprop='url' >Home</a></li>


Step 4: Now add  itemprop='name'  to your menu item names, you can't add it directly so use <span> attribute and add  itemprop='name'  as I did for my menu, look it below:

<li><a href='https://101helper.blogspot.com/search/label/Blogger%20menus'  itemprop='url' ><span   itemprop='name'  >Blogger menus</span></a></li>


Step 5: Do it for all your menu items one by one.

Note: If your menu items do not have <li> attribute, it doesn't matter but you need to markup all the <a> and <span> attributes.

Step 6: After you are done go to Google Structured Data Testing Tool.

Step 7: Put your blog URL and  RUN TEST .

Step 8: Look for SiteNavigationElementif you found it and there is no errors or warnings then its cool and you did it correctly, Congratulations !

How To Markup Site Navigation In Blogger For Seo

My blog reader asked me to write a post about auto backlinks building and its cons and pros so I decided to tell you about auto backlinks building and other backlinks that violate Google's guidelines for webmasters so you can avoid these backlinks generating methods and save your blog from Google penalties.

Before telling you about types of backlinks that violate Google's guidelines, let me tell you first what is autobacklinking. Auto backlinking is a way to get free backlinks without working hard, though it is easy way and works for sometime but if you get penalized then all your work go in vain.

There are many software that do it all you need is to put your link and make backlinks, some online tools are also available for this work. But I don't recommend it because these backlinks are not from sites which are similar to your site topic and these backlinks doesn't have value. Also there is a high risk of penalty.

So auto backlink generating methods are not successful and you should avoid them, here are some more backlink generating methods that should also be avoided. I recommend you to create backlinks on big websites that allow "dofollow" backlinks like Pinterest. Here is a list of dofollow backlinks websites and directories List Of "Dofollow" Websites And Directories.

To check if you are penalized by Google, check your blog or site stats from the day you started creating backlinks and if you have a decreased organic traffic(traffic from search engines) it means your site is penalized. Other ways to check is to search your indexed URL's on Google by using this link site:yoursitelink.com if you can see your site indexed then it means your site is not penalized and you are still on Google.

Still other ways to find if you are penalized you can search for online tools.

Types Of backlinks That Violate Google Webmaster Guidelines:

1. Paid Backlinks:

seo-paid-links-blogger-penalty-google

Ofcourse if you are buying backlinks to improve your search rank you are doing black hat seo and its against Google's guidelines. So avoid it.

2. Backlinks Exchange:

link-exchange-blogger-backlinks

Some people exchange backlinks to help each other improve site rank and it works fine unless they start link exchanging with more and more sites and when they do it, their improved rank is noticed by Google and Google Penalize them because it is a black hat seo technique to improve rank, also most of the link exchangers do not have good engaging content so penalty becomes must as it is proved that without having good content how can a site get so many backlinks.

3. Irrelevant Backlinks:

irrelevant-backlinks-blogger-google-penalty

Irrelevant backlinks are those links which are from sites which are not similar to your site for example if you have a blog about PC games or fashion and you have backlinks from sports or movie blog then these backlinks are considered to be irrelevant and it happens when you are using auto backlinks generator or you are exchanging links.

4. Links From Sites with broken links:


broken-links-to-backlinks-blogger

If you have backlinks from sites or blogs which have many broken links then these are bad for seo. Broken links are not even good for that site then how can these sites improve your rank which have so many broken links ?

5. Automatically Generated backlinks:

autobacklink-generator-blogger

If you search on Google or on Fiverr or any other freelancing site or even on Facebook groups you will find guys which offers you to buy their package and get 10K to 15K backlinks for just $5 or less or more but never accept such offers. It sounds so good to have 10K or 15K backlinks overnight but it will penalize your site within days or weeks so all your work will be wasted. All these backlinks are generated by bots and software and are usually on blanks pages or high ranked website or in forums or in comments. Avoid Automatically generated backlinks if you don't want your website to be penalized.




6. Backlinks From Other Language Websites:

backlinks-from-foreign-language-sites

It does not have a major role because my blog(101Helper) also have backlinks from websites with other languages e.g Hindi, Russian, Spanish etc but all these websites are similar to my blog so it is not considered a bad seo technique but if you have backlinks from websites with other languages and also it is irrelevant then its not good and you can get penalized.

7. Generating Backlinks With Coding:

backlinks-hacks-blogger-google-penalty

If you are generating your blog or site link on other websites by using CSS or Javascript or other programming language and hiding them then its against Google's guidelines, If your links comes with plugins and is for copyright reason then its fine but if you are hiding them and the person doesn't know that certain code is making links on his site then it will become the reason for your site to get penalized. So avoid it!

8. Backlinks From Sites With Duplicate Content:

google-panda-duplicate-content-300x252

If you have backlinks on websites with same and duplicate content then it will affect your rank and you can get penalized so avoid this backlink technique.

9. Low Quality Guest Posting/Blogging:

low-quality-content-backlinks

Ofcourse guest blogging is best way to get quality backlinks and this technique will never die but low quality guest posting which is just to get backlinks is not good for seo.

There are many other ways to get backlinks but all these are black hat seo techniques which should be avoided otherwise your website will be destroyed.
How To know If My Blog Is Penalized By Google ?

If you see a major drop in organic traffic from Google then its a symptom that you are penalized by Google and to confirm it you can use online Google penalty checker and also you can check it manually by searching your site on Google using this link: site:yoursite.blogspot.com other way to confirm it is to look at your site index stats in Google webmaster tools.

How To Recover If My Blog Is Penalized By Google ?

Well, if you are penalized by Google for certain activities, I recommend you to reverse everything you did. Its like undoing all the bad seo activities. If you have generated low quality backlinks or if you have used a software for autobacklinking then use online backlinks remover or manually remove it.

In my opinion best way to get quality and safe backlinks is quality guest blogging and commenting manually on forums and blog and dofollow social networks like Pinterest, Linkedin etc.
