Advertising Realities

Advertising on your blog takes only a few minutes to setup, a few more to optimized placement, but then those ads are left alone without ever giving it much more thought.

Take the day to think strategically about the design and how effective the placements of your ads are.

  • What could you do differently?
  • If you used a different ad size, would it make them perform better?
  • Could tweaking the colors have an impact on your audience?
  • How about placing the ad in a different spot?

Just pick one of those suggestions to work on and watch what happens to your ads performance once you have. I've heard of bloggers increasing (or even decreasing) the ad unit size of their AdSense ads and would see a jump in the CTR ( ... Continue Reading

Blogging Schedule

More often than not, I have a blog post plan already set in place when I choose what 30-day challenge to complete in any given month. I know what subject I'm covering (ie.

Day 5: About Me Page Audit

Forum Example

A lot of you might be scratching your head at this new-fangled word: Forum. Just think of a forum as an "online discussion site" where people essentially gather to talk about a specific topics, such as "General Discussion" or "Political Debate" or "Which Cartoon Character Has The Best Tits?"
