Reasons why your Google AdSense earns low


New Google publishers spend time to get approved for a Google AdSense account these days due to the tight rules ,methods and conditions that Google binds them with. But who said that Google AdSense is a Get Rich Quick Company ?
Why Google AdSense earns low

If you published something only to get paid for, then you must publish something that is (Unique, Needed, Easy to transfer to clients), if you posses such product then you need to create an organization to sell your product,because AdSense will not pay you for this product. But if you are publishing your experience about using some product with the above qualities, then you will get paid if you use Google AdSense.

When you get paid for what you publish about what you know is not enough, you feel like you deserve more especially when what you know is as good as a product quality (Unique, Needed, Easy to move) for example [Knowledge]. Let see why possibly you earn low from Google AdSense :

#1 ) You are a new blogger / publisher.

When was the last time you post something in your blog ?
- Don't expect a big check from Google AdSense when your blog is not up-to-date, The word spreads so fast over the internet. What do you think is unique and needed, after an hour, it will be an old news, except; of course when you are the source of the knowledge as if you invented or discovered something.

#2 ) You don't have much visitors.

When was the last time you share your blog in social networks or relevant forums ?
- When you publish something about [ I.e: Programming ] that is unique and needed, but people who seek suck knowledge don't know you're exist. Facebook is one way to start successfully with spreading your words, knowledge seekers [ Programmers ] are there enough to make traffic for your blog, only if you have what they need. AdSense won't work for you when you get something like 200 hundreds page visits per day, but as long as you are a new blogger, please forget about AdSense now, and start making traffic for your blog/site first.

#3 ) AdSense ADS placements on your blog are not clickables.

Have you ever thought about the colors matching of your ADS and your blog/site ?
- A lot of successful blogs/sites that get more than 3000 page views per day, don't get as much clicks as they expect in order to earn much, neither because of ADS don't appear properly or the colors are uncomfortable to the eyes. Always find relations between the color of your ADS and the color of your blog/site's background, make the visitor thinks that it is a part of you content. When you post about [ Technology Android ] a lot, then your ADS 90% will be about Android relevant products, so that will be easy to make visitors click on them when you match both your site and ADS colors and blog's content.

#4 ) Write for people who click.

When you write something about Blogging or AdSense, that means you are writing for people like you, people who know ADS when they see it.
- Write for everyone, don't mind my words, but I want you to know that writing for bloggers and publishers will cause a low cost clicks. But it is up to you to decide.

#5 ) Write about something specific.

When your blog/site talks about ( Technology ), please don't talk about religion or post something about your personal life.
- ADS appear on your website/Blog due to your content categories. Why would people click on a religious AD while they read about (Technology). Make your Blog/site have an exclusive possession of specific category.

#6 ) You are desperate to earn by using all Ad networks.

New bloggers are allowed to do so, but if you wanna start the right way, let me tell you that.
- More content + Less Ad Networks = High Cost Per Click

#7 ) The location of your visitors.

Visitors from countries (I.e. Egypt or India) see your Ad but from (Indian or Egyptian) advertisers.
- When someone from Egypt visits your Blog/Site (Any country with low cost advertisers), And due to the fact that we all write blogs that are more of local nature, Say for example if we write blogs about Egyptian celebrities, entertainment, politics or places, these will mostly interest Egyptians readers. This is the only reason that I could figure out for Egypt and India advertisers that pay low cost per click on their Ads. The language you use when writing something locally defines 90% of your visitors, no matter what you are writing about (Egypt, India) News, please make it in English.

#8 ) Find the pages that have low CPC

Go back to your blog/site and use Google Analytic free tool in order to determine which pages have low CPC.
- When you find that there are some pages that don't pay you anything from AdSense or even have low CPC, you have some options:
1) Delete AdSense codes from these pages.
2) Improve AdSense  format, colors or location
3) Improve your page's content to get more traffic if you already done the previous option.

#9 ) Stop irrelevant Ads from appearing in your Blog/Site.

Stop Irrelevant AdSense ADS
Go If you are writing about software and technology, why in the world do I see Ads about religion or beauty salons ?
- People have traffic and very nice contents but these factors not making them earn money from Google AdSense codes within their beautiful work, Why?
The answer is simply because their visitors are not interested in the Ads that their pages are showing to these visitors, why would someone clicks an Ad about religion while he is reading about technology ?
Stop irrelevant Google AdSense Ad units from appearing in your blog/website is a stone key to get many clicks and earn a lot.

#10 ) You are not using Google AdWords Keyword tool.

Use Google AdWords Keyword Tool
If you are talking about Gas, Electricity, Android, Insurance or Loans, then you need to know how many do search for you and are willing to click Ads relevant to what they are looking for .
- What if you are already talking about a hot topic like "E.g. Saving accounts" and you don't know what keywords are needed for your page to get a high CPC Ads on your page so you can earn more money from clicks, you need to use Google AdWords Keyword Tool to provide you with the relevant keywords that pay high CPC to include in your page. Just Search Google for (AdWords Keyword Tool) and start using it.
It is so easy to use it :
1) open the Keyword tool page while you are signed in with your Google Account.
2) From above, drop down menu [Tools and Analysis] choose [Keyword Tool].
Using Google AdWords Keyword Tool
Use Google AdWords Keyword Tool
 3) Enter your keyword (I.E. Auto Loans) that you are writing about in your blog, choose the country and language and you can choose from advanced, the CPC > i.e 50 and hit search.
4) You will see results of this keyword, notice the CPC column, if this is enough for you then it is OK, if not then target a higher CPC and use the Keyword that pay much CPC in your blog which of course is relevant to your content 

#11 ) Your traffic is derived from one place only

Advertiser uses Google AdSense to promote his product, Google AdSense picks you up to place ADS on your blog to promote this product. If the advertiser wants to promote via Facebook only, then he won't be using Google AdSense.
- If all of your visitors are derived from one place I.e Facebook.com, then there is no real profits for advertisers from promoting their products on your blog/website, because only Facebook.com users will see these products, then your CPC will cost less than 0.05$ per click.
But if you are getting traffic from search engines or some social networks I.e Google+, Delicious, Twitter, Stumble upon and Facebook, then you are promoting an idea, and then you can expect a fair CPC.
My advice : share widely, don't spam and be interactive with others.
