I was invited to attend a Google AdWords webinar on 13 Nov’14. It’s aimed to simplify and show you basic steps on how to create an effective Google AdWords account. There are few essentials you need to design a solid foundation for marketing campaign, and help you to understand what you are getting out of the money that you put in.
One of the 301 participants.
A question posted in the interactive chat box.
The topics covered were as below:
1. Identifying different advertising goals to meet your business needs
Google has been introducing Western Union Quick Cash payments for Malaysian Google Ads publishers since September 2007. This is great news for us as we no need to rely too much on check payment which mostly will take longer time to process. This mean you no need to wait for 10 days for Adsense check arrives and another 30 days for the Adsense check to clear in the local Malaysia bank.
How to Withdraw Adsense Earning via CIMB Bank Western Union?
On each end of the month, you will be given MTCN (Money Transfer Control Number) from Western Union. It is a 10 digit number that you need to write down this MTCN in the form. You can get this by logging in your Google Adsense account.
Do you think can we use Google AdSense and InfoLinks on the same page? Will it against Google terms of service? As I known, InfoLinks provide in-text advertisement which you may see that some terms in the text are hyperlinked to the advertiser’s website.
Based on the Google terms of service, it is possible to place your Google ads with other ads on the same page with the condition that your non-Google ads formatting or colors are different Google ads. In the other words, you need to make sure that it should always be clear to the user that the ads are served by different advertising networks.
So, you now can monetize your website with in text ads together with Google AdSense ads with no worries. Google does not have anything against in-text ads. The in text ads that I recommended to use is Infolinks since it is widely used by many publishers to create a stream of revenue to supplement Adsense.
Here’s an example how the Infolinks shows on my site:
We have heard a lot of bloggers complaint about Google Adsense accounts getting banned. Most of the reason observed in most of these cases is click fraud. Do you know what is click fraud? It is the act of clicking on ads for the purpose of earning income from the advertisers. Based on the Google Adsense terms of service and policies, if the publishers perform click fraud then it will result in their accounts being banned. Thus, please don’t try to play this fool game.
Most of the people have their same thinking that forming a click fraud community to help each other to click their ads is healthy activities since Google may not know the person perform self-clicking as the IP address always different. This is stupid action entirely. Google can do more than what you expected!!!
How Google Detect The Invalid Click?
Advertlets is founded by Josh Lim & Associates.
As everybody known, making money with Advertlets is no longer a secret. Nowadays, there are many new and existing bloggers quite actively discussing about this local advertising program in our Malaysia’s popular forum – Lowyat.net. Even though there is a lot of complaints about Advertlets but at least, it does pay me the money in the end. See the proof below:
But, do you know how long can I get the payment? See the date I cashed out the advertising earning below:
