10 Do's And Dont's in Blogging | Every Intending Blogger Must Read

As with other professions there are certain rules and regulations otherwise called do's and dont's in the blogosphere. Since blogging is a game of content creation and creativity most bloggers end up violating these rules; therefore putting themselves in a tough situation.
Like I've already stated blogging is a game of content creation so many bloggers commit attrocities that get them into a mess with Google and other search engines and as a whole their blogging career. In this post I've listed and explained what is regarded as good practices in blogging and what is regarded as bad practices.

The Big Do's and Dont's in Blogging
1. Avoid Copying another blogs content; this is a public warning that has been sounded as an alarm over and over again by Google and other premium blogging tips blogs but yet most bloggers either out of laziness or ignorance still fall victim of this particular warning; so if you aspiring to be a blogger or already a blogger make sure you stay away from copy paste because it's very dangerous and can damage your blogs future both In ranking on search engines and monetisation.
2. Write Long, Quality Contents: this is a common problem most bloggers face; some bloggers find it difficult to compose what we call quality content i.e. an article that has 600-2000 words. But it's a necessity if you want visitors to enjoy your blog and if you want your blog to be SEO friendly. If you doubt this however, type in a keyword on Google and check the websites that rank first position or second position you'll see that the articles are usually lengthy... Yes that is what Google regards as quality content.
3. Publish Content Regularly: Research has shown that blogs that do well on search engine or that Google prefers are blogs that are frequently updated with fresh intriguing content. The best thing is also that visitors also love blogs that are frequently updated, so to make a good brand, publish regularly on your blog and when I mean regularly, I'm not saying go to Google and pick up another blogs content and upload to yours just to keep updating regularly instead make out time for your blog and write a lengthy, quality and neat post devoid of spelling errors, grammatical blunders etc. While doing this however, don't forget that quality surpasses quantity.
4. Don't focus on your blog design: yes, I must confess that this is where I fall short seriously, I care much about my blog design and that I have observed has made me waste alot of time on irrelevant things.. I think since I started blogging I've changed my theme close to 60times; I'm not exaggerating it's the truth and it's terrible I must say... That is why I'm advising any body who wants to blog to forget blog design and focus on writing good, quality and lengthy content that will be of use to visitors.
5. Don't Blog for passion alone, Blog for 💰 Money: yes in most blogs they keep saying you've to blog for passion, but I disagree with that though not fully because the reason why I joined blogging was because I loved the feeling of been called a website owner and been able to get viewers and been the boss😅 but as I kept progressing I decided to venture into blogging for money and I'm happy and moving well towards that direction. So I'll advice any intending blogger reading this post not to blog because of the sake of blogging alone but don't have money at the back of your mind when starting a blog because blogging is not a rich quick scheme, money comes gradually but I believe what motivates people to be better is the reward behind the act... So while blogging also think of money because money believe it or not is the fuel that keeps every activity going in this world we are in.
6. Don't focus on search engine traffic alone: most bloggers will tell you to do keyword research, do search engine that, d search engine this but deep down they know that's not all blogging is about. I'm not saying it's not good to do SEO but do it secondarily, if you have money boost your social media presence because moreover some top blogs only focus on social traffic and they are making it big more than those focusing on search engine traffic ... Check for example Yabaleftonline ; the blog focuses on social traffic and it's a top blog in Nigeria when it comes to entertainment, so while blogging make sure you strengthen your social traffic whilst optimising your blog for search engines.. so that you won't lose out.
7. Choose a Good Niche: many bloggers make mistakes of niche selection when creating blogs and in the long run that makes them feel blogging is an impossible game... So if you are an intending blogger make sure you select niches that are fit for your country, don't select a niche that people don't search regularly or people aren't interested in... That's the life of a blog, if you select a bad niche you might never be able to stand until you quit ... In Nigeria for example the trending niche is entertainment, if you want to blog it is advisable that you go for what visitors want to read or are interested in, don't go for a niche people aren't interested in because it's not people from another country tht will visit your blog it's most likely your country people.
8. Don't scam your Visitors: this is another area bloggers fail woefully; most bloggers scam their visitors thinking they'll hit and run not knowing the aftermath of such act... Even if your blog was accepted by opera news and you keep posting fake things to draw visitors in the long run you'll post something that is genuine and no body will care to visit.. your blog reputation will be destroyed and you end up quiting, so to avoid these make sure what you post on your blog has been tested and confirmed to be working or true if a news blog. Blog with passion, take your visitors as yourself and check how you'll feel if it were you.
9. Don't backlink with a low quality website or Blog: backlinks should be quality and not quantity I've discovered that, so if you want to build backlinks do that with a high profile website by guest posting or creating profile backlinks of forums like Nairaland. Don't go to every website and drop comments with the aim of getting backlinks... Some are spammy and will do little or nothing to your site.
10. Blog for money but not because of money; yes! This is confusing but it's true, don't blog because of the money you'll get instead blog for the money you are looking forward to getting. There is a difference and it's clear...

Stick to the above and be a successful blogger, though I'm not yet successful but I'm on the road to being very successful in blogging and I think you should too.

Requirements For Google Adsense Approval: Practices You Must Know

Some people are enjoying Google Adsense while some are still running here and there looking or Google Adsense alternatives, which in the long run cant serve or pay as much as Google Adsense. As the saying goes; If its not Google Adsense it cant be as good as Adsense. Some Bloggers are unable to get adsense not because they don't have quality content or because they scrape contents like other Bloggers would say, but its because they are simply uninformed as to the requirements of Google Adsense or simply what Google Adsense Requires from Publishers before they are even considered for Approval.

In this post, I am going to state the requirements for Google Adsense Approval, just keep reading this article keenly to get the information you want;

Minimum Requirements for Google Adsense Approval

Due to my experience so far with Google Adsense I have listed down some major requirements for Google Adsense approval;
  • Valid Email Address
  • You Should have a Website/Blog or an Application
  • Your Website or Blog must be Active
  • Your Website/Blog Must be atleast 6months old
  • Website must have a valid URL
  • Your website must have quality content.
  • The language on your blog must be a supported language for Adsense
  • Page speed
  • Required Pages

Valid Email Address: This is the first requirement you need if you must be a google AdSense publisher as you have to apply with an email address, a valid one at that. All feedbacks from Google will go straight to your email inbox and also payment information will still be forwarded to the mail. Your email address on Google Adsense is your Identity and as such the absence would automatically mean no Adsense account for you.

You should have a Website or Application: This is a compulsory requirement as Adsense is just an advertising network that displays ads on websites and Applications. So before you start thinking of having google adsense you must have a website/blog or an Application which you plan to monetise with the adsense. If you dont have a website or Application you have no business with ad networks let alone Google Adsense.


Your Website/Blog Must Be Active: Before approval into Google Adsense network your webiste must be an active website with updated and fresh content. With the absence of this, getting approval into adsense program would be a difficult task as Google Adsense Review specialists checks the last time your website was updated before approving your application. This is done because of Google Adsense policy of displaying ads on websites that add value to users and a website with outdated or irregularly update content cant added the required value to users or visitors.

Your Website Must be Atleast 6 Months Old: this is not always true especially for a country like ours, you can get Adsense approval with a day old domain name or url as google placed this particular restriction for bloggers in countries such as India etc. So this is a requirement for Adsense but not in the case of Nigerian Bloggers.

Your Website Must Have a Valid URL: The website you intend to display adsense ads on must have a valid URL, either your self hosted domain name or a hosted account from google which is .blogspot.com. any other url apart from the aforementioned wont be accepted into the Google Adsense community. The url of your website must also be accessible as just being a URL doesn't qualify it to be approved by Google. The url must also be accessible by users for you to get Adsense approval as its a must have requirement in Adsense.


Your Website must have Quality Content: Quality content has been defined severally by diffrent bloggers, but the general definition of quality content on website is a content that is lengthy, meaningful and informative. So to get Adsense approval you must have a website that hosts quality content not just any rubbish content. This is one of the highest criteria to be met before Google Adsense Review specialist recommend your website for approval.


The Language on Your Website or App must be Adsense Supported: All languages on your website must be English or any other supported languages on google Adsense to avoid being disapproved.

Page Speed: Your website cant be approved if its loading speed is like that of a snail because before you are approved your site needs to be optimized and its load speed should be very ok. Not just for google adsense specialists but for your potential users. This is a requirement you must meet to have google adsense ads on your webiste.

Necessary Pages: There are certain pages that you as publisher needs to add to your website to enable  you get adsense approval. these pages is a must add if you care for adsense approval; These pages are:


Disclaimer page, Privacy Policy, Contact page, About us page. These are the main pages your website must have to be approved on Google adsense as they make your website look more professional and authoritative.


That all for the minimum requirements for Google Adsense Approval, Enjoy and don't forget to drop a comment.

How to Switch On Bloggers New Update | Wonderful Features Awaits
Blogger owned by Google is a content management system that was launched in 1999 by pyra labs but was purchased by Google in 2003 and ever since Google has been managing the Blogger/Blogspot platform. 

The only bad thing about Blogger is that google hasn't really focused on improving the service nor ending it because of reasons known to them. It was in 2017 or so that google introduced free SSL certificates to blogs hosted on blogger but running with custom domain, this is the only update that has been considered as huge to Blogger platform.
But recently Google updated the blogger platform by improving two major areas;


1. The Comment Section
2. The stats section 



Also Read: All  You Need to Know About Google AdSense Approval Algorithm




The Stats Section; Google updated the stats section making it more detailed using diagrammatic illustrations; so you can now see the full traffic report of posts individually with pictorial illustrations and the views they've gotten for the past 7days. This is the best thing so far.


Below is an image of the old stats section
Below is an image of the new stats section
The difference is clear, Google has remembered the Blogger platform in a big way.


The Admin Comment Moderation area: this is another major feature that was improved by Google. The button to mark comment as spam has been improved, the UI as a whole was greatly touched by Google. Bloggers using the Blogger/Blogspot platform can now say confidently that google isn't ending the Blogger platform anytime soon because of the recent updates. Though google hasn't announced officially that there was an update, but it can bee seen easily by using the url draft.blogger.com. when you login to your account using the url above you'll see Try the New Blogger Button Below the help button... See image below


Without clicking or accessing your Blogger dashboard through the above link you'll be unable to try out the new blogger update. Though from my observation in recent times using chrome to access blogger.com redirects me to draft.blogger.com and automatically the new updated and refined Blogger.
This new Blogger update though not so remarkable is worth it as it has shown and reassured some bloggers that Blogspot/Blogger platform isn't going anything soon. And also created a huge opportunity for Bloggers to compete with the self proclaimed best CMS WordPress.

Blogger update didn't include SEO or more increase in features. But Blogger SEO is good enough as long as you can write well and do necessary things like internal linking, Backlink Gain, Keywords research and submitting website to search engines like Google, Bing, Yandex etc. 

The only bad thing or what I dislike about the new Blogger update is the removal of search keywords in the new new stats section.

Poor AdSense Earnings? See How I Increased My AdSense CPC Rate


Most Bloggers think getting google AdSense is the end of the struggle, not aware that the struggle jut began. It is only when they get in that they discover google AdSense isn't what they've always believed it to be i.e. in terms of earnings because if your blog is not up to a certain standard you will end up getting close to nothing CPC (cost per click) I believe a google AdSense user won't ask me what I mean by CPC because that's the model google AdSense works with to reward publishers. Now the problem is after getting AdSense approval you are faced with a more difficult task which is low CPC or close to nothing CPC. This particular struggle was what I was facing and sometimes I get lots of click and yet nothing to show for it in terms of revenue. Imagine getting a CPC of 0.02 or 0.01 how many clicks are you expected to get to be able to get even up to $1 per day, it's terrible, and bloggers facing this issue are really in a messy soup.

In this post, I am going to give my suggestions as to why you are getting poor CPC and how to solve the problem therefore increasing your CPC to useful level.

How to Increase Google AdSense CPC rate

~~ Like I stated earlier this post is just my suggestion, and as such you can still look for more suggestions online but I'm going to tell you what I improved on my blog to enable me get average CPC. First of I am going to show you the reasons why some bloggers get poor CPC;


1. Poor Content; you know google AdSense is content driven, all they care about is how good is your content even from the approval level to the earning level. Content is king, so if you have poor content you'll most likely be served poor quality ads as well resulting to poor earnings.


2. Niche; some niches pay higher amount of CPC, especially niches that haven't been saturated so much. So niche is also a determining factor to CPC algorithm.

3. Targeting low paying keywords; this is also a factor, when you Target low CPC keywords you'll no doubt get poor CPC rate.

4. AdSense account Age; this is a serious factor, when your AdSense account is new, google not hasn't fully determined what your content is about, you might get very poor CPC and after a while it will improve to a good extent, if you have good articles, well arranged blog, just be patient your CPC will improve overtime as you keep posting quality articles and targeting rich keywords.

Now, let's move over to how to increase Google AdSense CPC;

When I got AdSense approval newly I was getting a CPC of about 0.04 to 0.07 maximum, I didn't complain so much it was after some days that my CPC went further down the drain, I started getting a more useless CPC sometimes 0.01 sometimes 0.02 it was like the worst period of my blogging career because all my life I've always believed AdSense to be a goldmine. But upon getiing approval I was now kind of seeing something strange and different. Though no account action was embarked upon, I just started doing some brush ups of my website, I did four basic things on my blog ;

~~ Organised my Template

~~ Restored all previously Drafted posts

~~ Increased Keyword Density on my articles

~~ Reduced the number of ads on my blog limiting it to very high priority areas..

These are the four basic things I worked on and believe improved my CPC from the crawling 0.02$ to 0.10 - 0.15 infact it's increasing by the day. Now if you want to improve your google AdSense CPC you just have to first and foremost organize your blog template followed by increasing keyword density in your articles... This is from my experience what I used to get high CPC. Though if your blog is set up well you can just give it time like 2-3 weeks if your CPC doesn't improve then you need to work on your articles and you blog content. I wish you the best, good luck!
This was my CPC before;

Advantages of Blogspot/Blogger Platform | Why You Should Use Blogger

Blogger platform otherwise called Blogspot platform owned by Google has numerous advantages, notwithstanding the popular saying by bloggers and mediocres that blogger platform is for unserious bloggers; a good blogger would in the long run discover that the blogger platform founded by Google has more advantages than the so called best WordPress platform and in this article I'm going to hit the nail on the head by showing the major advantages of the Blogspot platform.

Misconceptions about Blogspot/Blogger platform

1. It can never rank on google google engine; this is the heaviest and most terrible misconceptions about the blogger platform. And this is been paraded by the so called blogging experts that are using WordPress and because of that they think the blogger platform can never rank on any keyword on google. This particular misconception has also been accepted by some medicore Bloggers using the blogger platform and because they don't play their cards well they end up believing the shit and migrating to WordPress because of the poor ranking of Blogspot. But I stand to declare that this particular notion is wrong and very absurd, blogs hosted on blogger platform do rank and get views from Google just like any other blogging CMS can, and moreover Blogger is owned by Google so tell me why google would kill it's its own product on it's search engine; I mean it doesn't make sense. Below are screenshot proofs attesting to the fact that the blogger platform can actually rank on Google; (though I've not been doing SEO well, still I manage to get views from Google)





If you play your card well on Blogger platform you'll still float on the first page of Google.

2. You can't monetise Blogger platform; some medicore Bloggers or people who know nothing about blogging keep saying if you want to earn from blogging that you should blog with WordPress or a better CMS that Blogger can't be monetised. This is a blatant lie as blogs hosted on blogger can be monetised 100%. The funny thing is that they can even be monetised using other ad networks other than google AdSense. I'm using Google AdSense on my blog, so I hope that clears your doubt on the monetisation level.

3. Blogger Blogs are not Fine; yes, the templates provided by blogger aren't all that beautiful, but the provision of HTML /JavaScript code, you can easily code your own theme and use it on your blog. Something that can't be done on WordPress. This is a common misconception about Blogger but it's totally false. There are numerous custom templates on the internet for people to download an install on a Blogger blog. So when it comes to design Blogspot rocks.

4. You look unserious because of the .Blogspot address; it shocks me to say that most people still believe that a blogger blog must have the traditional .Blogspot address, not knowing you can buy a custom domain and make your blog look professional. I.e. using .com, .ng, .com.ng etc. Like this my blog is hosted on blogger and it has a .xyz domain which is a top level domain extension.

Let's me now move over to the advantages of Blogspot/blogger platform

Advantages of using Blogger




1. Bandwidth; let me start with what I regard the most important feature and Advantage of using blogger, with blogger you don't have tow worry about bandwidth or server space, that means that no matter your traffic and number of visitors that visits your blog, your blog speed won't be affected at all. Unlike WordPress, that if the owner doesn't buy a powerful host; a powerful traffic can make the blog load very slowly sometimes even crash. Just imagine what is happening to abollyhost right now. Bloggers that hosted their WordPress blogs on abollyhost are facing serious challenges right now. But we on blogger our blogs are always on air.

2. Security; since Blogger is owned by Almighty Google, you don't have to worry about security as your blog would always be protected from crackers or whatever as long as it's on the blogger platform. This is yet another feature WordPress users don't enjoy.

3. Unlimited Number of Blogs; with one email, one can create numerous blogs on blogger, even upto 100 blogs but it's not the case with WordPress as they are given a maximum number of blogs to create with one account and moreover each blog requires a setting amount of money but on Blogger it's free.

4. Server Issues, Downtime and Renewal; on WordPress you are on your own that means you get to maintain your blog, renew your server when it's about to expire, face your server Issues alone without anyone helping you and all other independent stuff. But on blogger, google handles everything for you, you don't have to stress yourself. All you have to focus on is creating good, lengthy and useful content for r your readers to enjoy and if you want renew and maintain your custom domain which is your brand name.

5. Customization; customizing a blogger blog is quite easy, you just have to code your own theme to whatever level you want and upload and you can always add more widgets through the layout section. Blogger is very easy to customize.

6. Google AdSense; honestly speaking, I believe getting google AdSense approval on a Blogger blog is easier than getting it on a WordPress blog. So your chances of earning big is more intense on Blogger than on WordPress.

I think that's all the wonderful advantages of blogger blogs that must be utilized by you if you want to start a blog in 2019.

In the blogosphere, some Bloggers are always thinking of ways to create unique content on a daily basis while some lazy, bloggers are out there looking for ways of copying their articles and the worst part is that some lazy bloggers scrape your content exactly as it is without even giving credit to the first place the content appeared or where they got it from and this is really annoying and very unfair to some bloggers.



In this post I am going to show hardworking bloggers how to disable right click on their blogs or how to disable the Ctrl + C on their blogs which means no visitor can just stroll into your blog and highlight your hardwork and paste it elsewhere whether on another website or his or her social media wall claiming to be his or her own. 
The worst part of this is that some blogs still rank more than the original website that copied the content from, that's the area google plays it unfairly to some content creators. But not to worry, this particular HTML code will disable copying on your blog and also make it harder for people to copy your blogs content.

How to Disable Copy/Paste on Your Blog/Website

1. First of all you need to click HERE to get the disable Right click code from the link above.

2. When you get the code, simply go to layout if you're using blogger and click on add>> select HTML/JavaScript and in the content box paste the code you got from the link above and save.


3. That's all you need to disable right click on your blog. Now when someone tries to highlight your hardwork, it shows Right click has been disabled... Check image below
That's not all though you'll need another code to disable text selection on your blog and I'll also guide you on how to do that in this post.

How to Disable Text Selection on Blog/Website

1. First of all you need the text selection disabler code which can be gotten HERE.

2. After copying the HTML/JavaScript code, go to layout if you are using blogger and add HTML/JavaScript code, in the content box paste the code you got from the link above and save. {Note: don't paste any code under or above the head or body of your template} 

Do the above and be free from copy/paste visitors or fellow bloggers who visit your blog with the intention to scrape your content word to word.

Google AdSense Vs Propellerads | Full Comparison


Propellerads is a top pop under ad network that offers huge CPM for publishers using their pop under option but as we all know pop unders are very intrusive and uncomfortable to visitors. But nevertheless propellerads is quite a huge competitor to Google AdSense and can be used as an alternative to Google AdSense.

Features of Propellerads

1. 100% Fill rate: propellerads monetises all your traffic and as such there is no left over traffic of yours that will be wasted or left in monetised. Because Propellerads has a system that shows ads to every of your visitor especially those using pop under. So propellerads boasts of a 100% fill rate for publishers.
2. High CPM: Propellerads boasts of high CPM for publishers, a publisher monetising with propellerads would get competitive rates that will surely put some coins in your pocket.

3. 100% Active Support: propellerads has a wonderful support system, each time they are contacted they always respond to queries fast and efficiently. So publishers facing issues or difficulties will always have a support to fall back to.

4. Swift Payment: Propellerads has never failed to pay a publisher when the publisher reaches the threshold, getting paid is assured as long as you get the minimum amount needed for withdrawal.
Google AdSense is the king of ad networks, getting google AdSense approval is the dream of every publisher because of the high CPC rates google AdSense offers. So other ad networks are seen as alternatives to AdSense

Features of Google AdSense

1. 100% Fill Rate: Google AdSense like propellerads offers 100% fill rate, that means at every moment ads will be showing on the publishers blog. There won't be a period where the ad space would go blank or empty.
This 100% fill rate increases the earnings of publishers in a wonderful way.
With Google AdSense, none of your traffic would be wasted.

2. Contextual Ads: Google AdSense displays ads that in one way or the other match the content of the blog it's been displayed on. This particular match increases the number of clicks a publisher can get on the ad he or she placed. Google AdSense checks the blogs content and based on it shows ads to visitors.
3. Swift Payment: Google AdSense also boasts of Swift Payment too, as long as you get genuine clicks on your ads and reach the minimum payment threshold you just have to wait for 21st of the month to get your payment.
The only time you can be denied your payment is when you did fraudulent activities on your account before the withdrawal period.

4. Very high CPC rate: though this is dependent on the quality of your traffic and where your traffic is coming from, it's still generally the best ad network when it comes to offering good CPC rates. Other ad networks don't offer as much as google AdSense that's why AdSense is rated no.1 when it comes to blog monetisation.

Propellerads and Google AdSense compared

1. Propellerads is intrusive i.e. Using their pop under option, it disturbs visitors navigation of your website.

Google AdSense has non intrusive ad option, you don't have to disturb your visitors while using Google AdSense, you just place your ads and start making money.

Google AdSense has a poor support system, that means you can't report a serious issue on their acct and get it resolved so fast. Google AdSense has to improve on their support system and how fast they respond to queries from publishers.

Propellerads has a wonderful support system as stated above, they have a live chat option and also a normal ticket system support team that responds to queries very quickly and efficiently.

Propellerads displays ads that have nothing to do with the blogs content, it's just based on the highest bidder and not dependent on the blogs content or visitors preferences.

Google AdSense displays ads however dependent on blogs content and the visitors preferences. Google AdSense is the best ad network in terms of displaying ads based on visitors preferences and blogs content. Doing this google AdSense increases the revenue of publishers by 50%.

From our experiences using the two ad Networks and from research and information from other Bloggers, we don't recommend propellerads to any blogger, instead if you can't get AdSense approval just try other pop ads networks. Google AdSense is the best ad network when it comes to website monetisation and advertising.

I will break it down now; the recommended for you feature works like the related post feature on most websites but the one i am talking about doesnt just show up close to the footer of a website after the end of a blog post, this particular recommended feature shows up as an anchor ad that sticks on the visitors device be it mobile or desktop. On desktop however it shows up as slider and as such it doesn't perform so well for the website owner because it can be ignored by the visitor browsing your website with a PC. It works best on Mobile because it shows up very boldly and most times from my experience visitors tend to hit it and therefore keep reading my articles and my bounce rate keeps reducing. it works so well and excellently, below is the screenshot of how many hits i have gotten on it since i placed it on my webiste

Another good thing about it is that it is provided by addthis for free; that means you can set it up for your blog or website for free 100%.


Note: This works best if you have nice and catchy blog posts so endeavor to create good content, so that you can enjoy the full potential of this tool as it will glue your visitors to your blog.

How to Set up the Floating Recommended for You Tool on a Blog
1. first of all, logon to addthis.com and tap on dashboard if you are using PC,


2. When it loads you will be shown a sign in page asking for your email and password, but simply tap on any of the sign in options using social media (facebook preferably) to avoid going through unnecessary long processes.

3. When you select any preferred login option you will be redirected to your dashboard, showing analytics, tools and my site option.




4. simply tap on Get The Code which displays on your dashboard too and copy your acct unique code with which the service will read your content and show recommended post to your audience


5. After tapping on the Get the code button you will be shown a code to place in the body section of your website, simply do that and then proceed to adding and activating tools.
6. The next button to click is the Tools Button, tap on it and select the tool you want to activate for your website, for the recommended for you tool you have to select the related post tool and proceed to editing to your taste

7. Edit and activate the tool(s) you want and note that once you have copied the initial code to your website, every other tool you activate will be sent to your website live! you dont have to place the code again. Every new tool you add will start working on your website automatically as long as the initial code was pasted accurately.




After the editing and set up, check your website to see if its successfully displaying. if it starts displaying then you set it up accurately but if it doesnt just give it like 10minutes and recheck... that's all enjoy!!! Drop comments if you are still confused.

All You Need To Know About Google AdSense Approval Algorithm

Hello Guys, getting Google AdSense approval for those who know how to is one of the most simple tasks to engage in but those who either out of impatience or ignorance find it very hard to get AdSense approval and unfortunately for me I fall under the second category (people who are impatient and ignorant) that's why I had to face the consequences. But in this post I'm going to show us how i finally got AdSense approval after applying consistently for over 30times.

Honestly, it wasn't such an easy task and I even started concluding in my heart that Google AdSense wasn't isn't just for my blog Gistrealz. Until I tried for the 30th time with very carefree attitude and boom! Surprisingly I was approved in just 16days.

How to Get Google AdSense Approval and Also What to Stay Away from

1. Don't Ask the Google AdSense Help forum whether you'll be approved: this is what I must confess made me to keep reapplying and reapplying without been patient for an official reply for Google AdSense team. I once asked a question there and got a very embarrassing response that I should forget AdSense because what I post is not unique, it's not original, it can be found in the same sort of words everywhere etc... Those were just useless statements coming from mediocres that had no relationship with the AdSense team; they made me each time I ask them and they give me a negative response I'll go and cancel the AdSense application, not knowing those silver, gold expert were just uninformed participants in that forum that knew nothing. So if you want to apply for AdSense don't ask them of your chances of getting approval because they'll end up discouraging you no matter how good your blog is. Just apply and keep mute. If you have good content you'll surely be approved.

2. Publish lengthy, quality content devoid of spelling errors: I'll always say this because it's very important and it's part of the tricks I used, I just made my old lengthy articles appear as new posts so that AdSense team will see those ones and just approve my blog and guess what? It worked. Make sure before applying you have already 9 lengthy, meaningful content that is original i.e. fully created by you.

3. Don't use any other ad network: yes this is a huge determinant if you are to get Google AdSense approval, because some ad networks display nude picture on blogs to increase clicks and if you are unlucky to be using such an ad network while your website reaches the top for AdSense review then be rest assured that you'll be disapproved. I'm not saying you can't be approved with other ad networks but to be on the safe side remove all banner ads from your website when your application reaches 1week. After approval you can place them back.

4. Make sure you focus on the niche you love: don't change content because of AdSense ... This is what I never knew, AdSense isn't interested in your niche as long as you write and own all the articles on your blog. This was my mistake, I was deceived to thinking that Google AdSense doesn't want tech blogs again which was a blatant lie from the Google AdSense so called experts on that godforsaken forum. So forget that shit and keep writing your quality content.

5. Warning: don't pay anybody for trick, just believe in yourself and be patient. AdSense isn't the end of the world so apply and relax 😊. You'll get it if you own all your posts.

6. Use less images on your blog, let your blog be more of texts than images so that you won't be disapproved upon review.

~~~Facts~~~

Did you know that even if you change your theme after a week of application that you won't be slapped with a Valuable Inventory: Under Construction? Yes I just discovered that because I changed my template twice during the review... But each time I still placed the initial verification code between the <head> of my blog.

Did you know that it's best to apply with a .xyz domain extension because Google owns the Company. So your chances increase if you apply with a .xyz domain ... Though you must have quality content.

Did you know that Google takes quality content as content with over 600words? Yes they do.

Did you know that you mustn't apply with a privacy policy, about us, contact us page?! Yes! You mustn't, i.also confirmed that because my privacy policy page was redirecting to my dead domain gistreals.com before I was approved... So the key thing is publish good content.

Did you know that you can get approved with just 10posts? Yes if you have 10 lengthy, meaningful posts you'll get approved.

I think that's all you need to know about Google AdSense, now if you enjoyed the post do well to drop a meaningful comment...
If you have any questions, drop them in the comment box and it will be responded to immediately.
Also if you think you need your website checked for chances of approval drop in comment box for me to run a check, don't ask those so called experts on the Google AdSense forum they'll break your spirit. Thanks

Incredible Ways Of Making Money From a Blog | in 2019


Advertising on blogs and websites has become stale news and it's gradually fading away as more and more visitors tend to know the use of those adverts on websites. Visitors hardly click on banners now because the internet is getting wider everyday with more and more people getting knowledge of how those things work. Imagine a blogger placing a cpc banner on a site for a month and all he earns after checking back is just 0.10$ it's terrible right? Yes it is, that is what banner advertisment is gently turning to; one can be working hard and getting good number of views only for the views to fetch him nothing because of poor CTR (click through rate). This is the reason why advertisements of blogs and websites are turning to old news. And with the influx of advert networks things keep getting worse, advertisers now choose or run their ads on different platforms which automatically results to lower budget on campaigns all pointing at low cpc rate on ads bloggers use on their site. Amidst the fact that advertising is going, good ad networks like Google AdSense still remain on top of the game because they charge advertisers alot to display ads so that they can settle themselves while still settling the publishers which are bloggers and web owners. The problem now is that upon the way AdSense charge their advertisers some bloggers never still make it i.e. reach the minimum threshold until they quit or get tired of blogging all because of little to no clicks on those banner advertisements. Today however, I am gonna list down alot of other ad networks which I recommend bloggers can make use of to monetise their views i.e. direct views on blog without your visitors necessarily clicking on any banner that will take them away from your site;


Alternative Ways Bloggers can Earn apart from using Google AdSense

I know as a blogger you must have searched this a million times on Google but believe me you that this isn't like what you've seen before this is a brand new content not scraped or picked up from anywhere it's 100% unique and new and will surely without reasonable doubt be of immeasurable use to you as a blogger or aspiring blogger.

No. 1: NG Adverts: this ad network is making the first position on this compilation because this post is targeted at Nigerian Bloggers and not foreigners; this ad network too is a definition of CPM ad network (Cost per mile), they are not fully cpm but as a blogger you can earn significant amount of money if you get views ranging in thousands or hundreds because they display ads that are cpm and CPC based. That means you get revenue for impressions on the ad and also clicks on the ad. To do this you just have to create native ads and place on your site, because most times native ads are cpm based majorly. Another wonderful thing about this ad network is that it's compatible to any other ad networks ranging from Google Adsense to Media.net; if you want to apy for AdSense you can also apply for Ng Adverts and start earning few bucks in naira before you get AdSense approval.
The minimum payout of this ad network unlike AdSense which is $100 is just N3000... Which you can get easily if you place your ads strategically and also if you get good number of views and clicks.
You can sign up for Ng Adverts and expect approval within 24hours by clicking HERE-Sign Up on NG Adverts

No. 2: Pop Ads: this is the rightful ad Network that should have made my first but it's still ok at second positon since it's a pop under ad. Pop ads is the best pop under ad network in the world with very good CPM rate which the publisher is giving the power to set, that means you can set your cpm rate at $2 per 1000 views which means that you get $2 per 1000 people that see your ad. This ad network is very good in terms of earnings just that their anti ad block solution is terrible, it doesn't bypass adblockers for real so most of your traffic won't be covered. This ad network though being a popunder network it's still far less intrusive than some banner ad networks that bloggers litter all over their sites even excessively within their content.
The minimum payout is $5 which you can reach easily if you get good clean traffic.
You can also get enough money from popads if your site is a downloading or entertainment site because your visitors have to click to get what you offer. The algorithm works in that way as in per click on any corner of your site it triggers the adverts which will open behind your normal tab which means your visitor won't be taken off your content.
The Alexa rank of popads is 78.
If you want to sign up for this wonderful ad network clock HERE-Sign up now

No. 3: PopCash: popcash is an ad network very similar to popads but not up to popads in terms of earnings but close to sane in terms of trustworthiness. Popcash offers lower CPM if you get your traffic from tier 3 countries i.e. 3rd world countries. And in Nigeria here, the rates they offer is good but not very good like that of popads but popcash is usually advisable because it's the most unintrusive popunder ad network in the world... Their algorithm is wonderful, the ad is set to pop only once in 24hours for every visitor so their income level is really very poor compared to popads. But it's worth a serious trial.
The minimum payout is a little higher than popads with $10 as minimum payment threshold.
If you want to sign up to this great ad network click HERE-Sign up and enjoy
No. 4: Popmyads: popmyads is a spectacular popunder network that offers very high rates and worldwide worldwide traffic and with it you can't lose 1% of your traffic as all will be monetised. They have a wonderful.support system and their approval requirements are quite easy to reach. The approval process takes just 12hours and after that you create their ever effective anti adblock code and place on your site for maximum earnings... Though you are not given the ability to control or edit your cpm rates; they fix it for you according to your website traffic, device of visitors, where your traffic is coming from etc.
The minimum payout is $5
If you wanna sign up for popmyads click HERE- to enjoy cash
Making money from a website you own isn't restricted to using AdSense or ad networks you can also sell what you produce on your site i.e. makrketing your products on your blog to get more sales, that's a more credible and profitable way of earning from your high traffic website. Just take time and write a book or whatever it is that will.interest your readers and create a banner for it and then place the banner on your website or blog. When visitors show interest they contact you directly and pay you for it... That's a very good way of earning using your blog while still using Ad networks.

You can also run direct ads for people, instead of going through a mediation service like AdSense you can just run the ads directly for the company owners and people. To do this make sure your website is a high traffic website. Everything depends on your traffic.
