Blog Monetization – Tips To Reach Higher eCPMs

Since the rise of self-serve ad platforms (e.g. Adsgadget, AdSense, etc.) monetizing a blog has become increasingly easy. But making a LOT of money off your blog requires a little extra effort like good traffic, monetizing blog in better way and many other things.



Here are a few tips to help you take the most advantage out of your self-serve ad platform and to generate lot of Money.

Location, location, location.

The position of your banners is a key factor. A banner’s position on a site has a huge influence on its performance, so you would think that better position means better revenue. Generally this is true, but you have to test to really know. Maximize your banner’s performance by placing the ad code near the top of your page or within your site’s content. Place the ad in the most viewed sections (top fold, left sidebar, next to the main buttons of your site, rich media banners such as stay ons, sliders, etc)

High volumes of traffic.

In order to get the highest yield from your site, you need to have enough volumes to analyze the stats and optimize. Self-serve ad platforms, such as Adsgadget, work with an optimization algorithm that allows the system to get to know a site’s traffic and assess how to best monetize it. The higher the traffic volumes you send your ad platform, the faster and more efficient the optimization process will be and will help your ad platform optimize your traffic to reach the highest eCPMs possible.

Use rich media.

It’s no secret that interactive ads work better than static ones. By using rich media banners you increase your site visitors‘ experience and entice them to click on your banner ads. Use pop-ups and pop-unders, try sliders and stay ons! These ads can reach 10 times higher eCPMs!

Test different ad sizes.

Variety is important, especially when it comes to advertising online. Test as many ad sizes as possible on your blog; certain ad sizes generate better results than others if integrated correctly with the blog’s content and design layout.

Rotate your ads.

Rotating your banner ads is a great way to maximize their performance. It keeps your site fresh and your visitors from going crazy after seeing the same banners time and time again!  Set frequency caps to monitor the number of times a specific visitor is shown a specific banner.

Don’t stress.

Always remember that monetizing your traffic takes time and effort. Be patient and give your self-serve ad platform the chance to know your traffic. Only then will your platform be able to accurately optimize and give you the high rates you’re looking for.

What Makes ABT a Successful Blog?

Ok, so you too want to know what makes ABT (AllBloggingTips) a successful blog.


Trust me, I don’t know myself ;) and am still wondering what the secret behind it is. May be we can ask Ammar Ali, the man behind this beautifully maintained blog, himself to write an extensive post on it.

But, with my three months in blogging field, the mention of ABT and Ammar Ali, is not new or rare. I am sure one year back; everyone would have thought it to be yet another blog from a teenager.


ABT Completes One Year of Successful Blogging. Thanks For Your Continual Support.

Am I not unnecessarily glorifying the blog?

Has it anything to do with this blog post?

Incase you are not aware of, its ABT’s first anniversary. Many congratulations to it and all its readers, including myself. Here I would like to suggest the reasons for ABT’s success and how newbie bloggers can take a lesson or two from these.

Awesome Domain Name

The best thing about AllBloggingTips is the choice of its domain name. Although at first looks to be a cheeky long URL, but if you see it from SEO point of view, it is one of the best I have seen so far.

Because of the commonly used terms like All, Blogging and Tips, its post usually ranks higher with search queries related to blogging tips. And considering that the domain is just one year old, it is indeed a good find.

Un-paralleled Generosity

Apart from being generous in terms of sharing resourceful information over the Internet, ABT also engages its readers. Periodically it conducts giveaways to make its readers something to look for.

On the occasion of its first anniversary, a lucrative giveaway comprising of 5 web hosting from a2hosting for one year, has been announced. You can see details here. This shows the level of commitment ABT has for its loyal readers. :D

Purposeful Blog Branding

Ammar takes full advantage of ABT’s social presence and popularity, for branding purposes. Being a PR 3 blog, it receives about 4-5 guest posts each week. So ABT is never short of quality content for its readers. This gives Ammar plenty of time to create a brand out of ABT.

If you take a look at ABT’s archive for the month of November, then I am sure you would be amazed at first. Just by posting only five blog posts in 30 days of time, how come ABT been maintaining an Alexa Rank of around 13,000 constantly?

And, yes, 13,000 is not a very stable rank to hold on to for long without posting regularly. It’s all about creating a trustable brand and few SEO techniques. That’s how ABT has been drawing traffic towards it seamlessly.

Social Presence

ABT has strong fan following across all major social networks. Apart from blogging, both ABT and Ammar spend valuable time with readers on social networking sites and forums.

Currently, ABT has 2846 Twitter followers, 267 have it in their circles and 3363 Facebook users have liked it. This is a testimony of the fact that, ABT must be doing something right for which it is so admired.

  • Twitter: 2846 followers
  • Facebook: 3362 likes
  • Google+: 267 circles

Reading Experience

And last, but never the least, in the end its all about improving reader’s experience. Without this, all other fails. ABT makes sure all its content is effective, informative and easy to follow.

Other that the content, it also facilitates distraction free reading. It’s lucid Thesis typography with minimal text formatting, simple website design and color combinations, inviting internal link positing, makes browsing very soothing.

Oh, I forgot to mention. AllBloggingTips is a weblog belonging to the blogging niche. Its CEO, Ammar Ali, is a passionate Blogger, Entrepreneur, Affiliate marketer from Pakistan.  ABT covers regular fresh updates on WordPress, Blogger and SEO related topics. It has been maintaining a constant Alexa Rank of 13,000 for the last three months. It’s a PR 3 blog that accepts guest posts. Feel free to write for it. Also do not forget to subscribe its newsletter.

Stay updated about latest posts and giveaways on Facebook, Twitter and Google+.

This was my three months experience with ABT. Feel free to share yours in the comment section. If you have any suggestion for ABT, do mention too.

Note from Ammar: 

Hurray! One year has just gone. I’m really impressed and excited!! :D

All the credit goes to you. Without YOU I can’t reach this position so fast. As you all know that I started this blog a year back. And it has been growing super fast from then with your support.

A year with many creations, important decisions, new friendships, new ideas. I’m really happy that in one year I managed to have best blog Love all the comments and all the creations that you share with me!!
