Today it’s almost impossible to see a single site or blog without Google Adsense ads. Many people were tried to compete with Google’s Adsense, such as Yahoo, Microsoft etc, but no one was able to catch up with Google Adsense.
Adsense is a great tool, but you need to tweak it to make maximum out of it. You might have heart about MFA (Made for Adsense) sites. Their content is targeting some high paying keywords. They managed to get ads which pay more than $5 per click.
These evil MFA sites buy cheap ads from Google (using Adword) and drive traffic to their sites. For example take I have a MFA site. I subscribe to Google Adword and choose to pay $0.1 for one click. My ad will appear in a site, when a visitor of the site clicks on my ad they’ll be directed to my site. This will cost me $0.1 only. This visitor who came to my site might click on an ad on my site where I’ll make $5.
Let’s do some math, $5 – $0.1 = 4.9. I make $4.9 by spending $0.1. Some case it’ll go upto $50. It’s so unfair. Isn’t it?
These MFA sites will end up stealing our traffic for such low price. We’ll gain only $0.1 for a click. We must find out and wipe of these stupid evils out of our site. Then only we can make decent amount of money from Adsense.
Google don’t take much concern about this matter as they’re earning in both ways. They don’t care as long as they earn just like a WHORE.
We can use Google AdSense’s competitive ad filter feature to bring down those ugly MFAs. 😉
But how to get the list of MFA sites??? Don’t worry http://www.adsblacklist.com is coming into action to help you out. I used this site and got 133 potential MFA sites which may suck traffic out of my blog and leave few pennies. They track down MFAs specific to your site using the keywords you provide about your site.
Once you got the list, go to Adsense and click on AdSense Setup tab. Now click on Competitive Ad Filter and list your sites on the given text box. Within 12 hours Google will stop showing ads from these sites and it’ll show genuine sites.
This is only just a step. New MFAs will come every day and will eat your traffic. Time to time we have to check and block those people from our site.
