Google AdWords

Google AdWords is an advertising service by Google for businesses which wants to display advertisement on Google and its advertising network. Google AdWord is Google online platform that can drive interested people to your website, AdWords allow you to take advantages of millions of searches conducted on Google each day.

How does it work

You create ads for your business and choose them when you want them to appear on Google next to the relevant search results. The concept is very simple you enter words (AdWords) which is relevant to you product or services and then Google AdWords show ads on Google when anyone searches for that or related words

The keyword, when searched, Google search engine triggers your ad to be shown on the right-hand side or above Google search results. If your AdWords ad is clicked on, Google search users are then directed to your website.

Even though your website is not among the top result Google AdWords still shows your add on the top based on the AdWords (Keywords chosen by you).

What if people are not searching the keyword set by you?

If the keyword is just a part of the phrase searched on Google then also your ads will be shown so you need not to worry about. When choosing keywords for your AdWords campaigns different matching options are available.

Broad Match When your keyword in is Broad Match.  Your ads are eligible to appear whenever a user searches any word in your key phrase, in any order. It also allows misspellings and synonyms

Broad Match Modified you have to lock keyword and that means you are telling Google that you only want your ad to show when that word appears in the search query. The query can be in any order.

Phrase Match Ads will be shown for searches that match the exact phrase.

Exact Match Your ad will be shown for searches that exact matches with the AdWords set with Google.

Negative Match Here we have to take care for the unnecessary display of ads because you are to paying for each click which leads users to your website. Choose keyword for which you never want to display ads because its will absolutely a waste and not at all related to your brand or service.

Suppose my keyword is “SMS” but if any search phrase has my keyword as a part of it then also google trigger your ads google search results.

Where you want to advertise?

Google AdWords work location set by you where you want to advertise, suppose your business is set in India and you want to advertise in India only. You can set the location while choosing the keywords (AdWords).

This below search is made from Chennai India

How you get the keywords- cost of advertising

Each keyword you choose will have a cost per click (CPC) bid amount. The bids specify the maximum amount you’re willing to pay each time someone clicks your ad (the maximum cost-per-click).  A higher CPC bid can allow your ad to show at a higher position on the page. Anyone one who is paying higher CPC bid for same keyword will get the privilege to see his add on top of others who is paying less. Use cost-per-click (CPC) bidding and you’ll pay only when someone actually clicks on your ad and comes to your site. This is the easiest way to bid.

Set daily budget for advertisement

Google AdWords provide the facility of setting up daily budget so that you won’t exceeds from your budget. Set a daily budget and let AdWords adjust your CPC bids to bring you the most clicks possible within that budget.

Who Reviews the Reviewers, How India’s Online Businesses Are Fighting Fake Reviews

When you’re shopping for new gadgets online or trying to look up a restaurant where you can get your dinner, what’s the one thing you do before clicking the buy button, or deciding where to go? In our case, that’s checking user reviews to help make up our minds. Professional reviews and news articles have their space, but many others have told us that customer reviews on e-commerce websites are the final word in deciding whether to buy a product. But have you ever wondered how reliable the customer reviews you see posted online really are?
If you’re trying to buy a new gadget, and half the reviews are one or two stars, while the rest are five-star, which set of ratings are you supposed to trust? Of course, people are much more likely to write about their negative experiences – think back yourself to how many customer reviews you’ve written. If something goes wrong, no matter how minor, we customers will often rush to different forums and Facebook groups to vent our righteous anger, but if you’ve had a good meal or bought a good book, how many times did you follow it up with a review?
But that doesn’t mean that you can trust all the positive reviews either as brands and businesses aren’t above reviewing their own products and services, or hiring people to do it for them, the way you could hire fake Twitter followers. You probably shouldn’t take all negative customer reviews at face value either – recently, the launch of a phone in India was accompanied by an email from a “social media consultant” hired by a rival firm to leave negative reviews of the device on social networks like Facebook and Twitter, along with e-commerce sites like Amazon.
The sites themselves don’t want false reviews because they hurt the platform’s credibility, so you’ll see many of them taking steps to weed them out. For some, the method of ensuring that only real customers can place reviews is simple – allow only people who have bought products from their own platform to write reviews. That’s the practice that some companies, including healthcare search platform Practo, follow. But others go a step further to ensure that the reviews on their sites are genuine.
“We make use of state-of-the-art machine learning algorithms to detect fake reviews,” says Flipkart’s Chief Technology Officer, Amod Malviya. “We constantly learn from the data to discover new patterns of fraudulent reviews.”
[amazon_link asins=’B01LZXGBZR,B011AZH09C,B071KW9GTT,B00MWI2IS0′ template=’ProductCarousel’ store=’jammy554-20′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’7fdcf153-acdf-11e7-a078-4f906b716129′]

Tracking with technology:

Sites use a mixture of techniques to sieve fake comments out of genuine ones. The problem isn’t that widespread, claims Mouthshut’s CEO and Founder, Faisal Farooqui. Mouthshut – one of the first review sites in India, where you can leave your reviews about anything, from hotels to cars, to electronics, mobile phones, or colleges or real estate – sees under 1 percent dubious reviews, he says, but even so, it’s a serious concern that led the company to build a “sizeable” team to address the issue. Farooqui told NDTV Gadgets that the company looks at the metadata of posts to determine if they are genuine.

faisal_farooqui_mouthshut_pic.jpg

“We look at the metadata and a various other parameters as well,” he says, “like the IP address, timings [at which posts come in], the city, velocity [or frequency at which posts come in], potential for astroturfing, and many other things.”
If, for example, a very large number of reviews are being made from the same device, about the same company or product, but using different user names, then there is a pretty good chance that someone is trying to fake the ratings, one way or another. Similarly, even if the inputs are coming from different places, if you get a flurry of similar reviews about a place or a product, then it’s going to look suspect. So, if a product has been getting a steady stream of 3-4 reviews in a day, and it starts to get 30-40, even if they’re spread out through the day, that’s still a red flag.
Beyond that, the company uses a host of other signals from the text itself, similar to the spam filters in your email. Farooqui refused to tell us exactly what flags are used by Mouthshut to identify fakes, because “revealing the nuts and bolts of that would enable those interested in posting fake reviews on our website to use reverse engineering to bypass our firewalls,” but he did say that “fake reviews always leave a trail. After years of experience built in trying to spot dubious reviews, we can pick out the ones that are not real quite easily and efficiently.”
Flipkart’s Malviya tells us that the metadata of a review is typically more important than the review itself in detecting spam. He, too, refused to get into the details for similar reasons, but he did tell us that Flipkart looks “at who is writing the review for what (seller/ product), the content of the review and the different patterns therein.”
“Countering fake reviews and ratings is becoming a growing challenge for platforms like ours,” says Zomato’s CEO Deepinder Goyal. “To ensure authenticity we have corrective measures in place, such as IP tracking, user credibility scores as well as manual moderation of reviews.”
“We use proprietary spam control algorithms for detecting fake reviews,” he adds. “We keep strengthening our spam filters from time to time to ensure that we are one step ahead of the offenders. Recently we removed some 12,000 reviews, mostly positive ones, as a part of this exercise.”
Multiple reviews of the same restaurant from the same IP address is a red flag, as it looking out for the language used, and tracking the behaviour of user handles. According to one person familiar with the process at Zomato, there are over 20 different parameters that are considered in the text alone, not counting the metadata and other technical information.

Being human:

While technology is a big part of the process, removing fakes wouldn’t be possible without human intervention. Companies say relying only on data like IP tracking and spam filters can lead to false positives, which is why Zomato, for example, has a 20-person team that looks at the potentially fake reviews to decide what to do next.

deepinder_goyal_zomato.jpg

Zomato’s Goyal tells us that the ‘neutrality team’ works to remove fake reviews to ensure that Zomato remains a neutral platform for users and restaurants.
“We delete user profiles if we find that they have violated our guidelines and policies. Maintaining the credibility of reviews is of utmost importance to us,” says Goyal. “Our neutrality team utilises a combination of back-end algorithms, metadata, as well as the human eye to keep out falsified experiences.”
“As much as we’d like reviews to be organic there have been instances of users posting reviews for a fee,” he adds. “In case a blogger sharing their reviews on Zomato dines as a guest of the restaurant or receives something for free, we ask them to give disclosure in their review as part of our guidelines.” Filtering such reviews out using technology is pretty difficult. In fact, paid-for reviews have created a new problem for Zomato to deal with – plagiarism.
Goyal says, “We issue a first warning in case of plagiarism and promotional content and if we have established proof that these users have been getting monetary compensation in return for reviews we directly remove their profiles without a warning. We send them an email thereafter letting them know of the same.”
“Time and again we have removed some of our top contributors from the platform when we’ve been able to establish that they were accepting money in exchange of reviews,” he adds.

Ask your users:

Aside from these tools, nearly everyone also relies heavily on the users themselves to ensure that reviews are real.
Mouthshut, for example, lets users vote down reviews that don’t seem genuine. “Just like any individual can post reviews, other readers can rate the usefulness of a review,” says Farooqui. “Essentially, fake reviews get a ‘Not Useful’ rating and are buried at the bottom.”
Mouthshut does not remove fake reviews, instead marks them as such, so the site’s users can see where people tried to misuse the platform.

mouthshut_reviews.jpg

“[Our] compliance team works to promptly stamp such reviews as ‘fake’,” says Farooqui. “The presence of this stamp is very shameful for the brand, and alerts our readers [to fakes] when they read such reviews.”
Trusting customer feedback to set the visibility of reviews is how Amazon approaches the issue as well.
“We are very protective of our customer voice and go to great lengths to keep reviews up on the site, even if they are aggressively critical or obviously untrue,” an Amazon India spokesperson told NDTV Gadgets over email. “This is essential in order to maintain trust in the authenticity of our reviews as a whole. We let other customers weigh in by voting or commenting. We are deliberately impartial.”
But these methods are often not enough because posting fake reviews is becoming a big business.
“The problem is with the mushrooming of the cottage industry of digital and social media agencies,” says Farooqui. “We have found that many of these are being hired by brands write fake reviews on Mouthshut. We have identified a handful of such agencies and keep a close watch on their activities on the website.”
Even Amazon, which otherwise tries to be “deliberately impartial” uses these methods to look out for fake reviews.
“We have detection and enforcement in place for fake sock puppet accounts,” states an Amazon India spokesperson, adding, “We require customers to make a purchase (and pay for it) before they post a review or before their vote counts publicly.” This ensures that Amazon can then track the posts from that user.
“Requiring a purchase allows us to collect uniquely identifying information about the account. We use this information to prevent content created by sock puppet accounts,” explains the Amazon India spokesperson. “For example, if you opened three accounts in order to post three one-star reviews on a book, we would detect that these accounts were related and remove the reviews. Put another way – reviewers are not anonymous to Amazon, even though the reviewer’s identity is not disclosed to other shoppers.”

A never-ending journey:

“Our experience is that it’s not a one-off thing, and needs constant monitoring,” says Mouthshut’s Farooqui. “Making sure our website is free of dubious reviews is a constant battle. We have a team that works 24/7, 365 days a year to make sure this doesn’t happen.”
That doesn’t mean that spammers don’t work as hard to stay in business. According to Farooqui, these groups have also been changing their strategies in a bid to keep making an impact.
“Earlier, they would post good things about the brand (who they were hired by) while pulling down the competitors, if any,” says Farooqui. “At MouthShut, we have a mechanism of naming-and-shaming by putting the ‘stamp’ of fake on a dubious review. So now these companies have changed tack. They now post fake positive reviews of their competitors’ products and services to discredit them. They make it so obvious that these are ‘plants’ that we are forced to stamp them as fakes.”
Zomato’s Goyal also says that filtering systems can’t be watertight, and that’s why community moderation plays an important role.
“We’re forced to find new ways to tackle issues when people give us reason to,” he says. “In addition to our automatic spam filters, we actively monitor all reviews on Zomato. We also rely very heavily on our community on Zomato to raise a red flag every time they notice a suspicious review.”
Which is why, even though the companies are working to weed out fake reviews, at the end of the day, it all comes down to us as consumers. So the next time you see a review that doesn’t seem real, make sure that you report it as fake, so that you are helping other customers make a better decision.

Search engine optimization (SEO)

Search engine optimization (SEO) is the practice of increasing the quantity and quality of traffic to your website through organic search engine results

The world of SEO is full of so many different search engines, firms, opinions, and more. Google recommends one thing, Bing another, and then companies and message boards tell you not to believe it. To increase your rank on search engine few tips you can do by your own are

Publish Relevant Content– No one will come again to read irrelevant content

Update Your Content Regularly – Update your content regularly this will help your visitors to be connected

Metadata – Tittle, Description, keyword (Choose appropriate words)

Have a link – worthy site- Focus on creating relevant links within the text. Instead of having “click here” links, try writing out the name of the destination. “Click here” has no search engine value beyond the attached URL.

Use tags – Tags will help search engine to recognizes your website among others

if you want to be a professional blogger and want to earn from your website it’s really important to understand that without SEO it would be really hard to get your blogs/website popular in the market because these days every one uses search engine optimization(SEO) to get there blog searched on the search engine at the first place and you also know if anyone getting the content at the first place no one check for second result, you can’t significantly increase the number of visitor just by sharing your post on social media.

It’s important that you don’t ignore SEO, familiarize yourself with the concept of SEO and optimize your blog and your articles to rank well in search engines.

Comment on Other Blogs

The right comment on a highly authoritative blog can send you lots of traffic; identify the top blogs in your niche and start interacting and commenting on blogs on a regular basis. This will get the blogger and members of his community to notice you and visit your blog, leading to more traffic for you; you might even get a link, or invitation to guest blog out of it.

Invite Others to Guest Post on Your Blog

Guest blogging on other blogs is indeed a powerful way to get traffic and gain exposure to your blog, but inviting others to guest post for your own blog can be equally powerful. If you invite others to write for you, especially if they have a much bigger reach than you do, they are more likely to share their guest post with their readers. The result of this will be more traffic to your blog.

Keep one thing in mind have passion and patience  it will take time to increase number of visitors and views keep on posting better content, keep on promoting, have a variety of section on your blog.

How does Google AdSense work

Make money using your blogging website

 

How does Google AdSense work

 

Hello readers!!!

How are you? Hope you all are doing great. Today, I would like to help in knowing about how Google AdSense work and how we can make money by getting that in our Website / Blog.

What is AdSense?

AdSense is a program that allows bloggers and website owners to make money by displaying Google ads. You’ve probably seen the ads all over the place, including in Google search results. Basically, Google gets the largest cut and you get a small percentage.

Here we are talking about the ads which are displayed on the website and Google pays you whenever user clicks on the ads. It is generally called as pay per click (PPC) which is one of the important ways to earn from a website almost all the blogging sites uses Google AdSense

Two types

Impression:  This is basically the number of view on the page or post contains the ads.

Click: if someone clicks on the ads displayed on the post or pages.

When to start allowing Google AdSense on your website:

The most important things you should keep in mind that you need a significant amount of visitors on your website to have many numbers of clicks on the AdSense displayed on your website. So the most necessary thing is to first promote your website anywhere possible and try to increase numbers of visitor on a daily basis. Once the numbers of visitor and followers are significant enough then you should allow the AdSense to display on your website. However you can add AdSense from the first day you start your website, but it’s not worth it.

Tips –if you are a professional blogger or website owner and eagerly want to earn money, it doesn’t work that way. Please have patience because getting popularity and much more numbers of visitors is not a one day process.

Who and all are eligible:

If you are using a self-hosted WordPress website you can go to the AdSense website and apply for an account. Once your account is approved you will receive a code you can place anywhere in your website. If required you can use plugins for appropriate placements of ads

If you are using free WordPress you are not eligible to monetize.

If you use blogger you can use monetize option and manage AdSense account

Link to use Adsense account: https://www.google.com/adsense/signup

How much money I can make?:

The Most obvious and important Question which come to almost every blogger and website owner mind is that how much money we can make

Let me tell you there are lots of people who use blogging as a full time profession. So it’s very much clear that you can earn lots of money but how much? There are lots of blogger whom I know who didn’t make a single penny for more than 6-7 months but as I mentioned before being patience is key to this profession.

There is lots of variance in the how much you can make basically it depends on few factors

  1. Some ads worth more money per click than other.
  2. Numbers of view on the pages containing ads.

To understand this we need understand one term which is really important

CPM: Cost per thousand (CPM) is a marketing term used to denote the price of 1,000 advertisement impressions on one webpage. If a website publisher charges $2.00CPM, that means an advertiser must pay $2.00 for every 1,000 impressions of its ad.

If you earned $1 impression CPM, what would 1,000 visitors a day earn you?
If you know the CPM then the remaining variables are:

  • Ads per page : The average number of ad units displayed per page impression
  • Pages per visit : How many pages the average visitor views
  • Pages per visit X Average ad units X Impression CPM = Revenue per 1000 visitors

A website serving an average of 3 pages per visit, each with 2 ad units and an impression CPM of $1 would therefore earn $6 per 1000 visits.

3. Number of Clicks on the ads

Basically it is fixed for each number of clicks, but there is different price for different ads

Things you should defiantly know:

  • Never ask you friend or family to click on ads: Since the Google algorithm is really strong and have the logic which can easily recognize who are the people who are clicking on ads on frequently basis
  • Never click your own ads: Strong algorithm of Google will recognize you and block your website from AdSense
  • Don’t use more than 2 ads block on a single page: it will confuse and irritates user and may end up getting no click at all.
  • Pay attention to your ads click: if immediately the numbers of click have increased within a day then something is wrong. If someone intentionally clicking on your ads everywhere on your website which may leads to banned your website from AdSense.
