Blogexplosion:can it terminate the adsense account

You may wonder what exactly is traffic exchange programs. Blogexplosion is one of the popular traffic exchange programs. Now, I’m not saying Blogexplosion is bad service. Instead, it helps in getting traffics to your website. However, if you’re putting Adsense on your site it may not be suitable to use such service.
Recently in April 12, Mike Deeringer from the AdSense Publisher Support had stressed the importance of this point.
As many of you already know, our program policies strictly prohibit any means of artificially generating ad impressions or clicks, including third-party services such as paid-to-click, paid-to-surf, auto-surf, and click-exchange programs. These programs offer incentives for users to view web pages or click on ads, resulting in activity that is harmful to our advertisers.
We occasionally receive questions from publishers interested in using traffic exchanges to bring traffic to their site. While these services may help advertise your site, we don’t recommend using them, as they may also result in similar invalid activity.We realize that you may have questions about a specific traffic service and whether it could potentially create invalid impressions or clicks. However, please understand that we’re unable to comment on any particular third-party service.
According to Mike, it didn’t really say which third-party service you shouldn’t use but it is stated implicitly that all type of traffic exchange programs will end up being banned from the big G.
To avoid being banned, think twice before joining any traffic exchange as far as possible try to stay away from auto-surf programs or traffic exchange programs.

Add dynamic content to your blog

I'd like to share this earth-shattering news with you: David Hasselhoff (of Knight Rider and Baywatch fame) has come out with a classic new music video that should not be missed. How did I find out about it? I saw a dynamically generated link to it from Google Related Links at the bottom of my blog. (And I've found some other gems that way that have to wait for another post.)

Let me give you what the MBAs call the 8-second elevator pitch (our buildings are not very tall around here) on Google Related Links. The idea is you surf over to and start creating a Google Related Links unit for your site. You pick the color, size, and types of content (related news, videos, searches, web pages) that you want to appear in this Related Links unit, and then copy the JavaScript over to your site just as you would do for an AdSense ad unit. Google crawlers will then crawl your site, see what type of content is there, and then dynamically show links in the unit that relate to your site.

While Google Related Links don't give you revenue directly, you can use them to keep your site fresh and interesting without any maintenance. Happy visitors mean repeat visits. And if you're feeling especially creative, try alternating between Google ads and Google Related Links in a given space on your page. This will encourage people to look in that space for interesting dynamic content.

Oh, and by the way, you're more than welcome to click the links in a Google Related Links unit on your own site. Happy surfing!

The AdSense API

The AdSense API:
If you're a web developer or host, you may remember that we introduced you to the AdSense API last May. With the AdSense API, your users can create their own AdSense accounts on your site, and display ads alongside the content that they have created. They can also manage their accounts and view ad performance and earnings reports, all on your site.

In addition, you can enhance your customers' user experience by helping them to make money from their content and by giving them the ability to perform many AdSense functions without ever leaving your site. For example, they can:

Create and manage AdSense accounts

Customize and implement AdSense for content ad units and link units, AdSense for search boxes, and referrals for products such as Google AdWords and Firefox

Generate URL and custom channel reports

Best of all, you get to make money with the AdSense API through the Revenue Sharing program. Advertisers pay your users and you when visitors click on your users' ads. Plus, you can earn Referral Payments when your users earn threshold amounts within their first 180 days after sign up.

Today, we're pleased to announce that the AdSense API is now open for all developers, with the release of our open development sandbox. This is a replica of the live service with some additional support to help you test and debug your applications. Once you implement the AdSense API in the development sandbox, we can go live with your implementation.

So now it's easier than ever to integrate AdSense into your website or online application. It took the folks over at less than a week. We’ve expanded our developer’s guide and added more sample code to make seamless integration even easier.

Were you ready to start developing yesterday? Check out our Getting Started Guide and our FAQ. You’ll also find that the AdSense API Developer Forum is a great place to discuss the API and get answers to common questions.

To learn more about the AdSense API and how it can make your users happier while increasing your income, surf over to the AdSense API site.

New terms of service and AdSense support team

New terms of service and AdSense support team
have now clarified all of these issues.

Question 1) Does Google allow other ads to run
on the same page as AdSense Ads?

Answer 1) The official word is a qualified "yes".

You may not run ads that are designed to resemble
AdSense ads. For example, Yahoo! Publisher Network
ads look very similar to AdSense ads. While you
can run YPN on your site, they may not appear on
the same PAGES as AdSense ads.

However, contextual ads like those provided by
Kontera, Intellitxt, Amazon and Chitika ARE allowed
on the same pages as your AdSense ads!

While not the exact answer we were hoping for,
this does clarify for us and opens many new
options for publishers wishing to use others
advertisements on their pages.

Question 2) Google's recent "images next to ads"
policy is confusing. Could you please clarify so
all publishers know what is and what is not allowed?

Answer 2) Google prefers that publishers avoid images
that are lined up directly next to the ads so that
it appears each ad is associated with an image. If
the dimensions of the image are completely different
than the dimensions of the ads, that's okay.

But if it appears to the user that the image is at
all associated with the ads, that would be in violation
of AdSense terms of service.

The general idea is Google does not want visitors
clicking on ads because they have been deceived in
believing the image is associated with the ad.

That leaves a lot of room for creative design, and
it also means that AdSense graphic backgrounds and
visual frames are within terms of service.

Factors That Affects Your Ranking in Google blog search

Factors That Improve Your Ranking in Google blog search

1)The popularity of the blog

2)How many RSS unique subscriptions there are to the blog,

3)Links from blog directories,

4)Number of blog directories/ search engines pinged per post:

5)How often people click on a link to the post in search results,

6)How many blogrolls, and “high quality” blogrolls the blog is in,
If the blog offers visitors the chance to tag posts and whether people are tagging them,

7)References to the blog by sources other than blogs, (Pagerank, and; Others).
Emails or chat transcripts containing the blog URL,

8)Improve inlinks to your blog.(Find websites that may be relevant to your website and approach the webmaster of these sites for a link exchange)

Factors that may trouble your blog rank

1)If new posts appear in short bursts or at predictable intervals.(Googlebot assumes this as an automated change.If you have thousands of content pages that suddenly appear on your website, this tells Google that you are more than likely to be aspammer.Remember real content does not appear this quickly.However, having thousands of pages that appears in a more realistic, humanly-possibly duration gives your site much more relevance than a site with fewer pages but containing the same keywords)

2)Posts should not be of the same size, or roughly the same size,

3)If the content of the posts doesn’t match the content of feeds from the posts, or if the content includes a lot of spam related keywords,if a lot of content is duplicated in multiple posts from a blog,

4)Link distribution of the blog,

5)If posts primarily link to one page or site.

6)Excessive use of ads.

Can you stop Adsense Click Fraud ????

If you are new to the click fraud scene, here is an example:

1. Scumbag puts Google Adsense ads on his website.

2. The scumbag then proceeds to cheat Google Adsense by creating false clickthroughs and impressions, in return earning him a pretty nice profit, because he isn't even working on his website, just generating false traffic.

WOW! What kind of pay per click company would admit that they DO NOT have click fraud under control? I wonder what would happen to their business immediately following that statement.

Estimates say that nearly 20% of all clicks for Adsense are illegitimate. In my honest opinion I believe this number to be around 30-35% from some of the things I have seen.

Alrite, now the big question, how are they doing it?

There are a number of ways that people are cheating, including the 'click groups' from India that click on your ads for you and create big pay checks as long as you pay them their $0.50 an hour so they can buy bread for their family.

But I'm going to show you the technical way that Google Adsense is cheated, not poor people clicking ads. I'm talking about extremely smart programmers that create hitbots to cheat Adsense. And, NO, I'm not talking about that piece of garbage 'CACA' or Clicking Agent that you find on Google. I am talking about PRIVATE programs and scripts that are only used by private groups.

How do these scripts get away undetected you ask?

Simple, let's actually take a look at Google's click fraud protection (This is what I have summed up, I seriously don't believe they have anything other protection because people are still cheating using these methods as you read this article.)

If you actually take a look at Google's Adsense code when it is on your webpage you will find the URL that is used to retrieve ads. (Right-Clck your ad Iframe and click 'View Page Information' or something similar.)

Here is an example of the URL that you will find:

Now let's decode this up a little bit, shall we?

client=ca-pub-2521202633232871 - Your client code, this tells Google who to assign the click-through money to.

dt=1124847235453 - Javascript, if you use the command google_date = new Date(); document.write(google_date.getTime()) --- Which generates 1124847235453.

This shows you the number of milliseconds since midnite January 1, 1970. This is what seems to be Google's biggest automated proxy clicker fraud prevention. Doesn't seem too hard to generate with 2 lines of code now does it?

lmt=1124631699 - The last time your webpage was updated. LMT stands for Last Modified Time, pretty easy Javascript to generate this one too - document.write(document.lastModified); --- Which generates 1124631699.

(Notice I'm skipping a bunch, that's because they are just showing the type of ad, colors, and size that you are using.)

cc=59 - Seems to be some random number based on the screen width, height, and color scheme. I've seen this number go from 20 all the way up to 400. I'm sure they don't use this to reliably track click fraud.

u_h=768 - Height of your screen settings.

u_w=1024 - Width of your screen settings.

u_ah=738 - Your available screen height.

u_aw=1024 - Your available screen width.

u_cd=32 - Color scheme on windows, e.g. 32-bit.

u_tz=-240 - Your monitor refresh rate or something else that isn't important, I've never seen it not -240.

u_java=true - Just seeing if you have java enabled.

There are some other variables that are sometimes in the URL such as 'u_his=' this means how many pages you have visited since you started up your browser. There's also some MIME type checks and how many plugins you have installed, but these variables come up very rarely. I think they are only meant for Netscape/Firefox browsers.

Now that we have 'decoded' the supposed unbeatable Google Adsense code, what do you think about click fraud? You still think it is rare?

After randomizing all the data and sending an automated query to their Adsense URL, all the scumbag has to do is parse out all of Google's click URL's and click one of them, giving him a click through. This can all be easily faked with even a Visual Basic program. A newbie programmer could in-fact cheat Google Adsense without much knowledge.

Alrite you say, they beat the javascript code detection but doesn't Google use cookies so they can't do this?

No, Google does not use cookies for Adsense.

Well what about IP-tracking? Someone can't have that many proxies!

There are click groups that leave these programs running on their computer. They each randomly click each other's URL's automatically. The person running the program doesn't even have to do anything, but he is still contributing to the success of their group and himself.

Does that sound too far-fetched? I am telling you that there are click groups that do this now and have been since the old Linkshare PPC days in 1999. Yes, if you were an advertiser on Linkshare back around 1999-2002, you got RAPED.

And that isn't all. I have read on the internet that there is currently over 100,000 people infected in the United States alone with trojan proxy servers. These proxy servers run on random ports so that Google can't just do a simple port 8080 or 80 check on it to see if it's a proxy. The majority of these proxy servers are used for credit card fraud, but a lot of them are also used to cheat Google Adsense and other pay per click programs. These proxies are at-home users that look like normal dial-up, cable, and dsl users from all across the world, but mainly United States. There is NO WAY to prove that they are a proxy.

Random User-Agent strings is another tactic that is often used by click fraudsters. This makes Google think that a lot of different browsers are clicking the links, just keeping them further from finding out the truth.

On a side note, you may be thinking that the new Yahoo! pay per click program may be the way to go. I checked into their protection and guess what? They are only using ONE of Google's protections and that is the Javascript GetTime. They are still in Beta though and this may change, but who knows?

To the cheaters: The benefits of cheating are short. Eventually you will be caught for what you are doing and maybe even sued by Google. There is a ton of money to be made legally with Adsense and I suggest that you stop cheating. Who am I to tell you to stop? I use to be one of you! Back when I was 13-14 I was making programs like the ones you guys are using now. You guys probably used one of my programs at one time. I am happy to say that those days of mine are all in the past now, and I am making a good amount of money LEGALLY with Adsense and other affiliate programs. Work hard guys and you will reap the benefits 100 times what you make cheating.

To the advertisers: You people that use Google Adwords now see that it is actually not very hard to cheat you out of your money, so be careful and MAKE SURE that you use a click fraud protection script such as ClickDefense. To lower most of your click fraud, just don't put your ads in the Content Network, only stay on Google's sponsored search results. Only Google gets paid when someone clicks the search results sponsored ads and nobody wants to cheat to make Google anymore money do they? Check the stock, it's currently at 279.58 a share.

To summarize my article I just want to state that no one should use this information for cheating Adsense and I am not responsible for your actions if you choose to do so. You will be caught because Google will evolve and get smarter, eventually.

Do you know duplicate content can hurt your Google rankings ????

Duplicate content is a problem that worries many webmasters.But you can deal with this problem if you follow some tips which is mentioned below..

Rumor has it that duplicate content can hurt your Google rankings and that web pages that copy your web site content can harm your rankings.

For that reason, Google recently made an official statement about duplicate content.

What is duplicate content and what is not duplicate content?

Duplicate content are substantive blocks of contents within the same domain or across different domains that are identical or very similar.

Google mentions several things that can lead to duplicate content:

"Forums that generate both regular and stripped-down mobile-targeted pages, store items shown (and -- worse yet -- linked) via multiple distinct URLs, and so on. In some cases, content is duplicated across domains in an attempt to manipulate search engine rankings or garner more traffic via popular or long-tail queries."

If the same article is available in multiple languages (for example English and Spanish) then Google doesn't view that as duplicate content. Occasional snippets such as quotes also won't be flagged as duplicate content.

What does Google do if it finds duplicate content?

Google tries to filter duplicate content from the search results. The reason for that is that Google wants to present a diverse cross-section of unique content in the search results.

"During our crawling and when serving search results, we try hard to index and show pages with distinct information. This filtering means, for instance, that if your site has articles in 'regular' and 'printer' versions and neither set is blocked in robots.txt or via a noindex meta tag, we'll choose one version to list.

In the rare cases in which we perceive that duplicate content may be shown with intent to manipulate our rankings and deceive our users, we'll also make appropriate adjustments in the indexing and ranking of the sites involved.

However, we prefer to focus on filtering rather than ranking adjustments ... so in the vast majority of cases, the worst thing that'll befall webmasters is to see the "less desired" version of a page shown in our index."

That simply means that Google will pick one of the web pages if it finds more than one page with the same content.

How can you avoid duplicate content problems with your web site?

Tell search engines which pages they should index: If the printer friendly versions should not be indexed, block them in your robots.txt file.

Use 301 redirections: If you restructured your web site, use permanent 301 redirections to redirect users and search engine spiders.

Always use the same links to link to a page on your site: Don't link to /page, /page/ and /page/index.htm if the URLs always display the same web page.

Use top level domains to handle language specific content: If you have German pages, use a .de domain for these pages.

Use the preferred domain feature of Google's webmaster tools: Google allows you to choose if you prefer the www version or the non-www version of your URLs.

Syndicate carefully: Make sure that other web sites link back to your site if they use your content.

Avoid boilerplate repetition and publishing stubs: If possible, don't include the same lengthy copyright text on the bottom of every page. Better use a short version with a link to the full version. If you have category pages without any content, don't publish them.

Understand your content management system (CMS): If you use a content management system, make sure that it doesn't publish the same content in multiple formats.
Duplicate content can lead to problems with search engines. For that reason, follow the tips above so that search engines have as few problems as possible with your site. If you find a web site that copies your original content, you can file a DMCO request.
If you want to make sure that your web pages get high rankings on search engines, you should make it as easy as possible for search engines to parse your pages. Use IBP's Top 10 Optimizer to create your web pages as search engine friendly as possible.
