You can add unique images and links to your content. Also research the topic extensively if you want to write something. And make sure it is not copied content.
Choose High Quality keywords:
Make sure you use long tail keywords in your blog post that lead to better conversions and help you generate more revenue. This way you will increase the chances of getting more traffic and increasing your conversion rate. Choose atleast 3-4 keywords in one streach.
It iis very important to add advertisements to the middle of blog post which attracts the reader’s attention and can lead to more clicks and hence more revenue.
You can also optimize ads by placing them on the pages with more traffic so that you can get more fromm the ads.
Traffic coming from the US , UK or Canada would be high paying than the traffic coming from Developing counties lie India , Nepal, Bhutan ,etc. So target these regions only when you want to promote your content on social media networks, etc.
Adsense is not suitable for websites that only get visitors in a few hundred every day. You will need traffic of at least 5-10k a day to earn a decent living from your blog posts.
