Make More Money with Adsense Using Competitive Ad Filter

by Sushant Risodkar · 23 comments

Do you know why many of times you get just 1-10 cents for the clicks on your blog?

One of the main reason is because your ad boxes are showing MFA(Made For Adsense) ads. These MFA sites have lots of crappy content or in some cases no content at all, yes seriously.

Any content if present would be describing an affiliate program or product with lots of excerpts of interviews and recommendations from their so called users who have benefited after using their products. Or in some cases you would only see a search box , 3 blocks of Google ads, 3 text link ads with welcome to my site logo in the middle.

Now what can you do in such sitution so that ads don’t appearn on your blog?

The answer would be using ‘Cometitive Ad Filter’ feature of Google Adsense and banning such sites which pay less from your site/blog.

Now how to get the list of such sites which pays penny from their account?

For this I would suggest a great site which gives out a list of MFA sites which you can paste directly into your Ad Filter.It’s name is AdsBlacklist.

So what is it actually?

Well, AdsBlackList is one of the unique project designed to enable you to dramatically reduce the amount of MFA (made for ads) and LCPC (low cost per click) sites which appear through the use of PPC systems such as Google Adsense™, Yahoo Publisher Network™ and Chitika eMiniMalls™.

“Wow that’s great you can also use it on Yahoo and Chitika if you are a member of it.”

How to use it?

  1. To use Adsblacklist; just get registered there; Go to My Account; Click on Add New Domain and enter your domain details.
  2. One’s the submission of your domain is done; Go to Generate Filter List; Drag any domain which you have added from the list in empty Box at he right side.
  3. Tick on MFA and LCPC and click on Submit.
  4. You will get the list which you just have to paste into your Competitive ad filter.

In google; you can just add 200 such sites in the ads filter which is their maximum limit which I think they should really increase it looking at the number of MFA sites on the web.

I think by using the Competitive Ad Filter to block out the major MFA Arbitragers, you should see a very nice increase in your Google  adsense earnings.

How do you like this feature? Have you started using it?

I will try to use this feature to block low prices ads on my websites. But according to Google, they only post the highest paying ads on a certain ad block by choosing from all the bidding advertisers. If that is the case, then there will be no improvement in the earnings.

I am using the ad filters option to remove the non-related ads from my websites.
