As some of you already know, I spent a lot of time advising new AdSense publishers in Google's Adsense Support forum. Spend just five minutes in that forum, and you'll soon discover the number one reason why publishers lose their AdSense accounts is because of copied content. Instead of building a website or blog full of original blog content, publishers will copy and paste content from others onto their own.
But to qualify for and hold on to an AdSense account, a publisher must not, "create pages with many words but little or no authentic content," or apply for AdSense with a website that is an obvious "cookie-cutter site or template with no unique content." In other words, if you want to earn, you gotta have original blog content.
This section is designed to help those who have trouble generating original website content. It isn't always easy coming up with fresh new blog ideas -- especially since sometimes it seems as though all the good ideas have gone! You've got to remember there's always room for one more. Hopefully you'll find it here!
So the goal of your blog will be to document your progress through solving a problem. Blogs that solve a problem are the most visited blogs on the Internet. The blog will store 33 pages (or posts), and each page will address the following issues below:
Page 1: The Battle
Describe your battle with a specific problem. Begin with the first onset of the problem and progress to the state it's in now. Describe how this battle consumed your time, energy, and resources, and explain how the battle has affected you emotionally and physically. Compare this impact to those you know who don't suffer from the same problem. When finished, explain why you're creating this type of blog in the first place and why you think your readers will benefit.
Page 2: Past Efforts
List all the solutions you tried in the past, and then describe the results of each. Include the names and measures of all applications and then describe the results of each. If you avoided some proposed solutions, explain why.
Page 3: Suspected Triggers
List all the events suspected of triggering the problem. To confirm your suspicions, make a commitment to monitor and document your daily events for an entire month in an online calendar. Note the results of each potential trigger.
Page 4 - 32: Current Treatment
Describe the program you're using to solve the problem today in detail. Include the what, when, where, why, and how. Write about the program's application and warnings, and then describe what your next plan of action will be should the program prove to cause more problems than solutions.
Then as you did before, make a commitment to monitor and document the process for an entire month. Only this time, include the results of the program in the calendar created above. Add photos or videos to create a visual, progressive timeline. The content of each calendar page could contain something like this:
Be honest and comment on your commitment to your program. And include events that stood in your way of progress each day.
Don't forget to supplement your blog with interactive tools. You could:
Page 33: The Conclusion
At the end of your program, describe the final result, and then post questions that continue to be unanswered. Why did or why didn't the program work? What part of your commitment played a role? Will you try the same program again? If not, why? What part of the program is still unclear? What further work, research or experimentation could be done?
