Black Hat ASO

First there was Google. Hey, we’ve created a new search engine, the more backlinks your site has the more visits you get. Go get backlinks! Black hat seo was born. Later they killed it. Want to reach SERP top? Go buy adwords.

Then there was Facebook. Hey, we’ve created a new social engine, the more likes your page has the more visits you get. Go get likes! Linkbaiting and clickjacking was born. Later they killed it. Want to reach EDGE top? Go buy boost ads.

Now we have apps. I have yet to build my first app, but I have already started reading and learning on how to assemble and market apps. Also seems like the first black hat community is born. A good old friend of mine has invited me to this new forum on ASO, App Store Optimization. Of course it had to be Black Hat. It’s called Black Hat ASO.

Adsense Quality Rating

Posted by k | Posted in Adsense, Make Money | Posted on 18-08-2011

Got one of my sites banned, first Adsense not showing, then deindexed. It was responsible for only about 10% of my total Adsense revenue. No other sites got any penalty.

From that day on, my Adsense revenue dropped 70%. NOT 10%, as expected, but around 70%!

Reason? My “Adsense Quality Rating” plummet. Its the second time this happens and the first time it took me more than a year to get a good quality rating back. But I could easily noticed when my good rating was back: revenue suddenly jumped 200% without any change in traffic.

Thank God, Adsense is currently only a small slice of my income pie.
