I have noticed that my Adsense earnings increased as my number of page views increased. Today, I will give you a very short tip of how to increase the number of pageviews from the images in your blog posts. I know a lot already knew about this, but I’m just assuming that somebody here in the blogosphere doesn’t know about this 1 image to 1 page view increase technique.
If you’ve noticed my “The Forbidden Kingdom” post, you’ll see that I have thumbnails of character posters of the said movie. If you click a specific thumbnail, the link will direct you to a new page containing the full size of the image, thus giving you a unique pageview for that page. If you have a lot of images, for instance 20 thumbnail images in one post, and all of those images are going to be clicked by a unique visitor, then you’ll have twenty unique pageviews from one post. Now that’s a lot of pageviews from a single post that you have which include the pages that are linked to it.
So how will this increase your earnings? By placing Adsense on your page template, you’ll have an Ad displayed for each page which will increase your Adsense hit, at the same time increase your CTR, because there are chances that your ads displayed on the page where the full size image was can be clicked by a unique visitor. A unique ad will be displayed based on your page title and some text from the page, that’s why if the reader is interested of the image, and Adsense displayed a related advertisement for that specific image, then you’ll have more than 50% chance of your ads getting clicked. That’s why this method will increase your earnings.
A Snapshot of my MyBlogLog’s most clicked link:
Adsense increase for the past 5 days:
As you can see, my Adsense ads are the most clicked links in my blog, because of this method that I have applied for the past 4 days in some of my old blog posts. I’m just playing around with it if it will increase my pageviews and earnings.
You can compare this by using the traditional method of linking an image to your post. That old method will waste a lot of pageviews based on my experience. A lot of users intend to click a specific image in your post to view the full size of it. They click it for 2 main reasons. The image in your post was not that clear to them, that’s why they are expecting for it to be zoomed in once they click it. The other reason was they just want to click the image because they are curious where is the image linked, or what will happen if they click the image. Now that’s 3 reasons technically. Hehehe.
I have 2 examples below of displaying your image in a smart way (which will increase your Adsense earings) and in a lazy way ( which will waste a unique click from your image)

The Lazy Way of Displaying an Image withing your post
I hope you have learned something new today of how to take advantage of those linked images. That’s all for now. Hurray!
