Google Adsense Page Positioning

Correct positioning of your Google adsense ads can make or break your success with the Google adsense program. Why is this true? Some studies suggest that eye positioning on website gravitate to particular sections of web pages. And if you don’t have the necessary ads in these positions you will not get the clicks.

I talked to countless people that have great traffic, some with 300 to 1000 new visitors a day that say that they only make approx. at max $10 to $20 dollars a month on the adsense program. What a shame. But when I look at their websites the ads are either buried in wording that no one usually pays attention to or the ads are located in positions that just don’t call any attention to their presence.

So were the best locations for you Google adsense ads. Well, I have found the number one best place for the ads are near or in proximity to your main menu. Why near your main menu. Because you know that visitors eyes will and always look for the menu structure of your website. So the common places for placement should be to the top right, the very top under your menu, or the top left. These are the most common locations for you main menu.

But what about the color scheme of the Google adsense ads? Yes, color is very important. You have to make the ads looks as seamless as possible. Here is an example on one of my website http://www.pottery-barn-outlet.com. Here I decided to position the ads at the very top right under my main menu. In direct eye contact. Also, remove the borders; just these two changes will increase your adsense proceeds one hundred percent.

By using these tactics I was able to increase my adsense click through rate significantly depending on traffic level and people’s interest.

Take my advice and give it try. I believe you will see a change and hopefully make adsense a more pleasurable experience.

Sofa Slip Covers for the Perfect Look

Thinking of getting rid of that old sofa because the material is worn out or ripped? Consider putting a sofa slip cover over it first. Not only will you have a new looking sofa, but you’ll save a lot of money as well.

Sofa slip covers have come a long way from those days when grandma had the old plastic slipcovers over her furniture. You do remember that as a child right?

Today, stores such as the Pottery Barn and Surefit carry every type of cover for any piece of furniture imaginable.

For sofas, by far the most popular type of slipcover is the ready-made sofa slipcover. They are a one-piece cover that simply drapes over the sofa, couch or loveseat. They may also have elastic to help keep them fitting snug on your furniture.

Concerned about material or color choices? Don’t be. Sofa slipcovers are available in fabrics ranging from linen, denim, cotton, velvet, corduroy and a variety of others. You can’t help but find the fabric you like because they can be made from any material you want.

Color choices are endless as well. You’ll find solids as well as beautiful print patterns that can match up well with any season. For example, you may want a bright flowery pattern for Spring or a more subtle pastel look in the Fall. The choice is yours.

Sofa slip covers are designed to fit over any brand and size of sofa, sectional or loveseat. You simply tuck in the extra fabric between the back, seat and arm cushions.

If for some reason you have a size that doesn’t fit, you can always get a custom one made to fit.

It’s important to note that cleaning most slipcovers is as simple as tossing them into the washing machine. Just be sure to let them air dry and do not put them in the clothes dryer in order to avoid shrinkage.

So, if your favorite sofa is only suffering from worn out cushions or torn arm rests, don’t get rid of it. Get an inexpensive sofa slip cover and give it new life. You’ll be happy with the results.

Fitted Slipcovers - How They Can Help

If you are looking for a way to bring new life to your furniture, fitted slipcovers may be the ideal solution you’re looking for. These beautiful slipcovers are individually fitted to each piece so that they give it a unique and distinctive look. And with their low prices, slipcovers are affordable for any budget.

Slipcovers have become quite popular today for many reasons including the fact that they help to greatly extend the life of your expensive furniture. Let’s face it, a new sofa or sectional can easily run upwards of $1,000, but a new fitted slipcover can give it a whole new look for less than $100.

How do fitted slipcovers work? As an example, your sofa has the frame and three cushions. The fitted cover would fit snugly around the frame and each cushion would also have its own individually slipcover. In many cases it will be difficult to tell the difference between a new cover and a reupholster job. They fit that well.

What is the difference in a fitted slipcover and the more standard types of covers? A regular slipcover will fit much looser on your sofa, loveseat or sectional sofa. It may need to be tucked in from time to time. A fitted slipcover on the other hand will not. It looks just like your original upholstery.

Where can you find this type of slipcover? Although many of your finer retail stores such as Macy’s have slipcovers in stock, your best place to start your search is online. Websites like Surefit and the Pottery Barn both have extensive selections of every type of cover imaginable. They also offer some good discounts from time to time as well.

Slipcovers allow you to change your home decor for a fraction of the cost of buying new furnishings. You’ll find contemporary patterns and colors, modern, country and so many more.

Styles and patterns run from solids to bright flowery patterns and everything in between. You’ll also have a choice of materials ranging from cotton to silk among so many others.

I love the fact of how slipcovers are so easy to fit over my furniture, not to mention how I can instantly change the look to match the seasons of the year.

If you are looking for an option to reupholstering or buying new furniture, try fitted slipcovers and discover why it is a popular way of solving your particular needs.
