Just found out a trick to increase CPM for AdSense

    Hi all DP fellows,
    SEMrush
    I just found out something very interesting and useful about AdSense, might not be totally legal though.

    This trick allows you to increase your eCPM. As you all know, there is a "publisher id" that Google AdSense provides you. As some of you might have experienced before, once you delete the publisher id, the ads will keep being shown on the site, but you will be publishing them for no cost by Google's side. So you will be publishing freely. I will tell you something that won't bother you to leave your AdSense code without a publisher id for 4-5 days.

    I did a test about this, and the result was great. I removed the publisher id. The first 2-3 days, AdSense spider almost never left my site (the same site we're talking about here, before with publisher id, and after without publisher id). The following 9 days, the spider never came to the site though. But guess what this test taught me? After I removed my publisher id for 2-3 days, when I put my publisher code again my eCPM was as high as $1,2. I was getting $1,2 per click and the ads shown were high paying ones instead of those crappy ones. That was an amazing experience for me.

    As a result, once your earnings start to decrease, remove your publisher id for a few days, and put it back later again. Or you can just do this periodically to keep your eCPM high. You will earn more than you lose for sure!

    PS. The site I used in this test was about "women" and had been considered as trash before I made this research. The test had been applied on 2 different accounts, and both tests were positive.

    You don't modify the adsense code. You are just replacing your publisher id with xxxxxxx... or leave it blank

    Sounds logic that they show higher paying ads on sites where they don't have to share their income with someone who puts his adsense-id on. definitively worth a try.

    removing the publisher i.d. is altering the google code... better check with adsense support before doing it.

    it would probably be smarter to simply swap the adsense ad blocks for another advertiser, so that you are making some kind of money during the downtime.

    Try not to get banned. Google is notorious for banning people for any excuse.

    Why? They earn 100% of the money during the time without the id.
    Doesn't digitalpoint also "alter" the adsense code by inserting different publisher-Ids?

    Sailing pretty close to the wind on that one -- check with G and I'll give odds that they don't like it.

    Yeah, but they rank pretty high so they can get away with more.

    I think it is too much of on the line to call. Is it worth the risk? I guess if you don't care about being banned then I say try anything.JMO

    What would suck if it seemed to work and you built your account up and they banned you right before payout. Seen that happen before. I would be careful.

    I will try this by puting etology ads on the page for few days. Can I still keep the google search box if I put away adsens and put etology on the site?

    I am not sure this is what leet was talking about. He was saying keep the ads up with no pub. # so Google thinks they are getting free ads, I can't imagine removing them all together and putting them back in a few days will do the same thing.

    Leave it blank, don't remove the full line.

    You shouldn't remove the ads from the site. You will just leave publisher id line blank.

    I personally think the G wouldn't even track this as they don't track based on domains, but publisher ids. When you leave your publisher id blank, how will they track the action taken?
