Google Keyword Tool Now Shows Search Volume Data

If you’ve ever used Google Keyword Tool, you know they always represented search volume for a keyword by a rating from 1 (Low search volume) to 5 (High search volume).

Now, when you use the Keyword Tool to search for relevant keywords to include in your keyword list, you’ll be able to see the approximate number of search queries matching your keywords that were performed on Google and the search network. These approximate numbers are intended to provide better insight into keywords’ monthly and average search volumes than previously provided by the tool.

YieldBuild To Maximize Your Adsense Revenue

If you are an Adsense publisher, you’ve certainly read a lot about the importance of testing your Adsense blocks placement, colors and size to improve the ad’s CTR.

But the truth is, after a publisher has placed Adsense ads into the web page, the ads’ formatting and placement is seldom tested and altered to get more clicks. As a result, the ad’s true earning power is never realized.


YieldBuild is a new service that provides automatic yield management for Google AdSense, Yahoo! Publisher Network (YPN) and eBay AdContext. Their software algorithmically changes ads format and place to analyze what can be done to maximize text ad revenue.
