Google Page Rank Update, November 2011

On the 7th-8th November, 2011, Google was updating the Page Ranks. In my blog network, most of my websites going up in page rank. This is indeed a good news, although most of them up by only one point.

The page rank update came after Google update their Caffaine search algoritham which impacts 35% of the search results. Anyway, both are not related.

For those who are new to page rank, it is a metric between 0-10. 10 is the best while 0 is the lowest. The rank depends on many factors, mostly on-site SEO and backlinks to your website.

Google AdSense, Highest Paying Country in 2011

Goggle AdSense is the best-performing Ad Network that I joined. No other network came closer. However, bear in mind that Goggle AdSense operates by keyword bidding & the country visitor coming from. These two important factors, determine how much you can earn through your website.

In this post, I would like to discuss regarding the best paying country in Google AdSense network.

Since the end of March 2011, publishers allow to see the AdSense reports based on countries. I made a compilation of these data & tabulated in the table below to show the best paying country.

These data are for the period of 22nd March to 24th October 2011, which is slightly more than six months. I remove the country that I received less than 3,000 visitors for the same duration to ensure the data are more representable.

Basically, the countries are ranked based on Revenue per Thousand (“RPM”) with the highest RPM at the first position while the lowest RPM at the last position. This data is real data from my websites. Your data may be slightly different, but I think generally it should be similar.

I hope these data will be useful, to increase your AdSense earnings by focusing on highest paying countries.
