Social Triggers recently designed the following infographic to help dissect the perfect blog post. In general, it’s the ideal article layout if you’re just getting started blogging or are a seasoned vet looking to create some consistency on your blog. But one thing I felt this infographic was lacking was an option for sites like this, Brand.Build.Sell. which monetizes content using Google Adsense.
Google Adsense essentially turns your blog into a mobile billboard for other companies to advertise their product or service. There are several different types of ads you can choose from including text, graphic, multimedia or a combination with varying sizes.
The original graphic from Social Triggers is below.
So how does Adsense fit into this blog article blueprint?
Well, in my opinion, one of the best locations for a block of Adsense code (text, multimedia or graphic) is position #3 – Key Insights. Typically the most profitable ads (for this website) have been the 250×250 and 300×250 text ad blocks.
So here are the changes I would make to this infographic in regards to Adsense.
