Google Adsense - Keywords with no Hex

Thanks to Malkie whose comment on my last post on Google Adsense, led me to his site and the discovery of Adsense keyword finder tools. You saved me some research time, Malkie.
I am going to tell you no more about them as I did not find these tools myself. Instead I will refer you to Malkie's post:

Finding Profitable Keyphrases for Adsense
... on his Welcome to Wallyworld site.

Some of you may be interested in Malkie's latest post which includes a video of Wanda Nara. (I thought I would do a little name dropping as part of my experiment on keywords on my adsense ads).

**What a silly place to put that sentence - many male readers - and some female - have probably hightailed it out of here by now.

Traffic blogging tip - Adnan, Blogtrepreneur, tells me I must not include so many outbound links in my posts as they take people away from my own blog.

Traffic blogging tip 2 - please do as Adnan suggests, don't do as I do.

Maybe I should not disclose where I find details of the blog tools I mention. I could quite easily have said here that I merely discovered two keyword tools and no one would be any wiser. I do not think it particularly fair that someone has taken the time and trouble to research without giving them credit for it. I spend many hours researching and I know I would not like others to take advantage of it.

What do you think? Am I right with my maybe strict blog ethics or silly for including so many outbound links and sending people away from my site (maybe never to return)?

I think if I can make my content interesting enough readers will return anyway and I will gain more - My reader levels are slowly rising and number of comments increasing - making me Sueblimely content.

**Some of you may be interested in Malkie's latest post which includes a video of Wanda Nara. (I thought I would do a little name dropping as part of my experiment on keywords on my adsense ads and wonder if that is one of the reasons Malkie did the post too?).

Anyone still here? In case you are, Wanda is an Argentinian model who is recently found fame for revealing more than clothes. I am not going to use the three letter word that rhymes with hex - the adsense ads that appear may make me blush - much like the spam emails that I have recently been receiving.

I am no prude but unsolicited emails which contain graphic images really offend me, especially the thought of children receiving them. I have turned off images showing by default and set up yet more word filters but need to do more research on the issue to more reliably get rid of this latest email nastiness. Any ideas would be very gratefully accepted.

Of course linking to your sources is the right thing to do!

Besides, there's a good chance you'll get a visit or two from the people you've linked to, and, looking at my meager stats, people don't always click on those outbound links, anyway.

But in the age of tabbed browsing, even when they do, they don't have to leave your site.

I wish people would forget about not trying to link outside. Isn't that what the web is all about. I am betting they want link to them but won't return the favour, which in my mind, worse. I link and even give a link to people that comment on the next post I do as a thank-you.

I have reviewed and thumbs up this post on StumbleUpon. Good stuff.

One downside of having too many links in some posts is that it could indicate you have not done enough research yourself and are relying on what others have done.

Another idea is to put links at the end of your post rather than sprinkled around on the basis that your readers will linger until they have read your whole post.

It is not always possible to do that though without removing them from their proper context.

Good on you for giving recognition to those that comment, goldcoaster. As classic blogger does not allow for nofollow to be removed from comments, I manually do a 'latest comments by' section at the bottom of my post page and thank you posts.

Stealing content without the courtesy of a backlink is just about the worst thing you can do in the world of blogging. We all write pages, borrow ideas, but if we are going to beat the big shots up there on that google platform in the sky we have to support one another. www.monetizationweekly.com is one spot that I borrow content from all the time. So I'll drop there address off here. Hat's off to monetization thank you for the content!

the concern has crossed my mind too of making people run away from your blog, but in the end, I have to give credit to people whose article might enhance my research or what I am talking about! Besides I agree with sam that they might leave your site to read what the other article is about but will return to you to see your take on it!

If you use other people's content or ideas then you must give them credit. It is just wrong not to do so from an ethical and legal standpoint as well as courtesy.

If you are researching a topic thoroughly then there will be more links, otherwise you are likely just rehashing what someone else said.

Linking for gaining readers and contacts is also valuable....

I am going to follow this up in a post or this could end up being the longest post in history.

Thank you for your input and you can be assured that I will thank you with a link too.
