Microsoft’s $399 Surface Go aims to stand out from iPads or Chromebooks

Microsoft’s new Surface Go is finally official after months of rumors and leaks. It’s an inexpensive 10-inch tablet designed to be a smaller and less powerful version of the Surface Pro. While the exterior of the Surface Go makes it look like a baby Surface Pro, Microsoft has changed a lot inside. The base model is priced at $399, but it only ships with 4GB of RAM, 64GB of slower eMMC storage, and a less powerful Intel Pentium Gold processor. Prices quickly jump to over $600 after adding the all important Type Cover, more RAM, a faster SSD, and other Surface add-ons. With these specs and price points in mind, who exactly is the Surface Go for?

Microsoft isn’t targeting its Surface Go at any particular customer from what I can tell. It’s not an iPad killer, it’s not going directly after Chromebooks, and it’s not really challenging $400 Windows laptops. While the Surface Laptop launched at an education event alongside Windows 10 S, the Surface Go appears to be targeted far more broadly across education, regular consumers, and even commercial usage. It’s clearly designed to be a cheaper and more portable Surface that lowers the barrier of entry for those put off by the price of a Surface Pro and its more capable specifications. It’s also aiming to be more than an iPad or a Chromebook.

3 ways WordPress is better than blogspot blog

1. Blog ownership is limited
On of the reasons people discourage others from using blogspot is that they believe or rather your access to your BlogSpot blog could be turned off at any moment. So, they believe that  investing your time and energy into creating some kind of income through such platform is a waste of time and does not worth it.

2. Traffic is lower - They also believe using blogspot will limit the volume of traffic you can generate. It is generally believed that a hosted blog like that hosted on wordpress can generate tons of traffic compared to blogspot. For example, if someone sees a BlogSpot blog in the search results, they believe it screams ‘amateur’, ‘hobbyist’, ‘non-authoritative’, etc.
So they’re not clicked on as much as other results and slip down the rankings.
Same if you’re trying to promote the blog elsewhere, which presumably you’ll want to do if you want to earn money from it.
In brief, it’s hard for anyone to take you seriously, if you don’t take yourself seriously in terms of putting the blog on your own domain.
3. Means of earning on  BlogSpot blog is limited - 
Another point of view of those that supported hosting your blog on wordpress is that they believe Google AdSense is not only surest means to earn from blogspot. They believe you’ll find your ability to make money in other ways severely hampered by being on BlogSpot.
So, if you’re serious about earning money from blogging (rather than taking the hard route of trying to earn money from BlogSpot), then start with the proper foundation.
It takes very little investment to get your own domain, some basic hosting, and a basic Wordpress blog.

How To Place Adsense Auto Ads Code On Blogger & WordPress
 
It has been officially unveiled by Google that they have had a new ad system called Adsense Auto Ads. It is a system that uses machine learning to not only determine the types of ads people see on blogs, but how they’re placed. The AI technology will decide how many ads are appropriate for a page and where to put them.
 
 Adsense Auto Ads will make ads placement easy for you by making a smart placement and monetization decisions on your behalf. What you have to do as a publisher is just to place one piece of code just once to all of your pages, and  Google will be placing the ads automatically for you where they think fit.
 
When you enable and place the Auto ads code on your blog, the next thing is for auto ads to be showing by analyzing your pages, finding potential ad placements, and showing new ads when they’re likely to perform well and provide a good user experience.
 
Features of Adsense Auto Ads:
 
1. Optimization: Using machine learning, Auto ads show ads only when they are likely to perform well and provide a good user experience.
 
2. Revenue increment: Auto ads will identify any available ad space and place new ads there, potentially increasing your revenue.
3. Confinient: With Auto ads you only need to place the ad code on your pages once. When you’re ready to use new features and ad formats, simply turn them on and off with the flick of a switch — there’s no need to change the code again.
 
Procedure To Activate & Place Adsense Auto Ads
 
1. Sign in to your AdSense account.

8 practices that means you are encouraging clicks on your adsense

 

Google adsense is one of the top ways bloggers make money online. However, Google do ban publishers that do not adhere to their policies. One of such policies is that publishers should not encourage visitors to their site to click on the ads. Publishers may not ask others to click their ads or neither should they use deceptive implementation methods to obtain clicks.
This means Google adsense publishers should not offer compensation to users for viewing ads or performing searches. They should not place images next to individual ads.

The following are the list of things you must not do so that Google adsense team will not see you as someone encouraging people to click on your adsense ads.
According to Google adsense team, publishers should not:
1. Compensate users for viewing ads or performing searches, or promise compensation to a third party for such behavior.
2. Encourage users to click the Google ads using phrases such as "click the ads", "support us", "visit these links" or other similar language.
3. Direct user attention to the ads using arrows or other graphical gimmicks.
4. Place misleading images alongside individual ads.
5. Place ads in a floating box script.
6. Format ads so that they become indistinguishable from other content on that page.
7. Format site content so that it is difficult to distinguish it from ads.
8. Place misleading labels above Google ad units. For instance, ads may be labelled "Sponsored Links" or "Advertisements", but not "Favorite Sites" or "Today's Top Offers".

Can i use google adsense on blog with only videos

According to my research, Google adsense team do not like their ads to be showing on sites that have only videos. Meaning that your adsense will be ban if you shows adsense on sites with only videos. 

The only place you can monetize your videos with adsense is Youtube. If you put adsense on video only site, adsense to the site will eventually be di as it has been reported that Google hate sites that contain no unique content such as pure video blogs. To put adsense on video only site and avoid adsense ban, make sure you have sufficient written content on any page or post that contains the adsense ads.
