  • AdSense Global Spotlight: Capture opportunities in Indonesia

    Baca dalam Bahasa Indonesia di bawah.

    More and more users from all over the world are gaining access to information online. For current AdSense publishers, this presents an opportunity to grow your audience globally. This new Global Spotlight series can help educate, inspire, and provide you with insights into how you can grow your business and share your content in emerging markets.

    Today we’d like to bring you to Indonesia, an archipelago country of 17,000 islands and home to 260 million people. Indonesia is experiencing rapid internet penetration growth with approximately 100 million internet users[1] and an expected 37% new internet user growth through 2020[2]. Indonesian online ad revenue is also expected to grow aggressively - with over 40% annual growth in digital ad spend expected over the next few years[3].

    Jeanny Haliman is a Strategic Partner Manager on the AdSense team with deep roots in Indonesia. She helps publishers in her home country of Indonesia grow their businesses by accelerating their success using AdSense.

    “My mission is to empower my partners to pursue their passion and gain financial independence by creating content that they love.”
    Here are Jeanny’s top three tips for publishers who are looking to expand into or start their business in Indonesia.

    1. Optimize your site for mobile to meet the needs of Indonesian users
    Indonesia is a mobile-first market where 65% of Indonesians access the internet via their smartphones more often than a desktop or tablet and urban Indonesians spend three times more of their daily online time with their smartphone rather than a desktop[4]. It’s extremely important to optimize your sites user experience and ad strategy for the large number of Indonesian users accessing content via smartphones.

    Here are two resources to help you optimize your content for mobile users:
    • Download the #AdSenseGuide to Mobile Web Success to learn best practices on how to make the most of every mobile opportunity.
    • Use Page-level ads. Page-level ads are a family of ad formats that offer a new and innovative way to help you earn money from your mobile content. They’re designed to automatically show the right mobile ad format at the right time - potentially increasing your earnings without interfering with your users’ mobile experience. Implementing Page-level ads is easy. Check out this 2-minutes tutorial that will walk you through the process. 

    2. Audience engagement is key to increasing your presence in Indonesia
    Engaging your audience is all about telling the story that users are looking for, in a unique and creative way. As publishers, it’s your role to make it easy for users to consume content. Easy to consume content creates more chances to engage with an audience, ultimately yielding greater ad impressions.

    Here are two resources Jeanny shares with publishers that want to engage with an audience:
    • Download the #AdSenseGuide to Audience Engagement. This eBook is packed with tips to help make your content easy to consume. 
    • Use the free AdSense content recommendation tool, Matched content, to encourage your site visitors to consume more of your content. Place the Matched content unit at the bottom of your articles and it will promote additional contextually relevant and personalized articles from your site. Check if your account is eligible for Matched content here.

    3. Ensure that your site is policy-compliant
    Understanding AdSense Policy will help Indonesian publishers to build a healthy and sustainable business in the long-term. Here're some tips Jeanny usually gives to her publishers:

    • Understand the AdSense Program Policies.
    • Avoid accidental clicks on your own ads and notify us if there is invalid activity in your account
    • Check your AdSense-registered email regularly. If you receive a policy warning email, quickly fix your policy violations. If your ads get disabled, fix your policy violations and send an appeal via the form given on the email.

    Do you want to hear more from Jeanny about successfully monetizing your content in Indonesia? She regularly hosts live Hangout on Air sessions with her publishers to talk through best practices, ad placement tips, and ways to grow your business. Be sure to register your interest to receive updates on the next session. Until then, you can watch a recording of a recent Hangout on Air she hosted about Policy and Mobile Web Optimization.

  • The secret to share-worthy content

    People love to share things with their friends, family, and colleagues. Presenting your users with relevant and unique content is the best way to encourage sharing and give you a competitive advantage. Content that is underscored by emotion, in particular, can help you strengthen your brand’s presence.

    Here are some tips to help you get into the minds, and hearts, of your audience:

    1. Be relatable

    Taking the time to research what your visitors are interested in is the first step to creating shareable content. Diversify to cover multiple facets of your audience’s interests by including work, lifestyle and social topics to keep things fresh and engaging. Contextualizing your stories also increases the chances of your audience relating to and wanting to share your site.

    2. Know what’s trending

    Staying up-to-the-minute can require a lot of time and research. Luckily, online tools such as Google Trends can help you identify what’s important to your audience as well as offer helpful insights about people in specific regions you are trying to target. Being a thought leader means not only sharing up-to-the-minute industry news with your audience, but also offering insightful observations and predictions of what this may mean down the road. A trusted source is a followed source.

    3. Increase your content’s shelf life

    While timely articles are great for generating instant buzz, having content that maintains its importance over time yields higher traffic rate overall. Evergreen content is information that stays relevant no matter when it is consumed. Make sure to interlace trendier content with evergreen pieces every so often. 

    To learn more about familiarizing your audience with your brand, check out the AdSense Guide to Audience Engagement.
