Welcome to the second part of ‘Paired for success’, a blog series dedicated to the stories of publishers and Certified Partners who have joined forces to get the most out of Google AdSense.    

When Dimitriy was getting ready for his move to Germany, he collected a range of learning materials about its language, culture and traditions. That’s why in 2010 he decided to share his knowledge with others and to set up De-online.ru, a portal with a wealth of useful information about all things German. Since the early days, Google AdSense has been part of De-online.ru growth.

De-online.ru is managed by a small team. It was this lack of in-house resources that led Dimitriy to approach YoulaMedia, an advertising agency and Google AdSense Certified Partner based in Saint Petersburg, Russia.

YoulaMedia quickly tackled Dimitriy’s challenge: increase De-Online.ru advertising earnings without impairing their users’ experience. This partnership exceeded Dimitriy’s expectations, and he can now invest more time in creating interesting, high-quality content.

A few months ago we introduced the Google AdSense Certified Partner Program to connect publishers with recognized consultants who can help them make the most of their AdSense accounts. Since then, hundreds of publishers had their AdSense accounts set up, optimized and managed by these accredited businesses, freeing up their time to focus on creating great content. Over the next weeks, we’ll share with you some of these stories of shared success.

NetDoktor.de is a leading German health portal offering medical information explained in layman’s terms about diseases, symptoms, research and medications. They started using Google AdSense five years ago, but soon realised that they lacked the in-house expertise to make the best use of it.

It was then that they decided to approach Click Performance Group, a Munich-based Google AdSense Certified Partner specializing in AdSense consulting. The partnership soon led to positive results, boosting NetDoktor.de’s revenue by 150% through account optimization and ongoing experiments.

NetDoktor.de can now focus on editorial tasks and their service offering, knowing that the management of their AdSense account is in good hands with a Google AdSense Certified Partner.

As smartphone and tablet usage continues to grow, many publishers consider exploring the growing app space. According to Gartner, more than 130 billion apps will be downloaded onto phones and tablets by the end of 2014 and most of them will be free to users*. At the same time, revenue from apps is expected to grow by over 200% in the next 4 years**. We’re moving away from a paid apps model to an era of free apps with incremental payments.
