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.

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.

Content is king

Author: InsideAdSense
29.09.2016
Publishers are constantly faced with the question of how to balance content and ads to provide the best possible experience for your users. And as you might have found, there’s no easy one-size-fits-all approach. Every site and app is different, with different types of content, objectives, and users, which means that balancing content and ads will look different from publisher to publisher. When faced with this challenge, it’s important to ensure that you give your users what they’re looking for in a format that’s easy to find and navigate, and this includes the ads on your page or app.

Here are a few tips to help you balance ads and content.

1. Content is king.
Your content is the reason users are visiting your site or app. If you think about it, your users are visiting your site for a reason, whether they are looking for a recipe, how to build a birdhouse, or trying to find out what’s happening in their town. By providing them with the information they’re looking for, you satisfy their need in the moment that they need it the most. Check out this blog post to learn more about winning these micro-moments.

 Content is king

2. Design your site or app around the user journey.

By making your content the focal point on the page, and following standard web best practices, you can create a site that’s visually appealing and easy for your users to use and navigate. Check out the AdSense Guide to Audience Engagement for best practices on designing user journeys, not just web pages.

 Content is king


3. Use ads to complement your site or app.
Ads should always supplement the content on your site, not the other way around. So when you’re placing ad units on your site, consider the user journey and how the ad format will complement your site and provide value for your users. If you want ads to look more natural, and match the feel of your content, consider using native ad units. For example, news and article publishers could consider using the native-style format called Matched content at the bottom of each article to direct readers to other relevant content on the same site. This strategy can help grow readership and your ad business. 

 Content is king

4. Test, test, test and test again.

At the end of the day, data will be your source of truth. If you’re considering implementing new ad units, run an AdSense experiment to see how they perform. Also, test the different formats to see what works best for your users and your page.
 Content is king

Remember, content is king and it’s the most important thing to users on your site. So you should always have more content than ads on each page. For more information and best practices, head over to the AdSense Help Center or join our next #AskAdSense office hours on Twitter and Google+.
