Turn on Documents in Settings Installed Apps first: How to Solve this pr...


Turn on Documents Settings - MIUI

Hey there, Have you ever this problem? It usually happens with the 3rd-party apps which require access to the SD Card. Or in other words, we can say that it happens with the apps which require root permission to the storage.

Earlier I used to think that the only possible solution is to ROOT the phone. But, that's not true.

There is one more solution which doesn't require to ROOT the device. However, it's a temporary solution. Whenever you'll switch off your device or reboot the problem will come again.

But if are one of those who doesn't want to ROOT their phone, then this option is far better right?

I'm not writing a complete post because I've already made a video on how to solve this issue. However, if you want me to write a complete guide with screenshots, then let me know in the comment section below.

For now, Watch the video below and solve this issue:

So, that was it. Let me know if you still have anything to ask. Do check out our YouTube Channel for more such videos. I'll see you soon. Have a Great Day!

Adsense launched 3 New Native Ad Types, Publishers Revenue to Grow


Google Adsense - New Native Ad Types

Recently, Google Adsense has introduced their 3 New Native Ad Types for Adsense publishers, Which may bring great impact on your revenue.

In this post, we'll discuss how it is going to affect your revenue and growth. The Pros and Cons of using these Ad Formats, How it is performing? And I'll also show you, How you can implement it on your website/blog?

As I said above, There are 3 Native Ad Types that you can use on your website/blog. Here's what they call them:

  1. Matched Content
  2. In-feed Ads
  3. In-Article Ads
You may have already seen these type of Ad Formats on any blogs or you might have used them too.
Let's discuss them one-by-one in details.

1. Matched Content

If I'll guess, then there is 90% chance that you have already seen this ad type in many blogs. The name discloses it well but let me tell you how these ads are placed on blogs and websites.

It is used in blogs especially because it fits there very natively. You may have already seen it as, "Recommended" or "Related Articles".

You have already imagined it right? Here's how the Matched Content looks like on the websites/blogs (No Ads - Ads will be placed by replacing any of them.):

Matched Content Example on Desktop

And here is one more example which is shown on Google Adsense Blog for Mobile Devices:
Matched Content Ad Example on Mobile Phones
Image Source: Adsense Blog
(The image is taken from Adsense blog as this blog is still not eligible for Matched Content)

Did you like it? By the way, Google Adsense gives you the full ability to change the way it looks. And as the name says, you can match it accurately with your content.

However, to use this ad format there is an Eligibility Requirement. You must be eligible to use this ad format on your blog/website.

You can only use this ad format on the sites/blogs which will pass the eligibility requirements and is/are approved.

Every good thing comes with some side-effect right? This has too...

Now let's see the Pros and Cons of using Matched Content.

Pros: 
  • It increases your revenue
  • It increases user engagement
  • Increase in session length
Cons:
  • Needs improvement in recommending related articles
  • No frequent updates so displays old contents more than new


2. In-feed Ads

This one seems to be a new one, but I think, it's not. This ad type is also being used in many blogs but I see it rarely. You might have also the same experience as me.

This ad format is placed in between your feeds like blog post lists, news feeds, product listing, and other listicles.
Don't miss understand, it's not the email one that we used to have earlier.

Have you seen ads like this? Well, I've. But it's rare. Let's have a look how Google In-feed ads look like:

Google In-Feed Ad Example


Cool right? You'll also see them live in action on this page. Find it below the comment box and observe for your reference. 

Here's one example from Google Adsense Blog for mobile devices:

In-feed Ad Example on Mobile Phone
Image Source: Adsense Blog


There is so much possibility that it can grow your CTRs and which will result in higher revenue.

So, shall we look at it's Pros and Cons? Let's have a look:

Pros:
  • Increase in Click Through Rate (CTR)
  • Increase in Revenue
  • Increased CPC, CPM etc.
Cons:
  • Needs to improve to show related/relevant ads
  • Needs more advertisers, there are very few so appears the same ad again and again.


3. In-Article Ads:

This one you already know right? I mean from other networks? I think so.
This ad format is placed in between your articles like a break.

I've seen it in many blogs but I find it a little bit distracting. I suggest, don't overdo it. Otherwise, it may distract your readers.

Here's how it looks like, live in action:

In-Article Ad Example 1

KFC Ad in Tech Blog that you are reading, the post is about "Top 5 Android Photo Editing Apps". KFC Ad... Are you serious Google? Not enough for judgment? Here's one more below:

In-Article Ad Example 2


Do you find it distracting? I think it's a little bit distracting. So, use it wisely. Don't overdo it. I don't think Google is not intelligent enough to show relevant ads.

I think this happens because of the fewer number of ads/advertisers. I'm pretty sure it will improve sooner than later. 

However, Let me tell you that you can resolve this issue by blocking ad categories or one-by-one ads.

Here's how it looks on any mobile phone:

In-Article Ad Example on Mobile Phone by Adsense Blog
Image Source: Adsense Blog


For your reference, I've placed an in-article ad below so that you can see it, live in action. Here it is:





Now let's have a look at the pros and cons:

Pros:
  • Increased Active view impression
  • Increased Ad Rates (i.e., CPC, CPM etc.)
Cons:
  • It's a little bit distracting
  • Unable to find matching or relevant ads
  • Can cause lower CTR

Conclusion:

As you read above, all them may turn out to be a profitable decision but it can harm the user experience too. As there are very few ads/advertisers right now, They are unable to serve relevant ads.

However, In future, it may definitely give you some extra profit. I suggest don't overwhelm your readers with too many ads. It may distract them and can harm the user experience too.

And this behavior on your site may lead you to lower Search Engine Rankings. But if you do it correctly, You'll definitely get some increased benefit.

Let me know your views and suggestions on this. Did you like them?

Chrome to Filter Ads by Default - Publishers Revenue at Risk!


Chrome will Filter Ads Soon


Are you a Publisher who's main income source is Ads Publishing on your site? If yes, then you've got something to worry about!

There's is a chance You may loose almost all the revenues of your website by the start of 2018.

Keep reading for detailed info and How you can prevent this situation.

Recently, Google hinted out that they will soon introduce an AD Blocker in their very own, Chrome.

This feature of the Google Chrome will be in action from Jan 1, 2018. As per the source, this inbuilt feature of the Chrome will come as enabled by default.

That means Chrome users will not even have to enable it or download any other extensions to block the ads.

They call it an "AD Filter". It will be available on both Mobile and Desktop Browser.

As Google said in their announcement, it will block even their own Ad Networks including Google Ads. So, even if you are using Google AdSense on your site, You are still at risk of losing your revenues.

Now it's quite scary, Right?


Who should be worried and Who should not?

Well, As Google's own primary source of revenue is Displaying Ads. They understands you very well.

They are not opposing it completely, and that's why it's called an AD Filter instead of AD Blocker.

There are lots of good publishers too like you and me. And Google doesn't want to filter ads for the publishers like us.

So, if your site has good user and ad experience then you have nothing to worry about but if your site is annoying with ads, You definitely need to be worried about it and take necessary actions,

They understand our need to keep up our work and that's why they'll not filter ads on every site. And they are also giving a fair chance to be one of them.

They have given 6 months (From June 1, 2017) for every publisher to fix the issue on their site. They will also guide you on How you can be one of the whitelisted sites which won't be filtered for ads.

To get their help to build an Ad/User-friendly site, You must be a Search Console user (Google Webmaster Tools). And you must have verified properties i.e., your websites.

(If you don't know anything about Search Console and how to use it, check out this resource.)

Google will help publishers like us, with their new tool/service named Ad Experience to pass the ad filter or getting whitelisted.

The Ad Experience Report tool looks like the screenshot below:

Ad Experience Report - IT ADDA!


How Google will determine which sites to Whitelist?

According to the official Google Blog, they have joined the Coalition for Better Ads, an industry group dedicated to improving online ads. The social giant Facebook is also a part of it.

Google will follow the Better Ads Standards to determine which publishers will pass the chrome ad filter and who won't.

You can visit betterads.org to get more details about which ad formats are considered to be a good ad and which don't.

Here's what Sridhar Ramaswamy (Senior Vice Precident, Ads & Commerce) has to say about their new tool for the publishers (Ad Experience Tool):

The new Ad Experience Report helps publishers understand how the Better Ads Standards apply to their own websites. It provides screenshots and videos of annoying ad experiences we’ve identified to make it easy to find and fix the issues. For a full list of ads to use instead, publishers can visit our new best practices guide

Ad Experience Report - Preview
Image Source: Google Blog

If you have checked the above resources carefully then you may have understood everything that you should know. And here's one more brief snippet from Google's official blog that might be useful for you:
Chrome has always focused on giving you the best possible experience browsing the web. For example, it prevents pop-ups in new tabs based on the fact that they are annoying. In dialogue with the Coalition and other industry groups, we plan to have Chrome stop showing ads (including those owned or served by Google) on websites that are not compliant with the Better Ads Standards starting in early 2018.



Conclusion:

If your site passes with the Ad Experience test then you are good to go otherwise you need to take actions right now.
Check out all the resources linked from this post and be on the good side to stand a chance to get whitelisted by Google Chrome i.e., to pass their Ad Filter which will start on Jan 1, 2018.

Let me know your views on it, and comment if you have anything to ask. Are you happy with this change?

Monetize YouTube even under 10,000 views if this is the case


10,000 Views Necessary?

If you're also a regular YouTuber then I'm sure you have also heard that from 6th, Apr 2017 you must have 10,000 total lifetime views in your videos to monetize or earn from YouTube.

Yes, it's somewhat true as their newest YouTube Partner Program Policy says the same thing.

But,
That's not completely true, It is possible to monetize your YouTube Channel using Adsense even when you don't have 10,000 views on your channel.

This is not a trick or anything illegal. This is just an optional way if you already have an Adsense account.

In this post, I'm going to show you How you can monetize or earn from YouTube using Adsense, without having 10,000 views?

I wrote this post because one random guy requested me to answer his question on Quora. Which was, "Can I earn from YouTube without having 10,000 views on my YouTube Channel with Adsense?"

Everyone knows about the new policy so I would not talk about that, I will just show you how I still use my existing Adsense account to monetize my YouTube Channel.


The Proof

First of all, let me show you the proof. See the screenshot below and observe:

Screenshot denoting Monetized Playback and Lifetime Views


As you can see on the screenshot above, The channel has only 407 Total Lifetime Views when I took the screenshot.

It's the official channel of this blog, You can check the current statistics of the channel with this link.

And if you'll look at the right bottom of the screenshot, then you'll see that the channel has received a monetized playback in the last 28 days.

And that monetized playback was worth only $0.0010, so it's not being shown in the estimated revenue.

If you're thinking how do I know it worthed $0.0010 then just look at the screenshot again with zoom in. The graph shows it clearly.

Here's the revenue report from the analytics section if you still don't believe me. See the screenshot below:

Revenue Report of YouTube


I know it's a very small estimated earning but the fact is it's true and the screenshot proves it.

Now let's check out why I am still able to monetize YouTube without having 10,000 total lifetime channel views.



The Reason

I would be very honest, actually, I don't know why exactly I'm able to monetize my YouTube Channel even under 10,000 views but I know the facts that may be responsible for it. So let's check out them...

The first reason that I feel that may be responsible for the same is:

1. My Channel was Created before the announcement of the New Policy

The Joining Date of The Channel

As shown in the screenshot above, the channel was created on November 30, 2016. That is before the announcement of the new YouTube Partner Program Policy.

This can be one of the reason but I have talked with a few others with the same conditions but they are not able to do it. So I'm not sure about this.


2. I have AdSense for content account with high earnings

Still not being sure but this one may also be the reason that I'm able to monetize my channel without having 10,000-lifetime views.

The AdSense account that I use to monetize my YouTube Channel, is actually an Adsense for content account. Usually, YouTubers use Hosted Adsense account to monetize their YouTube Channel.

I already had this Adsense account since 2014 and I earn good enough with Google Ads on my blogs and websites.

Maybe they've determined me as a genuine publisher since I'm using their service for a long time and I'm doing it really well.

Maybe that represents me as a good publisher on YouTube too and that allows me to display ads on my YouTube Channel. I think this one is the main reason, however, I'm not sure about it yet.


Conclusion:

In my opinion, it is possible to monetize your YouTube Channel even when you are under 10,000 total lifetime views on your channel. You just have to match any of the situation above or a combination of them. However, It's not proved yet by others than me.


At last, I would really like to know your opinion about it and if there is anything else to share with us. Just use the comment box below.
Do share it with those who may find it useful. And finally, Thanks for being with us.
