Homestay Malaysia, Experience a Kampung Life

In Malaysia there are two type of homestay offerings.

One type of homestay is a comfortable guest house that is rented out to guest by house owner for daily, weekly and monthly rate. This is a new industry in Malaysia and the number of house owners who have converted their houses into homestay is increasing by day. The location for this type of homestay is normally in town or well know tourist attraction places.

The advantages of a homestay compared to a hotel room is that the rate is much more cheaper and it's much more spacious. Plus, there is no strict restriction on number of adults allowed. You have more freedom and it will just the same as your house.

For another type of homestay, normally the guest house is located in Kampung or village surrounded by hills and padi fields. You still need to pay for your accommodation and other extras, but you will have the opportunity to join the locals go fishing, preparing dinner or simply enjoy idyllic kampung life. This type of homestay experience is much more fun. One way to runaway from the hustle and bustle of the city life.

Whatever type of homestay you're looking for, you could find it at http://carihomestay.net . You could easily get in touch with the homestay owner to rent out a house/ room or simply arrange at trip to experience a kampung life.

For homestay owner, you could publish your homestay details, contact detail and location map of your guest house.

How to serve third party ads in Adsense

You seldom have to do this if most of your articles are in English, however if your post contains other language such as Malay language. Then, most probably you want to do this.

I give you an example, if you go to carihomestay.net, at the main page it's serving ads from Adsense, however when you select one particular homestay which is written mainly in Malay language Adsense don't have any ads to serve and I have to use ads from BidVertiser to serve ads to maximize my revenue.
So, how to do it?
You need to sign up with alternate adsense competitor such as AdBrite orBidVertiser.
Access the third party site and get the advertisement code. Select the format that you want to use.
Save the code in a html page and upload the page to your website page. Please note for BidVertiser code, if you generate the code for www.example1.com . It will only work for that domain only, you can not use it for other domains
Next, access your Adsense account. Click Adsense Setup Tab.
Then Click Manage Ads, find your adsense code that you want to update. I like to create a new channel for each my adsense code and name it with position and website that I am using it for analysis purpose.
Click Edit Ad Setting.
At the More Option Section, for “Choose what to display if no relevant ads are available. ”
Select “Show non-Google ads from another URL ”
And type url of the html page that you have uploaded just now.
Select the channel you want to use and Click Save Settings.
Now, you can serve other third party ads.
For BidVertiser, maybe you don't want to use to pop up ads. I think Google don't allow pop up ads at domains that their serve.
