Best Ad Placement for Adsense

Postby thechettybear » Tue Aug 05, 2008 12:05 pm

Is there any general ad placement that you all find to be the best for adsense?

I decided to try out using the large triangle at the top like Griz does but I also put a leaderboard above that and then more adsense ads in the right column.

I would think this would work out pretty well. But I'm not making 5% CTR and I thought that was about average.

What do most people here average for CTR according to Adsense page impressions?

How has your experience been with the Text Links?

Anything over 3% is good for Adsense.

I discuss my preferred Adsense placement in these articles:

A 336x280 above the post title is what works best for me. I get above 10% with Court's Dateless Sniper Theme. And blogger blogs get about 5% CTR.

Yeah I do the same as James. One big block above the post title nets me around 8-10% CTR depending on the niche. I usually don't bother with adding any additional ads, but I've been meaning to experiment a little. I think too many ads make people realize they're looking at an MFA and leave without clicking anything.

On one blog I have had decent success with putting the 728x15 text link ads just below my blogs subtitle.

I currently have the text links just below the subtitle and the large rectangle just above the post title.

Oo, trackstar's post reminded me, I have one site where the one big block of ads was doing only like 2-3% CTR. I find this is the case for sites that people find when they're looking for practical examples of things.

In this case, it can be beneficial to insert a set of the horizontal skinny adsense ads after each of the first few paragraphs, colored to match the text & links so it makes 'em feel like its a resource rather than an ad.

Anybody know what the rules are for putting Adsense within the post of your Blogger blog?

I have read that it is discourage but Google but not sure if that means they just don't like it or they will take you down for it...
