This post is going to be relatively short compared to others. I am going to share my experience with adsense and what methods helped me get the best results. For those of you who don’t know what adsense is, you seriously need help. It is a money making opportunity offered by Google.
As you guys know there are different sizes that adsense comes in and you can use it all. There is a policy in adsense that you can only display 3 ads on one page. Even if you have the codes, they won’t display on the page, and just leave a blank space there. Well so how exactly do you monetize adsense with those 3 ads.
You need to embed the ads in the site. For example, make it seem like that it is a part of a content. For instance, if your site’s background is white, then make the adsense’s background white, and the text color the same as your original text color. This will increase your chances of getting more clicks because it is harder for people to distinguish them.
Which banner ad size works best? In my experience 336 x 280px google adsense size gives the best outcomes. They provide the best outcome when they are toward the top and are embedded in the content. Ad locations for the blog would be post pages in the post if you are putting. It is a complete waste if you put it in the sidebar because you would hardly ever get clicks. I do get a few clicks at the top of the site with the image ads 468 x 60, but When I put it in the middle of the post It didn’t work out well.
Another thing I would suggest that adsense is not a very big money maker on webmaster blogs. They would work very well on content sites that are not targetting webmasters because webmasters don’t tend to click on ads. Industries such as Real Estate, Mortgage, Loan, Finance tend to have really high CTR so you are going to get good returns.
I just wanted to share this little excerpt with the users who are trying to embed adsense in their sites. Chetan this was inspired by your question .
