So I have a couple websites with AdSense ads on them. In the past I have just thrown the ads up there, and let the results kinda happen. This is rather foolish, so I decided while I only have a few sites with ads it would be a good idea to test different ad layouts and locations.
Some people think they should plaster the AdSense ads right at the begining of the screen. I honestly think there is no written rule that works on the entire web, but the ads should not be disruptive.
One of my websites is about an informational topic relating to psychology. Off the start I just threw the ads up there, and they probably were rather disruptive. I then moved them ... and moved them again. Right now I have them primarily placed at the end of the content on that website.
When I created that website the goal was to help and inform, not to make money. Now that the ads are at the end of the content I get to increase my permission asset with my readers before they buy clicking on an AdSense ad...I am certain I will do better at all goals.
Today has been one of my better click through rates since I joined the program... I suppose marketing just makes sense if I just accept common sense and feedback...Its worth it to use a little sense when thinking about where to place my AdSense.
