Google Ads Placement

Friday, December 12, 2008 · 1 comments

Google ads or any pay per click ads placement is critical on the outcome of your blogs earnings. Couple with a large traffic on your site, ad placement will determine the overall revenue from your blog.

To make the most of the benefit of Pay Per Click ads, placement optimization is necessary. One should know what type of ads is earning the most, its size and other factors . To have an idea on this , surf the web, read popular blog, take a look at sites that are earning. Observe their ad placement then you will have an idea of what a good ad placement is. Observe your surfing habits, your computing habits. From observing yourself you can deduce what other normal surfers are behaving. Take for example your mouse pattern. Normally for myself I tend to place my mouse cursor on the right side of the screen. So when a surfer is viewing a particular site, most of the time the cursor is placed on the right side of the screen. So from this, we can assume that a good ad placement is on the right side of your site. Specifically on the right side bar.

Another good ad placement is above the blog post. Placing the ad above the blog post ensures that it will be the first thing the the reader sees when he/she views your blog posting. So if he/she sees something that interests him, he will eventually click the ads.

There are other techniques of ad placement that can earn you the most. The best thing to do is experiment and see whats the best result to have the most revenue.

I have recently created a new adzone with adbrite and it was rejected due to a post on my blog. Their email states that it was rejected due to a violation of their Publishers Acceptable User Policy. Their email states,

Hello Publisher,

After receiving the email I promptly reviewed my site and remove the post relating to Paid To-Click/Read/Search/Surf site. I promptly emailed the Adbrite support stating that I have already remove all references and articles relating to the PTC sites . Here's their reply:
