    AdSense Tip

    Less is more! I think with AdSense I've figured out an important lesson... don't flood your page with ads so that hopefully someone will see one that appeals to them. Since the advertisers pay to get higher (priority) placement, if you display less ads, the ones that do show will be higher-paying ads. And, since people who don't click on ads won't click on ads no matter HOW many there are, it likely will behoove us just not to flood... make a single strip.

    Indeed, and keep in mind that ads aren't meant to be around everywhere. It's very logical that fewer ads relatively bring in more

    Too much google on this page? Hugeimage.com? I've noticed my click rate has gone up since I added the second one.

    Thanks for the tip. I just started learning about niche portal
    pages and generating affiliate revenues so I'm definitely going
    to be testing this out.

    By the way, did anybody test out the Google Adwords search
    feature you can put in your site?

    I agree with that, but what if any visitor doesn't feel interested into the first ad (though high paying) ? If the second or third one attracts him, he will click.

    I highly doubt people consciously read the ads like that. If they see something popping out at them, they may click. But, I'm sure that lost revenue will be more than made up for by those who click on higher-paying ads. I go anywhere from a few cents per click to over $1

    Relevant ads

    I agree with cyclone that if you are showing four ads in one row, then the visitor would not know which one is more expensive than other. The ad that attracts them will definitely get their attention.

    This is the reason that it is very important to purge out your competitors ads.

    So would you show slightly less paying ads which do not belong to your competitors or your wouldn't bother?

    On my opinion it doesnt matter how many ads you displayed on your page as long it is properly inplace and it is organize (pleasant to the eyes). For example adding a second or third unit in between paragraph of an article can attract your visitor to click if they see related ads on it. What matter most is proper placement of your ads.

    Its really ads per screen. If your page is very long there is no chance a user is going to see both a top ad and a bottom ad at the same time.

    I've put two ads and a search box on each page, on my sites I did not see an increase in earnings. I've gone back to just one Adsense ad per page. I guess it all depends on the web site, for me less is more.
