    Possible optimization

    Hi guys, ive been running ads for around 5 days now and the results im getting are a bit rubbish to say the least! below are the stats:

    Paypopup:

    2005-05-06 142 $0.24
    2005-05-07 221 $0.35

    Google Adsense:

    04 May 2005 6,356 x x% USD0.05 USD0.30
    05 May 2005 8,845 x x% USD0.11 USD0.97
    06 May 2005 8,386 x x% USD0.04 USD0.31
    07 May 2005 6,774 x x% USD0.06 USD0.4

    Now im getting roughly 2200 uniques a day to dwog.net
    Id of expected to maybe be earning a bit more - the google ads seem to be paying not an awful lot per click - is this right??

    Thanks in advance

    its a bit tough to decide for me. But, you never want to put the ads on the right, atleast for me. The first thing i look at is the upper left/left, so maybe put some there... that could increase your ctr.. Also, make sure its above all your content, and obviously blend it in.
    How does that make your feel?

    Their CPC is awful on some keywords, and great on others. It really depends on what kind of site you have.

    By the way, you shouldn't really be revealing your CTR (Google could disable your account if they see you doing this). You might want to blank out those numbers.
