    Google Adsense, what's more effective?

    Does anyone have any numbers on whether Google Adsense is more effective at the top of the page displayed horiztonally, or in the right-rail vertically?

    thanks

    Leaderboards are easier to read, Skyscrapers are longer lasting (the user will see it the entire way down), it depends, if the user is likely to read your entire page, consider a skyscraper, else, use a leaderboard. I prefer the boxes anyways
    GamesLib.com - the slickest, most complete and
    easily navigatible flash games site on the web.

    I'd be usuing on IPB, so I think the skyscraper would probably be best. Is anyone making any money on adsense?

    Isn't the answer to that question obviously 'yes'?

    It depends on the layout of your site and how it is integrated.

    The general consensus is that the average internet user ignores the regular horizontal banner. Sky scrapers are good but the square (250x250) in the middle of some great content is supposedly the best...though I am NOT an expert. I've been in the program for about 2 months and making about 3.50 a day from google and another .60 a day from searchfeed, which I like because I can target the keywords and control the ads better.

    People say that searchfeed pays less but since you can pick your keywords you can pick real high payouts.

    You should test ad placements on your site for three weeks. On the first week, place just the letterboard, then place just the skyscraper on the second. On week three, try using both at once. The only way to really know for sure which one works best for you is to compare these results, and see which week produces the highest CTR and eCPM.
