Need suggestions for better placement of Adsense on my Finance Blog

I’ve a finance blog www.capitalbudgetingtechniques.com. I need some workable suggestions on placement of ads. Also, how I can avoid unrelated ads from appearing on my blog?

Thanks in advance.

on your article pages, try to insert an ad within the content with a div float:left

Thank you for your kind suggestions. I am also looking to relocate search bar somewhere else.

As for the placement… I’d get rid of your Google Search box. or at least move it into the right side of the site. Then try to style the font of the ad below that to match the colors of your site. You’ll probably get a few more accidental clicks that way. Also, try using a vertical link list instead of the content ads on the right side of your site. They clearly do not fit there. If you use the link list, some might mistake it as a navigation bar and click them.

The key is to get accidental clicks. Because 90% of people are not going to click on something if they know it’s an ad.

placement :

1.Do away with skyscraper
2. one large rectangle ( 300 x 250) just below the post title. left float preferably
3. another large rectangle just above the comment box
4. large rectangle in top and bottom of archive pages ( category archive & monthly archive)
5. large rectangle in 404 page
6. match the ad link color with post title color.
7.avoid affiliate links

Google provides an option to automatically manage your Ads Google way. Google identify your best performing ads and manges its ranking.

I don’t believe that is true. Even if it is, trying to design you site to trigger accidental clicks violates AdSense rules and will get you banned if you are caught.
