    I think I need a little help with my ads location because I think that is little for that # of views, what do you guys think?

    The bigger problem seems to be your $0.08 cpc

    Yes but that's pretty strange because in the morning it was like in 0.17 and it went down...

    I'm just learning myself so I can't help much but from what I understand your cpc increases if your content is closely relevant to the search terms the visitor used to get to your site. The country that your visitors come from is also a huge factor for cpc. USA, Canada, and UK give the highest payout. The last thing is your niche choice and the specific keywords you rank for. In your case my best guess would be your target country is not a high cpc country

    This is also affected by the source of your traffic.
    If this is bought traffic especially from social media like facebook then its possible.
    I have experienced this some time. I got traffic from facebook and on start counter, the exit links using Google ads were more than 300 on traffic of 10,000 views but adsense only recorded 10 to 15 clicks.

    Try this two.
    1. try reducing the number of times adsense is displayed by rotating ads with other publishers.
    2. apply for related post publishers like taboola and outbrain. With such traffic you will definitely earn more.

    hope this helps

    Where is your traffic coming from? Your low CPC could be due to low quality traffic, clicks from Europe, US will bring more $$$$.

    Could also be down to your niche, what is it? (Obviously you don't need to say)
    You might be better off selling ad space, check out buysellads.com

    You probably get lots of unrelated ads. Try to use the same color scheme on your ads as you do on your internal links, it will look less like an advertisement that way.
    Visitors will think the ads are your own suggestions and click on it because of your expertise and help.

    place ads in the article body, you will see a big difference. But don't over do it, put one ad in the beginning of the article from the left site and one in the bottom of the article.

    Most of my visits are from US and Puerto Rico so I don't think visits are the problem, ad placement should be the problem...

    For best ctr results, place an ad on the left sidebar and on the top. As for the cpc, obviously you have a low paying niche plus youre receiving social media which doesnt pay as high as search traffic. Looks pretty normal.

    We've been testing social media a lot and can def say it can pay a little lower, but not all the time. Social media is capable of providing $3.00 per click with high paying niche and displays on.
