    Hi guys,

    Whats your opinion about this website and its ads placement ?


    Consider that the blank space on top will have an adsense ad and is currently under review.

    Hmm... if the blank space will turn into Adsense I guess the placement is OK, but nothing special. I would expect an average CTR with this. Have you thought of taking out one of your middle videos and change it for an adsense unit of the same size?

    hi buddy

    you mean to remove the middle column of contents ?


    I believe contents have always to be the main core of a website, but Im grateful toget any additional ideas....


    regarding the adsense ad on top, would you go for the DISPLAY BANNER or a standard TEXT adsense ad ?

    I would use an A/B test tool like optimizely so you can see which kind of banner works better for you. Text has higher CPC and much less CTR, so it really depends on the kind of people visiting your site.

    I will try that tool.


    For example, i know this website here makes great money and no surprise, Its full of ads all around, each article is split into several sub-pages with the NEXT button surrounded by many ads

    Maybe Id like a good compromise, to me contents are the main focus but Id like to find a formula to bank the most

    what Im second thinking now is if it would be better to change the home structure....enlarging the articles on 1 big column only, with a right sidebar of ads
