    It's one of those questions where it is difficult to find the right forum category, so I am posting this here under design while it's actually about money making.

    Let's say you have a regular blog with pictures and text. 2 paragraphs of text are followed by a photo with a short caption using full width of main area. I want to place text ads close to the photos. What would result in higher CTR: below photo or above photo?

    This is not for adsense, no need to comment on Google TOS.

    Thank you for mentioning that it's not for adsense. I would preferred to place the ads above photos.

    It depends on the photo, I guess. I suggest you put the ad above the photos because
    usually the bottom is for caption. But, isn't putting an ad next to image causes
    ad-blindness? Just saying..
