    Hi Gurus,

    I am really strugglling to get my foot stronger with Adsense. Whatever I do, the CPC is not going above 15c (mostly, 07-11c).

    While googling few months back I read somewhere that top 3 positions get max CPC as most of the bidders target them. So I worked hard on it... it's not easy to rank a KW!!! Then I got some of my KWs ranking Top 3... even 2 KWs at #1 (avg CPC=$2). The 2 KWs are at #1 position since last 2 months.

    But today, when I opened my account... I found, that same 7-10 CPC....:(

    I am totally fu**ed up... Gurus, please help me... I can't find any solution for this.

    Here the main question is what is the the content topics?
    And how much total traffic you are getting?
    The traffic is from which country?

    Have you checked your banner placement? You would be very suprised at how moving your banners to a better position can increase things.

    Curious but where would these placements be? I

    I have mind above the fold, inline and bottom. CPC is crap. I also use responsive ad sizes. Perhaps, 300 are better?

    I partly find the solution you should block those urls that are low paying adsense advertisers. It would greatly increased your CPC. You should try it! There are 500 sites or more that are paying for 0.1-10c.

    Thanks for the reply! yes. I think the problem is identifying these low paying advertisers. I wonder however if someone has a way of identifying these low paying advertisers.

    Have a great New Year!

    Are you using both image and text ads? Test different sizes and different placements.

    But to be honest mate, low CPC is the smallest of your problems. With 200 visitors, you are looking at no more than $0.50 a day ... Get that traffic up first!
