    Hey guys I have a wordpress website that gets good traffic atm. I have an amazon carousel widget above every article. I have a CPA banner placed at the widgets area and infolinks.

    I'm still not earning a good ammount so I was wondering if adding adsense like 1 ad block per page would it hurt more to my website ranking/look.

    Or does the extra $ you would generate be better?

    ty in advance.

    lol - did you think about it before posting this? How else would site owners make a living..

    Yes you can monetize sites you own. Just make sure you have the right offers (relevant ones) and have them in the right place.

    As long as you don't overdo your site with ads you are safe. The best is to find the right balance between content and ads to be safe from rank dropping. I cannot confirm this on personal example but Google has confirmed that too many ads may be an obstacle. As I understand you have 3 blocks of ads and looking to add 4th, maybe it's still ok.

    Just go easy on the amount of advertising that you have and you'll be fine.

    Having said that, I would wait until you at least have a decent amount of traffic before bothering to try and monetize it.
