    Does having more ads on website effect rankings?

    I have a client site, which has 2 adsense,few amazon, 2 banner ads. 8.81% text/html ratio. I think ranking started slipping abit after they added more advertisements. (it went higher after I completed doing some linking)

    Does anyone have experience in this area?

    Thank you

    Yes, it will. Especially ads above the fold. Look at the Alexa rank of Ezine and watch how it slipped after one of the onpage Panda updates.

    If you use ads too aggressively and you place them before the content of your website it can harm your SERP rankings. Try to use ads less and don't put them all over the place.

    I've seen lots of sites with nothing but different ads placed on them got hit by Panda pretty hard. It's better to be careful.

    Some people even say that adding Adsense on your site will improve your rank :).

    I believe that some ads should not hurt your rankings (at least they didn't hurt mine), but don't over do it.

    Adsense won't harm your rankings, that's waht I can say.

    Too many ads could lower your ranking.
