    Is there a way to attract visitors to my blog to see the right column to click on a banner? maybe my banner is not interesting?

    A lot of people these days have what is called "banner blindness:" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Banner_blindness

    You could try using less common ad sizes and formatting the ad into your content to make it look more natural.

    So, i'm thinking to design a new banner that look as an adsense unit 160x600, do you think that this style will be better of graphic banner?

    Personally I don't think you should be forcing anyone to look at your colon. That's disgusting and probably illegal.

    Just include it in like your post some where... Look at some famous news websites and most of the time, the ads are near the start of the article.

    You should try simply asking on your blog if anyone would be so kind as to click your banner, as a form of donation to keep your content new and free??

    You need to add a pop over/ hover ad into the home page & SE entrance pages of your blog. There are many wordpress plugins that do this. Some free and some might cost a little but they are worth the buy.

    One plugin I like to use is Opt-in Bar, do a Google search for the sales page. Focus on building a list and not just getting people to click a banner. Advertise what ever is behind that banner to your list. Opt-in Bar helps me with this and it might be a good thing for you to invest in.

    I could go into great detail but you would have to pay me for my time, LOL :D Just kidding!
