can anyone help??
Try putting the ads in the content instead of all around it. Don't spam the ads everywhere but experiment with that, i havent used adsense in a while but you can definitely increase your clicks.
Well it is hard to say just looking at that image, but it looks pretty unappealing to me.
What is your bounce rate like?
I didn't think image sites were great for adsense.
Why did you start two threads about your low CTR? One is more than enough.
Yeah it looks pretty shit but bare in mind that I have blocked out a lot on the text and images, so looks better in real life.
Take a look at this:
I did a case study on it.
I recommend you change the whole theme. You'll want something light and airy, not something dark and claustrophobic .
I also find images have higher CPC, but lower CTR, and overall lower RPM. Making the ads look like a massive menu/banner works great!
Thanks mate. That's some impressive numbers.
If I could get that type of ctr with my traffic numbers I'd be making some money!
Going to experiment with the two rectangle ads above the content now and change the colours tomorrow.
Another thing, I noticed on your text rectangle text ads don't match your websites colour scheme (they still look nice though) but is it not better to blend the ads in to the site?
OP why not learn how to do A/B testings? Is like learning how to fish. You will be able to feed yourself.
this is a forum is it not? Asking questions is what its all about no? I have no one else to ask, so i'll ask on here if you don't mind.
My offline business is very labour intensive, I work long hours. I only have an hour or two a day to work on my site which is very much a hobby at the moment, so I need to save as much time as possible and use what little time I have effectively.
I am not an expert but I am pretty sure it is your ad placement and the color around your ad banner, it just looks too out of place.
And that area often becomes banner blindness: here's an interesting research if you'd like to ready:
Like I agree with Ardley216, you should change the whole theme, try looking for Adsense themes. Hope it will fix the problem.
This is a forum not an Q&A website. Others people times is valuable too, and for some people this is their career not a hobby. But with that attitude, you will go far. Have a good day.
lol there's always one.
Thanks mate. Yeah I think a complete redesign is needed.
