    You might be right or not. If an ads interest me, i'm gonna click on it. I don't care if it's making you money or not. Big sites in the tech niche uses adsense as well.

    I am in the IM niche, I know almost everything about sites and AdSense and I still click ad If it interests me. Do you really think your audience is that smart? You need proper tracking and recheck everything on your site.

    I see. Can you tell me then whats wrong and whats your CTR? Thanks

    in longer articles i have about 12 ads, in shorter 5. one ad in sidebar. i use adsense only. ads are orange title and gray text. ads are between paragraphs in random places and have margins same as paragraphs so it blends well

    should I, or do you, block page content till users unblock ur domain in adblock ?
