    I have 2 questions guys:

    1:

    I am currently running cpm on POF using the Small Ad (110x80).

    I wanted to start using the 310x110 Ad Option but I wanted to check with you guys and see What Size works best for you? 310x110 or 110x80 with the ability to Add Text and a Title?


    2:

    I have 3 ads running in the Dating niche. Are these CTR's Terrible?

    1. 0.117%
    2. 0.084%
    3. 0.054%

    Questions are to hard to answer cause there are so many other variables.


    1. Different ads will work in different situations. Without a better understanding of the offer no one can tell you which one works better. From my experience though it is not the size of the ad but the copy that it uses that makes it a winner. If you think you can do better with the other one you need to test. If I am running, singles looking for bbws in Nebraska, Maybe to larger one works over the smaller, I could run the same thing in a different state and the small one works.


    Without knowing how many impressions you got on each ad, I have nothing to go by. Maybe you got 2-3k impressions. Maybe you got 10k-20k <---- This one is more where you should be on the winner loser. All 3 are getting clicks, OBV I would focus more on the first 2, one thing is targeting, The smaller and more precise you are with your ads the better CTR you are going to get. Record what you have now and split test it a different way and see what you come up with.

    1 - The 310 x 80 has a better response supposedly, but it will still come down to your ads copy as said above. Im not sure if its still the case, but you used to have to deposit $1K before they were activated (you may have already done this?)
    See bens reply in the comments here: http://blog.ads.pof.com/2011/10/21/small-banners-now-available-310x110/

    2 - The general rule of thumb is above 0.08 is a keeper as long as you are getting conversions / making profit. so ads 1 and 2 are good as long as they are working for you. Just a case of rotating ads, getting the CTRs above 0.08, and making sure your landing page is good, unless you are direct linking.

    From your experience does a Lander work better than direct linking?
