    Hi Guys,

    I really need your help on this one. I have two Dutch websites about funny pictures and videos. It's like a dutch 9gag version. I recently changed my templates to a responsive wordpress template and that went great. So I had standart adsense on my websites and I read on forums that only text ads works much better. So I changed my ads to only text ads and that went amazing!

    I had with 200 - 300 uniques a day about 10 - 12 clicks. Because I was so happy I added social buttons to each picture and video on the websites. I also went experimenting with text ad colours etc.

    Suddently I had no clicks at all or 1 click a day. I went crazy so I putted everything back to normal with the ads and still nothing. So I figured out it had something to do with the social media buttons. I removed the buttons on the sites and the clicks came back. But not as much as it used to be L I have now 2-3 clicks a day with 300-400 uniques. I don't now what is going on and I'm getting crazy. I'm positive that I can make a lot more money with these two websites. One of them is ranked at #1 on Google with the keyword funny pictures in Dutch.

    I wanted to ask you guys on advise about the ads on my websites.


    I really hope you guys can help me out!

    Don't make your sites public like that in BH forum.

    That's why you do A/B testing, hard lesson learned. As with any landing page, avoid distraction of the main goal.

    People can do bad things to your sites.

    For people that didn't see the links. I've seen the first domain (pictures) the theme was looking good. Red the dominant color. Adsense was integrated well and he has 3 link units on the right side of the page. The social share buttons didn't look to out of place and were in the content (not in a fixed menu etc.).

    I don't have a clue why you get so much less clicks.

    I do read everywhere that text ads convert better and in my case they do, but your blog is visual in nature so I guess it could be the other way round. Why you don't tell yourself: Ok screw the income of the next 4 weeks. I'm trying a slightly different layout each day and look where I hit a sweet spot? There are also alot of A/B testing tools available for Adsense and Wordpress that can help you with that.
