    Fact: Adsense pays based on an auction system

    Fact: The more ads you have on your page the less bidders have to pay because there's more ad space inventory.

    Put these two facts together and you can see why many bloggers aren't MAKING ENOUGH MONEY with ADSENSE.

    They simply FILL up their pages with Adsense ad spots.

    There are even 'Adsense boosting' themes that use this shotgun approach.

    If you want to make more money, use ONE ad block for adsense.

    Only advertisers that paid top dollar will show up on that block (assuming your traffic is from the US or other Tier-1 countries)

    I think you have a point there.

    Yes but your INCOME would be higher.

    To boost income further make sure you use both TEXT and GRAPHICS adsense ads. Not just text only.

    Yes, I've tested this. I wish I made the move YEARS ago. It boosted my Adsense income quite a bit.

    I have 3 ads on article because people are reading articles from mobile phone and not from desktop. I don't have to put adsense on sidebars.

    I already tested this on one of my blog (only one ad on top right of header) few years back, but i got very low ctr. OP, can you suggest any specific ad placement?

    Everything I've ever done myself and read from others shows this:

    Above the Fold and Below "some" other text (below Title of article, just under first paragraph, etc.).

    I have not done it awhile, but again ALL my testing in the past and everyone I ever talked to (including people who were easily doing 1 million+ views per month), showed that placement as best AND the default text link color also outperformed all other combos.

    Don't believe me though. Go test it yourself.

    Good luck!

    So you have on your site one ad for let say - 3$ per click
    ..and when you put second ad on the same page you got - ad for 2,85$ per click

    so either you have let say 6% (CTR) chance to earn 2,93$ (because 3+2,85$ /2 = 2,93$)
    or 3% (CTR) to earn 3$ and that option you prefer.. good luck with that logic :D

    does having less ads really help?
