    Hey guys,
    I have just experimented with AdSense placement and move big square to the text, to the top left corner (beacuse people read from left to right)
    And its pretty good my earnings went up.
    But my ctr is sometimes between 5-10% is it risky?

    I don't see how that can be risky, google is pretty smart and they know when people are clicking on their own links, so as long as you are not clicking on these links you should be fine.

    No problem if you 5-10%. I have a blog that gets around 10-15% CTR, no problem till now from BIG G.

    Nope, you shouldn't have any issues with that CTR. I know a few guys who have a 8%+ CTR and they are doing pretty well. Although they all have very good traffic sources. And they have old adsense accounts too. So that helps them a lot too. Not to mention google is good at detecting the fraud clicks. :D

    shouldn't be a problem. i read recently you shouldn't have too many ads above the fold...might want to be aware of that one. I moved my sidebar ad to the bottom of the page and I have one in top left and one in the middle right of content area.
