    Hey all. I've got a simple autoblog running in the depression niche, at http://www.depressed.co.cc
    I've run it for a month with the adsense in top middle position for the first three articles on the home page, and in the single pages, and have got maybe 1.1% CTR, getting maybe $1 a day. Can anyone tell me what a better size/position would be for this sort of site?
    I've tried experimenting with the colour palette a bit and this simple default theme seems to work best.
    Thanks for any help.

    You just have to keep testing and testing each site is different. I'd try out one of the plugins that will place your ad's in your posts.. I cant remember the name of any but search wordpress plugins for adsense and you should get a few.

    Try making the ads fill up the size of the width of the box they are in with square corners.

    Add in an adsense vertical on the left hand side below the search box.

    You could reduce the size of your header a bit I think its taking up a lot of space.

    Try matching the colour of your ads to the theme you are using.
