Here is how I optimized my AdSense placement
1. Limit your Ads to maximum of 6 per page
I normally make sure that I place a maximum of 6 Ads per page, this means every ads, including non-AdSense ads as well.
The benefit of this is you don’t cluster your page with ads… Many users don’t like webpages clustered with Ads.
So, having like 3, 4, 5 or at most 6 ads per page is not a rule of thumb but it’s ideal for better results which is user experience as well as earnings.
2. I position the first AdSense ads on the page at most strategic positions
So, I have read that Google serves the best ads first for every page AdSense codes are placed.
This means that the ads that appear first on the page most likely has highest earning potentials – CTR, CPC, etc.
So, you want to make sure that the first ads are properly positioned.
3. I tried different placements positions
Ultimately, you can easily tell the best positions to place ads on your page by trying different placement positions.
For example, I had an ad just before my posts… Although the ad had good CTR but I don’t like the way it positioned relative to my posts. So, I had to remove it.
Therefore, you need to experiment with different placement positions for your ads to determine which yields best result.
