Best Places for your Google Adsense ad box

Best Places for your Google Adsense ad box

When you put google ad box to your blog or website you can put your ads on any place of your blog as your wish. Sometimes you get hits sometimes not. From them we can see most people are looking for more hits on ads. So they experiment different places to place their ads. But according to some researches they have identified ads in several places on your blog can get more hits comparing to the ads on other places. 

In the following image you can see where to put Google ads to get maximum number of hits.

Dark Red color areas are getting higher number of clicks comparing to other places.
Light Red color areas are getting low number of clicks.
All other places show equal performances.

Now I am going to tell you my personal opinion. According to my experience most number of clicks generated on ads just above the post, just below the menu bar and inside top left corner of the post (Just see how I have locate Google AdSense ads). Just think what I am saying is rational or not.

1.       Ads just above the post

When somebody came to read a about Adsense, the first place he has noticed is the title of the post and just above it. So the visibility of ads is more when you place ads just above the post.

2.       Ads just below the menu bar

Once you place ads on this place the visitor will think ads as a part of the menu bar if they not noticed it is powered by Google. So there will be more accidental clicks on your ads. And also this place has high visibility.

3.       Ads on left top corner of the post (inside the post)

While your readers reading a post, they will always take their eyes to the left side of the post to read the post repeatedly. Then he will notice your ads and if he feels any importance of those ads he will click on it. The visibility of ads is high on this place as well.

The other places of the blog will give equal result. Evan though I don’t use ads at the end of the post, I personally think it is good to have ads just below your post. 
As Google mentioned, you need to answer following questions prior to implement your Google ads.

         What is the user trying to accomplish by visiting my site?
 ·         What do they do when viewing a particular page?
 ·         Where is their attention likely to be focused?
 ·         How can I integrate ads into this area without getting in the users' way?
 ·         How can I keep the page looking clean, uncluttered and inviting?"

But everything depends on your user and their behavior. If they notice some other place in your blog rather than the places I have already mentioned, you need to insert your ads on those places rather than placing them on traditional places. So it is important to think about your ad placement to make more money with Google AdSense.

I would like to hear your opinion on placement of Google AdSense on your blog. Sometimes you may have different experience, opinions and ideas. Share it with me here.
