Google Adsense Ad Sizes & Placing
To make more money with Google Adsense you need to consider where to place your ads,the type of ad,etc.Placing your ads in the right location is very important because if the ad is not in the right location,people will not be able to see them which means they won’t click them which means you won’t get paid.If you do not have a heat map of your blog be sure to get one.This will show where the best location for your ad should be to receive the most clicks.Normally,the best location is just above the main content.
There are many different sizes of ads that Google Adsense offers you,but the ones that make you the most money are 160×600 (skyscraper),728×90 (leaderboard),300×250 (medium rectangle),and 336×280 (large rectangle).These four ad sizes are placed all around a blog or website.
The skyscraper normally goes on the mid left and right sides of the site.My two skyscrapers are on the mid right side as you can see if you scroll down.
The leaderboard ad normally goes in the header of the site.Being a long and slim ad,in the header is the best location because most visitors view the header before anything else when entering a sit.
The medium rectangle is a great ad to put at either the beginning or end of a longer post (600 words or more).If you put the ad in a post with less than 500 words the site would look to tacky with all the ads in one section.Many visitors leave a site because of too many ads.
The large rectangle I put as an alternative of three 125×125 button ads.The viewer is more likely to click on a bigger ad then 1/3 125×125 ads.
Google Adsense Ad Types & Channels
If you have a Google Adsense account you already know how flexible it is to design your own ads and create your own channels,where you can accept placement advertisers.What are placement advertisers?Placement advertisers are the big guys who come in and out bid all of the contextual advertisers and say I want to have my ad on www.BradleyIsCool.com.
What are the Google Ad Types?There are 3 different types of ads you can have;1.Text ads only 2.Text and Image ads 3.Image/rich media only.Depending on where you put these ads depends on the money you will make on them.For an example if you do videos on your blog a medium rectangle ad with text ads only would work.For a skyscraper on the mid left or right of the site image/rich media only would work for this ad.
What is a Google Adsense Channel?A channel is basically a set of ads on your blog or website that if you check the box,placement advertisers can view your blog and may be convinced to put their ad on your website.
Heres an example of the medium rectangle next to one of my videos:
