How to increase Adsense CTR (Earnings) by more than 70% guaranteed!

MailerLite Email Marketing for Small Business

Google Adsense of course is a quick way to make money online if you’ve got some traffic.

There are more different ways to monetize your website but contextual advertising seems to be generating huge passive income for many.


I don’t care how much money your Adsense ads are bringing in right now… as a smart online marketer you should always be asking yourself this:

  • Are the ads on my website(s) positioned in the absolutely best possible way?
  • Could I be getting a higher CTR (click-through-rate) on any one of my ads?
  • How much Adsense revenue am I actually leaving on the table?

I’ve been optimizing Adsense earnings for my weight loss blog for over ayear now…but it wasn’t until a couple of days ago that I realized I was making one of the most expensive mistakes of my online career.

You see – during all that time -my “top performing” ad could have been bringing in over 70% more money.

how to increase ctr adsense

I will tell you exactly WHAT I did and WHY I did it to increase Adsense CTR and give my earnings such a huge boost – so make sure you read every word of this post, because it could easily be one of the most profitable things you’ve ever read.

When are your website visitors ready to click your ads?

If you want to increase adsense ctr and make the most out of your ads, you first need to understand how your typical website visitor behaves.

For example – let’s say one of my visitors discovered my blog because he googled “water fasting for weight loss“.

As soon as he arrives at my blog, his attention is focused almost exclusively on what he was looking for – information on water fasting.

He doesn’t care about that wide banner ad that I used to have at the top of my blog.He doesn’t care about that square ad I used to display at the top-right of my blog – he doesn’t even care about that ad I put in the beginning of every article (even though the article text “floated” to the side of the ad).

All he really wants – in those first critical moments upon entering my blog – is to satisfy his strong curiosity,that made him type in his original search query in the first place…and until he’s ready to focus on something else, he probably won’t be too trigger-happy to click on your ads.

Just think about it – all those “above the fold” ads (the ads that are displayed above or at the beginning of the article) are trying to grab the attention of your visitors as soon as they arrive at your website.

But doesn’t it make more sense to place those ads at the points in the visitor’s journey – where most of your visitors are ready to leave your website?

I’ll just let the numbers speak for themselves.

How to increase adsense CTR by more than 72%?

Before I could test my theory, I had to develop a custom plugin that would insert the Adsense code right before the second heading (the first subheading) of all my articles.

After the plugin was finished, here’s how my top performing ad looked like:

increase Adsense CTR

Why did I place my first ad right before the first subheading (the first <h2> element) in an attempt to increase Adsense CTR?

Because I figured – after my typical visitor reads the article introduction, he’ll arrive at an important crossroad.

Maybe his initial curiosity will already be satisfied (because his most important questions were answered in the article intro)…maybe he’ll realize my article doesn’t have the information he was looking for…or maybe, he’ll simply get bored after reading those first couple of paragraphs.

Now, many readers will definitely want to read the rest of the article…but for those who are about to leave my blog – this would be the perfect “hotspot” to offer them an ad to click on.

And boy was I right.

How much more Adsense money could you be earning?

Here are the numbers from my Adsense account:

How to increase adsense CTR


Now, your own click-through-rates might be different – because CTR highly depends on your content, the kind of visitors you’re getting to your website and the niche you’re in…but that’s not the point here.

The point is – I have been unable to increase the CTR for my top performing ad beyond 0,6% CTR until now. But with this latest test, I have been easily able to break past 1% CTR.

For a more “plastic” representation of just how much more money that is…take a look at this screenshot of my Adsense earnings:

how to increase Adsense CTR

The lowest (longest) green bar shows the earnings for my top performing ad – while the other green bars show the earnings for the rest of my ads.

My last ad beats my formerly top performing ad by 72,8%.

In terms of actual money – that’s $172.8 instead of $100 from that one ad (each and every month).Or $17,280 instead of $10,000 – if you own a high-traffic website.

Two highly-profitable code modifications I did to increase Adsense CTR

There are two things I changed about the default (responsive) Adsense code – and both helped me increase my Adsense earnings way beyond what I thought I was possible:

how to increase ctr adsense

I changed the data-ad-format attribute from “auto” to “rectangle” to exclude those wide banner ads that take up very little vertical space + I added “margin-bottom: 5em” to create a little more vertical space after the ad.

I did both these things to “push down” the articletext – to separate the rest of the article from the introduction text.

Nothing too extreme, just to make my ad stand out a little bit more – making it a little more obvious for my visitors to click on it…

What else can you do to increase Adsense CTR and earn even more from your ads?

Use keywords with higher adwords bidding on your content. I understand most of us blog and just flow in our writing. But keywords help Google filter the ads on your blog.

Keywords with higher Adwords bidding (Cost per click) will provoke more relevant ads and pay you more on clicks.

Use the giant 300 x 600 large skyscraper ads. These are large enough to attract eyeballs and clicks.

You may want to use WordPress plugins to get your ad units properly placed if you a WordPress blog . I do not actually use any but take a look at Q2W3 plugin.

Display Network Vs Search Network

If you are an advertiser who wants to tap into the vast coverage of Google, try the display network option of Google Adword. The search network option actually displays ads on the Google search results

Are there some Adsense alternatives

Of course there are many advertising networks out there to make money online. Though most of these revenue sharing platforms make it quite difficult to get involved, most of them have a higher pay per click rate than Google.

Let’s see some of these ad networks:

1 – Mediavine

This is one of the most common Adsense alternative to diversify your income streams and earn extra cash from your personal blog or your own website.

2 – Ezoic

If you don’t find it easy with Google adsense, you may want to try out Ezoic to increase your ad revenue. They are more flexible and with a more attractive RPM. Note however that this, like other pay per click advertising platforms are not get rich quick schemes.

3 – Media.net

This is another Ppc advertising network in high demand. It’s run by Yahoo. If you want to make extra money with online advertising and Google Adsense isn’t making things easy, try out this platform.

4 – Chitika

Many people who are rejected by Google Adsense still are confused how to make money online. But Adsense denial isn’t the end of it. Try out Chitka.

5 – Adbrite

Do you have over 100k monthly page views, you should try out this platform. It’s one of the platforms with very attractive RPM.

Simple, but powerful suggestion, Rok.
I use Adsense on a couple of my niche sites, with some decent monthly earnings.
I’ll make an A/B test placing the ad in the spot you suggested.

Thanks for having Rok, Enstine.
Have a good week, you both!

    Rok Sprogar

    Thanks, Erik, let us know how well it worked for you…

    And Enstine, thank you for publishing my scribblings on your bllg! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Oloyede Jamiu

Hey Rok,

Thank you for writing this article about how you boost your Adsense earnings.

Its great to read this from you. Although i don’t use adsense on my main blog, i’m using it on my tech blog.

I’m sure many bloggers would find your writeup very useful.

Take care and have a nice day ahead.


Gautam Sehgal

Amazing article I must say. I am surely going to work on it and will let you know once I m able to reach the goal.

Ankit Kumar Singla

Hi Rok,

Thanks for sharing this great idea.
Sometimes back I also wrote an article about how to increase adsense income on ShoutMeLous blog where I talked about adding adsense ads in between the content.

Using this method you can get adsense ads related to your keywords because google try to find the text around to show the relevant ads.

Your strategy is also looking great to get higher CTR and I will surely give it a try.


    Rok Sprogar

    That makes a lot of sense – I suppose Google would choose ads based on the proximity of certain words – so it makes sense to throw in a couple of high-CPC keywords as well (especially if they’re contextually related to the blog/article).

    Will have to try this as well…thnx


Simple and powerful tip.

Thanks for sharing.

So, when are you going to make your custom plugin available to the public?

comment via https://www.mmo.ng

    Rok Sprogar

    Our plugin is for Joomla – and we probably won’t be turning it into a fully-fledged plugin and make it available for sale…besides, Enstine has already developed a plugin that I think can help you achieve the same effect with your ads…if I’m not mistaken it’s called the Cashdonator Plugin…please check with Enstine


      Okay Rok.

      Sure, I have CashDonator plugin. I also recommend it for others to use.

Reginald Chan

Hey Enstine!

Powerful blog post man. Since I’m having a few blogs, I am going to try this out. Tempted and who knows right?

Bookmarked this as well for future reference. Top notch!

Shabarish Balaji

Thnx rox and also enstine for this info on increasing ctr. I just got an AdSense account and hope this article help me in increasing my earnings.


supreeth bharadwaj

welcome to enstine’s blog,
first of all adding my point adsense CTR mainly depends on engaged visitors, which indeed a major factor,
otherwise this was the post i was looking for after my approval
thanks Enstine


Thanks Rok, for powerful post on how to increase adsense earning.
Currently now, i don;t have adsense on my site but with this information at my hand, success is my in coming days.

Shreya Sharma

I am using adsense on one of my website. I had a poor CTR due to click- fraud plugin. I hope will be able to increase my adsense CTR at the end of the day :0
Thanks for sharing such a wonderful post ๐Ÿ™‚

    Rok Sprogar

    sad to hear that, but you really need to be careful with the google adsense terms of use – what I did is well within the official google adsense guidelines – so no worries there ๐Ÿ˜‰

Jackson Nwachukwu

Hey Rok,

That was a wonderful article you have written. Lately, I lost interest in Adsense because I wasn’t really making enough with it. Though, I really have not been serious with it as I only serve just one banner at the moment on my blog but I still desire to make the best out of it.

Now I have looked into your strategy and have seen it’s something that can help me get started again so I am going to use it this time around.

I already have Enstine’s Cash donator plugin and it’s one awesome plugin I can talk of. I used it to place adsense codes in few articles I was targeting for CTR.

Once again, thanks Rok for sharing this wonderful piece.

To my bro Enstine Emeka (African) keep rocking the blogophere bro, I really feel your hand work offline and online ๐Ÿ™‚

Both of you should have a wonderful day and week ahead.


    Rok Sprogar

    Unless you own (or are an affiliate for) a high-converting product that already makes you a lot of $$$ – Adsense, or any other kind of ads – can be a great source of income…

    And to maximize that income you need two things – 1. position your ads properly and 2. rank for high-cpc, low competition keywords…but that’s a story for another article ๐Ÿ˜‰

Rok Sprogar

I’m sorry for not responding to each and every individual post…didn’t want Enstine to think I was some kind of blog comment spammer, lol ๐Ÿ™‚

but I do want to thank you all for your kind words here

I just hope what I discovered will bring you at least as much of an earnings boost than it brought me ๐Ÿ˜‰

Good luck with your online and offline endeavors.


    Enstine Muki

    Hi Rok,
    That’s great having you around and answering these questions from my readers. First, thanks for such an awesome revelation that will certainly improve on our earnings.

    Kindly go ahead and respond to everyone that has dropped a comment. That’s the spirit and I’m sure they’ll all be feeling really great to here from you personally ๐Ÿ˜‰


one thing i want to say here is that Estine Muki has been a great Tutor and Mentor to me,i have been following him for a while now and i see the honesty of true blogging and a true sense of allowing people to know the key methods to there business and how they can leverage properly on their skills,adsense has been my main target but i always feel down when its comes to their ctr but now this is a wonderful idea to skyrocket my adsense earning by simply following this great example above thanks a lot God Bless You More BRO.

    Rok Sprogar

    yes, and please let us now how well it worked…


Hey Rok & Enstine,

This is a rock solid information here on Enstine’s blog. Thanks for the quick heads up! However i have been seeking approval into the so-called Adsense community for a while facing rejection.

Can you check out my blog to see where am going wrong? Hopefully a link to one of my latest post will show up cos Enstine has commenluv enabled on his blog.

A big thank you to both of you for bring this topic up.



    Rok Sprogar

    I took a look at your blog – and I can’t think of a single reason why they would reject you at Adsense – you have a nice alexa rank, google has indexed you properly…I got approved at a time when my blog was far less popular than yours is today, so this is really weird…

    Did you try contacting for an explanation about why they didn’t approve you?

    Sorry, I wish I could be of more help…

Sylviane Nuccio

Hi Rok and Enstine,

Even though I do not have Adsense on my blog, your post is very valuable to understanding what a difference the placement of an add on a post could make.

Even without Adsense adds, I am going to implement some type of advertising for my own business within my posts, as I have seen some people do it lately. I feel that’s pretty cool and doesn’t disturb the reader who doesn’t want to click, but just keep on reading.

Thank you for your insight, and even though I do not need to lose weight ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ll check out your blog.

    Rok Sprogar

    Thank you Sylviane…no matter what ad provider you go with – the high CTR “sweet spots” should be the same – at least IMHO. ๐Ÿ™‚

Shamsudeen Adeshokan

Hi Rok,

I learn some lessons here despite not being an Adsense fan and not even using it on any blog at the moment.

The above the fold or ads on the sides of an article just within the first paragraph like you said, are not going to do much. Even affiliates products ads in these places doesn’t see good CTR as I have experience.

Thanks for sharing your knowledge with us.

    Rok Sprogar

    exactly, and personally I think Google is being really funny here…

    1. the web spam team (with Matt Cutts at the helm) is telling us that sites with ads above the fold will rank worse than sites with ads above the fold (especially if those ads “push the content below the fold)

    2. the Adsense team, on the other hand – is recommending a lot of ad positions that are above the fold

    But official recommendations aside – my numbers speak for themselves…and if I can get them without having any ads above the fold (and avoid any ranking “downgrades” because of that) – than everything works out perfectly. ๐Ÿ™‚

segun balogun

don’t just know what to say , i am speechless.
you’ve said it all.
nice article , keep it up.

Victor Ome Umukoro

Awesome Article But I wonder when will the plugin be compatible for public usage

    Rok Sprogar

    Enstine, can you perhaps help Victor out with your plugin? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Does your plugin support these ad positions – because we just modified an existing joomla plugin – meaning we can’t release it to the public without violating copyright issues + most users are on wp anyway…


Actually I was so frustrated when I hardly earned up to a dollar on daily basis on my Adsense. Though is a well written post, but I think instead of just emphasizing on Ads positioning, you should have mentioned that Bloggers/Publishers should work on their site SEO.
Going back to my inability to earn a dollar daily. I was able to figure it our that I need more website traffic. I started solving thew Website traffic with BroadedNet Plugin, but I was so amazed when I started using Facebook Adverts and Google Adwords. At least my earning now increasing……
But about this plugin you mentioned in your Article up there, then I will give it a shoot and try and see the result

Nice Work…..

    Rok Sprogar

    yes, you’re absolutely right – CTR is a relative metric…telling us the number of clicks for every 100 visitors…and while a high CTR represents an excellent foundation you still need to generate traffic to your website…

    EARNINGS = TRAFFIC X CTR (roughly)

    the more traffic (and the higher the CTR) the merrier ๐Ÿ™‚


I’ve implemented the same method in my website and the result is that my CTR has increase considerably, another advantage with this is that when you searching from a mobile device your ads will be visible and thus increasing your chances to increase revenue. Thank you for such a great information.

    Rok Sprogar

    I haven’t even thought of that…on mobile, those wide banners and the ads that run in a separate column…would never be displayed – or would be displayed way below the text

    your ads definitely need to be where your visitors’ eyes are ๐Ÿ˜‰

    glad to hear it worked for you…

I. C. Daniel

A/B tests is the best thing you can do to increase Adsense earnings.
From my experience I can recommend wrapping text around google ads and put color to the ad something near to site color scheme.

If that doesn’t increase your CTR nothing else will ๐Ÿ˜€

    Rok Sprogar

    that’s just my experience…but when I wrapped the text around my ads, the results were much worse – I think it’s because in this way, the ads don’t create any “vertical” distance between the text (because the text “wraps” them) – but if you’re getting different numbers from your split testing, then you should definitely do that ๐Ÿ™‚

    and I’d definitely be careful with making your ads look like your website (or the other way around), because, according to the adsense guidelines you should not:
    – Format ads so that they become indistinguishable from other content on that page.
    – Format site content so that it is difficult to distinguish it from ads.
    …if they discover the violation, they could suspend the account :S

Sherman Smith

Hey Rok and Enstine,

Very interesting! As soon as Enstine posted the upcoming of this article on facebook, I got intrigued. It looks like a simple thing to do.

I have read a couple of posts that the best way to get subscribers, and in this case improve your CTR, was to place the ad or optin box in an area towards the end of the post or in a popup right before they leave.

This is definitely a smart move and will have to implement this! Thanks for the share!

    Rok Sprogar

    From the Adsense guidelines:
    Publishers are encouraged to experiment with a variety of placements and ad formats. However, AdSense code may not be placed in inappropriate places such as pop-ups, emails or software.


Interesting observation. I’ve had this noted.
Will update with result on how this worked for me. Thanks

Rabin Mistri

Hi Rok,
This is a wonderful post man! Adsense is one of the basic income source for most of the online marketers and everyone also tries to increase their Adsense income like me :p

This is a great case study of increasing Adsense CTR by just placing ads after the intro part of a blog post.

Thanks man for providing such a great article ๐Ÿ™‚

MSI Sakib

Hey Muki,
Congrats and Thanks!
Really ad placement plays great role in CTR to increase earning. Let’s try my luck …… lol

    Rok Sprogar

    luck has nothing to do with it…just a lot of adsense testing ๐Ÿ™‚


Hey Rok,
Thanks for the short and precise explanation of how to increase CTR by placing ad after the intro.. I’ll go and look at mine again and see if it’s not already like that.
Thanks Enstine for sharif meaningful posts with us… Since you are the plugin expert, please can you develop one for liking people’s comments? Honestly, I liked some comments above but was reaching out to click a LIKE button (LOL!)
Have a great day

    Rok Sprogar

    yes, Enstine! ๐Ÿ˜‰ if you did that, I could just like all the comments here with a single click – because people really have responded well to what you helped me share with them…

Great post thanks for sharing, however i think if you use the same strategy mentioned here not with adsense but with affiliate ads you will certainly make more profits

    Rok Sprogar

    yep, the psychology never changes – if you want more clicks, subscribes, whatever…this should work

Satish Kumar Ithamsetty

Dear Enstine Muki,
Congrats and Thanks!

Ad placement is the great idea to change in CTR to best earnings. i will check it now…

swaraj nandedkar

Hello Rok,
thanks for revealing this awesome trick here.
adsense is the great advertising revenue program, but not many peoples are able to make money out of it.
your suggestions will help them to make money by applying your trick.

Thanks for this post again!

Bishnu Dev

It seems pretty good. I was using my ads at the End of the article and one at banner. Now i got it changed to the perfect place. And they are performing better than before.
Thanks ๐Ÿ˜‰

Charlotte King

I have a couple of niche sites and am looking into using ad sense. Thanks for the info and I think that I will try CTR.

AS Prince

Must say, It’s a Great post the way you are explaining what you want to say and the matter you select to post and explain all are just awesome. And the way to increase or boost AdSense earning you described in this post is working like a boss. But if we use text link ads after ending of first paragraph then there will be more increase in CTR. What Say?

Edi Dominic

Hi Rok, your post rocked indeed as I read it, Ad placements is a major factor every publisher needs to learn, if we may know Adsense does teach us via their official blog once a while “the best practices” to improve earning, you went further to expose things and taught us well. Despite I use Blogger, not WP which would have been more easier, I will still find my way to apply your Tips to boost my adsense CTR. I pray it works.
Thanks again Rok. ๐Ÿ™‚

Sometimes bloggers need to find other adsense strategies because earning from this platform provides the highest CPC but it is tough to optimize the location and outlook of the ads the right way. Great tips that I am definitely going to follow.

Muhammad Imran Nazish

Modifying adsense code will not lead to ban?? I have read at many sites that never modify AdSense code. Is it safe????

Shahnawaz Sadique


This is indeed a awesome article. I tried many thing on my blog but when I posted my Adsense in the middle of the article , I get some good return ๐Ÿ™‚ .

What I figure out is , Google check keywords around your ads to place right ads on your page. BY the way I am going to try this method also and ll let you know the results ๐Ÿ™‚


Hello Rok and Enstine,

I would like to highlight a few points here:

1.) You manipulated the adsense code, well you have taken a huge risk with that since it is strictly prohibited (as per my knowledge).

2.) Placing the ad above the first sub heading: Yeah, this one is more prone to perform better than others because there is a majority of visitors who don’t even care to read the introduction and head over to the main points directly and this sub heading is the beginning of those points.

3.) One more position you can try: Ad near the image, you know images tend to attract a lot of visitors, if the image is catchy enough then there is a possibility the visitor will look at it for a few seconds. For placing ads below images you can try the Quick Adsense plugin which lets you place the ad below any image in the article.

Since this is Blogging and Ad placements so there is no guarantee that the same thing will work for everyone but experiments should be done for sure, who knows what comes out better just like it did for you.


Ogunrinola Adam Hiidee

Hi Rok, you have came up with an amazing post. After going through the post I now reason along you that placing the AdSense ads after first introductory paragraph would yield more clicks and high CTR. Would apply this on my blog and am sure it should work for me as it does for you.


I also used the adesene a few years back and it was very beneficial for me but I stopped using it because I have some better ways to earn money i.e affiliate marketing.

Guys, you can earn money by creating niche relevant affiliate sites and can earn upto 10k a day.

Julian Sakanee

Hey Rok. Enstine.

Awesome stuff. I like it!

I’m planning on starting a new project in a smaller niche. And there aren’t many affiliate offers for it, so Adsense will probably be a big thing for it.

And what you’ve shared couldn’t have come at a better time. ๐Ÿ™‚

So thanks, man.

Where would I contact you if I have a question? I didn’t catch your site name (maybe I’m that blind).

Anyway, I’m out.


Sumit Thakur

Hey Ensitne, I always face the issue of poor ctr and really I loss a lot of money due to this. I will try this trick on my blogs and hopefully it will work well. And yes again you nailed it man ๐Ÿ™‚ great work ๐Ÿ™‚


Wow, what a nice spot to place my ads. I think I’ve learnt something good today by checking my mail …Luckily, it was enstinemukis blog mail.

Thanks for this awesome post bro. I’ve modified my ads placement asap – waiting for improvements…

Subha Sadiq

Hi Rok|Enstine,

That’s really intelligent trick for boosting Adsense CTR and pocketing more revenue from our blogs. Thanks for sharing, surely going to help many bloggers complaining low adsense earnings.


Subha Sadiq

Tanmoy Das

Adsense is major income source of my blog and its quite interesting to make it large. Thanks for writing up this nice tutorial. Going it implement it on my blog.

Naveen Kumar

Hey Rok and Enstine Bro,
Thanks for this awesome guide as well as plugin. Everyone is looking for the way to earn more and more money from their website but there are few reason that they are not able to earn much even they have good amount of traffic on the website and the main reason is not placing ads on the appropriate positions. As you suggest in the article placing the article in below the title and sub heading is good.
I would like to add that if you are adding an ad unit on the end of the content, remove all the links like related post from the end of the post.
I am sure it will also help.

With Regards,


Hi Rok, Hi Enstine,

Rok, I have your site opened up in another tab. I’ll peruse through it as soon as I’m done commenting here. I’m a fitness professional and my blog focuses on healthy living and personal development, so I’m excited to see what you write about (especially since I agree about the connection between the emotions and the behavior in regard to food).

I had every eating disorder there is and weighed over 200 pounds, so I get it.

I’ll admit that I do have a few ads here and there in some of my posts, I don’t have a lot of experience with using them.

I did read the entire post and I’ll have to keep it bookmarked because one time through won’t be enough for me. Writing comes easy, the tech stuff – well, not as much ๐Ÿ˜‰

In the meantime, I can appreciate anything that will help me to utilize the space on my blog to be more profitable, so I thank (both of) you for sharing this info with me.

Kamlesh Sharma

Hello Muki. I find this post interesting. I know that ads between paragraph can indeed increase impression and CTR, but I didnt know to that much.

Hi, Thank you for your Information. However, based on my experience as a blogger, I found the below.
1) Content is Major Factor and Google will love the unique content.
2) Keywords/Tags/Some basic SEO tips including Back links are very important to drive the organic traffic.
3) CPC depends on your nitch/topic.

One of my Indian blog is making $1000 to $1200 per month for 200,000 visitors month other blogs are making $100 to $ 150. I am using all ad spaces. Some people are saying, using less ads will increase the revenue..I am not sure about it when Google itself providing the facility. Since my inception of the blog, I have placed ads in the same place by utilizing all the ad space,even I know my blog is eligible for matched content ads. What I observed is click rate varies daily and the revenue fluctuates. Actually my blog started earning from $50/month to 1000 month in 1 year 5 months as content is updated once in 2 days. My feeling is rather concentrating on ad placement, work on content, organic SERP. Google knows about your content value. If you donโ€™t have content and have ads placed ..itโ€™s hard to earn, if you have content and even if you donโ€™t place ads correctly, your income may be little less ( provided you don not violate the terms.).

Happy blogging!! Cheers!!!!


These adsense tips are pretty nice, I;m going to try them.

@ Enstine Do you recommend to use the 3 ads space of adsense?

Vishal Jain

I am getting considerable traffic on my blog, but getting very less CTR. Got good information from this article. Just one doubt, isn’t modifying the ad code is against the Adsense policy? May be its a silly question, but I have read somewhere that the ad code should not be modified/altered so.v


I just started doing blogging and i am getting CTR around 7-8% but i didn’t place any ad till now. I am going to apply these setting on my blog and will check my earning boost!!!! Thanks for your help and sharing this wonderful information with us.


Good article
Could you tell me how do I change the ‘auto’ to rectangle? Where can I find the settings for that?

salman noorani

Great post will surely give it a try. But i have one doubt that if we edit ad code by google. Is it risky for our account.


First of all thank you so much for this fantastic article. It’s going to help so much to understand the money making tips for all… The truth is that many people ignore high CPC long tail words and join the masses in competing for seed words that arenโ€™t worth fighting for.

While blogging, sometimes I also get high click from $10 to $50, Recently I have got $60.40 from 3 clicks, The Avg per click cost is $20.13, and the country is Netherlands, I guess there are some ads like CPA networks which pays $20 per lead for pin submits etc, good news is, my traffic are from 3rdworlds! Lol!

But I must tell you… Nowadays to get ranking on high CPC keyword is very tough, we have to use only the long tail CPC keywords in our posts, and it will drive more AdSense earnings, youโ€™ll net get this high CPC all the times! But if you want to get high CPC, try to choose high paying niche! E.g., cancer, payday loans, forex, hosting, etc! But if you site about blogging, Adsense money, SEO, etc! Trust me youโ€™ll get crap!

It is also necessary that traffic should come through organic search only. If I drive traffic of USA and UK through social media to my website on keywords having high CPC then shall I will get the same commission as through organic search or will it differ.

How much adsense CTR is considered good and how much is too low? I am getting less than 0.5% for my blog. Is it bad?

Mahendra Nikum

yes! its great way to increase the ctr but I actually add my first ad before the content and its possibly great profit for me.

Sahil kumar

Thank you for your Information. However, based on my experience as a blogger, I have noticed a high CTR on downloads niche blog and a very low CTR on a blogging niche blog. But the CPC is more on blogging niche and less on downloads and tech niche.

Some people are saying, using fewer ads will increase the revenue. I am not sure about it when Google itself providing the facility. Since my inception of the blog, I have placed ads in the same place by utilizing all the ad space, even I know my blog is eligible for matched content ads. If you donโ€™t have content and have ads placed, itโ€™s hard to earn. If you have content and even if you donโ€™t place ads correctly, your income may be little less.


Hey Enstine, Very informative article, thanks for sharing. Iโ€™m applying each and every strategy of yours on my site. I really need to try red for my site. I would like to share one more tip here, just use link ads too with hard colors like Red.

Vrisha Malan

Adsense Optimization is pretty interesting for me. If we concentrate on conversion rate optimization along with SEO, I guess in less time we can improve revenue generating funda of our web marketing efforts. The best way to improve Adsense revenue is to write content on high CPC keywords, but such articles will not perform well in organic search because of high competition. We can drive traffic through low competition keywords to blog and include high paying keywords link within the article; so that visitors would click on high paying keywords link and redirect to high CPC article within a blog.

For me, itโ€™s just studying with ad placements and experimenting with font size and colors to mix in with the content that works. I know that Google Adsense optimization is critical to earning from blogging. But it is very ugly to use 336×280 at the top of blog post because it diverts reader attention. So I always keep 728×90 or 468×60 at the upper part of the header.

CPC/CPM/PPC is the most crucial factor if your blogs main monetization factor of Google Adsense. Iโ€™m practicing very hard to increase my Adsense earnings because they are very low in my blogs. Iโ€™m working with keywords in articles, and I’m praying I can get something more from it. Anyways its an excellent article about increasing Adsense earnings. You have discussed all the key points for increasing CPC of Adsense Ads. Thanks!


Hi enstine,
thanks for this trick now my blog ads looks attractive, till date i dont know about this modification. Now i have edited my ad sense ads. lets wait and see changes in CTR.

Great article, i’ve been considering adding google Adsense to my blog recently. It is however a relatively new website. How much traffic would you say is needed for Adsense to be a worthwhile source of income?

Canelo Forum

Hi Rok,

I learn some lessons here despite not being an Adsense fan and not even using it on any blog at the moment.

The above the fold or ads on the sides of an article just within the first paragraph like you said, are not going to do much. Even affiliates products ads in these places doesnโ€™t see good CTR as I have experience.

Thanks for sharing your knowledge with us.
