Adsense, a new way for almost anyone online to make a profit. All you have to do is to get cleared by Google, put some code on your web pages. And wait for someone to come and click! Hey, wait a minute.
You can't have popups on page. Ok, no problem. Moreover, you can't tell anyone you have an ad from Google on page. You can't write about it, point to it or tell someone to click on it.
Also, remember that you are not allowed to make a traffic pulling page, with no other way to leave it beside ad.
You must have more links on page (now what, will anyone notice it?).
So how can you help up your click conversion rates?
1.Placement. Do not hide your ad. Put ad to left or somewhere near top to ensure that anyone will see it without any scrolling.
2.Colors. There are several schools, each one pulling their way. One way is to contrast ad as much as possible (but still possible to read it). The second one is to blend in ad with your site as much as possible.
Click conversion rates
People say that a click through of 5-10% is very good, while others are happy with 3-5%. I have pages reaching 30% click through and they have several product and affiliate links, plus sales copy for products.
