Thoughts on putting AdSense ads in posts
« on: August 23, 2012, 07:40:28 PM »
Now that I am starting to get some traffic on my blog, I have been thinking about ways to use AdSense.  I have had one click on the ad in the sidebar.  I have been thinking about putting ads in the posts.

I am thinking that would get more clicks, but I don't want it to be overly annoying either.

Has anyone tried putting ads in blog posts?

I tried it, and tried varying sizes and shapes. I found that my page views went down, and my bounce rate went up. I then removed them, just left the one adsense ad in my header rotation. It's not converting very well either.

Thanks for the feedback.  I think I will hold off then.  I may try an ad at the bottom of the post once I am getting some more traffic through my site to see if it helps/hurts.  It is tough to tell what difference it would make now since me messing with the layout of my blog is a large part of my traffic currently.
