AdSense Best Traffic Sources
AdSense best traffic sources are search engines!
AdSense ads perform way better when your traffic is from search engines.
Also interest-based advertising might not perform very well if you are getting more direct traffic instead traffic from search engines.
Many people complain about low CPC and low Adsense income even though they generate millions of impressions per month. This is mostly due to a low CPC and bad traffic sources.
Start targeting your traffic from countries like the U.S.A, Canada, United Kingdom, germany. This results in getting a higher and better cost per click (CPC) rate which is increasing your total earning.
AdSense Best Ad Types
Something i still hear often is the myth that image or display ads convert better.
By blocking a certain ad type or ad category you decrease the competition on your ads. As a result this also decreases the CPI (cost per impressions) and the CPM (cost per thousand impressions) of your ads and you will earn with every click.
So i prefer to use both ad types on every page – text & display ads together.
Let me explain this more.
AdSense is working like a stock exchange:
Advertisers bid for your ad space in a real-time auction to be listed on your website with their ads. The advertiser who is offering the most for an ad spot will be listed on your site.
If you do not offer image and text ads the bids will be lower because not all advertisers offer both adverts and it makes no sense for an advertiser to bid for a text ad if he has only created a few image banners.
On the other hand if you offer both ad types you can be sure that most of your page views are populated with a valid ad.
Do you have any other opinion or made different experiences with WP QUADS?
