Adsense Ad Unit Text only

    I have my setting as Adsense Ad Unit Text only.
    SEMrush
    But i received Google email twice to ask me change my setting to display both text/image ads.

    I don't believe in their claim that i can make more money doing so.

    What do you think ?

    Don't worry, google is automatically sending emails to you. If you do so, google can deside which ads will perform better on your site and which (text or image) ad will make more money for both you and google. I recommend you to try both (only text, text & image) for week or two and monitor the results. You will get the answer.

    You should believe it because image ads get more clicks.

    Hi Laceygirl. It's not always true that image ads get more clicks. It depends on What ads is being displayed, how it is relative to the interest of visitor and how eye catching it is. If title in text ads is more relative and eye catching, that can also get clicked more.

    Another reason: Image ad is only one ad per ad unit covering full space while text ads show multiple ads increasing the number of chances to be get clicked. If reader is not interested in first text ad, he may get interest in second or the third one. It does not happens with image ads.

    Adsense will auto-send you this kind of email because they can have more "option" or saying more type of ads to display, you can just ignore it. To display both image/text is better if your website do not have sufficient keyword (mean no ads was show due to no keyword matching), then you shall consider use both image/text.

    By the way, i suggest you to try on both text only for 2~3 weeks, and then try text/image ads for 2~3 weeks. After that, you can compare the result and use the one giving your better earning

    this depend to the site probably. arcade sites prefer to have image ads but other sites that contains explanations to users use text ads which usually works.

    Well said by lifeplayer. You don't have to panic nor follow everything Google suggests to do your site as long as you believe or you have already tried out all the possible
    options and found out the best format for your site.

    Google will not ban if you don't change. Just do the research for knowing the maximum potential.
    Try the text ads for one week and the image ads for the next week and the both option for the third week.
