    Hi There!

    I have a website related to wrestling. The site is: http://wrestlerspeaks.com/
    SEMrush
    The site is around a year old and though, visits are not huge, it is getting some visits. I applied to AdSense and got approved. However, the click rates have been poor. Till now, around 4500 page impressions and only 9 clicks. I provided the site URL in this thread so that you can visit the site and if possible, advise me on the ad placement or anything you believe that I am doing wrong.

    Waiting for some really helpful advices.

    Thanks for reading.

    There is only one add placed on your homepage, where as google allow 3 add units.

    You're not utilizing them properly, add 1 leader board in header, and footer as well.

    You do not have a "privacy policy". You will get banned for that.

    Thanks for your advice. But, I heard that Google allows only 3 ad units for a website. I am using 2 in single pages, won't it be more than 3 when I use Google Adsense codes in Header and Footer as well?

    I never heard of this rule that to display Google Adsense ads, I need a privacy policy. Can you please elaborate a bit?
