    This is not spam & I am not selling anything but i feel compelled to share this with you guys. I read a thread here 3 nights ago and the guy was saying how he was getting under $2 a day with adsense. He changed his ads to mostly large or medium rectangles and made sure they blended into the color scheme of the page to make it look like part of the actual site. He also said to put them smack in the middle of your page. In addition he obviously drives as much traffic as he can to his site via social marketing etc. So I figured I averaged under $2 a day and I really had nothing to lose than to try his suggestion. It seemed reasonable. I did the change to half of my pages late morning when about a third of my daily traffic has already visited. By the end of that day which was yesterday (June 4th 2008) I was at $7.77 So I was very pleased as you can imagine. Today (June 5th 2008) I am currently at $10.76 with a CTR of 4.8%. My CTR before that was hardly ever over 3%. I imagine these last few days are not a fluke. I hope this helps anyone who reads this and tries it. If you want to see which site I did it for its the models site in my signature. www.mandarichmodels.com

    But i don't think so that we can place adds near images, may be your account can get banned if google catch this . Correct me if i am wrong but it is against tos that we can't place adds near images .

    Hi nice site.
    As others have warned, Some ads are a bit close to images.

    But also I noticed that your outbound links and a lot of internal links open in a new window, nothing wrong with that, but every time a new window opens, it refreshes the page with the link on, which in turn refreshes the Google ads, and you can also be banned for that. (I think they call it artificially increasing page impressions)
    take care.
    BTW cool music.

    EDIT. I couldn't see one so I thought I would just add... If you haven't already you also need to put a privacy policy on any of your sites that have adsense.

    Cheers
    James

    and it is also very dangerous if let your ads color just the same as your pages, you should let your ads look different with you pages.

    You should test wether to blend in the ad units or make them stand out, it will depend on the market which is better for each website.

    I don't believe google has anything against ads being blended in, they did recently change their tos to not allow ads to be added under titles like "Check out todays best offers" and other similar titles.

    This is from adsense tos page at google.com/adsense/support/bin/answer.py?answer=48182&sourceid=aso&subid=ww-ww-et-asui&medium=link&gsessionid=rrE61wI52pg

    Is that what you guys are referring to here? May not place misleading images alongside individual ads

    If so, what exactly does that mean?

    meaning you can't place images next to an ad that would trick the user into thinking:

    a.) The image is related to the ads next to it.
    b.) The Ads are just another image.
    c.) The image acts in a way which would persuade the user to click the ad for any other reason than pure interest in what the ad is selling.

    Basically in a nutshell....don't put images next to ads. Simple as that.

    today it has gone down. i am at 1.62% but because i have been changing my ads around it may be inaccurate because of all the impressions as i check my pages to be looking correct. what makes me suggest that is my $ is about the same as it was yesterday at this time. in the $6-$7 range

    I agree too that we can't place our ads near images. It can easily get ban by google adsense. But making money should take some risk sometimes. hehe

    I feel your pain Bro. IMHO having the ads next to the model pic is innocent enough. However you don't want to take the risk of getting banned.. I could see if the pic said click here etc., etc.


    Rambling~

    I have a myspace layouts site that gets 1000+ unique visitors a day. For the life of me I cant get more then 10 clicks ($1-$2) a day out these kids no matter what I try. I have done everything from ads next to pics,;) link units, changing the template etc. No matter what I do, I can not surpass 10 clicks on a given day. It's very frustrating! I'm starting to think that the myspace crowd is just a flaky and if they don't see what they are looking for, they bounce in like 2.5 seconds. Analytics kinda confirms this.

    It sux because we see these brain dead "make money online" sites/blogs" calming they make tons... The whole time thinking why would anyone in their right mind even give these sites more then quick peek. Yet they have all this click happy traffic.:confused:

    One thing you may want to consider, I know I am, is... If you look at a lot of sites that are doing well with their ads. They are sites that will remove the Top menu, are hide it. Replacing it with a horizontal link unit. The average browser can mistake it for site navigation if done will with colors etc. Thus sending the ctr to a more desired level...;)

    Hope this helps and thanks for letting me share!

    I didn't see any problem with the image by the ads. You just don't want images misleading people into clicking ads. Having say 4 ads and 4 images lining up with each is what G is referring to. Having 1 big image of a model near a ad unit is not misleading at all. Email adsense and ask for their opinion. I think it is just fine.

    i think the most important in adsense in not the kind of ads but traffic is the main key. you could earn more if you've a lot of traffic in your site.

    Site looks good. I missed seeing it before you added the buffer change. And you're ok with color matching, even font matching-as long as you think "harmony" and not "deceive" in page layout.

    That thing about the outgoing links opening in new pages is a new one on me though I didn't see anything on the TOS page so I'm not sure where he got that one.
