    People click ads that are relevant to content. It depends on the type of learning style the person has, some enjoy factual quick info while others enjoy long drawn out essays.

    Better place relevant ads on the site, which is also related to your current niche.

    I would think that most visitors click on ads because the ad looks like something that will meet that visitors need.

    If your website is built for people, give them what they're looking for & people will stick around long enough to click on your ads.

    If your website is nothing other than a MFA site with no human value. . . then I wouldn't know what to tell you.

    Good one.

    A website that is an MFA (Made For Adsense) shouldn't be called a site at all.

    Better focus on something that you think many people will arise or be interested which means more traffic and the larger chance to have Adsense clicks. ;)

    The more content the better, it allows for better targeted ads which people will be more willing to click on.

    A single page should not be overly long i.e. no more than 800 words or so. You should break up very long articles.

    It should not be a very long though it should provide the required information to the user and ads should be appropriately placed and you will get clicks on relevant ads.

    Having interesting and relevant ads makes them click. Hard to control.

    Length of content isn't as important as relevance of ads and the reason the visitor landed on your site to begin with.

    MFA is thrown around to loosely these days. I build sites for PPC revenue. Doesn't necessarily mean the site is low quality though. It's just another business model at the end of the day.

    Lots of content is good for the search engines and if you place your ads correctly within the text then the click through ratio can be extremely good.

    It depends on a person, if I throughly enjoyed your novel I would like to know more about what I read. A nice little ad block at the end of the novel would do it's job quite well for me.

    That is an example, I wouldn't do that because I read facts in note form.
    But it depends on the person and what your writing about.

    Yeah, it depends from person to person. I personally like short but effective articles that is interesting and makes me read on. I hate to read books and novels, got very little patience :(

    There is two sides to this:

    1) a minimal page with few or no other links and just a small bit of content tends to get more clicks.

    2) a 'real' site with lots of content is much more likely to get return visitors and organic backlinks.

    So you have to decide what your goal is. For ppc campaigns I just do a quckie MFA page and these tend to convert decently.

    For SEO I make actual sites with a bit more content and these also convert decently.

    This style is good for a decent income (200 bucks a day for me) but you will never make the big money this way. For that you need a 'real' site and lots of organic traffic / viral marketing etc. Plentyoffish.com is a great example.

    i imagine they click on adds which interest them... or sometimes very rarely because the add is very well suited on the page

    i think the more the content more target add and better click rate.

    My theory is that they won't come back to your site if you don't have a lot of content since the ads don't change that often.

    A lot of good content. Kind of obvious but it works heaps well.
