WoW! A Placement That Works Too Good To Be True!

    Hey,

    I have a World of Warcraft blog and yesterday I changed the theme to a 3 column layout from the default one and I can't believe how many clicks I am getting.

    I am sure it is the placement of the Google ads and not the theme so much.

    Warcraft Guides

    Take a look because I really think it is as good as you can get with ad placement.

    I have seen other blogs with ads just like that but never tried it until now.

    Works a treat it seems :cool:

    My page CTR is 5.6%

    I really can't believe I have been missing out until now, if you cache my page you will see how the site looked before.

    Which gets the most clicks, the left ad block of the middle ad block?

    Yes, your placement is fine. Some kind of "in-your-face" advertising. I could see the ads straight away.

    I only use URL channels so am not sure which gets more clicks but I really have a feeling it is the towe ad.

    I don't really know what ctr is since channels are not working and design is fairly new :)

    I would say its the wow niche. There are so many advertisers that you can get a full page of ads on each specific thing about wow you are writing. on my wow sites I get my highest ctr too. If only it was highest paying clicks :)

    you put this word in red "Warcraft" above your skyscraper ads which I think is against the google's rule cause this word will misleading people to think that the ads is the content of your site. :)
