    Hey Hamim,

    I can cite you many examples of people who possible have got Google Adsense Approval but still then haven’t even seen a dine. This things happens due to poor planning.

    We have to place banner ads on those are of our blog where we can expect maximum click. We should be careful about the color and size of the ads. Try to put one or two ads on every page.

    I thing if we follow these steps then we can manage to earn huge money from adsense.

    I also like to say thanks to you Hamim for writing this post.

    Have a lovely day.


    • Thanks for your valuable comment Swapnadip Bro.

      Yeah without proper planning we cant earn more. Adding two or more ads on every page is not confirm that you will get lots of clicks, you have to do check every ads performance. Sometime a single ad unit can make same money as 4 other ad unit does.

      keep visiting here my friend.

      Have a nice day.

    Great Post Indeed. All points are really important to get more revenue from Google Adsense. I specially want to say that, Ad placement, Ad Size and ad color is most important to increase CTR within a short period of time.
    Anyway, Thanks for the nice sharing. 🙂

    • I agree with you Ad placement, Ad size and Ad size are the major point. but all points are helps to increase google adsense CTR.

      thanks for your comment Manik Bro.

  • Hi Hamim – You’re right on. I used the AdSense split tester plugin AmpedSense to see which configurations are the best, and I see the biggest gains in placement and size. Color too sometimes. Keep spreadin the word!

    • Welcome to my blog shane Labs 🙂 . Yea… ad color and size gain revenue mainly but sometimes other tips also help.

      Thanks for your comment. Keep Visiting Here. 🙂

  • The position of ads is an important factor that determines whether they will be clicked or not. A good place to place ads is at the top of the page. Fine post here, Hamin.

  • Hello,

    I think sticky ads are not permited by Googla AdSense TOS, am I wrong?

  • Google Adsense is primary earning source for many bloggers but with few tweaks and analyzing we can increase our Adsense earning. I think, Google Adsense earning is decreasing day by day specially from/for Asian countries.

  • Thank you for your Information. However, based on my experience as a blogger, I have noticed a high CTR on downloads niche blog and a very low CTR on a blogging niche blog. But the CPC is more on blogging niche and less on downloads and tech niche.

    Some people are saying, using fewer ads will increase the revenue. I am not sure about it when Google itself providing the facility. Since my inception of the blog, I have placed ads in the same place by utilizing all the ad space, even I know my blog is eligible for matched content ads. If you don’t have content and have ads placed ..it’s hard to earn, if you have content and even if you don’t place ads correctly, your income may be little less…

    Anyways, after reading your post I changed few things on my blog. Those are very useful in increasing my CTR. Now I am getting CTR 3% to 4%. That feels good to me.

  • Ad position is a key factor that determines whether they will or not clicked. To place ads at the top of the page is a good place. Fine post here, Hamin

  • All are amazing tips except the sticky one. Google doesn’t allow to place ads on a sticky widget or element.

  • Much obliged to you for sharing your data. I need you to audit my site once and propose me the progressions. My page CTR is 0.94% and impression CTR is 0.25%.
