I'm doing an experiment with my Google ads placement. I have read an article about the hot placements and it is quite working for me. I moved one of my Google ads after the Post title and it is now earning more than $2 a day from the former cents a day. Isn't that cool? If I can earn $100 in three months, I may earn $100 now in one month. Hopefully!
Here is the illustration from Google of the hot zones. The darker the color, the more it is attractive to your readers.
At your blog's template, search for this code: <p><data:post.body/></p>
Now, paste your Google ad code before that. It should look like this:
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == "item"'>
Save the changes in your template then test if it is working. The ads will not appear on the main page but on each individual pages.
Let me know if it increased your Google ads revenue.
If you like this post, buy me a cup of coffee.
