Improve Adsense performance by using Big Size Ad Formats

I always advocate to use adsense on your blog for recurring income and no doubt it’s one of the best way to make money via blogging. To make a handsome earning via adsense you need to learn various tips and tricks of adsense, which usually come by experience and by reading. I religiously follow official adsense blog to learn more tricks and tips to make most out of adsense.

One thing is true when it comes to adsense & Advertising bigger is always better. At our blog ShoutMeLoud, we have major ad spot as 728*90, 468*60, 350*250 and 125*125 ad spot at sidebar.

From the performance point of view, my 728*90 ad blocks performs best, followed by 350*300 ad spot at the top of the post, 125*125 ad spot below post, 468*60 ad spot at the top header & 125*125 ad spot at the sidebar.

    I always feel, going with a big rectangle is more beneficial than any other ad unit.

  2. Pradeep says

    Large Rectangle (336 x 280) and Leaderboard (728 x 90) are the best performers. Blending 336 x 280 and complementing 728 x 90 with the content are working well.

  3. Sammy | Free Home Business says

    The 336×280 size blended at the start of the post has worked best for me. In fact, I started getting success with adsense only when I blended it within the posts and optimized the categories within Adsense.

    But there is no doubt it is a very good monetization option for all bloggers.
