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.
