I have Adsense on my blogs. The rule is that I am not allowed to click on my own ads or solicit others to click on my ads. I am not in any way trying to solicit clicks, but do you even see the ads? I know in my daily EC dropping and post reading, I very rarely even notice adsense on others pages. It's as though by having them on my own page and knowing the "rules", I am blind to recognizing the ads on others sites.
Am I doing myself a disservice by not looking at these? If adsense ads are set up to be relevant to blogs and specific posts, depending on placement, and I'm reading a post I find relevant to me, with information I am interested in, then why wouldn't I seek out more information by clicking on a relevant ad? Because I just don't see it. I am completely blind to the ads and am merely looking to see what the writer had to say. Do you find that you have this problem too?
I never notice them either, although I've looked at them on my own blog, and they actually look like they'd be really good...links to coupons, etc. Obviously no one notices them on my site either, because no one's clicked through :-). I think we tend to ignore all/most of the side extra stuff on blogs.ReplyDelete
