Adsense working for you? Lovejoy msg:1441484 5:48 pm on Jul 13, 2003 (gmt 0) I've just finished my first week with adsense and the ads have all been on target, but the click through has only been .5%. I know it is early day's, but it would appear my well targeted clients are not interested ;~))

Its early days yet. Although AdSense started working for me right away :) I have been seeing good click through rates. Do you find your Ads are related enough?
I am starting to see patterns throughout the week. Saturday's are my best day by far. Is anyone else seeing better results on a Saturday?

I think it's just a bit too new to come up with any trend on my end. Last week Wednesday was my best day. cornwall msg:1441487 6:18 pm on Jul 13, 2003 (gmt 0)

Depends what your web site(s) are about. Saturday is the worst day of the week for travel sites
>> but the click through has only been .5%
As I understand it percentage clicking through is not in itself the Holy Grail. Money earned is the goal.
In other words 0.5% clicking through and you earning $2 a click, is better than a 5% click through and you getting $.05 per click

I find that with my site that traffic is very consistant all week with a slight increase on monday and tuesday. Daily traffic peaks from 9:00-11:30 pm. My clicks are not anywhere near $2.00 ;~(( altyfc msg:1441489 8:08 pm on Jul 13, 2003 (gmt 0)
I run a number of travel sites and (adsense aside) have always found Saturday to be the second worst day, with Sunday marginally worse.
