No more than 3 on one page ;)

The greater the number of ads you show, the lower the average payout for a click will be. I have some pages like the ones you do, but I am happy with one block with five ads on it.

|do you know if there's some way to put in more than three or four skyscraper ad-sets, or some other way to get ads running down the length of a very long page? |
Another easier to implement solution is to put one ad at the top of the page, one at the bottom and one in the middle - that way wherever there are (unless it is an extremely long page) they won't miss them.

what about "Story continued on next page".

Put it inside a <div style="position:fixed">, that'll leave it fixed on the screen no matter how far the page is scrolled down, doesn't work for IE6 though, but anything else. Let's see what IE7 brings.

You can lead a visitor to ads, but you can't make them click.
There isn't a single site I've seen that does this that I've considered to be worth visiting.
In terms of Web design, this is one of the most annoying things you can do.
How desperate do you want to look?

Mininova does this quite efficiently. But I agree with the notion that it's quite annoying.

Run tests. I tested two skyscrapers v. one. Average revenue per day virtually the same (for the reason given above).
