I've got a site thats focused on technology, specifically a programming language. I'm concerned that the type of visitors I am getting (programmers) will have a very low CTR for Adsense. These types could be online a lot and possibly 'conditioned' to the internet and internet advertising. Any opinions/experiences with this?
I have some content that's popular with programmers, and I took the AdSense off all those pages after they earned only a tiny bit of revenue. Some of my articles would go a whole month with nary a click.
I think programmers are the most likely kind of people to use ad blocking software.
I have a site about programming as well, 6 years old... before I paid real attention to adsense placement CTR was 1-1.5 % One year ago I started to optimize and it is increased to 2-3% removed from pages where much text, like online books, there ctr is very low, people just read page by page... you need to use channels to see where ads work and where not... much work actually ...
