but are you seeing clicks comparable to text ads? I generally feel that people don't click on image ads, as well as they do on text ads.This is one reason why image ads pay you more per click...
CTR remains about the same, the average from previous weeks. The EPC is the one increasing. I seriously believe this from Google:
"Opting in to both Text / Image means more competition!
We've found that our publishers who show both image and text ads are able to earn higher revenues. Opting into both text and image ads increases competition among the ads competing to appear on your site, as both text and rich media ads (image, flash and video) will compete in the ad auction. We will then automatically display the ads which will yield the highest earnings for you."
It has been working for me "so far". Heard it doesn't work for others.
