Hi all

I am not sure if this is normal or if i have set something up wrong, but after seven day i have had well over 1000 page impressions but only 9 clicks. does it take a while for adsense to gain momentum.

Depends on the site and the topic. Adsense only takes a few days to properly target your site so you should see some improvement by now.

how did you get up to 1000 impressions after only 7 days? i've been up 2 weeks and I barely get 2 or 3 a day..

are you fully crawled & indexed in google already?

what's your secret?!

The site has been online for 12mths nearly to the day and has been indexed by google daily for the last 6mths at least and we get fair amount of traffic we also add content daily. I didn’t think 1000 page impressions was a big deal so I don’t know if there is a secret to getting that. The secret I want to know is how to get more of those page impressions to convert to a higher percentage of clicks? If you know that secret I would love to hear it.

Radial, are the ads directly relevant to the topic? If, for example, your site is about Aussie rules football or cricket, and you're only getting generic sporting goods ads, that could be part of the problem. Tweaking the content of the pages might help, in that case, or using "section targeting"--look for info on that at the AdSense site.

If the ads are well-targeted, then what about your visitors? Are they coming to the site looking to buy things, or just to get scores and chat? If the latter, you aren't going to get much in the way of clicks.

And here's another thought. Where are your ads? If they aren't on the left or in the middle, where they can be seen on first viewing a page, you won't get as many clicks.

AdSense sometimes works right away. Sometimes it takes some work. Other times it never works. But hopefully one of those ideas wil help.

Well I probably have to look at the pages from a different view I guess as the content is more focused for visitors and not adsense and your right the adds are not 100% reflecting the page topic I will look into section targeting. Also the add placement across the site is leader board on top of the page content and adlinks at the bottom of the content I thought that looked best.

I would add,

On your clubs pages the Google menu ads are crashing into a form and are not showing.

There are menu ads (along a horizontal line) at the bottom but no leader board ads on some pages. Users may not even see the menu ads running along the bottom.

There is one page that has public service ads presumably because there is very little content on the page. Are there others?

When MS Explorer 6.0 finishes loading on the grey area lower left there is a message “Done but with errors on page”.

Personally I would blend the leader board ads a little more - no borders. But I would look at the above errors first.

We get public service adds on a fair few pages so I will beef up the content there to see if that helps and I will have a look at the errors you mentioned
