How to introduce new pages

Is there a way of helping the bot find the best ads?

We normally have between 1 and 7 ad units on a page. If we are introducing a new page that we anticipate performing best with 1 ad, are we better, in the short term, putting plenty of ads, say 6, on the page?

My thought is that that might give the Adsense bot plenty of chance to find out which ads works best. Then, after a couple of weeks, we reduce the number of ads to 4, then after a couple more weeks, down to 1. Or will the changing of numbers of ads confuse the bot?

I wouldn't worry about the bot.

The fewer ads your visitors see the least likely they are to find something interesting to click on IMO. My money actually went up when as an experiment I stacked 2 leaderboards on top of each other in a couple of area as people might click on 2 or 3 things they see of interest instead of just 1.

That's incredible incrediBILL! How do you sleep at night? Richer I bet.

My experience has been 'less is more' but maybe I should start a new cycle of testing, there we go again!

21_blue, I think bot-wise all you need is one unit.

If you really want to confuse the bot: Change the content every day :-)

Hey, I said it was an experiment on SOME pages, as I really hate being spammy but I also hate not making money.

Sometimes the dollar sign overpowers me.

Hi

I'm new to adsense, but would like to know if it's a good og bad thing to change your content every day?

Would it have a positive impact to the ability to show relevant ads?

Don't!
It was a geeky joke, hence the smile.
The bot is your friend, don't confuse it.

It's easily confused. A new page I put up today immediately showed very topic relevant ads specific to the product. I checked them out (no, I didn't click on them!) and hoped being so relevant, they'd get a good CTR, but I'd end up with the sales as the competition was much more expensive.

Blasted bot's been back and the page is now showing ads loosely related to the topic, but nowhere near as relevant :(
