Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
Pardon me for bad english. :)
Again, your problem is not the $200 per 1200 clicks. The problem is most likely your CTR (clicks per traffic very very low).
Having a small site re: puzzles and quizzes the earnings on the channel were pretty bad so I dropped adsense on that site to see what would happen my ecpm overall has gone up sufficiently so I now earn more than when I was running adsense on that site
I no longer develop or bother with much moniterisation of that site and just leave it run providing i can recover hosting costs and move on
PS I will at a later date possibly put YPN on to moniterise but currently traffic is split fairly even over 6 countries so YPN not an option
well best thing would be you google for it and see yourself, but I can't place them according to heatmap since my template *really nice one* has right-placed sidebar. I have rectangle block at the end of my Lessons (tutorials) and image next to them, I have unit links on top and only on my main page skyscraper add *before it was in every page*
I was reading this forum for long time, made many changes, visual, blending, removing MFAs, removing "advertise on this site"... helped a little but 1% and 2% are tops! (1000 impression of ads per day)
I meant to write this as well:
I have noticed that link blocks have a way of messing things up. A viewer can click view ads about..... and if they click back, you get nothing. This can mess up stats, and when I decided to lose the links and replace with large rectangle I seen great results immediately.
