Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
You can only place one set of ads (one copy of the AdSense HTML ad code) on each page. Otherwise, ads may be double-served. In an effort to maintain the quality of our program, Google does not support double-serving. Please select the one ad placement best suited for each of your pages.
I appreciate Google can't allow webmasters to serve up hundreds of AdSense ads on a page, but surely the ability to repeat a horizontal ad "below the fold" would be to everyone's benefit?
In addition, run the risk of having an ad 'taken offline' for low performance.
To ensure your advertising is as effective as possible for you and your users, we require that your account and individual keywords maintain a minimum CTR. However, because we only consider the CTR on Google search pages when evaluating your account and keywords, the performance of ads distributed to our ad network do not affect the CTR Google uses in evaluating your performance.
But, do marketer's really want to see false impressions in their stats, and be tricked into believing their ad isn't pulling as it should?
For myself, as a marketer, I would be tricked, and then proceed to waste my time trying to fix it when there was nothing to fix.
I just want to show the same ad at the top and bottom of the page and have it count as one impression. I do this with my existing banner advertisers, who are more than happy because they get better response, and keeping the advertisers happy is my over-riding aim.
Isn't that more of an issue with CPM ads than with CPC ads, where advertisers pay only for clickthroughs?
No worries, glad that you liked the idea on parsing the referrer! Let us know how it works out, eh?
how about making the adwords float with the browser window? that's popular for some other stuff - then they'll always be seen
I don't think you'll see floating ads from a company that's thoughtful enough to incorporate a popup blocker into the latest version of its toolbar.
IMHO, floating ads score an "A" for "annoying."
