Adsense optimalisation with DFP

Since the end of February my adsense earnings got lower and lower. And at this stage I need to do something about it because the earnings are getting way to low.

I decided to try Google DFP small business. This way I would like to a/b test several ad positions and variations a lot quicker. For most of the site Iíve added the code but for my forum I do not seem to be able to get the things done the way I want it.

I have three banners (or Ad units). One for the top of my page, one after the first post and one after the last post. I would like to show only one banner at the time to see which position (or Ad Placement) works best. Each Ad unit need to be shown at a specific position to correspond the background colours of the website.

Iíve tried a lot of options to try to accomplish this, but it didnít work out :) . At this time of the three ads one is showing on the pace bot always at the same spot. I would like this to rotate.

Iíve tried to put all the ad units in the same ad placement, but this didnít work. Then I tried to give easy ad unit its own ad placement (in the future I would like to show multiple ads for the same ad placeplant).

Anyone who might be able to help me with the settings?

I've already looked into that but couldn't find an answer for this setup.

You could write a script that gives out one of three pattern at random and depending on the pattern one of your Creatives is shown.
For how to use patterns check my dfptutorial website.
