Do your home made ads stand out more than the Google ads did?
Two of them certainly do.
1. Customer logo on white background linked to his site.
2. Widget ad, black background linked to trademarked, keyword domain.
3. Ad designed to look like a Google ad, white backround, blue links.
It is a Coppermine gallery using Water Drop theme, plain white background, the url is example.com/coppermine/
Traffic to this site overall has been about 50% of normal, for me this was to be expected at Easter.
The click thrus generated in the first 24 hours have basically been 2,700% better than AdSense and evenly distributed across all three exit links...that surprised me.
In other words the clicks have been coming through more per HOUR than AdSense has been doing per DAY. So far today I have received ten serious enquiries and this is on a holiday.
I'm not quite sure what to make of this, I have many questions buzzing around in my head however the main one has to be why are people clicking on my ads but not AdSense?
The clicks are genuine, not machine generated, in case anyone was wondering.
