Above the Fold

Adsense is bugging me to move my ads up

Is anyone else getting emails and messages going into Adsense about moving their ads up above the fold? I find it ironic given all the previous emphasis on not having too many ads up top, user experience, blah blah. I earn a fraction of what I did long ago because I don't have as many ads up high (although I think other market changes were bigger than that). I do have one above the fold which is probably enough.

My site is faster. Users are happier. More page views from users. But Adsense revenue is down so...let's see.... move ads up and make a little more for a short period of time. Then lose users and get tagged by Google as a low quality site. I am not sure that is advice that I need.

You know your sites and users better than Google does. Not even consideration is (or should be) data driven. I always listen to what Google suggests, but I don't always follow their advice. In the end you have to go with your gut.

I found that async code + ads before content works for me.
