Due to the recent drop off in CTR, etc. with Adsense, I am looking to split test Adsense with Media.net and some other networks. Is anyone else doing this? I am trying to figure out the best way to do this on the cheap or for free. Just wanted to see what others are doing.

Thanks

If you're using wordpress, just download a plugin called AmpedSense. Allows you to run split tests. It's a life saver.

I used this to A - B test Adsense ads a few years back, worked fine then, should still be OK. No jquery needed.
<script>
var random_number = Math.random();
if(random_number < .5) {ADUNIT 1 CODE} else {ADUNIT 2 CODE}
</script>

LuckyD - Thanks for this. I use it on some of my WP sites and it is great, unfortunately this is a non-WP site.

No5needinput - Thats for this, I'll give it a try. Question though, what does the <.5 control ?

@mrdon - Approx 50% show or 50/50 for each ad unit.

Today I am going to call ad house and find out about a waterfall ad system for the first time in 8 years of running adsense. May is looking worse than April for me! imagine that.
