Adsense Links Units are the Magic format!

Are you not using links ads? you are missing.

Are you using text ads and you are not making the most out of them? then it’s probably because you don’t know how to use them! this is how to do so…
Text ads can be used in 3 different locations on your site. Meaning, you can place 3 link ads 3 times on the same page [sen-totology]
So, go ahead and create link units and make sure that you are using the very best form of these ads. Google Adsense has provided you with different forms of the very same advert but not all of them are so great. I have tried most and I will recommend the responsive format for link ads for anyone.

Create Responsive Links ads put them on your blog in this order

  1. Headers, Just after your breadcrumb because you cannot afford to sacrifice your seo for the sake of $$$. Never make that mistake my dear.

  2. Footers, Just after your breadcrumbs again

  3. In Post, just after the first 150 words possibly after your reader is engrossed in the post and can click whatever is clickable provided it makes sense and related to the post and of course depending on how compelling it is. If you don’t like long posts#, then leave it at 50 words! that’s just 5 sentences.

  • WordPress guys can use some plugins such as headers and footers by.. *** Lysa [forgive me, I don’t know the coder’s name well]

  • Xenforo users can use special add-ons for this and

  • Wapka users can resort to pure javascript codes for this[too bad, poor wapka]

The workings of Link units
links Ads have a special way of working which I believe you should know about though you will notice it the moment you start using them.

Facts about Adsense Link Unit format

  1. They can drive clicks in the right positions: try link ads with Other ad formats in the formation specified above and you will have your own story to tell. people are always clicking the link units more provided they are in a clear position where they can be seen properly. They can get about 1.5* more clicks than other ad formats except those long ads though

  2. They are simply and occupies the least possible space: Link units are always there but will appear as though they are not. this is one of the reasons why I like them most. Other ads may involve images of varying pixels which can take as long as it chooses to download and display on the page but link units have nothing other than some text to download plus the text are usually less than 5 words each. this makes link ads to fit into almost any place and cause least possible distortion to website appearance.

  3. Relativity to the web page: Link unit are almost always related to the content of the page. the images may not be related but the links are and this is cool.

  4. 9 in 3 ads! this is another powerful feature of AdSense Link ads. each link unit contains 3 links and when you place 3 of such ads on your web page as recommended, it becomes 3*3= total 9. so with link ads, you get the chance of stuffing 9 possible links into 3 ad spaces!

So, that’s how you can use link ads on your site to increase Adsense earnings without increasing Adsense CPC for Nigerians and other African brothers.
Most of the Europe countries have no need for this because of course there Adsense CPC is always flying and they mostly don’t understand what it means to earn $30 with more than 1000 clicks, thanks to generous Adsense!
