So, on a couple of my sites, on which I use the same theme, I use a banner ad at the top of posts; it's cut off on the right side, in other words, not showing the whole ad. However, it shows probably at least 90%of the ad. I mean, you can see what the ad is for and what it's about.
So, my question is, Is this a problem? Is it going to affect how much I can earn from the ads?
I think you better adjust the size where you place your ads or choose an ads that fit exactly where you want it to be. or else it will make your site looks unattractive and chances of earning is very low.
It probably won't have a big direct impact on earnings, but it will make your site look less professional and less attractive.
I would suggest either finding a smaller banner or editing the theme to give more space or put the ad in a different location.
If possible you may like to consider having a square banner left aligned at the top with the text of the post wrapped around it, rather than above the post. These tend to perform better anyway
Sounds good, makes sense. Now I'll have to go to Adsense and also check out my theme and site and see what I can do. I'm not sure how easy it will be to put the ad left aligned with text wrapped around it. The way my theme works, there's a box, when editing, where you can put the adsense code; then it places it above the text of the beginning of the post.
If you are really not showing all the ad (versus just optimized for a wider screen setting) Adsense may drop you if the notice it.
