Choosing the best ads for your site:
You should find out which ad fits into your site.This is the primary step.Don't think that text ads are always better than image ads.It is not so.
The choice of ads depend on the audience that view your website.This is very important in achieving a very high CTR rate.
For eg : If your site is about games the image ads will be the best option.Because most of the visitors will be children and they do tend to click on image ads more than text ads.
If your blogs readers are mostly adults , I mean people aged more than 20 years , then choose text ads.
Best ad positioning:
Best ad positioning is very very important for achieving maximum click through rate.Place the ads in parts of the page which gets maximum attention from the user.You can place ads between content , left side bar or right sidebar.The idea behind it is simple.The user should see the ad.
Merging ads with content :
If you can merge the ads and content i.e, tweak the color and appearance of ads and content so that the ads don't stand out as ads.This will bring you more clicks.Remember the simple rule : more the clicks , more the income.
So try to merge the ads and content as much as possible.
Suitable pages for placing ads:
You should place AdSense ads on pages that has good content.The content should be demanding.The content should be interesting too.If you feel that the content is not that interesting , then place non Google ads that pays on impression basis.Don't place AdSense ads on non content pages.
Tweaking content :
Tweaking the content means the presentation.The presentation of content should be very good.It should be readable.If possible split the content into many pages. Give headings and subheadings.Also give links to other pages.
Include pictures to make the content more lively.Also use the best suitable colours for the website or blog.

Tracking performance of ads :
Use the feature called channel in AdSense control panel to track the performance of ads.Creating channels will enable you to know from which ad the clicks came .So you can know which ad block is performing well.Also you can find out from which page the clicks came from.You should use this feature.Without using this feature you are left with no idea about the best performing ads.
Using AdSense for search to boost income :
Are you using AdSense for search in your site or blog. If not you are loosing some money.Adsense for search will make money for you when users click on the ads that appear in search results .

So use AdSense for search.
Using referral ads :
You can use referral ads too.Referral ads pay you when the user clicks in the ad and performs and action.It may be a sign up for purchase.
You can use referral ads for referring Google products like AdWords , Google pack etc.There are also third party referral products available.some publishers are making a lot of money via referral ads.
Tweaking the ads based on results :
Observe the results .This is very important. Once you have done the rest of steps you should observe the results of the ad placement , ad selection , ad color etc.If the results are good keep it as such .If the CTR is low , you can change the positioning of ads and then observe the results.By doing this you will gain necessary skills needed for an AdSense publisher.
- Don't ever click on your own ads.
- Don't ask anyone to click on your ads
- Don't send spam mails for achieving traffic
