I noticed that in the month of January the amount per click for adsense was very low. That makes sense as many of the smaller sponsors stopped their adwords campaigns after the holidays.
That meant that the others could now bid lower due to less competition. The month of Feb. has slowly being going up however.
I have seen over the last week my PPC getting higher with a nice surprise today of one making $5.75.
Now, this has also happened right after I started using a new theme that uses those great 300x250 image ads. I have noticed that image ads, on average, gets much higher PPC.
This goes against what I originally thought, that your better off with only text ads. In fact I now have some that are only image ads.
Is anyone else seeing a steady rise in amount per click with adsense? If so do you find image ads gets higher clicks?
Yes and yes Bill. I had a good January though.
Glad to hear that Earnest. I'm starting to think maybe my higher clicks are solely the result of changing my theme on one site and using image ads on it.
That site gets all the high paying clicks, while the others are still showing low clicks.
You may be right Bill, I change and edit my hubs constantly. I wonder if that has helped too?
The subjects I cover are mostly automotive how-to's. They were all very slow to start with, but those hubs have been as solid as a rock for months now.I have covered a wide range of subjects in my few broad niches over the last year or so, and may have some authority with Google, I dunno really.
I wish, I just recently came back onto hubpages after about 10 months off. So my adsense have only made about $2.00 in the last 10 months. hopefully i can get some followers and get back at it.
Bill I think that your spiffy new theme and rewrite have a lot to do with your increased Adsense. The more I play with Genesis/Lifestyle the more I love it.
You've positioned your top and upper right adsense ads PERFECTLY. And you're getting great ad content.
I always allow text + image.
Because the highest bidder wins the ad spot. If the highest bidder is an image then let them on, if the highest bidder is text ads, then let them on.
I think that allowing Google to decide who gets the place is the best strategy, seeing as they wan't to make as much as possible too.

Can it go against Google rules if they have deliberately done this thinking they are helping you? I am worried because I just had a comment posted saying "thumbs up and adsense."
