Re: What's too many ads?

Postby kat82 » 12 Oct 2018, 09:50

Too many ads to me is when a site has ads clattered all over. Too many ads are known for interrupting users while navigating the site. Sites with too many ads tend to have a high bounce rate when compared with those with average ads. In the past, Google adsense for example used to limit the number of ads to 3 per page. But now, that no longer applies. Unless a page has longer content, I wouldn't recommend it to have more than 3 ads. But of course, choice depends on kind of content and what the site owner wants. 6 ads plus to me is a higher number and considered as too many ads.

Having too many ads does not mean you will earn a lot of money. Having a couple of ads in the best spots will increase your chances of generating more revenue. Try using ads from 2-3 ad networks for better results.

I use 5 ad units on my home page and three ad units in the internal pages. I think I am using ads in moderation. Too many ads will make your website look cluttered.

Yes, you are using ads in moderation. I am using 7 ad units on the home page.

I am using 2 Adsense ad units on my home page and 1 WordAds ad unit. In the past, I used to have more than that but the returns wasn't good. When I limited the number of ads, things changed and even earnings from Word Ads doubled. Three ad units on a homepage to me is best while using 3 or 4 or even 5 in content (number determined by the content length) seems to work fine.

I am also thinking to use WordAds. How does wordads compare with adsense in terms of earning (based on your experience)?

I don't sites with too much ads, it really put me off. Alot of pops up and pop under with banner ads and all what not. I don't really get all of that. Ads at least 3-4 per page is good.

I don't mind a large number of banner or sidebar advertisements. However, I will instantly click of any website that has too many pop-up advertisements that start opening up when I click around the site.

One of my sites has 7 ad units on the home page. It does not matter how many ads you have, the thing is your ads neet to blend well with the contents.
