Support » Your WordPress » Do I have too many ads? (Also, site review please!)

  • So after finally figuring out how to insert ads, I set up my adbrite ad zones and went to work. Can i get a couple people to browse through a few pages and review my website and tell me if they think I have too many ads (do they get in the way and ruin your experience), and if you like the layout of my site? I’ve managed to rack up about 15,000 visits per month and about 25,000 page views, so I’d like to start monetizing that. But I’m worried about annoying my visitors too much with ads.

    The ad zones are blank for right now, so just imagine an ad is there.

  • There should be a leaderboard header, sidebar ad and 2 footer ads

    One advert is too many.

    Well that was helpful.

    Users will react different ways to advertising I find. Some like ads, some browse by ads and some just hate ads. And your site topic with the user behavior without ads, and then the effect after you set the ads up can easily be compared.
    If you check how your analytics are affected, in comparison with a potential increase in revenue, you should be able to make a decision that would find the right balance.

    I wouldn’t say there are too many ads, and the ones that are there are well placed, but a video ad with audio that plays automatically is annoying as hell.
