Adsense Sucks For Your Sales!

by NMP 6 replies

That is what I think. In the beginning adsense and/or
same type of ads was cool. Nowdays if I come to a site
selling/promoting anything and I see an adsense ads I
leave, I try find another similair page without ads.

No idea why. Just can't stand these stupid ads all over
the page. On free information pages I can stand it but
on commercial pages YUK. Anyone else?

    It doesn't work having ads on your sales page - the page needs to be focused on one thing only.

    What you are selling.

        Of course adsens isn't good for sales pages - puts you in competition with yourself. You are telling visitors "stay and read my sales copy" and also "click here and leave my site".

        If the purpose of your page is to sell a product - forget adsense on it. IMers are more aware of the ads than the general public is.

        There really is no point in putting Adsense on a sales page. Anything that distracts the reader from your "Buy Now" button cannot be a good thing.

        Apparently you're not allowed to put Adsense on "thankyou" pages (for example, when somebody signs up to your mailing list, they get sent to a thankyou page with the text "Why not take a look at these great offers" followed by some adsense ads... That's a shame because I think it's a great way to make a couple of dollars a day, and the clicks are from genuinly interested people. Just my thoughts!

    What about adsense on merchants selling stuff thru clickbank or any other affiliatenetwork....

    There is no bigger sign to me to not promote that. Apperently he/she is not convinced the product will sell and needs an extra way to make a profit plus imho it's ripping the affiliates of that send traffic to that page.

    I added adsense to my squeeze pages..

    My opt-ins did not drop at all, and I get 10% ctr on my adsense. This effectively reduced my ppc expenses by over 20% (i get more per click then I paid), which increased my overal profitability quite a bit.

    Seriously, the only people clicking on my adsense are people who were going to hit the back arrow.. those interested in opting in are still doing so.

    And I got the basic idea from 'get adwords for free'!! Yeah - the product everyone hates It doesn't talk about adsense, but the idea that maybe ads wouldn't reduce my opt-ins was triggered by that ebook..

    This is not the same as a sales page of course, but it's an example of the need to test 'counter-intuitive' ideas for yourself..
