My website is for free drumline music.
FreeDrumlineMusic (dot) com
I update the site weekly, adsense says I have an average of 2,300 views a day (not sure if that is unique or not) and I have close to 10,000 real, honest Facebook likes on the facebook page from true fans of the site. (The site is only about 3 months old)
However, my CTR is still at an average of 0.3%. The website is designed by using several images. Most of my ads seem to be irrelevant. I keep getting ads for electric scooters and Zune tablets. This afternoon I went in and added alternate text to the images in hope that that might bring more relevant ads (does adsense crawl image alt. text for ad selection?) The site consists of many... MANY pages. But I only have ads showing on the most active pages. (The home page, sheet music, cadences page, and the individual Level cadence pages, as that is where most of my traffic goes)
I'm hoping the addition of the alt. text descriptions, filled with info about drums might bring some more relevant ads. (Most of the ads I use are full image ads) I feel as though if I had more ads for drum related products that the CTR might increase. Most of the traffic to this site is from high school students, and the majority of them probably aren't interested in electric wheelchairs and other generic products that the ads are displaying.
If anyone has any suggestions I would be truly grateful. I started this website with the intent of making NO money, but to only assist school band programs around the world that suffer from a lack of information and proper material, after finding out about adsense I felt as though it may allow me to update the site even more and make it even better if I can can make a little money off of it.
Thank you so much for your time! I'm open to any suggestions!
