With almost 1.428 page view only 2 clicks on add and Page CTR 0,14. Can somebody help me where I'm wrong. I'm new in this so any advice is great thing for me.

Thanks for you help

Best regards

    The placement isn't very noticeable.
    The adlinks unit would do great just below the post title and just above the category listing.
    The one on the left sidebar just gets lost.
    The one on the right sidebar is probably thirds and is showing me ads about gov't grants. In other words, Google ran out of ads.

    You should have one in the post itself. Drop the Left sidebar one and put something in the post.

    Even better, don't rely on Adsense and start integrating affiliate links into your posts.

    You might want totake a look at this
    A. Blog - Homepage - AdSense Help
    and this
    B. Blog - Article Page - AdSense Help
    Now while they recommend something under the Navigation, yours is so large the ads get pushed down so far as to "disappear."

    Try placing text ads inside the content with noticeable colours (the pink is working good)

    Main reason is your web design, adsense ads becomes hidden under your colorful design and your ads placement also not good.

    Adsense income depends on so many things . Your income will not increase overnight . You have to do a lot of hard works for that . You should choose high CPC keywords , you should place your ads in the right place , your blog should be visitor friendly , the search volume of your keyword should be high , you should attract people to click the ads .

    Wow! I really like your look of the theme.

    I will recommend one large rectangle below title or on right sidebar widget will work well. Ad colors is also going well with the site.You may try different color combination of ad.

      I read a lot that I need to mask the ads not to emphasize them, so I've tried to bled them into design!

        Another thing, some niches just don't lend themselves to Adsense. It might take you a while to figure out if this is one of them.

    Hi cupcakesgarden!

    You have a beautiful site design. I really like it a LOT. These guys are right about your ad placement. You'll never get many clicks with this ad placement.

    I'm guessing that you don't want to take away from your site's look by putting ads in spots that look spammy.

    I've consulted on a few thousand sites over the last 8 years and tons of them have run Adsense. I would highly recommend putting a large rectangle ad directly after your posts.

    For example, on this page: http://www.cupcakesgarden.com/mini-lemon-cupcakes/

    I would put the large rectangle right above the comments. In fact, I would consider moving your share buttons to the top of the post so the ad wasn't right below them. Your visitors will be looking for something to do right after they read a post. Some of them will click an ad.

    Yes, putting a large rectangle at the top of the post, below the title would work even better but that would look pretty spammy in my opinion!

      Thanks for the great advice. I've put big ad box on top of post and it looks spammy for my taste but I will left it for a couple of days to check effect. Also I've understood it is maybe to early for monetize my blog!

      Can you suggest me another good way for this blog monetization except Adsense!

    Ey, when I read the posts of your website. It does really wanna make me click the "Look the recipe at : link" instead of the adsense ads. Try to place that on the bottom of the post, in-between pics and social buttons. That's just my opinion and I'm not even an adsense guy anymore :p

    I guess your site converts just as poor as mine!

    In general I would say your site is way too distracting.

    Also remove those links after the 1st paragraph, you are chasing all your visitors away, at least move it somewhere far down the bottom and make it non clickable or something.

    Wonder why that is?
