    WP Blogs vs. Non-Blog Sites
    Do you find it harder to place ads in "profitable" locations on your blog as opposed to a non-blog site? For example, if you place an ad in the middle of your blog post, you will have more than the three allowed AdSense ads on the home page of your blog.

    Do you get around this somehow? Ads above the posts?

    Currently, I use WP blogs for SEO purposes (and get some aff sales as well) but AdSense has been marginal.

    The ads only show in three spots, the other spots end up being white space.

    I don't understand why you'd have more than 3 ads on a page. You know where you're inserting ads so if you have one in the post, you only insert 2 (or fewer) elsewhere.

    If you insert an ad in each post and you have 10 posts on the front page....

    There are some plugins to manage adsense that let you "turn off" adsense ads on the front page, and they only display in the post page itself.

    That's why it is good to edit your template files. I have my ads placed differently for home.php than index.php or single.php etc.

    It's better to use a plugin and not edit your php pages, since your changes can get overwritten in an upgrade if you forget

    I use a theme that lets me edit things *without* touching the php files. It's awesome.

    For many that probably would be better, but since I have my own custom theme, it wouldn't be overwritten by an upgrade. One less plugin to worry about. :-)

    Most of the common wordpress ad plug ins allow you to limit the number of ads to show in order to allow you to follow the google guidelines.

    On many of my blogs where I do have Adsense, I simply limit the number of posts to 3 that are visible on the page.

    On others, I use plugins to control placement/limits, on others I edit the theme pages, and on others I simply don't use Adsense.
