August 16th, 2005, 12:53 PM #1To "Draw Attention" or not....that is the questionThis is the way I did for many web sites. I personally tested different AdSense strategies, this one drives people crazy about clicking on AdSense.
Step 1. You create a top 10 list, I usually name it '10 top bla-bla web sites' (bla-bla stands for the name of the niche your web site works in).
Step 2. You put AdSense into this top 10, but special type of AdSense design - they look like headlines, just a line of text with words, nothing more.
TIP: you can stuff all 10 lines with AdSense, I usually put 3-5 AdSense for 10 'top web sites'.
ONE MORE TIP: No matter how you name the top 10, it can be even like 'Google portfolio of relevant web sites', any way you wish. The idea is just to give fresh alternative to 80% of web sites that show only dull AdSense that are clicked less and less these days.
So, the scheme works like crazy, those who are searching the web for something, will surely look through top 10. You do not cheat anybody, the web sites are relevant (this is Google job) and you get Google checks monthly.
Use it. It works.
The quote above was posted here today, and it sounded like a good idea, untill I read the replys below it.....everyone was saying that you can not draw attention to you google adsense ad in any shape form or fashion, then I read the post below

There are lots of ways to get eyes on the ads without resorting to the gray areas of images near them.
Colors, placement, etc. do just fine on their own, IMO.
Repeat until you are satisfied.

There are a lot of people posting info that will get you in trouble with google. If you were to read the google adsense faq's and optimize page there is enough info on it that will steer you in the right direction. Myself I would never use that top 10 list thing you posted. Image ads above are an iffy right now it depends on who you are talking to. I have none of that either and Im doing ok.

Yeah, it's easy enough to make good adsense $ without getting into the grey areas. Everyone's always trying to eek out a quick buck by getting some angle, but it's bad news in the long run when you get booted from the program.Tim

The Top 10 thing seems a bit deceptive to me. I guess it depends on who's Top 10 you're referring to. If it's the webmaster's Top 10, how do you know that the AdSense ads that will appear are truly top sites? Just because they're in Google's ad network?
My site visitors are more valuable to me than this. I would not want to endorse a site by stating it's a Top 10 unless I could provide a valid and reasonable answer to why I endorse it. I think anyone who attempts this is not being 100% with site visitors, and may be the recipient of Google's wrath if they are caught.
Even though it doesn't specifically say this is wrong, it's definitely in a gray area.
