No AdSense Ads Below Blog Title or Post Title

By referring to Google AdSense placement heat map, we put Google AdSense ads above blog content (below post title) for better performance. But Google AdSense team does not quite agree with the ads placement.

QuickOnlineTips received an email from Google AdSense support pointing out the issue on their site.

In fact, Google Adsense Blog published 2 guidelines earlier and one of them is “ads shouldn’t be placed under a title or section heading in a way that implies that the ads are not ads.”

I didn’t take much attention to the guideline because I thought mine is different than the example. My AdSense ads was separated by categories and date. But it seems AdSense team think the different.

AdSense team advised QuickOnlineTips that:

publishers may not label the Google ads with text other than ’sponsored links’ or ‘advertisements’.

As a result, QuickOnlineTips now put a “ADVERTISEMENT” word above the AdSense ads.
