Where should I place Google Ads for high CTR


An eyetracking study recorded how users looked at thousands of Web pages including Google and Slashdot.

The study looked at how people navigate websites, search and react to advertising.

The summary is that a human eye scans a webpage like letter F. These results [similar to Google Heatmap] are depicted in the picture on the right side.

The areas where users looked the most are colored red; the yellow areas indicate fewer views, followed by the least-viewed blue areas. Gray areas didn't attract any fixations.

The results offer some useful hints for Web Designers and Bloggers showing Advertisments.

First, for effective layouts - don't place Google Ads [or other advertising banners] on the right sidebar as web users typically ignore that area.

Users scan a webpage in seconds and no one is going to read text word-by-word. Most are only going to read the first two paragraphs. In a few seconds, their eyes move at amazing speeds across your website’s words in a pattern that's very different from what you learned in school.

Therefore, try to highlight [use different font, increase font weight] the important lines to attract user attention. Make the initial paragraphs interesting

In spite of the fact that many critics comment on ed hardy clothing as nothing but tattoo pattrens, being full of unnecessary and useless things, ed hardy clothes is widely acknowledged that ed hardy shirts draws the most attention of both common young people as well as many Hollywood welcomed stars for its punk rock styles. In fact, in today’s world, many ed hardy t-shirtsdesigns are more or less the same with each othre, and ed hardy mens and ed hardy womens , absolutely, brings a totally new shock in the fashion world for its design being out of ordinary ed hardy sunglasses.
