I believe my AdSense account has been affected in some way since my CTR has dropped from 2.2% to 0.8% overnight.
I didn’t get any notification from Google on my AdSense or webmaster tools accounts warning me I was doing anything wrong, but after studying my reports and reading other threads on this forum I came to the conclusion I might have been placing ads too aggressively on one particular page template that my site uses a lot.
I have completely removed ads from that page template right now while I think how to place them better, and that’s where I would like to ask for the community help.
Below you can find a screenshot of the page template affected. It’s an image page template and therefore has little content which I know is not ideal… however my users browse tens of images for every “pure content” page that the look at, so I feel like not monetizing these pages would be a huge waste.
Now my question is, how many ads would you place on a page like this and where would you position them to make sure they are effective but at the same time are not too aggressive to Google’s eye?
