Best location for Google AdSense ads

If you want to learn from my own experience in increasing AdSense Click Through Rate follow the link.

Heat map illustrates the ideal placing on a sample layout. Certain locations tend to be more successful than others. The colors fade from dark orange (strongest performance) to light yellow (weakest performance). Ads located above the fold tend to perform better than those below the fold. Ads placed near rich content and navigational aids usually do well because users are focused on those areas of a page.

What is above the fold? - used for describing the part of an Internet document that you see without moving the page downward. It is considered the most important part of the page because everyone who goes to that document sees it.

Definition of below-the-fold : used for describing the part of an internet document that you cannot see without moving the page downwards. It is considered the less important part of the page.
