Have You Taken Advantage of the AdSense Link Unit Yet?

February 28, 2007 by  

I don’t know about you but the AdSense Link Unit has been working quite well for me. While it’s not the most profitable ad unit, it still contributes a significant portion of my total AdSense revenue.

The Inside Google AdSense team has published a case study over at their blog about how a publisher is doubling her AdSense revenue by using a 468×15 link unit.

I’ve published an article previously how I use the 468×15 link unit as an additional navigation bar to increase my AdSense revenue. Check it out here.

Tried the link units before, but found it to be underperforming on my blog.

Now that I’m getting more traffic, I guess it’s worth trying for the second time ’round.

Wow… within hours of integrating the link units, I’ve already made US$0.25 from them.

Thanks for the heads up! 🙂

Yes some days half of my earnings (which is considerable) comes from this unit.

It’s a good performer if you integrate it properly.

I’ve experimented with it and found it to be ineffective. I think that’s down to the sites I have it running on, however.

That was my conclusion the last time I tried them. They were simply underperforming compared to the other ad formats I displayed.

However, probably due to my current theme, or the traffic I currently enjoy, or both, they’re definitely a viable revenue generator.

On my site I’m using the other style of link unit, and it blends in quite well. it looks like a menu structure, and I think this is why it performs so well.

About 70% of my AdSense income actually comes from that link unit, so yip, I fully agree that link units are king. Though not many people like the vertical unit.
