Searching for the most profitable ad layout has been the eternal mission of every publisher monetizing with ads. No surprise, because ads don’t make money just like that. They have to be arranged in a way that meets your website visitors’ needs, expectations, and habits. Otherwise, they won’t focus enough attention to reach targeted audiences, hence to make money. And where’s the fun in that? But finding the right composition takes a lot of time and practice, which are not always easy to come by.
What’s behind efficient ads
What your website’s visitors see as ads hides a ton of data analysis and planning. Although it might seem that the right areas for advertising are easy to spot, it’s not that simple. It’s not just the matter of filling available whitespace nor choosing eye-catching formats. A profitable ad layout takes a lot of optimization regarding both your website and its users.
Over the years, users developed some habits and patterns when surfing the web. Identifying and understanding those is the key to effective ad arrangement. Why? Because only then do ads serve their purpose to catch attention. Our eyes tend to focus on some parts of the screen more than others. While scrolling through pages, people search for demanded information or content with quick glimpses to pinpoint what they’re looking for. Many studies prove that people will often consume its content in the common F-pattern when visiting a website. It means that the horizontal part of the page gets our full attention, while what’s lower on the page focuses less and less attention. Of course, there are more of these fundamental users’ eye-catching concepts to follow. So as you see, there are multiple angles you should consider to put yourself in the user’s shoes, but the real deal is to consider both various and right aspects.
