From Google Ads, on ad placement
Here are a few questions to ask yourself when considering where to position your ads:
* What is the user trying to accomplish by visiting my site?
* What do they do when viewing a particular page?
* Where is their attention likely to be focused?
* How can I integrate ads into this area without getting in the users' way?
* How can I keep the page looking clean, uncluttered and inviting?
Can you honestly say ? The placement doesn't get in the users way?
