    Thanks for the post, this actually makes me feel better, as my site does not have anywhere to place an opt-in box above the fold OR to place ads on the right hand side, which usually convert better than ads on the left hand side. But there is a lot of area in the middle of the page that I can use for ads which, apparently, is also a good placement!

    actually my question is that : “can we put the Adsense Code in BETWEEN (inside) our POST” but as i remember if we put the adsense code in between our post as well as top and bottom as well —– so- will it comes under the terms of voilatin ? because more then 3 Banner Ads not Allow ?

      You can put your adsense ads inside posts, before posts and after posts. Inside posts has best CTR. More than 3 banners not allowed / will not work.
