But the problem is either bloggers do not care or do not know the importance of design aspect of monetization.
Adsense is not the only monetization techniques for blogs, but definitely it is one of the most trusted and respected one. Here are important tips to run a successful Adsense monetized site which every bloggers should consider.

Short Unique Content Juicing for Adsense
If you are willing to make most of the Google Adsense, one thing you can test is tightening your content. I am not telling you not to create unique article though. Content juicing is scattering the information but presenting it in user-friendly manner. The best part of content juicing is you have the unique to point articles which are beneficial in many ways.
To successfully execute this you can divide your topic in small snippets posts. Creating series of posts on same topic and linking form one to next is important. This not only helps your page views but also keeps your users more encyclopaedic resources.
- First, your readers get what they are looking for to the point.
- Second you can create multiple article posts rather than writing on multiple topics on same post.
Ultimately you have unique targeted multiple resource pages and of course your Adsense slots which are most likely to be relevant to that content. Remember relevant ads means opportunity to gain more click through.
One tip to take away is to create single post page numbered link, like I have created for this post. If optimized properly it will help your blog grow quickly in many ways.
Optimized Adsense Palettes Formats: -
Designing Ads colour and choosing the right Adsense format is the key to success for money making with Adsense blog. If you really want to make money this is something could not be ignored. Usually or Google Image ads, Google automatically displays according to the colour of you blog, but not for text advertisements. But you have to opportunity to choose the colour how you would like it to be appearing.
Again there is no hard and fast rule for choosing the right colour but usually using the same colour that you have in your blog is optimal.
Google recommends blended ads within content and contrast colour to adjacent locations. Below is sourced from Google you can test this in your blog and check your heat map if it is working well for you.

One of the key is to understand which of your Adsense location is performing well is by naming your ads lot according to the location where you have set to appear on your blog. Understanding if those ads are performing well or not is important, if certain ads are not performing well it is best to move to other location and try it there.
You should always track and do a bit of research. To track your Adsense performance the best place is the Google Adsense Dashboard itself, on your research you should combine the heat map report of your blog, and of course the Analytic. You can use Google Analytic but I prefer Clicky, which comes free version too.
