Test: Removing eBay Ads
Until just now, I had a large eBay ad in the footer of every article at Tools Keep.
I deleted the eBay ads because I am curious to see how their absence will affect AdSense CTR.
I am creating this topic to remind me to check back in about a month. One of my many bad habits is to create a wonderful test and then forget to check on the results. :o
lol...well I hope you see an increase in your CTR and I am posting this to remind myself to congratulate you when you do :p
This reminds me of my Chitika experience, when my adsense eCpm dropped to 1/2...
I've kicked Chitika afterwards! :p
Same thing happened to me yesterday. I added Chitika, suddenly the AdSense dropped to a fraction of the day before per click, I removed Chitkia this morning and this afternoon my AdSense clicks are back to their usual value.

Cause and effect in this industry can be really difficult to correlate. :(
