Pixabella Free Clipart
I am a newbie to NB and I was hoping I could get my site reviewed buy the top Adsense earners to see how I could improve my Adsense earnings. Adsense has been active on my blog since March this year and I am earning a few hundred dollars a month.
Pixabella Free Clipart is my blog where I designed this site template, the layout, the clipart and where I write my own content.
Today I made a change to my blog after reading Will Spencer's tips about increasing Adsense income. I changed my text links from grey to blue like his post suggested. It actually looks a lot better, lets hope it converts well to.
I made the decision today to move my static page links from the navbar to a side column and add 5 Adsense text link ads. I am not sure if this is the right decision for my blog?
My other thoughts on Adsense text link ads is to place one somewhere in my post, however I already have a big graphic ad that appears three times per page. On top of that each post I write I also give away a free clipart piece. Hmm any thoughts?
I was thinking of adding text link ads into to my posts but I was a bit concerned the block ad and clipart graphic giveaway would cause ad blindness.
I would really appreciate your input and if you have any further advice, changes or ideas I can use to improve my Adsense income that would be great.
Just a quickie: In my humble opinion, you should make the ad links exactly the same colour as the rest of the links on your site. It looks like #2387a2 to me. Furthermore, since the ads will have underlined links (which you can't change), you should underline the links in the rest of your site. The ad links should look like a natural part of your site, not something "different". Good luck!

Does anyone else have an opinion on color and underlining of links to improve uniformity and possibly boost revenue?
