Place advertisements here, please

In the last weeks we worked hard to find a way to improve earnings on your blog. We run tests on a huge amount of blogs and we found out a few settings that could change for the better your cash out. We both worked on desktop and mobile, so you can appreciate a growing in earnings on both sides.

The Desktop Side: Skyscraper Huge  

First suggestion: use the Autopilot. Autopilot is how we call the Ads System in Altervista that fills your blog with the best ads for your WordPress theme.

It’s pretty easy to use it: Dashboard -> Earn -> click on Activate Autopilot. Advertisements that better fit in your current WordPress theme will be placed and you start to earn from them.

Second suggestion: add a skyscraper huge (300×600). That type of advertisement it works very well in the revenue system we run on Altervista. You should add a widget Altervista With Google AdSense in your blog sidebar, then select  skyscraper huge (300×600), and choose colors before click on Save. To join this peculiar Adv network, that pays you both per click and per view, you first have to connect you Google AdSense account to Altervista.

Place a widget with the Ads Banner

The Mobile Side Of Adv

The increasing importance of mobile traffic made us wondering about how to place ads for the best revenue. We’ve been monitoring a dozen of blogs and we discovered that in posts with more than 250 words ads placed in the middle of the post get more click that ads placed right under the post title. So, we did place it down to get more click.

If you activate the Autopilot to manage adv on your blog and the mobile system on Altervista your ads banner will be placed in order to obtain more clicks at the middle of the post or right under the title.


We have introduced a new banner sized 320×50 placed at the bottom of the page. Also, this banner is available by using the Autopilot and it’s part of the Altervista With Google AdSense advertisement program. It’s easy to join in, and start to earn with your blog.

The easy way to gain with your WordPress blog

We found a way to gain more with less work. Less work from you, more gain for you. We called it Autopilot, it’s a new system to place best ads for your Altervista WordPress blog in just one click.
