I have mixed feeling about this issue. How do you know when you have too many ads on your blog? How many ads are too many? It’s all relative to the type of blog you own. It also depends on the quality of your content. Also, the layout and spacing varies this equation.
The noob definitely doesn’t have a lot of ads on this blog. But some might argue that i do a lot of sponsored postings. Well, you could be right in saying that, but i have a great counter argument. Do you pay my bills? Didn’t think so. As long as you have quality content on your blog, your readers will excuse your sell out posts. They’ll learn to ignore them just like those stupid adsense ads that people never click. You readers will understand that you need to make money. It’s better then selling rocks or turning tricks right?
You have too many ads…
If your ad widgets slow your blog’s load time to dial up speed, then you have too many ads.
If 50% of your readers say you have too many ads, then you have too many ads.
If you have more ads then posts, then you have too many ads.
If you have adsense and adbrite on your blog, then you have too many ads.
If you have ads on your header, sidebar, and footer, then you have too many ads.
If your blog has unmatching colored ads that resemble the gay flag, then you have too many ads.
