Quick question for y'all.
If you don't mind me asking, if you monetize your site what is your ad impression to dollars rate? To be clear, I am asking for a rate, which is far different than what you earn.
On wordads (I know it is optimized horribly), I pull in an abysmal 4 cents per thousand impressions. Compare that to radish, where I get $10-$30 per thousand or so hits depending on the week, though far lower traffic. My rate on wordads is likely super low because the majority of my users use add blockers.
Considering pulling ads entirely due to such a low income stream on my blog to improve user experience and post more about my publications. A single book purchase right now is worth about 25,000 impressions, so it is far more strategic to advertise that. A single email acquisition is equal to 5000 impressions. Not a fan of patreon, so I won't utilize that.
Let me know what you think!
