Adsense Link units vs regular Ads
Now google Launched Responsive link unit along with 728*15, 428*15 and 220*90 ad units.
How do Link units work? earnings calculated based on CPC, When a user click on the Link unit then the page redirects to advertise page, if they click on the 2nd link on the advertisement results page then you get paid otherwise not. google said AdSense publisher allowed click link unit on the website, not on the results page.
Pros: users may click 2 more ads on the results page.
Cons: Maybe users do not lick on the results page then we cannot get any money.
Increased bounce rate & User experience hurts. deceptive ad formats.
may cause website quality and ranking issues. this is the reason why authority sites not use it.
Anyway, Any ad that placed on the above fold performance well.
