We have 3 types of traffic, the Local, the Mobile and the Social.
The Local are those traffic from your location, and of course its important because it shows you are very relevant in your locality.
The social is the most recommended traffic source by us, getting social traffic is not just woning a social profile, promoting contents will fetch more users and hence more income, lastly, neglet the rumour about "promoting your website via social platform will cause adsense ban", infact we urge all our publishers to improve their social traffic.
The mobile traffic is the most guaranteed traffic a website can ever get, of course you know one of our popular statement which says "Mobile is King", since mobile users are over 70% of internet users and this number is increasing rapidly in africa, we urge you to improve your website's responsiveness in other to earn from mobile traffic
Improving RPM, and CPC
One can not really determine the most exact way to improve CPC and RPM, but a well Optimized website will generate a higher RPM and CPC
Is RPM affected by the Traffic from Local or International
It is not actually affected by where the traffic comes from, but traffic from international will pay X4 of your local traffic, because our system finds that traffic as very relevant, imagine your website is in Nigeria, and a Nigerian user sitting in America visit your website, our system sees that user as very relevant, because leaving the competition in America and Visiting your website in Nigeria is actually worth it, that is to say, we pay more for International Top level countries' traffic
What is The Exact Amount of RPM
One can't tell but i would say, 1-2$ is fair, but please, disregard trying to compare your website with other websites out there, some web site always wants to over exaggerate their earnings in other to intimidate others
What is the Exact number of ads to be placed per page?
The exact adsense ad code we urge all website owner to place is 3, placing above might cause policy warning or a devalue in your earnings, and if you are placing below 3 you might as well try to add one more ad unit.
More to NOTE:
Try out Adsense 320x100, Matched Contents, Adsense for Search, Page-level (Vignette Ads) to Improve your earnings.
