Some sites have many types of subscription box. They will add subscription boxes as a pop-up, sidebar widget and below posts to increase social media subscribers. It is not good as it decreases your blog speed.
Displaying too many ads in your blog is not advisable. It does not increase your income but decrease your ranking. The best place to display ads is below post titles.
In my suggestion use one or two ads in sidebar and other ads you can use in Bellow post title and in between post content…
Avoid Pop-Up Ads and Widgets
Most of us hate pop-up ads and widgets. It really makes the visitor feel irritated. But when it comes to displaying ads, publishers will try to add so many pop-up ads as they give good earnings. But remember, if there is visitor then only there is earnings.
