Many of newbie’s are curious to earn quickly and for that reason once they get adsense approval they straight away place ads all around, and they think they will earn more by doing this.

The ads appearing above the folds carries the highest CPC. So never place so many ads on you blog as it will affect your earnings.
#6. Ad placement matters
Ad placements are the positions/places where you place your ads. It also affects your earnings. Always use ads in prominent places so that it catches visitor eyes. And whenever possible place text ads near to your content and image ads in header and sidebars.
