    cant really help you without seeing your site. The best way to get a good CTR is by putting an ad above the fold

    I just increased one of my sites from about 20 clicks a day to over 100 . I did it by putting 2 250x250 blocks side by side above the first post on the blog homepage. The one on the left is an image ad and the right one is image and text.

    Put an ad unit, the 300x250 usually converts well, under your first post. But if you're not getting much traffic it really wont do much anyway. Build traffic, then put ads. Its easier to build traffic on a site that isnt clogged up with ads

    they don't seem to mind, i still get 8-10k unique a day, which is what i've always gotten... I kinda judge it by how i feel about the ads on different blogs that i read. Personally I hate the blogs that put the 250x250 square ads in the middle of a post, id rather it's up and out of the way of the actual content. I could see it being annoying, but people are clicking it so somethings working...

    also adsense goes off the content on the page
    I used to put stuff about hosting and that on my sites that dealt with that and it increased my cpc from like a couple cents to a couple dollars.
