While its taller brother earns more clicks (the 300 X 1050 Portrait Ad) this is the most common vertical banner that is found in peoples side-bars.

Because of its tall and thin format, why not consider using it in a location alongside your content, but not in the sidebar, but located on the left or right-hand side of the page that the content is on! If you have a long bullet point list you could use this ad-unit along-side of it making the best out of a placement that might have otherwise been white space. This location is not going to be for everyone, but it is a great way to fill up some blank space.

As always the best location for this ad type and all ads are different from blog to blog, site to site and should always be A/B tested rather than taken as gospel. If you have a question about this post or anything else Adsense related do let me know in the comments below.
