Placing Adsense Ads on Top Right after new Ad Format good or bad?

    Hello fellow hubbers, hope you all are doing fine!!
    Over past few weeks i have noticed a few changes in the hubs format, while the sharing buttons have gone down (which is a big letdown) I have also seen one more ad coming on the extreme right hand side apart from the google adsense ad.

    I hope this new ad is good from earning point of view, but now i just wished to know from HUB PAGES and the Fellow Hubbers: is it good to have two ads on the same side? As you can see in the pic, one ad is of 'first cry' and the other of 'health kart'. I am pretty sure, none will click on two adjacent ads at the same time, so please tell what needs to be done in such a case?

      I usually put a Made For Pinterest image there.

        Best advice +1

        By placing an image at the top or top right, you force the Google ad to a lower position.

      Thanks for being so observant and pointing this out!

      Google doesn't like "too many ads above the fold" so I'm not too happy with those two ads at the top of the page.  As Wry says, it's a good place for a Made for Pinterest image.

        Thanks Marisa, i am thinking now to go with an image as you and Wry has also pointed out, perhaps that is the way out, but it also implies editing all the previous hubs too.

          Yes, I was thinking the same thing.  I have been meaning to get into making "Made for Pinterest" images but haven't had the energy to go back and put them on all my Hubs - maybe this will give me a kick to get it done!

      Well, if visitors miss one, chances are they won't miss the other. Can't be that they miss both, right? Unless they are blind, LOL.

      WryLit makes a good point. You have some control over the placement of the 250x250 (square ad in the content of the Hub) ad. If you place a right-aligned photo capsule at the top right of your Hub's content, it will push that ad further down the page. You can find more info on reordering capsules here: http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/usin … d_14092610

      Hope this helps!

        Thanks a lot Marina, i have been doing what you said, till now i have not been putting a photo capsule on the top right, rather i used to leave that space for advt. box (someone said in one of the forums it is best place for ads). But now i would have to place a photo there due to one more ad in the same position.,

    I've always placed a capsule or image in that space.  Signed out of the site, it looks too spammy without some kind of content in that space.
