Add Placement Proved Not To Work.

    I never moan, in fact I am a quiet little thing, but I must admit that I noticed one thing recently. Ever since they have moved the Ads to the side panel I have lost about 30 dollars over the month. Fact. Please can you put the Ads back where they were? Most of my old hubs have the Ads in the top right column. But the newer ones don't. If you are trying it out then I can definitely state that it doesn't work in the side column. Nobody is taking any notice of it. Now I will go back to being quiet again. um!

      I am a newbie so I don't necessarily have a lot of knowledge, but in my websites prior to the hubpages, placement of ads was a priority and effective according to position.

      I agree - my earnings are down, CPM is down.
      Please restore the ad 250x250 top right.
      This ad is my main money earner and I design my layout to get maximum revenue from it. About 50% of my revenue come from this ad.
      Traffic is down so its time to restore this ad as there has been no traffic boost.

        Same here Nell.  I make it a point never to us the top right space for Photos to make sure the are is available for ads. This is discouraging.

      Thanks for this query so much, i am having the same concern and i thought it was happening with me only, i tried all types of formatting my hub capsules so that those ads appear in the text but in vain. All my recent posts are without ads now. i mailed the team at HP for what was wrong along with the snapshot but they said " ad layout and placement is dependent upon how your Hub is formatted as well (not all ads can be placed in all layouts)."

      Looks like the ads are going to be removed for MONTHS!

    Hi and readers

    I read on Hubpages that only the bottom right, last add is payable. I tried to find the article and source to no avail. Perhaps someone else can remember who wrote it.

      This is the way it works. The ad that is removed is highlighted.

    Advertisement is the kind in the ad world.

    I don't like all the bells and whistles we are seeing on the ads.  I also don't like the fact that the Ads which are placed on my Hubs are relevant to some of my own personal searches and are not anything to do with the things which I have been writing about on HubPages.   The blue writing which takes people off your site is also more obvious that the Ads placed on the site - in fact, this is the first thing you see.  It is also irritating to have to scroll half way down the page to tweet which we never had to do before.
    Now I shall be quiet!

      Ads show are based on your seaches, if I view one of your hubs ads related to my seaches will be shown.

    Not being as observant as you are Nell, I didn't put two and two together to realize why the drop in earnings.  I have to totally agree with sallybea...when I'm writing a hub about say, butterflies, what good is an ad for pool supplies?  Doesn't make much sense.

      Hi Mary (Tillsontitan) I once asked the question about ad´s that weren´t related to the content I was writing about and a fellow hubber said that certain ad´s would be related to searches I had recently done. For instance I had been looking for online florists so I could send flowers to a sick friend and ad´s for Interflora kept coming up un my completely unrelated hubs, eg not home or gardening subjects, when I viewed them.

        Zactly b2b...I was looking for a pond filter and that add really didn't have anything to do with my hub about Academy Awards wink

    I don't like the change either and I have noticed less income recently. I'm glad you brought this up as I can't see how it benefits Hubpages or us either.

      Hi Pamela, me neither, we will just have to wait and see, unfortunately.

        Seems the last laugh is on me.  I just had an advisory note from HubPages saying that my hub about Skype was in danger of being unpublished if i did not change the links on the page.  The ads related to phones which use Skype, (android phones).  I have now replaced these ads so it is clear that the phones are Skype phones and blow me down, what do I see, some Filipino Women inserted on my Hub - talk about hypocrisy, these women are nothing to do with Skype phones.  I don't think these ads enhance the subject at all, unless of course, they all use Skype!!!  I am against sexual exploitation of women anyway so why on earth should we have to put up with them?

    Okay put me down as one of those whose ecpm, rpm whatever Google is calling it now has bottomed.
    I have blogs kicking the crap outta my Hub Page earnings now and that has rarely ever happened.
    And the drop in money started when the tinkering started.
    So knock it off.
