Does turning adds off effect page rank of a Hub?

    Today I turned ads off on a few off my poor performing hubs with the assumption that It will increase their page ranking in Google due to a decrease in on page links.
    Is that really going to effect page ranks of hubs?

      Google PageRank only has to do with incoming links (backlinks).  So, ad links on a Hub have nothing to do with PageRank.

      If you are talking about a Hub's ranking on search engine results pages, the number and placement of ads does have an effect.  But, since all Hubs have the same number and placement of ads (except for affiliate links and Amazon/eBay capsules inserted by authors), turning off HP ads is not going to affect your Hub's SERP rankings.

        ThankYou for the reply ..... I was wondering if some more experienced hubber could advice on it and you did the job

      Great minds think alike. I am also in the process of conducting the same experiment. At my last count, there are 28 ad links per hub. I consider it astounding that HP gets away with that, not that I'm complaining. By my turning off some of the ads, my subdomain has less ads per capita than everyone else. Thus, my subdomain should be more loved. I started this experiment at the beginning of February; so far, no additional love.

        Keep us updated!   If you do start to see an uptick in traffic, a lot more of us would turn off the ads too.  Since my Hubpage ad program earnings are so low, I wouldn't be losing much if I did turn them off, but more traffic could mean more sales.
