silly (maybe) question

    hello. I am new and still finding my way around, although I have a flashlight smile

    my question is, in my last HUB, for some reason it appended my profile photo instead of the image in my HUB that actually goes with my HUB, a heart made out of sidewalk chalk.

    does anyone know why this happened? I mean, has it happened to you, and if so, how did you resolve it?

    thanks very much!

    Hmmmm (not a silly question!)....that may be because the sidewalk chalk picture is so small? I haven't seen this before, actually. I would try it with a larger picture, give it 10 minutes or so to update and then see if your profile pic is still displayed.

    Welcome to HubPages! big_smile

    another odd event at this hub.

    The current google image ad is "Barn Owl Pellets"

    -no joke!

    Look

    i know, i saw that. i have no idea what that is...is it a real ad? so far i am not a Google hubber yet, although i am pending approval.

    anyway i have tried all kinds of things to resolve this, including girly_girl's, to no avail.

    O unhappy day ;_;

      I checked out your hub, take the heart avatar make it half width and move the pic to the upper right hand corner where they adds now appear, utilize your little green arrows and it will plant it self next to your hub. This will eliminate the problem. smile

    When I look at your hub, I see your avatar where it should be and the sidewalk chalk picture in the middle of the hub.

    in the list of HUBS, for some reason with just this one, instead of the image in the HUB itself (blue heart) appearing beside the HUB title in the list of HUBS, the profile image appears:

    it's not that big a deal; i just wondered what might be causing this and if anyone else ever experienced a similar problem.

    thanks!

    I think that you have the hub currently configured with only two capsules. Both aligned full width

    1 text followed by one photo

    t

    p


    separate the one text capsule into- 2 capsules

    t

    t  p


    and align photo right, I think that will correct that for you


    I think you should write more, put some amazon capsules with chalk in them

    and a video of some great chalk art anyway...
    .. at the minumum

    Move your image up to the top and side it with your first text module and move your amazon module up to where your image is now that way people will see it and be more tempted to purchase from it.

    Text > Picture
    Text > Amazon

    You know, i didnt even realize you had an amazon module below the comments.

    Most other people wont either


    Richard:

    There is a big reason why none of us have recommended to place the image in the most obvious location,as you have, by leaving that location empty of modules, yieldbuild will always place a large adsense unit there for you.

    I think you know that (from the layout of your hubs, which i have read quite a few) but it should be pointed out for the OP

      I actually get good clicks (and sales) from products featured below the comments. I don't always do this, but it does work for some.

        Most likely your "good clicks" would be excellent clicks if they were showcased above the fold

        You could be an exception! and dont mess with it if it works...but no it is not a suggested formula

        This is the Google heat map - brightest reds are the most effective placement

        On a hub, that very first possible ad in the first text capsule is very desirable


        adsense clicks on her page can average between .05 and 80 cts./pc   with her title keywords pushing the 70 cent range

        the holy grail of her content is "chalk holder" at 1.16

        Amazon - 4-6% of 5 to 6 dollar items is not more desirable in my experience. Thats 20-30 cents per sale, id put my layout towards adsense on this topic

      True for longer hubs but since this is a short hub the picture in the upper right would be a good placement and if there is only one text module being used then the larger google ad will appear below the picture. 

      Besides, it's the chalk in the Amazon module that she would rather sell than the few pennies she may earn from google. So move the Amazon module up above the comments so your viewers know you have something to sell.
