Is there any benefit in putting text in different capsules ?
Is there any difference in page view and ad placement?
If you use two text capsules you will get a line of google ads in between them. I think you have to have your google ads set on "high" for that to happen. Another benefit of using multiple capsules is that it breaks up the text for your readers and makes it easier on the eyes.
Since it will not add to the number of page view, I think there is no point in increasing the ad placement. What do you think?
It will help with your possible adsense clicks if your hub is layed out properly.
Why do you want page views? You make money when people click on the ads in your Hubs. The better placed the ads are, the better chance you have of getting clicks.
Splitting up text over several capsules enables you to do much better layouts - you can float photos and revenue capsules to the right, or put other capsules between.
Gosh, I would think that it does not matter how good your add placement is, if you do not get any page views nobody is going to click on the adds.
In my opinion, you need both good add placement, & you need the page views to to see the adds.
A very old, but still very relevent marketing rule of thumb. Of the people that view your product 10% will purchase. So if only 10% are in the target market, you need a lot of page views to get that 10% to convert to sales.
Bottom line, you need good add placement, but that is pointless if you do not get targeted page views.
Yes Paul, but Jacob was saying there was no point in increasing ad placement BECAUSE it wouldn't increase his traffic. Basic flaw in logic there, I'm sure you will agree.
Yes, I do agree with your thoughs about that. I also think that it is better to spread the adds over several capsules.
I set up my hubs to have them spread evenly over the page, and over several capsules.
Then work my butt off to get as many page views as possible from the target market. However that is a whole other topic. LOL.
it may not add to the number of page views, but it may add to the length of page views, which could have a direct correlation to your ads. If someone clicks on your hubs and sees long sections of unbroken text, they may not even stick around to read it, even if they are interested in the topic. If, the hub is more pleasing to the eye, however, readers might hang around for longer each time, giving your ads more of a chance to be noticed and utilized.
Ad placement is the most important thing in your little Hub world, Jacob. If you do get a click and its on the way bottom of the page you might get 10 cents. If that same ad was up on the top, slightly down on the right, you might see upwards of $2 for the same topic/ad. Text placement helps the human component search and use the page, don't tailor just to spider bots.
I think you are wrong, because better ad placement provides more clicks, which will provide you more money. In addition to better, more strategically placed ads, a higher number of ads will increase the likelihood of clicks in the first place.
All of that is in addition to the ability to carefully select ebay and amazon sales next to relevant items without it becoming obtrusive.
You don't get paid for page views. Make your ads count.
Well, thats not guite true, you dont get paid very well for page views, but some ads do pay per impression, my sites make about .25 usd a day from impressions, nothing to write home about, but its better than 0.00
Im guessing the OP, just used the term page view to refer to traffic
That's a little bit pedantic, don't you think?
You say that some ads do pay per impression? How do you get those ads? I have not seen that here before.
Thanks for the information, I never thought like that.
Thanks a lot....
I think its not the amount of hubs you post its the info in the hubs, if you know different please don't yell the reply but write it nicely!

Just wondering.. my traffic has dropped 38% again from April to May, 18% from March to April, and 29% from Feb to March. Is this just me or is it site wide? Anyone?

I don't get much traffic, but I'm proud of what I do get. Every morning and night I take note of the number of views to see what my numbers were. My page views are not adding up to my impressions I'm getting paid for....

I am still getting full-width Google ads in the middle of my pages, messing up the layout.The impact of this is that it looks like the Hub is only a few paragraphs long, and readers are unlikely to scroll down far...

It is my understanding that we are only entitled to have two Amazon Ads on a Hub. I still see many Hubs with more than two Ads and also Hubs with several capsules which contain two Ads each. What is...

I've asked this before and got no response from HQ so I'm asking again because I hate what these ads are doing to my Hubs. When an ad is inserted between 2 text capsules (usually the first and second) it's often a tall...

Ok so to keep this short, approx 25% of my page views are giving a page impression IE an AD showing which gives the chance to be clicked on. This seems low, and has been about 25% for the last 2 months.Any ideas on how...
