For the first time ever, I have noticed a large strip of adsense ads running down to the right of a hub... underneath the tags.
Is this a good thing? I felt that there were enough already?
Ok so now they are not showing, that was strange... something to do with Yieldbuild I guess. In that case, feel free to ignore this thread!
I have it in several of my hubs. And one about www.america.org.
I just saw the strip on one of your hubs! I have never seen it on mine before, and dont want them there to be honest, I dont think that extra adsense ads is going to increase revenue... if anything it could decrease revenue, there was enough already. How long have you been getting them?
I think I started seeing them this month. First it was just the Yield Build, now the strip on the .org.
i saw a huge one yesterday on tons of peoples hubs, including my own that was never even slightly related to the topic
i took a screenshot and meant to make a similar forum post
well, im joining the service! so, i think it was a good ad for hubpages authors to see

I saw some posts by hubstaff a week or so back about testing msn ads and maybe other publisher networks on Hubpages share of impressions, I assumed these ads were related, I never figured out whether it was an adsense ad or another network..got distracted and forgot about it until this post
its def an ugly ad that makes some of my hopefully more somber hubs on insurance seem spammy
Maybe they're just trying to fill up the white spaces on the side of the hub? It makes sense from a business point of view but it will definitely clutter up the hub.
I'll be interested to see how this test works out for HubPages. Hopefully if it pans out well, then we will share the additional impressions. I wouldn't mind giving up the white space.
I'm flattered if readers like my writing, but it pays better if they click an ad. There are plenty of popular magazine style blogs out there that have every square inch of white space monetized.
As long as the pop-ups or the movable ads are never used...that's where I would object.
ryan, that was your 2000th post! is this a similar ad to what you saw?
Lol, so it was. Actually that wasnt the ad I saw, it was one of those vertical strips with about 5 or 6 text ads.... just like the ones that you can put down the side of a blogger blog.
I havent seen any increase in revenue since I noticed these... in fact the opposite, I may start switching all my hubs to 'Medium' advertisting; particularly when hubpages feels it ok not to announce this change. Its still my content, unless the changes to TOS change that too?
A long time ago - many months ago - there was a topic that adsense had given hubpages permission to have an extra adsense ad - more than 3 on one page. It was then that I noticed a leaderboard across the top of my hubs.
Whne you saw that post, i think hubpages already had that permission (premium publisher)
When the leaderboard displays, than the large square in the right sidebar does not.
In this case a new ad placement has recently appeared at the lowest point in the right sidebar
Hubs has mentioned that they are testing other networks and adsense itself has recently announced they opened up their network to other select ad publishers not just adwords - im not sure how we would ever tell the difference, we will still get credit for the clicks as always
lots of changes, kind of wish hubs was more transparent about some of this stuff
as long as they are bigger ads filling that space. I hate doing a search and going to a page and seeing nothing but ads and you have to search to find the info you searched for. it's very annoying. I end up leaving the page quickly.
I wonder if these bigger ads are impression ones, I still don't get the huge traffic that makes for daily clicks but I can make a penny or two if I do get good traffic and no clicks. I assume these are for the impression ads, something like we get a fraction of a penny from each impression to that ad we make.
Im not sure, I doubt that we get anything at all from the ones that sunforged spotted; they are not even Adsense ads, and I sure dont have an affiliate code for them! Why doesnt hubpages communicate these things? They have a 'communicator of awesomeness'.... and a so called community person.... yet the important things fail to be communicated.
I honestly do not know, I do know that I will keep an eye on the forums here and if you folks who have changed your hubs to medium ad levels do better for it I will give it a try on a few of mine too. Thats the one thing about you guys, you keep me up to date on most stuff to do with my hubs if I just check out the forums from time to time so thanks!

Currently my hubs are running ads through both the HP ad program and Google Adsense (External Affiliate). I am thinking of disabling the Adsense ads on a few hubs only considering that it will raise the CPM of HP ads....

Hi,Can you tell me why I have to have my Hub covered with distracting Adsense Ads just because I have a single link to a free content website?The whole purpose of Adsense is to place Ads that are related to the content...

I'm sure I'm not alone in this. When I open a page I do not want it to start talking to me or playing music unless I press play. I really hate those adverts that are like a TV advert and appear on the page, and start...
