I have finally got better ad placement on all my hubs, but after peeking at fellow hubbers, they seem to have many more. Is it just a matter of personal taste?
Depends on what you're doing.
An informational hub is best left with just Adsense throughout and maybe one or two Amazon items partway through or at the bottom.
Sales hubs (those aimed at people buying such as "ten best socks for women") usually work best when the reader has a lot of choice.
Well, that explains it! I haven't ventured into writing a sales based hub yet. Thanks, WryLilt.
Any reason why you say that, Wry? If I have an informational Hub, I include as many Amazon or eBay capsules as make sense - i.e. if there is a directly relevant product per text capsule, I would just do it!
I guess what you're saying is that for informational Hubs, there are less likely to be highly relevant products (and there's no point in using an Amazon or eBay capsule unless the product is highly relevant). But some do - for instance, I'm thinking of a travel Hub where you are mentioning different places - you might offer a book on each place.
I started out with informational hubs and I have at least 100 (maybe even 200). I've discovered that no matter how hard I try, I rarely if ever sell Amazon items on them, no matter where I place them on the hub or even if it's a high traffic hub (300+ views/day).
Amazon hubs, on the other hand, will net me at least 1 sale per 150 views and often 3-5.
So I only put Amazon items at the bottom of info hubs now, because they add to the words that google crawls.
However it may just be my topics and content. I haven't done travel hubs so people who are planning to travel may be in more of a buying mood.
I try to think about what I would be looking for if I searched. Do I want to see pictures or words? Just a couple words or a lot, for this topic.
I have high traffic hubs that I just threw Kontera on to, just to see how Kontera is.
I currently have Google Adsense and Amazon ads on my hubs. I tried to choose items for Amazon that were related to my topics, even though I am not placing the ads on sales related hubs. My goal is to have ads on the hub, without taking away from what I am trying to say.
I'm throwing more and more (as in extra ones) amazon ads into my hubs daily.
I am trying all sorts of different hubs right now, it is hard to say what works good and what works great.
There are some tricky amazon ads that are really worth bringing out. The ones that say "too low to display" I love those ads. It makes ME want to click it. Now whether or not they buy something, who cares, but its better than that person just looking at your site and leaving.
If their mom comes on later and orders something off of Amazon, you get money for it!

In a word: adverts! I was just looking at some older hubs and realised I have lots of Amazon and eBay ads alongside the text or in blocks. I remember doing this now having seen some past high-earner Hubbers having lots...

I have 4 hubs that are unfeatured, and no matter how I try imporving them, they remain unfeatured. Some of them are high scorers: One of them scored 88 today and yet it is still unfeatured. I can't...

I know we are all here to make some money, but having 10 ads on a page slows down loading time to such an extent that readers just don't have the patience to wait for a page to load. So they click away without...

Had never done a “sales” hub before so decided to try. Have tweaked and tweaked this hub but it still keeps on being not featured due to quality. Getting a little T’d . . . http://geminifox.hubpages.com/hub/Green...
