Another Silly Ad Question

    I'm fairly new here.  What a cool community!

    But ... though I've managed to find the sticky pink thread, and the techy stuff is relatively easy to figure out (so far), there's one teensy question I haven't been able to resolve:

    Profit-wise, is it more -- or less -- advantageous for me to set ads to "High?"  Or does it make an innocent, non-commercial Hub look tacky?

    None of my Hubs actually sell a product or service; in fact, I really don't aim too hard for commercial appeal. I'm much more interested in sharing information and improving my writing.  But I wouldn't be too deeply offended if a bit of cash wafted my way!

    I've started putting all mine on high. The ad volume is not that bad.

    If you have any external links (except to things like Wikipedia) you are supposed to set it to "high" anyway. The definition of "commercial" covers a large proportion of Hubs. If you link to your own blog or your photos on Flickr, for example, you should set it to "high".

    I have only lowered it on my poetry Hubs, because I don't want ads across the middle of a poem (and they don't link anywhere).

    Thanks, Uninvited Writer and Inspirepub!

    Great advice.  All my Hubs are set to High, and I'll just keep on doing that ... unless I really really want to make sure certain passages go uninterrupted.
