    This hub mainly suggest ads can be placed in different places of hubpages. I have discussed a little bit about CTR too. In the terms of use Google prohibits to disclose any confidential information.

    ":7.Confidentiality:

    (b) click-through rates or other statistics relating to Property performance in the Program provided to You by Google;"

    I did not use any data provided by Google but did an estimate in the first paragraph. Do you think it was a violation of term?

    Here is the hub.

      As you do not have a google adsense account, I do not see how you can be violating their TOS because it prohibits you from sharing actual information provided to you by google - what can they do - close your account? lol

      On the other hand - as you do not have a google adsense account - you are completely unqualified to write about this subject. wink

        Well, if I take of the estimate it will be fine I think. I can only discuss the experiment with the layout then.

          What experiment is this?

            lol lol not actually an experiment. I thought banner ads on top of hub was a great discovery but seems like not sad

            But, you know everyday at least 10 times I answer how to place the ads on top of the hub. So, I decided to write the hub. sad

      It may not actually violate the google ToS, but it may not exactly help you get adsense.

      It was about the language... the language you are using says you know these things are true... if you change the language to say these are made up figures to illustrate your post, then there are no problems that I can see.

    Mark makes a pretty valid point. It's a bit strange to be recommending something to folks that you haven't tested yourself and verified whether it actually translates into a better CTR.

      I understand it. I will thoroughly edit it. Thanks.

    There's a big difference between knowing the pat answers that are given out on this board and actually knowing how to maximize google adsense revenue. This is becoming a sore point with me. Too many people here pretending to be experts on money making, who aren't making money.

      Sorry to be the cause of your annoyance. Your point is very valid and understandable. I have taken the hub off.

      But due honor to you all let me explain something. I was just trying to explain how ads can be placed in different places of a hubpage that is helpful for new hubbers. At the same time it was in my mind that I need to attract traffic from search engines and get some odd clicks [when I get an adsense]. My thought was that when someone would find this hub they would either join hubpage clicking one of my tracker or move away perhaps clicking an ad as they won't find it helpful for their website or anything they were searching for. When I am writing a hub I am not supposed to let my reader understand that I have no practical experience with the thing I am explaining. So, the tone set for the hub was to convince the reader and attract some SE traffic, not to declare myself as a self pretended expert.This is also to be noted that this is a common superstition that money related hubs make more money. I admit that I was a stupid to write this hub.

      Now you would tell me to write what I know. But to be honest I neither have enough life experience nor enough knowledge to write on anything that I know well and can earn money. I can write poems and on some sensitive issues with expertise none of which helps an affiliate to earn money. I can write product hubs but on what? Will you suggest me to write on things that I have never seen in my life?

      Whatever I will try to brush up myself and come up with something effective.

      My apology for triggering your disgust. I hope I have clarified my side.


      Happy New Year
      Thank You All

        Hi Saleheen,

        my message is just to say I am impressed by your response, honesty and integrity.

        Respect to you.

          Hello Mark, have a great new year and keep entertaining all. smile

        Well, OK.

        Why not write about how you learned english so well? What techniques did you use? What resources did you use?

        Look, you can make a living out of just that suggestion. There are hundreds of millions of people who want to learn english and/or another foreign language. There is a lot of money to be made in that niche.


        Where are the best places for tourists to go in your country?

        Are you interested in sports? Which sports?

        I don't know about your interests... what you like personally... but each and every interest you have can be turned into money.

          Thank you for the suggestions. I will concentrate on these. Have a great new year.

            To be honest, I hope you don't concentrate on my suggestions, I hope you write what you want to write.

            If that means you can't monetize your account with adsense... that's fine: there are a hundred other ways to make money.

            And I hope you have a really good, happy year.

        It's true that some of the really big money-earners on HubPages are writing product Hubs - but that's not the only way to make money.

        Look at Relache's Hubs. She pays her rent with her Hubs.  She doesn't write product Hubs, she writes about what she knows. 

        Try it - write some good Hubs about a variety of subjects, monitor them for a few months and see which ones attract readers.  Then write more on those subjects.

        Have you lost your Adsense account, or do you just need to qualify?

          I need to qualify sad

          I am trying what you have suggested. smile I hope Google will accept me soon.

          If they don't I will create my own site and monetize with other affiliate networks but I will wait at least few more months before that. My current plan is to create a blog, write on different platforms and try with each one, one after one. I have more patience than Google. smile

          Thank you.

            In that case, if you write good content then you should have no problems.  Remember that most Hubs don't attract many readers in their first few months anyway - so even if you had Adsense, they wouldn't be earning much.  By the time you get approved, your Hubs should be getting decent traffic so will start earning straight away.

            You're more likely to get accepted if you apply using your own website, provided it already has some good content, so I recommend you get to work on that now.

        I don't see why you can't write a hub about the best ways to design a hub for maximum ad placement.  Just because you haven't made money from adsense ads doesn't mean that you don't know about them. 
        You've helped me with a couple hubs to get better ads.

    I think it is not a violation as you are giving only the estimate of CTR. What I am thinking is google prohibits to disclose the actual CTR. It is my thought.

    Any way my advice

    You are already having some bad time in getting adsense account.

    so why don't you stay away from some controversial hubs and topics.

    You have so many things that you can write about that you have unique knowledge and a precious viewpoint. Try to build on that. I know it's frustrating for you to want adsense so badly and not have access. But you might have to find other ways to make money online. And as you do, that indeed might make for interesting reading.

    Why not regularly join the HubMob?  I don’t write much anymore since I went back to work, but HubMob has inspired most of my hubs, and given me a backlog of hub ideas. 

    Many weeks I initially thought I had no interest in the topic launched on Monday.  By Wednesday, an idea would start forming.  By Friday I would have 2 or 3 ideas.  You can start reading HubMob hubs early in the week to see the different directions hubbers go with on HubMob topics.  I especially enjoy hubs that are on topic, but go in an interesting and unusual direction. 

    I often have many leftover hub ideas on topics that inspire me right away.  Thanks to HubMob, I’ll never run out of ideas to write on, because HubMobs give me more ideas than I can keep up with!
