I want old adsense layout for those who are not interested in hubpages new ad program but only interested in adsense.
If hubpages team provide an opportunity for this everyone will be happy with regard to CTR.
What do yo think?
Hullo TopUniverse! You do have the option to leave off the HubPages Ad Program and just go with AdSense... are you suggesting something else, though?
It is true that one link unit has been removed in the all-AdSense layout, however that has been done to improve site navigation. I'm not sure what the performance stats were on those link-units, but if those were the ones the team decided to take out, I imagine that they didn't do us a whole lot of good.
But I might have misunderstood, so do clarify if I was wrong in understanding the suggestion... I've got Friday brain...
Ya. You have misunderstood my point.
Simply I like the first layout in the above picture. (It is fine no need for link units). But I highly recommend 468 X 60 adsense unit just below the title.
My CTR (probably others too) is very very poor after removal of the 468 X 60 adsense unit.
From Feb 23 gogole panda hits everyone and later hubpages new ad layout (which kills my most adsense clicks) hit us very hard.
What else next?
So my point is bring back first layout in the above picture for those who are not interested in HubPages Ad Program.( No problem regarding the removal of adsense link unit)
Although, the new layout does seem to have really hurt CTR, it was a necessary change.
It was quite clear with the first Panda Update that a overload of advertising, especially google adsense, within content was a unifying string in all of the major sites that were damaged greatly in the Google Search returns.
It was a smart move to quickly experiment with new layouts.
Low CTR sucks! but higher CTR on 0 visits is not better.
But, an even smarter move is to actually experiment with new ad layouts, so I hope to see some variety in the placement of these decreased number of ad modules. If this site maintains the layout shown in the diagram above which by anecdotal evidence seems to have slashed CTR considerably, then they will have made only one change and will never know if it in fact was a beneficial one or even the best one.
I can't tell you why it is working out, but all my hubs have been left unchanged in layout since I started 2 years ago.
Adsense and hubpage ads are both working well together, and although I took a dive when the panda hit, and another one when Australia got hit, both are settling down pretty well and adsense figures are getting back to normal.
Well im glad to see someone thinks thats worth spamming as Ive been writing about them for months, hope they pick up soon!
(since it will be removed and I dont want to quote it, there is a huge chunk of spam text links above earnests post)

Hi, what was you maximum earning with HubPages Ad Program in a month (not google adsense)? Is it possible to make much money with this program? Thanks.

Pretty frustrating when I get a significant traffic spike only to see CPM values plummet. My Google Analytics stay steady for the most part as far as page time, bounce rate and things of that nature. Why does this...

I noticed that CPMs are really low so I decided to just start a test where I would just be running AdSense ads only and it's only day one, only one data point, but so far I'm already out-earning my HubAds...

Are ad settings totally controlled by HubPages or do the settings in my Adsense account have a bearing on what will be displayed? If so, is it a good idea to select categories relevant to a niche site?
