New ad placement does me no justice

    Okay, I must say, that I almost liked the other layout before.
    There are two video/image ads at the VERY BOTTOM of the page.
    MOST people reading the article are out of there and don't bother
    to comment or care about Amazon and everything else. Why can't these
    ads be placed up higher?

    Please...I have lost almost half of my earnings since these new placements.
    I'm sure there are others too.

      There are many factors that effect ad earnings. The new ad placement is not one of them. You can refer to the thread re: ads in the comments, http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/99180 for a full discussion of ads on Hubs and the testing that we did to determine the optimal ad layout.

      One thing to look at is your traffic. Starting in May, overall Internet traffic goes down because of northern hemisphere summer.

        Okay, I will look. I just really don't like to the two ads at the bottom of the page. I really feel like those will never be looked at. I don't think anyone hardly scrolls down to the bottom after they get their information of what they need.

          Then after some time here, you may well find that your guesswork is flawed. If your articles are engaging and interesting, then readers will actually read right through them. The placement of those ads is primarily for those parties that read right through your work... if you can make sense of this.

          Ultimately... the Performance of your ads relies completely on You. If you write well.. your readers will potentially see those ads... if you don't, they won't! Bit of a no brainer isn't it? smile

          weezychannel, although the number of impressions of those ads is low compared to the others in the page, when they do get clicked, the clicks are worth a lot more. The ads that appear there tend to have high CPCs.

          As such, we found in our testing, that it was an easy way to add an additional ad unit to the page, one that gets more $, but has no negative impact to the reader. Win-win.

        Hello MickiS I was interested in the link you posted here, but I keep getting a 404 when I follow it. Will it resolve if I check back later?

          Thanks, ngureco.

          2uesday, I edited my link so it should work now. Sorry for the typo.

    When you sign out there is an ad placement on the very top of the page. If you make your first paragraph long enough and move pictures down to the second text capsule you will get an Adsense ad beside it.
