Studies have shown that ads above the fold are those most commonly clicked. Maybe HP should consider altering ads to be above the fold.
Ad Placements (Best to Worst): Embedded in content, top of page, right side bar, left side bar, below the fold, footer.
HubPages will show ads above the fold if you only have a text capsule at the top of your Hubs. If you opt to put a second capsule on the right-hand side of your first text capsule, you're the one making the decision to push the ads down the page.
