Are ads only placed in the vertical position at the far right, outside of the hub text now? I just noticed on several of my hubs and others. I thought it was just me and began to tweak text and rearrange capsules to see if they would come back, but they didn't. Did I miss or overlook this change?...

I have said this in the past, but my CTR for Google adsense has taken a turn for the worst. It seems to be getting worse and worse. I do not know why this is happening. Today was a record low for CTR for me. Does anyone else have a low click through ratio rate? (Do not post exact, not...
