    Hubpages has chosen to place a skyscraper ad directly to the right of our content. Then they placed their own search ads directly below that which means that the share buttons are less visible as many people will not see them that far below buried under those ads.

    I am imploring Hubpages staff and management to move up the share buttons to the top of the skyscraper. That super colorful ad will not be drowned out by the shares because it's a graphic ad but the shares are being drowned out by the ad, which means less traffic from social sharing.

    Alternatively you could use share chiclets instead of counters and place them directly below our avatar.

      I will bring up both suggestions in our next community meeting.

      @Cardisa
      We discussed this in our community meeting today and have decided at this time to not change the location of the social sharing buttons.

    That ad should be moved down as there's already one header ad. It's just too much of ads. People are more likely to click it after they've read their share of information not just come on your page and click out.

      I agree Brandon. Informational pages do not need as many ads because if people are going to click, there is the likely chance that one or two ads will pick up the keywords in your article and display the ad you want.

      There are instances with so many ads that three or more of them are the exact same thing.

        That's true and I wouldn't want even product review hubs to be full of ads as there are already amazon and/or ebay capsules present

          On my last count there were eight or nine ads on  page. That's too much. Reminds me of a parked page/site.

    However, I love how the "share" buttons follow the article down the page.  This new addition seems to have REALLY helped my last article take off on FB.  Please keep the "floating share" buttons!!
