Well, don't know how "sudden" they were...
I've discovered white spaces that weren't there before in two hubs. Hadn't visited either of them in around a month.
My guess is that HP adjusted some width(s) a character or two. Sometimes that's all it takes for the automatic ad placements to then throw everything out of whack.
Could be wrong about the cause. Whatever. At any rate, something to watch out for.
I just checked a couple of my Hubs paradigmsearch, and I seem to have those spaces also. Maybe it is HP but perhaps Google is making adjustments of some type.
You are right. I think ad length can alter things; in fact, I think I just saw it happen. It's also occurred to me that font changes could cumulatively shorten or lengthen a text capsule by a line or two. That could also be enough to trigger ad-placement adjustment sometimes, which could result in new white spaces.
It's not Google.
Are you noticing this to the left of an Amazon ad? When HP moved single Amazon ads to the right, it left a big hole in the copy content on the left. You have to write more content to get it to even out.
I seem to remember reading on another thread that this is linked to the volume of traffic your hubs collectively get over a 24 hour period.
If the views (over all your hubs together) drop below a certain figure (not sure how many that is), then only one of your AdSense ads is shown at the bottom of your hub. As soon as the collective views go up, the second ad magically reappears.
Hopefully, someone else will add to this thread and be able to confirm (or deny!) this.

I sent a link to someone for a hub and they said it wasn't there. I just looked and everyone of them has been disabled due to being overly promotional.These hubs have been up for years with no problemHas this happened to anyone else?

So I'm going through my Hubs and making sure they are mobile/desktop friendly. I noticed that a lot of my hub capsules have ridiculous amounts of spaces to them after the paragraph ends. It makes it so there is a bunch of white space between the sections of my Hubs. Has anyone else noticed this?...

This week, several of my older hubs received comments. My delight upon hearing the news was short lived. All of them are written in horrid grammar and about half of them are clearly spam--either nonsensical code-like characters or advertisements for products not mentioned in my Hubs. Is anyone else...

Are they all over the comments in your hubs? Are you deleting them? I had one in a link I had and how can you correct those? It is like correcting a quote isn't it? What is this all about? We can't stop it can we?

I've read in the forums before that writers should get rid of any white/empty spaces in Hubs and that this will help get traffic, make it look good for Google. At least that's how I remember the logic going. Is this true and, if it is, why?
