We rolled out a few small changes to the site today --
1. The ask a question form now has the same new design as create a hub. We've also added a second field for clarifying your question. Our recommendation is to keep the question relatively short (like something you might search for in a search engine), and then add details below.
2. My account - unpublished hubs are once again red, sorry about that.
3. Google AdSense -- Previously in the author's share of impressions we ran up to the standard maximum number of ads that Google allows (3 regular ads, plus 2 link units). Google recently gave us permission to display more regular ads, so we are testing that out. So, you may now see more full size ads on your hubs.
Many Hubbers have reported higher earnings since we rolled out the redesign last month. We're hoping this change pushes things up another notch.
As always, if you notice anything strange or broken please let us know.
Also good news about Adsense. This may explain why when I am in the Adsense page all my Page Impressions are a multiple of 2 today - thsi increased number of ads isn't an Adsense standard and so it is counted as twice as many page impressions. Or maybe it's just coincidence!
I believe that's a side effect of the way google implements it. Every other ad network but AdSense reports are based on ad unit impressions rather than page impressions. I'd recommend looking at that metric instead.
