Can we get some Adsense Link Units?

    I know we don't control the ad placements or settings but I was wondering if maybe Hubpages staff could enable adsense link units?

    In my experience even one adsense link unit placed not too far from the title of a page results in better earnings than most of the other placements/types combined. It's also non-intrusive as the visitor has to click on an ad unit link but then also has to click on an ad(two clicks) and so if they don't like the ads(or click accidentaly) they come back to the article.

      You can read about our ad units here, including info on the configuration and which units display AdSense ads under what circumstances.

      Basically, if you have the HP Ad Program turned on, your AdSense unit is the last one on the page, and the other units will only display AdSense ads if they are outperforming other bidders. If you are running AdSense only, all of your ads will be AdSense ads. Most authors earn more from the HubPages Ad Program than AdSense along, but you are welcome to test both and see which setting results in higher earnings.

          Huh? Why wouldn't I respond?

          Anyway, Sorry Christy, I was asking about LINK units specifically, ie: the bar of text links that when click open another page of ads. These:

          You can have those in addition to the ads described in the link you provided. When a LINK UNIT is placed near the begining of an article I find it outperforms all other units by far. Is there any way to have these added to options maybe?

            Just to be clear the hubpages ad page you linked to states

            "AdSense regulations only permit you to earn from 4 ads per page"

            Typical web owners can only place 3 and I understand Hubpages has permission to place 4 adsense ads. I understand the policy. It, however, makes no mention of LINK UNITS of which you can have at least 2 of in addition to those 4. I was looking for a way of adding these, is it possible? If it's not, perhaps you could add a "LINK UNIT" option to the modules section while we create a page?

              Jean, you  have no way of adding any ad blocks. HubPages controls all advertising except Amazon, so it's up to them.

              For future reference, when you have a suggestion for a new feature on HubPages, there's a special section of the forums for it.
