I have seen where having an adsense in the top left of a website gets alot of clicks. That pretty square blog at the right towards the middle of the hubpage should be moved to the top left. There would be more clicks.
Or could you test it on some hubs. Try mine first, lol.
Deff a good point but try mine first, he's taking his dog for a walk
You mean, you want people to leave your hub from the top left corner, before reading a word of what you have to say, all for the sake of 2 cents? What about your message?
Well, that's the question, isn't it? Do we write in order to sell? Or do we sell in order to write?
I second the motion, a big square ad below the headline/title, with text to the right of it alongside, then continuing full width below the ad and that initial bunch of text is supposedly a very profitable location.
Worth implementing, I think.
how can we do that?
We can't. Hubpages has to do it. And badcompany wants this change too. Woo Hoo.
If you look at a chart of where ads are the most effective, the right middle is NOT the best. The left top is the best.
Like I said, me and badcompany can be the guinnea pigs.
Top left is the best, the right has always been proven to be bad for adsense so I think you have made a great point.
I agree, top left is considered one of the best ad placements and .02 can add up with a lot of traffic
Actually knowing how much effort HP team places into optimizing the site, I would think they did consider this option, and if they don't use it, there is a good reason for that.
Very true, Misha hope you been well.
Like the idea, and I've heard the same thing. But, like Misha said, I'm sure HP has considered this and isn't using it for a reason.
Since I've been here, I've seen HP try out a few different layouts. So, maybe they'll try it someday. Obviously, it's in their best interest to create the best ad layouts! When they made some changes about 10 days ago, my earnings went down and I was really skeptical. It must've been a fluke because since then my earnings have been higher than ever due to their tweak. It really helped improve my CTR and I think that in turn delivered higher-paying ads to my hubs.
I've always thought that sites like ezinearticles have really poorly placed ads, not for earning purposes but for aesthetic reasons.
One thing that I love about HPs placement of ads is that it looks pretty good to the reader and doesn't look really desperate like Ezinearticles does.
You have to decide if you want aesthetics or clicks. With AdSense (or any advertising), profitable placement may not be the "prettiest". It's not a question of "desperation". You have to decide if you are in it for "ego-boo" or for clicks. If for ego-boo, you can always opt out of the AdSense, I think, and then spend hours on the layout of each Hub, to make them "just right", and then maybe just stick an Amazon capsule at the bottom.
Hubpages here is an interesting article FYI:

Is there a way to tell which hubs are getting Adsense clicks and which are not?If I have five hubs and a few clicks, is there any way to see which of my hubs are actually bringing in the clicks?

Hi, I joined HubPages about 2 weeks ago and I'm constantly finding ways to improve my hubs. I start most of my hubs with images, causing the advertisements to appear towards the middle or end of my hubs. I read that it is better to have advertisements appear at the top of hubs. Should I redo my...

I have noticed that upon removing Kontera from my hubs that my AdSense earnings went up. Kontera seemed pretty useless even when I was earning with it because the click were not really all that profitable. One AdSense click seems to be worth more than a Kontera click even when it's like one of the...
