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.
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.
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.
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:

Hey folks, I'm paranoid, so I thought I would ask this. I got more clicks on my ads yesterday than I have combined so far, and I was wondering if I could see where the clicks originated from (IP or at lease geographical area). I noticed my income doubled (from about 50 cents to a whole...

I've been a member of Hubpages for 2 months, but I've really only been actively making Hubs for about 4 weeks, and I got my first clicks yesterday. It was a total of 3 clicks, and I got $2.06 for the whole package. Apparently I'm targeting the right keywords...I've recently also seen a...
