Where do you place your amazon capsules on your hubs, at the beginning, middle, or at the end?
I'm trying to figure out the best way to use Amazon capsules. If you have a hub that only has one or two capsules, where do you usually place them?
Very similar to how you place photos - I place mine where they're most relevant - if i have a list of references at the end, i place my amazon capsule as a sidebar. if it fits with topics earlier, that's where it goes.
It depends. If I have written an informational type hub where the focus is adsense earnings, I will sometimes put an amazon capsule at the end with one or two highly related products.
When I write a product based hub I usually put in many amazon capsules and nearly always put one floating right on the first text box. Have a look at hubs from thisisoli, Nelle Hoxie, Mark Knowles (and me if you like) to get an idea of some different kinds of layout.
I have looked at a lot of different hubs, (I actually spend a fair amount of my time on hubpages reading other peoples hubs) and have seen a wide range of different placements. When just looking at hubs, there's no way to tell if amazon placement is strategic, or just thrown in willy-nilly as I am doing.
I asked the question because I'm curious about different people's (effective) strategies behind their ad placement. I'm more interested in hubs that specifically target a certain placement, rather than just any old hub with amazon capsules.
I also thought others might be interested in hearing peoples opinions on the matter.
I try to parallel mine to the relevant text block.

So, this is the third time HP has snipped Amazon from my hubs. Every time one of my Hubs is edited by HubPages to add to a network site they snip any Amazon capsules on the Hub. The Amazon capsule is always extremely relevant to the topic discussed and is not spammy, yet HubPages doesn't seem to...

I understand the rationale for removing amazon capsules. I'm very careful not to include amazon capsules unless they are 100% relevant, and I can provide a personal opinion. I rarely do more than one per hub.HP is not only snipping amazon capsules on hubs for niche sites, but also just to have a...

I was totally dismayed to learn that Ad-Blocking software is used by 41% of people. (The statistic appeared in "The Week" magazine.) That reduces impressions. We get 60% of views, but only 59% of those views yield ad impressions so only 35% of our views gives us earnings. If you get 1000...

The nice thing about the new Amazon capsule is that it displays the description text in the same size as the rest of the hub. This can be beneficial and may turn into better sales. So I reorganized one of my hubs, moving much of my text from text capsules into the Amazon description fields. This...

Janderson just submitted some great suggestions on this thread:http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/126313#post2666393and I think this one deserves a suggestion post on its own.We're always being told to be discriminating with our Amazon capsules - less is more, they must be directly related, etc...
