I have being doing hubs for over one year now and I developed a layout for my hubs which I feel confortable about, altough I'm not quite sure it's the best to maximize my adsense profits.
I tend to write a lot of text - splitting it in several text capsules, I use several images (but I always leave the first text capsule without a foto, so it can have ads) and sometimes I put videos as well.
Here's one of my last hubs, with a good example of my usual hub structure:
http://hubpages.com/hub/Manga-Software- … Draw-Manga
Feel free to check any of my other hubs as well, my structure changes a bit depending on the subject.
If you think there are ways for me to improve, please leave a constructive comment here!
I really like the layout. I like the way you have the visuals right next to the content. I have no idea how to do that yet. btw I'm your newest fan
Thanks for being my fan! It's easy to put visuals next to content. Lets say for a picture. After you upload the image you want in the photo capsule, you just put that capsule on top of the text and you'll notice a arrow poniting right on the uper right corner of the photo capsule.
Click it and voilá, you have the desired efect!
I am sorry, I dont know alot about adsense, but just as a regular person, I think the layout makes sense. Its easy to read, but it has other stuff to break up the text...so its not boring either. I think it looks good!!!
I can only give you a personal opinion and I'm no kind of expert.
When I read the text, it was engaging and interesting and obviously well researched but I felt I had to battle a fair amount of chaos to get through it.
I found the first paragraph off-putting because it has such a mix of texts- italics, underlining, bold and links text in a very short space. I like to be worked into a piece gently rather than facing a clamor for attention.
I know some people say use bold and underlines for the sake of the search engines but I think any page looks worse with it.
I would try and simplify more. I wouldn't use the Amazon capsules at all unless you are one of the lucky people who actually sells stuff through Amazon.
I reckon the Adsense placing was perfect.
I think the layout is great. you manage to fit in a lot of stuff without making it seem cluttered.
Very well done.
Thanks for all the feedback on the layout.
Will - Yes, I use the bold, underline and italics mainly for search engine optimization purpose. Altough I'm not quite sure if actualy works better, LoL.
Amazon capsules seemed appropriate in this hub, since I'm actually reviewing products and (hoppefuly ^_^') I'll have google targeted peole that are actually wanting to buy a drawing program looking at my hub.
I have sold somethings in Amazon before - but it's always low cost so I don't even have enough for a payout.
Anyway I will try to see where I can simplify it a bit more!
Thanks once more!!!
Best of luck anime_nanet. You are a genuinely good writer and deserve success.
I think the layout is good. I would have written the reviews in the opposite order,starting with the software for beginners and ending with the advanced,since I suspect most of the people googling would be beginners.
I think that the layout is excellent. But, I would avoid underlining and bolding any text which is not intended to be a title. I think that this cheapens text in a way, almost like you are trying to sell something to somebody - never good to give that impression. Other than that, fantastic.
just a thought, but what about people that stumble across your hub and don't know what Manga is? I didn't. even though it's a follow-up hub, maybe a lead-in sentence defining Manga for those not in-the-know.
Marisa: thanks for the feedback! Hm, I never actually thought of that idea - pleasing to the masses! The main reason I started with the best program is because I'm doing a comparisition between it and a less featured progaram of the same company. So it was easier just stating all the qualities of the best one and then mentioning the differences between it's lesser counterpart.
Still I will keep in mind your idea to later hubs!
Riankett: Thanks for the comment. Bolding and Underlining are part of my stile, besides SEO. Anyway, Ihave took some of the underlines from the hub and I have to try to run some tests to see if removing all Bolds and Underlines will actually have some sort of negative impact SEO wise.
Apple: I'm pretty sure all the people that stumble will know what manga is - at least comming from search engines (because if not, I really did a crappy job SEO wise ^_^') If you are refering to Hubbers, well I have several hubs where I mention what manga is... particulary one of my latest, called Anime Dictionary!
Putting that extra info on the hub, to my reason, would only clutter up the hub, provide unecessary information for my google readers and divert attention from the real issue that I adress, which are the programs.
Those are my thoughts on this, anyway thanks for the input!

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...

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...

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,...

My most recently snipped hub is about a specific product that is not readily available in stores. It used to have an amazon capsule, but that was deleted courtesy of HubPro a while back. Made no sense to me at the time...

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...
