    How Important is Hub Capsule Structure in Raising or Lowering Google Adsense Clicks

    Do you find that adding pictures or too much capsules both left and right of the page, takes away prime space which could hold your Google Ad?

    It is true for mostly the upper right hand corner ad placement. Any capsules in that spot next to your first body paragraph of text will most likely push the ad down to another location.

    Yes, but the opposite is also true:

    Google Panda algorithm does not like sites who send real content below the fold, so putting 2 or more ADs where the text is supposed to be will harm your SEO score and you will get less organic hits.

    I hate to tell you, probably less than 5% of readers will click an ad. The net is inundated with ineffective advertising. People are jaded. Unless you are a mega-traffic mogul, forget it. You might make enough for a gallon of gas.

    It really depends on which ad scheme you are running on HubPages.

    If you are on the HP Adprogram then the only Google Adsense ad you get directly paid for clicks is the one at the bottom of the page on the right. You can try and optimize this by how you display your comments etc, but it's really not going to improve much. Many people will never click on it as it's so far down the page. If you somehow manage to get a click through rate of higher than 0.05% please let me know how you managed it!

    If you are solely being paid through Adsense on HP then you're best bet would be to optimize the position of the in-content ad. Traditionally, the higher up an ad is on the page the more likely it is to be clicked. However, now you have to balance this with the Google update that penalized sites that were too heavy with ads above the fold. You can experiment and see the best place on the page.

    That being said, I would focus more on how many articles you write, what you write about and getting ranked in the search engines. If you concentrate on these 3 aspects the clicks will take care of themselves.

    Best of luck!
