    The HubPages logo.

    I absolutely hate the new format with the top banner ad.  It has made hub pages less trust worthy and looks more like a "junk" site.  I have noticed considerably less traffic since the change.

      Yeah agreed, I definitely don't like it.  I don't even think I can make money from it.

    That's interesting I haven't seen it.  I also run ad blocking software, but I do see the ads like on the sidebar etc.  I would be disappointed also to see a huge banner ad on top of pages - it's not only tacky, it does cause people to distrust the content.

    It is an attempt to gin up ad revenue whose practical effect is to make your profile less accessible to the casual viewer.

    When editing hubs it increases the amount of up-and-down scrolling necessary to get the job done.

    Not seeing a banner ad over my profile as of yet. I run AdBlock, However, on HubPages I do not use it as I want to see all ads here.

    I have no clue as to what you're talking about.  i don't see any banners over my profile or anyplace else...and as far as I know, I don't run any ad blocking software.

    Actually,  I don't see the banner ad on my home computer.  I was only seeing it on my work computer.

    I don't understand it.

    May be some of us getting to see it and some of us not is because of the browser. i use Mozilla Firefox and there's no ad shown up in here my profile.
    Or they might be starting to come into all of ours profile space.

    That wouldn't do good and surely get the reputation a low. The user wouldn't be highlighted for the reader but anyway with our feedback I guess things may be like usual for all.

    Best wishes!

      Yeah I'm not sure. I use firefox for both of my computers, work and home.  My home computer isn't showing the ads, my work one is.  I don't know what it is about.
