    For the first time ever, I have noticed a large strip of adsense ads running down to the right of a hub... underneath the tags.

    Is this a good thing? I felt that there were enough already?

    Ok so now they are not showing, that was strange... something to do with Yieldbuild I guess. In that case, feel free to ignore this thread!

      I just saw the strip on one of your hubs! I have never seen it on mine before, and dont want them there to be honest, I dont think that extra adsense ads is going to increase revenue... if anything it could decrease revenue, there was enough already. How long have you been getting them?

    I think I started seeing them this month. First it was just the Yield Build, now the strip on the .org.

    i saw a huge one yesterday on tons of peoples hubs, including my own that was never even slightly related to the topic

    i took a screenshot and meant to make a similar forum post

      well, im joining the service! so, i think it was a good ad for hubpages authors to see … /index.php

      I saw some posts by hubstaff a week or so back about testing msn ads and maybe other publisher networks on Hubpages share of impressions, I assumed these ads were related, I never figured out whether it was an adsense ad or another distracted and forgot about it until this post

      its def an ugly ad that makes some of my hopefully more somber hubs on insurance seem spammy

    Maybe they're just trying to fill up the white spaces on the side of the hub? It makes sense from a business point of view but it will definitely clutter up the hub.

    I'll be interested to see how this test works out for HubPages.  Hopefully if it pans out well, then we will share the additional impressions.  I wouldn't mind giving up the white space.

    I'm flattered if readers like my writing, but it pays better if they click an ad.  There are plenty of popular magazine style blogs out there that have every square inch of white space monetized.

    As long as the pop-ups or the movable ads are never used...that's where I would object.

    ryan, that was your 2000th post! is this a similar ad to what you saw?

      Lol, so it was. Actually that wasnt the ad I saw, it was one of those vertical strips with about 5 or 6 text ads.... just like the ones that you can put down the side of a blogger blog.

      I havent seen any increase in revenue since I noticed these... in fact the opposite, I may start switching all my hubs to 'Medium' advertisting; particularly when hubpages feels it ok not to announce this change. Its still my content, unless the changes to TOS change that too?

    A long time ago - many months ago - there was a topic that adsense had given hubpages permission to have an extra adsense ad - more than 3 on one page. It was then that I noticed a leaderboard across the top of my hubs.

  12. sunforged profile image71
    sunforgedposted 14 years ago

    Whne you saw that post, i think hubpages already had that permission (premium publisher)

    When the leaderboard displays, than the large square  in the right sidebar does not.

    In this case a new ad placement has recently appeared at the lowest point in the right sidebar

    Hubs has mentioned that they are testing other networks and adsense itself has recently announced they opened up their network to other select ad publishers not just adwords - im not sure how we would ever tell the difference, we will still get credit for the clicks as always

    lots of changes, kind of wish hubs was more transparent about some of this stuff

      Me too, I am considering switching to 'medium' advertising as a response to this. Like I just said, its still my content; I hope?

    as long as they are bigger ads filling that space. I hate doing a search and going to a page and seeing nothing but ads and you have to search to find the info you searched for. it's very annoying. I end up leaving the page quickly.

    I wonder if these bigger ads are impression ones, I still don't get the huge traffic that makes for daily clicks sad but I can make a penny or two if I do get good traffic and no clicks. I assume these are for the impression ads, something like we get a fraction of a penny from each impression to that ad we make.

      Im not sure, I doubt that we get anything at all from the ones that sunforged spotted; they are not even Adsense ads, and I sure dont have an affiliate code for them! Why doesnt hubpages communicate these things? They have a 'communicator of awesomeness'.... and a so called community person.... yet the important things fail to be communicated.

        I honestly do not know, I do know that I will keep an eye on the forums here and if you folks who have changed your hubs to medium ad levels do better for it I will give it a try on a few of mine too. Thats the one thing about you guys, you keep me up to date on most stuff to do with my hubs if I just check out the forums from time to time so thanks!
