This is primarily for the admins but anyone else feel free to jump in anytime. I know that many of the authors here write out of the goodness of the heart and are very happy with the adsense income they receive. I am not complaining about this in the least and have been happy. With that said however, I have published a significant amount of hubs that have good quality content and a ton of traffic to them. I do use affiliate links to an ebook product from clickbank. I know not everyone agrees with doing things this way and I understand. I am also well aware that my hubscore is lowered because I link to the same affiliate program on many different hubs. I am not worried about that in the least and my understanding is I am still well within the guidlines and TOS of being able to publish here.
So here is my question. I would like to do some testing withthe ad placement on my hub pages to see if I can get a little better conversion rate. MY conversion rate right now is very low and I would like to be able to tweak it. Yet I want to make sure I am well within the TOS and not in danger of having my hubpages delete.
So here is how my sites all used to look
I would like to change the ad unit a little bit to look like this
I think it will convert better but not sure and just want to do some testing to see. Again I don;t want to risk having my hubs deleted though. So before I go and do the change with all of the hubs am I ok to do this and still within the TOS. The way I am interpretting and reading things I can't see anything wrong with it.
You can certainly adjust the layout of your capsules in order to change the positions of the ads. In fact, Shailini wrote a hub with some suggestions on this topic not too long ago.
