So, I'd like a little bit of help. My busiest hub is also the one with the lowest AdSense CTR. It's a bit frustrating since about 30% of my daily traffic comes from this hub (it usually gets about 80 views a day.) The problem is that the CTR is like <CTR snipped, do not post your CTR>. I have another one that's quite low, but it's not getting the same traffic so it doesn't bother me as much.
http://hubpages.com/hub/How-to-get-big-traps is the hub.
I'd like to bump it up to about ##%, even ##% if that's possible. Does anyone have any tips as far as picture and capsule placement goes?
I appreciate it, thanks.
Oh, also. Another thing I noticed is that only some of my hubs are showing up on the AdSense channel data. Ads, however, are showing on all of them. Does anyone know what the deal with that is?
First of all, you better remove your CTR from your comments - it's against google ToS to reveal that.
As long as you have your advert placed first thing top right (simply have a text box with 120-135 words at the top of the hub for this to appear), there isn't much else you can do without getting technical and changing keywords and adsense setup.
Some topics are just naturally low CTR - some traffic has more 'banner blindness' than others.
Thanks for the heads up and to whoever edited it out. Wasn't aware that you couldn't post it, although I guess that makes sense.
And yeah, I figured that it could just be the topic. I was just wondering if there are any techniques to help increase it further.
Well by the looks of it you haven't done the one thing I mentioned that could easily increase it - get the Adsense block first thing top right. That means moving down any pictures beside the second text capsule. That's the highest click through spot on the page.
Yeah, sorry. I was a little flustered by the CTR thing and didn't read your post as thoroughly as I could. I moved the ad, so hopefully that works. Thank you.
Good luck. I've found that worked wonders for my CTR once I started doing it. And I'd recommend doing that on EVERY hub even those aimed at Amazon sales.
Hm... does that stop you getting as high an Amazon click through rate, though?

Well, it seems to me that my traffic is never going to increase.I am lucky to get one hit a week now, and the only traffic I am getting is from google.I know that being away for a while doesn't help much, but none of my...

Someone just recommend this site. Has anyone tried it or know anything about it?

Many people writing different things. But I and I'm sure that many other people would like to know the potential of hubpages. Thanks for answers.

I'm curious if anyone actually makes money on their hubs. How long did it take for you to make some? Is it a good side income?

I'm just coming back after a several year hiatus, and one of the most exciting things that started when I was here was the HubChallenge. Originally, it was 30 hubs in 30 days. Now I see it's changed to either updating...

I have tried a few but they are either too difficult to understand how to get started, or just plain not as good as Hubpages.
