    I have been using the same formula for over a year - text, photo top right, amazon, eBay, news, comments. Then I read somewhere in the forum about letting the first Google ad box float up to the top right because that has the best payout?

    What are your favorite/most profitable ways to set up a Hub?
    Do you think it makes a difference?

      I think presentation makes a big difference and like all things in life, nothing is perfect and everything can be improved. just like my Birthday hubs which have evolved, hopefully to much better hub styles!!

      I used to make them like this Here then they evolved to this and now i have just started using this arrangement

      For you, I  would test some hubs, by changing the arrangment, as you mentioned and see what the difference is in your stats if your talking about wanting and potential better payout!! ,,My birthday hubs are purely designed for ashetic purposes which for me is important!

    Lela - congratulations on your current perfect 100!

    I have experimented with having two text boxes before the first photo.  This tends to give a banner ad at the top followed by a large rectangle ad to the right of the first capsule.  The third ad then appears after the first capsule. 

    The first picture still appears as the icon for the hub in any listings of hubs.  I think this probably pays better though it is difficult to prove this.  The theory goes that casual viewers are more likely to click if all the ads are 'up front'.  In other words get them to click before they loose interest and go somewhere else.  The downside is it doesn't LOOK as nice!

    It depends on what the topic is and how much I can spit out for the intro text box. If I can only think of a little, I make it long enough to have the google ad to the right of the first text capsule at the top. Otherwise, if I have a lot to say in the first text capsule, I like to put a picture to the right of the first text capsule, and in this case if there really is enough to say, a google ad will appear below the picture on most occasions.

    I try to have the ad in either the first or second text capsule, with the banner at the top and the banner after the first capsule.

    Sometimes you can get the google ad in the second text capsule, if there is a picture in the first and the second capsule is empty.

    I haven't really played with placement much. I just try to make sure that the second banner ad is not at the bottom underneath the comments.

    I like to break my text up - it gives more breaks for the reader's eyes if done logically.  It's not always the same for me, but one of my "quick hubs" will be:  text, photo at full width, text, links/news side by side, text (times however many further subtopics I'm covering), amazon/amazon side by side, comments.

    I remember learning in my high school journalism class (that was 43 years ago folks) that the readers' eyes goes to the upper right hand corner first, so that is the ideal spot for our ads I presume.

    Of course if you are a photographer and want to show off your work, it might be better from that point of view to have your photo in that spot.
