I wonder how this will impact HP in the future.
In terms of what authors can do there is a strong argument for ONLY using the third layout option available when you start to write a hub. (See image below) This puts the image down the page and ensures Google has some text to feed on above the fold. The ad design and placement issues depend on HP.
Someone linked this article in the forums a few days back.
I'll say what I said then...
I've always been under the impression that above the fold is already used to determine quality and search results (as one of many factors). Was I incorrect?
There were suggestions ages ago that Hubpages changing of the front page when logged out (now mostly pics and a few words about successful writers above the fold, instead of links to different topics/sections) could have negatively impacted their SERPs.
I have to admit, I hope this means Google will penalize sites that use the annoying click through ads which crash lower powered computers such as netbooks. Please.

Studies have shown that ads above the fold are those most commonly clicked. Maybe HP should consider altering ads to be above the fold.Ad Placements (Best to Worst): Embedded in content, top of page, right side bar, left side bar, below the fold, footer.
