PAGE LAYOUT

I suggest a change in layout to the travel guide main pages (Home page, Attractions, Restaurants, Shopping, Nightlife, Walks & Tours, People & Culture). It's a disconnect to place the ad links between the top of the page and where viewers want to go (the content). Could the ad links be moved to the bottom, or the right sidebar?

Hi,

Thanks for that. This ad is placed between the general section article ("add description") and the individual listings.

We are constantly experimenting with ad positions and design, to find the best balance between earnings and not cluttering the page. It is in the nature of ads that they have to be somewhere where people look at - and definitely a fine line.

In this case, I believe it will already be much less cluttered/look much better when you add a general section article?

Any other opinions on that?

Best,
Daniel
P.S. Just to make clear - these ads do NOT appear in the app and eBook.

This page is an example: http://www.guidegecko.com/los-angeles/restaurants/p,174083,60

Underneath the "Add Description" button are four links that would take the viewer off the page and website. Below the links is the bar titled "All Restaurants in Los Angeles" and "Display all 68 Restaurants, apply filters" with a map just under it.

The positioning of the links breaks the flow of getting the viewer from the header "Los Angeles Restaurants & Eating" to the listings ("Display all 68 Restaurants"). On my screen I have to scroll to get to the listings. Unless, when someone downloads the guide, they only see the listings (?)

Hi,

I am not sure what exactly you mean by "ad links". Can you provide an example, and also paste the specific URL?

Thanks,
Daniel
