    Well an advert would be the obvious choice, however if that's not what you want I would suggest maybe just deleting that space completely? That way you could have a longer 'featured videos' list. Or, better still, have another list of 'most watched' videos or 'newest videos'. :)

    Jay i was thinking ads also like slot of four small ad slots.... i seen it somewhere on one of the forum advertised on forum promotion. And i will offer free advertising to begin with that might attract people.

    Yes, four small ad slots would fit in nicely. Free advertising though? I'm not entirely sure what you mean by that but I wouldn't give away all your ad space for free. Try some ad networks that pay per click. Even if your site is small you will still make a little profit that way.

    Best of luck, site is looking good!

    I would suggest you place some ads over there if that is possible and if not then you can probably get the Features Videos section on top and put something else in its place like Related Videos or something and if not the ads.

    If you want the website to be highly ranked in the SE's, you have to consider that Google doesn't like ads "above the fold", so you will want to avoid putting ads in that particular space. I do like Jay's suggestion of putting in a "newest videos" or "most watched videos" section.

    does a signup box not serve up well for your website here? there are iimages above the fold for sites that do well..they just cannot be too big or not optimised enough....

    Thanks for the advice I'm so far in favor of the two, ads and the feeds one suggested by altcom.

    It may not be a problem, as long as there are not too many, but it would be better to think about what your visitors want to see, not how it would benefit you. After all, that's what Google is looking for when considering the ranking of your site. If you want to put Adsense ads on your site, move the videos up, and do something similar to what Fergal did here - and put the ads on the bottom.

    Thanks for the nice advice I have thought of the popular videos there as I also felt that would get people to be on site longer, I myself dont like ads showing on middle of page on sites so I'm sure the others will feel the same,
