Loading second position adsense ad before first, how to?

My midpage adsense ad receives a higher ctr than my first (top) ad.

As per a suggestion from google, I would like to load my midpage ad first, so it uses the highest bid.

http://support.google.com/adsense/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=187769 

However, their example shows a way to set the ad into an absolute position on the page.

The way my page template works, the adsense ad is embedded in content. It appears after the fourth paragraph.

Is there a way I can put the ad code in a div and have it load prior to the others (as per their example) and then have a div that actually displays it in a way that it's not an absolute position, so I can do this:

paragraph-1
paragraph-2
paragraph-3
paragraph-4
<div> (show previously loaded ad here)</div>
paragraph-5
paragraph-6

Clear examples appreciated :) :)

it would be easier if you posted a link to the page so we can see how it is coded.  I am thinking that you could hold the add off by putting the code at the end of the page and putting the container in its normal place but empty, then just put the add into the innerHTML of the container.

The problem is it might make the load a little quirky and we will need to see the code to see if we can minimize the elements from jumping around during load.

Hi Cd&,

Thank you for taking a look, an example is here: http://shoutkey.com/figure 

though the goal is to load that second (positioned) ad first, as google adsense places the highest bidder in the first spot to load. So if I were to load the other two ads at the end that might work...

if in your code where you want an ad just put in an empty span with an id:
<span id="add1"></span>
One for each ad location.

The move the ad generation code to the end of the page into a set of hidden eleemnts using Display: none in the CSS.

Then you can move the add into the the span with
document.getElementById('ad1').innerHTML= document.getElementById('hiddenad1').inerHTML;
