Watermarks – the best placement?

I’ve found a great watermark program called Watermark Factory and it not only allows you to create watermarks, but also fancy borders.  You can batch process your images so it doesn’t become tedious doing a large number of photos at a time.

But I do struggle with the placement of the watermark.  If you’ve been viewing my photos over the months you would have seen a white watermark and a clear one.  Placement would have been bottom right-hand corner, top-right hand corner, across the centre and now just below centre.  But it seems that it often obscures important features of the photo, such as the eyes of a dog or cat.  So I’m seeking your comments on what you feel is best? I want to be able to brand my own images for obvious reasons and they are low resolution on this site.  The photos I sell are high resolution and do not have watermarks on them.  Where do you feel is best for a watermark to be place?
