Thermostat probe position?

Iím after everyoneís thoughts on the best/correct location for a thermostat probe.

When using a heatmat I have my probe taped directly to the mat, underneath the substrate.

When using a ceramic heat lamp, where should my probe be? Iíve been putting it directly under the heater, taped to the bottom of the tank, however when the snakes are basking, they lay directly over the probe which blocks it from the heater. Iíve tried putting one of my tanks probes on the side of the tank, in line with the heat lamp, and turned the temp down a little bit as itís not directly in the basking spot. Iím still monitoring temps and they seem fine, Iím just wondering if thereís a better position for the probes!

Any help would be appreciated guys!
