I dont think it really matters as long as the water is flowing threw it. Where you had it at first is probably where 98% of people keep them

If just placing in a media bag in a sump, then a baffle tends to be the best spot as it will force more water to flow through the bag rather than around it.

I have mine in a baffle and it works amazing because ALL the water is forced through it.
