If we are blue side, I ward the near entrance to the opposing jungle. In conjunction with bot's ward on dragon, we get full vision and deny the enemy jungle a chance to gank mid, bottom, and counter jungle.
On red side I ward bottom side as well. This allows bottom lane to only have to worry about warding the tri brush as there is no (easy) way the jungle can get to dragon without being spotted, plus this ward can be deep into their jungle, providing an opportunity to kill a weak jungler.
Also, I find these wards allow me to properly warn my bot lane if a gank is incoming, as well as ensure I can safely gank bot and know if I'm being followed or ambushed.
Very descriptive and helpful, thanks!
And thanks to everyone else as well!

I don't ward, I let myself get ganked and die then proceed to blame our jingler for not counter jangling hard enough, obviously. None of these other answers seem to be putting enough blame on their team's jongler.
