I'm curious which ad program works best for you? Has anyone figured out why either AdSense or HP ads does better for you? Is it content related possibly?
Every time I turn off HP's ads and allow just AdSense to run it seems like I make only a small percentage of what I make with both HP and AdSense togather. I understand that HP's ads cannibalizes AdSense and I clearly see that with HP's ads turned on.
I read somewhere in the forums that HP's ad system pay both for views and clicks. Since I have a few high traffic hubs that probably explains why I do better with HP's system.
Definately HP Ads - it used to be adsense until HP changed the page and ad layouts - once they did that my adsense from here tanked - totally. I do very well with adsense on my own sites because I control the ad layout - HP has done the same here (not faulting them) - changed the ad layout to one most productive for them.
That doesn't mean they shafted us - they gave us HP ads instead.
I never thought about it until now but yes that totally makes sense. HP has changed the ad layout to one that is best for their own ad program which makes them the most money, *us* as well if we pick it.
So HP's ads cannibalizes AdSense as those premium spots are worth the most and get the most clicks. Which only leaves the crumbs for AdSense.

I need advice. I have both the HP Ad Program and my own Google Adsense ads on my one Hub. I haven't earned a thing from the HP Ad Program, but I'm earning on Adsense daily. I'm wondering if I should get rid of the HP Ad...

I think it is related to images being used for the HUB ads and Google ads. When I turned off the Hub ads my adsense revenue rose significantly. I think it is because the block of adsense ads to the right of the column...

I noticed that CPMs are really low so I decided to just start a test where I would just be running AdSense ads only and it's only day one, only one data point, but so far I'm already out-earning my HubAds...
