How about letting us add HP ads to our websites and blogs?

    I mean seriously, wouldn't all it take is a JavaScript snippet?

    I'd be delighted to throw out my three AdSense ads and replace them with HP ads.

    And I'd be happy to continue my adherence to all things AdSense TOS.

      I'm waiting to hear what Hubpages says about this. It would be a winner.

    Do you mean by copying the ad code inclusive of our HP affiliate ID and pasting it into our own websites?

    Might work for HubPages if the 60/40% was included in the code too.
    Does Google allow websites to carry copied ads from other websites?
    hhhmmm... I wonder..

      Exactly. My guess is HP could cannibalize http://hubpages.com/help/ads as their starting point.


      Blogger, bless their hearts, pretty much allows one to throw any affiliate JavaScript code on the page we wish.

      Imho, this could really be something. Speaking for myself, I know I'd make 10 times more from an impression-based system than a click-through one.

    The more you say about this idea, the more I like it. I'd definitely do better with impressions than clicks.

    I was thinking more like a direct HP ad on my blog with a tracking code or HP could pay me a fixed rate monthly for placing a banner, other than that....I don't know hmm

      Yes, the script would enable them to do just that. Essentially, they'd manage the ads as they do on hubs (excepting for position).

    HubPages is using other ad services to create the in-house program.  Those services would have to carry ads that HubPages paid to place and then we'd all have to sign up with those companies from our other blogs and sites.

    And then we'd only be able to do it if our other sites allowed the other ad companies.

      AdSense uses other ad services, and there are none of those problems there...

      And guess what? HP is already doing this. There's only one teeny, tiny, little problem... https://yieldbuild.com/lead/apply?utm_content=none It's that pesky, little paragraph on the right...

      HP could add the snippet route if it wanted to. The only real concern is if they can make the back-end efficient enough to make the concept economically feasible for lower-traffic sites.

      And my cat is bigger than your cat.

        You need to get 100,000 visitors a month to use it. Now that is a goal, but I don't  know if I can ever reach it.

            Thanks paradigmsearch. I don't know. I'm not even halfway there.

              That's a truly awesome website you got there... I'd poke YB with a stick about it; and mention your Hubberism when you do.

                I very rarely get clicks on my blog, so maybe HP ads would help. I think most of my traffic on the blog is from HP people anyway. But it's hard to get a big audience on your own blog, I could never get one that big.
