"Don't ever have friends or family members click on your ads and don't ever click on your own ads or those of people you know. This will quickly get you banned from Google's AdSense and it's very difficult to be reinstated."
It's very easy to inadvertently tap on an ad on a mobile device when scrolling, especially if the ad stretches down the area of the screen and a scroll attempt ends up as a tap. Is there any way in code, when logged in, tapping on our own ads could be disabled?
If you click on an ad occasionally, no one is going to penalise you. You will be penalised ONLY if Adsense notices you're doing it systematically, or if you appear to be colluding with other people to click each other's ads.
Google adsense is pushing hubbers to click on their own ads... Adsense cannot make such rules....Why should they get the bigger bite and not share it down equally....I propose a total review of the ad policies
We don't really need documentation...and for the racord its not just adsense...ad firms in general earn tones of money everyday for the hard work publishers do everyday...all am saying is that they review their payment methods to be more reasonable....ptc is not anywhere close to a solution...And for the record...am not encouraging hubbers to become lazy for earning more from their work...its simply what all publishers deserve after a lot of work...
When you make statements like "Google adsense is pushing hubbers to click on their own ads" you do need some sort of documentation. If I said "The hubber jobsmart supports payments from google of half what is currently paid" I would need some sort of documentation. If I could not provide it, the statement would not be based in fact.
Facts dont need proof.... Proof that all publishers experience....you really dont need any more evidence if you experience the same .... the reality that you dont get an equal pay for your hard work....I strongly believe that google is against slavery....not that am saying we are slaves....but they make billions of dollars from our hard work....dont we deserve atleast a fair if not equal pay?
I'm not sure what you mean by being taken advantage of. Advertisers will only pay so much when there's millions if not billions of articles published.
I'm glad the Hub pages Ad program exists otherwise very few would be making much on here. Even with the program, the majority of writers don't make monthly payout because the competition is so intense nowadays.
You don't like the fact that writers earn peanuts from advertising - go get another job.
I used to write on HubPages a lot - when the earnings rates were higher. I only write here for fun now, and the earnings are a bonus. If you want to earn a good income from your writing, do your research and go where you can earn a better income.
It is not my intention...if I was ever Miscouted....that I would want to earn illegally from google adsense or any other ad program out there....all am saying is that ad programs should start to consider paying publishers seriously and make publishing a serious job....they earn billions and pay us peanuts.....
I was on straight AdSense and nothin' but AdSense for the first two years I was here ... and I was still getting nowhere. If HP hadn't started up their own Ad Program I would've given up on this site ages ago!
Me, too. At least I would have given up on the money-- might have stayed just for the interaction. I'm surprised at how much I am earning-- especially in comparison to the effort (or lack of) I have put in lately.
Am I correct in thinking that I can't run the HP ad programme until I have Adsense though? Rochelle your words spur this newbie on, especially as Im working hardvon my hubs at the moment. I don't yet know if I am good enough but enjoy focusing on my writing. I suppose only time will tell.
Write lots of well written, popular articles. You'll need to write 10 featured hubs and then apply for an Adsense account so that you can join the HubPages earnings program. The more you write and the more external visitors your hubs attract, the more you can earn.
If you know that, why are you moaning about Adsense?
If you've go the Earnings Program switched on, you will earn little or nothing from Adsense. That's not because their rates of pay are low - it's because with the Earnings program, each Hub will show only ONE Adsense ad, and it's right at the bottom of the Hub where practically no one will ever see it.
I've never generated a cent from these two programs and they've also never really worked properly. Constantly my adsense claims its active then I'm not approved, then it just mucks up everything. I'm not making any...
I was refraining about talking about this but it really is bad. Last month with adsense was my most profitable month, but this month so far I got 3 clicks...What could have made this change?-New Hubpages Layout?-April...
Well, no doubt google adsense is one of the best in terms of earning revenue from hubpages. However, i have only been earning cents at adsense!! That's so bad. I desperately need help from fellow hubbers, what should i...
Something just occured to me, not only are we writers here but we are ALSO CONSUMERS. I see nothing wrong with clicking on a fellow hubbers google ad if it's something we are interested in. I am getting the feeling that...
