    I know a few hubbers have been chosen as "test subjects" but has anyone else received invites in the last few days? I can't wait to try this out!

      How the heck do you input the required info relating to income tax? I followed the link and all I got when I clicked on 'tax information' was 'you're not authorised to view this page'. That told me good and proper lol

      I am glad that I read this hub. Because thus far I was under the impression that tax was the responsibility of the individual hubber. It looks like those rules are changing and that everyone who writes on hubpages no matter where in the world they are will have to submit their tax information.
      I have not received any request yet but will keep a look out in my email box in case I do. Thank your for posting this forum and keeping the hub pages community informed.

        Tax is your own responsibility for other affiliate programs such as Google AdSense if you are not living in the US. For HubPages you do need to submit tax information regardless of where you live in the world.

    Quoted from Paul's post "If you are among those in the first wave of invites, congratulations! "

    Does that not suggest that the invites have gone out already?

    1. 0
      ryankettposted 5 years ago in reply to this

      Double entrede, that could mean two things.

      For example, it could mean that they have selected the first 500 already, and invites are ready to be sent. If you are in the list, then congratulations. I can't see why they would ask for invited members to keep it a secret this time, and thus I doubt that invites have been sent.

      I would assume that they just saved the top hubber list, and will be working down that, for no reason other than convenience. If so, I guess that I am unlucky that my score has slipped from 98 to 94 in the past couple of days lol

      Aficionadaposted 5 years ago in reply to this

      Maybe it's primarily a difference between British and American writing, but it never even occurred to me that this implied that the invitations had already been sent out.  But now that it's been pointed out, I can see that as a possibility.

      In either case, the statement could have had a few words added here or there to make it crystal clear.  However, since we have seen March 3 as the date when the program is to be rolled out, we could probably be sure that either they will be sent out or received on March 3.

      ryankettposted 5 years ago in reply to this

      Also quoted: "we are rolling out the program in waves, starting with about 500 invites."

      That was 5 hours ago, that sounds like they are "starting" with invites, rather than "started" if you catch my drift. Ultimately though IzzyM, don't get beat up if you don't get the first invites, it won't be a personal thing.

      The invited people have to have PayPal accounts at the ready too, chances are that many will have to set one up.

      ryankettposted 5 years ago in reply to this

      What will be will be Izzy. The first roll out of 500 hubbers represents 0.25% of the published Hubbers, so I won't be taking it personally if I sit in the other 99.75%. I suspect that the easiest thing for them to do would be to get Americans signed up first, and then worry about tax stuff for non-US residents. Ultimately, they will probably be inviting people every week or something, so if you miss the cut this time there is always next time smile

    I got this because I was one of the beta testers and sworn to secrecy. As of today the gag order has been lifted (not that I can speak to most of the concerns voiced here).

    I cannot speak to Admin's invitation strategy except to know that they intend to roll this advertising program out to everyone.
    If you are not in the first wave of 500 PLEASE do not think you are unloved or unappreciated. Your time will come -- soon!!

    CPMs have been good on the HP program!
    But... Google Adsense did drop (even before the algorithm change). That was expected.
    I cannot speak to whether that will still be the case with the widespread rollout, but likely YES, because the whole point of this new ad program is that HP wants to reap more revenue for all of us ... if you get my drift.

          ryankettposted 5 years ago in reply to this

          Yeah, but they wouldn't have affected my CPC for AdSense.

          My major worry is losing too much from AdSense to be honest, at least losing more than I gain.

          But beggars can't be choosers, I will certainly give it a whirl. I take it that we can sign up and then opt out at a later date though? Because I would like to retain that option, otherwise I would sooner wait until the first 500 have tried and tested it religiously.

          Ultimately though, I will be delighted if this a) works, and b) lasts, because it will cover some of our losses and convince me to start publishing again.

    Most of the time when companies try to outdo adsense and google it is a big disapointment.  Revenue never is as good.  Makes the hubs look cheap also imo.  Check out some of patty inglish hubs and you can see these adds.

    There is some stupid widget under my profile that is not a google add.  Sometimes it is there.  Sometimes not.  If this is just hubpages 40% then so be it.  Seems like they should ask us to be included in their beta before they start putting crazy adds on our hubs.  Very confusing times now.

      Their ads on their 40% do not in anyway effect the revenues associated with YOUR 60%, on which those ads DO NOT appear. Understand?

      Hey Emie, it is going in waves of people, so a lot of people are not going to receive the first invites, but will receive them at a later time. smile big_smile

    Tile Cleaning Hub,

    I think you have misunderstood several things about this.

    First off, Hubpages is created by the same guys as Yeild Build, an ad optimization tool, that I have used on some of my own sites with success.

    For a long time now they have been testing ads on their own percentage of impressions, and now that they know it works, they are rolling it out so that we all get the benefits.

    Rather than just going on another tirade about something you don't understand about Hubpages, please just try and do a little research first!

      As you and I (and others) know, Tilecleaninghub has misunderstood things before.

        If only I had a dollar for every time that Tilecleaninghub gets cranky or insults someone or doesn't read something... oh wait, I do! (only it's more like $10 for each time)

        I suspect there are some site users out in Hubland who've made a drinking game out of his posts.

    Thanks for explaining that.  I did not understand that and I am willing to bet that a lot of other hubbers do not either.  I signed up for yield build.  Does it really work.  Gotta delete all my adsense first though.  I guess they take a small percentage of your profit.  I will give it a shot.

      Why do you need to delete all your Adsense?

        You are just deleting your own adsens and yield build will serve up what adds that they calculate will get you the most ctr.  You will still get your adsense but they will also vary adds, colors sizes etc.. to try to get you the best ctr.  Sounds cool.

      You can do it through your "my account" page, earnings.

            it's kinda cold up here in Canada and the bird would probably freeze before I get it

              Perhaps we ought to search the neighboring counties for any frozen animals.

              Or...could it be that this message is being delivered via Morse code?  I thought I heard a knocking at the door a little while ago.

      Congrats to you.

      I got one surprise that Hubpages Ad Program enabled in the Earnings Tab on my account. But so far I don't have any invite email from hubpages team.

      Is it fine to me to proceed further?
