I got invited in the 1st round. They are only inviting 500 at a time.
That means you are no longer an Uninvited Writer!
Everyone who is a member(and adsense participant) will eventually be allowed to participate in the Hubpages ad program. Hubpages just began rolling it out.
There are plenty of other threads already on this subject. I would suggest reading them.
I am using google adsence with my hubpages account but i didn't get any invitation ..you got ?
You're right, you didn't get an invitation and neither have I, just yet. But, the invitations have just begun, so be patient.
Were you one of those targeted during the sudden rash of inexplicable petty bannings a few month ago, Ray?
Still up, I see. Don't you need to rest up for tomorrow night's orgy at the river?? lol
Randy, are you telling me because I was banned that I'm not allowed to ever partake in the Hubpages Ad Program?
Just curious, because I've been banned more time than I care to count.
Simply a rap on the knuckles by the HP hall monitors, Ray. If this is the case, they know what they can do with their email.
No, not yet! I need to ask Haunty if he has been banned. So far, he is the only member of the Elite not "randomly" chosen.
There was talk of banned members being excluded from some programs if you remember. I suppose this may be an example of just such an incident.
Yep RG... Always nice to know where one stands in an artificially created environment, isn't it!
If I wasn't a mushroom, I'd almost say... well you can work that out!
Probably explains why I got banned.
Had a 20 month old hub with a hub score of 92 and on the front page of Google pulled down for 'Being wrongly classified' (After I Questioned my Ban!)
Have had a 'bug' in my account which removed my ability to publish new material for the last 10 days!
All my trackers are strangely 'not functioning' - yet HP continue to place 'invisible' Get Paid To Write Slogans on every one of my hubs, in direct competition to my trackers!
All within one week of release of a new 'Reward' system, PD goes from his steady top 25 hubbers slot all the way Down to 750th slot!
Get Real... 80% of my hubs are scored above 75 - That makes my work in the top echelon on this site!
(I remember that from the writer's guidelines posted by site founders 21 months ago!)
My haven't we changed... lucky I'm a Mushroom - Happy to be in the dark and BS
Why would you release something like this in a way that it creates a split between members, rather than wait and do it in a way that doesn't give boasting rights? Amazing what a few dollars and cents does to people!
Randy... you have an excellent perspective on industry and other things!
I've dealt with the cretins at helium, don't forget, PD! We wondered why so many folk were getting those stupid bans with such petty and unexplained reasons. Now we know!
Payback is always hell, though! Did you see this thread? Let's see how quick the staff addresses the hubs mentioned and why they were allowed to remain on the site so long. A real eye opener.
I'm Not Sure that I understand what you mean mate!
I don't know which thread you are referring to Randy
But yes certain 'situations' have been manipulated, for sure!
It has been the case for a long time and is often applied via the use of some interesting socks!
Why insult intelligent people with such draconian and 50s autocratic HR skills.. because they don't lick butts?
It seems that the standards are factually far lower than are promoted
I am so lucky to be a Nocturnal kiwi... we see so well in the dark!!
Sorry, PD! Here's the link. It will give you a better understanding why HP was slapped with the algo change. 10,000,000 views for a crap article here. Of course it was removed pretty quickly when pointed out.
Wanta make a bet it's ignored by staff?
I'm lost here. What was removed ? - that hub is still up and still pulling in the views no doubt.
It hasn't been removed mate!
That is amazing!
Just a Sock Account with 100,000,000 views and $1000/mth income from misleading people that it is the actual company site!
WITH The Blessing of HP... How Fn Sad!
Every Article intimates that it is written by the actual company!
On that yahoo one.. people have actually requested help from him/her in the belief that he/she is yahoo!
HP are bloody lucky that they haven't been sued for misrepresentation via this monkey! Anon of course! BUT NO DOUBT a 'Senior' Hubber under another name!
How many more are there?
Absolutely understand why SEs want to clean up certain sites!
I am Amazed and saddened by this Randy!
I am very happy to have not sold my soul to this BS
@FD... I'm not here for the $s... so whether I'm invited to a party is actually irrelevant. However, the other BS stuff, which was possibly used as justification for the lack of invitation, does concern me! It isn't a sour grapes argument, it is one of potentially compromising ethics to gain a result that is at best questionable anyway - given the presence of hubs like this on the site. Why Pull my well written works on the pretense that they are deceptive? That's the BSFD!
Ahhhh the Misfits lol. You know (yep, surprise surprise frog!) I got the ads. I neither expected nor didn't one of the invites. I don't give a monkeys what others think of the E on my profile, we're all in it together, end of story.
That said - I didn't get the sharp kick up the earnings jacksy that others are reporting. If anything I'm down. Obviously adsense will drop back, folks just can't click both ways (unless they're buy-sexual ) so that was a given.
Anyway dear Pd and Randy, stop ya grizzling. Some of us may find it's of no benefit. And some things in life just can't be bought - like frogs.
You just canny buy a frog on greenbacks alone. I already have one
I thought you were into pain...oh, wait...I'm thinking of some other pervert!
I am up and running in the Hubpages Ad Program. I received an invite on 02 MAR and activated my account the next day.
Do you have any hub with hubpages ads on it.... ???
I finally got my paypal straightened out and signed up yesterday evening. This morning shows over $1 already!
Wendy the HP team did say that they picked hubbers that were active. After 3 weeks and 30 hubs (which is an awesome number already by the way) you won't be pulling in the traffic that the team need in order to fully analyse the stats.
Don't take it personal. I've been here almost 2 years and still can't affiliate with Ebay, despite proving my worth
So, I'm in and I absolutely love it. It could not have come at a better time - when my earnings through AdSense are a bit off due to google messing about with their little algo.
I can see there being quite a bit of potential in this HP ad program. In addition, I think it will maximize revenue from previously "less monetizable"/less converting hubs.
I hope HP will take pity on such of those hubbers who never made any big money through Hubpages and invite them first! I will definitely qualify for it

I was just wondering how successful people are with the Hubpages ad program and if anyone had managed to make payout in one day yet. I have yet to earn over $5 in one day from the ad program. How about everyone else?
