Since I started using HP ad program, I noticed that my earnings on adsense are nearly nonexistent. While the HP ad program is consistently making income, adsense's CTR, ppc, and everything else is super low.
Is this normal?
Please forgive my ignorance, if I am missing something.
That sounds like what some other hubbers are experiencing. I tried it on my regular account.
After I had reached payout in March, I turned the HP ad program on for about a week. I still had some AdSense clicks but not nearly enough to make up for income I used to get with AdSense alone. On the HP ad program I earned an average of only about 40 cents per day.
I turned the HP ads off and the very next day made nearly $12 on AdSense. Which is a good day for me. So, the HP ad programs didn't work for me. Others are experiencing good results. I didn't.
Later on, if HubPages wlll allow us to pick and choose which hubs we want to add the HP ads too, I might try it again. I don't know.
I couldn't comment on whether or not this is 'normal' but it is the same thing that I found when I activated the HP ads.
I have deactivated the HP ads now just to see if things go back up.
I only had the ad program on for a short time and saw a drastic difference decline with Adsense so I turned it off. I'm having record days with Adsense now...not willing to chance it. I appreciate the program and I'm sure it is beneficial for a lot of hubbers but not so much for me. I'll stick with my Adsense earnings.

Hi, what was you maximum earning with HubPages Ad Program in a month (not google adsense)? Is it possible to make much money with this program? Thanks.

I know we're not supposed to discuss specific earnings, but for those who have been around a while, which ad program seems to earn more, the HP Ad Program or Adsense? I'm still undecided as to which one to use.

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...

Is it better to earn incrementaly, 40 cents a day, or turn off the HP ads and enter the Adsense lottery, where you might get a zero or a $5 click?One is more sensible and the other more exciting, methinks! ;-)

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...
