I'd like to try temporarily deactivating HubPages Ad Program on my account for a week to see if Adsense earnings goes up again. If I decide to reactivate the HubPages Ad Program later, will it just continue where it left off?
I already have some earnings in the HubPages Ad Program and I don't want to lose that. Thanks.
Susan, I noticed nobody has yet answered this, and I'm probably not the best one to answer; but I thought I'd post what I do know:
I had the HP ads active in March and some of April, but the other day I temporarily disabled them to see how that would impact my AS earnings. The ads have been off for a couple of days. The earnings (for HP AP) I had before turning off the ads are showing as "balance" on my account. I'm not sure, of course, but I'm assuming whatever is earned is earned. (It didn't even occur to me that I might lose what I'd earned , so I just shut the HP ads off. I sure hope I'm right about not having that balance wiped out because I shut off the ads - but it doesn't look like that's the case.

Good questions! Hope to see an answer from HP staff. Am curious.
I switched them off for a couple of days to see if it improved my Adsense. It didn't. I switched them back on again and everything carried on.
Yesterday I had my best Adsense day even with the HP Ads switched on. Which kind of settled me a bit, because for a while I was thinking maybe the HP ads disabled Adsense.
This is not very scientific but it all apears to be working as expected.
I was lucky enough to get in the second HP ads picks in the middle of March. I'm not sure if it affected my Adsense earnings in March as March was my highest earnings on Adsense. I thought April would give me a better indication how HP ads affected my Adsense earnings. So far my Adsense earnings are much lower compared to March, but it's not because of HP ads although it might be one of the reasons.. the main reason is very low traffic from Google. All of my hubs that were on pages 1 and 2 of Google had disappeared and are nowhere to be found.. it's so frustrating. At first I thought I was the only one, but reading forum threads shows that most everyone's in the same boat. Right now my HP ads earnings are more than double that of my Adsense earnings.
Paul did say you had to have earned over $50 before you deactivated it or you wouldn't get paid.
UW, would you please provide a link about that? I thought that statement was referring to permanent deactivation, not to a temporary one that was intended as a way of checking the program's effectiveness. I mean by that, if someone later reactivates the HubAds program, their previous balance would be carried over, but there would not be any payout - period - until the $50 threshold is reached. Is that correct?
I'd like to see the link, if possible. I think that's a very poor policy.
Does that mean the minimum payment threshold for the HubPages Ad Program is $50? I assumed it would be $100...
Could somebody please lead me to the HubPages Ad Program payment policies page? I can't seem to find it. Thanks.
When I switched it off I had a couple of dollars in the HP balance. When I switched it back on the couple of dollars were still there, and being added to.
I think Paul means that you have to make fifty dollars before you could expect to be paid. ie. If you want to leave the HP program and you haven't earned enough then you won't ever get that balance.
But popping out does not clear your balance to zero.
Thanks for clearing that up, I misunderstood.
Sorry to cause concern
Thanks, Mark. That clarifies it for me too.
Thanks for your answers, everyone. You've helped clarify things for me.

Feeling slightly apprehensive and even a little guilty for having done so! Do HubPages earn a share of my Adsense earnings and what would the effect be if everyone switched to Adsense?

A few days ago, I noticed that a lot of people were talking about changing from HP Ad Program to Google AdSense. I had tried that a few years ago, but switched back pretty quickly because I earned better with HP....
