I was getting good, so clearly there was a problem.
I also noticed that there are still ads on my hubs but that I'm no longer the one getting paid for people clicking on them. So someone else must still be getting paid for those ads and therein lies the issue.
So as of this moment I am beginning the process of moving my hubs over to my blogs and deleting them here. It's been fun, but I don't think it's fair that someone else gets to profit from my hard work.
If AdSense booted you, how are you going to profit on your own blog? Alternate ad source?
I’ve seen posts about people getting their AdSense reinstated. It’s difficult, but apparently not impossible. I’d at least make one attempt before giving up.
What reason did Goggle have for performing this action?
(Just curious,so I can know what to avoid)
Wow..what was the reason? This always troubles me when I hear this from people. I agree with paradigmsearch, are you going to try to get your account back?
Nate, I got mine back in only 3 days somehow... so I know it can be done. Don't give up! And moving your hubs will not do you any good, at least they can make money from HP ads here.
Hey Sandy, that is untrue. You cannot make money from HP Ads without an Adsense account.
For the record, yes, I did appeal that very day. They have, however, decided that they are unable to reinstate my account.
Until all of my hubs are safely transferred to the blogs, I am not going to post the highly detailed letter of response that I wrote back to them and also posted on my facebook account.
However, if you would like to read a copy of my response, please feel to friend me on facebook or send me a message via e-mail.
Garret: Google Adsense did not invent the concept of making money online. There is a thing called a request for donations and a paypal account. It's about as reliable as Adsense has been and at least I get the amount of money donated up front without having to wait two and a half years.
Sandy: There are still advertisments being posted on my hubs. Which means someone is still going to click on them and someone else is making money for those ads. Who else but hub? If you know for certain that they aren't making the money then I stand corrected. So leaving them here isn't doing me any good, but I'll be damned if I'm going to let anyone else get the benefit either.
Good luck with that.
It is no secret that the ad impressions are split 60/40 (60% to you, the remaining to HP HQ). So why wouldn't it revert to 100% HubPages?
Thanks for the snide reply! I totally deserved a rude answer for a legitimate question!
I guess I should have worded my question:
"What specifically did you have in mind as an alternate source of income?"
You can disable ads on your hubs I believe? Then you will know that no one is receiving benefits from your work.
It is easy to disable ads on your Hubs, it is an option when you hit the edit button.
I think you will find earning from donations or from paywalls/sales/whatever to be vastly different from advertising. Consider using Chitika or using Project Wonderful if you're really dedicated to making money online without Adsense.
Or look into affiliates. The google affiliate network has a lot of interesting options.
Chitika does indeed look eminently doable. In fact, I would be completely unsurprised if I were to hear that Chitika is already a part of the hpad's program.
