Why Bother?

    I have read that HP's earnings are far less than Google Adsense so Hubbers are deactivating HP. I must say that HP is the only thing working for me as of now. Google clicks so far this month-0. Amazon sales-1 HP? Daily clicks.
    Although they are far from what they once were, I'll take HP any day. As for Google? Why Bother.
    Anyone else feeling my pain?

      I earn more on HubAds.  It is case-by-case.

    Your HP Ads may be affecting the otehr advertising platforms, have you tried testing without HP ads on to see if it creates any changes? (I would try with a simple month on/month off test to begin with)

    Hey Paula, I tried and tested HP Ad program and it wasn't beneficial for me, so I turned them off.

    I earn about the same, of course I have hit the HP threshold and am yet to get paid, so we will see.  But My adsense has dropped substantially.  So right now, HP pays better, but I think that is the way it is supposed to work. HP makes up for what you lose in Adsense earnings and in the end you should earn more in total.  Only time will tell if it works out that way.

    HP ads have been an improvement for me so far.

      Since Panda struck, yes HP have made up for a lot. Not only that, but month by month the payments are getting higher.

        Izzy, pleased to hear of your monthly improvement. Have you tweaked your hubs or the layout to give you the improvement you are seeing with hp ads?

          No - just made the changes HP made us change about product links, rss feeds etc.
          Traffic hasn't risen overall either, so there is no good reason I can see for an increase in HPads earnings.
          Perhaps the very slight increase in yahoo and bing traffic is doing it?
          Yesterday I had my first zero click day on adsense for a long time:(

    Thanks, thought I might have been missing a trick. Interesting though you mentioned yahoo and Bing traffic. I had an increase in traffic from those sources just after the 2nd panda but it has now returned to normal. My gradual increase in traffic is now more from google.com which suits my Amazon based hubs.smile
    Which is another reason I fear that I don't do that well the Hub ads programme.

    I have not verified this yet, but it seems I have been making more with HP Ad Program than adsense. Adsense would give me record days, but sometimes it would be the complete opposite where I would barely make anything. (Even when I got a lot more traffic before Google Panda)

    Honestly, if the HP ad program existed when I was receiving my original traffic before panda, I might have made 20-50% more. (Just an estimate though)
