Dang - I'm just as qualified for that one as the never ending acoustic guitar reviews. Guess I'll stick to what I like over what I'm equally qualified to present.
I am pleased with one thing of late though - my guitar or music hubs now feature adverts from a Music store that I actually do business with sometimes, "Mundt Music" in Tyler, Texas - high paying or no, I like that folks that I actually know and like are being promoted on my pages.
Sad to say, they probably aren't. Were I to guess, you have looked at such stores or what they sell; google takes that information, combines it with your location and puts the ad up (that the store then pays for). Were I to look at the hub I probably wouldn't see it.
But do they take in consideration we aren't allowed to click ads on our won hubs? I think they are simply following us no matter where we are on the internet so we might see an ad related to what we have searched for earlier.
I know some cancelled their Gmail accounts because of ads appearing related to email subjects they had recently discussed. It seems to be a blanket policy regardless of whether it endangers Adsense affiliates or not.
It took me a minute to figure that one out. You are absolutely right that google follows us everywhere and watches what we do. You can't turn it off for your own viewing, just turn it off so that visitors histories aren't used to put ads on your hubs.
If I found my Gmail account being used that way I would leave too, and it wouldn't take a month to do so. Or a week or 10 minutes.
I've had a few that high or higher and it always amazes me too. Without knowing which ad on the page is responsible for the high clicks it's hard to tell exactly what keyword is responsible for the big bucks. I think we just get lucky occasionally.
I checked my adsense account today not expecting to see anything other than: Earnings £0.00, and low and behold there it was, my first adsense click. I now have the grand total of £0.07 pence which is roughly about...
I can't believe how long it took me to get that last .12 cents I needed, but this morning it finally happened and I am now a little over $100.00.I have been here almost 9 months and was hoping to reach the pay out...
Today I got my Biggest adsense click from hubpages. It was over $7(can't disclose exact amount due to Adsense TOS). I am happy but had not made channels for individual hubs so don't know which hub brought me the click....
I finally did it I made my first $5 on Adsense today after 59 hubs and 3 months here. Their is hope for us all. thanks hubpages for the oppurtunity to make some cash no matter how small. I love it!!!!!
