I know that someone mentioned the email being sent to us from Adsense telling us to change the size of the 250x250 to the larger rectangle, however, I received this one today:
We found that 138 of your ads aren't enabled to help you achieve your maximum earning potential.
Currently, 25% of your units are only opted into text ads and 29% are only opted into image/rich media ads on richieb799.hubpages.com. We recommend that you opt in to both text and image/rich media ads for all your AdSense ad units.
sorry if this has been mentioned already but I just wondered what Hubpages intends to do, I know they have been given privelege by Google to display more than 3 ads, I read another forum post briefly the other day where Paul mentioned these changes and spreading the extra revenue across the HP Ads..I just wondered what they thought of this email?
I suspect Hubpages knows more about what works best on hubpages, based on the fact the try different stuff all the time and have direct access to the results.
Lets hope so lol, traffic has been up fine but the last few days, the clicks have dropped? that makes you wonder if we do need to change to more text/image, larger sizes etc
The first few weeks of this month my daily earnings were double what they've been the last few days
My traffic is not as high as it was a couple weeks ago, but my CPM is 50% higher than it used to be. Every 1000 views counts for a lot more than it used to, at least lately, prob because of the new type of ads.
If I could get to higher traffic levels than I am currently, I would not be surprised if I made $25.00 in one day.
Yes I definitely know what you mean David, perhaps I am being hasty since it has only happened over the last 3 days. Before Monday my earnings were consistantly high.
Traffic is still important..I'm building my traffic up on Adsense by building my portfolio of sites, I have a handful of sites now receiving around 100 views a day as well.
What makes it even more bizarre, is that my best hub that gets anywhere between 700-1200 views a day, has just moved to 1st from second today? :S
I got the email today too. Mine says....
We've noticed that you're running less than three ad units on 205 of your pages on kccbigcountry.hubpages.com. We recommend that you add any of our top performing units (336x280, 300x250, 728x90 or 160x600) to prominent sections of your pages currently showing only 1 or 2 ads in the placements our heat map suggests. A single unit can have a big impact on your AdSense performance. You have at least 208 unused ad units on the pages we reviewed, that's a lot of untapped potential!

In the past I relied solely on Adsense to earn income from Hubpages, however this year I was able to finally open a PayPal account, so I signed up for the Hubpages Ad program. As expected, I saw a drop in my Adsense...

There is currently a problem with the display of AdSense ads across HubPages. We are investigating the issue, and hope to have ads working again soon.

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...

Do you guys who have 100 hubscores pay for ads for a site that leads to hubpages or hubpages themselves? And how do you do this?Also, June seems slow, can't remember if that is how things worked last year.

If we turn off HubPages Ads and replace them with one Amazon Ad would our ability to earn decent money be compromised? Would we still earn from Adsense? Could someone please explain the different...
