According to HubPages revenue sharing system 40% of impressions are received on HubPages Adsense pub-id and the rest 60% our Adsense publisher id is shown.
Now what I want to know is that as we don't know how many impressions we are going to receive so how does HubPages decides the rotation system? Is the rotation random or first 40% impressions for HubPages and then us or the other way around? Also, if the system is not random then this 40% is decided out of what total? The first 10 or first 100?
You can find the exact details by pressing the help button above. As far as I know it is still done on a random basis, ie each page that is displayed has a 60% chance of being yours and a 40% chance of being HubPages.
You can check this by displaying the page and looking at the code to see the share. Various people have done this and no one has ever challanged the randomness of it!
I don't know, and I doubt that HP will tell you exactly how they decide whose adds will be shown on a page..
As long as I get my 60% share I don't mind if it is for the 2nd, 3rd, and 7th views or whatever.. As long as they don't choose the 40% of traffic that comes from the US and leave me the remaining.....
If you search posts made by Paul Deeds (hubpages staff), he's clarified questions about the ad system and impressions in the past. The ad share is randomized.

Some people have said they've turned off HP Ads and just use Adsense and actually make more money from Adsense. I'm considering trying that out and was curious how much more some of you are making just through Adsense....
