Hubpages Ads Earnings

    Do earnings from the Hubpages Ad program include earnings from the ads on your question page?
    If so, are the ads on the questions page turned on automatically if you have opted for Hubpages Ads?

      If your Q&A is on your subdomain, then yes. It's an option that you can choose, but once you do, it's permanent. I hope that made sense. I didn't really understand it when I first did it, all I knew was that I could make money off the views on my questions as well as my articles by switching the questions to my subdomain.

      The short answer is yes to both questions lol, sorry... lol

        Thanks for clarifying DOM.

      The answer is no.

      If you switch your Q&A to subdomain, you get adsense earnings on 60% of the impressions and Hubpages gets 40% of the impressions. There are no Hubpages Ads on Q&A., at least for now.

        Wow, I must be imagining those ads that I see on the questions, lol.

        There are two ads displaying on every question that I am viewing.

          There are ads on all questions. If you don't host questions on your sub domain then they are hubpages adds. If you do, then you get a share. It is the same share as on your hubs, but since there are only two, I am not sure how that works out.

            Remember all income is based on 60% of the time the ads are displayed, not 60% of the adverts, so whether it was 1 advert or 10 adverts it would be based on 60% of the time those ads were displayed that you were paid for.

              Wow, I didn't know it was the amount of time the ads were displayed that we were paid for. Let me just clarify, it's the length of time the ad is shown on the page? Is that correct? (I get confused with all these ad earnings things.)

                40% of the time HP gets any earnings from the ads and any item sales your hubs.  The other 60% of the time you do.  It just depends on if you get clicks or sales during your turn or not whether you earn anything, DOM.  Personally, I wish we could see how much HP makes from their share on our work.  After all, they can see our earnings.  smile

                  Thanks Randy, that makes much more sense. We should be able to see their earnings lol. I bet there 40% is more than my 60% lol

                    I'm not surprised at anything here anymore, DOM.  I hate that!  smile

                I see Randy has already beaten me to it and answered your question so all I can add is that he is correct, Ads are on your articles 100% of the time, 60% of which you get any revenue from and 40% of which HP gets the revenue from. The times of day your code or HP's code are used are supposed to be random, which infers that you both get equal shares of having your code displayed at the best times of day to maximise likely views/clicks.

                  "Supposed to be" are the key words here, Misty.  But I'm sure they can look at both their time and ours to see when the most lucrative times of the day and week for the best traffic and earnings occur.  I'd rather they take the first 24 minutes of each hour and give us the last 36 each and every hour so we could check on this without having to go to each hub individually.

                  Still, I'd like to see the earnings on their share of our work.  Especially now.  They can see ours, so why not the other way around?  I don't see why they would have a problem with this and it would help engender trust--something fleeting at this point IMHO--from the writers. smile

                    I like the sound of the 24mins/36 mins split. That sounds very fair. I also agree it would be good to see what HP earn from our work as they can see what we earn smile

          And the google adsense income I am seeing from my questions must be imaginary too!

            Do you have them on your subdomain?

    I haven't even looked at this on my own questions, so sorry if I am way off the mark, but is it possible that ngureco literally was referring to there being no 'HP Ads' on questions, (although if asked he might have acknowledged there were 'Adsense Ads' as a separate thing?) After all, his exact response was 'There are no Hubpages Ads on Q&A., at least for now.' and this was in answer to a question which asked 'Do earnings from the Hubpages Ad program include earnings from the ads on your question page?' which specifically referred to HP Ads and not Adsense Ads?

    Of course it should be noted that certainly on Hubs most Adsense Ads shown are actually paid out by the HP Ad program, even though it may be very clear the Ads are sourced from Adsense. Not sure if this is the same on questions though.

      Ahhh quite correct. The Q&A only has Google Ads at the moment and is not linked to HP Ads! Now I really should learn to read the question!!!

        No worries SimeyC, I am glad you have checked and confirmed my suspicions as I had not checked personally, it was just a theory smile

      That’s right, Mistyhorizon2003.

      In the Answers section Hubbers can receive earnings from Google AdSense.  The HP Ads Program does not run in the Answer section of the site.

      This is exactly what Ari Lamstein, HubPages Staff, is stating in the post http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/96478?p … ost2065308
