Hubpages Earning Program and Google Adsense Program: The Differences

Updated on March 30, 2018

Hubpages, over the past few years, have been established into a great platform for inspiring and published writers alike. It has grown into a flourished community of active writers, who share hundreds and thousands of hubs daily on lots of varied topics.

In order to cater their financial needs, Hubpages have always been active and thoughtful. In order to continue this practice – along with many other profitable options – Hubpages has also introduced a Hubpages Earning program.

Although, this program has been active for quite a while, still there are some differences between the Hubpages earning program and the Google AdSense program, which still tend to confuse newcomers. Relatively new myself, i have carried out a little research with the aim of providing a guide that might have been useful when i started out. The following are some of the major differences between the Hubpages Earning Program and the Google AdSense Program.


In order to get connected with the Google AdSense Program, you need to have a Google AdSense account. This account is applied to and verified by the mighty Google. On the other hand, in order to receive payment from the Hubpages Earning Program, you only need to have a PayPal account, by which your money is sent to you.

2.Payout Threshold:

In the Google AdSense Account, your payment threshold is usually a $100 limit. Once you reach that limit, Google sends out the money to you. However, in the Hubpages Earning Program, the payout threshold is set only to a $50 limit.


The Google AdSense Program is a standalone earning program, which is not collaborated with other money making programs. However, the Hubpages Earning Program makes it easier for the Hubbers to organize their income from all the potential services.

It lets the users to combine its eBay and Amazon affiliate income. In this way, the payout limit’s duration time can even further be minimized.

4.Earning Method:

There is a significant difference in the earnings methods between the Hubpages Earning Program and the Google AdSense Program. The Google AdSense program generates money for you, whenever a reader of your hubs clicks on any of the displayed ads. You or your fellow hubbers are considered not to make any deliberate clicks to generate the extra amount of money.

On the other hand, the earning method of the Hubpages Earning Program is a bit different. It works on the CPM basis, which is based on the ad impressions. No one has to click the ads, if you want to generate the money. Merely viewing the page will be sufficient enough.

As you can see that there are many significant differences in the Google AdSense Program and the Hubpages Earning Program. However, most of the hubbers have reported that, when combined the above-mentioned two programs together, they experienced a rise in their total earnings.

      Useful points.

      There is also a difference between the kind of traffic you want for CPC adverts compared to CPM. For CPC you want "motivated" viewers who are likely to follow ad links to relevant places. For CPM, well, an eyeball is an eyeball.
