Is Hubpages Ad Program killing Adsense Earnings?

Updated on June 14, 2012
- Is Hubpages Ad Program killing Adsense Earnings? -
- Is Hubpages Ad Program killing Adsense Earnings? -

Most of you must have heard of the new Hubpages Ad Program by now. The Hubpages Ad Program was created by Hubpages to give us hubbers an opportunity to earn more money, on top of Adsense, Amazon and eBay. It had been tested since January 2011 and is now open for everyone to join.

The main difference between Google Adsense and Hubpages Ad Program, is this:

  • with Adsense, your earnings depend on the number of clicks on the Google ads on your hubs; whereas
  • with the Hubpages Ad Program, you earn by impressions on your hubs, meaning no clicks involved, just views.

Many hubbers who have signed up with the Hubpages Ad Program have reported that their combined Adsense and Hubpages Ads earnings have doubled their earnings on Adsense alone. Some have reported their Hubpages Ad Program earnings have been higher than their Adsense earnings.

However, there are some who had reported that Hubpages Ad Program is killing Adsense earnings.

You will find some threads in the forums where some hubbers are saying they had turned off the Hubpages Ads in their hubs as their Adsense earnings had been spiraling down, mainly because of the Google Panda, but they believe the Hubpages Ad Program was contributing to the demise of their Adsense earnings. However, a few had reported back saying that even after they had turned off the Hubpages Ads, their Adsense earnings remained in coma, if not dead.

Maybe April was just a slow month.. we hope so.

Maybe May would be better.. we all wish.

Let's put the Hubpages Ad Program to the test

As the Hubpages Ad Program is new, and I am fairly new here on Hubpages (six months), I might be a good guinea pig to put the Hubpages Ads Program to the test. My experience might be of no consequence for the established hubbers who have been here in Hubpages for years and have been earning hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars monthly on Adsense. Yes, there are very successful hubbers earning a good living writing here on Hubpages.

However, my experience might benefit new hubbers like myself, who are just starting to earn a few dollars on Adsense. Will the Hubpages Ad Program kill your Adsense earnings?

I was one of the second wave of hubbers who got picked in late March 2011 to sign up with the Hubpages Ad Program. I had been hearing from the first wave of hubbers and from those who had had the Hubpages Ads since January 2011, reporting faster and better earnings on the Hubpages Ad Program than Adsense. However, they were also reporting that their Adsense earnings were down, but the combined earnings from both Hubpages Ads and Adsense, were still higher compared to their earnings before Hubpages Ads.

March Earnings

I joined Hubpages in November 2010, and didn't have Adsense account until late that month. When most hubbers were seeing their Adsense earnings soared in November and December, I had zero earnings in November, but was ecstatic to see $3.99 earnings for December. My Adsense earnings had been on an upward trend since then, and I was having a good March Adsense earnings when I signed up for the Hubpages Ad program on March 23, 2011.

So, did the Hubpages Ad program kill my Adsense earnings from March 23 to March 31st? The answer is No. My Adsense earnings in March were even higher than my Adsense earnings in February, although not that much higher.

  • Adsense Earnings in Feb 2011 - $18.16
  • Adsense Earnings in Mar 2011 - $20.36

(Please click on image to see the original size.)

Adsense Earnings - February 2011 and March 2011

From March 23rd to March 31st, my Adsense earnings were even a little higher than my Hubpages Ads earnings, just a few cents higher but still higher.

  • March 23 to March 31 Adsense earnings - $7.03
  • March 23 to March 31 Hubpages Ads earnings - $6.50

(Please click on image to see the original size.)

Adsense and Hubpages Ads earnings - March 23, 2011 to March 31, 2011

Adsense earnings - March 23, 2011 to March 31, 2011
Adsense earnings - March 23, 2011 to March 31, 2011
Hubpages Ads earnings - March 23, 2011 to March 31, 2011
Hubpages Ads earnings - March 23, 2011 to March 31, 2011

It could be argued that I could have earned more on Adsense in March had it not been for the Hubpages Ads. Maybe, maybe not. But I was thrilled to see my Adsense earnings reached $20 in March, even with Hubpages Ads on the last nine days of the month. And with the extra earnings from Hubpages Ads ($6.50), my combined earnings for March was $26.86 ($20.36 + $6.50). This might seem minuscule for some, but for me, it was awesome.

Ok, maybe March is not a good example to show any adverse effect of Hubpages Ads on Adsense earnings. So, let's see how April looks.

April Earnings

April turned out to be a slow month for everyone because the new Google algorithm rolled out internationally in April. Traffic almost died for a few days. April started slow for both my Adsense and Hubpages Ads earnings. No traffic means no impressions and no clicks. But by the middle of April, things started to pick up, and by the end of the month, my combined earnings on Adsense and Hubpages Ads almost doubled my earnings in March ($20.36).

  • April 2011 Adsense Earnings - $18.82
  • April 2011 Hubpages Ads Earnings - $21.42
  • Combined earnings: $18.82 + $21.42 = $40.24

(Please click on image to see the original size.)

Adsense Earnings - April 2011

Hubpages Ads Earnings - April 2011

So, did Hubpages Ad program kill my Adsense earnings in April? Again, the answer is No. My Adsense earnings held it's own against the Hubpages Ad program.

After having Adsense for almost six months, my Adsense earnings to date is $86.47. It might take me another month or two to reach the $100 Adsense payout threshold. It seems that the average time to reach Adsense payout is 6 to 9 months. There are exceptions to the rule, of course. I have heard of a few people who had reached Adsense threshold payout after a month or two. It could happen. It didn't happen to me, but it could happen to you. But likewise, there are some who had taken longer than a year to get their first Adsense paycheck.

On the other hand, I would like to show you my Hubpages Ads earnings from March 23, 2011 to May 8, 2011. In 47 days, I have earned $36.03, which gives me an average earnings of 76 cents a day. This might not be much, but it is consistent. With Adsense, it's drastic ups and downs. Some days are euphoric, but some days might give you a heart attack when you see $0.00 earnings. It happens. Plus Hubpages Ad Program payment threshold is only $50. So you will see your first paycheck on Hubpages Ad Program much faster.

Hubpages Ads Earnings - March 23, 2011 to May 8, 2011

The Hubpages Ad program might not be for everyone. But Hubpages is giving us an opportunity to earn more money in addition to that of Adsense, Amazon and eBay. You can sign up with the Hubpages Ad program, and if you don't like it, you have the option of turning it off. But, what's not to like?

So, is Hubpages Ad program killing Adsense earnings? So far, the answer is No.

    Hi Dataload, sorry for the late reply. Thank you for reading my hub about Hubpages Ad Program. That hub needs to be updated as Hubpages changed the ads layout and only allowed one Google ad and placed it at the bottom of the hub, and that, my dear, killed Adsense earnings for me and most hubbers.

    Have a wonderful day,

    My Adsense revenue goes way up if i disable Hubpages Ads. I think it just depends on if your audience clicks on the ads a lot or not.

    @moizk - I'm glad you found my hub on Adsense and Ad Program informative. But please note, that the latest changes in the Hubpages layout, putting the one-and-only Google ad at the bottom of the hub, really killed Adsense earnings for most of us. From reaching Adsense payout ($100) every two months, now it takes more than six months (if we're lucky!) to get a paycheck from Adsense.

    Check out The Hubpages Ad Program here -

    Welcome to Hubpages, and I wish you all the best. Cheers!

    Thank you all for your comments. I'm glad you found my early analysis of the effect of HP Ads Program on Adsense earnings, informative.


    1) I had reached HP Ads payout threshold in May 2011, then every two months after until October 2011, when my HP Ads earnings had surpassed the payout threshold monthly from then on.

    2) Even with HP Ads Program layout change, I continue to reach Adsense payout every two months.

    A Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year to All,

    At first I was earning about the same with AdSense and HubPages - now I'm earning much more with HubPages, and Adsense has dipped slightly. If you want to increase your HubPages revenue since it is pageview related, do some social networking and promote your hubs - you'll see a difference in your earnings in short order.

    It is also important to fill out a hub "summary" - write 2-3 descriptive sentences about your hubs, and it will help to drive traffic for you. Search engines often use this summary.

    I've found that I am earning a TON more with the HubPages ad program than AdSense. Although I wasn't earning much with AdSense in the beginning, it was still moving slightly every so often. Now that I am using the HubPages ad program, AdSense has completely dried up. I'm not complaining though- I'd rather go with the HubPages ad program than anything because of how much more quickly I earn with it.

    Interestingly I have hardly ever made any money from the adsense ads on hubpages. On my own sites, I earn good adsense revenues. When I signed on for the hubpage programs my hubs started earning money right away. I don't think that the hubpages program killed adsense, at least in my case, as much as adsense was not a good money maker based on my content and or the site's layout. Had I not switched to hubpages program I would have continued to earn almost nothing here. I am very happy with hubpages's program.

    Hello. I just joined the Hubpages Ad program last night and have already seen a few pennies comming in. While my Adsense has been doing 'ok', it is always nice to see a little more coming in. I don't write for the money, but it definitely does not hurt to have money every once in a while for a night out or something. This is a great Hub and I have voted it up and useful!

    To be honest, the adsense earnings depends on clicks and I must say that its harder to get those clicks than getting pageviews. Why hate Hubpages and Adsense together. I think thats an extra way of rewarding yourself! If you don't get a click, at least your getting page view earnings. This is exactly the same for me. This month so far in September, I haven't had any clicks as of yet. However, last month I received my 1st ad click on hubpages which gave me a whopping £1-seventy-seven. Sorry my seven doesn't work on my laptop lol! :D

    In dollars this would probably have been $3-$4 just for that 1 click. However, since writing my FIRST hub here on Hubpages, I had the ad program active and have earned $2-seventy-seven as of this writing. If the ad program was not used, I wouldn;t have had this income would I. Just imagine if I would have been $20 like your earnings Rosie. Thats quite a loss isnt it and many here are losing out as well :(.

    Great article by the way. Very informative and I LOVEEEE article earning stats on hubs! Was good to take the time to read. By the way again, how on earth do you manage earning $0.50 and over $1 in a day. How much traffic do you recieve...:D I was hoping to reach those figures soon. I am only acheiving a few cents a day with just 43 hubs. You have only 115!! :O

    I saw my AdSense collapse, but it happened all at the same time in March. I have only recently started to see a return of traffic. I made the $50 Ad Program level and turned off the Program to see if my CTR on AdSense will improve again. If not, I will start the Ad Program again. So far, AdSense is not returning but I will give it a few more weeks.

    This is the only article I have read up to yet on the Hub ads revenue. I just added it and hoped for the best really. I am not yet earning much anywhere with anything to do with my hubpages account. I have $1 thanks to hubpages revenue. But I was told you need $100 to be paid. It should help with my pension funds in 3 decades then.

    Question is how many hubs have you published to earn the current earnings from Hubpages and Adsense. I am just starting to publish on hubpages and I want to know what a good target goal is. How many hubs will earn you approximately how much?

  • belief713 profile image


    7 years ago from NJ

    I'm not 100% sure it's from the Ad Program, but I'd have to guess that's a large chunk of why my earnings have dropped with both Amazon and AdSense... unless it doesn't apply until you join. Every once in a while I analyze my earnings and since I've noticed both payments getting smaller for the past few months I started looking into what may be the cause.

    Silly me, I got the invite for the Hub Ad Program back in March, but never acted on it! I just thought my earnings had dropped because of the Google slap or while analyzing I was going through some old emails and then logged in here (I honestly haven't been on HubPages for the past few months but every once in a while) and saw info about the Ad Program. Needless to say, I signed up a few hours ago, now I'll be tracking my results as well.

    Hi Rosie,

    Thanks for sharing your experience of the Hubpages ad program with us. I only signed up to it less than a week ago, and initial signs are looking good, although it's really too early to tell.

    Since I joined though, I have had zero Adsense earnings. I normally get something even if it's just pence, so I was quite surprised by this, but I will watch and wait and see what happens. I'm hoping that overall it will be a good thing for us all!

    My experience so far with the Hub Pages Ad Program is that it has doubled my income per month. I write on a variety of topics, so perhaps that is why my earnings haven't suffered the way other Hubbers have, especially in regards to Adsense earnings. My Google Adsense earnings are just about equal to my Hub Pages Ad Program earnings. Currently I have 100 hubs, and I've been writing on HubPages for a little over 2 years.

    Great Hub with lots of info for the newbie!

    I really don't think the new ad program is going to make that much difference. The Panda update along with Hubpages misguided and doomed to fail affiliate link blanket topic ban is slowly demonstrating the downward spiral of the sharecropping model.

    The affiliate link topic blanket ban will is just the beginning. Hubpages has reserved the option to introduce new banned topics for affiliate links. Thereby choking off any revenue stream which Hubpages can't claim there cut on.

    This new ignorant rule was designed to try and make up for lost revenue due to panda although it has nothing to do with discouraging hubbers publishing low quality hubs.

    Spam hubbers will just move to other topics, then predictably Hubpages will in turn ban affiliate links for those topics.

    Hubpages will quickly only be useful as a second rate backlink resource at best!

    As other top hubbers like Sunforged and Ryankett I am looking to other platforms like blogger and wordpress to protect myself from the next round of Hubpage Nazi-ism.

    Diversification as well as quality is the key, its too easy to become complacent and too comfortable on a single publishing platform.

    Hey thanx for your beautiful hub. You have provided enough information which i was looking for. I stopped writing on hubpages because i was not earning from adsense so i started writing in triond which also pays for per page impression beside adsnese. But when Hubpages introduced this new program i am loving Hubpages again. I am earning 15 to 20 cents on an average which is not bad for a amateur writers like me. In my opinion Hubpages ad program should be there always. Voted up :) Cheers

    This is a really useful hub. I switched to the new Ad Program last week, and I am really happy with the results. I just was not doing well at all with Adsense on this site, although I was doing well with it on other sites. However, with the new Hubpages Ad Program, I make a profit everyday. I like how it is more consistent. I am also a little angry at Google for the Panda update, so if I lose some revenue with Google, but gain it using the Hubpages program, I am fine with that.
