Since Google adSense ads only appear so far down a hub page, I wonder if it's even worth having them in my hubs. Seriously, I've only made about $1 in adSense earnings. I make more through the HP adProgram than I do through Google adSense. Is that pretty much the same for all hubbers? Why are we not able to choose where we place them such as the Amazon and eBay capsules?
Little puzzled as I notice you have Google Ads on the top of all the pages I looked at!
Well, that solved that mystery! Only been here six weeks. Apologies, I am still learning the ropes. For some reason I thought they were one and the same!
That was a light bulb moment,! I guess I had not realized before that you could in effect earn money on HubPages without even applying for Google Adsense,
Yes, you can. In fact those ads earn you money simply from impressions whereas with the Google adSense ads you only earn money when someone clicks on an ad.
You can actually make money via Adsense for impressions only. I have never had an Adsense advert clicked on, but I have made a small amount of money via impressions.
Having said that, my HubPages Ad Program money far outstrips the money made on Google Adsense, although looking at the FAQ link I can now understand why.
No - First you need an Adsense account to be eligible for the HP program.
As chasmac said, you need to register for an adsense account first before you can join in on the HP adprogram.
So, in a nutshell my lightbulb above just went out! To get any earnings from your Hubs, from any source whatsoever you need Google Adsense. I had not realized until now that the earnings reflected on the Hubpages Earnings page comes from the HP Program rather than Google Adsense in spite of it clearly having a 'Google' next to the ad appearing at the top of the page. Any other earnings will be reflected on your Amazon, E-Bay or Adsense Account 's actual account pages.
This setup has confused a lot of Hubbers but there is a lot of info in the Learning Centre and FAQ you might try starting there, here is a link to get you started:
As others have pointed out, you can't be a member of the HP Earnings Program if you don't have an Adsense account.
Given that you've got to have Adsense, you may as well use it, even if it's only at the bottom of the page.
You can use Amazon without having an Adsense account, although ideally you really should be doing your absolute best to get an Adsense account so you can join the HP Ad program and earn from that, plus the few cents you will then get from Adsense itself then (it adds up over time).

On browsing the forum, I have become aware that we can't earn on HubPages without AdSense. This is a grim realization for me.I have 29 featured hubs that are generally considered to be of reasonable quality. I applied for an AdSense account over a year ago, and since then I've had nothing. When I...

While I link my Adsense account, it directs me to Google, which then asks if I want to accept the association, I say yes, then it directs me back to Hubpages, but it just loads a blank page, nothing comes up.

Well, that’s nice, very nice. I haven’t got a clue of what I did wrong. And after filling in the online appeal form they told me they had reviewed my account information, taken my feedback into account, but still had concluded that my AdSense account has posed a significant risk. And I have no...
