Adsense v. Earning Program

    I have been on the HP earning program since I was approved for adsense. I get around .65 cents a day. I was thinking about switching to adsense and see how well that goes.
    Has anyone had any experience going from the ad program to adsense? Did you make more or less?

      I've tried it for 2 months and I made a lot less with Adsense. And by lot I do mean lot.

      You can turn the Earnings program on and off any time you like - you won't lose access to it.  So the best thing is to try it out.   Turn off the Earnings Program, wait a month and see how your earnings compare - then decide whether to switch it back on again.

      I always recommend the HP earning program. I learn many forums here that HP program is much better than adsense along.

      So far, I am happy with HP earning program.

    Yeah, even after HP had a CPM drop, I tried using adsense only for a week or two and it did much worse.  I think the average user will have a better experience with the ad program, but someone with a high traffic topic with extremely well targeted keywords could stand to do better with Adsense.

    I have been on Adsense since 2009, I have only gotten up t0 $34.   I am not sure what I am doing wrong, but on the other hand I am sticking to it, because maybe one day I will reach the $100 min for them to cut me a send it to my paypal account.  Now my nephew does great on it.  I have had success with the HP program.   I do not recommend Adsense to anyone unless you constantly have traffic going to products.

    Can anyone tell me how many hubs i should post in order to start an earning program like Google adsense ?

    1. Marisa Wright profile image95
      Marisa Wrightposted 4 years ago in reply to this

      Do you already have an Adsense account?  If so, start using it immediately.

      If you don't already have an Adsense account, then wait until you've posted 20 or 30 Hubs before you apply.   If you live in India, Pakistan, anywhere in Asia and some parts of Africa, you will automatically have to establish a six months' record before you can apply.

        @Marisa, is it possible to have both the programs work together?

  5. Monisa Ahmed profile image71
    Monisa Ahmedposted 4 years ago

    Yup Marisa, i already have an Adsense account, but the problem is when I start to access it giving the url , i get a notification in my mail that I lack contents.....I thought it is because I do not have that many hubs to be approved. Now you are saying that I have to wait until my hubs reaches 20 to 30 for my account to open?

      If you already have an approved Adsense account (which you got on another site) then you should be able to use it here by pasting your ID into the appropriate place.

    @Abbyfitz: how many Hubs have you made?

    1. Abbyfitz profile image82

      I have 48 hubs

    I just connected my Adsense to my HP account here. It was all done automatically, I didn't even have to copy-paste my publisher ID from Adsense. Just connected my Gmail account (I do have one) and it immediately recognized my Publisher ID. Let us know if you have any problems, should work easy. This case scenario is if you are already registered with Adsense.

    @Abbyfitz: 0.65 cents look very little to me for 48 hubs !!!

    1. WriteAngled profile image91
      WriteAngledposted 4 years ago in reply to this

      Well I have just over 20 hubs and I am lucky to hit 20 cents per day. It is often far less than that.

  11. Abbyfitz profile image82

    .65 cents a day? Well, I don't know what to tell you, but thanks a lot.

    billdales18posted 4 years ago

    Can't you also use both programs?
    @WriteAngled so if you would have 200 hubs you would earn 2 dollars a day theoretically speaking, and 1000 hubs 10 dollars a day, but lots of work there smile

    1. WriteAngled profile image91
      WriteAngledposted 4 years ago in reply to this

      That level of time investment is not worth my while.

      An average hub takes me 6-12 hours to research and write.

      yes. It says something about it in the help section. Unless i am misunderstanding. I have both going on mine. you just have six ads on a hub instead of three

      Here's what the learning center says:
      " How Does the Ad Program Work?

      In the Google AdSense-only arrangement, each Hub may display three ad units and two link units. If you opt in to the Ad Program, you will have a total of six ads:

      One ad unit served through your AdSense account (AdSense pays you)
      Five additional ad units, some of which come from Google and some of which come from other premium ad partners (HubPages pays you)"

    I'm using hub pages earning program.I have 230+ hubs and my average ad program earning nearly 1$ and eBay earning of 1$ per day . I prefer hubpages earning than the adsense . In Jan 2013 my total earning from adsense is nearly 8$ per month so i shifted to earning program...

    I have switched back and forth a few times and have seen a dollar or two difference.
    I went back to AdSense because they pay about a week earlier than HP (21st vs 28th) and because I can't direct deposit with HP Ads and I can with Adsense.
    The 7 days extra plus having to move money from PayPal to a bank would put me getting paid on the 22nd or 23rd from Adsense as opposed to sometimes the beginning of the next month before the money hits the bank with HP Ads.
    If HP Ads paid out on the 21st (or even the 22nd-23rd) and had direct deposit I'd use them.

      Marisa Wrightposted 4 years ago in reply to this

      But surely, once you'd got over the pain of the first month's delay, you'd be in a regular sequence after that?

      If the difference between Adsense and the HP Earnings program isn't large, then it's up to you - but personally I wouldn't be sacrificing extra pay just because I have to wait one extra week.

      1. sabrebIade profile image81
        sabrebIadeposted 4 years ago in reply to this

        Yeah I only saw a couple of dollars difference in the two programs.
        If it were 10 or more...I'd consider changing permanently.

    Direct deposit is certainly a consideration.  But Paypal is just a middleman.  Once deposited to paypal, the funds can be quickly transferred to your bank account.  What's a few days.  I'm sure you have a credit card to use in case of emergency.  That's what credit cards are for.

    1. sabrebIade profile image81
      sabrebIadeposted 4 years ago in reply to this

      Nope.
      Sure don't.

  16. yupperclub profile image78
    yupperclubposted 4 years ago

    Why not?  Start with a Mastercard...that's a beginner's card.  Learn to start using it, paying it (at LEAST the minimum payment each month) and watching your line of credit.  That's how they determine creditworthiness.  After Mastercard, shoot for a Visa.  After Visa, Discover card.  Store cards only for emergency, basically, but keep them a little active or they will close your line.  Just learn to balance your own budget and use credit wisely.

      Well 25...30 years ago when I got my first card I did that.
      Swore off credit cards about 10...20 years ago.

    I have a paypal account in hubpages , isn't that enough for my earning program? what else should I do in order to make money?

    1. Marisa Wright profile image95
      Marisa Wrightposted 4 years ago in reply to this

      Yes it is.

  18. yupperclub profile image78
    yupperclubposted 4 years ago

    Paypal should be sufficient if you upgrade to a premier account.  Link a credit card and a bank account.  You may need to upgrade.  It's free.

    Before the Earning Program, I already have my adsense but it earns really slow, after the earning program my adsense earns even slower. I already received payment twice from the earning program but never from adsense, I've been with adsense even before hubpages but I still can't find the key to improve my earnings from it...

    It took 3  years for me to hit pay out with Adsense.

    HP program is much, much better!

    The HP earning program is working very well for me and much better than adsense, one day one of my hub got more than 2000 views and I made 2,70$ that day and 1,50$ the following day....average 40c per day...I have 56 hubs and facebook helps to get traffic...
