    If you apply for adsense through hubpages, that would be a hosted account. In order to use that adsense id on your blog, you need to submit that blog to google for verification. Once that is done, you will be able to use your adsense id on both sites. I think there would be separate calculations for earnings from both sites but I am not sure. I myself am using adsense on hubpages only.
    And to be eligible to apply for adsense through hubpages, you need to write at least 10 quality hubs. I hope this helps to some extent if not all...

        There are two options. First, you got your Adsense Id though HP. In that case, you need to submit you blog URL to Google for verification. Once that first URL is accepted, you can link that id to as my sites as you can provided that they do not violate Google policies. Second, you already have an Adsense id. In that case, you can link that id to your blog or any other site.

      As mentioned, your Adsense account is yours.  When you use it in other sites you get 100% of your income. Hubpages is not even involved unless the ad is *on* Hubpages.

        I'll add that Hubpages uses a rotating script that shows their own Adsense account on 40% of the impressions and Your Adsense account on 60% of impressions.  On your own blog, your Adsense account is shown on 100% of impressions.

          Absolutely positive.

      When people click on ads on your blog you are the only one that gets the revenue from the clicks. It is not shared with anyone. On HubPages revenue from ads is shared with HubPages. Your AdSense code runs 60% of the time and HubPages AdSense code runs 40% of the time. There really is no way of knowing exactly when it's your AdSense and when it is HubPages' though.

        I use the Hubpages id for my website and blog. I have to say, I make more (or so it seems) with the Hubpages. "clicks."

        The basic misunderstanding seems to be this:

        Your income for that Adsense account is not split between you and hubpages.

        Hubpages only shows your adsense ID 60% of the time, you get 100% of the income for that time.

        They show *their* Adsense ID on your hubs the other 40% of the time.

        Your Adsense ID is always 100% yours and the income from it is always100% yours.

        Interesting psycheskinner. So if I get an influx of viewers during a time when my ads are all HP ads, I'm not making anything. But perhaps neither HP add nor my ads ever appear for a "block" of time. Is it constantly changing? When one person views a page the ads might be mine, and a moment later another person views the same page and they're HP's?

          ln all of the tests I've done, the code rotation has been random.

          Try yourself.

          Refresh a hub 20 times and each time check the source code to see whether it's your adsense code or HP's being displayed.

          Hmmm. I wonder if they get the highest traffic time of day and we get the middle of the night. One can only wonder.

        I have a successful poetry and writing blog and 100% of my adsense is all mine. I can add any other affiliates I wish, and I get earnings from them. Hub Pages has a readership of 38 Million a month i think. My blog doesn't have that

        So I am happy to stay with Hub Pages. And happy to earn my bit here, also. smile

            We have explained that.


            Hubpages is not inside your adsense.  They get nothing for any and all impressions made to an ad with your adsense code -- on or off hubpages.

            You seem to be misunderstanding this whole this. I posted this answer up top but you must have missed it. Here it is again.

            "Yes you can have only one ID but you only share income on third party sites or revenue sharing sites like HP. Reason being is that the ads running on HP are generated using HP's Adsense ID, not yours, but in order to pay you,  you must  have Adsense account as the Adsense policy states.

            The ads generated on your blogs or own website are generated from your own ID so no sharing there. Your Adsense account will only reflect income from your own websites and blogs not revenue sharing sites because Adsense is not responsible for paying you for ads running here. It is Hubpages who decides how much ad income to share with you."

            In addition to that, Hubpages only pay for impressions. When someone clicks your ads on HP you get paid 100% through your adsense account.

        I think you are more likely to earn more money on HubPages than on the blog because HubPages has the earnings program that is just based on ad impressions so you earn even if people never click on the ads. With a blog most of the earnings come from clicks only.

        What I can safely say is that Hubs really do earn income for established writers here over time. Writing Hubs means consistently writing good quality pieces that are worth finding in search engines, and which have an audience, thus a future. I focus on good quality writing as much as possible and engaging with other hubbers. I also love the advise that writers with experience can pass on here. And the forums are good.

        There is no limit to how many affiliates or ad systems a blog can have, since in my case, I own my own domain for my blog. Owning your own domain gets you more entitlements when it comes to income. But this doesn't suit all writers, so some keep it all on their Hubs account.

        While some affiliates advise blog or website owners to read the fine print on how many ads may appear, most of them are okay. But Hub Pages has at least 4 ways to earn from hubs plus the referral system that refers new writers to join up at Hub Pages. My blog reads are currently higher than the reads on my hubs. But this varies all the times. New hubs I write bring up traffic here. All round, Hub Pages has a great name with writers and is well respected.

        As someone using several systems, I am happy with my earnings. The trick is to always write but don't let the multiple incomes conflict with each other.
