    I am still a newbie here in HubPages and I'm still on my way to publishing at least five hubs. So far, I need two more hubs to graduate from boot camp. I'm just wondering if it's already okay for me to activate the HP Ad Program right after I get 5 of my hubs featured and published? Any suggestions, tips?

    Thanks in advance. ^^

      As long as you have your Google AdSense account set up then you can activate the Ad program. Here is a link that may help. http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/hubp … ide7958561

      Activate your payment program at the earliest opportunity.

      You may have been reading the theory that if you have a blog, you shouldn't start advertising until you have a good readership.  That doesn't apply here, because even if YOU don't activate the ad program, HubPages will still show ads.   The only difference is that you won't benefit!

      The theory doesn't really apply on HubPages anyway.  You're not trying to build a "loyal readership" here - it won't work.  Non-members can't sign up to follow your Hubs and there's no way for you to build an email list because you can't tell who your readers are.  On HubPages, you make money by attracting large numbers of readers from the search engines, who will probably visit only once.  You need to show them ALL ads!

        Interesting that HP does not show the 250x250 Ad top right in text area, for all news hubs until after total views exceeds 100. Same applies for old hubs. The reason stated from HP staff replies is to boost inital traffic. It would appear to follow the same principle of getting some initial love from Google. I can't see how this provides any benefit in the long term. I think it is more a test for whether reducing ads above the fold increases ranking (this ad is an endangered species for the entire site). If the ads are re-installed after 100 days the bot will revisit after a day or so and re-rank the page anyway. What do you think about this tactic?

          I can't see how it would make any difference to Google, as you say.

    hubpages says that if you don´t have Adsense account yet then it is best to have 10 featured hubs before applying for Adsense.

      I already have AdSense account. I've created it like two years ago (I really can't recall exactly) but I didn't really use it just until recently.

      As far as I know, the earnings from AS greatly relies on cost-per-click and cost-per-impression. So I was wondering if I only have four to five hubs published, will that be enough to see a progress in my AS earnings? I guess it really depends on the traffic.

    I don't know why you would not want any small earning you could get.  Even a little money is better than no money.

    As I experienced that, HP ad program does not start until you have an active Google Adsense account. And to have that you must have at least 10 hubs published. If you already have adsense account, you can start it right away by integrating it with HP's ad program.

      If you already have Adsense account details, you can activate the same at the earliest opportunity.  You don't have to wait for the opportunity start earning.

        Thank you for the advice. After thinking about it, I decided to integrate my AdSense (via the HP Ad Program) last night and let's just see how this goes. ^^

          If you already have the Ad Sense account you MUST have it active with HubPages As soon as possible, any cents that you get in your boot camp is an extra money, when you learn to do high quality stellar hubs then you will get more traffic and even more revenue, keep the hard work and you will see great  rewards in no time.
          Also I recommend you to interact with the community that will increase your popularity inside the HP community and will enhance your returning traffic even more.
