I was thinking about this for sometime. Went through some details on this matter and found out that HP program is mainly concentrated on Impressions whereas Adsense is all about clicks. It's not that I want to become a Millionaire just by writing, I thought to ask the "Seniors" feedback on this matter. Please be kind enough to discuss anything related to this matter. Since you will be sharing your opinions related with present earnings, I think this would be helpful for many hubbers - specially for new ones like me
In general, most hubbers do better with HPads, but there are lots of exceptions. The only way to know is to turn off HPads, leaving Adsense as the only ad provider, and see what happens in your particular case. Just be sure to allow enough time to be sure; a few days won't tell you much. Leave it alone for at least several weeks.
Thanks for the reply wilderness! I was thinking the same. But I was kinda hoping for some experience speaking. like what is your choice? What do you personally prefer and have implemented in your hubs. I know that it depends from each hub to hub, but if you can mention what you think the best and why, that would be more helpful for us all. And thanks again for the reply
First, you can only use HPads for either all or none of your hubs, not make a choice for each individual hub.
Personally, I have experimented several times and have always earned at least double with HPads. It is far superior than adsense for the topics and type of hubs I write.
Thanks wilderness. That's very useful information. This is why I love this community and hoping to have a great journey along. So now 2 votes for HP and lets see what others says.
And bdw, I think your hubs must be getting huge impressions right? that must have led to choosing HP the best?
I chose HPads as superior over adsense because it produces more income.
Why does it do that? Don't know - maybe my readers are just literate enough to slog through my junk (lots of pictures!) but not enough to read an ad?
thanks again for your response wilderness. And Yah, I agree with you with that point. It's hard to believe that our hub visitors might actually 'click' on an ad just like that. Even myself, non of those ads makes me interested enough to click on it. Again a plus point for the HP's here. Having more impressions is easier than converting them into clicks!
I don't know if it has to do with the fact that I have the HP Ad Program ON but I earn way more with the HP Ad Program than I do with Google AdSense. Actually hardly earn anything these days with AdSense for this site whereas I do earn every day with HP Ad Program even though it's less than a dollar a day...
Also, if you can earn money from impressions that's better than relying on someone to click on an ad for you to earn. No one clicks you still earn. So, I prefer that. Of course you can have both options active at the same time... which I do and lots of other hubbers I am sure...so more chances to earn.
thanks alot for the complete answer given lovebuglena! This really concludes the question which kept me thinking. HP seems like better than adsense and leaving both options open seems like much better. But if we concern the PPC values, how are they compared between these two programs? Does HP pays a higher value than adsense even with that?
HP Ad Program is about CPM not CPC (aka PPC) so you can't really compare the HP Ad Program to AdSense...
Also having HP Ad Program ON I've heard that you have less Google ads on your hubs because ads from other platforms/networks take their place...
I too understand that these two are totally different from each other. Took sometime for me to understand this. Now I realize that, HP is better if you have better site visit and less conversion rate. At the same time, if our readers are likely to click on an ad (if we can make them desperate enough with the information given in hub) Adsense will be the better choice!
Thanks again for your reply lovebuglena! And yes, when HP is on, there will be only ONE adsense ad at the bottom right side of the page..
The best one is the one that makes the most money. I tried both and for me it was HP. That is the sum total of my analysis

Please share your practical experience, the effects of this program on your earnings, keeping in mind about Hubpages TOS as well as Google adsense TOS.Thanks!

Currently I'm signed up with Google Adsense and I've been debating whether I should sign up for the Hubpages Earning Program because I'm hesitant to give out my tax information. Or should I worry about this only after I have a decent amount of traffic coming to my hubs?
