Instead of the HP ads showing your share of adsense ads would show up instead. Hmm I think that's going to happen immediately. You can switch back the very next day as far as I know. I've switched back within 3 days.
Well, I tried it twice and both the times I got around 90% less with adsense. However, I just changed to adsense now as I'm almost at payment there. Already crossed the threshold here, so may as well receive my first adsense cheque )
There were many with low traffic, Deleted them all. The ones that receive good traffic are retained. They are now doing even better. Not sure if it's because I got rid of the diversity and poor performers. But, traffic has improved.
The change is instant, as far as I'm aware. From what I've seen on the forums, most people find they do better with HP Ads. As you know, PPC is only going to be better than PPV if you're getting a reasonable amount per click - and Adsense rates aren't as high as they used to be.
I have opted out three times now, for periods from a few days to a month.
Each time was a disaster as far as income goes; every time it fell by 3/4 or so.
So, for me, it is not a wise choice and not one I will repeat unless HPads begins to have extremely low CPM's. As in 50 cents, maybe. Others will have a different experience, though, and everyone should make a decent effort to find out which is best for them.
I think it's better to stick with the Ad Program because you earn based on CPM so no one needs to click on ads for you to earn. As long as you get traffic to your hubs you will always earn something every day with the Ad Program. If you opt out of it you may see days with no earnings at all.
I noticed that CPMs are really low so I decided to just start a test where I would just be running AdSense ads only and it's only day one, only one data point, but so far I'm already out-earning my HubAds...
In the past I relied solely on Adsense to earn income from Hubpages, however this year I was able to finally open a PayPal account, so I signed up for the Hubpages Ad program. As expected, I saw a drop in my Adsense...
