    I've seen a lot of talk about Hubpages versus Bubblews lately. One thing I have NOT seen is how much money on your Google Adsense account. If you monetized your site properly with Hubpages, then you'll be making money through Google as well.
    To check that account, go to
    Once there, log in to your account. On the far right, click the view payments tab. Then on the far left, click on the payment history tab.
    I finally reached their $100 threshold and should be getting paid at the end of the month.

      You've been on the site for three years, and only just now hit $100:  most people aren't going to have your patience.

        I agree it's ridiculous. These big companies bank on the work of us "little people." I'm hoping that as my readership grows, so will the money.

          I'm having trouble understanding why you titled this thread "You're making more money through Hubpages than you realize".

          I realize exactly how much money I am making. I thought you had discovered something new.

          Are you thinking the other 40% of your impressions or Adsense's share of the total is somehow adding up to a big pile of money?  Content writing is not a big ticket activity.

      Adsense earnings through HP is relatively small compared to earnings via Adsense for a blog.  I have had one payout on Google in a very, very long time, lol.  I do believe I am creeping towards another, but when I check it is earnings from my blog and Youtube that tops what is there from HP.

    I also find Adsense a bit hit and miss and low paying. But as a small passive bit of income for hub pages I suppose it makes some sense. For my blog though, I would rather use the space to keep the visitors on my page than earn just $1 for a click away from my site.

      Why?  Outside of the obvious pride of being a writer that can engage people, what good does it do to keep someone on your page vs clicking away through an adsense ad?

    Adsense earnings from hubpages is practically nothing.

      That "practically nothing" paid for my Christmas shopping quite easily, even though I wrote all of five new hubs last year.

      Shadow: that's the thing: some of us are seeking platforms that let is build up passive income. Whether it's a little or a lot, if you can establish income sources that keep paying you every month while you're working on new stuff, over time, you'll be earning more and more for the same amount of daily effort.

      Passive income isn't an easy approach to earning a living online. It doesn't work for everybody, it doesn't work for some kinds of content (stuff that needs to be updated regularly to stay relevant, e.g.), and it doesn't work on every platform. But the passive income model frees creative people to focus on making stuff, with an ever-expanding portfolio of old stuff that's earning them something each month.

    I'll be on HP three years in the Spring and last I checked, I was still nowhere near the payout amount on Adsense. (mind you, I only check my AdSense balance once every month or so because it's depressing... haha)!!

    I finally wised up and signed up for the HP Ads program towards the end of last year and I'm pleased with the progress I've made with that so far. I should've done it much sooner, but apparently I'm a doofus.

    Congratulations, but Bubblews pays a penny per view and I think that's still more than hub pages.
