    I was just now approved for my Google AdSense account after my 10th featured hub but I'm very confused about payment. Until now they would not approve me because of insufficient content, however, the hubs I have written have already garnered over 1600 views. Does anyone know if I am going to receive backpay for the views and traffic I have gotten for my previous hubs? I really would like to be paid for the work I've done so far, and I can't find the answer anywhere. Thanks!

      Hi Hilary,

      AdSense earnings begin from the time you are approved. Unfortunately, AdSense does not offer back pay for traffic that occurred before your approval.

          LOL, it would certainly be nice for authors (and HP) if they did!

      Unfortunately, you will only earn ad revenue starting from the point when your Adsense account is approved and you've entered your Adsense ID number in your HP account. There aren't any retroactive earnings.

    Ah man! So I won't even get paid for having Amazon ads? Amazon was activated but the whole earnings page wasn't because of Google AdSense. I think I'm just confusing myself...

      It can be a bit confusing, but Amazon and AdSense are separate, so you'll keep your Amazon earnings, even if you made them before you had AdSense.

    What they told was true. You get paid only when you got your adsense activated. smile 

    And just to share if you haven't know yet. If I'm correct, we only earn per click on adsense. Say for example you gained 1,000 views, and only 10 person clicked an advertisement, you will earn from that 10 person how much that clicked ad costs. If P.01 per ad, it will be P0.10 smile

      That would not be correct: Adsense puts both click and impression type ads on our hubs.

      Watching the Adsense numbers, you can see that income slowly grows without any clicks.  As an example, I earn something each week from Adsense, but see more weeks without a click than weeks with.

          I think $8 would be on the high side; most report something in the 2-5 dollar range.  And of course if you use HPads as well, Adsense income decreases dramatically.

          If you get $8 CPM from adsense you can write a book about it and make a second fortune.

            The CPM on AdSense reflects the winning advertiser's bid for your targeted keywords on the AdWords program.

              Indeed, but I would not suggest that the average hubber expect to get $8.
