Should I activate Adsense and HP ad program at the same time?

    spahi992posted 4 years ago

    I have connected Adsense to my account, and have over 200 views (I know that it's not much) but in my Adsense account, I have made $0. If it was at least $0.2 then fine, but 0 is too much,.
    Do you have any idea?

      You can't run both programs at the same time, you much choose between Adsense or the HP ad program.

      Personally I prefer the HP ad program since it provides a more consistent stream of income for me.  My Adsense results have always been hit or miss from month to month. 

      You may want to do some testing to see which program works out best for you though.

        You can have the HP Program and AdSense runnning at the same time. The only thing is that if you run the HP Program you will have less Google ads.

      You should definitely join the HP Ad Program because there you earn every single day as you don't need ad clicks to earn with it. It's just based on ad impressions. So the higher the traffic and the higher the CPM the more you can potentially earn.

    I run the HP program and Adsense.  For what I can see, HP pays for views on your articles and Adsense pays for views on your homepage and your questions.  I do get views that are titled "HP" and ones under my subdomain.  When matched up with my question views, I believe that this is what is occurring.  Every couple of days I get a cent from Adsense for something relating to my profile.

    Like Skear said, you can't run both programs at the same time. It's one or the other.

    I have experimented with both extensively, and find i do so much better with Adsense.

      oooops both of mine say active, in my account , should I deactivate one ?

        skearposted 4 years agoin reply to this

        You have to have an active Adsense account in order to run the HP Ads program.  Like Availiasvision pointed out there are some instances where Adsense ads are shown as a backup for the HP Ads program but when the HP Ad program is enabled the bulk of the Ads are served through it and not Adsense.

        This link explains how they integrate a bit better.

    actually I just found the answer to my own question, in the hp add program you have more hp ads than ad sense ads, so you have both actually  so its all good smile

    starme77posted 4 years ago

    well, clicks are important, so if your not getting clicks your not making much , you can make some because of impressions , but clicks are the most important with ad sense when it comes to making money

    I would definitely activate both. The HP ad program is pretty solid.

    Is this good.
    I connected my Adsense account to HP,
    I've applied for the HP ad program and got approved
    I'm using my own Amazon affiliate code that I had from before, didn't have to open a new one (it's under "External Affiliate Settings" and I hope that means that the next time I open my Amazon Associates account I'll see some $$).
    I don't have an eBay affiliate code and don't plan on getting one.
