Hello! Originally I joined HP for the sake of having more writing practice, making money out of it wasn't really my intention. But watching the discussions within the community I feel inclined to weigh my options more thoroughly.
And here's the question that might become the dealbreaker for me: are there any region-specific drawbacks and restrictions about setting up the payment system? Have you personally experienced any trouble with it because of your place of residence? I'm Russian, so any input from Eastern European hubbers will be particularly appreciated.
You need an Adsense account to earn from Hub Pages Earnings Program. Hub pages pays through Pay Pal only.
Might want to look into how much you'll make off of adsense before throwing yourself into it though...I'm not going to speak for everyone on hubpages, but I get a pretty decent amount of views, reach payout on a monthly basis, and still have yet to reach payout from adsense. Seriously, my balance is less than $30, to put it one way. Not trying to bring you down, just wanted to let you know...
However, you can't sign up for the HP Earnings Program until you get approved for Adsense.
Yes, the thought that it might not even be worth the trouble in the long run is making me hesitate, especially since my chances of hitting the jackpot seem pretty low. Thanks for offering your perspective! It's much better for me to stay realsitic than end up disappointed.
I think Angel is making the mistake of thinking that Adsense is a major source of income. It's not. It's just a prequisite for joining the HP Earnings Program, which is where the income comes from.
That's interesting. Do they take your success rate on Adsense into account when you sign up for other programs, if you don't mind answering?
I'm not from Eastern Europe so can't speak from personal experience.
At any rate, the main thing about earnings is that you need to have a PayPal account to get paid and need an Adsense account to activate the HP Ad Program. So, much is dependent on whether you can get a PayPal account where you're from and how Google Adsense deals with publishers from your country.

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...

A few days ago, I noticed that a lot of people were talking about changing from HP Ad Program to Google AdSense. I had tried that a few years ago, but switched back pretty quickly because I earned better with HP....

Hi Fellow Hubbers!I have done a bit of (unscientific) averaging of AdSense income on HubPages.com, and calculated an earnings rule for Hubs:On average, any given hub will earn about $10.00 per year.My page showing my...

I really do miss the old success stories.. they were the ones that gave us all hope. Even after 6 years of being here at hubpages it is all a mystery to me. I am still loyal to only Adsense and didn't opt for hubpages...
