Switched to AdSense only but no earnings

    So I decided to turn off the ad program yesterday but I saw no earnings from AdSense whereas I'd always earn quite a bit daily when the ad program was turned on.

    So what's the problem, I'm pretty sure I did everything right. Should I wait another day or just opt back into the ad program?

      Have you checked your list of sites on Adsense? Were you earning tiny bits of money there previously to switching (there is usually some Adsense earnings even when only using HP ad prog)?

      If you can't see any of the HP sites, then add them manually.

      I'll give it at least a week and see how it goes. It's a good way for you to experiment.

      Adsense earnings are not posted on the HP site. Go to the home page of Adsense where you not only will find daily updates, but also updates as the day goes along.

    I added the sites in the my sites section and I have earned in the past though it was mostly pennies.

      Okay, well you should see some movement in the next 24 hours. If not, I'd panic and switch back big_smile

    Also don't forget that the Ad Program pays you based on views but adsense only on clicks so if no-one clicked on any ads then you won't have any earnings.

      But you can still earn a couple of pennies per 1000 page views (or is it impressions?) on Adsense.

    I suppose you're correct and if clicks play such a huge role then it really is a gamble whereas the ad program is fairly consistent.

      I'm based in the UK and the pound is very weak against the dollar. Therefore, being paid in dollars is more advantageous at the moment.

      Although I have experimented with changing to Adsense, I find earnings better with the HP ad program. It will vary, depending upon your niche, and is a case of trial and error to see which works best for your articles.

      Good luck!

    With adsense you see higher  sometimes, but less consistent earnings. In my case it is more or less the same as hubpages if I average over 2-3 months.
