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.
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.
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.
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.

Does the Hubpages Ad Program effect Google Ads earnings?My Google earnings seem to have gone down significantly since adding the Hubpages ad program.

Feeling slightly apprehensive and even a little guilty for having done so! Do HubPages earn a share of my Adsense earnings and what would the effect be if everyone switched to Adsense?

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. Recently though, since my earnings have dropped so much, I figured I didn't have much...

Why Don't I make more than pennies with Google Adsense?I've noticed recently that I am scraping in bare minimum earnings with my Hubs, and I was wondering what some other users here on HubPages were doing to compensate for low earnings...

Are ad settings totally controlled by HubPages or do the settings in my Adsense account have a bearing on what will be displayed? If so, is it a good idea to select categories relevant to a niche site?

I just switched off Hubpages ad program. I am anxious to see what effect it has on my adsense impressions and earnings.
