I have two sites here at HP. As of this moment, there is only one hub left on my second site because all of the others have been moved to niche sites.
This site shows no earnings because none of the articles have Amazon products and I switched to Adsense, so page view income doesn't show either.
Recently I learned that if the earnings balance does not change over a 6 month period, a site can be terminated.
I don't want to give up the Adsense because it is earning so well, and the types of articles I am writing there are not conducive to creating Amazon income.
The obvious answer is to write some hubs that have ads on them, but I can't seem to figure out how to do that due to the nature of my writing.
I could briefly go back to the HP ad program, but doing that will cost me money.
What do you think I should do?
I don't think that's accurate about an account getting terminated if the balance doesn't change. I've never heard that before, and I just logged into an old account of mine to check it out. There is no content on it, and it hasn't earned a penny in years. But it's still there. I can publish a Hub on it tonight if I want to.
What is true is you forfeit your earnings if there is no change to your balance on the account for six months. That shouldn't impact your current earning strategy, though, since you are being paid by Google.
I'm going by memory and a brief glance at the TOU. I'd check with HP staff for some clarity if you are concerned.
It's a good point and Eric is absolutely right. Yes, you will forfeit your earnings but if there's nothing there, that's not a worry, is it?
However, to be on the safe side - could you take a good look at those Hubs and see if there's a way to add just one Amazon product link to two or three of the best performing Hubs? You only need to earn a few cents to be safe.
That's a good idea, but I would have to add them to hubs that already are sitting on niche sites, which means they might be removed!
I probably will just have to add a few hubs that have Amazon ads, but what I write about mostly is not conducive to doing that.
If you're able to identify a really good product, and you add a link rather than a capsule, there's also a chance they will be allowed. What have you got to lose by trying?
I already checked with them and the answer I got seems to indicate I am correct. I do have some earnings sitting on that account that I wouldn't want to lose, though. Would sure like some clarification on this.
I think you've got your clarification. If you don't earn anything on that account, you'll forfeit the earnings (and it's an account by the way, not a site. You don't have a site on HubPages).
The fact that Eric has just tested his dormant account proves that the account won't get closed down, if you had any doubt about that.
II am a little confused by AdSense. I get paid for views on HubPages, but I have noticed a few cents every day in my AdSense account (more if someone clicked on an ad). Why am I being paid by both HP and Ad Sense?.
Maybe just take the one over to your other page and delete the other account? Probably just easier to run on the one page no? Especially if you don't think it's viable to write on it.
Probably not a good idea, because if those Hubs have been published for some time they will already have a Google ranking, which they'll lose completely if she moves them.
Does the Adsense pay you only if your article was read through Google search or even if someone reads your article through hubpages or other social apps (like a link in what's app etc etc)

Will they still be allowed to continue writing for the niche sites or will this site be diluted as our best writers and their work leave for a better deal?

Being new I'm not sure I totally understand the way to generate income here in HP. Am I to understand that one must have an Adsense account to earn income? I've applied for an Adsense account some time ago but have not heard anything from them. Does this mean no matter how good my hubs are and how...

Hi everyone. I've been putting some work in writing quality articles the last few months, all my articles are approved as featured but earnings are still pretty low. I have earned a total of $1+ in two months, and with that speed it will take years to reach checkout. I have both Hubpages and...

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 read on another thread that we must add the niche sites to our AdSense account. I don't know anything about this and don't know how to do it. Could someone please give step-by-step directions on how to get this accomplished? I don't remember hearing about this when the niche sites started....

I implemented Adsense over seven days ago, and it seems that based on my page views so far, there'd be at least one ad click. But every time I check "earnings," for every day listed it says $0.00. Sometimes under the "Yesterday" header it says "Pending," but then next...
