Why is the revenue split from Adsense set at 60%-40%?
The revenue generated from Adsense is split between the hubber and HubPages at the ratio of 60:40.
That's just a decision that HubPages made. HubPages earns 40% of the money to keep the website online and to pay its employees. The rest is profit.
Hubpages needs money to maintain their awesome service. It would be unfair if you got all the money while they did a lot of the work.
If it was less than 60% you might think you were getting ripped off,
I think most people see this figure as being better off with that split. If it was the other way round I think people would take their hard earned written content elsewhere.

My earnings page only credits about 47% of my views for all time. I divided the number of views that Hub pages counts by the number that show up on my accounts page. I thought it was 60%. Is there somewhere else where the views are being counted?

Hi,Can someone clarify if the revenue from ALL individual adsense blocks on the page are shared, or whether one block is dedicated to HP and the two others to the author. How is the income from a page distributed?
