    What happens if you deactivate the Hub Page Ad Program?

    Will I be able to get it back? I am not getting any clicks on Google.

    I think you can deactivated and activate the hub ad when you want but I have not tried it. I have not received any google or any other ad clicks that I wonder if its active at all. I even heard that some sites pay writers per view not per ad click. However my primary aim of writing on hubpages is to send my messages across to as many people as possible.

    Yes you should be able to get it back,if you deactivate it. What you do is simply opt out and then if later you decide to use HP AD again then just Opt back in.

    Can't think why you would want to Opt out though, the AD prog is based on CPM and therefore the more people that view your hubs the quicker you start to earn some cents/dollars.

    Clicks on Google depends on what kind of traffic you are getting on your hubs. And also if you have registered for Google.

    Send me an email if you need help to set things up.

    If you de-activate you will only loose the commercial section on your pages; with that your ability to make money.  It is absolutely about your wish.  I have all mine de-activated for personal reasons and my Hubs are not for making money - I have a purpose to fulfil.

    You still get hits, listings, et all; nothing changed there.

    Yes, at any time you can re-activate them again and get back on track with making money.

    I've heard many people claim to have a drop in Adsense when turning on the HP ad program.

    I was given the impression by another hubber that the HP ad program, once shut off, will deactivate at the end of the month, but I am not sure if this is true.

    I am still experimenting with Hubpages but I have had success with my own sites in the past so I will probably leave their ad program on for a month and see how it goes before deciding to shut it off, but the going conclusion seems to be that the HP ads don't target keywords as well as Adsense and take away from your Adsense earnings.

    Zubair above me has a great point. I think if the majority of your traffic is being generated within Hubpages itself then you should use their ad program to make money off views, but if you are trying to build traffic by ranking in search results then you might be better off allowing Adsense to run it's course alone.

    I did not even know you could de-activate the commercials. I am not making money from those commercials that appear on my pages because I have not even signed up, even though it has been a few months. How can you deactivate those ads? I would love to deactivate them if possible
