Is Google Adsense or the HubPages Ad Program better for making money?
What is the verdict from long time Hubbers?
Well, I am not an old timer as of yet, within the Hubpages community. But what I can tell you from my experience, in terms of making money, is that my earnings appear to be much larger with the Hubpages AD program, than with Goodle Adsense. However this may all balance out, as the new subdomain that we were switched to takes a foothold. Hope my feedback helps you out with the question.
Like Jlbowden, I'm new here, but what I've found is that the Hubpages Ad program is doing pretty great in terms of revenue because it's based on your page visits; if you build up enough hubs and get them ranking well in search engines it will go up a ton. Adsense can be great but only if people are clicking on the ads but the problem with this is that people are 'wisening' up between what's information and what's ads.
So, I'd say the Hubpages Ad platform for the long run if you can get a ton of traffic but Adsense is still great for random bursts.
If that helps
I highly suggest you experiment with both of the ads program separately. Some people have better result with Adsense, some prefer Hubpages ads program. Give a try for each ads for a week or two and you'll know what program is best for you.
In my case, I have higher earning with Google Adsense.
Thanks Jlbowden and others for responding. I am hoping some long time Hubbers will also respond, so I can get an idea if things were better before the Hubpages Ad Program. One thing to keep in mind is that when you are running the Hubpages Ad Program, there are fewer Google Adsense ads on your hubs, so fewer opps to make money through them. I think it's 66% fewer Adsense ads.
I did not have much luck with Adsense. The Hubpages Ad Program has been a nice steady earner at a fraction of a penny at a time, but I wonder if I went back to full Adsense if I'd do better in the long run?
It's really tough to impossible to answer this question - there are too many factors involved.
I'm using both - simply because adsense is so "hit and miss," I like making a little every day - and all of a sudden I haven't made anything from adsense in several days.
I still sometimes will get a seven dollar adsense day. . . .after not making a single cent for a week. Some people make good money every day from adsense. . . .it's sort of a game that you have to figure out yourself, really.
I have been here around 5 months now, and have found that I make more money with HP ads compared with Adsense. HP ads pay for the amount of visits to your hub, whereas Adsense is based on the amount of clicks on your ads. The best thing is to experiment - try out each one for a week or two and see what is the best for you.
I earn better with HB Ad Program than with Google AdSense. It's only normal that people earn less with AdSence once they join the HB Ad Program - after all, Google's ads are no longer there all the time.
