    Question regarding AdSense revenue sharing - do I get a revenue share from alternate Ads?

    I have couple of questions on HubPages revenue sharing

    1. I understand HubPages will use my AdSense account for 60% of the impressions. However, I see an alternate_ad_url is used in my Google Ad script, which points to a script file in HubPages and is common for all. This means, when Google has no Ads to show, HubPages will be displaying anything they want. Do I get a share of the revenue earned from the alternate Ads displayed in my share of AdSense impressions? I believe the answer is NO since the script has no information on who I am.

    Due to limited space, I will continue in another post

    I can answer this question in short. Your ads will be displayed for 60% of the Google ads if you use only adsense. But now you can move to Hubpages ad program where Hubpages will show premium ads beside Google adsense + Google adsense. You will earn from Google adsense + Hubpages Ad program . This will increases your earning potential.

    We don't need to find how HP doing it. I am just happy that Hubpages gives you the opportunity to earn more than 3 dollars for 1000 page impressions , beside you can earn money to your adsense account too.

    Your answer is really great, but I think you did not get my point. I understand my 60% share of impressions and other revenue sharing programs.

    My question was very specific. What I wanted to know is, in my share of the 60% AdSense impressions, when there are no AdSense Ads to display, HP uses an alternate Ad script. Do I get the revenue from from the alternate_url used in my Ad impressions? Or, do HP take the revenue from it, which is supposed to be my share.
