    Why am I not earning from Google?

    I am earning money from Hub Pages Ad Programs, but not from Google Ad Sense.  I am showing "Active" on all their programs.  Earn every day from Ad Programs. Earned one single day from Google in three months.

    It is more difficult to earn money from Adsense because your viewers need to click on the Google ads to earn money; whereas on HP Ads Program, no clicks are needed... we earn from views. 

    Also, Hubpages is in the process of changing the hub layout.  As far as I know, Fashion and Beauty, and Technology categories are being experimented on.  For a few weeks now, Google ads are not showing in the hubs on categories where Hubpages is trying the new hub layout.

    I hope this helps.

    One reason (or at least a contributing factor) could be that you're still pretty new on HubPages.  It can take awhile to start seeing Ad Sense earnings (or seeing earnings that seem worth mentioning).    Also, if you're signed up with the HubPages Ads program you will earn less from Ad Sense because you'll earn, instead, from HP Ads.  You may earn a little from Ad Sense, but you'll earn less from Ad Sense with HP Ads than  you would if you didn't use the HP Ads and used Ad Sense only. 

    Most people are said to do a little better with the combination of both HP Ads and Ad Sense.   Since you're still pretty new I'd think (though I can't be sure, by any means) you're better off with HP Ads (and the smaller amount from Google), at least for now and until you see what kind of traffic you have after awhile.
