Why Don't I make more than pennies with Google Adsense?
I've noticed recently that I am scraping in bare minimum earnings with my Hubs, and I was wondering what some other users here on HubPages were doing to compensate for low earnings...
If you use the Hubpages Ad program, it's because of the ad layout, which is best explained by the diagrams here,
I earn nothing from Adsense. I had earned less than a dollar, and got the good ole Adsense closed my account for invalid clicks I think, which we have no control over. Invalid clicks seems to be their favorite. I have a new adsense account,but it is only active here. I got rid of it on my personal blogs and websites. My earnings here are from the HP ad program only. I have a freelance writing job, so what I earn here is peanuts, cookie jar money, if I ever hit the payout.
Do u promote your site? Or try to write more hubs as you can?
The Ad layout explains it all.
The readers eye moves from top left to right to bottom left to right. The HP ads are exactly in that path, in fact to even see an adsense ad the reader glances over 7 HP ads units.
There's really nothing you can do about this.
You have to do SEO to each hub. Look it up. Then you have to write about things people are searching for. Then if you write about interesting things, that are well thought out; and well researched. Then.... you make money.
Personally I do not think focus on Adsense is a go way to go. Your Adsense account could be terminated by Google anytime. They simply have too many publisher and do not really have time to go through each of them.
My HP Ad earning grow faster and more stable compare to Adsense. Take Adsense as a bonus and focus on provide more quality content instead.
Good answer I will definitely keep this in mind! In fact I was considering closing my AdSense account down for HubPages, and going strictly off the HP AD earnings instead. Do you think I would earn more from my HP Ads if I removed the Adsense ads?
If I understand correctly from the ad program faq page (hubpages.com/faq) - that blue and red boxes. With Adsense enabled (+ HP Ad program), there will be additional ads at your footer.
Personally I think it is no harm to enable Adsense.
If you used only Google Adsense, you would probably earn more from it. But as for the total you would make - compared to what you have right now, might be less.
I don't make ANY money on there and I am baffled as to what to do as well!
Write more content and make sure that all your Hubs are linked with the HubPages Ad Program.... Trust me you will not make anything with 11 Hubs! This isn't to attack you, but to simply put forward that this whole thing does take time. Some users have been here for 5 years!

On browsing the forum, I have become aware that we can't earn on HubPages without AdSense. This is a grim realization for me.I have 29 featured hubs that are generally considered to be of reasonable quality. I applied for an AdSense account over a year ago, and since then I've had nothing. When I...

In the past I relied solely on Adsense to earn income from Hubpages, however this year I was able to finally open a PayPal account, so I signed up for the Hubpages Ad program. As expected, I saw a drop in my Adsense earnings, but now it's practically non-existent. I was earning a couple dollars...

Is it true that the 60/40 model only applies after HubPages pays their expenses? Because I have expenses too... I don't see why we should suffer because HubPages wants 40% to be pure profit AFTER their expenses.

Okay-- here's my question. Stopped Hubpages ad program for experimentation. Within 2 hours, Adsense was finally paying decent! Was able to actually receive payment in one month because I hit the threshold of Adsense of $100.00. Super psyched finally! Last 3 days, nothing! Absolutely...
