What's a deal here?

    When I access my hub page initially, google ads appear only at the top of the page and do not appear at all in the sidebar.

    If I refresh the page, the sidebar adsense appears - and is ALWAYS, ALWAYS, the publisher number that is not mine.   Hubbers I checked with said I must be mistaken - but then reported they had the same results accessing my site.

    I have no problem with the view sharing - but I'm not getting any share of the adsense views though my ads are set on "high".

    Would really like to know why this is occurring.   Thanks

    I'd say the deal is that you only have one Hub, you've only been here six days and you've not taken the time to educate yourself as to how HubPages and AdSense actually work.

    You don't make any earnings from ad impressions (views) you only make earnings from ad click-thrus.  And you share your impressions in a 60/40 (you/HubPages) split, as clearly explained in the site FAQ.

    I am really starting to lose interest in this because i cannot understand the graphs and what they stand for, now I cant see my Stats on each hub, just a little box with a red X in it. what is up with that???

    In spite of the less than helpful comments, I'll ask again.

    I'm totally familiar with the hubpage policy and have read everything available.

    I'm also totally familiar with Adsense and not at all new to working online - just testing use of hubpages to add to traffic strategy going forward.  Though my page is what I'm asking about I've seen the same results on pages of friends who have multiple hubs.

    As I understand it, you must set the ads to "high" to be able to link out from hubs.  No problem.  I also understand that sharing of ads and that it is supposed to be random and no problem there either.

    In trying to understand what I was seeing, I accessed about 30 hubs, including those with ratings of 99 and 10, n addition to mine and those of several friends.  With not  a single exception here is what I found:

    When the adsense is displayed both at the top and in the sidebar - the published number was always the same one - I would assume those are the "shared views"

    When a publisher id not the same hub id shows, there is adsense only at the top of the page.
    Whether I simply visit a hub or visit and refresh the page while there - the result is exactly the same.

    Point is - in the big scheme a gain in targeted traffic may override what I perceive as a problem with adsense displays.  I like to totally understand any online product I use - and I research it thoroughly before spending much time on it.

    Maybe that's a bit more clear.  I'm just trying to understand why the results are not matching the terms.

    Now - if that's the way it's done - then I have to decide if it's something worth using.  But this doesn't seem to conform to what the terms say will be done.

    edit: perhaps I should add that I did a lot of reading and research on hubs before joining, too

    ksbteam, I've tested it on mine. And its working. I can see my publisher ID.

    Of the five times I checked the source code my publisher ID came up 3 times.

    Quite honestly, you are being a little vague. But what I understand you to be saying is that you think you need ads set on high to be able to link out from hubpages ?  - This is not the case - you can link out from hubpages without any ads on your hubs.

    Secondly, it seems you are suggesting that hubpages are not giving a fair split? i.e their impressions are showing more than they should? Not sure on this one. In which case, I would suggest you tale it up with hubpages .

    I hope that is more helpful.

    I think this is the primary issue. The bit about linking out is just a bit of backstory.

    I'm going to go have a closer look and help out a fellow hubber.

    I refreshed http://hubpages.com/hub/Best-Dogs-For-Children 20 times and each time I checked the page source and copied and pasted the Publisher ID. Though I may have accidentally refreshed the page twice on one occasion before checking the page source (I went and made myself a coffee in the middle of this little experiment). And these are the results:

    google_adclient: "ca-pub-9892644771604978",
    google_adclient: "ca-pub-9892644771604978",
    google_adclient: "pub-6958755572607374",

    google_adclient: "ca-pub-0701853051205247",
    google_adclient: "pub-6958755572607374",
    google_adclient: "ca-pub-9892644771604978",
    google_adclient: "ca-pub-9892644771604978",
    google_adclient: "pub-6958755572607374",

    From what I gather, ca-pub-9892644771604978 is you.

    pub-6958755572607374 is HubPages.

    And ca-pub-0701853051205247 is your referrer.

    So it's all in order as far as I can see.

    A question, how did you find out about HubPages?

    I looked, and your hub is o.k., but you really are jumping the gun on click income.  I didn't make a penny on hubpages until I had over 20 hubs and had been here for 3 months.  Then it was just pennies. 

    I don't think HubPages puts anything but their own views on your first hub, so as to discourage spammers.  No need to pay someone to spam you, right?  When they can see you're serious about being here, they'll put some on that will pay you. 

    In the meantime, yep, they make money, and you get this service for free.  Neat deal, huh?

    Thaks guys - those answers may have cleared it up for me.

    I can fully appreciate the need to develop more (and good) hubs for everything to work correctly.
    I'm just very analytical and always look carefully at things to see if they will work as I expect them too.

    Your points make a lot of sense.    I've known about hubs for a long time but with a lot of websites and projects just didn't have time for a while to start with hubs, though I kept reading about and looking at them.

    Have to say I've found I like building hubs more fun than building squidoo lens!  Guess I better get busy and catch up!

      Well, looks like you are on the right track, with a hubscore of 86 and your first hub at 80, with only one hub, I would say that it can only get better if you publish more.
