    Comparing AdSense and HP earnings...

    My HP earnings have been doing fine (neglecting the google update now). But ever since I activated my AdSense account it nearly doesn't make any money. My average is slightly more than a dollar (HP earning are a great deal higher). Is something wrong with my AdSense? or do my readers happen to click on HP's hosted ads more often than on Google's ads in my hubs?

    If you have both, you only have one Adsense ad towards the bottom, which will gain very little compared to an ad at the top in both CPC and impressions. Basically, you can either have bigger HP income and lower Adsense, or higher Adsense and little to nothing from HP.

    On a side, kinda related, note, I do think it's kinda funny that you get more for ads placed higher, then penalized for ads above the fold. I do wish HubPages had an option for placing ads in the header instead. I'm redoing all my ads on my blogs, but normally that's where I like to keep my above the fold ad. Oh well.
