    How do your Adsense earnings compare to your Hubpages ads program earnings?

    I'm pretty new here, and have made about .50 in the hubpages ads program, but no more than .01 in my Google adsense account. Is this normal? I seem to have Adsense enabled, am posting on allowed topics, etc... How does your Hubpages income break down between these two sources? I also have both my hubpages account and my personal blog connected to my Adsense account, so I can't even tell which place that .01 came from.

    When you become part of the Hubpages Ad Program, you are permitting Hubpages to receive the benefits primarily, and will be eventually shared to you by stabilizing earning into per impression basis.

    That's why, you won't earn as much in Google Adsense when you are part of the Hubpages Ad Program. smile

    What "yougotme" said. My adsense earnings went way down when I enrolled in the HubPages ad program but that wasn't a bad thing. Each month my earnings have gradually increased in both programs. I believe a person will make more with the Hubpages ad program than adsense if their main way of earning online is through hub articles.

      The HubPages ad program takes ad spots away from AdSense, so there are less chances for AdSense earnings once the HubPages ad program has been set up.

    That sounds about right.  AdSense earnings are very sporadic.  The 1 cent earnings are likely just rare payments for page view impressions.  If you see a bigger AdSense earning, it means someone clcked an AdSense ad.  HubPages ad program is a much more reliable source of money since it is based on the volume of hub views.  50 cents per day or more is very doable via the HubPages ad program, once you get a number of Hubs up that generated traffic.

    My AdSense earnings are $1 to $2 per month, whereas hub pages ad program earnings are $50 to $90 per month...

    my adsense earning is just 0.13 cents per month while HP earning is USD $15 per month. I don't quite agree about HP earning will affect the adsense earning because before I join in HP earnings, my adsense earning was by a few cents too. If you want to see which blog, HP that helps your adsense earn more, go to your adsense account and press" Performance Report" just below the "Google Adsense"  headings. Then press " URL Channels" on your left hand side bar. You will see the list of websites that help you to earn the most in adsense. You will be able to know which site gain the 0.01

    From what I understand the ad program when turned on, replaces most of the adsense ads (google)  with ad program ads (hubpages).    Most hubbers make more with the ad program as its based on views, not clicks.    It seems you need about at least 100 hubs before seeing any kind of regular income from either source. Good Luck Laura!

    If you want to make more money through adsense then stay away from HP ads program.

    My earnings on both are about equal.  I have several external web sites, which I have been largely ignoring during my apprenticeship program, but now I am posting in them again.  I believe the potential income is more on the side of the Adsense for my external sites, but all income is good.

    Regarding tracking where your 0.01 comes from, you can put in URLs in your adsense account and track the main sources of your commissions.  Finding out how to do that isn't difficult.  I suggest you do that if you want to know where most of your adsense income originates. 

    One more thing:  If you in the HubPages program, then the adsense income from Hubpages will be a trickle.  That is my experience and that is probably where the penny is coming from.

    It takes a while before the Google ads even match your subject content.  I make more off of the HubPages ad program.  It takes a lot of effort and time.  I think the important thing is to produce content that is being searched.  It takes time, a plan and strategy, but key words are key. You have a lot of good responses here.  I would agree that the HubPages program is more profitable, at least it is for me, but you want to write a lot and stay at it as much as you can.

    Thanks for the questions and responses.  I wasn't aware of the differences:  I am still learning and look forward to writing more articles.
