    What earns you more, Adsense or the Hubpage Ad Program?

    I have been reading over some previous questions and answers and I got to wondering which ad program is currently paying better, or is running both best? I know it can vary, but if you have any math to go with it that would be great.

    Right now my ads automatically have adsense, I am not sure how to tell if it's only adsense, or both. Last month Hubpages shows I made $3.86 (woo! lol), and Adsense, $0.16...

    Any help or advice here would be great.

    For me Hubpages Ad program is far more better than Adsense. I have earned ten times more from Ad program,  than from Ad sense. And I think it is same for everyone.

    I hope you won't mind me asking this here, but is it possible to apply for Hubpage Ad Program without Google AdSense account? Because I'm getting frustrated with Adsense, since they don't accept me (yet). Thank you.

      Actually based on the answers I got, that was going to be my next question (how to turn google ads off so I can try HP ads only for a month)?

    definitely HP ad rogram. I could earn usd$15 per month in HP while I earn usd 50 cents in adsense. See the difference?

    I took the liberty of writing a hub about that. Including some modest amount of data from an experiment I did in order to see what is the absolute minimum of the earning potential of hubpages.

    Might be a bit lengthy but worth the reading in my opinion. :-)
    Looking forward to see as to what conclusion this has led you to.

    I find it coming from HP Ad Program more than that of Adsense.

    I think the answer depends a lot on how many views you get a day. I find that with a higher number of views then it is better to go with HP Ads as you get a decent amount of money based on the number of views whereas the adsense income can be a bit hit and miss, but if my views go down a fair amount (for example I have another account that fluctuates every few months) let's say the views go down to under 100 a day, then I will switch that to adsense as the hubpages income will take a while to add up anyway so I will take a chance on getting a few nice adsense clicks (and these can just add on to other adsense income I have). If the views go above 100 a day then I will switch back to HP Ads as that means it may only take a few months to get a HP payment. Obviously I don't continually switch but at the moment I might switch every 4-6 months or so. Hope that makes sense!

      How do you switch to just HP ads and disable Adsense? I asked this question, and everyone's answer was that they did not think it was possible to disable adsense and still use HP ad program?

      When I say switch I mean switch between purely Adsense and the HP Ads that include some Adsense.

      Well, since AdSense is a required step from enrolling to HP's Earnings Program, it is pretty certain that you cannot fore HP ads only. After all, if they don't have a publisher for your content, some other kind of ad must be shown.

    I would say that so far the best earning program has been Hubpages Ad Program.

    The HP program by far outpaces adsense. It also looks so much cleaner. I am a huge fan of the earning program here.

    I can only speak for myself, I am a sure that results will vary depending on the subject of your content and how many views you get.  I personally earn more from the hubpages ad program than what I earn from adsense (only counting adsense earnings from hubpages).  There may be others who have experienced different results, but I love the hubpages ad program.  Just my humble opinion on the matter.
