    What's happening to HubPages earnings?

    Has anyone else noticed a drop in earnings?

    Yes.  Mine has dropped by about half of what it was.  I've also noticed that the ads on my hubs are for websites that have nothing to do with my hubs.  That might have something to do with it in my case.

    I've actually seen an increase, but I seem to be in the minority. I've seen quite a few posts about drops in earnings and a drop in views.

    To Frankly My Dear: I believe the reason the ads are different than you hubs is based on what you have searched for. I noticed a correlation to what I was searching for recently in google and what ads would appear on hubs I was looking at. So for example: I had been researching lawn and landscape in our area earlier, than I got on to hubpages and was reading articles on SEO and I would see ads for TruGreen and Local lawn companies even though the hubs had nothing to do with them. I'm wondering if its a change in how google decides what to display in ads.
