    Anyone Earning from Hupages Ad Program or Amazon Program?

    My earning have dropped to almost nothing in the last two months.  I was wondering if anyone else was finding that they were not making anything with those two programs and what can we do about it.

    I use to experience drops in Adsense earns after Christmas every year, for the next 2 months. Then it rises up again. Maybe this is the problem here too.

    I'm too new to Hubpages, and I didn't noticed any drop in earnings at Ad program.

    I don't find any significant drop of earnings from Ad Program during the last two months, Debra. However, there was a drastic drop experienced about 7-8 months back which recovered partially after about four months. This all happened without any additional inputs from my side.

    My earnings through adsense dropped after September 2014. I have not earned much from amazon.

      My earnings with Adsense also more or less went to zero

    I've never earned much from Amazon in all my time here, so on the rare occasion that I do make a sale I'm more surprised than anything else.

    HubPages Ad Program earnings have been in the tank ever since the last big Google tweak last Fall, which sent views for pretty much the entire HP site straight down the poop shoot.

      (shrugs) I gave up worrying about it a long time ago. I treat my postings here as a hobby.  If I earn some beer money out of it once in awhile, that's just gravy....I have come to terms with the fact that I'm never gonna see much $$.

    I did notice a drop recently in the Hubpages ad earnings. They also made me limit my Amazon to one item. I only had two items there. I wonder why my earnings have dropped when my hubs are still being read!

      It appears that we are making HP money and we aren't getting a thing.  Pitty too.  Years ago this was a fun place to write and share.  Now it is full of rules and noone is making money except for the staff.  GREEDY SOB's

    I never made anything from Ad Sense. Amazon I figured it was because I had low traffic.

    I still can't get my adsense activated.  It has been very frustrating.

      I couldn't get my adsense activated either. I had to post almost 20 posts before it was activated. It was highly recommended to me to do it immediately before posting. Either people are afraid to say it as it is or they don't know what is going on.

      My Adsense was  fine  then I got a notice on Hub pages saying it MAY have been cancelled by me or because of TOS.  I have written to HP and to Google loads of times.  Nobody wants to know, so I only write for the love of it.

      Both of you need to send HP more mail and find out why.  Here is the email that I have for them:

    Yes . Mine are doing better than ever, and I'm sure that is true of many others-- but I hate to even say that much since earnings are not supposed to be discussed.

      And I am not and have not.  Though I have seen many other people doing it in the past.

    My AdSense earnings dropped a little at the end of last year but have started to pick up again. I have never earned anything from Amazon.

    I've always treated my hubs, adsense, and amazon as a hobby so any time they actually pay out it's just a little extra to spend. Usually HP pays out once per year for me. Amazon has yet to pay out, and Adsense is really hit or miss. I'm sitting at $80 in Adsense and baring making anything anymore. HP is on target to pay out in a few months. And Amazon.. Well screw Amazon. Maybe one day it will pay out. If I need something, my day to day job will pay for it. I would never rely on HP, Amazon, or Adsense for income.

    Never really made anything from here.

    So the fact I'm still not making anything hasn't changed much. big_smile

    My Hubpages Ad Program earnings peaked last fall and have decreased ever since, leveling off somewhat in recent times. Somebody said that Google tweaked something last fall, which makes sense. Google is God. As for Amazon, I went through all of 2014 without making any money from their ads. Before that I'd get a gift certificate every once in awhile. Oh, well!
