    Do I earn more money with Adsense alone or do I need to sign up for Hubpages ad program to earn more

    I was wondering which program pays more. Do I stand a chance to earn more money with Google AdSense alone ? I've heard it pays more...

    Hi Edwin, that is a good question. So far I am finding I am earning a few cents on a daily basis from adsense. Yet once in a while , I'd get paid 50 cents from hubpages. Yet this is rare and to new still on this site to say which is better.
    Hope this answers your question.

    Use both.  For one thing, Adsense has a $100 min payout which takes forever to reach, if you ever reach it.

    If you use HP earnings, you can also use HP Amazon program and earn higher commissions than if you use your own account, but you do give up some perks this way.  You cannot track anything when you use HP Amazon program.  You don't know products that are clicked on. You cannot select your own tracker ID.  Amazon does not pay you directly.     With HP program, your sales commissions is also part of your monthly earnings, but there is a delay in Amazon payments regardless if you use HP program or your own Associate program.  You can also opt in for eBay as well with HP program.

    Using HP earnings does not stop Adsense earnings from accumulating, 2 separaate entities.

    I've been making money with Adsense alone--I don't know much about the HP program. I did make my first Amazon sale this month and no luck with ebay so far. I have to check if Hub Pages pays me.

      Edwin:  TOS viloation for Adsense and Hp to disclose earnings.

    I use both programs. My HP ad totals may not be anything to shout about, but glaciers move faster than my AdSense.

    I am signed up for Adsense and for eBay and Amazon.  The only thing I have earned so far is from Adsense.  I only earned a few dollars and would like to know how to make more?

    The better question is why not use as many as possible? Use Amazon, Ebay, Adsense, and Hubpages. All you need to do is sign up, and in the case of Amazon and Ebay post some links to products on those sites. There were a couple a months last year where I didn't do anything on this site but I still reached payout from Hubpages. I literally didn't do anything. But, the hubs that I have posted since I have started tend to have steady traffic so I really don't do too much, other than write more every now and then. I sometimes get money from Amazon but I have never gotten anything from Ebay, so I tend to use Amazon capsules more often.
    If you have steady traffic then why not? The $50 payout from Hubpages is a lot easier to reach than the $100 payout from Adsense.
