In the HubPages earning program, two of these ads are displayed on articles. So why are they included at all? Do they have the advantage of generating earnings form clicks and the HubPages ads don't (or do they?)
I don't know, but I tried the following experiment.
If I log out and look at random articles across the niche sites, the AdSense ads at the bottom are based on my browsing history (or are completely random,) whereas other ads on the page are more related to the hub topic.
Maybe I'm misunderstanding your question but you can earn from the Adsense ads as well - but you have to log into your adsense account to see your earnings there.
I know that Kierstin, but what I'm curious about is why not exclusively display HubPages program ads?
Just to keep our Adsense accounts active! Remember, Google suspends Adsense accounts that do not generate earnings.
This is a good question and I have often wondered too. I have a feeling it's got something to do with the HP ads program. Only if Adsense ads are showed on the page can they track and associate the impressions to the right person?
Because if the HP ads stood alone, then it would not be necessary to have an Adsense account in order to be a part of the Ad program.
I'm one of those people - I don't have other sites outside of HubPages right now.
The Hubpage Ad program pays according to impressions whereas the Google AdSense pays per click so maybe it's got something to do with that.

Currently I'm signed up with Google Adsense and I've been debating whether I should sign up for the Hubpages Earning Program because I'm hesitant to give out my tax information. Or should I worry about this only after I have a decent amount of traffic coming to my hubs?

Yesterday I noticed NONE of my hubs have AdSense ads on them any longer... where the ads were there is only a white block of space. I still have an active AdSense account, none of my hubs are flagged that the ads are disabled, they are all set to "high". I completed the pin process...

Adsense sent me a message that says that my publisher ID is not in my Hubpages and HowTheyPlay ads.text files. My earnings are fine generally, not too concerned, just wanted to bring the issue to your attention.

Pretty frustrating when I get a significant traffic spike only to see CPM values plummet. My Google Analytics stay steady for the most part as far as page time, bounce rate and things of that nature. Why does this always happen?

Something just occured to me, not only are we writers here but we are ALSO CONSUMERS. I see nothing wrong with clicking on a fellow hubbers google ad if it's something we are interested in. I am getting the feeling that some people are afraid to do this for fear of reprisal for being click happy...
