What's the Idea of Including Adsense Ads?

    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.

          Maybe, but I would have thought that was our responsibility, not HubPages. Although I suppose some people earn solely from Adsense from ads on this site.

    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.
