    Is there a way for me to temporarily disable my Google Adsense account? I want to earn through HP Earning Programs alone for now.

      Then simply configure the HP program to use it.  You must have an active adsense account to use the HP Earning Program.

      You will still earn from adsense at the same time, but the earnings will be minuscule compared to those from HP.

      Don't disable it. HP needs you to have it in place so they can allocate earnings to you. As Wilderness says, just switch to HP ads program and earnings in Adsense will drop accordingly.

      If you disable your Adsense account, you won't be able to earn at all.  You must keep the Adsense account but can choose to use HP as your first place to earn simply by activating it in your settings.

    Go to your Earnings page and activate the "Ad Program" that you'll see as the first item under "HubPages Earnings Program Settings".

    As theraggededge and wilderness had said, leave your Google AdSense configured as is. As per the terms of service for the HP Earnings Program, you need to keep AdSense active. In addition, you still will have one Adsense ad at the bottom of all your hubs.

    Oh, okay. Thanks, everyone. I just thought maybe I could disable Google Adsense. So, you mean I simply have to let it stay that way - both HP Earnings Program and Google Adsense activated. Thanks again!

      Yes.  It is very hard to become approved for Adsense, and if you totally disable it you likely will not be able to get it back. Just do as noted above and you'll be fine.
