    I know I asked something similar before but I am a bit confused about Adsense earnings.  I don't know how on earth anyone ever gets a payout at least from the way I'm going.  My Adsense earnings have always been between 0 - 2cents a day with maybe a few days (and I mean a few over about two and a half years) being a dollar something and one day being three dollars and something and I guess a few days over 2 cents but under a dollar.  It hasn't changed no matter how many hubs or views I've gotten.  So with 10 hubs and 100-200 views it was 0 to 2 cents, with 25 hubs and about 300 vies it was 0 to 2 cents, with 100 hubs and 400 views a day it was 0 to 2 cents and with 125 hubs and 600 to 1200 views a day it's 0 to 2 cents.  I knows when you're on the HP ads program you don't get much from Adsense but is this normal?  In two and a half years I've accumulated a little over 16 dollars.  Doing the math it seems I'll reach my first payout in another 12 and a half years unless things change.  Don't know what this means but am I doing something wrong or is there a bug with the number of adsence ads on my articles?  I have no idea how you even determine which are Adsense and which are HP so I'm not sure if every article really has an adsense ad.  Thanks!

      It really depends on your topic and the popularity of your hubs.  Advertisers pay more for popular topics but there's a lot of competition for those types of hubs in terms of ranking and page views.  I used to make practically nothing on Adsense but now that I have more articles and views have gone up considerably, I make a lot more...although there are still days when payments are very low.

      Hi Natalie - The last time I passed the $100 minimum payout on google adsense was August of 2013! BUT... I'm up to $89.54 again now! LOL Plus I have their ads on a few of my websites and my pictures on stockvault! I made a whole $1.25 over the past week! For me the hubads are way more lucrative. I think you'd have to have a mega-performing page/article/website to make any good profit from adsense, but what do I know!

    I gave up watching my AdSense totals a long time ago. Glaciers move faster than they do.
    The HP Ads Program is where it's at for me.

      Same here Natalie, I don't really earn anything in AdSense maybe 5cents per month but nothing serious that's why I don't really check it anymore. I don't understand how it works anyway.

        Okay, just so it's not just me.  It seemed like people were saying they didn't get hardly anything in Adsense as they only got payouts 3-4 times a year which I couldn't even fathom.  They must be getting far more views than me.  But even at 10,000 views a day that would be about 10 times mine and I'm assuming 10 times my earning and adsense income which would still be years before a payout.  Though maybe it also represents earnings from websites and blogs which I didn't think of before which would be all adsense ads.

      Agree! I don’t expect a payout during my lifetime! I think Google Adsense has the scales firmly balanced in it’s favour.

    Same here, Natalie.Nothing much worth watching. However, before YouTube changed their criteria, I had payouts from Adsense and watched it every day. Now, I am building my subscribers and will go back to watching it every day when I am back in their monetization program.

    If you have Hubads turned on you are showing very few Adsense ads and they are in lower quality page positions, so they are never going to yield very much.

      The whole reason I signed up for Hub-ads in the first place was because when I was running strictly AdSense, my earnings were still crap-ola. Haha.

    Which ad is more fruitful? Hubads? Adsense?

      Most people seem to think Hubads is far superior to Adsense, although a few disagree.  For myself, although it has been quite a while since I disabled Hubads, when I did earnings fell sharply.

      HP Ad Program is where it's at. However; whenever I get near the AdSense finish line from other sources, I switch to straight HP AdSense to slither across. big_smile

        What do you mean by that ?

          lobobrandonposted 3 months agoin reply to this

          This means that the user (PD) you replied to has other websites or platforms where they have Adsense ads. And when close to payout (100 USD), PD switches from the HP Ad Program to Adsense here on Hubpages to quickly cross the 100 USD barrier.

      Again, this depends on your topics and views.  Some topics do extremely well on Adsense others do well on HP.  I switched awhile back to Adsense and views really went up. Then Adsense started having some payment problems that were cutting me out of a week's pay here or there, so I switched back to HP.  Once Maven showed up, HP ads started paying more than Adsense ever did...but now Adsense is doing well,  I make payout ever other month with it.

    Natalie, When you use the HubPages Ad Program, as I do, there is only one AdSense ad on your hubs (at the bottom). All the other ads are through the HubPages Ad Program, which may also be AdSense, but can also be other ads served by Header Bidding and EBDA. I believe Say Media in included in that too.

    1. Natalie Frank profile image95

      So even with just one Adsence ad, shouldn't it record impression even if that doesn't equate to earnings (I'm not sure what equates to earnings - if you get a certain amount based on views as well as clicks or just clicks)?  So, if I have say 28,000 views overall for the month shouldn't at least the number of page views listed by Adsence  be more than say 3500?  I'm just trying to figure all this out and why some days I have 3 cents total with a lower page view and impression number and no clicks and other days I have 0 cents with a higher page view and impression number and say 12 clicks.

      Thanks once more for trying to explain technical stuff to a technical idiot smile

      1. Glenn Stok profile image99
        Glenn Stokposted 3 months agoin reply to this

        Since there is only one Adsense ad I noticed that the view count is very close to the impression count on my AdSense reports.

        The views reported in your stats page shows all the views. But you are seeing just your 60% reported by Google. However that still is way off from your 28,000 vs 3500. I can’t explain that discrepancy. You should as the team to look into that.

        As for payment. Some ads pay a small amount for views, but most pay for clicks. Either way, the amount advertisers pay is based on your subject matter. Advertisers pay more for various subjects based on competition within AdWords, Google’s platform where advertisers maintain their ad placement.

    Anyone else had a noticeably mediocre past two days? Fall tends to do pretty well for traffic, so I'm hoping this can just be attributed to mid-week drops, and will soon increase again.

      Yeah, but mine is not unexpected for this time of the year.
