I accidentally deactivated my HP earnings 4-5 days ago and since then it has proved impossible to re-configure the programme. I reported the issue and received a response that the team is aware of the glitch and that their engineers had been informed. In the meantime, ads are still appearing on my articles but my earnings from the programme for the last four days have been nil. Does anyone else have this issue?
I have a tendency to switch back and forth. Now I'm chicken. Please let us know when the glitch is fixed.
Hello Glenis Rix,
This issue has been resolved. You can now reactivate the HubPages Ad Program.
If you deactivated the HP Ad program then your adsense should be active I would think - so maybe you can check adsense for any earnings?
Thanks. Yes, it is active - but it always was. Earning a little more now but much less than the HP ad program.
Yes, when you deactivate the HP Ads program, those ads are replaced by Adsense Ads. So for this period, you will earn on Adsense and not HP. You are earning a little more because these ads have replaced your HP Ads.
With the HP ad program on, we all just have one ad from Adsense at the bottom of the hub, that's why we make a small amount.
To add to this, yes you are earning less on Adsense than the HP Ad program and this is what most of us have seen. This is also why we all use the HP Ads program and not Adsense.
Switch back as soon as the glitch is fixed and you should be good to go. Until then, it is expected to have nil on that sheet.
Thanks for your explanation.Adsense has definitely less lucrative than the Ad program. I will just have to learn patience.
Now, now!! You know full well that I switched to Adsense awhile back and my earnings there far exceeded those on HP! However, there were some glitches with Adsense payments, so I switched back to HP and due to the merger with Maven am doing well. Much depends on your topic, your number of hubs, etc. One shoe does not fit all feet!
I switched to using Adsense only ads this week. So far I am at least earning on average about the same I was making with the HubPages ad program if not more.
It seems the mobile video game hubs I wrote earn more with Adsense as the CPC (cost per click) factors more.
I also plan on using my Adsense account on my own website so I figured I might as well combine both earning streams.
I did the same, unfortunately, and now I'm in the pits too. Fingers crossed it will be resolved soon!

I just de-activated my HubPages ads program and I was wondering if someone has any experience to share. Did your AdSense revenue increase after de-activating HP ads?

On browsing the forum, I have become aware that we can't earn on HubPages without AdSense. This is a grim realization for me.I have 29 featured hubs that are generally considered to be of reasonable quality. I applied for an AdSense account over a year ago, and since then I've had nothing. When I...

Well, no doubt google adsense is one of the best in terms of earning revenue from hubpages. However, i have only been earning cents at adsense!! That's so bad. I desperately need help from fellow hubbers, what should i do to increase my earnings

A few days ago, I noticed that a lot of people were talking about changing from HP Ad Program to Google AdSense. I had tried that a few years ago, but switched back pretty quickly because I earned better with HP. Recently though, since my earnings have dropped so much, I figured I didn't have much...

Hi Fellow Hubbers!I have done a bit of (unscientific) averaging of AdSense income on HubPages.com, and calculated an earnings rule for Hubs:On average, any given hub will earn about $10.00 per year.My page showing my sources is: http://hubpages.com/hub/Hubbers-Reveal- … s-EarningsDoes this...

I noticed that CPMs are really low so I decided to just start a test where I would just be running AdSense ads only and it's only day one, only one data point, but so far I'm already out-earning my HubAds earnings.Anyone else running tests and seeing anything similar (or different results?)
