My Issue With Google Adsense

    This may end up being sort of a complicated topic but I will do my best to keep it short and sweet.

    First of all, this whole Google Adsense thing isn't the best idea for Hubbers (only my opinion). For one, HubPages gets to profit from my Hubs while I have to wait for Uncle Google to decide when my quality Hubs are good enough.

    With that said, HubPages already has ads placed all throughout each Hub, even the Hubs I am still creating. If I had a personal website, the site would not have any ads on it whatsoever until Uncle Google allowed it. So apparently, either HubPages sells its own ad space or has already had the entire site accepted by Google Adsense - either one.

    Whatever the deal, all Hubbers who write quality Hubs (especially featured Hubs) should automatically get a share of the ad revenue.

    Now that I have complained about that, is there something that I am missing here? Can I get paid without having to mess around with Google Adsense?

    Google: Damned with it, damned without it.

    "Whatever the deal, all Hubbers who write quality Hubs (especially featured Hubs) should automatically get a share of the ad revenue."

    We do. The share is based on traffic to that hub. Which is fair. HP doesn't profit until you get traffic either.

      That comes nowhere near answering the question.

      The question that should have been answered (not a rebut to a statement) is, "Can I get paid without having to mess around with Google Adsense?"

      If the wording is confusing, let me ask it in a clearer fashion: Can I get paid by HubPages without signing up for Google Adsense?

      Furthermore, in my case, traffic numbers are not the issue. If they were, I would never have posted this particular question for it would have been fruitless.

      With that said, please stick to the question.

        Like a lot of people, I agree, it would be nice to not have to deal with Google. Unfortunately, you have to have a Google Adsense account to earn here, at least as far as views and clicks go. Used to be able to earn with Amazon without a Google Adsense account, not sure if that still holds true, maybe someone else can clarify.

        Of course, if you try to earn through Amazon, you have to be able to sell products, and I don't think product articles are what you write. Neither do I. Looks like your articles are informational and educational, which don't generally sell Amazon products.

          I much appreciate your straightforward and topic-related answer. That is what I needed to know. I was hoping I was missing something and we could make money without Adsense. But, it's okay, I'll just follow the system - sure I'll get there eventually.

        You don't get to decide which statement I respond to. I'm a hubber, not a staff member.

          He cannot even demand that of a staff member. Oops I responded to something that wasn't a question. All hail the almighty Google.

                  Reread what you wrote above. You are the one who questioned my intellect by looking at my picture haha. Yes, I wanted to see what kind of stuff a person needs to write to not even have 1000 page views, yet worry about Adsense and earnings and how HP is cheating you.

                  You seem to think it's fine to be rude to other hubbers.

                  Brandon isn't a moderator, by the way, so be careful you don't get reported yourself for being so insulting.

              You should be ashamed of yourself for making such a nasty and personal attack. If you did log onto this forum from time to time you would find that this person is helpful to all of us.

                  Firstly, Dr Mark is referring to your remark about Brandon's photo.

                  Secondly here is my "sarcastic and rude" answer again. Just in case anyone is confused.

                  >>"Whatever the deal, all Hubbers who write quality Hubs (especially featured Hubs) should automatically get a share of the ad revenue."

                  If anyone can point out the sarcasm and rudeness in that response, I'd be truly grateful.

                    No, you really cant with your attitude. If you did not feel the need to be rude to people then you would find that people would not be rude to you.

              "What I was doing, nonetheless, was letting you know your response was less than...intelligent, maybe? "

              How very kind of you. I'm not sure I could have carried on living without your succinct opinion of my response. I bow down before your most powerful intellect.

                    Also, you don't have to have impeccable English to write here. But, grammar issues need to be fixed. For example, it must be: "Bowing for too long causes lower back pain".

                    I wonder what made you think I'm a moderator? If I was you'd be banned from posting just because you question the integrity of the site you wish to contribute to without being open to an educated conversation about the same.

                Not a professional response.  Your statement could also be considered somewhat sexist.  Please have a little more respect for others in the forum.  You could end up flagged or banned, and that's not handy when you need help.

                    You were speaking directly to a woman ... in the corporate world, you would have been fired for a statement like that.  Not professional, and yes, it can be taken as sexist.  Your negative attitude does not belong in this forum.  Period

        Still waiting for you to show where the rudeness, sarcasm (and now racism) is in my response.

        >>"Whatever the deal, all Hubbers who write quality Hubs (especially featured Hubs) should automatically get a share of the ad revenue."

        We do. The share is based on traffic to that hub. Which is fair. HP doesn't profit until you get traffic either.

        Still can't see anything rude or derogatory. I need help here. Apparently these few sentences 'started it'.

        If you, RussellFry, cannot demonstrate that I was rude to you in those words, then you should apologise for your subsequent accusatory, personal, and demeaning comments.

          He will not apologise ... I read his article about Islamic Polygamy, and his tactics on how he tried to coerce his first wife to accept a second wife ... he lacks a conscience not for his choice in polygamy but rather how his article describes his manipulation.  Sad that I gave him a few cents worth of traffic but I understand now WHO he is and what he's about

            I know. But his non-apology will demonstrate the kind of man he is.

            Edit: Ha ha... he's deleting his most insulting posts, but of course they are still showing in the replies. Futile, Mr Fry. Click on 'Chronological', top right. They are all there.

            lobobrandonposted 8 months agoin reply to this

            Yeah, I read that one too. Because it stood out. He compared how polygamy is the same as the LGBT community and I would agree in the sense that he says everyone should be free to make their own choices as long as it harms no one, etc. But then I saw the manipulation part.

            He even went on to compare how trans people have a higher suicide rate without taking into consideration how they are depressed because of the way society treats them.

            But, that's a whole different story than what this thread is about.

              Yes, another story.   His article explained his beef with Imperialism ... he's very bitter about the concept and anyone associated with it.  Take it easy, Brandon.  Out of here
