My Adsense income is basically in the garbage can. Prior to "the glitch" I was making payout regularly. Not now. Yestrday I made 19 cents...on mrer than 200 articles! The only thing I can figure is that Adsnse has not yet forgiven HP for indexing all of those old, low quality hubs. Is it jut me, or is this happening to everybody?
I've never really used Adsense, because it never seems to earn money for me and I find the site very confusing. I use HP's ad program and I made an estimated 16 cents yesterday with Adsense. If you are using straight Adsense that seems way too low. I know Adsense doesn't pay squat if you are using the HP program, but our numbers are very close and that doesn't seem right. I also have a lot less views and articles than you.
I use to make a lot less, but this past year I was making more for one reason or another. I made my first payout with Adsense in January of 2018 after seven years here and am about to make my second one if earnings continue staying up. I haven't switched back and forth between the two either. I have been a strict HP program user for years.
For some reason I seem to be making more with Adsense in the past year, although for January it shows I'm making a 45% decrease than this time last year.
Join the club! I found Healdove being moved to patientslounge, has messed me all up. Patientslounge needs to be added to auth sites and I emailed support. I'm not the only one. My pub ID is not added, therefore, I have no earnings eligible.
I've just posted some new discussions. I have gone through about 8 articles so far, and there are wrong ID numbers and there are also several articles that don't have any Pub IDs in them at all! I'm having a stroke
Perhaps you should email the team for help on this. The only thing I know to do is to go to Adsense and check to see whether you have added new niche sites, especially those that some of your articles have been moved to. To do this go to the Adsense site, click on the three little lines in the upper left hand corner, click on "sites" and all of your active sites should come up. If any are missing, simply hit the plus button at the top and add the https info for each site. Just takes a minute. Maybe you've already done this but if now, it's worth a try.
More and more people are using adblockers.
"According to a new IAB report, 26 percent of desktop users and 15 percent of mobile consumers use blockers to remove ads from publishers' websites."

Well, maybe that's the problem. In my case spring and summer views will tell the story. I'm still in my off season right now, but even with that, Adsense should be doing better. Wondering how hubbers who only use Adsense are doing now.
Right now I am making about nothing with AdSense. Like about 1 - 5 cents a day. This is also on AdSense only. I switched because I was hopping between what I make on my blog and HubPages I would reach the payout threshold.
But I am only getting about 100 views a day. When people make "legitimate" ad clicks I notice some earnings every once and a while.
I moved some hubs to my own blog and some of my hubs dropped in views overall. I am the process of writing more content as I do not have too many hubs. My earnings issue is I get too few views in a day.
I loved over some of your hubs and no surprise I saw a lot ads related to RVs and traveling.
Right now I'm getting between 3,000 and 4,000 views per day...they should be producing more than cents daily on Adsense! Ironically, for the first time in all the years I've been here, Google sent me a 1099!
I have similar views and daily Adsense earnings range from single figure cents to less than 50 cents. This time last year it was over double that with large spikes every so often.
Maybe it has something to do with placement of the ads on articles? Are they in the same place as before?
HubPages shows ads in a nice way I think. Mostly on the sidebar and above the fold (when your first open a page there is a wide ad). Some ads get put into the article as well. It does seem random so I am guessing ads are placed on the length of content.
As far as I know that has not changed. This amount is far less than what I have earned up until a few months ago, but I was making full payout and then some every single month for the most part, so this is a major drop.
Well I tried that trick too because hubpages earnings are literally zilch because of so low views the last few months. I'm roughly running 30% of views that I used to have. So I move strictly to just AdSense to try to get some earnings and there's not much of a difference: believe me
I recall a recent forum discussing whether it might be smart for HP to add one of those "please disable your ad blocker" messages found on many sites. Something to think about.
For it to be effective, the message would have to be a blocker. So a reader wouldn't be able to view an article unless they agreed. Some sites show the first couple of paragraphs as a teaser and if you try to scroll down to read more, the popup appears. By then the reader might be sufficiently engrossed to agree to the request.
At the end of last year I was making very decent money for my very few articles here. All of a sudden I'm earning a tenth of what I was. This month hasn't been great.
Aren't Google planning changes to Chrome that could prevent ad blockers from working? Could be good news for us.
I don't consider the low AdSense numbers to be HP's fault. It's everywhere and is due to advertisers more or less skipping January.
Also in Europe, the new EU standards … could be a contributing as well
It's all such a big giant now. I just don't know any more
I routinely only get 1 to 2 cents a day on adsense with a bump up every so often. In three years the number of times it's gone over a dollar in a single day I can count on one hand and I've accumulated a grand total of around $35. I've completely stopped thinking about adsense because even with 1000 views a day I doubt I'll live long enough to see a payout. I'm not clear on how adsense really works but when I look at reports there is almost nothing accounted for by CPM ads. Practically all the ads are CPC. I assume this means that with only one ad per article that given most people don't click and even if some do they may not click on that article, I won't really be able to make anything with adsense. So even though I'm getting around 350 - 450 impressions recorded per day, I guess impressions aren't getting me anything only clicks.
Actually, a slightly off topic question - when I look at Adsense on my computer it says I've earned $34 and change. When I look it up on my phone it says I've earned $42 and change. It's been different like this since I started checked it a couple of years ago but I never worried about it since neither have a chance of reaching payout anytime soon. Any ideas why there is this kind of discrepancy? Thanks.
If AdSense thinks activity is not valid they take it out your balance. They also take out funds for taxes I think. Check your Balance to see your true earnings.
TT2, I went into my adsense account recently and it said "We found your ad code on one or more sites that aren't on your Sites list. To avoid lost revenue, make sure you add all your sites to this list." I clicked Action and it gave me a small site that I had forgotten to add to the sites list. I couldn't actually figure out how to get all sites up as it would only show me one at a time - in fact there were a few and it seems that the Ad code no longer existed for those sites (I had a somewhat reduced list of adsense codes). I assume this means they implemented something recently that I missed in terms of having to have something registered to allow adsense on. Anyway, I went on to check the list of sites and below is what I get for Hubpages. I then went to look at one of my hubs and found that there was a blank space at the bottom of the hub with just the word 'advertisement'. I can't remember where the adsense ads are supposed to go (I have HP Ads turned on) but I think maybe there is only one. So I'm now wondering if adsense ads aren't actually showing on my hubs, just the HP Ads.If so, this might explain your issue.
In fact, I have just checked the number of pageviews on adsense for the last 30 days for hubpages.com and it is showing 16. OK so I don't get a lot on hp.com itself but I do get over 1000 views a month so that is confusing in itself!
I noticed a decrease at the beginning of the year, but last few days it has been back. As for how much from adsense revenue, if you want more I would suggest doing a better job searching terms and how to market it better. A little harder but I know someone that gets around 300 views a day and makes a few dollars a day from adsense.
HubAds have always been better. They did better when they were introduced and do even better now.
I think the decline in AdSense earnings, which I've experienced too, is to do with the layout changes.
I know you're pretty good at this stuff too. Can you tell me why a different Pub ID is coming up in a couple of my articles and there are other articles that do not have the pub ID at all there is no association with some of the patients lounge and hubpages at all with my Pub ID in it.

Hi everyone. I've been putting some work in writing quality articles the last few months, all my articles are approved as featured but earnings are still pretty low. I have earned a total of $1+ in two months, and with that speed it will take years to reach checkout. I have both Hubpages and...

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...

Is google adsense only paying for clicks and not impressions? My adsense earnings have almost gone down to nothing. Has anyone else experienced this?

So, since Panda (or since the HP ads thing came out and I signed up for it... I can't really tell which given I'm mainly too lazy to look very hard into it)... my earnings have all transferred to HP ads and only a trickle of Adsense.Do HP ads populate INSTEAD of adsense, but not totally (since I am...

Last year was awful in many ways, and that includes for hubbers. January 2020 started off with particularly low CPM's and therefore lower earnings. There's always a crash after the Christmas/New year period, but it was worse than usual. Never mind, we thought, at least we will get more Amazon sales...

I was up to 95.16 on my adsense and then all of a sudden it stopped, but I don't remember making any changes - Since it is so close to the threshold, can someone please check my account to see why it is not registering hits any more? How can I fix this? I really appreciate your help.
