I have never switched from HP Ad system to Google Adsense. I might be missing the boat by not going to strictly Google Adsense. Has anyone done it and had success, or did it and there was no difference? If I switch, is it easy to get back to the HP Ad program? Is it scary, or a stupid thing to do?
I make much more from the HP ad program vs. Adsense. I have tested this by switching to Adsense for several months.
I switched last year for several months and had great success, but then Adsense started having glitches, so I switched back. Since the merge with Maven my earnings are more or less the same as they were with Adsense. Try it for a week or so and see how you do. If you're happy, stay...if not, switch back.
It's very easy to switch back and forth between the two. You just use the configure button in Earnings - settings.
I've tried the switch and for me the HubPages ad program is way better than AdSense alone. However, it depends on your articles and the type of traffic you get. Some hubbers have found that AdSense is better. The only way you'll know what works for you is to try the switch. You have very little to lose. My only tip is be patient and keep the change for at least a fortnight before deciding which system is right for you.
Good luck - keep us posted.
Switching is easy as Beth says. I personally find the HP ads better, many have reported this, but there is a decent number of people who say Adsense is better.
I find HP's program much better too. My AdSense earnings do not even reach half of what I get from HP's ad program.
I have tried it a couple of times. I always end up back on the HP ad program. The earnings were not a lot different overall, but they have more dramatic ups and downs from day to day. Some days I'd earn $10, but lots of days I'd earn only a penny or two. You only earn when somebody clicks an ad.
If you're not earning much on HP right now, you don't have much to lose. Sometimes, if my Adsense is near payout, I switch over just long enough to get it.
I have been using AdSense only for some months. I am switching back to the HubPages program as I was doing better with it. I get more consistent earnings with the HubPages ad program. Even if the earnings are small and from low views.
Hi Kenna, that's what I meant. When I'm fully on AdSense, my earnings aren't even half of what I get from HP's program.
Hubads pays higher percentages because it meets the volume requirements.
Psyche, what does "volume requirements" mean?
In many categories if you make more sales you get a higher percentage affiliate payment. Hubads makes us all one user, with massive sales, so we always get the top rate.
Okay. Thank you. Don't you think there is competition?
You are referring to Amazon ads. Kenna is asking about the HP Ad program vs Adsense and not individual affiliate code vs shared with HP, right?
Brandon, Yes. I think Psyche is referring to Amazon ads. "Affiliate" payment.
Thanks for raising this. It has made me open up my account and check. With the help of your comments and an earlier discussion below, I feel like I am slowly getting a clearer picture of how things work. It takes a while (for me at least) to fit the Hub Pages jigsaw together. Now I just need to crack on and generate some traffic.
Kenna, it depends on topic I think and also season. If you write articles that advertisers really want their ads to be seen on you can do very well with Adsense. If not, you won't earn butkus. I did extremely well with Adsense but what bothered me was that every so often they'll stop paying for a week or so due to some issue ore another. This represents a sizable loss in income. You don't see this with HP. Also, now that HP has merged with Maven, in most cases earnings have increased significantly.
My HP articles are generating pretty good, right now. I am inclined to wait for a week or so before I try it.

What earns you more, Adsense or the Hubpage Ad Program?I have been reading over some previous questions and answers and I got to wondering which ad program is currently paying better, or is running both best? I know it can vary, but if you have any math to go with it that would be great.Right now...

Hello! I've seen past discussions on this, but they are from more than a year ago, so I thought I'd see what people think about it now.I've noticed that I make hardly anything on Google AdSense and haven't gotten a payout for several months. I do pretty well on HPAD and am wondering if I will do...
