My Google Adsense account got banned a month ago and while I was sad I was a little consoled by the fact I could still earn from the Hubpages earning programme.
However, I just read on a thread that with a banned Adsense account, you can earn but will be unable to cash out.
This is disheartening and I really hope it isn't true.
I still see impressions and little cents in my account.
As far as I am aware, you cannot earn anything at HP without a valid Adsense account.
"Google AdSense is required in order to participate in the HubPages Ad Program and the HubPages Amazon Program, but you can still earn without it using your own Amazon Associate ID."

That's sad. I guess it won't make much sense for me to continue writing on here, seeing as I won't be earning from the ad programme.
I tried Amazon affiliate last year, but it got closed down when I didn't make any sale during the 90-day probation period. I'll concentrate on my blog instead.
Thanks for the response.
This is very alarming. My Google Adsense got closed down a few months ago because they could not see any activity for 6 months. I had been writing all the while on HubPages, so I contacted the team. The feedback I got from HubPages was not to worry. They would look into it. This reminds me that I haven't heard anything. Maybe my time is also up on Hubpages.
Fear is indeed a part of the online writing experience these days. No way around it. I'll plod along until if/when the ax falls from whatever source. Then I guess that will be that. It was a good run.
About two weeks ago, I received a note from Adsense regarding Letterpile.com "These sites (Lettlepile is the only one listed.) haven't shown any ads for at least 4 months. If they remain inactive they'll need to be reviewed again."
I emailed Team@HubPages and this is their response: "I apologize for the inconvenience. We are still in communication with AdSense to work out this issue. As long as you are enrolled in the HubPages Ad Program you will continue to earn. Around 98% of earnings come from the HubPages Ad Program and around 2% comes from AdSense."
I suggest using the help link to ask hubstaff for a definitive answer
I contacted a star and was told I would still earn from my hubpages ads and Affiliates if I have those enabled.
Its good to know I can still earn money here, but its a bit discouraging knowing my earnings will be a bit less than its supposed to be (not that it was that great to start with. Lol)

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...

I have applied the adsense account through hubpages.However, I know that adsense won't approve an account so easily, I wonder if my hubs still earn ads revenue before adsense's approval?I have read the FAQ and it claimed that even with no adsense, writers can still earn through hubpage earning...

Hopefully someone from Hubpages HQ can look into this.I believe that those of us that are using a hosted account with Adsense are not getting any ad revenue on impressions from the niche sites.I base this on the fact that my daily impressions on Hubpages vs Adsense differ by a factor of about 100....

So I've been a Hubpage and Squidoo writer for the past 5 years. Recently, my 185 Squidoo hubs were transferred over to Hubpages and to start earning money, I applied for the Google adsense program about 2 weeks ago. It appears that my account was approved for a couple days and then I...

Is it right for ads from Adsense to be on display on hubs of a person with disabled Adsense account? It somehow hurts to see those ads, knowing you cannot earn from them anymore. Or is the community benefiting somehow from them?
