    My AdSense earnings for 2 years are very low compared to what I've earned from HP earnings. So I wish to give all the ad spaces to HubPages earnings program. Is it possible?

      If you signed up for the HP earnings program you have already given all ad spaces to that program.  They will use them as they see fit, and that includes a limited number of ads from Google Adsense.

      You will probably be punished for even thinking about cutting Google out of the loop. G always needs a taste.

      Dear Rochelle:
      I send you two emails about a week ago and have not received any response.
      My emails were dealing with for you to tell me How to Write a Successful Hub and just read the email to see more.

      Hi, friends. I will be brief. I need your help, any help. I am talking about my lack of interest in my hubs which feature Amazon items. I have used every slice of advice from HP and my hubs do not get featured because of ONE thing: Spammy Things. These two words are in emails from HP that say Your Article Will Not be Featured.
      So if you are a hubber with thick skin and have had success with Amazon hubs
      would someone PLEASE send me some simple pieces of advice so I can write
      hubs that meet HP guidelines and will not see that Spammy thing.
      Thanks a Lot.

        I have found your e-mail messages and am afraid I do not have much advice to offer other than what has already been given. Sorry I make it a rule not to respond to private emails from HubPages. I  am not offfeded  or annoyed by your messages, but prefer to keep communication in the forums. Also my husband sometimes uses the same account for business and prefers that the email address not be shared.

        I am not the best person to give advice on this subject, I can only repeat some of the things others have said.

        First, I think the advice the editor gave was good. I do not think it was meant to be taken personally at all. It was direct, yes, but I think it was directed at improving your approach.

        Your "Amazon articles" clearly read as advertisements. I would change any headline titles that mention Amazon or the product name directly.   I setting up your articles this way you are directly competing with Amazon, which we all know is futile. If I am looking to buy something on Amazon, I go directly to the Amazon site. I am not likely to go online looking for an outside article to find the item.

        A little more subtlety should be applied.  I try to make my "selling" articles as informational as possible, offering as much useful information to the reader as I can... and then --perhaps-- if it seems to apply-- adding an Amaazon link to a product as if to say in effect: "hey, by the way ... this might be helpful."

        You mentioned my refrigerator buying hub, for instance. It has one of those "afterthought" ads near the end for items that might help keep the frige organized.  If people are shopping for a 'frige, they might also like these little containers.

        Look for ways to add your links in ways that seem natural and not obtrusive. Avoid and remove links that are taking people to Wikipedia for definitions, (especially for well known terms), is not helping you. Make sure your link is going directly to a product that you think the reader might be interested in.

        I noticed that you may have missed some opportunities to ad an Amazon link in some hubs. (and I would generally use the link, not the capsule. ) Right now I am thinking about the cummerbund and the spats. Now I know  that selling these particular items is a longshot, BUT if people are curious enough about them they MIGHT go to Amazon to just to look, and they MIGHT buy something else while they are there. I think you have other hubs which have similar opportunities. It might not help much, but you won't know unless you try.

        I think this is an inexact 'science' and also  involves some luck. No one can really say " do this, and that will happen".
        I think there are some things you can do, or refrain from doing, that MAY improve your chances for success.

        Do you have some articles that are bringing sales now? If so, give them a good look and find out what works for you.

        Good luck and best wishes.

          Hi, Rochelle:
          My sincere thanks to you for your explanations and reply. And yes, your insight of Amazon and hubbing made a lot of sense to me. Thanks so much. And I think that I can follow your tips as best that I can.
          Take care and God bless you for your time. I hope that something good happens to you today.

    When you opt for the HP Ads program, you still have one or two ads from Adsense that show up. You will, therefore, continue to see impressions and some clicks on Adsense. There is no way to have every single ad be from the HP Ad program.
