Except for maintaining some articles, I have taken a break from HubPages the last couple of years. A month ago I came back with a vengeance by writing one article a week. That's my goal for as long as I can maintain it, as long as I have relevant topics to discuss.
The question I have for the community is if there is anything new with HubPages or the online writing industry I should be aware of? I read a bit on Medium, but my only experience with that site is that someone stole one of my articles and placed it on that site. Luckily the DMCA went through so I expect it to be resolved.
There are about a million things different about the online writing industry But I'm back to HP after about 7 year break and it is pretty similar from what I can remember. I never wrote here for adsense or affiliate ads in the past, I just wanted to, so I don't know if any of that is the same. I did just learned that I can't size a photo, or left/right margin a photo as I could in the past which isn't ideal.
I'm back too, after a longer break than you, and I haven't found anything substantially different. They seem to be even more sensitive about Amazon - I used a couple of Amazon capsules, making sure to include a long personal recommendation, and they still got snipped. I put the products in again using a text link and they got approved.
The only thing to be aware of is that the Adsense program has been closed down, so all earnings come through the HubPages Earnings Program.
I had the same thing happen with my Amazon capsules, so I basically won't use them anymore.
Adsense is gone huh? That's a real shame. I didn't earn much from it, but I always earned something.
Thanks for the reply.
If you've got a bit of a balance in your Adsense account and don't plan to use it anywhere else, you can apply to close it, and they'll send you the balance. I think there is a minimum threshold but it's far lower than the payout threshold.
Given all of the problems we're having recently with obtaining data from Amazon ads via the HubPages Earnings Program, perhaps closing down the Adsense program was a mistake. I wonder if Adsense is having the same reporting problem that we're experiencing as we rely upon HubPages to report our Amazon ads earnings? Or, is Adsense just gone completely and no longer supported by Amazon?
I'm confused. Why do you think Amazon and Adsense have anything to do with each other?

I will try in short because I explored whole day about HubPages and I still need some confirmation how to proceed on best way if possible?Before 2 years I lost AdSense because of stupid reasons like wrong keywords (I know, I was rookie) and since it was impossible for me to check all blogs + posts...

I seem to have come to HP just before all the changes. I have put in almost F/T hours on the days I write my hubs. I've read whole books, not only the ones I review, but for material for my hubs. I think what I write is well written and informative. I kept hoping as I got more readers, the money...

Someone told me that they thought the following hub of mine:http://hubpages.com/hub/High-End-Acoust … latpickersHad a lot of potential, and that I should submit it here. So I'm doing so, and hopefully I'm doing so correctly. I haven't been hanging out in the forum, but I think I...

Last month, and in other recent months, my Amazon earnings are almost twice as much as my Ad Program earnings, yet, every month, I get notices from Hubpages saying that they removed Amazon capsules from my articles. I add them back in and they take them back out, and so the dance continues. I am...
