Hi, if I can ever get Google AdSense to let me add back HubPages...when it was working supposedly, the status said "Active" My stats for the hub I put in, said over 100 page views, but going to Google AdSense it said only 12 views. This is my HubPages home views count, not my article views count. Is this the way it is supposed to be, shouldn't it have been the many more views of the article?
For Amazon, all it will say in the Affilates section in HubPages setup, the status of "set." Shouldn't that say "Active" as the Adsense did when it was working?
I just am confused.
Amazon is fine as 'set', for some strange reason the terms are not the same for the affiliate programs. As for ad sense, I get confused by it all the time! I hear that using analytics is the best way to go for tracking traffic and what it is doing (analytics is confusing too, but hey the resident guru's here seem to know what they are doing ). I am sure that someone will come along with a better insight then I have but I thought I would try n help anyway . Welcome to HP by the way! Hope your online writing adventure here is more fun then a barrel of monkeys!
Thank you Kirsten. I was just confused because on some view of the stats for the hub, it says "Revenue potential--$$$" as if it should have been looked at, and it was. Then the AdSense said it had only been viewed 12 times when it was really looked at over 100 times.
I feel good to be here and thanks for the welcome.
You have only one hub and have been here only two days. If you are getting that much traffic already, my hat's off to you! Welcome to Hub Pages!
How do you know it was looked at over 100 times?
Google Analytics is a better gauge of your traffic. HubPages counts your own views and each time you edit the hub. That's while you'll notice you may have a dozen views before you ever publish a hub. So, many of those 100 are probably your own views.
Another difference is the timeframe. Hubpages runs on a rolling 24 hour period. Google Analytics runs on a day (not sure what hours its day runs though).
The more you write, the less you'll worry about these things.
Welcome to HubPages!
Thank you. So I was bumping up the "stats" thing! Good, I won't pay as much attention to it. Thanks for the welcome. Just this thing where in the HubPages sign in and such, it encourages "monetizing" at least somewhere when I was signing up, I saw this.
I have a theory as to why adsense is "active" while the others are "set".
For adsense, hubpages will directly get your information for you, thus ensuring that it is correct and thus "active"
For the others, you put it in yourself (and thus could make a mistake) so hubpages doesn't know for a fact if it is active (since you could have made a mistake), but they do know that you set it.
That's my theory ^^
Focus on the writing.... Too True!
I have older hubs only now drawing traffic, and once I stopped trying to figure google ad sense out I am now finally seeing clicks daily (they aren't worth much but they are finally steady, somehow)
It is a pretty steep learning curve, just finding out what to write about that will actually be read!

I have noticed that upon removing Kontera from my hubs that my AdSense earnings went up. Kontera seemed pretty useless even when I was earning with it because the click were not really all that profitable. One AdSense click seems to be worth more than a Kontera click even when it's like one of the...

I've never generated a cent from these two programs and they've also never really worked properly. Constantly my adsense claims its active then I'm not approved, then it just mucks up everything. I'm not making any money on hubs as it is but this isn't helping anything.

Hello Hubbers,Just a quick question for the more experienced hubpage authors:For maximum revenues, do you recommend AdSense and Amazon together on your commercial hubs or *just* AdSense alone?From what I read it seems the bulk of revenues are via AdSense, but I could use some direct input and...

My Adsense earnings this month from HubPages was only 40% of what I normally earn with HubPages and for the first time in several months I did not make a payout in Amazon this month. However, the saving grace was some of my blogs which earned double of what they normally were earning and the...

Hi,I'm new to hubpages and I haven't created a hub yet. My question is: Should I create a hub and then apply for Adsense, Ebay and Amazon or can I apply without creating a hub?. Thanks

What determines how much you get per click in Adsense? Is it the topic, or some weird witchy-brew no-one really understands?I ask because 2 things have confused me, looking just now at my account, for the first time in a while.my Easter Eggs hub has been getting lots of traffic and a few clicks...
