    I have to say this... since the new look went up, I've seen a distinct and marked drop-off in Hub AdSense earnings.  Anyone else seeing a similar response?

      may be u try url channels for your hubs...
      i read in some adsense forums that adding channels may hike the ctr some times..just give it a try..

    having just returned from vacation i have just checked my adsense earnings for the last few days and i can honestly say they are almost similar to what they were before the changes neither up or down although i have noticed that since i went away i have had over 14000 visitors in one week which is almost double what it was this time last week......have fun  jimmy

    Well, it's been the better part of a week, and my AdSense on HubPages is clearly down about 80%.  Given that's been growing up until this point, I have to say it's disappointing.  I was about to do a write-up on HubPages for another web site, but now I'm gonna hold off and see if I can figure out what's up.

      I checked your account Relache, and your Adsense Status was unassociated, which meant you weren't receiving any impression share.  I set the status back to 'Active' a few minutes ago, so you should see things pick back up.

      Unforunately, we had a bug in our user processing script that deactivated Adsense for some of the small number of users that were not associated with HubPages through the AdSense API (but had just entered there publisher id).  This problem is fixed, and all the affected users are back active.  My apologies.

    Thanks, Paul!  I'd checked my settings after the update, but nothing had seemed out of place to me.

    Yes since the new look, my adsense earning dropped also, I think they remove the higher earning ads.

    To be honest I prefer the old look of hubpages.

    in my case i don't see any drastical changes but earnings are a bit lower than the previous version...today when i visited one of my hub i was very much annoyed to see ebay ads blocking google ads which is the sole revenue maker of my hubs..i suggest that google ad link unit should be placed in the side bar ..otherwise if placed in the middle of text use horizontal link unit rather vertical one...if the ad placement is n't good the ctr may decrease so much..bcoz ads should be blended as per the page ..smile
