    Hi there,

    I've linked my AdSense account to HubPages and it's showing as "Active" in my no problem there.

    However when I log into my AdSense account, it is showing 0% for "Host's Share of Revenue".

    Can anyone explain?

    Many thanks

      Where do you see this? I wasn't aware there was any way of checking on Adsense abotu this, only by refreshing the page and counting.

      It's under the Account Access tab.

    Hi guys,

    You can log into your AdSense account and see what revenue share each one of your accounts has. Get there via Account Access under the My Account tab.

    My WebAnswers account shows correctly but for HP all is see is are big fat zeros, nada, diddlysquat.

    If HP are the host then how do we get paid. That's what the AdSense link under my account/affiliate settings is for I would have thought.

    You get 60% of the ad impressions. HubPages the other 40% (unless there's a referrer involved).

    You get 100% of the revenue from clicks. So HubPages gets 0% of your revenue.

      Cool thanks for that!

      So anything more than 0% is bad for us, now I understand

        It's not a matter of it being good or bad. It will only ever be 0% for HubPages. It won't change.

        If you sign up to it's 50%. Because it's a 50/50 split on the revenue. Other sites that share revenue do the same. With HubPages it isn't about splitting revenue its about splitting page views.

          That's sort of true.

          We were given special permission to split revenue by alternating impressions as one of the first Google AdSense API Customers, mainly because they weren't quite ready to do the split through the API at the time that we launched.

          However, there are some advantages to doing the split through the API itself, the main one being that only the author's AdSense code will appear on their content.   Other nice advantages include being able to share revenue through AdSense for Mobile, and the ability to easily provide HubPages specific reporting for people.  At some point we will probably make the switch, but there are some complications we're going to have to work through, particularly around our url tracker program ...

    That's pretty cool, thanks for the tip! I never knew you could access that information.

    Ahh I see, yeah Darkside is right, Hubpages doesn't split revenue, merely advert impressions.
