    On every hub there are 5 ads. I know only 3 can be google from our ad sense but what are the other 2 (sometimes 3) ads?

    Are these extra ads that publishers get no money from the clicks there when its our 60% turn of the impressions, or does Hubpages now have some ads that stay on for them to make money 24/7?

    Just wondering,

      hp has always tested diff ad networks on THEIR share of impressions ... looks like dynamo right now?

      and they are allowed more ad capsules than a normal publisher..if you are not logged in you will see 5 google ad blocks

        Well I just want to make sure they aren't adding extra dynamo you said? ads to Hubbers impression time - I would think that dishonest and unfair (unless once they approve of it we can make accounts and get the share big_smile).

    i think they use hp as the guinea pig for developing the yieldbuild system

    ive seen at least 4 distinct networks on their share - msn ads, dynamo and those annoying slide overs ..plus another i cant recall the name

    hubbers always bring it up and hp always responds its on their impression

    I am pretty sure Hubpages don't cheat us tongue

    More than 3 Google adverts can display on Hubpages at once by the way, the 3 unit limitation is only for standard adsense users.
