Under 3rd party access and hubpages.com it says under host's share of revenue, "0% of content revenue." What does that mean?
The revenue made on your share of the impressions is 100% yours.
HubPages doesn't take any of your revenue.
The ad views are split (60/40, your favour) not the revenue.
So HubPages takes 0% of your revenue.
Thanks for answering darkside.
Crazy confusing though. My share should be 100% if it's my share.
The impressions...if google pays on impressions I didn't know that. I thought google paid when the impression was clicked on.
Ad views...is that the same as impressions? I don't get how or why I would have anything to do with what is viewed.
Am I'm making this perfectly worse?
I have repeatedly said that you are not the host. You are the publisher, HubPages is the host. Since the host's share is 0%, yours is 100%.
Page impressions: 1 such generated each time the page is loaded, no matter the number of ads;
Ad units: Variable amount of Adsense units per hub. You get paid when one of these ads get clicked on (provided they appear on your share of the page impressions).
You do get 100%. What its saying to you in that page is HubPages gets 0%.
thisisoli has given an excellent explanation.
I was confused about this too - thanks for clearing it up darkside!
Basically I think what WE is trying to say is that - 60% of the time that ads are shown or 60% of the ads shown on your hubs they are ads in which you earn 100% of any revenue earned (100% of the clicks made at that time because it is using your google adsense code/id) the other 40% of the time or ads shown are ones that the revenue goes strictly to Hubpages (so what is shown 40% Of the time are ads using hubpages google adsense code and not yours).
Just for the record I am not personally aware of what the ad share is here on Hubpages as I've really just began to get into it. I believe however that is what WE was trying to get across. Does that make sense? I really am not trying to confuse you any more!
A qualified guess, nothing more:
Provided Adsense has been activated, you get 60% of the page impressions and any associated revenue; HubPages gets 40% of the page impressions and any associated revenue. Since you get 100% of the revenue from your page impressions - the only thing that you Adsense account records,- it follows that HubPages (host) gets 0%.
it says 0% but it doesn't say who is 0 and who is 100. So I read it as I'm the one that gets 0. But you said that revenue is 100% for page impressions. I'm not sure I understand that...but that's nothing new. Do you mean I would receive 100% of revenue because someone clicks on one of my links? That wold make sense because I made the url link. Right?
My understanding was that you are the publisher, HubPages the host running the ads.
About how sharing between yourself and HubPages works, I wrote this detailed explanation in a recent forum discussion:
Just to simplify things here.
You get 100% of your 60% of add impressions.
That 60% is because your ad code gets displayed on hubs 60% of the time (the other 40% is given Hubpages Code, that is there cut of the profits basically).
Hope you get to grips with it, trust me you will get your fair share

Hopefully someone from Hubpages HQ can look into this.I believe that those of us that are using a hosted account with Adsense are not getting any ad revenue on impressions from the niche sites.I base this on the fact that my daily impressions on Hubpages vs Adsense differ by a factor of about 100....

Well, not quite just me, as tested it by asking my boyfriend to have a look too, on his own computer.Some hubs have 4 Google Adsense blocks on them. Only 3 are allowed by Google Adsense program policies (plus 3 text link ads).Can HubPages' be banned from using Adsense, and all of us too,...
