Hubpages is going to offer a new revenue sharing program for hubbers from 3rd March. But is it true that the program would be open only for a few elite hubbers fir the first 3 months before its made accessible for everyone in June?
It would be nice if this were offered to all hubbers, here over a year and actively writing!
They will do, what he is saying is that it won't be fully live until June. Therefore, it will be opened up to the community in June. I don't see any reason why I or anybody else would get access prior to June, seeing as they already have their test group. I suspect that if Beta stage is successful they will throw open the doors and we can all make some money
Where did you get that information? If you have good reason to state so then maybe, otherwise who knows?
The only article that I read has stated that it has already been trialed and said nothing about 3 months of exclusivity.
Ultimately though, does it matter? They are likely to need to test it in order to provide the stats neccessary for a new ad sales team. How do you sell something until it is proven to work?
Well Ryan I am not saying its open only for 3 months. I said that it would be open only for few top hubbers for the first few months before its made accessible to all in June.
Yes, I get that, but where have you read this? You must have read it somewhere? If so, link please?
You got it sid, now share the link (its in one of the other forums) .. it says they tested (are testing) the program with a group of invited hubbers and will be rolling out sitewide at a certain date
I hardly see whats worth commenting on..
plus if the 60% increase is at hubber to hubber level id be impressed - if its based on the sitewide norm - I wouldnt even be able to buy milk
Here is where he got his info Ryan

Ok I came with the Link but Michael has already shared it. Thanks Michael.
To add to the topic...I think this may be a good ideal to start. HP can test this program to see how it works, work out the kinks, etc. It would be such a huge task to add site-wide. I would guess this is why it will be until June for a site-wide implementation.
I suspect that advertisers only commit to a trial period too, they aren't going to throw a huge ad budget at us if they don't see the results for themselves
Sid, if you are perhaps suggesting 'favouritism', and I'm not suggesting that you are but simple covering a few bases, I suspect that they would pick hubbers from a wide range of different topic areas and traffic rates in order to gauge a feel for how we will all benefit in general
In fact, those who agree to a trial are brave, seeing as it could have sent their earnings in the opposite direction
I am assuming your reply was meant for the OP with the term "Favoritism".
You make a good point about the possible bad effect of the program also.
Ryan, I never meant that keeping the program open for few top hubbers for the first three moths indicates 'favoritism'. Hubpages is a great site with some great hubbers like yourself, Mark Knowles, Susana S and many more. I was just wanting to make things clear before the ad program rolls out in the next2 days time.
Hi Sid, I wasn't necessarily assuming that you were, just covering that ground just in case
I suspect that me or you won't be joining until June, unless they phase in new members bit by bit. But, I am happy waiting a few months for that!
Who knows, we may not even want to. If it forces me into Kontera type ads or popups, I have no interest no matter what the monetary promise is.
Well Ryan, I am not joining the program till June for sure. But I would be surprised if you are not being offered the program right from Day one because for me you are one of the stars of Hubpages if not the all time best hubber.
Or should I say...This is where the information is. He may have read it or just heard about it from other Hubbers in the Forums.
Oh Ok, yeah same article that I read, I have had a few vodka and cranberries at the pub with friends so skim read
Well, it looks like the question is answered then doesn't it? Is it true? Probably, yes.
That's what happens, things get tested, those that are priviledged are sworn to secrecy and are happy to stay ssshhh because they are benefitting, simples
June isn't too long to wait, and if my earnings increased by half of the figures stated (30%) I would be a VERY happy man... as this would go someway towards bridging the gap in my recent hit.
I read the article they posted on Facebook, they already had it tested and their testers made about 50% revenue. However, on March 3rd they will open the program to a few chosen hubbers, then June it will be open for everyone of us.
Sorry Ryan I did post that, then pressed delete in case it looked like I was being 'off' about it. Been a long day, not the best time for me to come up with theories.
Seems like this Hupages ad program might be a good thing after all! I look forward to it, in fact I cannot wait, in fact I am sooo excited, hope the earnings kick in off it!
its me and Susana talking about it, but we just assume?? I don't really know in particular...
Here is a CNET article where Paul Edmondson is talking about the new HubPages Ad Program and the effects the latest Google update has had on HubPages.
I love the article's title: "HubPages' ad program: We're the anti-content farm"
Relache said, "I'm quite contented to stay and keep doing what I've been doing, especially with the new, in-house ad program. (disclosure: yes, I was/am part of the initial test group)"

I like to check Hubpages on breaks at work. Now, I can't access my Hub feed because a Hubber chose to write a Hub about drugs, and Hubpages hasn't caught onto it yet. My organization is pretty fair on what it blocks/allows. Usually blocks things about gun violence, cults, and drugs. They also only...

Hi fellow Hubbers! I've been hubbing here at HubPages since year 2010 and I just can't believe that I haven't earn anything from my published articles since then, not a single cent! There's obviously something wrong. Any ideas? Please help! Thanks.

Currently PayPal is the only payment method available for the HubPages Ad Program. In most countries, PayPal can only be used to send money. Funds in the PayPal account cannot be withdrawn by the PayPal account holders in those countries. In certain countries, PayPal cannot be used at all....
