    This isn't intended to make those still awaiting an invite jealous, but just to make your more EXCITED!

    Basically it almost matched in half a day my AdSense earnings for the WHOLE day.

    It's a great program, look forward to it smile

      At least your adsense is working!

      You get a new ad program and my adsense stops collecting data. Gotta love it!

      The good thing is, it is only going to improve! I like where Hubpages is headed.

      It's great to hear that the new ad program is delivering good results, let's hope it keeps steady on that front.

      Looking forward to trying it out myself some say.

      Yup. I signed up last night, and woke up to earnings in those few hours that exceeded my whole day at AdSense. smilesmilesmile

        Same here. I got in during the evening hours, only had 67 impressions overnight, and still made money. Very encouraging!

        On a sadder note, just as my traffic was starting to return, it went the other way and tanked even further that it had previously. I'm grateful that the ad program is here to help make up the loss!

        Is the program not going so well for you Mark?

        I'm not ruling out the bar job just yet Mark, Europe to come yet sad

        But, the eCPM was twice the rate of AdSense, if it carries on that way then for now (for now) it will recoup a large proportion of my lost earnings.

        I'm starting to see more google love. I just checked my traffic and is coming along, I'm happy to see increasing views again! I think it will happen with some hubs more easily than others.  I'm going to continue writing and focusing on content/information hubs.

        Great to hear that others are seeing quick results. smile

        And the ads are showing on everyone's hubs at least 40% of the time as far as I understand. They are nice looking ads.

        this is so cheesy, but march forth.. big_smile

    I am glad it is working out for you. I had similar experiences.  In an interesting note that may or may not be coincidence, the days following the official announcement of the ad program have brought even better returns than the month prior.  I don't know if it is the result of new advertisers signing up after the announcement or pure conjecture but if the numbers remain this high I don't care if I ever see Adsense revenue on this site again.

      Ironic, isn't it?  A few days after the Farmer Slap, Google is losing out on HP revenue...It won't make much of a difference to their bottom line, but it is symbolic.

      (I know it was completely coincidental, but well timed, nonetheless!)

        Now all we have to do is to get Edweirdo to make a HubPages/YieldBuild Search Engine (HPYBSE), and then forget Google all the way. lol

    If both you and hubpages are making so much money why not roll it out to every regular Hubber

    1. profile image0
      ryankettposted 12 years agoin reply to this

      It is going to be rolled out to every "regular" hubber, not that I consider myself anything other than "regular", remember that they only BETA tested for 2 months, probably still doing that testing now, first test with 9, then 500, then 2000, etc.

      What you probably fail to appreciate is that 500 invites means 500 tax forms to peruse, approve and store. There is a certain degree of manual work, probably with one or two people doing that work.... 200,000 tax forms rolling in overnight is not going to make the process of getting everybody in the program quicker than it will be already....

  18. barryrutherford profile image80
    barryrutherfordposted 12 years ago

    A appreciate your comment re tax forms.  What I meant by regular is those like myself who post on average at least one huba week and have done so for three years.  More I would say a loyal partner.  But I can wear that...

    In the meantime if this is meant to be a fair roll out then Hub Pages could pool the earnings you make between now & June & share those earnings with the rest of us because you were not able to process those forms etc till then.  This would help make up for the losses we have with the Google Algorythm adjustment,

  19. profile image57
    rieomposted 12 years ago

    I wonder how HubPages chose who to use as the first wave.  Then I wondered if you needed to have a lot of hubs to be offered these new ads, which excludes me right now.

    Rising Carenposted 12 years ago

    Well as long as we're all eventually invited, I don't mind waiting.

    Obviously they can't invite everyone because of:
    - tax forms. It takes time to process (and I'm guessing also verify) the information.

    - Adjustments. I'm sure HP tested this with some beta testers, but it's not the same thing as having everyone on the site. They wouldn't want to accidentally end up paying users too much because of a miscalculation, so doing it in waves makes it easier to analyze how the money's going and how to adjust.
