    I was just wondering how many people are interested in the 500 invites sent out to sample the new adds available for a test run   and who has been invited.

    Who are one of the select few?  Care to reveal?

          Okay, I guess I read your post wrong. However, if it matters Katie, I already respect you, both as a writer and a woman. So, if Hubpages doesn't show you the love, then get back to me and we'll figure out what to do from there. tongue smile

      I'd invite you to do a whole lot more than just sample a few ads.

      The test run has been in place with 9 hubbers in a private beta since mid January. Now this is, I guess, a public beta.

      Quite possibly the 500 people includes the 9 hubbers, as I got invited again to the same account that was involved in the private beta.

      My wife got an invite too.

    Why do you say obvious Katie? - I got an invitation and I was very surprised - I thought perhaps it was because I am in UK and maybe they want to see how it does in different countries?

      If the Greeks had got their **** together, those darn Romans would never have taken them over.

      Nope, some elites didn't get invites. Anyway they're rolling out so lots more people should have invites within the next week or two!

    i got invited- and signed up - even though my revenue is marginal and then i got sad tonight when they told me they had suspended hub for irrelevant tags, title etc- have modified it - but feeling glum  cos its the first short story i ever wrote- i think they call it faction where a story is based on fiction!

    Never mind, I am sure it will sort out

    1. katiem2 profile image58
      katiem2posted 7 years agoin reply to this

      It sure will its just a process.  I wish they'd flag all the junk hubs on here and leave little worry to good content like yours.  Keep your chin up those category flags are a common trigger and an easy fix.

        i have never had one before, so it was like being taken into the heads office and told off

    I was invited and will see how things pan out with it.....Everyone who didn't get an invite will get their turn, Rome wasn't built in a day....I think it was in an afternoon or something!

    i think it is better to get people on in batches rather than have the whole system overloaded and crash

    You can find out if you have been invited by going to your account page --> Earnings -->Affiliate Settings. If you see a space marked HubPages Ad Program in your list, you can sign up there.

      Noticed that all there Rochelle, but when I clicked it said 'You are not eligible to enter'

      Hmpf!

        Neither Tom or I were picked this time around...we get the same thing you do! sad

        It would've been nice if one of us had--especially Tom, since he's been on here so long, and has a bunch more hubs than I do--just so we could see how it goes, since we've never been too successful with Google Adsense... smile

        I guess I'm going to have to remember that saying that I always drilled into my kids' heads while they were growing up..."Patience is a Virtue"...lol 

        Now I know why they hated hearing that!!!  lol

        Ooops. I happened to run across that-- and it worked for me. I got an invite a little later. I shouldn't have assumed.

    Thing is ,since they ,Hubpages already reported success with their trail run ,why not just open it to everyone now?
