Payout for new HP ad program!

    I'm almost at payout with the new HP ad program, so I'm pretty psyched! This isn't a "nanny-nanny-boo-boo" for those of you who aren't enrolled yet. I hope it gives you something to look forward to, since everyone will be onboard before long. Be happy that it works!

    Since I joined HP, I've always enjoyed learning of the success of my fellow hubbers. It gave me hope and provided me with inspiration and the impetus to continue. I sincerely hope that this post has the same effect!

      Awesome, what's the threshold by the way?

      I no longer post about the Ad program, as a result of all the "nanny nanny boo boos".

          $50?  Really?  Wow, I'm nearly there already and I only enrolled a week ago! 

          Until I saw this thread, I hadn't even bothered to check how much I had.  Now I know why my Adsense earnings had taken a dive - here I was, thinking it was the algo change, but it looks like some of it is just being transferred to the new program.

            Last weekend my AdSense had taken such a dive I actually started looking at what was happening on the new program, pretty much out of horror and desperation.  lol  I've been watching it since then, mostly to get a reading on any trend that may start to appear.

            Neither have I.  Apparently HP feels okay with using the new ad program on our hubs during their share of the time, even if we cannot.  Probably still testing, but I'm sure they aren't keeping the money though!  lol

                After 9 months, why do you now decide that HP cant place ads on your writings 40% of the time?

                  oh, so this 60:40 thing is a time share thing, not a taking a percentage of what Google ads get?  Never did fully understand it

                    sorry, the Hp ads are not making up significant losses for me, so I am generally irritable at the moment.. Yes, it is an impression share system. Which is preferable to a revenue share system as Hp does not act as a middle man under the impression share system.

                    60% of the time the ad blocks contain adsense ads with your id in them and you profit 100% from what they may earn (the same with amazon/ebay and kontera if you place them in the hub) and the tracking and payment is done under a direct relationship between you and adsense.


                    If it was revenue share than Hp would have to collect all the money and then redistribute it.


                    The Hp ads pretty much is a revenue share model and wont be directly "keyword" targetted, but perhaps certain advertisers appear in certain categories or high traffic hubs only. By Hp doing a revenue share or per impression share they are opening up a revenue stream that normally would not be accessible to smaller publishers

                They have always used whatever ads they wish during their time, Bailybear. During your time you are stuck with whatever Google decides to display or your own Amazon ads.  Fair?  Depends on your perspective!  lol

                  Baileybearposted 6 years ago in reply to this

                  I've obviously been confused this whole time about how it works.  The ads aren't really keyword things either?

                  1. Randy Godwin profile image92
                    Randy Godwinposted 6 years ago in reply to this

                    60% of the time the ad clicks go to you.  40% of the time goes to HP.  There is no 60-40 earnings share like one is led to believe at first glance.  HP may even be making much more on their 40% of the time than you are on your 40%.  There is no way to know for sure.

                    The same goes for the Amazon sales.  If someone spent $10,000 buying items on your hub you would not get a cent unless the products were bought during your time share.  Or the cookie was still in effect and the buyer purchased within the time limit.

                    You rolls the dice and takes your chances!  smile

    Love your spirit, Habee. I'm liking what I'm seeing from the HP ad program. Where AdSense is dropping off for me, HP is kicking in. No "nanny nanny boo boo" ought to be in the head of any Hubber. This is a good opportunity that HP made for its members.

    I'm thrilled for you, but you've got 755 Hubs to my 64. Waaaah! I'm not going to see a payout from HP for a while.

    Congrats Holle!  And even though I'm not in the program It still has its uses.  I don't have to right click on ads to see if my time share is in effect.  If I see one of those bright Kroger ads on the Hub, I know It ain't mine!  lol lol lol

  17. sunforged profile image70
    sunforgedposted 6 years ago

    Hp has been testing the "new ad program" for quite a long time. Ad networks besides adsense have been displaying in the hub impression share for as long as I have been here.

    The only thing "new" about it is that they are offering the alternative of sharing this revenue stream with their writers now.

    I know Hp ads have been getting mostly rave reviews, but I made approximately double in adsense what the Hp adshare has averaged so far.

    Thats at an average comparison of what I would expect per 1000 views in adsense compared to HP ads. That doesnt take in account any damage that the less attractive and untargeted nature of the ads may  be having on first impressions and in turn loss of product sales.

    If you did well on adsense, you probably are not missing out on anything. If you previously did not do well on adsense then the hp ads will probably earn more than you are accustomed to.

    To me "well" would be at least a penny per view.


    Those "kroger" ads are specifically irritating and out of place on almost all hubs. It bothers me specifically because Im not sure about the purpose of the recent product restriction placement and amount rules.

    If its was intended for "visitor impression" than allowing ugly ads in the other networks seems like a waste of my time to correct product placement to new guidelines. Since it doesnt get much uglier than the Kroger ads and im sure it has ugly stepsisters waiting in the shadows.

    If the reason for the guideline change was something more technical that the datacrunchers figured out - and the outgoing afflinks are a problem , then the capsules should just be blocked from being crawl-able. Easy peasy solution.

    I hate reworking old content just to see new mistakes appear in the sidebars that I cant control.

    1. Randy Godwin profile image92
      Randy Godwinposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      I had similar thoughts when reading the new hub layout guidelines.  The ads indeed look cheesy and make the page look lots worse than the Amazon ads.  I suppose it depends on how you want others to view your work, whether seriously, or simply as a way to earn money.

      But I suppose if one doesn't enable the program the ads would still appear on HP's share of the time like they do now, even if the writer is not allowed to be in the program.  Not sure I like it much at this point.  smile

      lrohnerposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      I'm making more on the HP ads than I did with AdSense, but I didn't even notice the Kroger ads until I read your post. And it makes sense now. Many of my hubs are food-related -- exactly the type of consumer that would click on a Kroger ad. Habee does a lot of food-related hubs too.

      I'm surprised that a company like Kroger would take out any ad placement that's not geotargeted. They only have locations in something like half of the states. For them to invest in national advertising, either it's a dirt-cheap placement, or their online marketing manager is pretty new to the game. smile In any case, that means that only about 50% or less of my hub readers would ever click on that ad.

      1. Randy Godwin profile image92
        Randy Godwinposted 6 years ago in reply to this

        That could be it.  It seems to glare out at me from some of mine.  But I suppose they are meant to catch the eye.  I hope there aren't many of those type ads.  I wondered about the national thing too.  Perhaps only those in a certain part of the country sees them.  smile

      I do believe she means that she had passed over the $50 threshold to achieve payment.

      Payment is the second month after the money is accrued.
