i think changes for peoples who just have adsense is good but changes for peoples who are also part of hubpages ad program don't look such good.As there is only one adsense unit left.It is sure going to make big drop in adsense earnings.I think it would be better if it have top 3 ads from adsense and then hubpage ad program ads should come.that way it will not make much decrease in adsense earnings Or i would say older layout for the peoples who are also part of hubpage's ad program was better.
Yes I get you now! When I am logged out I can see 'all ad blocks' as described in above diagram. When I am logged in I can see 'all ad blocks... with the exception of the top banner ad' I have no idea why ??? Is that clearer?? :
My only question is when can I get the HP ad program? Will it be rolled out sooner because of the Google changes? Is it still in a experimental/beta phase, or pretty definite now what's happening with the ads? (Oops, that's more than one question, I know!)
Technology ? Show me any alternatives for yieldbuild that are available in the market.
Dude, this is not a wordpress or free CMS hosted site. Hubpages contains consistently tweaked custom code. Go to archive.org and watch progress of this custom CMS from the very beginning. Sitemap queries are not supposed to follow the same URL structure that you see on other free CMS.
Ha! Would you choose a one off payment of $7 per article or several hundreds/thousands dollars per article over it's lifetime? If it's the first choice then I think that either you need a psychiatrist or you're skint and need the upfront money.
Are you for real?? All you need to know is simple maths to figure taxes. Sounds as though you have never worked for yourself before.
No one needs an accountant to sort out earnings, unless they would like to maximize deductions (or) just mearly have the certainty of validity of their totals by a licensed professional backing up their claim.
Though, while making thousands, one tends to hire accountants for conveneince.
Maybe read up on the successful writers on this site. Quite impressive.
This is a great site and community. I have various accounts here and also many of my own sites. I am full time self-employed online. As you have noticed this site has tightened the straps on their "quality control!" due to unfortunate abuse by unsavory types.
The unfortunate thing about great platforms is that when they have clout, leaches come to take advantage.... we won't have it any longer!
If this is a crappy site, then why are you here wasting your time?
HI Mr. Media - what's your beef with the deal here? Maybe you and me can get together and start an alternative going. I have a number of ideas for creating content in a top down theocratic and optimised logical methodology using only the latest drivers in linking strategies.
I reckon to pull in a couple of big ones each week doing this and you sound like just the sort of guy to have on board. I need technical knowhow and a can do positive vibe running through my organisation and if I throw some organic stuff in your direction we can make this work.
Who said we weren't making money? And if you write for AC, you need to check out their forums to see how bad it has gotten over there. $7.00? LOL! What idiot would sell an article for this low rate when it will make much more than that in a short while here if written well!
@Socialmedia101, helium is sweet awesome sheksy site that pays 10$ upfront and includes the article in revenue sharing queue as well. Why not try that ? By the way which five sites you think search engine likes the most ?
Why ? Your bank cashier don't count zeroes on check ?
I have got no click from last 1,500 search engine visits. Last 20 clicks brought me only 0.1$. I don't like the new layout at all. It doesn't look good. I don't understand how it looks more reader friendly than the earlier one [ads under title and a horizontal ad in the middle] that used to bring me much much better ctr and cmp. I think the Ads leader board on top of the hub making the readers hit the back button straight away.
I hope HP ads will cover it up and it already looks good to me.
I prefer the old adsense layout, and I think there should be an equal number of ads for google and hubpages program. For the past 5days that I activated the hubpages ad program my google adsense earning was greatly reduce to 1/4 and even less and even when you add my earning from hubpages ad program my previous earnings in adsense alone is much more. I hope you can bring back the old ad layout.
