    If I'm able to remove them, will my hubs show it anyway using the hubpages account? Thank you

      Go to My Account, Earnings, Configure HP Adsense then Deactivate!

    Were you invited to the HP Ad program? they will only show if you have it activated otherwise your Adsense ads will show.
    Unless you selected no adverts while composing a new hub.

    HP can do whatever they want with the ad space during their 40% of impressions. But if you stop the HP ads for your 60%, they should not show up during that time. They would show AdSense instead.

      I see, thanks man. Do you know how to disable them? I only earned 5 dollars for 2 weeks that they're on and my adsense dropped tremendously. I think i'm better off with adsense.

        Go to your affiliate section, as though you are checking earnings. You should be able to disable Hubpages Ad Program directly from the page.

    I am certainly considering dropping the Ad Program.  My AdSense has tanked as well but it is hard to say if traffic is not the major determining factor or the fact that it is April.  April of 2010 was my worst month of the year too.

    I am now on Hubpages Ad program, and of course the Adsense earnings have dropped dramatically, mainly because they are displayed on the Hubs far less of the time. What I will say is I am now earning more per day than I was relying on Adsense, only difference is that now I will be paid by Hubpages through Paypal, instead of through Adsense. I think the mistake many are making is that they thought their Adsense earnings would be much the same when they agreed to the Hubpages program, only they would get money from Hubpages too, but of course this would be impossible if the adverts from Adsense were on display so much less. Overall I am finding I am better off on the Hubpages Ad program (so far at least).

      I disagree.  The best (monthly) ecpm I ever saw with adsense was only about $10.  I'll take HPads any time.

        I think the trouble with HPads is that the layout for them doesn't work with Adsense so well. So those of us who try for Adsense only find our click-through rate have tumbled.

        For the longest time, HPads paid me better then Adsense alone, because my more popular hubs had a lower cpm or whatever it's called.

        If you only write about topics with higher paying keywords, Adsense might still be better than Adsense plus HPads.

        To go from 1-2 clicks per 100 views to 1-2 clicks per 1000, hurts. No matter how well HPads are paying, it cannot compensate.

          You are absolutely right, I think about writing about topics that produce high$ ads.  I don't and thus HPads is far superior.

    I found the reverse.  I think it depends on a lot of different factors.
