and I don't mean in the positive - 26 cents!! and got it from my bukisa account. Haven't had a hubpages click in 2 or 3 days now. Last weekend I was at over $10/day after which was pretty good after fighting off the panda attack.
I have no idea what is going out there in the google world, but frankly its making me pretty mad today.
Same here ......... I am seriously wondering if I should deactivate the HP ads .
Great news canadawest99! I had a $12 last week. Yesterday I had a little over $7. I won't complain. I know HubPages is trying to make up for the Google loss as well. I feel the HP ads conflict with Google. You know Google doesn't play well with others. I turn my HP ads off and on. I seem to get less from Adsense when they run together.
Strangely, I had good day Adsense-wize today, though it was poor yesterday.
Also my traffic is back to pre-slap levels for the first time.
I am delighted to see a few pages that had dropped out of sight returning to top spots in search.
The traffic seems to have increased but where have the clicks gone?????? at least for me..
I am completely new to hub pages. I published two a few weeks ago and then a new one today. I don't have any great expectations for profit which is probably good as I've earned one whole penny thus far! Only using Adsense and linking hubs to facebook. Guessing that isn't sufficient? Or is it just a matter of writing ALOT of hubs?
If you are getting a lot less income with adsense + HP ads than adsense alone it might be worth disabling HP ads for a few weeks. See if things improve.
You can disable them without any penalty- though Hubpages say they will look unkindly on too much enabling and disabling.
I am getting the same with HP ads enabled as I got with adsense pre-slap so I am happy enough to keep it, for now.
If you are talking about clicks to Amazon or Ebay- mine were poor last month but improving.
I reckon dumping the garbage out of HP will gradually help the rest of us to get back to normal.
I have been having lots of traffic to my ad sense but its not tracked, so no idea where folks are going to be exposed to my ads. I don't have any potential sources that are not tracked so its hard to know whats going on with ad sense but if my understanding is right its likely that these are google ads, on my hubs but being shown through the hub pages ad program? With the fact that the earnings there is very steady if not high, its a stronger earner for me the ad sense was. My amazon is also starting to show signs of returning to normal (fingers crossed!) and only 1 hub deleted (it was pretty poor anyway, had had less then 30 hits in a year so no loss ). All in all my feeling is that for my hubs at any rate the key is just to be patient, wait for the dust to settle and maybe do a back link or two when the opportunity arises
I've had 5 clicks for all of April so far, which is WAY below the norm. I'm not convinced it has anything to do with with HP ad program, though. It has been going the same way, for me at least, at Info Barrel and Bukisa as well.
I turned off Hub Ads after a weeks trial with the program, it was making a steady $2ish each day but that wasn't enough for me and I did it because I had a really bad Adsense last weekend...I have had a bit of an increase in Adsense but I am waiting to see if switching HP off has made a difference in the week.
I am going to tough it out and I've also deleted the majority of comment boxes leaving only a small RSS at the end of each hub, the idea there was to give more exposure to the footer ad.
I'm running a 2 week test now comparing Adsense to HP earnings.
I ran HP for two weeks, now I'm comparing it to what I get with straight up Adsense.
Too early for any results yet.
My adsense is pathetic with or without the HP ads. Thus, I’m keeping the HP ads on.
I have noticed that the Ads are pretty awful and I know I wouldn't think about clicking on them if i saw them on another site.
Seems PR ranking is not the only Google slap. Me thinks the Ads have been targeted by Google as well.
I remember far better Ads before the Google Panda shakedown.
I have noticed adsense clicks on my own sites, where I get most of them, are also very low paying right now.
Just a few weeks ago they were paying pretty good, but then dived a week or so ago.
Nothing stays the same however, so they will be back up sometime.
Are most people turning off HP due to the conflict? My google has not been great and I can tell you I am a little frustrated...your thoughts?
If I multiply by 3 what I have coming from AdSense so far this month (since 1/3 of April has passed) then the total will be better than what I got last month. March was bad, but things are picking up again very nicely. I'm leaving my HP ads active. I don't think they are taking away from AdSense.

I was refraining about talking about this but it really is bad. Last month with adsense was my most profitable month, but this month so far I got 3 clicks...What could have made this change?-New Hubpages Layout?-April...

Here's something for you guys to consider, and I am simply reiterating a comment I made on another post. You need organic traffic to your Hubs! Why? If you are using adsense, or any other monetization method on...

I've heard people talk about turning off Adsense to earn more from the Hubpages program, but I'm really confused about how this works. Does HubPages pay better than Adsense? I thought Adsense was required to make money...

The point of having a Hub is for many people to read it, and the best way to do that is to direct an audience to the Hub.But what if the Hub is no longer there? That creates a very very bad user experience for the...

I think it is related to images being used for the HUB ads and Google ads. When I turned off the Hub ads my adsense revenue rose significantly. I think it is because the block of adsense ads to the right of the column...

Of course, HP is playing their cards close to their vest, and rightly so.But, from what I know about fracturing the HP family of writers into these so-called "Niche Sites" is a little like taking a cannon ball...
