The HubPages ads pay more than I'm making on Google AdSense. Is there a way for me to turn off AdSense so I can give all my impressions to the HubPages ad program?
No. What happens is that if an AdSense ad for that particular hub at that particular time is the most profitable, then it will show instead of the other ads. That's why an AdSense account is required to use HP Ads.
At least I think that's how it works.
Irohner, you are absolutely right about that! The reason you need an AdSense account for HP Ads is because HP Ads may show (and probably will) AdSense ads.
One other thing to note is your direct AdSense earnings may drop once you're enrolled in the HubPages Ad Program. This is because only 1 AdSense ad unit will be running directly (all other AdSense ads you see will be served by the Program). Before you opted into the Program, you were running 3 AdSense ad units and 2 AdSense link units directly.
By "directly" -- I mean whether AdSense shows the ad or whether HP Ads shows the ad. If AdSense shows the ad, you get paid by Google AdSense. If HP Ads shows the ad, you get paid by HubPages.
Once you enroll in HP ads, although you may see the same number of AdSense ads as you did before, they are not all necessarily shown by AdSense directly. In fact, only one is!
One thing I would like to know, when HP Ads show AdSense ads, do HP pays the same CPC as received from AdSense or HP cuts some percentage?
Thank you Marina I have learned something new today that is very useful. Thanks again for explaining and now I understand why I am doing better with HP
But sometimes I felt the Hubpages Adprogram caused a decline in AdSense income and hence for the past couple of weeks I have disabled Hubpages Adprogram and I find AdSense income better now. May be it is my experience only.
I also wish we could run only HubPages Ads, they have been doing much better than Adsense for me to.
Maybe someday that will be possible.

The question is really simple ... Is it possible to stop the AdSense ads, but keep the ones from Hubpages, so you basically earn money only through Hubpages ads and ebay, but not google adsense ... :?

I have 3 different HubPages accounts, so I had to open 3 different accounts for the AdProgram. If those accounts could be combined I could reach the payment threshold of $50 sooner. Would it be possible for people like...

In the past I relied solely on Adsense to earn income from Hubpages, however this year I was able to finally open a PayPal account, so I signed up for the Hubpages Ad program. As expected, I saw a drop in my Adsense...

Does anyone have a good idea of how many hubs I would need in order to make at least $50 a month through the Hubpages Ad program? 100? 200? Anyone achieved this monetary amount per month yet?
