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.

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 earnings, but now it's practically non-existent. I was earning a couple dollars...

What earns you more, Adsense or the Hubpage Ad Program?I have been reading over some previous questions and answers and I got to wondering which ad program is currently paying better, or is running both best?

Does the Hubpages Ad Program effect Google Ads earnings?My Google earnings seem to have gone down significantly since adding the Hubpages ad program.

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 on HubPages and the two incomes were added up in your daily earnings. Can...

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 text below the title returned to text based rather than image based. I think...

I just de-activated my HubPages ads program and I was wondering if someone has any experience to share. Did your AdSense revenue increase after de-activating HP ads?
