    Has anyone had any luck with this? I am thinking about turning it off as I have not made any adsense this month and I have only made a few bucks from hubpages.

      Hubpage add program is way better than adsense alone. So what if you missed a month. Statistically you should be making 50% more than usual adsense.

      HubPages have said that the HP Ads program won't suit everyone, and we each have to make our own decision.

      Unfortunately, I joined the HP program just when the Panda update came along.  My earnings for the first month were poor compared to Adsense the previous month - but then thanks to Panda, so was my traffic, so it's not a fair comparison.

      I've turned off the program for May, to see how my Adsense goes. Then I'll have a fair comparison. 

      Although personally, I'm finding that I'm more comfortable with Adsense, because I like seeing my earnings by individual Hub.

        HP (from Jason, I think) suggest calculating the return per 1000 views as the only real way to compare.  This makes sense to me, and the only real question is what do you use for (daily, weekly, monthly) views?  HP stats, adsense, HPads, or analytics?

        I've chosen to use adsense views as I trust them more than HP stats, and HPads views may well not include all page views as there may be no HPads on some views.  Plus adsense is always lower (60% of total views), which drives up the ECPM and sounds better! big_smile

          Yes, but (unless I'm missing something), I can't tell which Hubs are earning and which aren't on the HP program? 

          I really feel I need to understand how individual Hubs are performing since Panda, and though I can see traffic on Analytics, traffic and earnings don't equate.

            Oh, absolutely!  I really wish we could see earnings per hub.  And I wish we could see it on Amazon as well - I think I've a fair idea about the HPads from which hubs (most likely the high traffic ones as they are mostly impression based), but Amazon is a totally different story.

            I was referring to comparing income with and without HPads - ECPM is the best way for that comparison, although you will have to calculate it yourself.

    Who thinks I should turn it off?

    Are your views the same as they were before the Google changes?  Mine surely are not.  In my case my HubPages ads are FAR outpacing anything from Google.  I'm staying with the HubPages.

      No they are lower as well...I have never gone this long without making a penny on adsense though.

    I'm doing better with HP ads than with Adsense. Not difficult really, since I have had no Adsense clicks for over 2 weeks now! However, it's going to take me well over a year to reach payout.

    What I don't understand is why the number of HP impressions in my report is so much lower than the number of page views. Surely, if the ads show on the page all the time, the two figures should be the same or very similar?

      IDK but before I turned on HP adds I was making between 2$ to 5$ a day with adsense. Seems as though its taking a month to make that with HP..

        You need to adjust for changes in overall traffic.

        You can earn from Adsense from almost any hub. It just depends.

        This forum thread is about Hubpages Ads Program.

        @OP - I have shut Hubpages Ads Program off for the month of May. I need to gauge where my adsense is going to finish. wink

          Hello

          I have looked but can not find out how to turn off my HP Ad program.  I would appreciate it if you could point me in the right direction so I can find out how to do it

          Thank you

    I would recommend taking the time to calculate which earns you more, per impression, over at least a month.

    Keeping in mind that your HubAds impression are only 60% of your total impression.

      Ah, I thought we got the impressions revenue and HP got the clicks revenue!

        We get the clicks and revenue from 60% of the traffic. They get the clicks and revenue from 40% of the traffic.

    Well, so far, in the 3-4 weeks I've been signed up with the HubPages Ad Program, I've earned about half of what I've earned in 7 months+ with Google AdSense (and that's even with a HUGE drop in traffic!).

    Has it hurt my AdSense earnings significantly? Who knows? I've only gotten one click and made one cent on Google page impressions since signing on to HP Ads, but I don't really care. For me, HP Ads seems to be the way to go. Not that I'll earn a huge amount of money with that, either, but it sure beats the even slower earnings I was having with Google!

    Good luck, kmackey. It sounds like psycheskinner has given you some really good advice.

    And it really is individual.  I earn more with HubAds, but others clearly earn less.

    Go to your account page and click on Earnings tab.  You'll get a table of Affiliate settings.  Now click 'configure' next to HubPages Ad program.  This then allows you to turn it on or off! smile

    Your doing great already just keep going. At 70 hubs you have more than 400 followers that's big achievement.

    I am still a supporter of the HubPages Ad Program but I have to admit to getting worried. The program started out great, matching or even exceeding on a daily basis as the HubPages staff said it would.

    For the last 10 days it has gone down almost every day by 3 - 5% and now is, daily, one third of what it started out at.

    I have added nothing in the way of hubs, wanting to see how the program did with the hubs content a constant control in my review.

    I have, however, implemented as many of the HubPages directed quality improvements as my time has allowed.

    So now I wonder, is it that advertisers are not happy with the program and demand is dropping off, thus lower revenue for HubPages and us, or is it the so called, quality improvements we have been asked to make that is driving the revenue into the ground.

    Both possibilities are worrisome.  I would appreciate the views of anyone else who has been in the program at least one month already, but of course comments from any established hubber is welcome.

    I switched the HP ads off just over a week ago and have found my adsense has returned to pre -panda levels immediately. I wasn't doing that well with the HP program so am glad I made the decision.
    Not sure why this is but Sunforged said it doesn't suit everyone and as the majority of my hubs are aimed at Amazon I have put it down to the Hps Ads not suiting the layout of Amazon based hubs. It will be interesting to see if other hubbers who target Amazon get the same results.
