we see the top banner ad while we are logged in? I know its probably been covered before but I just wondered if it was to allow for us to see our control panel or is it a HP ad?
You must be talking about your own hubs. I'm on the HP ad program, and I can tell you that I don't get them on my own hubs when I'm logged in. But other people can see them. It is, as you wonder, because we have a control panel for editing, stats, etc
There is a specific reason for you not seeing the banner ad that comes from the HP Ads program and that reason would be, because it is solely an impression based paying ad.
Too many people would be able to drive up their earnings, while logged into their account. It was made invisible for that specific reason, while you are logged in.
I've always thought it was because that was where out contral pad was. I must not understand what an impression is, then. If you are on the HP ad program, I though that there were ads from both programs beyond that ad at the top. Besides, can't the HP Ad program tell waht your IP address is? Otherwise, you could just go to your hubs several times a day without logging in and the result would be the same-illegally bumping up your earnings.
HP can track if the hubbers are abusing the system, whether logged in or not. Since most hubbers spend more time logged in than not logged it, it isn't available to be viewed.
The banner ad is solely an impression based paying ad. And, yes, other ads are on the page, but you can see all of them when logged in, except for that one.
I am not part of the HP Ad Program, because it's not beneficial for those who don't have heavy traffic. It brings down Google Adsense, because there are fewer Adsense ads on the page vs others. Since my traffic isn't high enough, I have turned off HP Ads Program.
But, that's my understanding of the banner ad. If you logged out of your account an attempt to manipulate the system, HP will know it and then will take action.
Hi guys, sorry I didn't construction this post very well. I understand why we cannot see it while we are logged in. I didn't mean to include that in my post.
THe question I meant to ask was, I remember someone saying that some ads are purely for HP ads and I think the banner ad is fairly new isn't it? and I was looking at my best performing hub and thought it seemed a little ad short. However, if all 3 ad spots are displaying Adsense then I am happy, I opted out of HP ads after week of testing them so mine should be all Adsense ads right?
Sorry, I was feeling a little bit dozy and bogged down with work when I posted this question, I was letting it get buried lol
No. It's been part of the HP Ad Program from the beginning.
If you actually think that, then I would suggest you find the post inside the Learning Center about the Ad placement, either with or without, the HP Ad Program being active.
Only on your 60% of the impressions.
No I don't think its short anymore. I know 40% goes to Hubpages, thats why I'm trying to rank my own sites on page 1, I was only page one for a 27K a month search, but guess what? somebody with a hub has overtook me the last few days and my site is now top of page 2

A few days ago, I noticed that a lot of people were talking about changing from HP Ad Program to Google AdSense. I had tried that a few years ago, but switched back pretty quickly because I earned better with HP....
