I just switched off Hubpages ad program. I am anxious to see what effect it has on my adsense impressions and earnings.
Let us know if those 1-cent google clicks are still in town?
Oh, I assure you that they are. Can't seem to get rid of those vile vagrants! They and their siblings (2-5 cent clicks) are camped out in my subdomain.
My adsense clicks have actually been decent, but I think HPads are more consistent, so I'm leaving mine on.
I will also switch it back on next month. I have reached payout with the ad program and need about $25 for adsense payout. Hopefully with the ad program switched off I enhance my chances of hitting payout with adsense.
I shouldn't complain, I suppose, as I do get some good clicks.
It's just irritating that I still get so many penny clicks even after bidding against HPads.
I've left mine on as well even though I would like to know what adsense by itself would do. The CPM is just so much higher than I've ever seen with adsense that I'm convinced it would be a pre-ordained test.
I can now attest to that as well. Tomorrow morning's final total will tell the tale...
After my "one month on one month off" experiment, i discovered that HPads isn't for me. Adsense doing really great for me.
So wait....are you guys saying it's better to leave one on and the other off?
Most hubbers will use both HPads and adsense, but only time and testing will determine what is right for you.
Give it some time, get your earnings and traffic up a little, and turn off HPads. See what happens. Only then can you make an informed decision.
i'm doing good with the hp ad program - my earnings there keep going up and up but Google latley - woa - is way down from the norm
I decided to turn mine off a while back. It was right before my big traffic surge, so I cannot really tell for sure if it was beneficial or not. It is nice that they can go on and off as the author chooses.
You don't want to turn them on and off a lot, as that's "disallowed" according to HubPages,
There has been a huge surge of traffic on it. I would leave it on a bit more, if I were you. I thought my statistics had an error, but they stayed consistently high. Good luck.
Don't make a decision solely upon someone else's experience. Your results may vary based on the content of your hubs. AdSense depends on clicks, while HPads work on page views alone.
Take @Ms Dee, for example. She writes many hubs about the practical application of psychological type to job search and business management. These should tend to draw ad clicks (in my opinion). She also writes many hubs about religious, political and social issues. I would expect these hubs not to attract many ad clicks, but to draw many page views. The former is well suited to AdSense; the latter to HPads. Unfortunately, she can't be selective about which hubs use HPads.
So think about your primary target audience. Are they more likely to be in a search-and-buy mood or a leisurely-reading mood?

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...

Is it true that the 60/40 model only applies after HubPages pays their expenses? Because I have expenses too... I don't see why we should suffer because HubPages wants 40% to be pure profit AFTER their expenses.
