Hubpages Ad Program Vs Adsense

    I don't earn much but was making about a dollar with Hubpages ad program+ Adsense. I switched off with ad program and in 3 days I have made over $5. So clearly I am making more with adsense alone. Should I keep ad program switched off always or am I analyzing too early?

      I'm small scale, but I learned I do better with just Adsense for now.  I'd suggest going for a month before deciding for sure...that's what I'm going to do.

    On the internet, traffic and clicks can vary widely - a three day test isn't long enough. A good test (depending on what you're testing) is anywhere from a month up to a year.

    You might've just had some visitors who were "click happy" and happened to click on adverts that were paying well that day.

    There have been many people who've done this test - about 65% say that they earn more overall leaving the HP ads on, while the others say they earn more when they turn the adverts off.

    It really depends on what type of content you have and what type of traffic you attract.

    I tried switching back to Adsense for a month and was far worse off and would not have hit payout at all if I hadn't already had an existing balance in the account. I have gone back to HPAds and am up to their payout level in under 9 days into the month!!!

    You need to trial each one for at least a month to get reliable figures (ish). A few days isn't even close to a reliable trial period.

    When adsense is beating hpads, I leave adsense on. But when those 1-cent clicks start showing up in abundance, as they periodically do, it's back to hpads for awhile.

    if the traffic from Google is so low,then I can't see how only having adsense active would benfit

    The topics we each write on can make a difference. Every person may have a different result and some will find find HP Ads better, whilst others will find Adsense better. It all depends on what we write about, which is why a month long experiment is the best bet for each writer.
