This may have been asked before but I've yet to see a reasonable answer.
Why exactly does it require affiliation with Adsense before a HP ads account is allowed?
If people can use HP ads on their own, Hubpages can get 100% of the Adsense from hubs of people that don't have Adsense.

I had tried that a few years ago, but switched back pretty quickly because I earned better with HP. Recently though, since my earnings have dropped so much, I figured I didn't have much...

Some people have said they've turned off HP Ads and just use Adsense and actually make more money from Adsense. I'm considering trying that out and was curious how much more some of you are making just through Adsense. Fifty percent more? Twice as much? Triple? Quadruple?
