    Due to a massive decline in Adsense revenues at my main business site and a healthy uptick of HPads revenue here at Hubpages, it looks like December may very well be a historical first for me:  HP revenue just might surpass that other site.

    The first six days are no contest:  a few pennies over $11.00 from that site and a few pennies over $20.00 from HP.  Note that the traffic to that other site in that time period is over 12 times what I get at HP, so that's even more astounding.

    That other site still is capable of pulling a good day every now and then, but I think December is where HP has a good chance to win!

    Guess where I'm putting 99% of my efforts..

        Well, 93% to reading yours and 6% for all the rest of the hubbers.  They deserve SOME attention, right?

          No, but I would need a tremendous amount of willpower to avoid the caustic comments I'd want to make :-)

          Better for me to stay away.  We're both happier.  We can agree on some things, but we are cats and dogs on most.

          Oh, and that's "alleged brain".  There has never been any proof that I or any other liberal actually have those things.

    Oh I am no good at guessing?  You are gonna dedicate your time by reading Mark Levin "Liberty and Tyranny"? lol

      No, I don't think so.  I'd like to keep my mood more pleasant..

    Wow! Pcunix, you get 12X traffic to your site than your hub traffic, and your HP earnings are still way ahead?  Amazing!  If I were a betting man (no, I'm not a man..I'm pretty sure), I'd put my last dollar on HP earnings to win! wink

      Yeah, though this is just ads against ads.  For example, I made $127 from affiliate commission there last month and another $50 or so from books sales, so HP isn't really ahead overall.

        Still early in the race, I'm still rooting for HP earnings.  Go HP earnings!!!

        Please keep us posted.

            LMAO, thank you... But I bet it will never get so many ruffled feathers that I have to shut down comments on it. smile

              I'd be happy to offer lessons on how to really tick people off. I'm very good at it,

                MelissaBarrettposted 6 years agoin reply to this

                Instead of trying for ticking off a whole group of people, I tend to focus on sending one specific person into apoplectic fits.  I'm a perfectionist that way.  When I finally get him so mad that one of his eyeballs actually explodes from inter-cranial pressure, I'll consider my task complete.  Then I shall gladly take you up on your offer smile

                  I have no patience.  I am also not attuned to social niceties -I do not play well with others.

                    And I don't ever seriously threaten to bite people.  I didn't mean to start a row on your hub. It was meant to be a gentle (very gentle) chide.

                    I am around people who are ridiculously intelligent (and also not attuned to social nicities smile ) every day.  You didn't offend me, as I am ridiculously difficult to offend.

                    So take a deep breath, we all still loves ya.  And you can play with me anytime you like.

                    That's very "unsouthern" of you, PQ! Oh, wait...you're not a southerner. lol. Never mind - carry on.

    Here we are near  the end of the month and it is absolutely neck and neck:  $89 ad change for each..

  6. Pcunix profile image91

    Final results:

    HPADS + Hubpages Adsense:  $106.97
    Adsense at main site less HP Adsense  $102.81

    I did have some other income at the main site - less than $200, but technically I suppose it still "won".

    However, we are looking at more than 15 times the traffic, so in that regard, HP is the overwhelming winner.
