paul, the new feature of displaying google link unit is good move..
but its very annoying to see ebay ads replacing the google ads in my hubs..we can earn almost nothing from ebay ..adsense is the best revenue maker for any hubber i think..so give the hubbers thier choice to put ebay ads only if they want it..placing a adsense link unit in the side bar in place of ebay ads would be more efficient..
All i want to say is that don't replace google ads with ebay ads for the sake of earning more revenue from adsense...
I am with you on this ramesh. It sort of looked out of place to me. It just do not blend into the pages. Moreover I am afraid it will affect our adsense revenue! But why is it popping up even when I do not add ebay or Amazon capsules to my posts?
i think it surely affects the ctr of adsense ..as i checked my reports today ctr decreased so much...even if you don't have an ebay/amazaon id they will pop up just like adsense ads.. its in the hubpages previous version too...when the look chnaged i was happy to see no more ebay ads but again this is becoming a serious issue against ctr...
by the way where r u from in india?
Yes. I can see that ramesh. The adsense ctr have gone down despite having steady traffic! But I am not sure whether it is because of the ebay ads! I am from Kerala ramesh. Thank you for commenting on my posts.
Thanks for all the feedback. I posted about this on another thread.
In our last set of tests, the yields increased 43% from our baseline implementation with this technology. We've started a new run to optimize the ads for HubPages. It will take a few days to train our system, but we expect the earnings to improve from where they were. HubPages earns our revenue the same way as our authors, so this is very important that the total yields for everyone improves.
thanks for considering this paul...
plz complete that optimisation of ads as soon as possible...
Paul is doing a good job!
I am sorry that we jumped the gun Paul!
But really, did we?
Agreed. If hub authors don't have ebay or amazon affiliation, this just takes potential money out of their pockets.
At present, we do not run ebay contextual ads for author's that do not have an ebay affiliate code set.

I have my first ten hubs now. I understand that there is some kind of difference and choice i have to make between google adsense and hubpages ads. I have hubpages ads completed. will that included some kind of adsense?

I've never generated a cent from these two programs and they've also never really worked properly. Constantly my adsense claims its active then I'm not approved, then it just mucks up everything. I'm not making any money on hubs as it is but this isn't helping anything.

Does the Hubpages Ad Program effect Google Ads earnings?My Google earnings seem to have gone down significantly since adding the Hubpages ad program.

I think it is related to images being used for the HUB ads and Google ads. When I turned off the Hub ads my adsense revenue rose significantly. I think it is because the block of adsense ads to the right of the column of text below the title returned to text based rather than image based. I think...

Is google adsense only paying for clicks and not impressions? My adsense earnings have almost gone down to nothing. Has anyone else experienced this?
