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.

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...

I just wrote a Hub last week entitled "Adam Lambert Sexed for Success". It did quite well, in fact it receive over 1700 views in less than a week. (that's good for me, anyway). My overall ranking on hubpages...

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...

If we turn off HubPages Ads and replace them with one Amazon Ad would our ability to earn decent money be compromised? Would we still earn from Adsense? Could someone please explain the different...

I've earned only $3.11 since I set up the eBay program, in contrast with a couple hundred from the Adsense program during the same timeframe. (1) is something set up wrong somewhere? If not, (2) can I opt-out of the...
