My name is Jenn and I’m from the Google AdSense team, headquartered in Mountain View, California. I’ve been working with Ren and Jason over the past couple months to figure out how we can help Hubbers optimize their experience with Google AdSense. For those of you already using AdSense on your Hubs, that’s great—HubPages and AdSense work great together, matching a wide range of topical Hubs with a wide range of complementary advertisers. For those of you not yet familiar with AdSense, Google AdSense is a free program that empowers online publishers, like yourselves, to earn revenue by displaying relevant ads on a variety of online content (click here to watch a short video about Google AdSense).

In order to get more familiar with HubPages and the Hubber community, I attended a HubCamp in San Francisco (which you should all attend by the way, they’re awesome!) and read through your forums and Hubs. What I’ve learned is that you guys are a curious, smart, lively, entrepreneurial, and amazing bunch of folks that want to know more about how AdSense works and in particular what you can do to make it work the best for you.
As a result, over the next couple of weeks, the folks here at Google AdSense are going to do a series of guest posts on the HubPages blog. The first post will introduce AdSense and how the whole program works. We’d like for all of you, that don’t currently use AdSense, to give it a try and test out the program. Here’s a couple of other points about AdSense that you may have not known:
- Earn revenue – Monetize the content that you already have on your hub and all the great hubs you’re going to write
- Simple & easy – HubPages has AdSense already integrated into its site, so its simple and easy to place ads on your hub
- No risk & no obligation – There’s no minimum term or commitment, and it’s free
In our second post we’ll take a journey into the land of AdSense optimization so you have the tools and tips needed to make your Hubs the most profitable Hubs they can be (who doesn’t want to be all that you can be?!) In our third and last post, we’ll showcase a Hubber that has done well with AdSense and get him/her to hopefully spill his/her secrets.
Because we value our relationship with HubPages and want to make sure we’re answering your questions and getting to the topics that YOU want to know about, please send us your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll keep this email address open for one week starting from today, so go ahead and send us your questions! To quote Jerry Maguire, “help me help you” by sending us your questions so that you can say, sometime very soon, “Google AdSense showed me the money!”
To learn more about AdSense on your own in the meantime before our next post feel free to visit our Help Center or check out the official AdSense blog. If you’re interested in getting started with AdSense right away click on the Earnings tab in your HubPages dashboard and select the “Get Started” button next to Google AdSense.
Get ready, all you amazing Hubbers! We’re going on a fun ride through AdSense land!
