Promoting ClickBank Affiliate Products on HubPages
The New Rules of Promoting Clickbank Products on Hubpages
In the last two weeks, Hubpages have changed the rules and we are no longer allowed to add affliate links to places like Clickbank directly into our hubs.
Does that mean that you still can't use them to promote Clickbank products?
Don't delete your hubs just yet as I'll be writing some new strategies on how to get around this (and no I don't mean just using redirects - that's not allowed either). Stay with me and I'll have the details up in the next week or so.
In the meantine you can read the old rules below (even though it's out of date now).
Make Money with ClickBank & HubPages
It is well known that ClickBank is a favorite affiliate network with internet marketers. There products pay out high commissions and it’s very easy to get a ClickBank affiliate account set up and start promoting products.
HubPages are also growing in popularity as a free and very easy way to set up a page online with your favorite topics (and earn some income from them).
Up to now, HubPages income has primarily been focused on Adsense earnings but is it possible to make a good living promoting ClickBank products on HubPages?
Actually it is!
But you need to be aware of a few quirky rules and tricks to ensure your HubPage won’t be marked as spam or worse – removed completely.
So how do you set up a HubPage to promote ClickBank products?
Like all good HubPages your hub needs to provide quality original information for the reader. It cannot be a blatent sales pitch for the product in question. It must offer value.
Let’s take for example this hub.
You’ll notice that I’m not going to try and twist your arm and say buy buy buy, because you didn’t come here to be sold to.
You came here to find information on how to promote ClickBank products on HubPages and so that is why I’m talking about it, and giving you an example by this very hub.
Look at how I’ve set this hub out, first by providing information, and later by promoting a complimentary products to expand your knowledge.
Does this work in all niches?
Of course! Actually it works better in niches that are not the make money online niche because affiliate marketers are very savvy to the tricks to get people to purchase a product whereas someone looking for information on how to get their dog to stop barking isn’t and is more likely to click on your recommendations.
So how do I set up my Hub to make the most money?
First focus on writing a hub that solves a problem and don’t make it a sales pitch. I recommend that you write AT LEAST 500 words of unique content, otherwise you’ll get a crap hubscore.
You are only allowed two links to the same domain (and so only two hoplinks) which means you can place a link for one product twice on the page, or promote two different Clickbank products. I like having one link right at the top of the page in a link capsule, and one at the bottom in a text box.
I also suggest you add extra links on the page, whether they are links to your blog, or by adding a news feed, just so the content and links are varied.
Images are good and increase the user experience, or you may prefer video. Hubs with videos seem to convert much better than simply having a plain text hub.
Next it’s time to do some SEO to increase your traffic.
It’s a good idea to write at least three to five hubs, all on the same topic (but all original content) and link them together with groups. This is the beginning of your internal linking plan which will give each hub a slight boost and advantage.
Next write some articles promoting your hubs to get some backlinks to your HubPages. If you don’t have time to write articles, then you can outsource them, but they really are a great way to increase your rankings.
HubPages generally rank well anyway but it really helps if you can get some backlinks to your hubs because they’ll climb rankings even further.
After that it’s just a matter of working out which ClickBank products to promote and you are on your way to making money with HubPages.
