Affiliate Links: Does this Make Sense?

    I always include a few related affiliate ads in my Hubs.  It ads a little color and it's at least one ad box in my Hub that I can control.  I don't sell a lot of stuff, but I get a bunch of clicks every month.  I figure that serves a purpose too, because if people are clicking my affiliate ads it counts as a click out and they're not hitting the back button.  So, even if I don't sell something, it still helps my Hub. 

    Does this make sense, or is there a flaw in my reasoning?

      As long as the affiliates you are using aren't added to the list that HubPages bans, I don't see how that would hurt your Hubs.  But I don't think it's of any actual genuine benefit either.
