I'm new to HubPages and would love to get just a couple of questions answered--the documentation is a bit confusing sometimes. Is a "Hub" an article? Or, do I create a "Hub" of my own by writing many articles for my "Hub" category? Also, re: affiliate advertising...I signed up for everything, but I cannot figure out how to get ads to show on my "Featured" article. Feeling lost, Deanne
Hiya deanne, welcome to hubpages! Yes it can be a bit confusing. Each article is known as a Hub. And the Adverts will automatically be put on your hub after the staff check it out within 24 hours. You will get paid for your 'click on ads' if you join Google adsense and/or Hubpages Ads. Just check out the learning centre on here, it will explain it better, okay? Good luck!
Thank you, Nell Rose!! I appreaciate the welcome and tip. BTW, do we pick the type of ads to run on HubPages, or do we do so on the Advertiser's pages?
Sorry I didn't see your comment. no the ads are automatic, just join google adsense, or hub ads. the ads are based on your topic, so make sure you write lots of keywords in your first paragraph, but don't go mad with them! lol! for example, for food or recipes, write cooking, fruit etc
As stated above, a Hub is an article. HubPages ad program ads and Adsense ads appear automatically. Ads for Amazon and eBay need to be added using the capsules available while you are creating, or editing a Hub.
Welcome to Hubpages!
To answer your first question, a hub is an article
Regarding the second, I'm not sure but I would assume they appear on their own after you signed up for Google AdSense Program.
Thank you so much! I love that someone actually read my plea and offered advice! I may become addicted to this place.

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...

I'm having the hardest time trying to figure out Google Adsense. I applied for it, I was accepted, and it said ads will begin to appear in one of my hubs. In my account the earnings program is active and so is Google...

Now don't get me wrong, I totally love writing on Hubpages and being a part of the Hubbing community, but I have lost a little heart recently when one hub of mine on "How to Improve Male Fertility" had the ads...

I was refraining about talking about this but it really is bad. Last month with adsense was my most profitable month, but this month so far I got 3 clicks...What could have made this change?-New Hubpages Layout?-April...

This probably isn't a bug, but it's annoying and I wish Hubpages wouldn't do it. There is an ad which plays sound appearing on some of my hubs. I think it's a cricket ad with the sound of a bat hitting a ball, and a...

My new hub has had advertising automatically disabled. As far as I can tell, it does not violate Adsense policy. Who should I contact? Is it Maddie?
