Which of these have worked best for you ?
1. Google adsense =
2. Directing to affiliate sites/blogs - Clickbank,CJ and more ?
5. Something else ?
Adsense by far.
In terms of other affiliate commissions, I have been more successful with "unofficial" affiliate programs as opposed to eBay and Amazon.
Adsense for me produces 20 or more clicks a day but I've only ever had 2 purchases on Amazon. One was for a woodburning stove worth over $1000 so I netted around $50 for than one (which was nice). Never got anything from Ebay. So my answer is AdSense by a long way too.
I'd say all 4 of those income streams have worked quite well for me on hubpages, but seeing as I have lots of other blogs with similar income generating stuff on them, it's been a case of the last year or so to track everything individually...but now I know where I'm at with hubpages I can concentrate on writing more content here.
Adsense was great in June but for me July has been not that great !
Amazon then Adsense. Summer doldrums and crazy adsense ads are driving me crazy.
I've made 3 times more with Amazon than with Adsense. The types of topics I pick are Amazon-friendly, however.
For me, my best earnings come from AdSense, then eBay, then Kontera than Amazon.
Interesting that you mention Kontera. I have yet to notice anything positive about Kontera on the forums other than what you just said. What is your take on Kontera, relache? Thanks.
Try affiliate offers like azoogleads. Not sure if it's allowed here though.
Hubpages ranks so well, that if you made a nice keyword rich hub of a product you're trying to sell, it will very likely rank higher and faster than if you made it on a fresh domain.
None of them for me...I am definitely doing something wrong.
Adsense, then ebay, though until recently the order was reversed.
I do okay with Amazon on Squidoo, but horribly with it here, and horribly with ebay there.
I have only made about 2.03 bucks on adsense as it goes so far (hint go *Spank* my hubs lol) But through some of the affiliate cross promotion I do through Twitter, Facebook, Twine, Youtube, etc... it works out best in my case to use affiliate sources of income because I can create a vary wide variety of content. I can write and do fine with article creation but my strengths are better put to other things more often.
Amazon, then Adsense.
I think you need to find a topic you are passionate about, and write away. Or you could just post a bunch of pictures of naked women.
The tricks of the trade seem to be using good keywords, writing hubs of interest that will draw in outside traffic, and writing hubs that revolve around a topic so they can be grouped together, which helps provide linkage between your hubs.
The SEO boys and girls will tell you that there is much more to it (and there is) but my experience is telling me that one needs to get established before moving on and up to these methods. Reaso being, Google does random checks looking for people trying to jiggle the handle of their page rankings, and this often can cause a new player to get dropped from adsense and wondering why.
Before playing the SEO game learn all of the adsense rules, as not knowing could cost you a lot of potential income.
Ebay no longer can be used on this site because it is in direct violation of the ebay affiliate rules
management will be removing all ebay links on all hubs by August 1st

Another wrong idea.

I have noticed that upon removing Kontera from my hubs that my AdSense earnings went up. Kontera seemed pretty useless even when I was earning with it because the click were not really all that profitable. One AdSense...

I've been given the greenlight by HP HQ to write this and also post it on the forum for feedback. The reason I'm posting it for feedback is to see whether or not it's understandable to brand new hubbers. Is there...
