I have made my first dollar on ebay! When I checked my affiliate account with ebay, I found that I have received a commission of $1.91 on some sale. It made me so happy and inspired me to do THIS HUB
I am a newbie, and don't really understand how this revenue thing works - I think the ebay sign up may be beyond me.
I really signed up to get my Green Grandma columns read - and I am slowly working my way through learning how to link up with various other venues. I edit a website at <snip>removed link </snip> where I have staff to do the computery side of things - but I am learning, slowly, to at least speak my webguy's language.
So it is possible, great. And wish you more and more earnings on ebay!
Look at the traffic sunseven has to have to get one sale
Crap!!!!!!!! This tells me as I already knew
Hubpages is not ment to be a complete revinue streem Its a piece of the puzzle
I love hubpages but its just a fact.
I normaly make several 100 dollars a month with Ebay through commission junction.
Not on hubpages OK now this is not an advertizement nor do I usually share this stuff with anyone.
Heres one of my websites that makes consistent sales on ebay Yes its primitive
Yes I coded it myself Ebay is all about the cookie the more cookies you give out the more $$ you make. I made this before I was a hubber Yes I have alot of sites like this.
I never registered at ebay affiliates: I had the intuition it would be useless . But I'm interested: what's the link between CJ and Ebay ? Thanks for info.
I earn a lot more on eBay with a lot less traffic than sunseven has reported here. It really has a lot more to do with your Hub topics and content and what sort of audience you draw.
LOL, here we go again. The internet is soooooo full of garbage like this.
Hubpages is not solely about generating revenue. It is also about creating quality content, making contacts( friends even) and sharing good information.
Sites like the one you have just posted a link to are the bane of the internet and sooner or later, we will all be paying services to avoid crap like that. No content, no information, nothing but...... a cookie generator.....
I would rather eat dirt than turn out rubbish like this. You are one of the people we can thank for the crap out there. Unfortunately, this is what makes money on the internet. So no doubt coolbreeze will sell you an ebook to learn how to do it.
Happy New Year.
Welcome Practica, but I think you are going to fall foul of hubpages rules if all your content is copied from somewhere else, and your primary goal is to drive traffic somewhere other than hubpages.
Practica -- to steer clear of problems just be sure that:
1) your hubs contain unique and useful information. For instance, don't just cut and paste articles from your site (or elsewhere) into hubs with a link back to your site (it won't really benefit your site much to do that anyway, since search engines will see that the content is duplicated).
2) don't link excessively (I would recommend limiting your self to 1 or 2 contextually relevant links to your own site per hub).
Also, looking at the hubs you've made so far -- the titles don't seem to be very search engine friendly. If you want to generate traffic I'd advise you to choose titles (and subject matters) that are phrases that someone might type into a search engine.
Paul and Mark -
Thanks for the feedback.
My goal is NOT to drive traffic elsewhere, but to share it via HubPages. I'll take your advice and feedback to heart - I'm not yet savvy with this social networking thing, and am interested in being read, not in being either paid or a serving as a viaduct to other sites - if that happens, that's incidental.
I've found that non-techies like myself often have trouble finding content we'd like, because we aren't up-to-date with techniques and protocols/conventions - if we have to follow a lot of links, we get tired and so miss out. If there are a lot of links in something I've shared from elsewhere, I can go remove them - I'm sort of amazed they survived the trip!
Forgive me any trespasses. I, too, strive to be good.
Happy new year and thanks.
No worries. We don't mind some promotion of other sites on HubPages, we just don't want it to be excessive or your only motivation. Positive contribution to the HubPages community is all that we ask in return. Doing so will only increase the value of any promotion you are doing anyway.
My predicament is same as Practica's.Thanks Mark and Paul for making things clear.
I guess my problem is understanding why my urls dont float...I have really tried to do this but it seems i am not mentally ready for this hi-tech world. I cant tell if my hubs are really out there or not. any suggestions?
How do you find the Blogs?? i started one and now can't find my way back.

Is there any value in linking to your own hubs within OTHER hubs and your profile page, in terms of search engine page ranking? Any advantage at all? I've seen a lot of people do this.If this is a silly...

When I joined here a couple weeks ago I thought I could write hubs that others may benefit from and I in turn could read others interesting hubs. I guess I was naive as it seems no one will read my hubs...

I hope this is in the right forum. I am trying to figure out what went wrong with my hub. The second day I was on the first page of google. I realized that I hadn't put the right title, I meant to change it...
