Anyone have any experience with this program? I just got accepted today.
He is talking about the affiliate program, not AdSense.
I signed up but haven't sold anything through them.
I have the ads on my personal blog.
I'm a member of other affiliate programs on my blog site, but never had any experience with Google's. With the relatively few Hubs I have checked here, I am not seeing Google affiliate ads.
I don't see a Google capsule to add products to my Hub. How do we do that?
You don't need capsule for that. Just connect your adsense account in "Affiliate settings": section of your account.
If i'm not wrong then affiliate program for firefox download, adsense sign up is closed and i don't see these buttons on adsense account anymore. It was closed after they purchased doubleclick.
You don't have to insert. Yieldbuild software is taking care of google ads placement so it saves your work. Ads are seen below the title and end of article and in the sidebars. You can check the ads on another members hubs.
I think there is some confusion here. Google AdSense and the Google Affiliate Network program are two entirely different monetization streams.
Google AdSense can be enabled during hub creation, provided you have entered your personal AdSense code in the appropriate area of your Hubpages account page so that you may receive credit as per Hubpages revenue sharing model.
The Google Affiliate Network program allows members of that affiliate program to promote (when approved on a company by company basis) items and products for a fixed dollar or percentage return. Based on current Hubpages policy, up to two links such as these may be placed manually in any individual hub.
hello, fellow Ithacan,
You place relevant links using either the link capsule or the chain icon in a text capsule
When selecting a link usually the program offers a snippet of html code
<a href="htttp://wvvw. yournewlink.com">Blah blah promotional text</a>
You will be copying only the link starting with http ->.com and placing it into your hub.
That is the mechanics, but actually getting conversions and sales as an affiliate marketer is a whole different animal than the rather simple adsense program
In adsense- once you attract traffic - being boring and difficult to read is rather likely to make you money, but in true affiliate marketing you will have to pre-qualify and pre-sell your target traffic in order to get that cc out or personal information entered that leads to your commission.
Life at DrTom's,
sunforged is quite correct. It is my feeling that AdSense and direct affiliate marketing are two "different animals" so to speak.
While there are a few exceptions, for the most part a "pitch page" (which is what the hub effectively becomes with affiliate links and sales copy) and AdSense are at odds with each other together on one page, or hub.
There is a time consideration as well. You'll need to apply for approval with each individual merchant within the Google Affiliate Network, wait a few days for approval or non-approval, then if approved create specific links as sunforged outlined to place within your text. There isn't anything automated about the process.
Conversely, AdSense will be inserted automatically (provided you configure the hub to do so) and Amazon capsules can be inserted "on the fly" rather quickly, and with good strategies overall, perform well.
Both approaches have their benefits, but they are different.
I don't think (personally) that hubpages is optimised for that kinda stuff. Adsense and Kontera are the best programs (in my opinion) to use Hubpages for. Your hubs that sell stuff won't really do well unless you have plenty experience with affiliate marketing and good marketing / promo techniques.
I signed up for Google Affiliates after reading your question. Basically, the only way I've really gotten anything to work is to insert a link capsule into my hub and copy the link into it. I don't know how much clicking people will do on them, but like I said, the only way I've gotten anything to work yet.
I also disagree
adsense is my lowest earner and I have only been optimizing for it for the last 4 months
...and yes I do get monthly adsense checks, but some aff programs pay more for a single sale than most hubbers monthly adsense income
I've had really good luck with the Google Affiliate Network. I'm new here, but I have been with them for a couple of years.
One of the nicest things about the program is that the Google Affiliate Network earnings are combined with AdSense earnings, so newer folks who aren't getting the $100 monthly payout from AdSense can greatly increase their chances of getting a check every month by recommending products, writing reviews, comparisons, etc.
I usually make 10 times the money from affiliate programs than from AdSense every month. This month it's looking more like 30:1 due to the holiday neurosis.
I was wondering why my AdSense CTR is so low - what was said above makes total sense. And I also think it makes sense on profitable PPC keywords not to include affiliate links or capsules - I'd rather get a $40 click than a $.90 commission on a paperback. But maybe I should open another hub account and adopt a different persona for that approach...

I tried to add an amazon capsule to a hub the other day. Hm. No results. In fact, a search on "book" turned up no results. Very interesting. The hub tool must be broken.Later, I went to check on my Amazon...

Authoring Hubs is about sharing and spreading ideas. Most of what we do is word-based, and a capsule to show off related Zazzle stuff would be an eye-catching way to allow readers interested in those ideas to buy...
