    I know this is a very silly question, but why do I want and affiliate and what does it exactly mean? I am very-very new to this and any help will be nice.

    Thank you,

      Not a silly question at all. To make money on hubpages, you have to become an affiliate of one or both of these companies. You'll then get an affiliate or publisher ID from them that you'll have to enter on hubpages. The whole process is quite simple. Follow these two links to the FAQ page to learn more.

    If you want to make money on Hubpages then you need to sign up to the Affiliate schemes. AdSense and Amazon basically.

    AdSense pay you when readers visit their links, Amazon pay you a commission if you sell one of their products.

    I'd start with Amazon - https://affiliate-program.amazon.com/

    Hub Pages tends to be a very good place for an Amazon affiliate.  Sign up, add it to your Hub Pages affiliate section, use the Amazon module, and watch tons of money trickle in.  And crossing your fingers helps too.

    I'm not sure if you may be thinking of the the traffic referral program, where you can make money by referring new members and/or by sending traffic to the site. Either way, you will need to sign up for Adsense/Amazon etc. to benefit from this.
