hey paul, can u tell me whats the difference between marking the hub as both commercial,adsense and just marking for adsense ads..
Hai you can use hubs individually for making money without the use of adsense. So its a commercial use
so commercial use is when you don't make money through adsense on your hub, but you make money some other way through the hub? Or is any hub that makes money through adsense considered commercial?
that can't be right can it? i tried asking this a while ago but cant remember response
If you have links to other sites (which are promoting a product) or they are affiliate links, then they are considered to be commercial.
If there is some way you are making money off of it, then the Adsense views must be put on high. You in turn will of course have the potential of making more money off of Adsense, but it also means HubPages Inc will get a chance at making money.
In other words if you're likely to make money off a hub, especially if you're using third party affiliate links, then do the right thing by Hubpages.
The problem arises out of people wanting little or no Adsense views because they don't want people being distracted from clicking on their own links.
There's plenty of examples and I'd even say arguments over what is and is not commercial, as some may not be clear cut and black and white. But it'd be safe to say that if a person were to publish a poem they had written and they have no links going off-site then it would easily be categorised as being a non-commercial hub,
That's a pretty good explanation Darkside. What would qualify a hub as not commercial is somewhat debatable, but here are a few things that would definitely make a hub commercial:
- third party affiliate links
- links to a site that you own or have an interest in promoting
- promotion of a service, product, or business that you have an interest in, even if it doesn't involve a link
These are mostly what we are looking for. If you have a question whether your hub is commercial you can always contact us for a determination (or ask in the forums).
