I have a hub that isn't really an adsense earner because of the topic, but I have a lot of products I'm showing for the purpose of earning with Amazon, is it best to have a picture of one of the products up at the top where the first adsense ad shows (top right).
Currently I have that big adsense ad showing (it's a hub on cake toppers, one of my latest hubs) and I'm wondering if it would be best to kind of show off a product in that spot instead of putting adsense there.
I would leave the space for adsense - an Amazon picture won't earn you any money, an Amazon product in a capsule might, but I'm a great believer in hedging your bets.
Yeah the adsense is relevant so you might even get clicks and action.
amazon module would be fine. A picture would be a waste of a sweet spot.
some heatmaps here may help -
its not a prime adsense spot -its a prime clickthrough spot
I have a particular set of hubs that get a lot of amazon sales and I have pictures on about half of them and adsense on the other half. It doesn't seem to affect the sales when I have the picture in the intro or if I move it down, however I have had some adsense clicks on the ones with adsense.
Thanks for posting the question as I hadn't really examined these hubs until now and will be changing over to having adsense at the top of these particular ones.
You can make money off of adsense for sure, don't leave it out.
Well what if I put an Amazon thingie there instead? What would be better amazon or adsense in that spot?
Melanie, nothing and nobody will give you a definite answer but testing. Test, test, and test again
That sounds about right.
If your gut feeling tells you that amazon ads there can make you more money, by all means do it. I just prefer having adsense at the top, because it is consistent. But he is right, we all speak from experience, it doesn't mean any way is right or wrong.

I can see contextual advertising being a source of income but wouldn't think that hubs would be making a lot of revenue from ebay and amazon. If people are really making money then perhaps I'll give it a try.

If you have a standard Hub that gets Amazon sales once in a while, keep the Amazon modules and get those 10% sales. Those Hubs have lots of Google history and I still get sales on them. A hat Hub just got two fifty in...

Most of my income comes from Adsense. I have only made about $20 bucks from Amazon in the 20 months I have been on hubpages. How do you people who make decent income on amazon do it? Do you pick a product and write how...

Hi,Since starting Hubpages I've had no success at all with the Amazon affiliates program. This is in direct contrast with Google Adsense which I've had a few pay outs with. What are other peoples experiences with...

There have been several theories about what content Google is penalising and rewarding in the search results but at the moment it does seem a bit random (from my end). Let's compare notes and hopefully we can see some...
