I am VERY new to this whole thing and to make a long story short, I was scammed by someone when I bought his website that caused me to permanently not be able to use Google Adsense anymore.
Can I use Clickbank with my hubpages? What other alternatives can I do to earn income from my hubs?
Thanks so much in advance!
You need an Adsense account in order to participate in the HP Ads programme.
Clickbank links are no longer permitted in hubs.
You will be able to use the Amazon capsules to promote Amazon products and earn from this if you have an Amazon affiliate account.
Other affiliate links may or may not be accepted in your hubs. Hubpages has not released a list of what is or what is not acceptable. However, if your hubs feature affiliate links they may be deemed over-promotional and unpublished, especially if many of your hubs have links to the same products.
You can't use Clickbank but you can use most other reputable affiliate networks. However you can't use banners, you're restricted to text links.
You can also use Amazon (by using the capsules provided), and eBay if you have an account already.
You can't join the HP Ads program because you need Adsense to participate, which means you probably won't be eligible for the proposed eBay program either.
I'm sorry to say that most Hubbers earn the majority of their income from Adsense and HP Ads, with Amazon and eBay coming a distant second - so I would question whether writing here without access to the two main programs would be worthwhile.
Apparently we will soon be able to use eBay, too. No details as of yet except that it is in the works.
I already have an account with eBay. Is that why I am not making any money from it???
I believe that $$ is earned when somebody actually 'buys' whatever is displayed on your Hub I get $$ when somebody buys a product listed on my Amazon so am thinking ebay is the same? I'm not a expert though.
I doubt it, but don't really know. I do not use eBay as I joined HP after eBay had stopped accepting affiliates from here.
The little bit of information from HP on the new program did not include any information about current users.
Have you entered your eBay ID in your affiliate settings and confirmed it with eBay?
It could just be that you're not using eBay capsules properly. You'll only make sales if the products are directly related to the text, so you have to be very specific with your keywords.
From the update (which doesn't have much information), the eBay program may be linked to the HP ads, which means you'd still require Adsense to sign up.

No, you cannot earn any money from those ads if you do not have Adsense.
