    If I write a hub on visiting a tourist area and want to link some of the places I've been to their websites - is there a way to make money doing this?

    What's the best way to handle this type of situation?

    As an example - I just did a hub on Eureka Springs and I've built links to the different hotel sites and was wondering if I can make any money off of it??

      Only if the sites you link to have an affiliate program.

      Basically an affiliate program allows you to insert your own special code into the link, and the linkee will track how many people click it and how many of those clicks turn into sales and pay you accordingly.

      Otherwise, I don't know of any way to monetize linking to those sites.

      However Hubpages has cracked down pretty hard on affiliate links in the last 6 months.
