1. Google adsense
This is the most popular way of earning money on the internet. You first need to open a google adsense account.

2. Hubpages ad programs
This can be an alternative to adsense or you can simply use both of them. Most hubbers seem to prefer ads from hubpages ad program to run alongside google adsense ads so as to optimize revenue potentials.
3. Use ebay and/ or amazon capsules
These involve being an affiliate of ebay and/ or amazon. This would allow you to display products and earn affiliate commissions. To be an ebay affiliate, one also needs to have a paypal account.
The hubpages learning center provides clear guidelines and information on the earnings possibilities on hubpages.
However, it is worth mentioning that the only way to earn revenue from the above programs is by getting maximum views to your hubs and questions. The most effective ingredient remains quality hubs that would attract viewers. There are no clicks on ads and no money without views. And finally as many hubbers have said, use backlinks and social media to promote your hubs.
Drive traffic to your hubs
This is a simple equation:
No traffic = no ads impressions = no clicks = no earnings
This applies to adsense, hubpages adprogram as well as ebay and amazon.
There are different ways of driving traffic to your hubs, social network and backlinks are the most popular but many website article owners are having recourse to other means including adwords.
