    I joined yesterday, and I've been reading A LOT of your hubs, posts, and I've also been trying to learn and gain a few tips through the learning centre.

    Im sure I understand almost everything, but I do have one question...

    I understand that Google Adsense can't accept newcomers as it may result in poor quality hubs being open to the public etc. However, as I understand it, joining Google AdSense is one of the ways to make money.

    I have something in mind I would like to write about, and will then add a Amazon Capsule to promote a certain product I find very usefull.

    Now... if I get lucky and find a buyer, I will earn money.
    Question is though, would this be the only way to make money as a beginner, as I can only join Google AdSense once I have become more experienced.

    The way I understood, is that you will only receive revenue if you have joined Google AdSense. And if you dont, you would not get your percentage of the traffic your hub has attracted?

    I'm looking forward to your help.
    Sorry for writing a book smile

      Yes.   The main way to earn money on HubPages is the HP Earnings Program, which includes HubPages' own advertising program and eBay - but you must have an Adsense account to qualify for that program.  So Amazon is your only option at this point.

      That said, it's probably not worth worrying about at this stage.  It's highly unlikely any of your Hubs would start earning money instantly, even if you had Adsense from day 1.  Most Hubbers find they make mere pennies in their first few months, unless they have previous experience of writing online.  It takes months for Hubs to mature and reach their full earnings potential. I always encourage people to take the view that what they write now, will earn money next year.

      So if you just start writing, build your portfolio, then apply for Adsense in a few months, you won't have missed out on much.

      It is unfortunate that Google Adsense has become stricter when it comes to accepting new adsense accounts.

      Anyway, Marisa is right, having adsense is the ultimate key in earning big time here in Hubpages. Not only does it enables you to Activate the Ad Program (in which you earn just per impression your hubs receive), having an adsense is a prerequisite in having your Ebay Affiliate activated.

      My suggestion is, you continue improving your craft and check out Hubs on Getting Accepted in Google Adsense in order to facilitate your application once you get more content. There are some cases when you don't get accepted due to some minor to major violations of Google Policies. So, it would be best if you would know how you can avoid these. smile

      Good luck in your writing endeavor!

    The Amazon affiliate program is still independent and has nothing to do with any of the other programs for earring revenue on HubPages at this time.

    But until you write any Hubs, worrying about how you think you're going to earn money is pretty moot.

    I joined hubpages, a few days ago on 7th July, but since then i am unable to link my existing google adsense account with my hubpages account. I have followed all the steps correctly. Whenever, i tried to link my adsense account it shows "working" which never ends and doesn't goes to next step. What should i do in this position? I have also informed it twice to the hubpages team but not received any reply yet nor the problem has fixed. I am really feeling very helpless.

    Kindly to help me in this regard.

    Thank you.
