Anyone tried Adwords to promote a hub?

    I'm considering setting up an Adwords account to promote some of my seasonal hubs which generate revenue through sales- anyone had any experience of this? Made money on it or is it not possible?

      Unless you already have plenty of experience with adwords I would not advise it. It takes quite a while to learn how to get the most from adwords and you will probably lose money while learning (most people do).

      You'll most likely be competing with niche specific companies (who have high authority in Google's eyes) who for the most part will get much higher quality scores than you could achieve. This means that you will pay higher costs per click than your competitors, putting you at a disadvantage before you even start.

      Also remember that you'll lose 40% of sales right off the bat if you're promoting products through amazon or ebay capsules.

      If you have a free adwords voucher then you have nothing to lose, but otherwise I wouldn't go down this route for hubs.
