Google Ads on my Hub

    ClusterCritterposted 4 years ago

    I'm new here, so please correct me if I posted to the wrong forum.

    I joined Hubpages recently, and have not yet applied for a Google Adsense account (Since it is hard to get approval), but decided to hook my existing Amazon Associates account to Hubpages and see how it goes.

    But after checking my (currently only) Hub, I've found out that it is full of Google Ads, but Amazon ads are nowhere to be found. So, where (and who) does these Google Ads came from?

    (Also I have no idea how to use Amazon affiliate anyway)

    Google will automatically use your Hub for advertising purposes if they feel your Hub is genuine and sincere (not just spammer quick money maker).  So be proud, and if you see this with future hubs, just try re-applying.

      I am still somewhat troubled - Can I  receive shares from the revenue generated by those ads?

      Whether ads appear on your Hubs has nothing to do with quality.

      ALL Hubs have ads on them, because that's how the HubPages company makes money.  The only Hubs which don't show ads are those where the subject is not approved for advertising, e.g. Hubs that might be considered adult content. 

      Ads appear whether or not you have an Adsense account. If you don't have an Adsense account, all the income goes to HubPages.

    Amazon ads don't come up automatically, you have to use the "Amazon capsule" listed on the right side with other capsules when you are creating or editing your hub.

    The Google ads are generated automatically (we don't choose them), and they are there before we are approved for a Google Adsense account. You won't get a share of the profits until you're approved, and you shouldn't even apply until you have around 10 quality hubs published. If you apply before then, you'll just keep getting rejected. Good luck, and I hope I have been at least a little helpful.

      Thanks for your help, your replies have been very helpful for me.

      I am from Asian region and have to wait for six months before applying Google Adsense. Will continue to write while I wait.

        Oh, I didn't realize that. I forget other countries have to wait longer! But at least you should have a great number of fantastic hubs by then, and it will be beneficial to you after a while. When you do get approved, you have the potential to earn more money sooner than someone with only a few hubs. But it's tough, having to wait for so long. Good luck!

    Hi Cluster, we have the same situation. I'm new here, from Asia, and been rejected by Google Ad. But why wait for six months? If you can make 10 quality hubs in a week you can get approved, right? And thanks Kathryn, I was wondering about the Google ads on my hubs too and haven't seen any Amazon. Thanks for the info! smile

      No, you won't.  If you live in Asia you have to wait six months.  It doesn't matter how good a writer you are.  That's Google's rule.

      Hello shielamaeparreno. Actually sometime Google will make exception for blogs/hubs  with REALLY good and plentiful contents, so don't give up.

      The six month rule is more like "six month worth of contents", or so I heard.

        Great! But anyway, the Adsense and all is just a bonus. Thanks!

          For some of us (like me) it's the main reason we are here though. Nevertheless the people and community at Hubpages are really great, so I still prefer to write here than write my blog (in solitary)

    If you did not sign up for adsense, this is one good question. Maybe only HubPages only will get paid for any clicks. ?????

      Yes, that seems to be the case.

    HubPages puts the Google ads on and that has nothing to do with AdSense. You have the option of turning the ads off when your are accepted by the earnings programs and have ads to place.  You have to apply for the Earning Programs here through HubPages (see the earnings tab on the my account page) for Google Adsense, Amazon, or eBay. You can't use an outside account. Google Adsense is hard to get - you should have at least 20 or more published Hubs before applying.

      Actually I already have an Amazon account in place (You can see it from some of my hubs). If I turn off the ads, do I turn off my amazon ads as well?

      I've tried turn off the ads. My Amazon capsules are still there so I will keep it that way.
