    Is there any way that I can earn without Google Adsense account on HubPages? I found Referral Trackers one of the ways of earning on HubPages. But I want to ask can I earn through Referral Trackers without having Google AdSense account?

      Hi Kumarpal,

      The only way you can earn without AdSense is by winning a HubPages contest that offers money as a prize (we have them occasionally) and by earning from Amazon commissions from your Amazon Affiliate ID.

        Hi Christy,

        Thank you very much for your answer. I'll keep it in mind while building next Hubs.

        Thanks again.

        I'm a little bit confused about it. I tried to put Amazon affiliate account in "Earnings". But in "Amazon Program" when I get started it's showing:

        Here it's asking for Google AdSense account. How can I associate Amazon affiliate account in my Hubs?

            Hi Mitch,

            Thanks for the link. It's leading to the Amazon Affiliate Settings. But it's asking for "Amazon Associates account for the U.S. Locale". And I've already Amazon affiliate account of India as I'm from India.

            So am I eligible for it?
            Do I need to signup for Amazon Associates account for the U.S. Locale? I'm from India and still can I signup for U.S. Locale account?

            Thanks for your help.
