Learn how to include ads in your hubs

    Until a few months ago I largely ignored placing ads on my hubs because when I tried to do so, my results were abysmal.  I'm a slow learner, but now have discovered that properly placed and appropriate ads can improve income significantly.  I'm not totally "there" yet, but the more ads I work at including, the more money I seem to make.  One important thing I did not know until recently is that your Amazon ad serves as a portal...so even if someone does not buy the product you show, if they enter Amazon by clicking on your ad, whatever they purchase during that session earns for you.  I would advise placing ads on your most well read hubs where appropriate and go on from there.  Good luck.

    Is there a good place to learn how and where to place them? I'm one of those people who hasn't made any Amazon or eBay money. I'd also like to know how many I should place. Is there a specific hub you can share that is a good example to look at?

      If you go to the learning center you will gain basic information about ads, how many you can place on articles and how they can work to help you earn money on advertisements.

      However, just placing random, unrelated ads on an article will not bring in any money.

      The secret, at least as far as I've seen, is to produce articles on topics that lend themselves to selling products and are also articles that will bring in traffic.

      For example, you might want to write an article about how the right kind of clothing can make plus sized women look more attractive, and then place ads for some items that plus sized women might want to purchase on that article, making sure to specifically wording part of the article to point towards that ad.

      I do not use Ebay, but some people do well with Ebay ads, using the same concept.

      There are writers here who know much more than I do about this topic, but I can tell you this:  once you get this concept right, you can earn well.

        Lisa Keating:  One more thing:  it is against the TOS to link to our hubs, but if you go to my profile page and scroll through some of my articles, you will see what I am talking about.

          Thanks TimeTraveler. I'll check it out. It seems somewhat like common sense based on what you said.

            Lisa Keating:

            Basically, you are correct, however coming up with topics that bring in traffic and that also that lend themselves to advertising articles can be tricky.
