    If so, what was your result?  Did you make more money with Adsense and Google?

      Not really much, but I find it not so annoying either for me so I continue displaying them, when the time comes, Ill have money from my hubs. Little is still money.

      Hi Brie, I used Amazon ads in the beginning, but never really consistently earned money with them. The Google Ads seem to be pretty related to the amount of traffic on the articles, which is not the case with Amazon or Ebay. Because of this I don't use them anymore (and I don't like them anyway how they appear in the articles, it looks a bit cheap to me). With the Google Adsense I'm making serious money already without too much effort.

        I've taken them off of a few articles to see if it made a difference, but I can't tell if it has or not.

    Yes. Was getting miserable results. So deleted them to make the hub less spammy looking. As to increased ad revenue, I doubt it. If there was, it wasn't enough for me to notice.

    I am making money with mine, but it's hit or miss and inconsistent. It's not like it has to be one or the other. You still make $$ through Adsense if you have Amazon capsules in there. Ebay looks more spammy in my opinion and I've never earned money with it.

      I make some money with my Amazon ads but it's very little when compared to google ads or adsense..that's why I am considering taking them all off.  I made $7.00 last month and only $2.00 this month.  I just wanted to know if anyone has already done this and what was the result.

        We'll I never used Amazon for a long time and then I didn't have it configured properly, so I only recently started earning from it, and my overall earnings are so much better with it than without it. I really wouldn't take them off.

    Is it easy to set Adsense up with Amazon?

    I took off all my amazon and ebay ads on 2 hubs and they both quadrupled in views...now I find that pretty interesting.

      hmm. How quickly did it happen? I always get more views on the weekend because I think people are home and online. Can you keep us posted to see if this trend keeps up?

        Less than 24 hours.  I tried it with two hubs that didn't have many views so now I'm trying it with my highest viewed hub..so I'll let you know. 

        I'm just the opposite, during the weekend my views lower and then always perk up during the week.  I always thought it was because of the nice weather in the summertime.

      Wow, either it is a coincidence or Google is rewarding pages which provide info and are not trying to sell anything.  I have one sales page which has never done well, I will try removing the amazon capsules and see if it boost the views.

        I'm not speaking to anyone's specific Hubs, but Google has been emphasizing "thin product pages" as another type of problematic content that is not as valuable to readers as they considered it in the past.

        In general try not to write Hubs that are trying to sell a particular product and make sure that every link, product, image, and all other content is directly related to your Hub content and useful to readers.

        If I was writing a recipe Hub and it required a particular uncommon kitchen tool, then that might be a useful and helpful product to link, while an iPad or other products are going to come across as SPAM.

    Thanks Matthew. That seems in line with what we have been told before.
