In the Hub Metrics for each hub, is Revenue Potential based on the keyword, or how many Amazon/Ebay capsules and products you have (or perhaps how many you should have)?
Are you applying that to ad sense revenue potential increasing with amazon+eBay capsules on the hub or just the capsules and how much you make?
I'm pretty sure the % you get from a sale on amazon or eBay is determined by the price of the item, not keywords or anything.
Keywords only apply to ad sense revenue.
Or at least I think.
Some ads (adsense) have a higher PPC. Say ads related to "Credit Cards" will always pay more than ads related to "Entertainment".
For Amazon/Ebay capsules, some product categories may convert better or make a higher number of sales.
So it may be a combination of these factors. Of course, I am speculating :. Team HP will know better!
I thought that it was on a keyword basis.
But, I've always wondered if the amazon and ebay sales were considered in the figures.
I don't know, but it seems that keywords have a lot to do with defining the potential. I don't know if there are other factors.
Well, I just checked two of my hubs. One is about a rather obscure subject of "subjunctive history", and the other is about rather popular topic "blu ray". For the first, the keywords (if any) will obviously valued lower. In the second case, the keywords must be higher priced (in context of adsense, as well as the number of total searches). Yet, both show EQUAL revenue potential. Go figure!
I've been wondering if "they" also watch the amount of traffic a hub is getting and the incoming links.
It's just an estimate based on the tags on your hub, and really only offers a very rough guideline. As has already been suggested, hubs tagged entertainment will typically earn at a lower rate, than hubs tagged health (per view). This isn't because of the tag specifically, but because of the content in the hub (so please don't rush out and start tagging all of your entertainment hubs with high value tags -- it won't help).
Darn, I wanted to tag my entertainment hubs with "forex". Just kidding.

What does Hubpages use to come up with the Revenue Potential stat?A hub that says Revenue Potential $$ has earned about $100 while hubs with a Revenue Potential of $$$$ haven't earned anything at all.(Yes, I read the little blurb next to it.)

I've been trying to write more hubs geared toward our affiliates (eBay and Amazon). I'm probably taking a wild card shot at this one, but we'll see if they generate anything. I'm have several other series saved to work on, as well. I'm just taking blind shots in the dark, but I'm hoping for a few...

Whats it mean when it says the Revenue Potential is $$$$$? Is that good?
by Anamika S Jain 9 years ago
I am a bit confused on this. Some of my Hubs which does not get much traffic shows a Revenue Potential of $$$$$ whereas most of my popular Hubs shows a revenue potential of $ or $$. Can anyone throw some light on this.

I often see barely related Amazon ads on pages here. Sometimes, I see ads that seem plain perverse -- ads for Apple TV on an apple pie recipe page, for example.I'm sure a lot of the most unrelated (and harmful) Amazon ads come from the 'choose keywords' feature in Amazon capsules.Might be helpful...
