I'm sorry if this has been asked and answered 100 times before but I have looked and not found the answer.
How do I add an affiliate ad to a Hub? A lot of my Hubs will be about travel and I have a Booking.com ad I'd like to use as it's relevant. I can't see where/how to add it though. I recall when I was looking for something else seeing a version of my Hub with greyed out areas that were for putting in adverts (I think) but I can't find my way back there.
I've noticed other people's Hubs have blank spaces down the side saying when it is published this is where the ads should go... but mine doesn't.
Although affiliate ads are not allowed, Amazon ads are, and Booking.com is available on Amazon. So, of you have an Amazon affiliate account, you can add the link info from there, into an Amazon ad.
That way, you get recognition for using Amazon as your source, but maybe not any special affiliate recognition you might personally have with Booking.com.
An affiliate link for Booking.com will never be interpreted as relevant on this web site because to use their services is not absolutely required or necessary to travel to anywhere.
Links to commercial services where you the author can earn money, and HubPages is cut out of the earning loop, are exactly what they have always rejected.
