    Hello Everyone!

    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 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.

    Many thanks,

      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 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

      An affiliate link for 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.

    You can't add affiliate ad code on Hubs, only on your own blog.  You can use text links only. 

    This makes sense because hubpages relies for its income on a share of adsense and  HP Ads, so it doesn't want competition from ads it can't share.

      Ah, thank you Marisa, yes that does make sense.
