Who gets paid when the banner across the top of your hub is clicked?

    I just had an e-Bay add snipped from my most recent hub but now I see that the precise same thing which I had snipped is being shown as an E-Bay Banner across the top of the Hub.  Are the ads at the top of the page relevant to what I have been searching for online or and does everyone see a different ad when they look?

      "Salesforce IQ" is the ad I get at the top of your Wet Felt Hat with Dreads hub.

        Yes I see that it changes Johdah but the ad I mentioned was one of those I saw earlier today.

        I am seemingly intruding on conversations on this page, but I do not mean any harm.
        I have also wondered about the protocol of payment for banners, side and bottom ads, etc.

            lobobrandon,
            I did and it makes sense. Thanks to you also for the sign post to direct me.

      People have the potential to see very different ads.  Whatever you search for online can follow you for days in suggested advertising.

    To answer your question, it looks like it is one that is shared as well.

    There is a graphic on this page:

      Thanks that is useful and somewhat reassuring.
      Not sure how this site and writers will survive on only one Amazon Ad per Hub especially now that CPM is half of what it was a year ago. Less views and less CPM equate to less money.   We are now being told that we should not be writing here specifically for the money!  Just getting back to former levels sounds good to me.

        Sally, the point is to not look like a salesperson.  If someone just had a new baby and went to a friend for help, they would be wary if that friend just opened up a store and said here, "what do you want to buy from me."  But instead if the friend offered advice, "you don't need this stuff, here is something every new mother shouldn't do without and why", then not only will the new parent find the information they are looking for, they will be more likely to click and buy that one thing. Then we can trust Amazon to show them more options of other things they should be buying.

        You can make more sales by having fewer capsules. They have done studies and have shown that if you give someone too many choices, they will walk away without buying.  We need to hone down their selection and show them only the best option(s).

          I understand.  None of my writing is about sales, my hubs are about teaching people how to wet felt a variety of items.  I have up until now limited myself to two links to products which are required and needed for the felting process and explained the reason for using them.   One link has been an Amazon one and the other has been an E-Bay Hubs.  It was upsetting yesterday to see that one of these links had been removed and was now being shown across the top of the page as a banner ad.  That was the reason for this post.

            I have a hub about finding free patterns to crochet baby blankets.  An Amazon ad for yarn was snipped. The link was helpful for anyone that needs to buy yarn online and it sold for a good price.

            Either a computer is doing the snipping or the person snipping the hubs doesn't know a thing about needlecrafts.

            As I understand it, the ad capsules need to be not only relevant to the text, which it seems yours were, but specific to a particular product you, yourself have used, and can therefore recommend, rather than a generic "this product looks like it fits" type of thing.

            Hey, sallybea,
            Links? I use a minimal amount of them unless my topic merits posting links compensates for excessive verbiage. I like to use video's to fuse with what I am writing about.
            Does this make sense?

    Ya get 60% of the time the ad's flashed. Or am I wrong?
