Hi, I'm new to Hubpages and still trying to navigate through everything that is, and isn't affiliated so I can hook-up my AdSense account to them. I've got it connected to Amazon and my youtube account, but after a lot of drudging around, I see that eBay is no longer affiliated. Is there somewhere else aside from a personal website that I can connect to?
Thanks for any advice!
As far as I know, there's no way to connect your Youtube account to Hubpages. In Earnings Settings, you can connect your Adsense and Amazon, and you can start your HP Ad Program account.
I connected my youtube channel with my AdSense already. It wasn't easy to figure out, but all my videos are monetized now. Amazon is set, too, I think. It says it is in my Hubpages earning settings, but it hasn't generated any income yet. I probably need to go in there and see if there are any ads running. I was hoping there would be a way to connect my AdSense to my own eBay pages, but I can't find any information about whether or not I can connect my AdSense to eBay independently from Hubpages. I guess I need to go to eBay and investigate it from there.
Thank you so much for your reply!
You can connect Youtube with Adsense because both belong to Google, but you can't connect Amazon or eBay with Adsense as those have nothing to do with Google.
eBay and HubPages have parted company but to generate income from Amazon, you need to place relevant Amazon ads yourself in your Hubs. If someone buys something - you get a cut. Nothing to do with Adsense.
Oh, okay, that makes sense. I figured out how to become an eBay affiliate, and you're right, it has nothing to do with AdSense. I don't suppose I'd be able to add my own eBay ads to my Hubpages since there is an Amazon capsule, but not an eBay one. I'll investigate it further to see if there's a way to do it that doesn't break any rules. Thank you for your reply!
There was an eBay capsule but it was discontinued a couple of months ago. You can't put eBay links on your hubs. HubPages is trying to become less commercial, therefore any obvious affiliate links will prevent your hub being approved.
You don't have to be concerned about Adsense - HubPages looks after all that. The best strategy is to become familiar with the requirements for publishing decent articles and the earnings will take care of themselves.

I've never generated a cent from these two programs and they've also never really worked properly. Constantly my adsense claims its active then I'm not approved, then it just mucks up everything. I'm not making any...
