Which affiliate program has been more profitable for YOU?

  1. curiozities profile image61
    curiozitiesposted 8 years ago

    I was wondering if my fellow hubbers could answer a question for me.  Which affiliate program has made the most money for YOU and why? 

    BTW, this is my first post, although I've replied to a bunch of posts so far.

    In case you're wondering what my answer is, it would be "none" because I haven't made a penny through HubPages yet.  But AdSense has made the most money for me elsewhere--most being a relative term because it hasn't been enough to write home about.   

    Thanks.

    None on HubPages. And i've been at it for 4 months. But to be frank, i guess 8 hubs wont make a sale. Need hundreds LOL!

    eBay, but I'm certainly not going to be retiring on its revenue any time soon. smile

    Thanks for the responses.  I just applied to be an E-bay affiliate and I understand they take a long time to get back to you.

    Adsense & eBay.

      Thanks.  I've made money--very little, mind you--with AdSense on my other websites but not here on HubPages.  And I'm waiting to see if Ebay even accepts me (or not).

        I Love Adsense because I get the $$$ Cheques every month at my doorstep and that too in my local currency. (Trying to make it ($$$$). eBay deposits $s into my PayPal Account which I can easily convert into Rs. and withdraw into my Bank A/C. It just so easy. I have stopped using Amazon because the earning have been very low and also they don't pay in my local currency.

    I've been earning money online from Google Adsense and I also tried joining PayDotCom and Clickbank. So far, the results are good.

    I have not made any money as yet. I discovered about the affiliates very late. I am not yet using ebay, but have started using adsense and was delighted to see that in one month I have gathered 60 cents. As for amazon, no sale as yet.

          That's right. You pay for your keywords to be advertised on Google.

    Adsense and Amazon.  Harldy anything on EBAY and Kontera.  The money was very slow at first but over the past month has picked up faily nicely.

    Patience is a virtue.

    For me trading on eBay was the most profitable.

    Adsense, but I've been pleasantly surprised about Amazon earnings.

    eBay doesn't seem to want to approve me, so no clue about them!

    Ive only been on HubPages for a little while so its been a bit tough to guage.

    However if we look at our entire affiliate career it goes like this.

    EBay by far
    Adsense
    Clickbank
    Amazon

    And the Misc other programs.  If you stay persistant there is good money to be made.

    eBay refused me.  Am I the only one?

    1. viryabo profile image86
      viryaboposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      Absolely not.
      I've been refused 3 TIMES. For no good reason atall.
      And Ebay is the one that has material i need for a couple of my hubs.

    Nope, they refused me too, along with many others here.

    It took me a good year before I made my first AdSense payment via HubPages.  In that time, I'd written close to 200 hubs and worked to provide viable content for users stumbling over my hubs.  I now make double of what I made my first payout and that amount has continued to grow each month over the last year.  I'm very pleased with my AdSense results.

    I do believe it takes patience more than anything else, along with a since of motivation and dedication to continuing to provide new hubs as the old ones mature and begin bringing in revenue through the program.

    Google Adsense using the Google Keyword Search Tool and Google Adword Keyword Search Tool

  19. dwilliamson profile image60
    dwilliamsonposted 8 years ago

    For me, Adsense is my most profitable. I have made roughly $80 in the two months I've been on hubpages so far. I have used Adsense for about three years with other websites that I have.

    Anamika Sposted 8 years ago

    I get some good earnings through Adsense and EBay. But Amazon and Kontera was a disappointment as far as i am concerned. I dropped Kontera after 6 months of pathetic earnings but amazon gives me pennies consistently so i am keeping it.
