Is going through Google the only way to make money on your hubs?
If you mean using AdSense, no. You can affiliate through Amazon and Ebay and even link to your website that promotes affiliate products for other companies. You are not supposed to link directly to an affiliate product though, except for through Amazon and Ebay.
You can also use Kontera, though I've heard it is less of a money-maker than AdSense.

You can promote your hub on Facebook, Twitter and other social networks and bookmarking sites as well as from your own blogs and comments.

As discussed in this thread The Chitika advertising network would be a good alternative to Adsense and Kontera or an additional revenue source. Chitika is easier to affiliate with than either Google Adsense and Kontera and doesn't need as many page views as Kontera to reach payout. ...
