    K, so I signed up for all the affiliates, Google, Ebay and Amazon. How do I know my google adsense ID is working correctly. When I click on the ads, it does not have anything remotely resembling the ID that is in the box on the affiliate link page.  Also, now, is there something else I need to do to get ads to run on my hub pages from Ebay and Amazon. I see the google ones but not the others. Thx in advance.

    It is against google rules and regulations to click your own ads. They can remove any and all money earned if they find out that you are clicking you own ads, especially after the first warning. Just a heads up.

    Otherwise, If you've placed in IDs into the correct places, they should be working fine. It usually takes a day or so to update google ads on new hubs.

    Each of the affiliate programs provides either a number or groups of letters or both, to separate you from the others.

    Your settings appear to be correct to me.  But as Whitney mentioned, it's a very bad idea to click on your own ads.  You should  be able to login to adsense and see some impressions in the reports there -- that will be your sign that it is working.

      ok my adsense finally got approved ((echo)) and I read on their site about setting it up but when I got to the box it has a number already in there and says active.. is this automatically done for us? can you check for me paul and let me know if my adsense is set up correctly? thanx.. man getting approved takes so long you'd swear we were waiting for christmas to open a gift email (felt like a great gift let me tell ya)

      thanks for your help

    I know it is bad, but i did it at the beginning when I did not even know what the h..l I was doing. Will it take a while to see the amazon and ebay ads?

    I make my Amazon and eBay earnings via the capsules for those services.  I recommend products that very closely related to my Hub topics.  I took a while for those to get going, but I've got small and steadily-growing retail sales on my Hubs now.

    Yes, thank you, I just added the capsules, but again, does it take a while or something for my codes to be in the links as now when you click on the amazon ads or the ebay ads, there is no affiliate link code in the link that is in the browswer?  Gosh, this is fun but alot of work to figure it out, if I only had a brain!

    The links have affiliate ids in them, but if you click on them amazon and ebay (and almost every other affiliate program I know of) will record the affiliate information (usually tied to a browser cookie) and then redirect to a nicer looking URL.   You shouldn't expect to make money from ebay and amazon without either significant amounts of traffic or very well targeted traffic (for the products you are placing).  Some hubs may do better without ebay or amazon capsules at all.

    It looks fine to me Jerrico.  If it says "Active" here that means it is active.

      I noticed that too but my concern was is that hub pages default code (where you get revenues not me) or is this my personal id because I didnt enter anything in there myself and I read elsewhere that you HAD to put the code in their yourself..

    Nope that's your code, you should be seeing impression statistics in your adsense account now.  If you sign up through the interface here we take care of some of the communication with google.
