You write original interesting keyword researched articles and attract internet traffic through the search engines. You sign up for Adsense (ads are automatically placed) and Amazon affiliation and place product adverts on your pages.
Each time someone clicks or buys something you share the revenue with Hubpages.
It is easy to talk about, but doing it successfully has eluded me so far.
Great answer Mark. However I would like to add that HubPages keep 40% of the advertisement share while you get 60%.
There are several ways you can earn through hubpages -
Write useful hubs, the information of which people are looking for, and invite traffic through search engines -.
Then by adding your adsense account to your hubs where you are likely to get clicks to your ads seen there,
Also by adding Amazon affiliate link and if people buy anything through your hubs, you will get a commission.
If you have a Kontera account you can add that affiliate link, which may also bring some commission, if a click happens.
If you have ebay account add that affiliate link to your account, which can also bring some commission, if a sale takes place through your hub.
Hope this is helpful.
I have written only 11 hubs, and have recently started earning a little money. I try to write articles with good content and to write what I know. You must learn SEO or search engine marketing, and I bought a simple book that really helped me. One of the most important factors is to select a good title using researched keywords. If you write researched articles, it takes longer and sometimes is not worth the time and effort. The hub that attracts the most visitors for me is about fixing a pesky computer error which I wrote in a very short time. Of course, you must sign up for affiliate marketing as explained by Mark. Then you write lots of hubs before you earn much money. It does not happen overnight, so be patient. Good luck.
I'm not a huge fan of info barrel, but I do write there too. They pay a higher percentage to the writer. . . . but they aren't as advanced a community as hubpages, and they don't rank as high in search engines. Were I you, then I'd concentrate on writing about what you know the most about rather than worrying about keyword research, Keywords are very important, but how can anyone write well about things that they don't know anything about?
