    Is HubPages worthwhile without Adsense?

    Unfortunately I have been recently banner from Adsense, after being associated with another account that I had previously owned, where I had stupidly used a traffic exchange, which I had not realised was against TOS. I have never even got one click on things like Amazon and I was wondering, should I go back to Triond and just move all my articles across or try and continue using Amazon and others?

    You're not alone in making that mistake, bad luck!

    You can make money on HubPages with Amazon and other affiliate networks but it will be harder.  To earn from Amazon you have to write very product-focussed Hubs.  You have to decide whether you can do that - if not, you may be better off at sites which pay you rather than earning direct from affiliates.

    so sad,same happens to me also
    You can do affiliate marketing to earn money or you can create your website and try to drive hub traffic to your site and put adhitz ads on your site.
    You will easily get approved for adhitz ads.

    HubPages can still be a viable platform but as Marisa said you'll need to focus on Amazon. Writing for Amazon is generally considered a harder skill than doing well with AdSense but if you pull it off, you can earn from product hubs.

    It requires a certain type of hub with reviews and product comparisons. You will need to attract people who are ready to buy and who are looking for some final information before making a purchase.

    Hubpages is great for finding out cool things or answers to questions that you may have.  It's nice to get answers and articles that have been written by real people.

    Also, as long as you don't over promote, it can be helpful to market your company.  Again, the keywords here are, "don't over promote".  No one likes spam.
