    What can I do to try to increase the percentage of people who click on ads?  So far 1 out of about 175 people has clicked on an ad (and I think it was a friend of mine...)

      Well, your subject matter is unique enough, but the amazon items aren't doing you justice. I'd love to see the glove...but it's not there for me to consider buying (as step 1). The DJ vs. Digital mixing offered keyboards for the Amazon merchandise instead of real digital mixing equipment.

      There is one thing about the DJ thing that strikes me as a non-selling hub, (and trust me I'm new and I have nothing but that). If someone was going to buy the equipment for DJing or digital mixing, do you think your article is written for them or for someone that has no clue about the two?

      I'll add you as a fan and shoot you emails on how your improving. You're welcome to help me too.

        Awesome, sounds good.  I think I need to completely revamp the digital DJ thing, it's not unique enough, or very informative...

    You better instruct your friend(s) not to do this, it is a surefire way to lose your adsense account...

    I did, I don't know that it was him, but I'm guessing it was.

    I'd prefer to have hubs generating legit qlicks (and therefore money) anyways...

    You need to write good quality/quanity hubs to bring the people in look at what everyone else is writing about!!

    175 visits is way to low amount of data to make any conclusions. But look around at the hubs of established hubbers to see how they lay them out. smile

      With a 100:1 fan to hub ratio, I'd imagine so :-P

    Ahh, that's a good call.  I think my last two hubs were decently laid out.  The first couple I don't think will be revenue generating (maybe Windows 7 review), but the last two won't have all that much competition for traffic I think.  Anything obvious I should change about the layouts?

      Hey man, I won't do your job for you. Besides, you won't learn anything if I do. smile

      Look around, you have a plenty of material to analyze. And no, layout is not about attracting traffic, it is about making people to click once they already arrived. smile

        Thanks for another good advice.  I have a couple of hubs that are getting enormous traffic but with very low click conversion.  I'll try changing the layout then.

      Windows 7 review is prob your least likely to create revenue, in general tech based articles have viewers who know what an ad is and have no need to click on them..maybe win7 review is common enough not to be that crowd, maybe

      Your layout is strong for adsense

      Im happy with 1 or 2 adsense clicks per 100 views ..my clicks average .50-1.25 sometimes much higher, rarely lower, so thats a great return IMO

      i think the best adsense returns are rewarded to the worst writers, when the reader cant stand to read another word and they just need a way out!

      But the good writers with targetted traffic can make much bigger returns in affiliate ads and product sales

    The thing is you are rarely ever going to het a Hubber clicking.  The traffic you want to shoot for are the external links.

    I am very new to affiliate marketing but very lucky to have my uncle as a mentor not to mention he uses Hubpages as his primary tool.
