How have the Google changes affected Adsense and Amazon revenue for hubs?
About the impact of the Google changes -- how is that looking now that some time has passed? Are traffic and revenue recovering? Any pointers for structuring Hubs for Google's favor? Are there any guidelines for how many ads and external links are acceptable?
My traffic, and therefore revenue, are continuing to fall after Panda rolled out to other English speaking countries. I expect it to level out soon.
I think if you continue to publish on Hubpages you will need to choose more specific niche titles because hubs cannot easily compete with the more competitive terms as used to be the case.
Keyword research and onpage SEO are still very important. Getting quality backlinks to your hubs has become more necessary.
HP has guidelines on how many product ads can be displayed now. 1 per 50 words.
As for external links, just make sure they a useful to your reader and don't go overboard.

My visits have begun to rise and so has the revenue. The advice often given here is to write niche hubs. Photography by itself is not a niche, but then I wrote some articles with niche titles.
A recent search on Google brought up some of my hubs as the first ones on the first page. This to me was a clear indication that the niche advice is right on the mark.
An example was to search for photography hubs, here my rankings were not too good (sixth or seventh page) but if I search for silhouette photography hubs, that search brings my hub as the first on the first page. I still need to refine the process further but it points to a solid path to follow.
Hope this helps
Susana -- Thank you. I appreciate the time you saved me with posting the HP ad guidelines and the discussion link. Good point about backlinks. I'm learning everything I can about SEO. I've increased the traffic to all my hubs, but there isn't much from Google.
This may be an odd time to come back to HP, yet I want to give it a shot.
Luis -- That's encouraging. So many surfers don't look past the front page -- it's great your niche topics are making it.

Hi,I'm new to hubpages and I haven't created a hub yet. My question is: Should I create a hub and then apply for Adsense, Ebay and Amazon or can I apply without creating a hub?. Thanks

I've never generated a cent from these two programs and they've also never really worked properly. Constantly my adsense claims its active then I'm not approved, then it just mucks up everything. I'm not making any money on hubs as it is but this isn't helping anything.

I have noticed that upon removing Kontera from my hubs that my AdSense earnings went up. Kontera seemed pretty useless even when I was earning with it because the click were not really all that profitable. One AdSense click seems to be worth more than a Kontera click even when it's like one of the...
