What are the steps you take, from beginning to end (including monetizing efforts) when writing a hub
1. Have idea.
2. Check if idea has already been hubbed.
3. If it has already been hubbed in exactly the way I would have hubbed it, I return to step 1.
4. Write the hub.
5. Look for at least one image that applies to the hub, then add it in where appropriate.
6. Refine and add more key words.
7. Reread it once looking for any grammatical or spelling errors.
8. Reread it again.
9. Read it one last time.
10. Publish it.
With respect to writing a hub I do not do anything special for 'monetizing efforts' apart from expanding the key word list a little bit.
Well, controlling the AdSense and HubPages ads is not quite possible but I take care not to disappear the large 300*250 Google AdSense ad floating on the top right position within the hub. It might act as a "gateway" to those viewers who don't like to read on.
Secondly, I try to choose Amazon products carefully. What some hubbers do is search for a keyword an put 10 products without looking what they actually are. I also did this initially to get a GARLIC movie disc on a hub about Health Benefits of Garlic. What you should do is search for individual products on Amazon and provide link to HubPages tool. This way, you can choose a highly optimized and convertible product for your hub. If possible, write few lines for that product. Just take some reviews from Amazon and make it. The same goes for eBay capsules.
It is advisable to put Amazon product ads after the product description and usually at the end of the hub. This way it can be a "gateway" to finish your hub and eventually buy the product.
In writing a hub, I make sure I have the article written beforehand.
Then, I decide on the design of my hub. I usually include a picture for identification. Here is where I also decide which capsules are useful and how many relevant Amazon ads to add.
I intersperse the text capsules with other capsules and do not usually put Amazon ads in a long list at the end. I know when I'm finished reading a hub, I don't bother to look at anything else. I don't know if other readers are similar. I also add a description to each amazon product.
After I have the capsules filled, I decide on appropriate links.
I always preview the hub before publishing, make sure that I assign the hub to a group and ensure that I write a very brief hub summary.
• To write a hub you need words more than normal article. Which should be of minimum 800-1000 words.
• You will need Google Adsense account for monetizing or you can use ebay, amazon etc.
• You will get 50% of earning of your hub . Write approx. 50-150 hub to earn a enough amount and strong score.
• Give answers of the question to get good score. Provide solution to problems of other Hubers, help you to connect socially.
• Participate in competition and contests organize by hubpages.

Why is it that excessive links to Amazon products seem to be permitted when they are added to the body of hub rather than as a Module on the side? In my naivety, I did not realise that this was permitted. ...
