I'm looking for suggestions for alternative ad sources other than AdSense. Also, since Hub pages uses a third party to pay for income generated thru the Hub activity; I'm looking for recommendations other than Adsense. Anyone have experience with other sources?
The only alternatives you have on Hub Pages for making $$$ are AdSense, Amazon, eBay and Kontera. Were you asking for your HP account or for an external blog or website?
I don't know if this is what you are after but another blogging site that may interest you is triond.com, you don't need an adsense account and you will get paid monthly.
Are you looking to monetize your own blog or are you asking for about Hubpages? If you're asking about monetizing your Hubs your question has already pretty much been answered. If you're asking about your own blog, there are a lot of options. I saw that you're already using Amazon ads on your blog. You can try some sort of in text adds like Kontera or Infolinks. You can use Chitika ads. You might want to look into selling advertising on your site if your traffic is good enough. There are also plenty of affiliate programs you can sign up for. If there's a product or service you really like see if they have an affiliate program. You can sign up for affiliate networks like Link Share or Commission Junction. I've had a lot of success reviewing ebooks from Click Bank. I'd suggest that you actually buy the book and read it before you try to sell it to people. That's just a few ideas you can try.
No Barb, your only other options are Kontera, Amazon, and eBay.

Always figured there was something fishy about how you can't see your all-time earnings. Now that my hubtraffic has skyrocketed (averaging now 5000 hits per day) I finally started making some decent change off Kontera,...

I hadn't checked for a while, but have just done so, and found I'm earning more from Kontera than from Adsense. Is this usual?
