Should I use more Amazon or Adsense?
What makes more money here on Hubpages, Amazon or Google Adsense?
I tried them both on other sites and blogs with mixed results, I would like to know more about your results.
I'd like facts and experience instead of opinions.
From what I've read it depends on what you're aiming for in terms of income. Do you want the occasional leap that averages out or the steady, low-key income you can predict? Adsense clicks are more steady and predictable. Most writers who are making an income on this site say that their biggest source is from Adsense.
For me, Amazon is great when I write about very specific products. People who find product reviews in a web search are likely to click on an Amazon link and buy something. For more general topics, I've found that Adsense fares better, especially if it's an article about a service (tree trimming for example.)
Your mileage may vary, as they say.

I guess hubpages is earning money off my hubs but I am not. Is this the case? I have other hubs I would...

Currently I'm signed up with Google Adsense and I've been debating whether I should sign up for the Hubpages Earning Program because I'm hesitant to give out my tax information. Or should I worry about this only after I have a decent amount of traffic coming to my hubs?

Hi hubbers,I just published a hub Submissive Women vs. Dominant Women which has more to do with the roles of women in society and less to do sexual dominance or submission.However, Google is currently unable to see the distinction, and I am not getting AdSense ads.Suggestions on how I can change...

Okay, I just signed up like two seconds ago, and I am seriously confused. I can figure it all out (I think for the most part) on my own, once I get reading into everything, but I have one major question that I can't seem to find an answer to anywhere.Do I have to have a google adsense account to...
