    How does Goggle and hubpages, work together? please explain fully.

    I am confused, as well as frustrated, I am not constipating how Goggle ad sense works. Are we an independent contractor, through hubpages, or is hubpages are mediator. Are we in charge of what gets posted, or does someone do that for us. Are we paid by goggle or by hubpages, and if it is goggle, why do we need to have a bank. Can someone explain more in depth the process?

    Hi Tammy.You can find a lot of information on this topic on the hubpages learning centre or by searching for hubs relating to this matter but i'll try to summarise the main principles as i understand them.

    Hubpages is a platform that allows you/us to publish content, namely in the form of hubs. Published hubs then display advertisments, both google adsense ads and ads from other sources if you're signed up to the hubpages ad program.You can also advertise ebay and amazon products on your hubs.

    In order to benefit from any of these potential sources of income you must have accounts with one or all of the following:adsense, amazon associates and ebay.

    If you apply for and are approved for an adsense account and you then associate that account with your hubpages account then you will receive money (very small amounts) whenever someone clicks on a google adsense ad displayed on one of your hubs.These earnings will be accrued in your adsense account and will be released/paid to you when you reach a certain threshold ($100).Bear in mind the ads displayed on your hubs will only be linked to your adsense account 60% of the time - if a click occurs during this time the earnings from the click will be credited to you.The rest of the time (40%) the ads displayed on your hubs are linked to hubpages and any clicks that occur during this time will result in earnings for hubpages themselves.You won't know when ads are being displayed on your behalf or theirs just the overall split ratio.

    If you have an adsense account you also have the option of joining the hubpages ad program.If you choose to do this the ads on your hubs will be from numerous advertising companies (including but not limited to google adsense).In this scenario hubpages pays you for the number of views (or more specifically the number of impressions) your hubs recieve.The rate of payment varies based on a number of factors (usually several dollars per 1000 impressions).In this scenario you will be paid directly by hubpages into your paypal account again after you pass a certain threshold ($50).You may also recieve earnings through adsense clicks but this will occur far less often as your hubs will no longer be soely displaying google adsense advertisements,so there's far less opportunity to recieve clicks on them.

    Regardless of whether you just display adsense ads (ie. have a google adsense account which you link/associate with your hubpages account) or you go for the hubpages ad program you can also

      display product ads for amazon and ebay products (if you have accounts with them and have linked them to your hubpages account).Here if people buy products through your links you will earn commissions and be paid by amazon or ebay directly.

    Hubpages is a stand alone website, who let you write articles.

    Adsense is a stand alone service (run by Google, but not directly affiliated with Google themselves), who let you earn money by placing advertisements.

    Google is a search engine who want to provide the best answers to people searching.

    Hubpages uses Adsense to help anyone who writes here make money, by displaying the Adsense ads. You can expect about $3-$5/1,000 views from combined earnings from Adsense, Hubpages Ad Program + other affiliates.

    To get views, you need to learn to write so that when Google search visits your hub, it ranks you in Google for a topic people are searching. If there are LOTS of people searching that topic, chances are you won't rank high enough to get traffic. If NO ONE is searching that topic, it's pointless ranking in Google for it, because no one will visit then, either.

    You need to write on niche topics that not many people are writing about but lots of people are Googling.

    The older your hubs get, usually the more Google traffic they bring - I have a hub that got less than 5 Google hits a day for the first six months. Three years on, it's getting upwards of 1,500 views per day. I have plenty of other hubs which have done similar.

    Hubpages and Google are completely separate companies that, when used together, can provide you with a regular and passive income - want to know how that works? read more
