While placing ads on hubs, such as Amazon and eBay, how many ads can we choose?
I have seen many hubs having more than two ads, whereas when I choose I have options only upto 2, both for Amazon and eBay.
Actually I too was thinking of asking the very same question. I have seen than eBay restricts display of ads to two items only recently. A few months back I had put three and there was no restriction then. I have also observed that some hubbers are displaying two or more eBay capsules at difference places of a single hub. I don't know if this practice is allowable or not. I have also observed that when I try to edit my eBay ads containing 3 ads, they delete one displaying some warning. I hope some knowledgeable hubbers will come to our rescue for clearing our doubts on these aspects.
Earlier, there were no such problems, yet it is better that you keep your amazon capsules and ebay ones to a limit. Put only those ad capsules that are very relevant to your hub. Discard irrelevant ads as they have adverse effect on your hubs.
This came up in the forum a day or two ago. The thread is here: http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/114376
The correct answer is here: http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/114376#post2433020
And here is the explanation that can be found in HP's Learning Centre: http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/114376? … ost2433281
The reason you are experiencing the option of only adding two products to a capsule is because you are selecting them via KEYWORD (or seller). When you hand pick products you can have up to 10 per capsule.
I was looking for these links, but you found them first.
How does one go about hand picking their products? You you open up the amazon page and transfer code to your hub capsule? I've not figured that one out yet.
Thanks for your response and the helpful links!
Actually, I do not add more than 2 ads each for Amazon and eBay, but since I saw many ads on other's hubs, I was curious.
Thanks for your help in clearing the doubts!
thanks SusanaS. I was about to write almost similar answers giving links to forum thread.
Marsha - Yes to hand pick products you need to go to amazon.com, find the products you want to feature, copy the url or ASIN/ISBN number and post that into the amazon capsule. http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/usin … d_22478701
You can choose as many as you like, but again having more than 4 ads (i.e 2 amazon and 2 eBay) would make your site loose a lot of PR (page rank) in Google and that is where most buyers come from. Very few buyers if any originate from hubpages.
Think of your site as a water container, and the ads and backlinks (links pointing to your site/ hub) as taps. The more ads you have on your site, the less water it will contain as they drain out your container (hub/site), hence rank poorly on Google page ranking.
Also, the more backlinks to your site the more "water" it will have hence fill up with PR. Plus Goolge (and HubPages) are not so fond of hubs with a lot of ads. They call it a gateway Hub/ site in this case to Amazon and eBay.
They assume that your article is merely used to make eBay and Amazon sales not help the visitor get information, which is the main reason behind the existence of Google in the first place.
So to answer your question on how to place more Amazon and eBay ads, it's simple, just click on the blue icon that appears when you hover between capsules and click add Amazon or ebay.
You can do this over and over again until you reach your desired number of Amazon or eBay capsules, but my advice to you is to not have too many of them since they will tend to interfere with your visitors experience.
Wow! That' s a nice explanation, about ads placement. Like I said, I do not place more than 2 each for Amazon and eBay, but was wondering how others put more than that.
Thanks for your help, advice and guidance------loved the way you explained it.
I've read before it's one ad for every 50 words of text. But I can't remember if this is a rule or a suggestion. Also, I think it's only 2 ads per capsule, but I'm sure it's true, as has been said in this thread, that it depends on whether you are hand-picking the products or using keywords.
I'm glad you asked this question. I read a Hub yesterday with a total of 8 Amazon ads; however, they did relate to the article. So, that's the key, I think. Have to search by product itself, I guess.
I usually place 6 ADs of EBay, and 6 Amazon. I think this number may vary with each individual. I wasn't aware that there was a golden number either. And to my knowledge always thought the more ADS displayed the better.
ok but a am new in hub. and i don't have any paypal account
Do you have adsense? Paypal is easy to get but adsense is not.
You need to have a paypal account to configure ads on your site .
First of all you must write at least 10 to 15 quality hubs, to get your Adsense application approved by Google. Paypal account is easy to open. Just follow the instructions at Earnings page. But without Adsense, you cannot earn anything
The limit was reduced to two recently. Those hubs with than two will be limited to two ads when they are updated. This happened with me recently. I see nothing wrong with this as Hubpages has a common interest in maximising advertising revenue.
I think that it's automatic, but for the extra things you can add onto your hub, they give you a choice of how many you want to display. For Ebay I displayed one on a hub of mine but then on another it displayed more then one, seems like it gives you suggestions based on what your hub is about.
From my understanding you can use both the Ebay and Amazon features and the allotted quantity is two per account. I do think that you can add additional Ebay and Amazon hubs.
You can choose as many as you want but they have to relate to the content of your hub and they have to be used within reason. Meaning.... that you hub can't have little text and too many products. That would not be a good thing and HubPages won't even allow that and will tell you to remove some of the Amazon or eBay links. Use those within reason. There has to be a balance between the amount of content and the mount of product link in a hub.
I think not more than three ads in Amazon and eBay capsules is appreciated. We should try to place a less number of ads in these capsules as will otherwise look overloaded. But care should be taken that the ads are similar to your Hub.
Yeah I was given to choose 2 amazon , 2 eBay ads per hub, on April I could still choose up to 7 amazon ads per hub, anyway it doesn't t matter to me Bcoz I don't earn a single cent from both!
