Why use eBay in hubs?
If eBay sales disappear after the auction or buy it now ends, why put them in hubs? Wouldn't you have to constantly monitor and update all your hubs all the time to change and update the eBay capsules?
Hi Carolyn. Originally, when choosing an eBay product, I choose one that relates to my hub. I do not have to go back and monitor the capsule, because, when the item is sold, eBay replaces that item with a similar one. It is automatic, so I do not have to worry about it.
Ever since the new policy was implemented (no pay per clicks, only for sales), I'm finding it hard to justify keeping eBay ads. I have already deleted several and changed to Amazon ads by keeping the same product, if possible. The odds have drastically decreased with the new policy that I will get an eBay sale. I did not get one penny in October or since, with the debut of the new policy. However, there are a few that I've kept in hopes of "hitting the lottery" with those products that are germane to the hub and that I believe some readers will buy. I have always put in products that are directly related to my hub, whether Amazon or eBay, but I'd rather increase my odds of getting a sale by using Amazon.

Awhile back we were advised to remove all ads except for two or HP would come by later and do it for us. I dutifully removed all of my "extras", but am now continually seeing articles, some of them fairly new, with many, many ads. When I place ads on my hubs, I am...

I never get sales from these anymore. Should I just delete them so that it makes the adsense ads more enticing?

eBay is changing its affiliate scheme in October and there is one HUGE change which has been sneaked in.Their cookie is now a 24-hour cookie, same as Amazon. For Hubbers, that makes eBay effectively worthless and I strongly recommend you remove your eBay capsules! Amazon will now be a...

Prior to last month my idea of promoting Ebay was to stick an Ebay capsule at the end of my Amazon hubs, I made about $10 bucks a month doing that.So my first lesson was you want to make real money from any affiliate program - including Ebay - you have to design a hub to promote the products and...
