On the hubs that haven't been selected for the Malvern/other sites, the adverts have been taken off. Can we still get paid from Amazon ads on them, or won't that work? Thanks!
Nell, articles that are still left lingering on HubPages don’t appear in a Google search and people can only view them if they have a link, so they are unlikely to earn, but I guess it is possible if you share them on social media etc.
Otherwise if you do manage to have them moved to a Niche site you can always reinstall the Amazon links.
They still appear on Google, although most are very far down the pages. However, Bing will show them on the first 3 pages if the articles are good or have little competition.
Bing accounts for my second highest traffic (recently just surpassed Pinterest), so I think it's worth the effort to add Amazon links if relevant. Especially if the topics of your articles are not in high competition with others.
I have not found Discover to be anymore favorable for my articles than HP. My few on HP garnered 14 views the last 30 days with Discover articles getting 20. Only two were from a search engine. One from Google for a Discover article and the other one was on HP and from Bing.
The interesting thing about Amazon links that I find is that a large picture sells more, but this is not allowed by hubpages, which is a pity. I discovered that by writing similar articles that other sites produced more sales on Amazon that hubpages did.
That said, hubpages is one up in that it doesn't depend on followers. It really is merit that gets it onto google. Other sites are increasingly asking you to bring followers which is shitty if you don't have 100,000 followers. Just noticed the Newsbreak had the same criteria.
Thanks Tess. I think as they are completely taking away our ads from these hubs we may as well add our adverts as we like. We just have to share the article instead of waiting for Google to do its job.
Nell, I just picked one of your articles at random to see why you might be getting rejected for the niche sites. I looked at “Weird Dreams in Lockdown” and I immediately saw three problems that you can easily correct.
1. Your profile bio mentions HubPages. Nothing on the niche sites should mention HubPages. Your profile bio becomes the bio used on the niche sites. So mentioning HubPages is not a good idea. You’ll also want to make it work no matter which vertical niche site it’s on, because it’s used on all of them where you would have articles. Click your name on any hub that’s on a vertical niche site and you’ll see what I mean.
2. Your images don’t have any attribution.
3. You have several links to hubs on HubPages.com. That will definitely keep your hub from being moved because we cannot link from any niche site back to HubPages.
Hope that helps. Have a happy new year. Stay safe.

There is a real need to purge Amazon ads from this site but there is a right way and a wrong way to go about it.Pages that have multiple Amazon ads but get good traffic from search engines are obviously not a problem. Google will have hit them long ago if they were triggering spam filters.What...

Every time my hubs get edited the only changes that are ever made are the deletion of my Amazon modules. What's up? They are relevant and usually only one! I make money on those links (some days more than I make on ad revenue). I need to know what the problem is with my...

Should I continue to run Amazon ads if I've never earned a penny with them?I've been earning with AdSense and HubPages since July, but never a penny from Amazon.

Recently Paul Edmondson made a statement about ads which has caused some confusion.He has suggested that if you are using Amazon ads on a Hub, you should turn off other advertising. I can understand his reasoning, BUT it will backfire badly if you don't do it right.The theory is that...
