I've opened a second (this one) Hub account to focus on some merchandizing- i'm attempting to create a whole series of simialr hubs.
I've decided to concentrate on eBay, as I get paid for my clickthroughs - whereas (on my other account) I get pleanty of clickthroughs on Amazon but barely any sales. Is this a good idea or should I mix in some Amazong links too?
Also - the hubs I am designing do have real information about the 'subject' and don't simply just repeat key words etc - will this promote sales or not?
Any other pointers any one can give me on selling rather than 'writing' would be very helpful!
BBMan, Internetwriter is right - Nelle Hoxie is the guru. She has been overwhelmed with people asking her for advice so don't expect her to teach you - just study her Hubs!
However she has said that quality content is important. She recommends writing at least 800 words and she's now writing closer to 1,500 words for each Hub. That's because "keyword stuffing" (repeating keywords ad nauseam in a small amount of text) is penalized by the search engines - but if you write a long Hub, you can include plenty of keywords naturally.
I do not have any sale oriented hubs of my own, but there is one hubber who is a wizard at marketing, her hubs are fantastic and it would help you to check out her profile and hubs. She Nelle Hoxie and if anyone can give you great marketing advice is Nelle.
Here's the link to her profile.
There is also another hubber, who is also a marketing wizard and she sells a lot online and has hubs for promoting her products. She a fantastic networker and sells online. Her name is Sandyspider. Here is the link for her profile.
These two ladies are wizards of merchandising, I'm not saying there aren't others that have great ideas and profiles. I'm familiar, with Nelle and SandiSpider and I do recommend that you check on their ideas, I'm sure their hubs can help you tremendously.
I wish you well with your merchandising.

What can a hubber do to ensure that only relevant ads appear on his/her profile and hubs?I've been on Hubpages for about 14 months now, and I notice that almost all the ads that appear on my profile and hubs are totally unrelated to the content on the page. I've looked for resources on how to make...

I think all of you Hubbers had the same experience. A few so-called Hubbers must have been using some program to "auto-pilot" following all Hubbers. One of them was so obvious, it went in alphabetical order!What can they achieve by doing that? Yes maybe getting a Hubber...

As an extension of Timetraveler2's recent thread, I would like to personally invite LONG tenured hubbers with a hub score at LEAST 5 points higher than mine to browse my profile quick and check out how my hubs are laid out and structured, and just give some advice, good or bad, to help me become a...

I think the header asks the question. I haven't been here for a couple of years and I just noticed all my hubs have been unpublished. I don't believe it's a quality issue, but I may have missed some kind of format change or something? Or, do they just unpublish if we aren't hubbing...

I've now written 52 Hubs but have less than 300 views from Google. I've read and taken the advice about titles, key words, niches, and high interest topics but am going nowhere fast. Is this the way it is or am I doing something horribly wrong? It seems like I'm missing a huge piece of the puzzle...
