    What generates you the most money online? Adsense? Amazon? Ebay? Any other program. How much money are you making? How long did it take you to get there. I am just asking, because I would like a basic guideline to follow since I am new. Thanks for posting. Hub on!

      You'll probably find that it's different for everyone to some extent. It's taken me just over a year to reach a reasonable online income, but I'm sure it could be done quicker.

      A basic guide? Learn everything you can about keyword research. Joining the keyword academy would be a good first point and there are some great hubs here on the subject. The learning centre has some good video tutorials too - check them out: … -your-hub/ … /#more-882

      Hi there!

      I hope my experience can help you a little here smile

      1. I earn through Adsense. Kontera not much (like 1 cent per click and its hard to get clicked lol), Amazon has a few clicks but no purchased yet. Ebay is hard as you need to get registered. basically, you need to have your own domain to increase the chances of approval. If you apply through HP, high chances you will get rejected.

      2. Earning through adsense.
      On good days I earn a couple of Dollars but on bad days, I could earn nothing. Do bear in mind that I have only about 32 hubs at the moment. On normal days I earn about a few cents smile

      I first see my earning from HP after about 3 weeks with 20+ hubs (mostly random and without niche). I found out that if you write something you really know, you will have a very high chance of getting traffic. The basic sense is more traffic = more chance of clicks.

      Hope this helps. I might not be a pro but if you have any question, feel free to drop me a line!

      Many newbie ask this question. They want to try adsense, affiliate, cpa or another. For instance they read that one person has got huge earning in adsense..and then they make a blog, write posts, do some promotion and bingo..they didn't get anything..they desperate...

      One basic rule when you start to make money online is ask yourself. Do you want adsense as your bill payment? If yes,,then you just put all your effort on it. You will be surprise that you will get..I would tell you the secret of "gurus"...There is no secret...just focus..focus...focus..

        Good one! At the same time, the Legendary and MOST common mistake for newbies is expect to earn money in a short time. It takes time and patience to earn money by writing.

        I learned the hard way sad

    I get most of my earnings from Adsense.  Ebay is better than Amazon.  I don't bother with Kontera. 

    Good quality original content is key but you need to write in a way that leaves a question that the ads may answer (without asking them to click obviously!).

    Three things to earn money:

    1. Traffic
    2. good click through rate
    3. High value keywords

    Good luck!

    But how do you get a good click through rate? Some of my Adsense ads don't even relate to the Hub I've written.

      Hi Barbara Kay

      Adsense ads are based on the user's search. Therefore, it he or she is searching for Apple, they can be reading orange articles but the ads will display apply ads still.

      Hope you get what I mean

    Amazon is my best earner, had some pretty good earnings there.

    Ebay was my biggest earner but that has dipped and to see any return i think you need at least 3-500 views a day.recently i have  heard a lot of people say that amazon brings in the most so i am focusing on that at the moment.Ebay was bringing me around £50-70 and adsense around half that amazon has been around £20 total so need to concentrate on that.

    Amazon and Ebay primarily for me, with some adsense mixed in. I try to get a reasonably good amount of traffic to my sites before I worry too much about which method of monetization will work best.

    Adsense is my primary source, followed by affiliate sales. selling my own e-books and then Chitika.

    I've been running Adsense since 2003 and making money via the web since the early 90's.

    I've been doing really well with Fiverr, I've written a really long article and then sold it multiple times for $5.

    My biggest earner is Google, but right now Fiverr is getting me more money per amount of time invested.
