    I have a hubpage that I need to put a affiliates link on so that visitors will be able to go directly to the site where this offer can be purchased from. I am not sure how to go about doing this yet. Can someone please help by telling me what I have to do.
    Thank You for your help.

      If you have the link, then you could do any of the following:

      1.  Use the Link module
      2.  Type it into the source url for a photo
      3.  Highlight the text that you want to use for a link, then click on the link icon on the Text module, paste your link into the top field. Save it.

      You should now have a link with your affiliate url.

      As i've written a hub about this, placing affiliate links for any one DOMAIN is a two link MAX in any one hub you may be writing or trying to promote a product in. Great example clickbank products, only two outbound links to the site your promoting will be allowed. Anything more than two will be considered commercial and not be able to be published.

      Hope this helps,

    but remember more than 2 link to the same domain, or many links from separate hubs to a same domain is a violation of HP TOS

    I am learning so much here.   I didn't know there was two different types of links we need to use. One using  this <  > while the other uses this [  ] both being used to link your site to another.  But which goes where is the big question? This is something I must learn.

      use the link tool in the text box, remember you need to make traffic before you can make sales.

    Yes you can place affiliate links as long as the offer isn't malicious or illegal in anyway.  Its best to stick with legitimate affiliate programs.

    You can..but you have to be careful.  Plus, only text links are banner ads.

    See my reply in this other forum thread:
