Utterly baffled by AdSense -- how does it work?

    There's this box on my profile called "Affiliate Settings" and I have one Affiliate Code for Google. Status is active. But how do I get signed up on the others (Amazon, Ebay...)? And why are their no ads on my page? Do I have to pick them myself?

    My hub page is here:

    What can I do to make money with it? Should even expect any with that kind of page or would I be wasting my time?

    I suggest you read the HubPages FAQ starting at this point,

    Yes, Norman, you can make money from Adsense so it's worth signing up! 

    You have some interesting artwork!   As an artist, you must have a good eye, so spend some time learning about the different layout options for HubPages:


    While you're at it, it's worth reading all Darkside's other Hubs on how to Hub.

    I just need to ask, do you realise HubPages is not a blog?  You don't put all your material on one Hub, you start a new one for each new topic.  I'd change the title of your first Hub to something more descriptive, for a start.

    I also think you could make much more of your art - rather than posting a seemingly random collection of images on one Hub, post two or three images which are related in some way - then tell us the story of how and why you came to produce them.  I think people would be interested in a Hub like that.

    This What Is Adsense? will give you an overview of what it is and how it works.
