    Hi people, I joined HubPages just last week and enjoyed writing my first few Hubs. But how does the advertising part work in layman's language? I've set up my 'associate affliliate' contacts abnd they appear active but what do I do next? Do you paste your ad code into capsules (I tried that and it didn't work) or what? I'm getting high Hub scores but nil revenue. There's just too many techie terms and it's nearly put me off entirely. I've been trying to set this kind of stuff up for nearly a week now. I think I need a simple walk-through. The WRITING is no prpoblem - I love to write - but the rest? Grrrrrr! HELP!

      I'll repeat what I said in my email to you:

      You do not need to paste any code onto your hubs.  HubPages will automatically generate the code with your affiliate ID in it, assuming you've entered them all correctly on your account settings.  Google ads appear automatically, but you are responsible for adding Ebay/Amazon capsules and stocking them with relevant products, if you so desire.

        Hi Maddie, thanks a lot! And I appreciate the time you to reply. I'll figure it out little by little I'm sure but I still don't know how you copy the code from an Amazon site.

          You don't!  No coding is required at HubPages.  I'm not sure how many ways I can say that wink

          All you need to do if you want to display Amazon products is add an Amazon capsule (under "add more stuff" on the edit mode of your hub), just as you would any other capsule.  When you edit the capsule, you are given the option of either displaying products by keyword or choosing specific products.  If you choose the latter option, you can then enter the ISBN numbers of products on Amazon, or just the URL of the product itself.

          Hope that helps.

          Getting set up at first can seem really confusing, but there are also hubs out there explaining more in detail tips and tricks for setting up capsules. just enter key words in search and you should find some hubs. I didn't know squat 8 months ago but I'm sailing along now- it will come with time!
