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
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!
Ditto. Thanks for the question and the answer
Closing this thread to avoid confusion, since original poster started a new thread on the same subject.

Hey everybody, everytime I copy the HTML code at the end of an Amazon product page and try to paste it into a revenue capsule, I just get a message, 'no Amazon results found'. There are 4 boxes inside the capsule. But when I try to paste the copied HTML code into a capsule, nothing shows up ...

I've been a little down about not having received a payout for nearly two years of participation here, but I'm looking at Triond, another writing site, and I must say how grateful I am for the amount of control I have about how my article looks here at Hub Pages by comparison. When I delete...

I'm trying to learn how to do this. Six years ago, I just wrote an article, posted it, done. This time around I'm really trying to do my best. I figured out what capsules are: I just don't know what to do with them. Would someone please spell this out for me? ...

Anyone who uses Firefox have trouble copying and pasting inside a hub capsule?When I use Internet Explorer, I have no problems with the copying and pasting into the hubs capsule, but when I use Firefox, I do? Is it that Firefox is not compatible with the hub capsule?
