    Payment for articles

    Do we get paid per clicks on our article?  What about advertising?  I am unclear how this all works.

    Making Money on HubPages
    Can I make a living with HubPages "Royalties"?
    We consider the program to be a nice bonus, but it should not be the main reason why you participate in HubPages. There are revenue generating opportunities with HubPages, but we are careful not to over-promise any results.

    How does the program work?
    The HubPages “Royalties” provides you with an easy way to take advantage of the Internet’s top ad revenue and commission generating tools.

    You can set up affiliate accounts with Google, Kontera, eBay and Amazon. Once you hit the minimum earnings, you will get paid directly by Google, eBay, Kontera and Amazon.

    Google automatically displays ads in your Hub that are relevant to your topic.

    eBay and Amazon products can be featured in your Hub – you decide which products to highlight.

    Kontera contextual link ads can be turned on or off either on all your Hubs, or on a Hub-by-Hub basis.

    HubPages earns its revenue from these ads, so we split the impressions with our writers.

    What are impressions?
    Impressions are what drive revenue generation. An impression occurs whenever an ad appears on a Hub. HubPages earns its revenue from these ads, so we split the impressions with our writers.

    How do impressions generate revenue on HubPages?
    After you’ve joined the affiliate programs from eBay, Amazon, Kontera, and Google, ads for these companies appear on your Hubs. Any revenue generated during one of your impressions (a click-through with Google, an actual purchase with Amazon or eBay) is 100% yours.

    HubPages splits the impressions with you in the following way:

    Your own Hubs: Hubbers receive 60% of total impressions.

    The HubPages Affiliate Program: You can refer new writers to HubPages and if they become Hubbers within 30 days, you receive an additional 10% of their Hubs’ lifetime impressions.

    Traffic Referral Program: If you send traffic to any Hub, you’re entitled to either 9% or 12% of total impressions. You’ll receive 9% if the Hub you’ve referred people to already has impressions allocated to an Affiliate. If there are no Affiliates, you’ll receive 12% of the total impressions.

    Whatever is left from the splits above goes to HubPages. Note that these splits apply only to Hubs and User Profile pages. On all other pages, such as a referral to a Tag page or the HubPages home page, you’ll receive 30% on a traffic referral, with HubPages getting the rest.
