Do slideshow views make money?
I know traffic makes money but it seems that slideshow views do not? If not, why make a great slideshow then? Am I wasting my time?
Slideshow views keep visitors on your hub for a longer period and this leads to revenue in two ways
1. They spend a longer time on the hub increasing the possibility of clicking on an ad.
2. Google ranks you higher for the keywords. The thinking being that visitors spend a long time because the information is interesting, accurate and helpfull.
Bear in mind that HP is in this to make money, so any suggestion or idea they have for hubs is because it is beneficial financially one way or the other.
I believe you can make money from your images on sites like Pinterest. If you have an affiliate link and someone buy a product from your link, you can earn.
