In addition to free website creation tools with huge design options, HubPages also offers the following earning programs to convert your page traffic into a revenue.
- The Ad Program including Google AdSense
- eBay Program
- Amazon Program
These earning programs allow you to earn from multiple sources from each single pages called as hub. Here we discuss these programs in detail.
The HubPages Ad Program
HubPages provides ads from multiple partners (including Google AdSense) to run on your Hubs. In the Google AdSense-only arrangement, each Hub may display three ad units and two link units. If you opt in to the Ad Program, you will have a total of six ad slots in a single page.
The eBay Program
Through eBay Program you can earn from referring products listed in eBay Capsules that you may choose to place in your Hubs. You will be paid via the HubPages Earnings Program just like the Ad Program.
The Amazon Program
The Amazon Program is very similar to the eBay Program in that it enables you to list Amazon products (via the Amazon Capsule) in your Hubs and earn from purchases resulting from clicks on those items.
You can also participate and win a cash prize in a HubPages contest, you will receive your payment through the HubPages Earnings Program. Contest winners do not need to have a Google AdSense Account associated with HubPages; they only need a PayPal account for getting paid.
Activating Earnings Program
You can activate individual earning program under My Account > Earnings > Settings. For AdSense, you will paid through your Google AdSense account and for all other programs HubPages will pay you through your PayPal account once your earnings reached a threshold of USD50.
In addition to the above earning programs you can get additional ad impressions through referral program. When a user from your referral link becomes a hubber within 30 days then you will get 10% of their hub’s impression. This 10% is provided by the HubPages and the referral publisher will still get 60% of the ad impressions. Learn more about AdSense revenue sharing sites.
