So I have had my amazon associates program up and running basically since I started here and. . . I go to check my amazon earnings for the first time in months and I see I have "other clicks" but absolutely no buys or anything other than those "other clicks". I got more into the site and from seeing another hubber explain his situation with amazon stating he had his amazon set up wrong, this got me thinking.. Do I have mine set up wrong? Haha, I went to a little tool that says check if your product link is associated with your account, I went to do that and it said it was not. So I read into it gasped for a moment and it says I needed to link the page-product with my account.. So I thought I had it not set up right all along and went to link the page then it says this link is already linked with my account... Now I'm looking for answers. Usually I just copy-paste a relevant product URL link in my capsule and I just leave It there, because I have asked this question in the past and people said this is alright.. So question is here, am I doing it right or how do you really work your amazon program? Thanks for any answers.
It is unfortunate that I might not be replying with an answer.. I just found this be related to my question. Why I got approved and disapproved 6 hours later?.... Back to your question, I think you followed the right procedure, at least that is what is stated here http://nimeshdesilva.hubpages.com/hub/M … ffiliate..
You don't earn if people only click on your Amazon links. You need to sell a product, and it has to ship, AND the person has to not return the item for you to earn anything.
With only 61 hubs, three months time, and a lot of hubs that don't have product placements, it makes perfect sense that you haven't sold a thing. Hubs that make sales are very different from the sort of content you predominantly create.
Here's some helpful info,

Thanks, I was just wondering if it's alright to just copy-paste a link into your capsule and nothing else?
Once you have Amazon set up, adding new products to hubs is just a matter of adding an Amazon capsule and putting in the product number. (Adding the whole link works too - the link gets stripped down to the product number). HubPages takes care of the coding for you.
