    Hello everyone!  I have been on here for a couple of months and have 20 published hubs, yet not one earning from Amazon.  Am I doing something wrong.  I try to add 1 amazon capsule to each hub should I be adding more?  Please help.

      Hi Leslie,

      Here are a few product tips that will hopefully help you get the most out of your Amazon capsules: http://blog.hubpages.com/2013/07/hubpag … your-hubs/

      If you haven't done so yet and you have a valid AdSense ID, you should consider signing up for the HubPages Amazon Program as well: http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/crea … te-account

      Not all hubbers make Amazon sales and not all Hubs make Amazon sales.

      Here is a very good hub about making Amazon sales http://susana-s.hubpages.com/hub/amazon … t-12550476

    Are you having enough views? Also, percent of people which buy product when viewing is less than 5%..

      I would say less than 1% to be honest!

    Yes, I threw an optimistic estimate under 5%. Above 3% is actualy very good, but content and CTA must be flawless.

    I just looked at a few of your hubs to see if there was anything on there that might sell. It looks like you are placing them correctly, with the ad next to the relevant written material and not at the end of the hub. The Dutch oven was the only thing I saw that I might purchase if I was reading your hubs, but you have that listed on Ebay.
    Ebay used to pay more but the way it is now (must make sale within 24 hours or cookie is no longer valid) they are no longer worth having. I am deleting mine as I get around to editing.
    I think the new HP Amazon program is a lot better, but those ebay ads need to be switched over.
    Dont expect any miracles though. Until you get more page views each day, you will have few sales.

    Thanks so much for the help, I will look at link.  I guess I need to increase my traffic as well.  Not sure how to do that either, maybe need to write more hubs!

      Take a look at Writer Fox┬┤s profile page for good information on SEO. He seems to know how to draw a lot more traffic with fewer hubs.
      Also, WryLilt has 50 or 60 hubs and about 3 million page views. She has a lot of good info on her profile page too.
      Good luck.

        I took a look at Writer Fox's info on SEO, thanks for directing me there.  I am going to look at WryLilt as well.

    You probably wont start earning money with just 20 hubs.  I wrote 75 before I started making money and over 30,000 viewers.  You have to build your audience before you start making money.  You shouldn't have to add anything to your hubs they put on there for you.  Has your application from adsense even been approved yet?  You have to be approved for adsense before you can get approved for amazon or any of the other earning programs.

      Yes it was approved and I am showing active for all programs on my earning page.  I will work on creating more hubs!

    You are not the only one Leslie Ramos. I started writing Hubs since January 2014 and I have yet to earn from Amazon. I am sure that it will happen eventually..

    I have seen your hubs. I see that your hubs are not the ones that has to do anything with the viewers buying anything. Just adding an amazon capsule will not do anything. The hubs you write for selling on amazon need to have a good commercial intent For example if you want to sell groceries then write something like write your experience with a particular product, best list, top 10 or compare products. You may use in text amazon affiliate links instead of Amazon capsules on hubpages as in text links have a higher click through rate. Finally the importance of getting your hub featured on 1st page of google for the title you want to target is the most important factor.

    There are some months I make a lot from amazon & others not so much. Increasing traffic is always going to be helpful. Once you have built your "brand" the sells may come easier as well.

    I'm starting to see customer complaints about Amazon. For that matter, I wanted to buy something, but the shipping charges were totally ridiculous. Between that and my lack of sales, I'm deleting one Amazon capsule a day everyday until I get a sale. Rant concluded. Sorry.
