I've just been tooling along getting no nibbles from my Amazon capsules. I then read a post a day or so ago where someone (ryankett maybe?) added lots more relevant tags to his hubs and his traffic shot up. So I figured I'd give it a go and messed with my tags.
Maybe the timing was coincidental, but yesterday my traffic for that one particular hub doubled AND I made my first ever Amazon sale! Hooray! It was only a $30.00 blow dryer, but still! Woo hoo!
I never knew people actually clicked those links... I put Ebay and Amazon capsules up to make the large pile of words look less and so makes it easier to read.
I need to check out the particular hub you are talking about.Please!!
Hi, congrats. Yes it was me that said about maximising the number of tags.
I have also seen an increase in numbers to Amazon since doing it. I guess the logic is simple.... more traffic equals more clicks!
Still waiting for my first Amazon sale though, hopefully it will be a $20,000 diamond engagement ring or something!
A hair dryer first, but who knows what might come next!
I found this post extremely helpful, maybe I should go have a look at my tags on anything with amazon links!
Im off now to try this out. So bothered about Amazon non sales, making me frustrated. And ive been rejected by Ebay anyway, so i'll stick with Amazon till it works out for me. I hope (fingers crossed)

Hi everyone. I've made many articles and never once utilized the Amazon capsules; always seems like the spammy feeling they invoke outweighs the potential gain from them. I know it really goes case-by-case, but what are...

Not that I was making any money from them, but why has my directly related Amazon product link been snipped in the hub-pro edit ?I could understand snipped competitor products, but what is the point of having ebay /...

I don't suppose I'm the only person wondering what happens if the machinations - automated or otherwise - lead to HubPages having a much REDUCED income stream from Amazon.Make no mistake - as Google Adsense income dives...

I am self published, so I add amazon modules to my hubpages where ever they are relevant. Lately I've noticed that my sales on Amazon don't line up with my royalties on hubpages. I can see a clickout...
