I am from England, and as such I use .co.uk Amazon, not the American version however the affiliate setting page always points to America.
My links are for England, not America.
Is this why I am seeing absolutely no click throughs on Amazon even after nearly 2000 pageviews?
Is there something I did wrong somewhere?
I don't know for sure, but I think that it doesn't work for Amazon UK. I am from England as well, but I have come to the conclusion that you can only promote from the US site. I might be wrong, someone will probably point it out if I am!
Thanks guys, so my only recourse to fix it is to take out all Amazon links and start replacing them one by one?
And if my only option is to use Amazon in America, won't that affect getting paid?
Yes, the sites are two different entities, even though they are the same company. You won't get paid for adding .co.uk links to the Amazon capsules here. You must join the associates at Amazon.com and link from there. Unless you do there will be no clicks and no pay.
I am British and I am an Amazon seller and I get paid in either Dollars (cos of the amazon.com) or in vouchers. Vouchers are just as good, as I wanted to spend on stuff in Amazon myself! That Amazon Kindle and some great DVDs were on my list! The amazon.com domain can still work. As long as you dont mind getting paid in Dollars.
Hello I signed up to Amazon directly from the Hubpage affiliate link. Does that mean I am ok? The reason I am asking is that I hav had 7500 views to date on Hubpages and wait for it 11 yes only 11 clicks on Amazon. No Earnings either.
Viking, as long as all the Amazon links in your capsules point to products from Amazon.com, then yes, you should be okay. You can't just join up at the US associate site, and then link to UK products. I believe they'll show in your capsules, but you'll get no benefit at all from the link.
Basically, you are selling to Americans for the most part, and anyone internationally who is likely to buy from the US Amazon site. This is, of course, remembering that there are many items which the US site won't ship internationally, like electrical appliances, just as an example.

When I write a personal recommendation in the 'description section; on my Amazon capsule, it doesn't seem to be appearing as it has in the past. Will this appear, after publication?
