I have been attempting to use Amazon, but so far with little luck. Can anyone tell me whether using Amazon AStore's are worth the time and effort to set up, or is it best to just use the Amazon capsule?
It is definitely worth the time. By putting in lots of time writing quality hubs and reviews about various products on the net, it is possible to earn thouands of dollars a month as time goes on.
I had not seem them on other hubs so wondered if they were worth setting up purely for hubpages. I think I may well take another look at them to see what I can do.
Regarding Amazon, I meant simply to become an Amazon associate. Was that what you meant?
I have the associate set up and have been using the capsules, all be not well, but noticed that you can set up Astores in Amazon and link them to your hubs. Wondered if anyone had done this successfully or not.
No. I have the associate thing all set up and have been using the capsules, but noticed that they have Astores which you can place links too.
I would not recommend amazon store as i have 75 clicks in that but no one order any thing so my earning is 0 there
I wouldn't recommend Astores. I have had far better luck with my own Amazon projects writing pitches myself and using referrals and personal reviews. Not to mention that as far as I know, you can no longer host them on Amazon so its far easier to rank your own original work than getting an Astore up there.
You can earn a lot with Amazon modules alone, I use a UK aStore to try and convert some of my UK traffic!
I would consider all options, because multiple ways of promoting affiliate campaigns could mean more chances of earning, although you would have a bit of work to do to test and track your results to see what's worthwhile!
Many people just use the amazon affiliate ID's as trackers and that suits many affiliate fine!
Just so you know, there are other ways of displaying your Amazon products.
Have you checked out Fresh Store Builders, Associateomatic, or related?
You can build an SEO-optimised storefront, with blog and other stuff.
Much better than an astore alone.
Creating an amazon astore takes no time at all, really! I have had some success in it. As someone has stated, best to not put all your eggs in one basket!
aStores have very little chance of doing well on their own.
You need to incorporate them into a website and do the usual SEO, marketing, and make it worth visiting your site.
Your best bet is to use Fresh Store Builder (FSB), associateomatic, or similar. Personally, I highly recommend FSB.
You then can build a fully functioning Amazon storefront that is way beyond an astore. Then post articles, blogs, forum, whatever on the site you created. Seriously.
I have mentioned in the past on this forum how I've been making my own Amazon store pages in my own website. However NOT with Astore.
You get no SEO at all with that astore. I have been using my own images and text, then using the product link code.
I just made a new product page in my site a few days ago, and using my method I'm on the first page of google for that keyword product.
A-stores Do work.You dont have to promote the stand alone store.You can also add it to your site. I find this quite effective.You can also add you own custom product descriptions will helps when customers coming to your site.
Oh A stores do work, just as any page can work. But why not put a little more time into it and make that page draw traffic all on it's own?
Google only sees the code for the A store on your page, not the text you see. So it offers zero SEO.
I just made a page on my website using my product item method. Type in "Tinkerbell snow globes" and you'll see my site two times on the first page of Google.
It's only a week old with no backlinks.

I thought that building up and inserting Amazon aStore links to my articles could boost up my sale as an Amazon affiliate but have read somewhere that this is not advisable. Anybody has an idea?
