I have not earned much with Amazon and I realized something interesting. When I removed Amazon capsules from my Hubs I started getting Ranked well and I was surprised to see an enormous traffic. In my conclusion I realized you have to use the Amazon capsule well otherwise the Search Engines may see your Hubs like 'Door way pages' So you got to choose wisely here on whether to use it or concentrate on other ways of making money on Hubs. The Hub Ad program is good if you have enough traffic.
