I have posted 2 hubs and understand the basics of how hubpages work and affiliate marketing.
I have a buddy who is a blacksmith and makes blades. He wants me to post his product on Amazon and ebay. and also make a site for him with a shopping cart/ customer orders.
I know I can do a product review here, but a few questions...
Can I refer from my hubs to products that "I" am selling / making additional profit off of?
Can I link to my main site and ad adsense / Amazon / Ebay to the main site? AND vice versa?
And most importantly... since I am a noob.. what would experienced Hubbers say are the best first steps to getting yourself established and increase traffic?
Thanks for any and all help!

Personally, I would steer away from referring to the items as "items I sell".... I have done some reviews but never have I referred to the items as being for sale by myself. That may or may not be proper protocol, but it does work for me.
As for linking to AdSense, your account here is linked to AdSense. Amazon can be displayed using the Amazon capsules with links to items for sale on Amazon. You can specifically pick the items you want to display in the Amazon capsules. Be sure they are related to the hub however.
If you're selling on Amazon, there may be some limit to what you can do outside of Amazon with links back to your products. I don't sell products there, but do have Kindle books. The rules for those are pretty wacky in some places. So just a suggestion that you thoroughly read all of the Amazon rules about linking your own products before you do anything else. And I agree with Dale that you shouldn't refer to them as your products.
I think all your questions can be answered by reading the appropriate entries here,
Thank you, I have been slowly working my way through the massive amounts of information on the learning center. I was just hoping someone could point me to some specifics if applicable.
Thank you though for your input!

Okay, I just checked my Amazon report and it indicates that the total number of items shipped is 115. On the next line it says that I can increase my referral rate to 7% by referring one more item.The Performance Fee Structure indicates that 7% starts at 111 items. Why, then, is it...

I'm wondering if anyone can enlighten me on copyright and attribution issues with respect to products sold on Amazon. If I write a hub that focuses specifically on one or more Amazon products, where do I stand with respect to using the full-size images corresponding to the products I select for the...

I am about to publish an ebook (on Overcoming Anxiety) and would like to make use of my hubpages related to that topic (more to be posted soon). Will having an amazon link to the Kindle ebook count as one of my two self-serving links, even though it is in an Amazon capsule? I assume yes, but wanted...

Hi,I have other accounts here (this is my forum account). So far in the two days of Amazon earnings reports in the new HubPages-linked Amazon products, I only see products listed that I directly linked to. Usually I earn commission from products that were bought using my affiliate links...

I am confused about putting a product on my hub. I can do the product, but if I try to imbed the description, it is HTML. I cannot find an answer at Amazon or in the FAQ here. I am a new associate. Thanks.
