Does it make sense to you that over 3 years time one would only make $0.56 total and have less than 20 clicks when there are AZ capsules on over 80 hubs?
Ok so which one of you guys hunted down my email and sent me info trying to sell me a clickbank program? "HubPages Traffic Generator" for $97!
Yeah, it does. If you want to make Amazon sales, you need to write hubs that attract a buying audience -- not a "doing" or "learning" audience. Just tossing in some random Amazon capsules without a proper sales pitch for them is doomed to failure.
I can second that from personal experience.
I don't agree with this 100%. Amazon capsules are most successful when you write the article as a direct sales pitch. However, I make sales on "how to" Hubs and Hubs addressing a particular problem all the time - the key is to pick products which are directly relevant. For instance, if you write a Hub about how to grow gardenias, select a book or DVD on how to grow gardenias.
My highest (google) traffic hub earns $15-$20 from Amazon each month. I know it is because the article addresses a particular problem and suggests some possible solutions which involve the Amazon products displayed.
This was a 'happy accident' because I don't set out to sell with my hubs. I do see how it works, though.
I make a little from other hubs with Amazon, but nothing like this one.
I just got 9 more sales yesterday on Amazon LOL. There not big probably half of them are worth that each but I got them.
I agree with the above. You need to write product reviews, comparisons and the like to get Amazon sales.
For instance, which topic do you think would attract people wanting to buy a lawn mower?
-1. "Top Ten Ride On Mowers"
-2. "How To Empty Your Lawn Mower Bag Completely of Grass"
The first one is aimed at buyers, the second aimed at people just looking for information. 95% of my Amazon sales come from product related hubs (and I average $30-$100/month depending on the time of year.)
I have made most of my Amazon sales through book reviews and hubs that are specifically aimed at selling Amazon products. I do sell a lot through my hub about Fred Astaire and his movies also.
I usually make at least $30 a month from Amazon,except for the summer months. Like everyone else stated, review some needed products.

I have a question for those of you who use Amazon in your hubs. Let's say that you are writing a hub with a list of different products. Do you think it's better to put all the amazon stuff at the bottom of the hub, all in one place, or to spread the ads throughout the hub, with one ad per product?...

With the slump in traffic and HP ad program earning, it's not a great time in my HubPages life. But, on the bright side, I have made at least one small Amazon sale every day this month. In fact, for the first time I am making more from Amazon than ad program.

My Amazon sales are dead in the water. My Amazon Caps are discrete - I have added only when directly related to a product.I am not getting much traffic at the mo, so I guess this is an issue. I posted around 60 Hubs in Dec 2014, so it should be these have not been picked up by Google as organic...

A few weeks ago my earning percentage dropped from about 10% to about 5%. Is it just me?

I am realizing that sometimes up to 2/3 of my audience is using smartphones to access my hubs, yet 90% of my Amazon sales are from desktop/laptop/tablet users. This makes me think that a lot of smartphone users are simply not scrolling to the right or perhaps they are not motivated to spend because...
