      I did very little with those affiliates for years, but when Amazon started paying more, I got more serious about putting more ads on my hubs and placing them correctly.  I am now making some money from Amazon, and once in awhile I get a good payday.  One hubber here had an ad recently that someone bought from for $2500, so her payday was pretty good!

    Why did you have to limit this thread to success stories? big_smile

    Seriously. Me; alas; not. But I have heard several stories of success from others. However, that is for them to say, so I shall not name names.

    My impression is Amazon and eBay work just dandy on hubs whose sole purpose is to talk about a product, products, or product category.

    Hubs that talk about other things (like mine do), which then throw in a tangential Amazon or eBay item, don't do so good. Leastwise mine didn't.

    Maybe some others can come along and elaborate.

    Follow up.

    I worked up the energy to check your profile. Many of your hubs do indeed talk about a product, products, or product category.

    Yep, others are going to have to come along and dissect things further.

      paradigmsearch   If you are responding to my post here, let me tell you that I have had zero sales on those articles!  I wrote them specifically to see if I could get some sales, but so far...zilch!  Mine come from my main niche where I talk about issues and show items that deal with or resolve them.

    I used to make payout on Amazon/Ebay hubs alone. Now I haven't sold a single thing since the October 1, cookie policy change... sad

    Sadly, my retail sales on this site have really dropped off, while they've gone up on others.  I can only presume it's due to changes that admin has made on this end as those factors aren't in play elsewhere.

    I haven't earned anything yet because I don't have an adsense yet. ;3
