In order to sign up for HP's Amazon Program I have to:
"Associate an approved Google AdSense account"
I don't have an adSense a/c; I just now applied but don't know if my old
website will help get me approved. All of my lenses use Squidoo's Aff code.
So, does this mean I won't earn any money even if I sell something on Amazon?
I'm lost with the whole AdSense thing - almost to the point of giving up on it.
On HubPages, my AdSense status is displayed as active, and I have an affiliate code. When I click on the link to take me to my AdSense account, I get a message stating that my application is still under review. All of the displays on my home page appear to be permanently set to zero. It has been this way for over a year, and I became so weary of it I have pretty much stopped checking.
Mind you, I'm far from au courant with the finer points of online writing, so maybe I'm overlooking something obvious.
I am too very confused. I read that we can add our own amazon affiliate code but I haven't the slightest. I just published my first hub (brand new) last night and I am waiting to get back work on whether or not it is approved....this is definitely a WAY different experience than squidoo.
Did you already have your account moved? I read where you can't use
an existing HP a/c for your transferred lenses. So, if you haven't moved
your account, you'll be getting a new one when your stuff get moved.
I set my account up through the squidoo module on top of my dashboard and I have the info about my lenses being moved by a certain date on my new profile stuff here at hubpages. I just jumped on the bandwagon and wrote an article to get a feel for how it all works here, which I think is going to make lens masters with thin content very sad. I did not have an account before squidoo told me yesterday about the sell out.
Oh, that's GREAT! You're ahead of the game.
I'm worried about my earnings. And now I see this
account 'HomeArtist' won't hold up for the move,
so I'll have to delete it.
That's just a minor inconvenience, lol.
Sounds good for you, though!
I really think only 2 out of my 8 lenses are going to meet the quality criteria of the site but I am still really hopeful. Have plans for some new stuff though that I knew wouldn't have worked well at squidoo.
Cassandra, forget about getting an Amazon affiliate account of your own. You will ultimately make more with the HP Amazon program, so I would just wait until you can get into that. Sure, you will lose a few sales in the short term but you'll get larger commissions later, which should more than make up.
Hi Cassandra and welcome
With the Amazon program on HubPages you can use your own Amazon affiliate account, or you use HP's. Using the HP program gives you higher commissions generally because it is a shared account so more items are sold which increases the tier.
I set up my own Amazon affiliates before HP started their program so I am still using my own. all you have to do is give HP your affiliate information and then you can add Amazon capsules in your hubs.
And I have to have absence for that also? Cause I already have an Amazon affiliate account of my own.... Just wondering what I have to do here it get the ball rolling? I
Yes, you need Adsense for all aspects of the HP Earnings Program.
If you already have an Amazon account of your own, you probably should go on using it - at least until you hit payout, then you can consider transferring over to HubPages' account. Just go to your "My Account" tab, then click on "Earnings" and you'll see where to paste your Amazon ID.
Once you've done that, you can use Amazon capsules in your Hubs. You don't need to use affiliate code in the capsules, just paste in the ASIN of the product you want, or use keywords to find the products.
Thank you, I do have an Amazon account but didn't know that I could use it without the Google Ad Sense account. I've been turned down for Google and told to retry later on after 10 hubs, did that and then turned down again. All my articles have well over 800 words.
Cassandra, I do wish HubPages would change that advice. Adsense may officially say 10 Hubs is enough, but in practice it's years since I've seen anyone approved with less than 20. Be patient and apply again when you get to that level, it will be worth it.
I think its advisable to publish at least 15 hubs first. talking my experience, I got turned down about 4 times and I almost gave up. After publishing 15 hubs (mostly poems less than 800 words, I got approved. i'm not sure if I was lucky or because I first created a google analytic account then apply so I got approved after that. Create an analytic account through hubpages in the earning section and follow the instruction and see if you get accepted
I appreciate and commend you for your tenacious persistence.

Why is it taking so long for Google to approve my account? Its been almost a week and its really annoying me because I'm getting some pretty good traffic... am I just being impatient?

Since 2010, I've been accumulating pennies in my Google Adsense account, waiting for the day I'd hit the $100 pay threshold. I checked it a couple of weeks ago, it was at $94 and change. Today, all the numbers are GONE!!! I see no evidence that it's been added to my HubPages ads...
