Much to my surprise, I've made my first Amazon sale just after the changes to Squidoo style ads. My hubs are not really aimed at sales, and only generate a few clicks. Following the change to Squidoo style ads this week, there was a click, which has now resulted in a sale. The commission is a nice boost, and very welcome.
Like many people, I didn't think the change would be a good thing. One ad had to be removed as the new format distorted the product image. But hey, two days later, the balance on my account was up. On investigation, I found a product had been shipped.
Let's hope this is the start of a new trend for everyone. Hats off to HP for trying something new.

Amazon changed their affiliate program yesterday by cutting the payout for most affiliates by half or more. Has HubPages addressed how these changes will affect content providers here?
