I feel like I was doing better on Squidoo with sales from my own Amazon Associates account than I am doing with the Hubpages Amazon account which I have been using since my lenses transferred. If I go ahead and deactivate the Hubpages Amazon Account, will I have to manually go back and enter all of my Amazon Associates links into each Amazon module, or is there an easier way to do this?
And I am unclear on whether I will only be able to use 2 Amazon Associates links in the entire Hub, or 1 per 50 words of content?
Has anyone deactivated their Hubpages Amazon account and gone back to an Amazon Associates account of their own who can share their experience?
If you look at the capsules, there's absolutely no difference in what is displayed whether you're using your own Amazon ID or via HubPages.
That means the only way switching could improve your earnings is if you believe HubPages isn't sharing the earnings honestly on their program. I don't think there's any reason to think that.
Instead, take a look at your traffic - has it changed since moving from Squidoo? If it has dropped, or you have fewer lenses featured, then there's your reason.
If you want to go ahead anyway, then all you have to do is change the association on your Earnings page. That will change all the capsules automatically.
Thanks for the response, Marisa.
All of my hubs are featured and my traffic is actually up on Hubpages. But I seem to be making about half the number of sales I did last year this time (with fewer lenses).
This makes sense with splitting the impressions 60/40 with Hubpages,
I am also seeing a 3rd "tag" appearing in my Amazon capsules which is not Hubpages-20 or my own HubacctXXXX-20 tag. The format is the same as my HP tag, just a different 4 numbers, so HubacctYYYY-20. Any idea what that could be?
So, if I switch to my Amazon Associates ID, will I have to cut back to only 2 Amazon modules per hub, or will the "1 module per 50 words of copy" rule apply?

Every day (or almost every day), I go on to my Amazon Associates account to check stats. Today, I saw my income for the month to date had reduced from when I checked it yesterday. Thinking it was due perhaps to returns or simply a "blip", I went on a few times through the day and see it...

Question for UK peeps! Do you use Amazon UK or US for your Amazon Associates account?I'm in the US asking for a friend who is in the UK who just signed up. The help pages on Amazon say you need a different account for each country you want to sell in, but not sure how this works with hubpages. I'm...

I never have before, but in the past week I have made 6 separate sales through Amazon. Just wondering if anybody else is having this experience. Maybe it's just a fluke.

Hubpages is going to lose since they will likely exceed the free book threshold which will mean no commission from Amazon. Since we are now connected to hubpages we will likely lose too. I think I will pull all my Amazon ads since it will do no good to have them here if I understand the following...
