Everytime I make a Google search I add an extra keyword. Yes! it's "hubpages"
Why not? If you're looking for information then why not give your fellow hubbers first option. OK, you may not find what you're looking for but with the quality on Hubpages the chances are you will.
So add that keyword, click on the feedback or even leave a comment.
If you're doing online shopping then you might even find what you want with the added bonus of sending a few digital cents to one of your brothers or sisters in the Hubpages family.
Nothing wrong with a little nepotism :-)
I like this idea. Sometimes I will search on HP first, but I like the idea of using google. There are so many interesting, amazing articles here. I don't see a problem with clicking on an Amazon ad if you're truly interested in buying. I think the problem is clicking on adsense ads.
I wonder how many people would have to do this before HubPages actually becomes one of the included words in a suggested search term?
This is a great idea. By sharing I help out other writers here. Why not do it this way also.
This is a really thoughtful thing to do for your fellow Hubbers.
I purchase items from Amazon frequently. I was under the impression that we were not supposed to click on any Amazon ads in HP, or any ads at all.
After reading what you wrote, I went to the HP FAQ section, and the Learning Center, to see if there was any information about it. Frankly, I could not find a thing.
Are we allowed to purchase Amazon items through our fellow Hubbers' articles? If so, I could have been helping them a great deal, as a lot of my purchases online are through Amazon.
It would be nice if the answer to my question was easy to find; perhaps I missed it. What is the policy about purchasing through Amazon, or eBay, via another person's hub?
I remember a post from Simone that said you could click on the Amazon link if something interests you.
The rule of thumb I use is that if I am personally interested in an item a Hubber is selling, I will click on it. But I am not going to click on a Hubber's link just to buy something I was going to buy anyway. If we keep the clicking natural, we can avoid getting in trouble for unnatural clicks.
This is a great idea. I also buy many things on Amazon and Ebay so why not do it through another hub?
Have you come across anything since that says we can't?
I've been adding HP to my searches since the switch to HP. Seems it's the only way I can find most of my pages. It is good for finding other writers here too. Maybe it will boost ratings for us. Hope so.

After 3 months of active work my earnings through Amazon was only 3.70$. Although the conversion was 20% - 13 sales, with 64 clicks (goods is very cheap - the cost of 1, 99$).Me interests, whether there are people who earn here by means of Amazon (at least 100 dollars a month)?

Something just occured to me, not only are we writers here but we are ALSO CONSUMERS. I see nothing wrong with clicking on a fellow hubbers google ad if it's something we are interested in. I am getting the feeling that some people are afraid to do this for fear of reprisal for being click happy...

This forum is intended for hubbers who use Google Adwords to drive more traffic to their hubs.

The reason I'm wondering is because the advertisements are kind of obtrusive and ugly. I like that they mutable and you can design a product list for them, but I know I have never really even thought about buying something from an Amazon link, and rarely even click them. I was just...
