    Never thought I would see my Amazon daily earnings being greater than my HubPages earnings!

      That's wonderful, Sally! Congrats. It is a rare achievement.

        It probably is Venkatachari M but it has been very encouraging in spite of fewer ads being featured on our hubs.

      @My Great Friend, sallybea,
      You deserved and earned every penny. I use Amazon items
      that correlate with my hub items, but hardly none of the Amazon
      capsules are allowed to stay on hubs thanks to the
      HP Editing Team.
      Life goes on . . .

        Hi Kenneth, are you using links or Amazon capsules in your Hubs?

          kenneth averyposted 22 months agoin reply to this

          @sallybea, I use capsules. Should I be using links?

          1. sallybea profile image97
            sallybeaposted 22 months agoin reply to this

            I think you should try the links, just experiment a bit and see if they make a difference.  I do prefer capsules myself but staff don't seem to.  I think that capsules are more honest and open and I like that.

              @sallybea, Okay. Now for my last question today. LOL. Would you mind in your reply to show me HOW to get links to appear on the hubs and not capsules?
              You see. I am not a man of high I.Q. That is not a confession of weakness, but more as a confession of shame.

                You need to find a word in your text or paragraph which describes what it is you want to sell on amazon and then click the chain link and you should be able to search for the product you want on Amazon.  Once you click save you will have made a link to the product you chose.  The word or words will be high lighted.

      I generally earn 5 or 6 times more from Amazon than HP ads. But that comes off the back of a long learning process to discover what readers want from product comparison pages.

      1. sallybea profile image97
        sallybeaposted 22 months agoin reply to this

        That is interesting though I don't write comparison pages.  Definitely, something to think about, though.

        Good luck to you both. I have had no luck with my ebook on Amazon 'A Bride For Jake.' It is only my second novel but I felt it was quite good. Unfortunately its not selling well.I don't advertise except occasionally on social media. Really know nothing about internet marketing.

      Way to go! Now don't be surprised if you start seeing your Amazon earning rise in the months to come. For me the first real sales were the hardest but after that it just kind of took off.

    I have a few theories why, but I don't want this forum post to get too political.

    Maybe the niche sites are reaching a more targeted audience.

    I hope it continues for you.

    There's an interesting issue re using links as opposed to modules and that relates to the Federal Guidance on disclosure relating to advertising and marketing online

    The Federal requirements are detailed in ".com Disclosures - How to Make Effective Disclosures in Digital Advertising" (see https://www.ftc.gov/system/files/docume … tising.pdf for the guide)
    Pages i, ii and iii have a pretty fair summary on what's required - but it does seem to be any area of Trade regulation that's maybe not as well understood as it needs to be.

    I've never been clear how or why a link within a chunk of text would comply with the rules on compliance.

    I know every link to an Amazon product on my own websites is specifically followed by a very clear statement that the links leads to Amazon. Upfront and transparent...as required.

      Amazon pointing text links have little Amazon logos these days, so they are a lot less misleading.

      1. makingamark profile image65
        makingamarkposted 22 months agoin reply to this

        I guess that helps. Not sure that alone qualifies as full compliance though.

    2. sallybea profile image97
      sallybeaposted 22 months agoin reply to this

      makingamark I agree with you and I have the same notice on my own website regarding earning from Amazon  I once asked about this on this forum and was told that there was a notice at the bottom of our hubs to say that we earn from advertising.  It is one of the smallest notices I have ever seen, so small that I had not even noticed it:).

      1. makingamark profile image65
        makingamarkposted 22 months agoin reply to this

        ".com Disclosures - How to Make Effective Disclosures in Digital Advertising" (see https://www.ftc.gov/system/files/docume … tising.pdf for the guide) has very explicit messages about WHERE they expect to see statements.

        Tiny and bottom of the page isn't one of them.

    I am new to HubPages and this forum. Where can I learn more about creating profit through linking to Amazon?

    Yesterday, my Amazon daily earnings too was greater than my Hub Pages earnings.

      Nice one!  I expect low CPM is contributing to this factor but let's enjoy it while it is still happening.

    Just saw this thread. Congratulations Sally. You're obviously doing things right.

    I'm noticing the same thing. My Amazon earnings from niche sites do better than my HubPages earnings. I don't know if there is any reason, but Amazon does better on niche sites. My hubs with Amazon links and capsules that are still on the main site don't do as well.

    1. sallybea profile image97
      sallybeaposted 22 months agoin reply to this

      Thank you,  Glen.  Sales have been good but I am curious, how do you know which hubs the sales are coming from?  Where can I find this info?

      1. Glenn Stok profile image96
        Glenn Stokposted 22 months agoin reply to this

        I only know the sales that are specifically the items I have listed in the hubs and most of those sales are hubs in niche sites. However, I agree with your concern that there is no way to know other than that. I do have a lot of sales of items I never mention only because people tend to look around and buy other things. I wish I knew which hubs those sales originated from, same as you wish too.

          Will Apseposted 22 months agoin reply to this

          People seem to buy in batches, I know that I do. But I will search for info on the most important items or ones I least understand first. That is where high quality informative pages on products come in.

          1. sallybea profile image97
            sallybeaposted 22 months agoin reply to this

            People do buy in batches, sometimes 5 at a time.

          sallybeaposted 22 months agoin reply to this

          I did ask if it would be possible to introduce these stats but apparently, they are not made available to HubPages which is a shame.  With some sales, it is obvious which hub was responsible for the sale but I guess the others are just spontaneous purchases which don't match the subject of the Hub.
