I'm sure this has come up before...(**imagine teeny-tiny font, and red face...maybe it was even I who asked**), but I do not recall the answer.
I rarely get sales from my Amazon capsules, and when I do, it is a pleasant surprise. But, is there any way to find out which hub produced the click-through and purchase?
I believe that I have seen this question asked and answered, and the answer was no. There is no way to tell. I usually have a pretty good guess, because the products are related to one of my hubs, but then I only have a few which feature Amazon products. Once in a while I get a sale that is really out of the blue, and unrelated to anything I have written about.
Thanks...I appreciate you patience with this old dog. It is kind of frustrating, though; it would be nice to know, for future reference as to whether or not to put any product capsules...errrrr...excuse me; now it's supposed to be in-line links...whatever..
Well I'd sure like to be notified when an amazon product is sold on my hubs. Having said this - I rarely use the amazon capsule since the new change has been enforced.
It really hurts to be very limited with amazon capsules. For the pst month, maybe two, the CPM has been ridiculously low. Amazon sales are needed to get me to payout.
If you check your earnings and see that they've gone up, check Amazon Sales Reports which will tell you what has been sold, when it was sold, how much people paid and how much you earned. It won't relate to a specific hub, but at least you'll know that you earned on a given day.
You normally can tell just by looking at your overall earnings if they are higher than usual, but either way, it just takes a minute to check. I check my earnings every day.
What's cool is that when people pass through your advertising portal what ever they buy you get credit for, even if it's an item with no relation whatsoever to your ad.
Also, I use both visual and link ads and have never had a problem having articles featured or moved to niches, but I usually post fewer than 3 and only do so when it's really relevant. I make a fair amount of sales most months as a result.
What I have always wanted, in addition to knowing which hub made the sale, is to know all of the sales even the one's that are considered to belong to HP. Sales are not that heavy so maybe just by chance I have a hub making sales and I don't know about it.

I have a question for those of you who use Amazon in your hubs. Let's say that you are writing a hub with a list of different products. Do you think it's better to put all the amazon stuff at the bottom of the hub, all in one place, or to spread the ads throughout the hub, with one ad per product?...

I am almost ready to publish a new article, and I want to add two Amazon Capsules. I know how to do it the old way. But I saw on lobobrandon and a few other's hubs a different way. There is just an orange "A" and what looks like a hyperlink, and when clicked, it takes the reader right to...

Hi MickiIf you've noticed I've not written any hubs recently, I'm on my vacations from University and thought of doing a 30 hubs in 30 days challenge. Rather, I've gone for a 30 Wizzley articles in 30 days - for a good reason: Their amazon Capsules are way better formatted - users feel like...
