    I've just been tooling along getting no nibbles from my Amazon capsules. I then read a post a day or so ago where someone (ryankett maybe?) added lots more relevant tags to his hubs and his traffic shot up. So I figured I'd give it a go and messed with my tags.

    Maybe the timing was coincidental, but yesterday my traffic for that one particular hub doubled AND I made my first ever Amazon sale! Hooray! It was only a $30.00 blow dryer, but still! Woo hoo!

      I never knew people actually clicked those links... I put Ebay and Amazon capsules up to make the large pile of words look less and so makes it easier to read.

      Hi, congrats. Yes it was me that said about maximising the number of tags.

      I have also seen an increase in numbers to Amazon since doing it. I guess the logic is simple.... more traffic equals more clicks!

      Still waiting for my first Amazon sale though, hopefully it will be a $20,000 diamond engagement ring or something!

    Im off now to try this out. So bothered about Amazon non sales, making me frustrated. And ive been rejected by Ebay anyway, so i'll stick with Amazon till it works out for me. I hope (fingers crossed) lol
