    My sales are horrible and getting not many clicks and anything. When I write a hub and use...

    amazon capsule I usually use the get keyword tool and type in the keyword and the idems appear. My question is when I do this the idems that apprear and I save (Do they have my Amazon ID in teach idems code.  I think not but I don't know how to check it. I know if I chose each idem separate and I copy html code I can see my ID in the code.
    Thank you

    Mark HTML codes are for individual items which you think best suits to your hub, however it has some cons first one - you'll have to keep the tab on quantity of stock whether its available or not. Hence best advisable is to put the correct keywords in amazon product tab and let the system find multiple products according to the keywords. Regarding amazon sales i'm also on the same boat as you are. I too have not stricked a deal yet.

    yes, when you send someone to amazon from your hub, your amazon ID is included

    Getting sales on Amazon takes time I guess. I haven't made any sales yet either. When you have signed up, simply put Amazon ads in as many articles as possible in appropriate positions and you'll learn gradually what works and what does not.

    When you registered here you had the opportunity to put your amazon ID in as part of the registration process.  If you provided your ID, then your code is included, and you are getting credit.

    When you are logged in, click on the "my account" page, then select "Affiliate Settings" under the "Your Account" heading.  If your ID is in there, you are getting credit.  If not, fill in your affiliate ID to make sure you are credited for your sales.

    Any program where the visitor has to make a purchase, you really need a good amount of traffic to get a sufficient purchase rate.  That's unlike pay per click such as the adsense ads where they pay for every click.

    So for example if you hub gets 100 views, and say 5 of those people click an Amazon item (which would be a pretty good response), then none of those might actually make a purchase.  But out of 100 visitors to Amazon a few might purchase something.

    try building more traffic points such as dry articles (article base or ezine articles).  Maybe you're not reaching your target market.  Not everyone uses hubpages

    I don't try to make money directly with my Hubs so I don't have much experience in this. But as someone who makes money online I would say Hubpages is probably not the best way to make money. They put so many 'distracting' ads and links to your hubs that divert people from Clicking your Amazon ads.

    Furthermore the keywords people use to find your hub matters a lot, probably more than anything. Certain keywords are 'information keywords' and others are 'buying keywords'. When people come to your Hub with an information keyword they are very unlikely to buy. Simply because they are not in the right part of the buying process yet.

    Make sure to enter your affiliate id for Amazon in your account settings. Otherwise you won't be getting credit for any sales!

    Other than that try increasing the traffic of the hubs you own by building links to them. That's always a great start.

    Have a nice day!

    You'll need to be patient. After several years the clicks will amass.

    Remember if you use the amazon capsule you'll be sharing " ad space"  so to speak with Hubpages. So your affiliate id will not always be the one displayed in your hubs. If you hyperlink a word to the product in your text then you gwt 100% of the clicks under your affliate id. Hyperlinked text is more effective than amazon capsules.

    in over a year i have made just 3 sales. That too on hubs i never expected anything out of it as it had only pics on it. And strangely enough i have put amazon products on over 100 posts here and on blog spot but only one blog made sale and that too all 3 of mine with in period of 5 days. Yes Amazon has ur ID if you have inserted it in affiliate pages here. I have already have about 20,000 page views on Hubpages only and yet amazon products have been clicked only 51 times and only 3 sales. so no harm in putting them up.. who knows when someone would buy anything from your account.

    Internet publishers who use AmazonTM & E-bayTM capsules can add value to their original and good content, by choosing optimum keywords in the search area for items in the capsules. read more
