    I think people might be peeved that they clicked looking for an article and found a straight up advertisement. I'm new at this too - def not an SEO guru, but I'd try giving a little more to the reader and a more subtle sell.

    If you think about when you are searching for info yourself, it's really annoying when it's just promotional stuff and you immediately click the back button. You need to hook them in to hang around a bit longer.

    Having said that, I wouldn't expect a high Amazon conversion rate and 50 clicks isn't really a lot.

    Well my Amazon conversion rate is normally just under 1% on about 500 clicks per month (at least it is this month). So no sales from 50 clicks is normal.

    I would be asking yourself however, how come I am getting 500 Amazon clicks per month with 185 hubs.... whilst you are getting just 50 with 155 hubs?

    I think that aquaseacreative is onto something there, all you are rea lly doing is giving people a huge list of items..... whilst my sales pages generally look something like this http://hubpages.com/hub/USB-Humping-Dog

    Look at hubs by Nelle Hoxie and Mark Knowles for good examples of sales pages.

      Some of yours dont look too bad to be honest, your fishing ones looked alright, but this one http://hubpages.com/hub/Buy-A-Swarovski … ent-Online is just way over the top, you have no images, and far too many items.....

    Check out Nelle Hoxie's hubs to see the proper way to do a hub aimed at Amazon buyers.

    Out of 30-something hubs of mine, only 12 push Amazon products. I get way more than 500 Amazon clicks per month and have an average monthly conversion rate of around 4%.

    There definitely is a way to do Amazon properly. UW gave you good advice. I've learned everything I know about Amazon sales from Nelle, and it has definitely paid off.

    In addition to Nelle's approach, I have found that singling out individual items and really writing each one up with both pro's and con's has driven a lot of sales. When you can come up with something slightly negative to say about a product along with the good, you are seen as an unbiased review. Good Lord, I've sold so many dang cookbooks, blow dryers and Christmas cards it's pathetic! smile

    The other trick to Amazon is to write copy and intro text that is geared to someone in the shopping frame of mind -- not someone who wants to read and learn. Screw teaching them something and just give them sales copy, plain and simple. They may not buy what I'm selling, but quite often they buy something from Amazon. About 50% of the stuff I've sold the past few months were not things I was selling. Individual sales have ranged from $10 for a Christmas ornament up to $400 on some electronic stuff that I don't even know what it is! smile

    My top seller right now is a roaster oven.  Sold 4 in one day!

    If I'm writing to sell, I put my own twist of writing into it, I generally write to sell items I have or have used so I have a working knowledge of the item.

      You go girl!!!! Those should sell right through the Christmas Holidays too. Although they might not do well for Valentines Day. At least I hope not.

    I decided to try some buy online type Amazon orientated hubs recently. I sold a Nikon camera a few days after launching the first along with several Zhu Zhu pets. That brought in $35. Since then, nothing. None of them have really had time to mature in Google yet but I'm not expecting ten buy online hubs will bring in much. It's more of a pilot project to see if I have the ability to sell through Amazon.

      LOL of course you have the ability to sell through Amazon - or as much as anyone does. It is a harder nut to crack these days.

    Shoot for at least 800 words of marketing copy - 1,200 might even be better.

    I just kind of went whole hog with Amazon this Christmas and it actually really paid off.  Sold multiple X-Boxes for about 300 dollars each and dozens of games and toys.  Never really thought it was possible, but if you get people who want to buy apparently it isn't as hard as I thought.

    Thanks everyone, Thats taken on board! Up untill now I have been making my hubs based on generating income through adsense - which I have been doing OK on. So i am new to amazon so will see how it goes.
    do you think there is more earning potential with Amazon than Adsense?
