I removed most of the Amazon capsules from my pieces (or they were removed by HP) during the last do-over at the end of 2017. There are a few still out there. So, I was excited to find I'd earned $4 and change from an Amazon sale .... EXCEPT ... the sale was for sex toys! I have NOTHING written about sex or such toys, and I can't figure out which article it came from. Is there some other way that Google or HP ads end up as Amazon sales to me? I really am incredulous about this. But ... it's $4.73 so, It's all good, lol.
Basically what everyone else said. I, too have seen some weird product sales that have nothing to do with my niche. Once someone clicks from your page to Amazon, doesn't matter what they buy. Just be thankful for the sales even if it's sex toys lol
If the reader clicked on an ad on an article and then searched for and bought other products, un-related to the original ad, you still benefit from the sale.
I generally have musical instruments for sale on my pages. Sometimes I wind up with commissions for sex toys, or rolling trays, or any number of other things. I spend the money at the grocery store on wine and steaks.
Some years back I got credit when someone purchased a pile of Penthouse magazine back issues from Amazon. I was like "You GO, dude." Haha!

But as a newbie in this entire scenario, I am clueless about the way it all happens. I cannot find any link...

I just received an email notification that products were removed from one of my hubs because I "must provide relevant experience." One of the products that was removed is one I have used for a long time and mentioned my experience in the hub. Do we have to go into great detail about our...

I am self published, so I add amazon modules to my hubpages where ever they are relevant. Lately I've noticed that my sales on Amazon don't line up with my royalties on hubpages. I can see a clickout for each sale, but out of the last 10+ sales on my Amazon Author account, only...
