Sorry guys, I feel really stupid that I can't seem to get this right. I am fairly new and I've been trying to get Amazon and Konteri added. The lovely Susana S gave me fabulous instructions to add Amazon and I have followed them. I do see my Amazon choices on my hub. However... when I check my affiliate settings under my account Amazon is listed, but there is nothing in the "code" box beside it. Does that mean that Yes, I've linked to Amazon but I won't get credit for any purchases? If so, what do I put in that box?
Now, with Konteri I do have my affiliate number in the corresponding box but I don't see any Konteri ads on my hub? Have I missed the boat somewhere? I only entered my 6 digit number from the affiliate link in the box.
I do have another question, but it's a completely different topic so I'll post it seperately.
Thanks in advance. By the way... you are a funny group
Kontera highlights specific words in your content that links to ads. This is why "content rich" hubs are so important. If, on the Affiliate Settings, it says "Set" or "Active" by Kontera and you number then you should be in good shape.
Amazon should have emailed you a publisher number. Go back through old emails from them. Find the number, cut and paste it in your Affiliate Settings box by Amazon. When you update it should also say "Set" or "Active".
I would also highly suggest getting Analytics set up if it's not done already. There is much valuable information on there.
Thanks Goldenpath. I'm getting closer each time. I think I've got it now. I had to go and register for my affiliate code.
waiting... waiting... ok, you can all stop laughing now!
One last questions and I think I'll have this licked. Now my affiliate page shows all my affiliate programs with a code and a "set" code beside them.
My question is this. The links I have to Amazon were put in there prior to having an affiliate code. I was going to edit the hub and put new links in after searching logged in as an affiliate. That way I'd be sure all was right with the world. However, when I edit the Amazon hub it's not links that are there. It shows the ASINS #. Remembering these were put there prior to becoming an affiliate, am I still okay?
Hi again Brigitte Looks like you're getting all sorted out To answer your last question - amazon will take the url you put in and convert it to the ASIN automatically - that's completely normal. The only consequence of having amazon on your hubs before you have your affiliate ID inserted in your settings is that any sales will go to hubpages. (I wouldn't worry about that though because you probably don't have enough visitors yet to get any sales.)
It might be worth checking whether you really do want to add Kontera links (see this hub by Relache: http://hubpages.com/hub/Improve-Your-Hub-Earnings).
Log out and look for your Kontera ads. Can't see them if you're logged in. Hope that helps.

I'm wondering if anyone can enlighten me on copyright and attribution issues with respect to products sold on Amazon. If I write a hub that focuses specifically on one or more Amazon products, where do I stand with respect to using the full-size images corresponding to the products I select for the...

My Amazon Affiliate account is deactivated!!!When I opened my amazon affiliate account, it says my account is deactivated. The same account is linked with my hubpages account. I am still earning from this account or I have to do something to activate it for hubpages?
