I've noticed an increase in Amazon sales - most I've ever had. Anyone else noticed that? Is hubpages emphasizing Amazon more? They also earn through it.
A tiny bit. Not enough to get excited about
Used to earn between $100-$300 per month on Amazon sales
No, unfortunately not. But my Amazon sales have always been anemic.
Mine are actually down a bit, but ad earnings are up.
I deleted many of my Amazon links when HP said we can only link if we have personal experience to the specific product. Although many of my Amazon links pertained to the topic, I deleted those that didn't follow HP's newfound guidelines. As a result, I don't have many Amazon links in my articles, with the exception of those that got moved to the higher earning niches sites when Maven first took over.
Product reviews are where I earn from Amazon links.
"Product reviews are where I earn from Amazon links."
What do you mean?
Well, I don't use Amazon so does that mean I can't really put links on my article? That's a bummer. I want to try it too.
It doesn't matter if you use Amazon; it's whether you are familiar with the product you refer to in your article. For example I link to books (most often). If I don't own the book, I'll download the free preview so I can get a feel for it and I can usually find a relevant quote which can be added to the article.
I own a lot of books though, so I don't do that very often
Not at all. But Amazon sales has never been my forte. They're as low as ever.
No big changes here. The general trend runs with the seasonal, which is downwards until August/September. There was a slight uptick when Americans got their stimulus checks but that's gone now.
Okay. Thanks. Probably just got lucky for a month. Thanks.
Is it easy to set up an amazon account? I have tried putting links in, but they are removed....how do you do it?
wpcooper, go into "Earnings" by way of "Account" and click on "Configure" next to the Amazon tab. HP will guide you from there. While you're there, make sure you've activated the ad program, otherwise you won't earn from the (annoying) ads.
You have to apply to Amazon to become an Amazon Affilate. In the old days, they used to look at how much traffic your site gets. Not sure what happens these days.
Once Amazon accepts you as an affiliate, you supply the link to hubpages. Not sure about who is removing your link.
We used to do that and get paid directly by Amazon. If I'm not mistaken, Hubpages use their own affiliate account now and we get our proportional cut out of the takings.
wpcooper - HP will "clip" (i.e. remove) Amazon links if they think you have too many, or they think they aren't relevant.
I am still p*ssed off with Amazon for halving our commission percentages a year ago, to be honest, but there's not much I can do about it. Things would be so much rosier if that hadn't happened.
Not really, hubpages doesn't like me putting amazon sales on my hubs. Might be my niche or something but they always get removed right away.

Now that we are 'all in this together' so to speak with the new HP Amazon program, it is in all our interests to get as many sales as possible, as we will all benefit.I'll start.If your hub is all about cleaning carpets, for example, a hub entitled How to Clean Carpets may encompass all if your hub...

Are Amazon links in hub a waste of time?Do people even click on those? How likely are people to buy something just after reading a hub?

OK, so it's probably too soon to tell, but along with getting a higher percentage of my views from Google searches, it looks a bit like my Amazon sales have increased both in number and amount since we switched from subdomains to a single domain. Is anyone else seeing this? Even if it isn't the...

I have a question for those of you who use Amazon in your hubs. Let's say that you are writing a hub with a list of different products. Do you think it's better to put all the amazon stuff at the bottom of the hub, all in one place, or to spread the ads throughout the hub, with one ad per product?...

Amazon used to account for half my earnings on HubPages with sales happening every day. Now for the past five days (July 28 – Aug 1) I had zero sales. I’m still getting Google traffic to my articles that have Amazon capsules and Amazon text links. So I’m wondering what changed. Hopefully the HP...
