    I've just started focusing on amazon capsules few days back. Does anybody out there really make money thru amazon? How much can you earn per year using Amazon? Is it more rewarding than adsense?

      Yes
      A lot
      Way more rewarding for me than adsense.

      Write quality articles, do your research, write about products you know, do keyword research and you're good to go.

      according to me, if you want to earn through amazon then try to writing about latest produces, optimize and make keyword according to buy it. and if you want to earn from google adsense then try to make your hubs keyword rich so ads will be display according to your hub topic. if ads are not matching to you hub topic then chance are very less for clicks.

    I earn over $1000 a month with Amazon each month, which is a lot more than my adsense earnings.

    Write high quality hubs, and you should start to see the earnings roll in.

      This is very cool. You should be getting much organic search engine traffic.

      How long did it take until you actually started earning?

        Well I only actually started writing on hubpages again around March/April last year, started seeing the earnings come in around 3-4 months after that!

    Amazon can definitely be a good earner. I don't make anywhere near $1000, but I regularly get $60-80, which is similar to the amount I make from adsense on my hubs, and I've had months of up to around $130. And that's with probably less than half of my hubs targetted at amazon earnings.

    Don't be put off if you make a few amazon hubs and don't earn anything. My personal experience is that most of the ones I make earn little or nothing, but a few of them make quite good amounts. You just have to find the right products and the right keywords.

      If you have a good base, and over $100 a month is always a good start, then it should not take your earnings long to improve.

      I have a few hubs with a few tips which might help you out, as do some other top hubbers.  Keep reading, keep writing, and good luck!

    Thanks for asking that Nanospeck! and thanks for the fan mail! I've been trying to figure out how Adsense pays since I have my tracking number from them now. I have ad clicks too but no pay, a little frustrated. I posted a question about it but it remains unanswered. Cant figure out if I get paid for all clicks or just 60% of clicks. Was wondering about Amazon too. Still trying to figure all this out but I have a few ideas now. I almost think that Amazon would be easier for earning more money if you write about the right topics with proper keyword use. My Amazon products are all books and I just can't see those selling very well. Going to look into other topics/items for them.

      Someone correct me if I'm wrong here since I'm still new.

      The way I understand it is 60% of the time HP shows your AdSense ads, the other 40% they show theirs. IF when you ads are showing and someone clicks on one you get the credit.  When its your ad you get 100% of the click.

      I know from having my own web site that if you generate enough page views Google will also start  paying you so much per thousand page views. How much will depend on the topic and keywords. You will mostly earn money from the clicks, not page views.
      This should help explain how all of the programs pay out:

        Yes that's correct, the adverst are rotated on a 60/40 split, if someone clicks on your 60% then you get 100% of those profits.

        While Google does pay a small amount on pageviews, it is so incredibly small I don't think it really matters who gets that!

      I see no-one answered you She-rah. As has been explained, you will only get the adsense clicks 60% of the time. Hubpages gets the other 40%.
      You will not get paid out until you have earned $100.
      With Amazon, you don't get paid for clicks, but when someone buys you get 100% of the commission, again they don't pay out until you have reached the minimum, which is I think $100 but you can change that in your amazon preferences to a higher figure if you prefer.

    There are plenty of people who earn more than me on here, you might also want to check out hubs by Darkside and Sunforged, who have spent a lot of time putting together some great Hubpages guides!

    Okay, so no one has explained HOW you earn from Amazon.  I saw it on the affiliates page, but I don't understand how you earn from Amazon.

    My Adsense request keeps getting blocked by Google for some reason, so I can't use that.

    You get a percentage of each sale with Amazon

        Add amazon capsule on your hub. Amazon capsule can be added from the left hand sidebar.
