    Thought I would share a small success story with everyone. I'm using Amazon Associates (along with AdSense) to monetize most of my hubs here at Hubpages, and woke this morning to a nice report of my Valentine's Day activity.

    My Amazon referrals through Hubpages yesterday made close to $500 in purchases, generating a commission (after shipping) in excess of $30-40 or so, depending on what rate tier I end up with at month's end.

    I've been focusing mostly on my blogs lately, but this is an inspiring little boost and a reminder to start increasing my Hubpages footprint. Wishing everyone similar good fortune.

    Congrats from me, too! I just scanned some of your Hubs to look at your approach...I never knew there were so many choices in desk lamps! So glad this is working for you.

      I've really primarily been running some 'experiments' with my hubs since joining in December using a varying combination of content and keyword targeting. As wide a variety as possible.

      Tracking them to date is bringing me nearer I feel to developing a good instinct for what elements and product targets create that "just right" mix for the Google SERPs, and thus, a good strategy moving forward.

    Amazon has been great this month! I made $50ish on Saturday which is my highest day yet. This month, I've made 50/50 earnings from Amazon/Adsense...Amazon has tons of potential! I always thought that I'd make more with Adsense.

      Congratulations! $50 in a day is a great day from any combination of sources.

      AdSense and Amazon work well in conjunction here it seems, which is unlike my own experiences blogging. I think it may have to do somewhat with the nature of Hubpages by attracting a balanced mix of "information gatherers" and consumers over a wide variety of hub topics.

    Thank you for sharing your Amazon success Mike. I'm glad Valentine's Day was a great success!

    Thanks for the kind words everyone. Writing or marketing online can be an extremely solitary experience, so a bit of success and the encouragement of others really does mean a lot.

    I'm hopeful that by increasing my efforts here I will be able to share in some of the larger successes of many of the established membership who have been so kind as to share how they achieved them.

    One (or more) of my hubs was simply in the right place at the right time for someone (or more than one someone) who visited Amazon through one of my Amazon links and decided to do a little extended shopping.

    The most interesting part was the diversity of the items purchased. Just a couple were directly related to any of my hubs. It does show however than getting "in between" a shopper and Amazon is a nice place to be wink

    Wow, that's a healthy day! Really shows the earnings potential of Amazon. Up until now, I haven't focused much attention on Amazon; I may have to reconsider that.

      Few things feel as good as getting an actual tangible monetary return for your efforts smile

    I feel a little silly about even posting about it, with so many experienced hubbers here earning "real" money month after month.

    Was just nice to get a little wind in my sails on Hubpages wink

    Been here just over 2 months just sort of feeling things out with 12 rather crappy (at best) hubs, and made about $45 in AdSense and Amazon combined.

    The one key element that Hubpages provides is a outstanding internal link structure. There are so many pages here with page rank that the more you create, post, or comment leads to more and more links with PR juice to pass. My bedding hub attained a PR2 within something crazy like a week, and brings traffic daily.

    Clearly, Hubpages in that regard rewards all aspects of active membership activity.

    Mike smile

      The fact that you are earning anything at all means that you are doing something right!
