Does anyone know if it's possible to get decent statistics out of Amazon associates. I can see that since I started writing on hubpages I'm getting quite a few clicks on Amazon items. Is it possible to know what products people are clicking on, or do you just get detailed information on purchases?
Hey there Dan, I have not had much luck with Amazon myself, however I read a really good hub by Kirstenblog today, its her latest, explains how she made amazon work for her, really useful and worth checking out. And Nelle Hoxie also worth a read, she has sad success with that and shares her knowledge too. Hope that helps welcome to HP.
Sorry it was meant to say she has had, not she has sad! Damn typos
Thanks - I'll check those hubs out.
I seem to be getting good clicks to Amazon, but I'm not sure how many clicks are coming from my other sites (I've been an associate since the last century so I have some very old Amazon links left in corners of the Internet!)
Dan, you're only going to get info about items purchased. If you run more than one site, you can get distinct IDs for each so that you can tell which site general traffic is coming from, but that's about it.
Yes the Amazon statistics aren't great. What I've done is build a few Amazon hubs, then if I get a sale of an item then I will hopefully be able to tell what hub it was from. Although from previous experience I've found I sell all kinds of stuff as people get carried away and start buying all manner of things!

Kontera seemed pretty useless even when I was earning with it because the click were not really all that profitable. One AdSense click seems to be worth more than a Kontera click even when it's like one of the...

Someone told me that she purchased products from Amazon via my hubs last week. This is not showing up on my affiliate account - not even any clicks! Why?? She said she got an email from Amazon that the items have been shipped already. I used the Amazon capsule to display the items on my hubs.

I know about the rules of not clicking on your own google adsense ads, but what about your amazon ads? Can your spouse click through them to buy items on Amazon and then you earn a commission?It doesn't seem right, but I thought I would ask nonetheless.

My Adsense earnigns have been dropping recently, mostly down to my focus on sales hubs. Today I attempted to find something to write about that would generate a bit more Adsense revenue for me.Unfortunately something seems to have happened. Whenever I look at a topic, bring in some...

238 impressions (8 days into) this month, 196 clicks, £0.16 earned (about 20-25 cents).Is promoting eBay a waste of time, my CTR must be about 80%+ but the revenue is shockingly bad. The eBay listings are indexed as keywords which do bring extra traffic but is it worth the hassle? Even...
