amazon question

    In amazon.

    If you notice that you have earned money from a sale on a product is there any way you can work out which article it has come from.

    Thanks in advance

      Go to "view full report" in your earnings summary and every single thing ordered will be there.

      Unfortunately Mark didn't really answer your question. 

      While you can see all of the things you sold via Amazon when you check the stats, you do NOT get information on exactly which Hub the sales came from.

    yes relache, you are on the ball that is what I am chasing.  We need or I do anyway want to know which hub got me that earnings as the article does not always represent what hub we wrote to actualy suit or warrant that sale.

    So is there a way of doing it  ???? any other ideas

      Affiliate tracking software may be a good idea, although you do have to have a webhost account and buy the affiliate tracking software...I suppose it would be good if we could apply different amazon id's for a start, we get 100 ids for the astore associate program, so it would make sense if we could use them for different promotions like in a series of hubs, although you'd only get a rough idea, so maybe some type of tracking software could be used!

      Not on HubPages.  All you can do is look at what people bought, and guess!

    What they have said and also
    the worse comes to worse method
    where you look at the product and try to work back where it came from

    Perhaps you sold a coffee machine, so it might have came from your hub on coffee making (if you have one)!

    But I guess beyond that the next alternative is to use the tracking ids, i'm unsure if google analytics can track outgoing links to amazon?
