It was a good day yesterday - I had my first Amazon sale. Not from one of my ads, but a sale for $5, netting me a whole $.20. It's definitely a start, and exciting.
And my traffic yesterday set a record for visits in one day - higher than ever before, I think.
And I had a new hub, only indexed for 2 days, suddenly take off with organic traffic - in just 2 days organic has passed HP traffic by a good margin in the "total" column. I almost didn't publish it as Keyword Tool showed only 170 monthly global visits, but I've already had 38 organic visits only 2 1/2 days after indexing and it's climbing rapidly. Maybe I'm finally learning to do something right(I can hope, at least! )
It's a good day!
Thanks to all who have given advice and help - it's been invaluable!
Congratulations wilderness! May the Hubpages force be with you!
Congratiulations wilderness!Hopefully many more sales will follow:)
What you have to think about, and learn in your heart, is that it is possible to make quite a bit of money online. It starts with earning just a little, then as you earn larger amount,s a larger sense of confidence and purpose emerges and you're truly on your way.
My online biz began with a sale of a dahlia and a $2.30 commission. I thought it was the most wonderful thing that I had put up a webpage, somebody bought something, and I was going to get paid - without ever handling that dahlia. There were no forums for me to check in with, I waited two months, to see if I was going to really get paid. And when the first check arrived for $47, I was truly giddy and knew that I didn't want to do anything else.
That's a neat story, Nellie - thanks for sharing.
Yes, that's kind of where I sit. No income to speak of yet, but the little things that indicate it's possible and coming keep happening. Like the Amazon sale, or going from $.02 the first month to 150 times that the second.
By themselves they mean nothing - just chance and coincidence, but they keep happening and it gives me, at least confidence that it will succeed in time.
Maybe I better start selling Dahlias! Thanks again, Nellie.

Never thought I would see my Amazon daily earnings being greater than my HubPages earnings!

Great news. I just had an email saying that international earnings can now be paid by direct credit to a local bank account. Yay! I hold off claiming mine because of the extortionate charges of paying in a foreign currency cheque.Here's the email..."We have good news to share. You can now...

We have another thread connected to this, but no-one from the staff side has responded. The recent changes in the structure of Amazon commission seem to have had a detrimental affect. While the number of sales has not decreased, earnings have halved this month.89 shipped sales (103 total sales so...

I stopped filling in the Amazon affiliate registration because it mentioned paying by check? Does anyone actually still do this? Does Amazon?

We are going to increase Amazon earnings for most of you! Amazon is becoming part of the HP Earnings program. In early November folks will have the opportunity to switch to get paid their Amazon earnings through the HP Earnings program. For new Hubbers, this will greatly simplify...

My Amazon report for Saturday the 1st of March still shows 0 clicks and 0 sales. The other days have updated normally.Initially I assumed it might be a problem with Amazon reporting or a glitch, which would be fixed in time, but it's getting to be a rather old glitch.Strangely enough if I look at...
