    I am signed up for both
    I am able to look and see what I'm earing.............It always says $0.00
    But I noticed a couple of times I had gotten clicks....I forget how many

    DO YOU NEED PEOPLE TO ACTUALLY PURCHASE TO MAKE MONEY? OR JUST TO CLICK ON YOUR AD? (I'm very confused)

    Am I set up ok? (I think I am). Will I ever make money?
    (so confused)

    Thankyou

    Hi guys!

    If you set your google correctly, your status should say "Active".  Regarding Amazon, your status should say "Set" if it was done correctly.  Anything else than those means that you need to set it up properly.

      Where exactly do I have to look for the word "Active"? In the google adsense account or in hubpage's stats for each hub we have?

          Yeah, it says Active... Thanks. I just don't understand why it takes this long. It looks like people are clicking but it's been in 0.82 cents for a while! lol

            yeah my total is $5.50 in 3 months
            From here on, the more popular we get, it should improve is what I understand.

    On your affiliate settings page (under your account section) you should have a random string of numbers and letters in your amazon and adsense boxes. This means they are connected to your HP account.

    Adsense - you get paid per click.
    Amazon - you get paid each time you sell something through your affiliate link. You do not get paid for clicks. You start at a 4% commission each month which will go higher the more you sell.
