    I've been making progress with getting moneys from adsense however, despite my best efforts after 8 months I have yet to make any money with Amazon. I'm considering just removing the amazon boxes from my hubs because that way they'll look more appealing. Thoughts, question, comments?

    P.S. I actually got an email from Amazon asking my why I'm so bad at selling their crap lulz.

      I haven't had much success with Amazon either but one of the main reasons is that I wasn't focusing on promoting products. In November I read several hubs specifically targeted at increasing Amazon revenue, wrote several hubs based on that information wouldn't you know it-I made $45.

        Hmmm can you give me a couple examples of these Amazonian hubs? I'd give you a big round of applause, and jazz hands.

        Very True.

        Also, I think Nellie Hoxie is amazing. (She is my hero). I learn alot by reading her hubs and reading her forum threads. Here is a forum thread that I found very helpful.

    Falsor it looks like most of your hubs are informational hubs which is great for adsense. But I find that I make most of my Amazon money from my product review lenses. Try This. Think about a product that you couldn't be without. Then write a hub about that product. Add some Amazon modules about that product. I bet you will start seeing sales. smile

    By the way, I only just started earning Amazon money in the last 5 months or so (last month I earned over $600. Am I an expert? No Way! But this strategy is working for me. Maybe it will work for you too.

    It takes time. Keep writing hubs.

      So what your saying is... I should be the Billy Mays of the interwebs?

      Many thanks *gives you very large hypothetical hug*
