      That is awesome! Congratulations on your first Amazon sale and Adsense clicks. That's the think about Amazon. People can buy so many thing there, it can be good when they visit through out link.

      I hope you'll have a great year.

    Good for you!  It's great to see something happening, isn't it?  And don't knock 10 small things; that raises your percentage for the big ones to come!

      Widerness,

      Thanks yes, every little things add up, you are so right! Hopefully, it will be $1 then $10 and then.... $11 and more....*dreaming* I make a little with my blog but HP first earning is great feeling for sure.

    Especially important if your on progressive payments for referral rates, since you start @ 4% each month and it goes up to 6% after selling just 7 items, so lots of small purchases can help smile

    You can check out the full details on this on Amazons help section with clicking help on the top right of the site, then;

    select 'advertising fees'
    then select 'what items qualify for advertising fees, and how are the fees calculated?'

    you will then have the full details on percentages and payments,

    hope it helps

        Cookingdiva,

        My pleasure,

        I believe the original intent of these forums was to allow Hubbers to be able to communicate with being able to assist one another.

        Good luck in your future endeavors here.

      steffer,

      With amazon is hit and miss, sometimes people buy many things and sometimes none. I wish and hope you make some sale soon, you have great content so I have no doubt, it will happen. Good luck to all of us.

    Outstanding!!  I just looked back at Amazon stats.  I didn't make a cent until Feb, when I made less than 40 cent!  Last month I made almost $20, this month about $30 so far.  And I don't even write "Amazon hubs".

      rmcryane,

      That is simply amazing that you do not do amazon hubs and yet make money. I want to have mixture of poems, cooking and amazon hubs to satisfy my creative and money woes :-) let's see. It might be doable.

    Congratulations Diva!.. smile

    I have got over 150 clicks to Amazon products but I haven't made a sale yet. I am trying to see what I am doing wrong.

    Keep up the good work!

      Gary,

      Thank you. Yes my amazon click to purchase ratio is about 1%, so I hear you about clicks and not sale. I do not think you are doing anything wrong, it is all about hit and miss. Amazon works when person is ready to buy reads your hub. Good luck.
