    Does hubpages get a percentage of views for amazon links?

    I hovered over some amazon links from various hubbers and the tracking code sometimes reads hubpages-20. So when clicked on the associate fee would go to hubpages-20.

    Is this a change? I thought we got 100% earnings as a amazon associate?

    This is true if the Id reads for the tracking code for the hubber but is 40% of the time the associate ID changed to hubpages ID?

    I thought this was only true for adsense? Did I miss something? Please post link where this states this please I cant find it.

    Thanks WP

      Yes. 40%.

      No. It was never 100% AFAIK.


      Check - "Making Money on HubPages" Section.

        Okies Thank you skyfire.

        With all the changes my head is spinning. I guess I do recall this I just never payed to much attention to it.

        Traffic losses is taking its toll.

        I'm not sure what direction to approach to spend my time wisely promoting or writing something that is going to have a positive income stream.

        Grrr - what to do.. what to do  Thanks smile smile smile
