I have amazon sales always buy now and now the only sales i'm seeing are from my website nothing from hubpages links. Anyone else seeing this. Or have any suggestions on what to do. I've check each channel and nothing.
Since the algo change, traffic and earnings have been down. However I've had three sales this month, so something is still working.
Amazon works fine for me at $119 for this month....erm with only over $5 coming from hubpages that is!
Thanks for the replies guys. Ryan traffic was down at first and now is better than ever, congrats waynet thats were i'm usually at for hubpages midmonth thats why i'm confused. That's why i'm confused if traffic is great for the same hubs as before idk maybe it's a slow month. its a bummer now i guess it's time to focus on my own niche websites. Any pointers?
I have noticed that ever since the change my clicks on adsense and Amazon have been way down.
It's like the people you want to see your stuff is no longer getting to your pages or something. Instead your getting people who seem to have stumbled onto your site.
Thankfully my adult sites are going strong.
Lucky you, yea like I said i'm gonna venture off and do some niche building and really go into depth on SEO. This new google thing is horrible.
I have done pretty well on Amazon through hubpages, and despite a brief dip following the algorithm change - I had two days without earning anything - things are back to normal. My traffic is back up where it was pre-algorithm change give or take 10%. Now, so are the Amazon sales.
Way down. About 30% of traffic and 20% of sales.
I must take a leaf out of michifus' book perhaps.
I was hit pretty hard, and lost 40% of my views, but since that fateful day, things are improving and I´m not that far off where I was. Not sure if it is something Hubpages is doing behind the scenes, as I certainly haven't done anything since. Maybe Google took pity on me after banning a couple of my new websites! Could be internal traffic I guess, not checked in that much depth. Just enjoying the moment
It does seem that the dust is settling a little. There have been a couple of bounces up to about 50% of previous traffic levels. But the quality of that extra traffic looks poor (no rise in sales).
I know on average I took a 60 place (6 page) drop in the SERPS for all my KWs when I checked 1 week after the change.
Personally, I'm going to sit the month out and do recheck of where my 900 targeted keywords are ranking then.
I'm hoping the bounce will have settled 5 weeks after the change so I can assess when / if / what I'm going to do!
I hope that this dust does settle a little bit more. Yea its weird it is like the traffic is the wrong traffic. One of my top selling amazon hubs is no getting double the traffic like over 100 views a day but not one sale. It's weird. Thats why I was wondering if amazon was still working.
So i figured out what the problem was. For my tracking ID hubpages put a generic one and mine wasn't in their so after I re-entered it and save it twice it went back to having my tracking name. That was nerve racking i dont want to know the money I lost.

I've never generated a cent from these two programs and they've also never really worked properly. Constantly my adsense claims its active then I'm not approved, then it just mucks up everything. I'm not making any...

Ok, so today I noticed that for the past several months, since I've been at HubPages, my amazon affiliates ID was wrong... I somehow managed a "!" at the end of my ID. But, I could have sworn that it was there...
