    The good news is I just noticed that I received my first Amazon sale!

    The bad news is that Google doesn't want us providing relevant product recommendations in our informational hubs anymore, so it may be my last sad

    Congratulations! If you're making money off a hub, I wouldn't alter it yet. I think the problem is with hubs containing a high number of product listings and little information. I have reduced the number of amazon capsules in many of my hubs, but I have kept the ones that are selling.

    Congratulations!  It's always thrilling to get your first amazon sale.  I agree with leahlefler.. you don't have to remove all your amazon links, just reduce the number according to 50 words per link as required.  Again congrats!

    Congratulations Mike. I know the feeling. I just received my first few Amazon sales back in February.

    Great job!  It's a great feeling, enjoy it.

    And remember to not just rely on one source of income.  There are plenty of ways to make money online other than amazon.  Diversifying helps you weather any "storms" such as the Google shakeup

    That's great! Good job. I haven't made a sale yet on Amazon even though I had lots of daily clicks on my autoblog. Anyway, don't think that this will be your last. You have endless opportunities here.
